    Starting your first Cubase Project
    Rounik, I have learned a lot from Matthew. Unfortunately, I did not follow proper Cubase Project set up rules in the past prior to viewing his method. A few of my songs were recorded before I learned Matthew's technique. Is there a way I can save my previous songs using the "Proper set up technique?" Can you or anyone explain? Thanks in advance. In addition, my previous songs were recorded in 24 bit. Matthew suggest using 32 bit. Can I in some way change the bit rate of a song after it has been recorded?

    Hi Cubase 5, That's great news! Matthew is a great trainer :) I'm not an expert at Cubase... yet(!)... but if you have already recorded audio at 24bit resolution then converting them later down the line to 32-bit resolution won't positively affect their bit depth. Sure the files will be in 32-bit resolution, but they were still recorded at 24-bit. btw, 24-bit is still really great! :) Rounik

    Do U have any advice Re: the file management question? I failed to properly save files prior to viewing Matthew's tutorial. How can save a recorded song that was not saved properly as in the "Core 101 tutorial." Got any tips?

    I figured it out. Fortunately, I had a back on my iMac of every track (wave file) of the project I failed to set up properly. I deleted the song from the "Finder" and created and empty project as in Matthew's tutorial. I opened the project and moved the tracks from the desk top. Cubase accepted the tracks as if I just recorded them. Now, in the "Cubase Project" folder I see the song in the folder with the "Audio", "Image" and the wave files as if I recorded them fresh. I am glad I learned this lesson early. I only had three songs on my iMac. ;0). If there's another way or if this is wrong let me know please.

    Hey, Sounds like a great solution. Thanks for sharing. ...not sure why you needed to delete the files from the Finder first though? Maybe you could have moved it to a new folder to keep as a backup? :) Rounik

    Thanks Rounik. I had a "Back up". The files deleted were a cluster of attempts I made before "Properly Saving". Believe me, it became a cluster of a mess. This is why I was desperate for an answer. Was there another way to do it? Thanks to Matthew again for putting back on track. ;0)

    Lesson for every one. "Always keep "back ups" and DO NOT fail to maintain proper file management steps and procedure." As Matthew states in the tutorial VERY, VERY IMPORTANT.

    Yes, it's extremely good advice! I didn't cover backing up in my Advanced OSX tutorial, but Francesco Shiavon covers using Time Machine in his Snow leopard 101: [url]https://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/macos10101[/url] Personally, I still like to backup files selectively and manually and clone my entire system drive using Carbon Copy Cloner... :) Rounik

    Rounik, thanks again ;0) I listened and view a couple of Fracesco's tutorials. Excellent! I am guilty. Having transcending from a PC to an iMac I assumed a lot. This will be very helpful. ;0) All is worth the membership. (Happy customer). ;0)

    Glad to know you're enjoying your subscription! Moving from PC to Mac was one of my happier experiences!! One of beauties of the Mac operating system is there is a lot of cool and very useful functionality hidden underneath the surface. btw, there's a whole load of great tutorials on OSX, Mail, Address Book, Advanced OSX that are really worth checking out - in the future ;-) Best Rounik
