Cubase is a program that transforms your computer into a complete recording studio. It creates every button, knob, switch, and fader found in a hardware-based studio, including a few components that don't exist in that realm. Cubase 7 provides virtually unlimited tracks for musicians, producers, and music enthusiasts alike, limited only by the power of the host computer. But with all that power and all of the options that it provides, the processes of composing, recording, editing, mixing, and mastering can be challenging.
Power Tools for Cubase 7 was written with the new user in mind. First, you'll learn the process of installation and proper studio configuration. Next, you'll learn the foundations of rudimentary Cubase operations; how to avoid common mistakes; how to properly record and edit MIDI, instrument, and audio tracks; and how to use techniques that produce smoothly polished results. Finally, you'll learn how to add mastering treatments for a punchy, shiny, and loud mix that will compete with the pros. In the end, you might know the project was mixed and mastered in your home, but no one else has to.
The included DVD-ROM contains valuable video content that adds insight and power to the text and illustrations.
