    I am now on XP and Cubase SX2, with Motu 2408 mkII soundcard. Two questions:

    1) I have to run Cubase on high buffers to prevent glitching in multitrack
    playback. I use SoundForge to edit, but get really bad glitching unless I
    use small buffer. I think this is a pecularity of the Motu, but does anyone
    know a solution? (picking a medium buffer makes both a problem!)

    2) Are Steingberg planning to add an external wave editor facility to SX? If
    not, does anyone know a good technique for doing this manually (without
    having to quit Cubase in order to manipulate files)?

  2. You don't need an external editor anymore.... You do it all in Cubase.....
    cut, paste, eq, normalize.... whatever you want!
    Was there something you needed to do outside of Cubase?

  3. You've got it already, but not automatically. Any wav file used by
    Cubase can be opened in an external editor.

    But, if you investigate Cubase's built-in wave editor, you may find
    little need to use an external one. And then you benefit from
    Cubase's Undo path, which can be very useful.

    I'll have a play with the new SX editor, and maybe I'll change my mind. It'
    just that I've become very fond of SoundForge and its ways of working. The
    issue with the .wav system is that if you alter a file in SoundForge, you
    then have to tell Cubase where it is. Also, you cannot edit a file in
    SoundForge if you have it open in Cubase. I liked the integration of the
    process in VST5.

    Anyone got any suggestions with the buffer thing?

  5. Yeah. We keep asking Steinberg to put the option back. "Yes, I know
    it breaks the Undo path, but let me use an external editor anyway!"

    You should be able to open a wav in SoundForge as long as the Play
    Position in Cubase is outside the range of that wav.
