Sorry but can you be a bit more specific?
In what respect does it sound "better"?
Do you found the sound "warmer"?
Maybe it sounds more "analog"?
Can you do a null test???

More depth! More engaging! Smoother highs! Deeper lows! More analogue! Warmer! More high-rez! More bloom! More authority! More 3D!

But why should Cubase 6.5 sounds different to Cubase 6 ???

Steinberg itself have said, that the new things in Cubase 6.5 are two new VST-synths (Retrologue and Padshop), an updated audio quantize function (audio warp is integrated in quantize menue), soundcloud export, new Amp-rack presets, some new file format support - but they said nothing about a new audio engine or higher headroom or something like that.

Ok - we will see - anyway I will be at "Frankfurt Musik Messe 2012" and ask them.
They should know what they have changed.

It does indeed.

I compared a song I mixed on Cubase 6 with a song that Andy Wallace mixed on Cubase 6.5, and the song mixed on Cubase 6.5 sounded significantly better than the one mixed on Cubase 6!

There you go.

I can not only confirm that my mixes do indeed sound better on 6.5 when compared to C6, but I also look significantly better looking when listening to 6.5. Well done Steinberg - an all round great effort!

The stereo field is so wide that tracks don't sit In the mix, they sit AROUND the mix.

My neighbours complain when I pan stuff too wide. It ends up smack bang in the middle of their living room.

And when I did a mix at another studio I accidentally clipped a passing cyclist on the road outside the studio while doing a surround mix.

Beware!

Actually, the SM7b is the third revision of the original SM7. The SM7a addressed noise issues, and improved the mount. The SM7b added the bigger foam windscreen. I don't recall anyone demanding their original SM7 be upgraded for free.

That's interesting, because I always felt like listening to Logic made me feel fat and bloated but I could never prove it because I don't have a scale or a full-length mirror. I'm looking for a robust methodology to test these theories...




I'm looking for a witty, thoroughly engaging DAW with just a clever hint of a frisky, playful aftertaste.
