Steinberg Cubase 6

Video Description

Steinberg's Cubase 6 is the latest update to the extremely popular professional digital audio workstation music software. In this course, author Mark Struthers will demonstrate how to make initial input and output connections to the program from the soundcard before examining routing in more detail. Additionally, insert and group effects are explored to help show how to enhance recorded audio tracks. Mark will walk you through the manyfeatured project window before showing you how to create and save your own project. Within the Cubase workflow, important terms such as clips, events, and parts are explained along with the distinction between lanes and tracks. Mark also covers insert and send effects, quantization, time stretch, and the Media Bay. Cubase comes equipped with VST instruments and, in particular, Groove Agent One and Halion Sonic SE are explored before working through the concepts behind a final mix and export to a finished audio track.
