Spot on!

I was upgrading to Cubase from using the old version of SX3 and wanted to know the basics of the newer version. The level of detail and attention was perfect for me. I wanted a real 'dummie's guide' and this what the course achieved. I would recommend this course to anyone wanting to learn the basics of Cubase if they are not familiar with the program. Thanks guys for a great course!

Good introduction

This is a good introduction for people new to DAWs in general. It is really beginner-oriented and may leave someone already familiar with another DAW wishing for more. At a bit over 2 hours, this is the perfect length for the content.

Response from Customer Service:

Hi and thank you for your review!
I just wanted to point out to you (and anyone reading) that there is more...lot's more training for Cubase. A good place to go to follow this would be our First Song With Cubase where you can watch a mix happening in real time. Then there's the Know-How tutorials that focus on certain aspects of the program. We also have a tips and tricks.
Have a look at our Cubase category and you will find lessons for all levels!

1. When did you start dabbling in music?

I've been a musician since a very early age starting with playing the trumpet, guitar, bass, and piano. Not the drums though, my brother got those genes. I am an excellent finger drummer though to say the least!

2. What training have you had?

For formal training I took regular music lessons in grade school and high school which were fortified with training from private tutors. After school I joined the Army band and went through the Army School of Music as well. I'd like to say that most of what I've learned though came through experience and having hands-on opportunities.

3. When did you get into recording?

During my stay in the Army I was the live sound manager. I loved operating the mixing board but I loathed the 'live' environment. I truly enjoyed making things sound great but I didn't like the fact that there is so little room for error in the live setting. I had wished for more time to invest in being able to make something that sounds ok, turn into something phenomenal. I started by recording our Army band performances on a Yamaha AW1600 for fun, but really enjoyed that I could capture that moment then take my time to make it sound amazing without having to worry about the crowd booing. The rest is history!

4. People you have worked with/for?

A few musical highlights have been running live sound for the President of the US, and doing some on the side tech work for the band Dope. I also was able to work with Virus on one of his side projects. Over the years though my focus has been mainly in customer service and tech, so I've talked with thousands of industry professionals on a daily basis which have truly been too numerous to name individually.

5. Why are you so good at training people?

Growing up I always felt that I spent a lot of time training myself how to do things, but oddly enough I always thought I'd never make a great teacher even though I'm a geek through and through. In the early part of my career I turned down so many opportunities to teach music and engineering. I think part of that came with my own insecurity of not having the formal education that society tells us that we need to succeed. It took a lot of time, practice, and personal education to get me past that hump of feeling confident in trusting that what I taught myself was legit. I've finally reached a point where I feel like I have a lot to offer in terms of knowledge, but most of it has come through investing the time with having the hands on experience that not even formally educated people get sometimes. I truly believe the best way to learn something is to get your hands on it and immerse yourself in every little detail. Groove 3 is a great avenue to be able to share that knowledge.

I would strongly suggest either note taking or pausing and doing what he explains right away or both. Some concepts and features are just mentioned without further explanation, but watching this is not only a good way to learn but to explore what you have to study further. You can do this with the manual.
