Don’t know if this happens to any of you but…
I noticed that cubase 9 midi notes timing mess around ! I discovered that by using the fantastic Sample Modeling Swam saxo vsti.
In this sax vsti, one can control normal/squeak & overblow sax notes with D1 velocity note. And I used to draw a looOong D1 note, then cut it in some places in order to adjust those D1 parts velocity. So when playing back, more D1 velocity is high, more squeaked and overblowed are played the notes.
But I noticed that on the Swam sax gui, the squeak & overblow indicator wasn’t showing if notes are played squeak & overblow ; and I didn’t hear any squeak & overblow notes.
So, I tried to leave a little gap between the D1 notes to see if it would work better… And indeed, with a 2 or 3 ticks, the squeak & overblow are sounding correctly !
But this means also that if you take a long note that you cut (with the split tool), cubase 9 will not play several notes ! You’ll need to leave a 2 or 3 ticks gap between the midi notes in order to hear a new note on each one !!
This issue has a lot of very bad consequences ! I need to edit each note length precisely to get the midi phrase I wish !
There was not such an issue in cubase 8.5 ! I consider that as an enormous bug/issue !!
This cubase version is definitely a piece of sh…i…t !!
I really hope Mr Steinberg is going to release an FREE improved version SOON !! For the moment, cubase 9 is a pure swindle that crashes every hours.
My next project will be done with Studio One and if I like this daw, bye-bye cubase. J’en ai trop plein le cul, ça m’fait mal.
