12 Videos: Cubase Quick Tips

Post by tenkas »

Hi!

I am starting a new youtube channel to help Cubase grow as a community.

I will start by posting tips and tricks that I use daily in Cubase.

Here is the playlist of 12 tips:
https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=P ... H0YsuDEv4r

Please let me know if these are useful and if you would like some more.

I will also be doing some videos on producing, mixing, composing, arranging, mastering, hardware and software review in the future.

I am also considering doing live shows where I take your songs, analyse them, give feedback, etc.

Feel free to share!

This is great. I can't tell you how refreshing the video lengths are. No filler, no BS, just straight to the point. Well done.

Bravo! Subscribed!

I'll use the q-link shortcut immediately. Never knew about the right-click shortcuts (and am having some trouble finding out where they're documented).

Thanks!

Thanks!

Some of these functions and "shortcuts" are really hidden and sometimes I discover them by mistake. After close to 15 years of Cubase, I am still learning!!!

Keep it up!

The best thing I like from what I see is what BuckleBean mentioned above...no obnoxious intro sound/video clip introductions...no long-winded babble...just get down and dirty fast.

The videos are very helpful, thank you, tenkas. I do have a question about the video showing the multi color schemes? How did you create this multi pallet color scheme? Is this a Cubase 10.5 feature or is it in C10, as well?

One that seems to appear here fairly often is converting a stereo track to mono. I think you already did mono to stereo. There are different stereo to mono methods, so maybe break them down?

Midi editing, especially in the key editor has quite a few key modifiers (click and hold+sft, or hold ctr to temporarily defeat snap, double click and drag to create multiple notes etc) that are very useful for enhancing workflow. (start at 2:00 for the key editor) Maybe these could be broken down a bit more like drums & Key edit.

On behalf of Cubase users everywhere, I would like to express my sincere gratitude to you for this fantastic collection -- I can appreciate the amount of work you have put into this, and even though I've been using Cubase for a long time, I still learned a lot that will enhance my workflow. With each new update, there are so many features that I don't get time to try out, and it's often the little things that I miss out on completely, that can save so much time.

So well done, and thank you! 8-)

I've watched countless Cubase videos, and picked up more in 2-4 min videos, than some 20+ min videos.
I also found it refreshing to not see the same old topics covered. Keep it up!

Here is a more advance tip on using workspaces and multiple mixers. I got the idea years ago from a German youtube video but I do not speak German and can't find the video (if you ever find it, I will credit the man who showed me this technic).

Nice! Great job; nice and short, and useful videos. Learned some things already. Subscribed. Some of the things might only be available in Pro/Artist (i.e. constrain delay compensation) so whenever you can it might be worth mentioning that for us folks not able yet to afford the higher-level products.

Another tip that it might be worth mentioning (something I just learned) was how to set MIDI recording mode to Merge instead of the default mode, which creates new overlapping "parts" that you can't easily merge by a right-click function.

Something I haven't found out yet how to do, is to rename MIDI parts that inherited the name of the track. Maybe I change the instrument and thus change the track name, but the MIDI parts still show the name of the old track name. (EDIT: Just found out how to do this in another tutorial video. When renaming the track Shift+Return renames the MIDI parts as well.)

I started my channel about a month ago and now with 300 subscribers, I want to know what you guys would like to see.
My first series was "Cubase Quick Tips"

I want to create more video series and I would like to know what you would like to see.

One of my idea was to take one song every week/day (depends of the workload involved) and do a full "Help my track" kind of video. I would help with the composition, arrangement, cubase, mixing, mastering, etc.

Please let me know if there is a certain Youtube format you would like, I am here to listen!

As a Cubase user since SX3 its a little embarrassing that I didn't know so many of these tips. Regardless, thankyou very much for doing this. Your tips are super helpful to me.

As for what I would like to see... I make use of expression maps when using orchestral instruments. Sometimes I have to create my own expression maps and that is tedious work. Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks
