Description: Learn how to record, mix and master a complete song using Cubase 12
Welcome to the newest Cubase 12 Basic Tutorial! You will learn how to use Cubase 12 by recording an entire song! After years of producing music for artists and for myself, I’ve found that there’s no better way to teach someone how to use Cubase than by taking them through the process of creating an entire song. This course is the real deal! Think of it like a one-on-one personal internship with me in my studio as I show you how to set up Cubase, walk you through the most important controls, and then walk you through the process of recording and mixing each individual instrument all the way to the final mixing steps. mastering, and export your final track. The goal of the course is to teach you the most important and fundamental Cubase controls and features, and how to use them to complete full song creation by showing and guiding you through THE PROCESS ITSELF. By the end of this course, you should feel prepared and empowered to use Cubase to record your own songs and albums and release them to the general public. For the beginner or intermediate user, no stone is left unturned. This course covers everything from setting up your tracks to recording, compiling, editing, pitch correction, EQ, compression, reverb, and more. My goal here is to help take someone who is completely new to Cubase 12 and develop them to a relatively high level of competence so they can release their own music with confidence. I hope you enjoy this course, it’s my honor to show you how the whole process works. Have fun learning and writing! Blessings, Mark
