I would like to Thank MPV, and Matthew Hepworth, for making the Cubase 5 (101) tutorials, they are fantastic ! (even though I had to listen to his famous '4 Chord' masterpiece ;-) .
Matthew's Cubase 5 (101) tutorials are very well done, just the right pace, clear explanations, and repeating some of his concepts, and key commands as he goes through the various tutorials, in a systematic fashion, helped me a lot in learning, and remembering many of the workflow techniques, and key commands, with ease. I highly recommend the MPV Cubase 5 (101).
Regarding Cubase 5 (201) topics, well here are some of the Cubase 5 tutorial topics that would be very useful to include in the next more advanced Cubase 5 (201) MPV tutorial series :
