You will not learn any faster using the ultimate package. If anything, you may find it slower, as there are more options. As an artist, most of those options will never be necessary for you. Even some studios I work with never go near some options. Start with the cheaper version - it's what I use at home, as does the rest of my band. We only use the full ...

I think this is exactly what you're looking for: https://www.bandlab.com/ I've never used it myself, but from what I gather it's sort of like Google Docs, only it's a DAW. (Google DAW?)

Steinberg have two 'remote' working solutions, VST Connect & the new VST Transit I haven't used either in my real workflow, but was involved in early betas of Connect, which at the time looked very promising.

If your characterization of "white noise" is somewhat accurate, you are out of luck. You can get various bits of noise from unstable power supply and inverters for step-up DC/DC converters and ground loops. But those will be whining or humming. Broadband noise, in contrast, is almost sure to originate from the analog circuitry of your microphone, and it ...

Screenshots are from Nuendo 4, the coeval of Cubase 5. So it should be similar. In the "VST Connections" menu add two stereo busses for each stereo-out of your USB sound card. I called them "Main" and "Headphones". On channel settings pick "Main" for Symphony and Guitar channel outs. If your click is the default Cubase click, in the "VST Connections" ...

No. Unfortunately Asio4All in cubase does not support using more than one device . Whichever device is switched on first gets control of the driver. ASIO officially does not support more device per driver although there are workarounds for other DAWS. The only exception is FL Studio.

As a beginner you'll have enough to learn with only the Artist version. You can cross-grade at any time you feel you're out-growing it.

Change your track settings from tempo based to time based. Then change the tempo of your project to fall with your recording. It is the little icon with the clock (when your track is time based) or a note (when it is tempo based). Then you can revert your track back to being tempo based.

I figured it out! While using Groove Agent SE, you can just drag the audio parts or slices you want onto the pad you want them on; then you can just "Create Drum Map From Instrument" and then edit the drum part in the drum editor thing like normal.

I just fixed the problem. It was from the PC itself. A audio enhancer was installed on my sound card, I just had to deactivate it. If you encounter the same problem, check the EQ of your sound card, and if you have an ASUS, turn off "Waves MAXXAudio" Thanks everyone for helping.

I think you are hearing is a vocoder. See if Cubase has a vocoder plug in. That should do the trick. Your cover sounds great by the way.

The fact this happens in various different software packages shows you it isn't caused by them, so no, don't bother buying a new DAW package. I'd lay odds on it being because you have a USB mic plugged directly into a laptop - this is rarely a good idea if you want even semi-decent sound quality. So get yourself an audio interface. If you do want to ...

Sadly I don't get your question exactly... However, the reason why anyone would say you should record at -6dB's is just because you don't want any clipping of your audio signal. I do a lot of orchestral music with virtual instruments for example. The software that's used is named Kontakt 5. In the settings I can choose if the instruments should be loaded by ...

Create a MIDI track instead of an instrument track to hold the MIDI notes. Create multiple instrument tracks for all the instruments. Use the “Sends” section on the MIDI track to send the one set of MIDI data to multiple instruments. One advantage of this method is you retain independent mixing of the different instruments. Another way to deal with this is ...

In most instrument VST's like Kontakt, you can choose the input/output of the VST. If you just open multiple instruments and route them to the same midi channel, every change you'll do in this midi channel will then affect all VST's

The thing about Cubase is it has a 1,300 page manual. The other thing is that, until you've read that manual at least 3 times, you're going to struggle. All documentation is available via the Help Menu. Everything is key-commandable - literally everything. Every menu, every function, every user-made preset. If you need harmonic transposition, then ...

In order to transfer User Songs from the Thomann Dp-95 to the PC you need a software called "pootute". With this program you can also convert and transfer Standard Midifiles to the Dp-95. Since the software isn't supplied with the Dp-95 you will have to download it here: https://www.medeli.com.hk/downloads If the program doesn't start properly, saying ...

A MIDI cable is usable only for sending MIDI messages in real time. The manual does not mention any setting that would enable sending messages when playing a stored song. To be able to access the internal files of the device, connect it to the PC with a plain USB cable.

This is standard behaviour in music applications. You can't 'hotplug' a USB device. Have everything connected and powered up before starting the program. Don't be surprised if a USB device loses contact after the computer goes into a power-saving standby mode either. The solution to both these issues is simply 'Don't do that, then!'

Your guess is true. In the Good Old Times™, when USB did not yet exist, MIDI ports were fixed hardware devices that stayed there even if the cable was unplugged. So the Windows MIDI API has no easy way to report changes. You sequencer might re-read the device list when you open its configuration dialog to select another port. But if not, then the only time ...

Maybe the "white noise" is fan noise from your computer? If so, putting some distance between computer and microphone and letting the microphone face away from the computer (a cardioid microphone usually has a marked sensitive side, with the least sensitivity being just opposite) might help.

This behaviour (track renaming) apparently started in the Cubase 7.5 update. It was noted in the linked thread as being undesirable, however it seems that the issue was not resolved despite developers being notified. Perhaps it has been addressed in the latest version of Cubase (you don't say what edition you are using), but perhaps not!

It is not possible to control a arranger track cubase with MIDI command because the development of Cubase do not design this. But it is possible to launch point of arranger track with an Ipad and aplication Cubase Ic Pro which can launch different point of this arranger track on the fly. Also this change not impact to playing (order for change index of ...

It depends on the effect you are going for. If you literally want it to "cut out", just record the sustained note, set grid to 8th and 16th and cut on grid...select all...shorten regions to create gaps...add fades if desired. If you have all selected they will all shorten and fade. Saves you having to keep track of sidechains and triggers...saves processing ...

Sounds to me like rhythmic gating - so called because in the pre-computer production days it was often produced by using a separate hardware 'gate' with a side-chain input into which you'd pass a 'key' signal that would open the gate for a short time - http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/1996_articles/sep96/gatetechniques.html. Of course now you don't really ...

I believe what you're looking for is what's referred to as a "bus track" (though I've really only heard it called a "bus"). On the amp bus, you'll have everything (minus the click). On the headphones bus, you'll have the symphony and click (though you may need to render/bounce the click down to its own audio track. Offhand, I don't know how to route the ...

Asian Squirrel, you can either buy a MIDI to USB cable, which I would not recommend because of the latency. Latency is the delay between when you press a key and when it registers in your DAW as a midi note. If you're interested in the MIDI to USB cable, here's a link: http://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/Uno It's the cheapest option. You can also buy ...

Pressing the Alt Key and hovering the mouse over an event enables the scissor. Then it depends whether you have the "snap" button on and what type of snap (events, bars etc.) is activated. If you deactivate the snap mode, you should be able to freely cut it anywhere. Another option is to drag the event beginning via the bottom left corner to the right to ...


1

Perhaps I am missing something obvious, and I am talking from memory, but in order to cut accurately, you need to change the tempo counting bar measure type in the top bar. If I remember ok, you can specify different units like beats, seconds, edges or bars. There is an option that allows you to cut by fractions of second. Even that is not 100% millimetric, ...

I found this link which describes midi syncing in Cubase in general. I think because you have "Internal Timecode" selected, this may be causing the synchronization to be off. If the frame rate of your external device is different from that of Cubase, then the two will be out of sync. If they're always off by the same amount, this is probably your issue. (If ...
