Cubase 4 phase invert

    Hi, I have Cubase 4 Studio.

    I'm not really sure why this version is called studio because it does not have a built in phase inverter.
    My friend assured that studio version had everything I needed but he was wrong and I switched the pick-ups to kill zone mode and he is no more.

    Anyhow, I use SSL 4000 Channel plug-in alot, it has a phase inverter so i'm just wondering if that the same thing as using a Cubase built in phase inverter.

    I use Cubase LE 4. On each wave file in the edit area, I can right click > process > Invert Phase, and it will re-render it quickly like that. Works every time.

    Keep in mind that you can select a whole bunch of waves at once and do it all in one command.

    I use it all the time when I record a lead vocal through a tube preamp and a ss preamp. The tube preamp flips phase so I must flip it back.

    Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the advice Mr. Todd, the problem with that method is that you aren't able to hear how it sound until you record :)

    But not to worry because I tested it out myself.

    I know that if you take the exactly same signal, double it, then invert phase on one of them, they should cancel each other out.
    I tested it using the SSL 4000 phase invert and it worked, so i answered my own question :D

    I'm missing something here...you can flip phase back and forth all day after it is recorded. What am I missing here?
