Steinberg states "it sounds better than anything before it!" Have you found any "sound" difference with version 7?

That statement is referring to the newly added processing tools.

If you saturate every channel with the channel strip, of course it will sound different.

The same audio files mixed together without any processing won't sound different at all.

It's just a marketing hype thing to say.

FWIW, v7 is the best .0 release I've seen from Steinberg (been using Cubase since the VST days). Not saying it's perfect, but it is definitively usable and far more stable than all the 6.5.X releases. Those were pretty bad to be honest.

Marketing... :-)

However, the Vintage Compressor MkII sounds better that it's predecessor and VariAudio 2.0 has better note detection rendering much better result than before (dare I say close to Melodyne).

Audio Warping

Hey guys and gals. I am still using Cubase 5. One thing I find annoying is audio warble when I use the elastic audio functions to correct the timing of drums, bass etc.

Has anyone noticed any difference in quality in this area between 6 & 7?
Thankies!! :D

the Timestretch: elastique pro - Pitch (it wasnt there in Cubase 5 - right? only Mpex and some unnamed one)

is pretty great for Drum loops

-- and because I am a nice guy I made you an example of a 130+ bpm Acoustic drum loop (taken from the winstons) -> timestretched to 175 bpm - and afterwards pitch up 4 tones (cause too deep it sounds unnatural)

Zippyshare.com - aammeeennn.mp3

of course resampling will always be better - but for a quickie this is enough (it doesnt need time to calculate - just stretch the audio to you desired length)

Thanks

Hey thanks very much and that is a very sexy loop! :D

Was that Cubase6 or Cubase7? You sped it up... how does it do with slowing it down? I heard someone use ProTools Xform to slow down a track that had just a voice and acoustic guitar on it by half, and I didn't hear any warble at all! :D

Timing Correction

It's actually more for the timing correction. At the moment I correct the timing of everything manually - esp drums and percussion obviously - because the warble created when I use v5 to do it automatically is quite audible... so yeah any more/less warble v6 vs v7? perchaps?? :D

Hell, to call it a summing engine or even an algorithm is an insult to anyone even remotely interested in mathematics.
