Not expecting any replies, if not some. Just thought I'd post this here just incase anyone has this music program.

Anyone have it?

It's a highly advanced music program and used by professionals, (not that I am one :D)

I just made this to have discussions on it.

Yay!! Someone else who uses Cubase. It's my favourite music programme to use. I've tried all the professional software packages like Protools and Logic but Cubase has always been my favourite. People usually look at me weird when I say that. :p

I've used it in the past, but I hated it. =/

Yep. I use Cubase 4. Haven't upgraded to 5 yet.

I've been using Cubase since v2 on my Atari ST so it's in my blood now. I love it.

It's a sequencer. So it enables you to produce songs. You create various tracks (bass, drums, etc) and then you can record your playing, arrange notes, arrange samples. It allows you to use lots of different 'plug-ins' together, so you can source your sounds from many different bits of software.

:eek: Wow, that sounds like fun. Kind of what they use to make 'remixes' of songs?

I "acquired" and tried fiddling about with (too complicated for me :p ).

I found FL Studio to be very easy to master( A whole bunch of tutorials on YouTube), I'd definiteli reccomend it for it's ease of use.

Nope, it's all from scratch. So you have a (piano) keyboard. Hit record in Cubase, play some notes. And then you can quantize the notes (put them in time :D ) and edit them. And you build up a song in this manner, playing along with your previous recordings. Selecting and fine tuning the sounds you use (via the instruments in Cubase). You can also EQ your tracks so they fit together and stuff. It's a good hobby :)

You can play it with your normal keyboard as well so no extra equipment is required :D(Though it's a pain in the ass to hit all the correct keys on a pc keyboard). The larger songs hog up ram and CPU power like a *****

This is true. If you're using software synths (which are far cheaper than the hardware equivalent) then it does cane the processor and RAM. I've got a quad core 2.6 with 4 gig of RAM for my music and that struggles with more complex and weighty songs.

Woah, we have the same PC set up. :p

Yeah, I love using Cubase. I like using Reason with it as well.
My most recent project involved creating a soundtrack from scratch for a video I shot, got it all done in Cubase.

I used it before when I was trying my worth at Vocaloid. It was a very useful program but in the end I decided I didn't need it or Vocaloid. xD
