I come from a protools background. I am just making sure I understand right what Cubase 6 can and can’t do when it comes to elastic audio.
- With Cubase 6, they have added better hitpoint and quantize features. And from my experimentation, it is really a Beat Detective way of audio editing. Meaning, it quantizes region start times, based on hitpoints that you slice.
In comparison, Pro Tools offers that functionality through Beat Detective.
So, I can conclude that in terms of Beat detective functionality, Cubase is now the same. Great!
- With Cubase 6, and previous versions, you can create warp tabs, ala’ elastic audio in Pro tools. You can grab audio and move it around.
The main differences are that:
- Cubase 6 now adds Elastique (a better algorhthym) that will actually make it useable. Great!
- Pro tools allows you to drag it around the arrange page, however, Cubase only allows it in a separate sample edit window. Bummer!
ELASTIC AUDIO QUANTIZING
- With Cubase 6, you can’t actually quantize warp tabs. Is this correct?
- With Pro Tools you can quantize warp tabs!
Does this sound like a fair comparison - am I missing a functionality that I don’t know about in Cubase 6 for Warp tab quantizing???
Some great steps with Cubase 6.
