    Arrow SX3 is gonna be out Sept. 6th?- Let the rumours Fly!

    The German Steinberg site has announced Top-10 new features of Cubase SX3 (there boasting over 70 new ones but heres the major ones)
    * Audio Warp: Realtime Time Stretching and Pitch Shifting offer extensive new audio editing and processing capabilities, including ACID® File support: loops automatically adopt a project’s tempo; audio files can follow tempo changes in realtime.
    * Intuitive Play Order Track for pattern-based arranging adds a new level of creative music editing. Divide your song into sections, and then re-arrange it on the fly. Compare alternative versions of your song and then convert them back into a linear form for mixdown and mastering.
    * New Inplace Editor supports ultra-fast direct MIDI event editing from within the project page. Edit MIDI events in context with audio or video.
    * New MIDI Device Maps / Panels support direct access to external MIDI hardware with user-definable graphic editing panels. Import VST Mixer Maps or create your own editing panels, even for the Track Inspector or the mixer’s channel strip.
    * User-definable Workspaces (window layouts) help organizing your desktop. Create and save a separate workspace for each step of the production process. Switch Workspaces on the fly, as if working on multiple computers or monitors.
    * Studio Connections “Total Recall” support (optional integration of Yamaha’s Studio Manager 2). The first step into a new dimension of software/hardware integration. This modular editing system builds a powerful bridge between the virtual and physical studio. Opening a project can recall an entire studio setup within seconds.
    * External FX Plugins allow for direct integration of external hardware effects processors into the VST audio mixer. Use your favorite outboard gear just like plugins – including automatic delay compensation.
    * Extended Freeze function for virtual instruments and audio tracks with added flexibility and improved performance. Freeze virtual instruments with or without insert effects. Then automatically unload the instrument to free up RAM. Freeze audio tracks with insert effects to free up even more CPU performance.
    * A Dummy Plugin automatically replaces missing plugins when a project is transferred to a different system. This project can be saved and sent back – the original plugins will automatically open up again.
    * New part-based Volume Envelopes for direct control of dynamics. Fix level problems on the fly without wasting automation tracks. Then move events with their volume envelopes.
    * User-definable Color Coding for tracks and VST mixer channels provides more clarity and better orientation – especially in complex projects

    Word has it that its about $150 for the SX2 > 3 upgrade. The user definable Workspaces is a VERY cool thing (do not underestimate). I`ve been enjoying this feature in Samplitude and its like custom snapshots of your project that u can toggle between. Cubase.net is all abuzzz ..Rich

    I've been struggling withthe prospect of trying to sync ACID to Nuendo across two machines - not looking forward to the kinks there. It will be nice to be able to put the loops directly in SX3's project view and work from there through VST System Link.

    I'm excited about all of the features - especially the definable workspace and automatic color coding. When you start a project at 96 tracks (MIDI, VSTi, and audio) it's easy get into the wrong neighborhood rather quickly. Two thumbs up from me...

    WOW SX3 features look pretty nice, especially the play order thingy and the audio warp... very interesting. let's hope it will be more bug free than the other SX's before

    Looks good. Im excited! I always try to stay on top of sequencer upgrades as I feel its the "central nerve system" of our studio these days.

    4GB of addressable memory space with WinXP64



    HELLL-OOOO HALion 3 running VSL instruments!

    Houston starts looking for the 64-bit driver for his FW-1814 on the M-Audio site - and looks for Opteron system on NewEgg.com while his wife is not looking...
