Get up and running with the cutting-edge DAW Cubase 7 in this quick one-hour class. Author Pieter Schlosser shows how to use Cubase 7 to create your music, starting with the very first steps: setting up audio and VST connections, utilizing templates, and customizing your Cubase workspace. Then learn how to import audio, set your tempo, and create a click track and markers. The next chapter shows you how to record and edit audio tracks, including how to overdub and loop, as well as apply and edit fades and crossfades. Then, Pieter moves into MIDI recording and editing, covering how to choose sounds, edit performances in the Piano Roll view, and use MIDI controller lanes to enhance the performance. He wraps up the course with a chapter on adding effects, creating aux sends, automating your mix, and exporting the final track.
We are now almost ready to record audio, and lay down our ideas into Cubase. Before we do let's make sure we take the proper steps to route our signal from our microphone or instrument through our audio interface into Cubase. At this point you should have selected your audio interface as the source Cubase will use for both imputing and outputting audio. We will now make sure we have selected and activated the proper inputs. Lets open up VST connections. Go to Devices, VST Connections, lets go over to the Inputs tab. You'll very likely see a Stereo or Mono input, depending on your interface. If not, create a buzz by clicking on Add Buzz over here, either Stereo or Mono. Lets keep it to Mono in our case.
Since we're recording a guitar. Check that under Audio Device, you see the name of your interface. Check that under Device Port, the correct input is selected. In our case, Duet USB one. If you like you can name this input by double clicking on it. We've already named it guitar in our case. We're going to leave it this way. Hit Return when you're done. If you have more inputs that you would like to use add them now and name them as described before. Now that you have insured you have the proper inputs, you are ready to create some audio tracks and record.
