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.
