I was given Cubase SE 1.07 tonight by a friend as a gift. Upon checking out the GPO RESOURCE PAGES I noticed there was Cubase SX and 4.0. Now, is SE and older Cubase or newer? Should I bother with it or would it be to my advantage?
SE is a toned down version of SL which in turn is a toned down version of SX. There are some missing features, but I don't know if you'll notice them, and some limitations. There is an upgrade path to SL and then to SX if you are interested one day. Here is a link to the product features comparisons:
Not newer then SX. SE is a limited version of SX with some functions missing . I got it bundled with some hardware, but it never worked on my computer (problems with dongle installation).
If you now work with Cubase 4: Go for SE.
I installed it tonight and everything seem to go OK. It is definitely above 4.0 and there are some nice much appreciated features. However, I ran into the Latency problem again and tying to figure it out by the book. Sometimes I wish they would get to the meat of the subject instead of rambling. Oh well I guess it serves it's purpose.
Any fast clue on how to fix this?
Tanks or jeeps (which ever you prefer)
I don't know a thing about SE, but I figure the tried and true method of checking your default audio device (in Audio Systems or something) will solve this problem. Make sure that the MME or Direct X device isn't selected. I think you said you have an Audigy so there should be an Audigy ASIO device driver in there somewhere. Wish I could help more, but I don't have any experiece with SE.
Once I get the latency problem solved this looks to be a promising sequencing tool. I love the layout and straightforward paths. Wow, importing GPO was a no brainer (and that's a big plus for this old brain). I can't wait to get home and play with it more tonight.
Just getting over that stupid latency problem. Manual wasn't much help.
