Default Cubase 5 now at Romford

I've left a display version of Cubase 5 at the Romford store so you can now check out the new functions in person. The version I have left is as per the full version but without the Halion Symphonic Orchestra addition (I will add this in the next week or so)
Get down to the Romford store to check it out!
If you're waiting to view it at another branch, full installers will be with branch managers in the next few days.

It comes with a 90 day evaluation copy on 2 DVDs plus the option of a cheap upgrade (just over 90) to a permanent copy (but they are 16 bit samples if that makes any difference for you).

That's not bad value for money given the cost of the main thing.

Worth considering, I guess.

Cheers for the info, Dave - I wasn't even aware of its existence to be honest. I remember the old Halion Strings, but that's about it.

16 bit isn't the best, but then again does it really matter in the mix?

In a mix with other instruments, then 16-bit is quite acceptable... however, if you were doing solely orchestral pieces you'd want 24-bit.

Gonna have a bit of a marathon try-out of C5 over the weekend. Installed it this morning and will also be setting it up in a 64-bit environment on a dual-boot setup.

My plans have been a bit compromised. Have needed to get a couple track mixes finished and have stuck with C4 whilst I finish them off, but will get stuck more into C5 as soon as they're done with tonight.

C'mon Dave, it would be MUCH smarter to load C5 in now mid-session and pray for the best. Tempt fate a little, will ya?

i see quite a few cubase 5 users are complaining its hammering there computers cpu especially the reverance plug in they say this uses up way too much juice for it too be used for more than one send track on a normal spec computer and even some high spec users are saying its a big drain on there cpu usage so there using other reverb plug ins until steinberg can fix it.

from what ive been reading on the steinberg sites people do love cubase 5 but alot are still sticking with cubase 4 until steinberg release some patches too fix the bugs and cpu usage problems..theres some people who have been working with cubase 4 for a year or two now with no probs and there computers have handeled it fine but they are saying theyll need to upgrade there computers to get cubase 5 running at acceptable levels

come on dave give us your views mate

I've only tried C5 on a couple of different songs... and then not to do a serious mix, just to check it out. I can't say it seemed to be using any more CPU resource than C4 did. As for REVerence using a lot of CPU... it's a convolution reverb, what do you expect??!! Also, people aren't always aware that the CPU required to process a convolution reverb is proportional to the length of the impulse file being applied.

As and when I get stuck into C5 I'll be posting my thoughts and findings
