Upgrade Cubase 7 if you haven't

There is nothing that upsets me more when working in the DAW than discovering latency issues by ear without a good reason. I'm at this point quite known for that over here, but for good reason I'm sure...

Lately I started noticing by ear that something was not completely right about the delay compensation regarding external effects in Cubase 7. In fact, I've been a bit concerned about latency in Cubase 7 ever since I got it, I was close to starting a thread about it over here. But first I scanned through the update history log at Steinberg.

Here is the thing to know: Cubase 7 in its original package measures the delay for external effects incorrectly. The update that fixes the issue was implemented in version 7.0.3:

R-6956 PLUG-IN: The External FX plug-in now measures the I/O latency correctly.

Time to start over with my Cubase 7 mixing...

A nice bi-effect of upgrading from v7.0.0 to v7.0.4 (current latest version), is that you get tons of UI fixes, it's almost like a new UI experience. The original version contained a broken mix console. We'll see more upgrades I'm sure, version 7 of Cubase got released a bit too early...

Another thing about Cubase 7 in its original form is that it was single session, each project had a life span of a single session, at least regarding projects containing VSTis. Because the next time you open the project, all the tracks are completely out of sync. The update won't fix that though, so you might actually have "lost" all the projects you recorded on older versions, at least I have... I am now looking into whether the latest version fixes that when recording from scratch. Stay tuned...

EDIT: Steinberg has finally fixed the track sync issue, the projects are no longer single session. *weeeeeeeeeee*

I open old projects every day, they all work fine. You must have some preferences set different. And you don't loose any projects if you don't overwrite them.

Hello SmoothVibe,

This could have been also a consequence of the Cubase preferences. If you have an older version of Cubase installed, Cubase 7 will import the Cubase 7 preferences, sometimes causing strange behaviours.
To solve this we recommend to delete the preferences of both Cubase 7 and the old version.

I am glad to hear that it is working fine for you know.

Best regards,
GN
