After some reamping of many sound sources, including the click in Cubase (5 and 6, BTW), I learned that the click itself is reverse polarity. Well, some of you here may not see this as being a big deal, and in fact, you may skip using it entirely because something about it seems fubar as you use it - it doesn’t help the music. But it can be a great tool. I have to wonder, too, how many of you here have tried it and had complaints from your performers?
Well, this is a BIG DEAL, and if you play to a metronome regularily, this is not acceptable. If you are inclined to not be concerned about phase issues, and mix your project with the bass player reverse polarity to the guitar player, and run your drum kit with the overheads reverse polarity to each other, …well, you go then. But not at my house.
Steinberg should be horse-whipped for this.
