Does anyone know if Steinberg have any plans for a new surface controller for cubase pro 8?
Considering the fact that it is now Yamaha/Steinberg, I would imagine that ‘the powers that be’
would prefer you to get a ‘Nuage’ machine.
I have read somewhere on this forum that it works well with C8P.
Since buying the 5 figure Nuage is so far from being a possibility for most people, I can recommend one of the Nektar Panorama series, as it has deep Cubase integration, and the motorised fader on the keyboard versions is great. I use it non stop.
How much is Nuage? It looks amazing but I’m guessing its around £50k for the whole thing?
I would love it but I could not afford something like that. A cut down, modular mini Nuage for Project studios, priced between £1k - £3k would be much more reasonable. Say £1k per module. Just dreaming out loud.
£50k I think I will stick with my mouse and keyboard. Unless you are earning sh1tloads that is insane money.
However, I like the look of the P1.
I own two Euphonix MC Mix (Avid Artist Mix) and i’m totaly satisfied! I don’t use the mouse for mixing anymore, sometimes i even turm my screens off
Thanks for the input guys, I’ll check out some of those options.
As I said before curteye… I believe we are all going to be dumped on unless you own a Nuage Console
In what way?
Have to add a plug for the Mackie Control Universal.
There are quite as few Control Surface Manufacturers who use the protocol - I only have day in day out experience with the latest MCU Pro units . . .
For a quick idea of what you can do check out: http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=181&t=51282#p312935
Moving and Touch sensitive faders put it over the P1 and a number of other units for me. Must haves for writing and updating automation (touch mode).
Now . . there are some limitations right now with C8 - mainly the ability to hide channels form the Visibility Tab in the Mix Console - but I am quite certain these will be worked out in the coming maintenance release (this has been stated by Steinberg). I am still on 7.53 exclusively because of this.
I have 24 channels (1 Master Unit and 2 Extenders) for $2500 US.
Nonsense. Like every other bug in version 8, this will get worked out at some point.
Wouldn’t that be like FIAT expecting their customers to buy a Ferrari? .
Yup. And it is on the list of fixes for the March update!
