    Why no music production videos using Cubase?
    I know there are videos of how to use Cubase but all the music production tutorials are for logic or pro tools or Ableton.Sure, some of what they offer can be applied to most daws in general but it's definitely not the same as following along a well known producer who's using the same host as I am explaining the same the use of how he uses features specific to the same software I use. Thanks

    Hi dblock, If there are any areas of production you wish to be covered why not drop a note here as a request to be covered in the Cubase monthly TNT series? :) R

    Re: Why no music production videos...
    Hi R, What I mean is for example "producing rock" "producing hip hop" "producing electronica"...using Cubase with Cubase files you can interract with (well, maybe the interracting is going a bit far for this platform but you get the idea. I have quite a few MacVideos which I like but what frustrates me is that all the actual music production ones they have are for Logic, protools and ableton live users.Sure,much can be adapted to whatever software your using however,many tips and tricks are specific to the particular program being used in the tutorial and I don't see much in the way of using Cubase to explain the ins and outs of music production. I believe that someone with a different program gets some but not nearly all of the same benefit as someone able to follow along using the same program used in the tutorial. Seems Cubase users are left in the dust so to speak as far as music production videos goes unless they just want to learn about Cubase operation itself (by the way, I have all the Cubase Macvideos, spectrasonics and others which are ALL excellent and that's why I think tutorials that take you through a song from recording to mixing type production videos for Cubase users would be excellent as well. I also have the Cubase mastering video so that's why I didn't include mastering (great job guys!) Now lets get out there and give Cubase music production people some respect (just kidding). Thanks

    Nice point Dblock. At first I thought your were writing about and against the great efforts and job Matthew Hepworth is doing. Looking deeper you have a point and it would be nice if there were tutorials added for your stated reason. I guess it is assumed most people doing this stuff have an idea of how to put a song together, but it shouldn't be assumed. Ideas would be helpful. Well, you did mention the others i.e., Pro Tools, Ableton and other DAWS show examples I too as you would think the examples are relative. Thanks.

    Yes, definitely agree! Let us know more about what you want to see in future tutorials here or in the "Suggested Training" sub-forum... Many of the Mixing and production based tutorials on Logic, Pro Tools and Ableton Live are really worth watching as their content can be applied to any DAW. Some of these trainers are extremely experienced (award winning even) producers who tend to use Logic/Pro Tools... so these particular guys chose to shoot their tutorials on those specific platforms... but we're always looking to improve and add to our content for all DAWs.

    I'm glad you got it the way it was intended. Nothing against the guys that do these production tutorials who, imo, are some of the tutorial guys I've seen out there and it makes perfect sense for them to be experts in the software they use. We Cubase users would just like the same qualified expert who happens to write and produce songs on Cubase. And think about how many song writing and producing books are selling out there. There'll always be a market for someone just starting out and a beginner will always seek new and interesting ways to "begin" his quest to become what we assume he already is when you think about it no matter what the field is. Mac Pro is apparently aware of that since they have a "fundamentals" video tutorial selection. Songwriting and producing is really no different.

    I do have Pop Music Production (Pro-Tools), Mix Urban Pop,Hard Rock with Logic and am considering the Olav tutorials as well. All very good. I know, send all these guys your great Cubase tutorials to learn and have them come back in a week and do a production tutorial using Cubase. lol!

    Yes, definitely... we're always open to suggestions!! We like suggestions :) btw, the Olav Basoski Mixing Electronica: [url]http://www.macprovideo.com/tutorial/logic9404[/url] is one of my very very favourite tutorials ever! Not sure that trying to convert famous and busy producers from PT/Logic to Cubase is an easy task though ;-) Having said that, creating good tutorials can take time... keep an eye out over the next few weeks and months as we've got some interesting titles in the works... can't say anything more and can't promise they are necessarily Cubase specific... but watch this space :) R
