VERY helpful. watched right after the cubase 10 intro. recommended.

Great Overview

This is a good overview of the mixing functions within Cubase. The author does not spend a long time going over compression and the rationale behind using this and other effects, so if you are new to this subject it may be a good idea to learn the basics of eq, compression etc.

Response from customer service:

Hi and thank you for your review! Yes, this tutorial goes over the mechanics of mixing within the Cubase DAW. Mixing techniques using things like compression, reverb, delay and the like can be found in our more specific mixing tutorials. Compression Explained, for example, will go into the finer details of what it is and how to apply it to your own projects.
