cubasis and multitrack recording - help me please!

Hi,


I recently got cubasis 5.0 on the assumption that it'd let me record three, four, however many tracks at the same time. I can't work out how to do this though in the program - even when I have 4 inputs all going in ok, it only records one of them onto one track! I'm starting to fear that this stupid program may actually not allow multitrack recording. Can that be correct? That's amazingly rubbish if so.

Please reply to me if you can help, please!

Thanks,


John

hello super john, welcome to HRC.

I am not a Cubasis user myself, however, the product information at pinnaclesys.com says nothing of it being able to record more than a single track at a time. Remember, CUbasis is an entry level program, the little brother to Cubase, so it's very possible that Cubasis does not do that. However, there are several other applications that do.

n-Track, MultitrackStudio, Cakewalk Home Studio, Krystal Audio Engine (which is FREE by the way) and others...

I've never used cubasis or cubase, but you probably have set up each track you wish to record on, prior to recording, so that each one accepts a signal from a different input. For instance track one would be 1L and track two would be 1R and track three would be 2L and so on. I'm sure someone else will be able to help you a little more solidly though.

What kind of soundcard are you recording into by the way?

Hi,


Cubasis 4.0 allowed users to multi-record, so I tried ordering it, only to be told 'hey, cubasis vst 5.0 is out!' So I got that instead. I've searched for solutions to this problem and all of the questions for 4.0 said to go to 'Options>Multirecord'. But that's not there in 5.0!

I am using an Omnistudio + Delta 66. It should be able to take 4 inputs at a time. They're all going in ok, Cubasis registers them all at the same time... but won't record them at the same time.

I can't believe it wouldn't have that option, especially since they'd have had to take it out of 4.0 to make 5.0!

yup, if 4 could then 5 darn well better.

Most application, itn each track in the track view (not mixer view) has some sort of "properties" dialog for each track, in those properties is generally where one selects the input which that track should record from.

Sorry I can't be more help, but like I said, I am not a Cubasis (or Cubase) user...

Hi,

Thanks for trying to help. I can select the different tracks and inputs as you say, but all that really does is let me monitor each track. When I press 'Record', it reverts to the one track selected in the main arrangement window. Useless. I can't select more than one track at once, basically, even when I've got the inputs set up properly. What were these guys on when they wrote this program?

Thanks,

John

You may have found a bug in the application...I would contact Pinnacle and see.

Hold down shift when selecting multiple tracks.

Yep, Im with dB on that. Cubasis should, as jues stated enable multiple tracks by holding down shidt when selecting them. If it doesnt then you have a software problem and should contact piccacle for sure.
