I'm looking forward to this major upgrade a lot. So many interesting new features. It's unbelievable.
I have one question though: still no "fast render" mode? I have searched everywhere but it seems to be absent of the list....we all need this I assume...

Anyways... Does the nuage controller work with Cubase 7 ? or is it exclusive to Nuendo 6 ?

What about the pricing of the nuage controller ? I'm guessing lots of $$$$ for this thing.

We surely need a high-quality-Pro control surface for Cubase 6 & 7 that's made for project studios, rather than Post-Production facilities/Nuendo and hopefully with a reasonable price tag. I would spend up to $1500. as long as they don't offer another small plastic box modular system = Steinberg's CMC series

There is a full-screen mode but I have no idea what this means... is this eventually some kind of new windows management only available in this mode?

Not a Cubase user but am curious. I've read many positive things about Cubase MIDI sync/timing, also about how it deals with PDC, which make it quite appealing to me.
I was wondering if there were some equivalent to Ableton's racks and if you can also set custom min/max values for parameter modulation (be it inside macros or when mapped to MIDI CCs). Thanks !

Timing is very good in Cubase but they had not such "double buffering stuff" like Afaik Logic. So people often have to set higher buffers to have a crackle free audio system.
This has changed now with the ASIO Guard (if understand this correctly, this is some kind of internal extra buffering for better latency and increased CPU usage)

There is a mention of this in a bit of text on the product page, but I'm a little bot worried as it doesn't get a mention in either the C7 or N6 videos.

it's such an important feature for mixing I really hope they have implemented a proper grouping system in the mixer.
I got the word from a mod. on the Cubase forum that Cubase 7 has now got these features in the mixer .... wow.

This platform is rapidly getting close to be my perfect DAW.

Hopefully decreased CPU usage.

What if you upgraded now to 6.5 wouldn't you then get the voucher for free upgrade to 7, thus costing $199?

What happened, did they fire their designer? Ugly GUI.

Exept for that, I love the channel strip idea, I was hoping for this to come. I just hope other (Waves, Slate ++) will be able to add plugins to the channel strip.

...that's just your opinion.
You can hide the colorful (?) "channel strip" view - then it looks like similar to Pro Tools or Logic! (with the "blue Insert" slots)

great job Steinberg!

Great new features.

I think there's a lot of space wasted in the new mixer, just look at the EQ section.

Also, why the huge blue inserts?

It looks like it may have bee rushed, what with some of the competition making their announcements recently.

It's a shame. But it's not too bad, might be better in use.

I noticed the send controls are nice and large now. Still sliders, prefer knobs, but much better.

How much for the upgrade from 5 to 7? More than 200 would be a no-go for me

Still no sidechaining.. Un-freakin-believeable..

But i really like the looks of the new mixer, the window where you can choose what channels to see in the mixer is one of the two things i really wanted to see. That and sidechaining with non-Steinberg plugins. At least they added some new plugins, but still, I can't believe that they didn't add proper sidechaining.

I'm surprised that there aren't "skins" (a.k.a. multiple GUI's) like in DP8.
Looking forward to reading a list of new features. The videos don't seems to have covered everything.

If your using the full Cubase you can side-chain with non VST3 plug-ins. It's a little bit of a work-around though.

There are also many very good VST3 plug-ins for side-chaining,

Fabfilter Pro-C
All softube Compressors
Yamaha vintage 260 compressor and Portico
Elysia Mpressor
DNR MixControlPro
Waves H-Comp

There's probably more.

I use Artist so I can only side-chain with VST3 compressors, there is no work-around. However, the compressors in the channel strip all have SC which is very convenient. If they are good It may make life simpler.

What? Native side-chaining has been available for quite some time.

Seriously?I didn't know Softube and H-Comp where VST 3 how the hell did I miss that!! have just been doing the workaround with the group channels and stuff.

Thanks a billion man, I'm definitly going to buy some of those with my next paycheck. Jesus, i had no idea those where VST 3. Thanks man
