In this in-depth tutorial series, Cubase guru Dave Askew reveals his most complete advanced lessons ever! Learn how to master some of the more complex, powerful, and creative features Cubase Pro 8 has to offer!

Dave begins with some tips on software setup to enhance workflow. After covering workflow concepts, he goes into discussing the VST Control Room, and its amazingly flexible routing possibilities, as well as how to use it for Monitor Management.

The next videos show you how to get creative with Dynamics and Expression, with one video on Dynamics Mapping and two on VST Expression Maps, which let you get the most out of Cubase’s MIDI Articulation features. Dave follows that up with a video on Note Expression, rounding out this section of tutorial videos.

Dave now spends a video demonstrating how to Create a Drum Map from scratch, and how to use the Advanced Score Editor features. He then explores advanced Quantization and Tempo Functions. Dave now explores one of Cubase’s least understood editors, the Logical Editor. See how you can create arrangements on the fly with the Arranger Track.

Lastly, Dave finishes up the series with video tutorials on Project Management, explaining how to insert new versions of tracks with Track Versions, then using Pool Libraries to create Sample Collections, and finally a deep dive into File Management.

Good (and rare) information

This is a good course and helps as a fast introduction to some of Cubase 8's hidden yet potentially powerful features. The only issue which I found may not work great for some viewers, is, the extremely fast pace chosen to go through complex subjects. Too fast. Instead of two hours, this could last 4 and have a much more lasting effect on the viewer who doesn't seek to get impressed, but rather, learn. Excellent presentation and choice of material to be covered, but, for me, the speed of discussion should be adjusted by at least -50%. Otherwise, thank you for introducing me to so many hidden features of a program I thought I knew a lot about already. Amazing job.

Superb - so many features I didn't know existed

I have watched through and blown away at the clear presentation, albeit a bit fast but it is a video so you can go back and watch particular details. Excellent and just so valuable to know what features are available and which ones would be of use.

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.
