Version 3.7, from 1999, is described as "the first version to support VST instruments. Not only was it the first Cubase version to allow the use of VST instruments, but it was the first sequencer ever to support that format (since Steinberg invented the VST Instruments interface).". What were Cubase VST3.0 (1996) and Cubase VST3.5 (1997) named after, then? -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 19:20, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
- Thanks for pointing that out. I've amended the article, and included mention of Neon, which was presumably the first ever VST instrument. That part of the timeline threw me - I used to have VST32, which supported VST instruments, and it was odd that this was less advanced than VST 3.5, but of course the names have subtly different formats. -Ashley Pomeroy (talk) 18:40, 13 October 2014 (UTC)
Jargon and update
"comping"? Can someone vet this meme for jargon, please? If it is necessary (and I doubt it) then a fuller explanation of every jargon term used should be added in sub-memes.
The intro sounds like an outdated sales pitch by Steinberg, and it is certainly imbalanced in saying what was added in Cubase 6 and nothing about Cubase 7, let alone 7.5. You should list the principal features of the current edition and relegate the rest to a history section. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 18.104.22.168 (talk) 09:37, 27 August 2014 (UTC)
I believe "comping" is used in the context of editing the best bits of various takes into one version. See http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/apr11/articles/reaper-0411.htm for an example of its use. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ChumPocket (talk • contribs) 15:41, 29 October 2014 (UTC)
content from Pro-24
There is a separate article for Pro-24 which is currently a couple sentences that starts with Cubase, an oversized image, and a couple external links. Clearly not a stand-alone article, so I'm going to go ahead and turn it into a redirect. I'm copying the content here, however, to be worked into this article. Unfortunately I'm not sure how to do that given the current article structure and don't have time at the moment to reorganize from the structure that at the moment appears as a giant changelog. Incorporate how you see fit. Content collapsed below is a full copy of the current article less the categories and stub/orphan templates, with the image thumbnailed and reflist turned into reflist-talk. --— Rhododendrites talk \\ 17:57, 15 December 2014 (UTC)
Cubase evolved originally from Steinberg's 16 track MIDI recording software called Pro-16 for the Atari ST. The last version before Cubase was Pro 24 designated "Pro-24 III" and offered 24 tracks of Midi.
It would run on a TV or colour monitor in Low Res but by far the best option was to run in mono Hi res on the SM124 Atari Monitor. Even today it offers significantly better latency than Cubase on a PC or MAC. There are websites that offer solutions to take Pro24 *.snd files and upgrade them in steps to the modern Cubase equivalent, should you wish to revisit your earlier compositions.
This article could be better
I've spent much time in the last two years to make the german article better, before it was just a mess like the english one still is. Please have a look at it and decide if it makes sense to synchronize both articles. Google translation 22.214.171.124 (talk) 10:47, 17 December 2014 (UTC)
