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.
If you're a Premium Member, of Lynda.com, you have access to the exercise files used throughout this course. When I was making the course I tried to keep the projects simple and easy to follow. Any material that was played live, such as guitars or virtual instruments, are included. The loop files, however, you'll have to add from your own copy of Cubase, using the MediaBay. But the track settings I used will still be available. As you can see here, the exercise files are dived into chapters. And each chapter, is divided into separate folders corresponding to each video. One thing to note when opening the files is a warning of missing audio ports.
You can ignore this warning as they are specific to our set up. If you are a monthly member or annual member of lynda.com, you don't have access to the exercise files, but you can follow along, from scratch, with your own assets. Let's get started.
