  • Cubase or Logic for MIR Pro

    Hello friends,

    which DAW does have the better sound and performance if I use the sequencer and MIR Pro on the same machine (12core 2.66 Mac Pro): Logic Pro 9 or Cubase 6? 

    Kind regards

    Alfred


  • Soundwise there shouldn't be any difference. Handlingwise Cubase seems to be more straight-forward and less restrictive ATM.

    I see - does that mean that the administration of the Vst-Plugins to the cores and threats og my 12-core mac is completely done by Vienna Ensemble or MIR Pro and not by the sequencer? (because some people say that Logic Pro isnĀ“t that good at that point)

    Thanks a lot for your reply. (VSL-support is the best out there)

  • There are still a few hicups with VE pro 5 and MIR PRO

    the best will be to do a benchmark when all problems are solved 

    today with my test piece that has a template of 97 VI using IAC with Logic and VE PRO MIR PRO I get 30 % cpu load in Logic and up to 1200 % with VE PRO (for PC user, with my computer I can go to 2400 % 12 cpu + 12 threads)

  • Hello,
    I have been used Logic few years. It's very intuitive and easy of use for start. But if you go deeper, there is quite a lot bugs and restrictions. I don't like the multi-timbral working in the Logic, which is necessary, if you want to use VE Pro and MIR. There is no VST Expression (which is in Cubase) alternative in the Logic. It's very lengthy to switch articulation in the Logic. I made my own Environment (around 1000 transformers). It works quite good, but if I want to evolve it, I hit to the Logic's bug. So, it's not so intuitive, as could be.
    My way to the CUbase was very thorny (I don't like the graphics of the Cubase, I have to adjust it a lot), but now, I'm very satisfied with combination Cubase, VE Pro, MIR Pro, and VSL sound libraries. It just works nice!
    Best,
    Martin

    Hello,

    Hello

    I use program change and bank changes to change  articulation and I use VSL Level  II  preset

    How could you use 1000 transformers ?

    I use 20 transformers for 16 instruments

    The trick is to use the banks of the multi and made your custom bank changes i.e Bank 1 will send C0, bank 2... C#0

    Then if you send program 1 it will send C1, program 2 it will send C#1.........

    This is symplifying a lot the environnement

    Best

  • Hi,

    just want to tell that I switched from Logic 9 to Cubase 6 when I got MIR Pro. I couldn't stand the multi-timbral limitations and all the other complications with the event plugin tricks, so that was reason enough for me to switch. I have not really noticed any performance differences between the two hosts with mir, but in Logic it was too much work and complications to even setup a 30 instrument orchestra with mirā€¦ I could say I'm satisfied about my decision to switch.

    Hello 

    Do you use MIR PRO in stereo or in 5.1 or 7.1 ?

    Best

    you should try 7.1 and tell me how it is working

  •  Hi Martinz,

    As a long time Logic user - I have just ordered Cubase 6. Please can you tell me whether you had any problems migrating your existing Logic music to Cubase and how this is done? Also, are there existing Cubase templates available for VEP Pro and MIR that I could use to save set up time?

    Best regards, Roy


  • I wonder if there are more tutorials for using Cubase or Logic with MIR Pro than the manuals of VSL. But ok, maybe I should better go through the older MIR-tutorials first.

    if you need a template using Event input and IAC send me an Email [:D]
