114 pages of Cubase info (slanted towards the new Cubase 4 and Studio 4) from the Electronic Musician and Thompson Course Technology stable of writers.
Packed full of plain-English tutorials with clear and concise diagrams, Mastering Cubase 4 throws open the doors on the new Cubase platform, examining Control Room, SoundFrame, using Virtual Instruments, recording and editing MIDI and audio, and much more.
Supporting the core Cubase 4 tutorials are a host of features examining features that apply to the entire Cubase platform: using ReWire, Logical Edit, the filters, exploring the whole world of VSTs and more.
Since this is a magazine, not a book, senior editor Mike Levine has also interviewed some high profile Cubase users including Nashville songwriter Vince Melamed, Grammy-winning producer Ted Perlman, and DJ and remixer extraordinaire Joe Bermudez.
Finally, comes as bonus DVD that’s jam-packed with tutorial videos, demos of ultra cool software, a free MIDI Loop library from KEYFAX NewMedia, and a Cubase Project featured in one of the videos so you can see how tracks were recorded and mixed on your own system.
