  • Had Pro Tools and Cubase in my life… finally I've choosed Cubase, for so many reasons, in comparation with the Avid product, that I have no space here to write about πŸ™‚

  • πŸ€–πŸ€–πŸ€–Cubase people please read this:🎷🎷🎷

    We need need need need

    1-bounce to video in Cubase
    I am tired of scoring my movie in Cubase and then bounce audio to the video in logic for directors.

    2-a better way to make a shareable instrument template between various cues of a same project.
    (Something like what Digital performer dose with chunks)

    3-more smarter tools for film composers.

    4-ability to put streamers inside the video itself.

  • Dear steinberg my elicenser usb stick broke in half the other day luckily I have a extra one can you please make an aluminum elicenser stick just like the new ilok

  • I've had some intense arguments with pro engineers about why I don't use pro tools anymore, they get very worked up about it, I've been using cubase since 2002.

  • I am β€œa Logic Expert”, in the literal sense cause I work for a company that has the name of a certain fruit 🍎 , but I am still a Cubase user! Cause its years ahead of all DAWs in the world!

  • So now on the note of Film composing, maybe it's time to give us export to video? Its taking so much time out of my workflow at the moment

    Other than that, cubase rocks πŸ”₯

  • Great inspiring talk Mr. Zimmer. Thank you for treating us as equals. Thank you too Steinberg/Cubase for providing the tools.

  • i love cubase. but it's a little disingenuous to have a video about cubase featuring protools interfaces in the background. just sayin'…

  • This is awesome! I plan to visit California soon. Any ideas on how I could set up a visit to Hans Zimmer's facilities out there?

  • I loved this. I started with C-Lab and Steinberg at the same time on my Atari Mega 4. Me and my writing partner used to leap between C-Lab Creator and Pro 24 depending on what we were doing. For some things, the "Pattern" based way of working on Creator was better, but we preferred Pro 24 for our wilder ideas. We were probably being over precious, but we liked playing! I had a pile of Atari S900 samplers, an early hard-disk digital recorder editor (Fostex Foundation 2000 – amazing bit of kit), and an analogue desk.

    Later, I spent more time with Logic (the descendant of Creator), but then Apple bought Emagic and dumped Windows support for Logic. I had always had Cubase, but I upgraded (along with thousands of other users who cross-graded) to Cubase 4 (I think?), and have been exclusive with Cubase ever since.

    Some things have changed. When I abandoned Logic for Cubase, I think my "cutting edge" PC had 500mb of ram (less probably) and a tiny hard disk. I now have a 14 core i9, 64gb Ram, Terabytes of SSD, and a 34" curved monitor. I no longer have the Mega 4, but I found a floppy of Pro 24 in the back of a draw a while back with some floppies of samples for the S900 – some brass I recorded once, going by the faded label.

    Interestingly, I was playing with the Arranger Chain in Cubase the other day, and was suddenly reminded of working in Patterns on C-Lab creator. So now I have the best of both worlds!!
