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.
In this video, we are going to get familiar with the Cubase layout so we can find the tools and information we need for navigating and large scale editing. Let's move these so we can get a better view. The project window is divided vertically into tracks and the timeline on the horizontal axis from left to right. From the top, we see a toolbar here. As a general rule, if you hover your cursor over a button, Cubase will display the name or function of these buttons. Feel free to explore. But for now, we will concentrate on a select few on the toolbar. The ruler is down here. From left to right, we see the inspector, this is a detail view of what you'll see in the track list.
Here you have different functions such as Mute and Solo and views such as Inserts to add effects, Equalizers and a view of the Fader. The track list over here to the right shows you MIDI and audio tracks, also with Mute and Solo. Next to this is the event display that shows you audio and MIDI regions. Down at the bottom, we have the transport panel. You'll see locators, time display, transport, and the master sync with click and metronome settings. MIDI activity over here, and audio activity over here. As you can see, the project window is made up of different sections. Each of these allows you a wide variety of flexibility when customizing your projects.
