Cubase Hell

I had finally completed my 8 minute track for a college project which has taken the best part of a month, all midi and audio tracks were complete .. so in my documents area i found a new folder called 'audio' (not realizing these were my actual cubase audio tracks) i deleted it and emptied the trash can (i-mac). Now i went back into my song and ..nothing. All my audio files have now been permanantley deleted

I called mac and apparently there is a way to get them back but i'd have to send it to a proper repairs place, does anyone know how to do this or give any advice? Right now i feel like ****, completely gutted ..

Re: Cubase Hell

btw, i managed to save the track as a .csh file but it won't play on the mac, and photoshop comes up on the p.c?! As long as i have at least an mp3 of it it will have to do .. anyone know what this track i've saved it as will play on or what it is?

Epicus Furor - bro I'm no expert with Mac PC but i do know how to recover any lost files so give this a try

back up all the work & programs you did first from the date you deleted the file to now the present -on CD so you can reload it if anything get lost

ok- go in to your (START)

go into your (ALL PROGRAMS)-

go into your (ACCESORIES)-

go into your (SYSTEM TOOLS) -


Now if you know what day & time you deleted the file -you can enter the date & time a day before you deleted the file in the

(SYSTEM RESTORE point day & time)

this will recover the SYSTEM & files as they had been to that point in time, so any work or Programs you did after that point in time (may) nolonger be there- that is why you must have a backup CD with all you stuff on it,

Also you can reverse any SYSTEM RESTORE point back to the present day & time if things don' t work out (with no problems) just enter the Day & Time the same way

Bro- this infomation is for Windows XP PRO, so i hope it works on a Mac give it a try?

Re: Cubase Hell

you may try Norton Recovery. There used to be a feature on Norton programs to recover deleted files. I can't remember if it was a stand alone program or part of the Norton anti-virus. I once used it on my powermac and it worked.

Re: Cubase Hell

Stay away from norton stuff, it is nasty.
Use Data Rescue, it is much, much better.

Having said that, MacOS deletes filenames on emptying the recycle bin. So you're in for some truly serious searching and then you'd have to name everything correctly again to work with Cubase.

I was in a similar situation as you a couple of months ago. I found it was much faster to redo the whole song from scratch.

My sympathy bro...
