This is my first post, I have to say dope dnbforum is. It certainly has steered me in the right direction for getting my first dubplate put out. But however I am writing tonight about my problem with cubase sx. I have just transferred from reason (due to lack of vst capa) i have had training with cubase VST but i don't know cubase too well generally.
The problem is when I load a VST plugin like absynth or oxygen the latency is fecking slow, it must be about 500ms +. I cannot seem to find any option to adjust latency. I don't believe it is due to the spec of my computer as it is as follows:
Athlon XP 1600
500 mb Ram
Soundblaster 16 (proberly the prob)
40 gb hdd
Another question I have is about mastering. When mastering for vinyl do you master it in the came way as you would for CD. I know you cut the rumbling frequencies, and above 18khz but is there anything else I need to know? or can you steer me in a better direction?
