Cubase wiz Paul Ortiz brings you the beginner’s guide to using Cubase to create your first song! Paul starts with a blank Cubase session and walks you through the entire process, with real-world examples and helpful tips.
Paul starts by welcoming you and then dives right in, showing basic program functionalities, including setting the project tempo, adding virtual instrument tracks, and more.
Next, you’ll get to work on the backbone of the song, the drums and bass. See how to develop the song’s verse, including parameter automation, adding additional synth layers and introducing some acoustic drum elements.
Paul now demonstrates how to build the chorus section, including how to set up an audio track for recording live guitar, as well as basic approaches to double tracking and grouping in Cubase and more.
Finally, Paul shows how to use the existing sections to create a quick arrangement in preparation for a mix, and also explores Cubase’s Musical Mode and Audio Pool to get the audio files in the song to conform to tempo, allowing the tempo to be sped up, creating a whole new vibe!
See the individual tutorial descriptions below for more info. If you’re new to Cubase and are ready to see how to make your first masterpiece, this is the video series to watch. Get “First Song with Cubase” today.
