This is my very first trial with Cubase Pro 8 (and Cubase, period).
Aside of fact I do not have meters moving (as per another post I made), here are some additional issues I am facing:
If I record an audio track (guitar), while monitoring before recording, sound is very clean. Once I record it, it end out like a heavy overloaded guitar recorded. Unless there is any ‘‘pre-loaded rack’’ in the background, I just can,t figure out what could be wrong in my routing to over-metalize my guit… (we are talking here of real guitar, audio track). (Possible I have chosen the template ‘‘rock’’ or ‘‘pop’’ song when first creating the project. (And… of course, since I do not have monitoring onscreen - else than on mixing board and audio interface, no way to see if anything hits hard in Cubase). (Oh and waveform on the track shows very decent - not like an overloaded track at all)
Once I finish recording, if I’m trying say, to go an hit File : Save (or Edit to Undo recording), I get a freeze for about 20 long seconds if not more before I can do it… and it freezes again if I go too fast and miss the right button thus do the process again… This is very annoying. And it seems only to do it after recording an audio track - not Instrument tracks.
One more very annoying : I am (as many of you) using dual monitoring. Why do I need to re-create everything every time I re-launch the same project ? (everything is back on one monitor ! … Never saw this issue in Pro Tools or Logic (same system).
Must tell I am using this on Mac OSX 10.8.5 (not ‘‘officially’’ supported, but many here appear to use CB Pro 8 on that)
i7 Core 2 duo, 8GB,
Mac OS X 10.8.5
RME Fireface 800 audio interface
Yamaha 02R v2 digital console
Cubase Pro 8 (new)
Pro Tools 11 (most of the times)
Logic Pro X (very occasional)
