Cubase 7.0.4 finally working (sorta)

So, I know the ASIO spikes don't have a firm 100% fix YET and Steinberg really needs to make this happen in 7.0.5, but for me their patch .txt file worked. So after all these months I can actually use the Cubase 7 effectively.

Sure, some stuff looks HORRIBLE, but they really seem to have started and built Cubase 7 from the ground up. So many functions that weren't there in 6.5 are now available and are beautiful, best DAW right now in my opinion.

BUT, Steinberg, DON'T EVER RELEASE A VERSION LIKE YOU DID WITH THE ORIGINAL CUBASE 7.0, that was a piece of SHITE. SERIOUSLY (power user since SX 2.2).

Thanks for the lovely functionality, but horrendous esthetics, I can't name all the places where this program fails and shines.

Overall, the new build of Cubase 7 has potential, it was just left up to us to BETA test it. Especially us Mac OSX users. The performance is still not up there where it needs to be, to be honest. I think most users can agree on that.

I am using 7.0.4 on OSX as well and it seems more stable... but maybe I am not using it as extensively as you are

I had actually held out on upgrading to Cubase 7 until 7.0.4, because that sounded like the first time they had it together.

But yesterday when I started a brand new project with it, I was getting ASIO spikes (and resulting audio pops) with only 2 VSTi MIDI tracks and one audio track. It was driving me crazy trying to figure out if there was something wrong with my PC.

But then I opened the same project in Cubase 6.5 and it worked perfectly. (Kind of cool that you can open C7 projects in C6.5!) I guess I'm still back on 6.5 for now until 7 improves. Glad to know it wasn't just me, though.

Turns out disabling ASIO-Guard in Cubase 7 fixed the ASIO spikes I was having.

Yeah some have said that helped...This is a new feature, I have yet to see if it's going to help me or hinder me since I'm mixing a record for the next month or so and I'll be using it extensively.

I think it's more about recording, but we'll see.

Hello all,

Pleas let me point you out to an article in our Knowledge Base that explains how the ASIO Guard works inside Cubase and Nuendo.

Best regards,
GN

Been really liking this update up until yesterday when for no reason the mixer decides to make itself wide and even wider if you keep going in and out of it.. And it doesn't follow the channels properly again meaning I have to resize then find the channel. Using only one monitor this is a ballache. Just seen there is a 0.5 update so hopefully that will sort it. Very very annoying.. Apart from that and a few bugs like mixer taking its time to open and still not huge fan on the mixers looks its pretty cool and has some seriously good features.. Can't wait for Cubase 8 that's when everything will be ironed out I bet.

Hello Ruste,

Please download the Cubase 7.0.5 update, that has fixed the random size changes of the mixer, and many other bugs.

Best regards,
GN

@ Guillermo N

Regarding ASIO Guard, seems to me this feature promised a lot but fails to deliver properly. I've noticed in many cases where people were having various problems with crashing and spiking that the steinberg reps on the forum advised them to turn ASIO Guard off. I myself found that as a project became larger with more tracks (and I don't mean huge projects - typical really) Cubase began to freeze. Turning off ASIO guard cured this.
When will ASIO guard be fixed or retired?

(BTW, using 7.05, and don't have any of the problems being reported about the GUI nor many other oddball problems others are having - never did. Cubase 7 has been running stable on my system since 7.00. Not saying Cubase has no issues or bugs, it does, many in fact, but they are being addressed albeit slowly.)

#11 Hello BriHar,

As it says on the Knowledge base article that I posted it does have some limitations, and obviously it will be constantly improved.
And that you have to enable or disable the ASIO Guard for each VST Instrument individually or disable it accordingly.

Note: As soon as an audio channel is monitor enabled or a VST Instrument track is record enabled that channel/track will be switched from ASIO Guard to real time (and back). The resulting fade in (and fade out) of the corresponding audio signal may be perceived as a small interruption.

Best regards,
GN
