Hal Leonard Power Tools for Cubase 7

Hal Leonard Books has announced it is shipping Power Tools for Cubase 7, a book by Matthew Loel T. Hepworth.

Cubase is a program that transforms your computer into a complete recording studio, providing every button, knob, switch, and fader found in a hardware-based studio, plus a few extra controls that don’t normally exist in that realm. Cubase 7 offers practically unlimited tracks for musicians, producers, and music enthusiasts alike, limited only by the power of the host computer. With so many options, the processes of composing, recording, editing, mixing, and mastering can be challenging, but Power Tools for Cubase 7 will help the reader easily and efficiently take advantage of all that creative power and flexibility.

Power Tools for Cubase 7 was written with the new user in mind. First, you’ll learn the process of installation and proper studio configuration. Then, you’ll learn the foundations of rudimentary Cubase operations; how to avoid common mistakes; how to properly record and edit MIDI instrument and audio tracks, and how to use techniques that produce smoothly polished and powerful results. Finally, you’ll learn how to add mastering treatments for a professional-sounding, competitive, punchy, shiny, and loud mix!

The included DVD-ROM contains valuable supporting material and actual Cubase session files that add to the in-depth learning experience provided by Power Tools for Cubase 7.

The book is available to purchase for $39.99 USD.

Hal Leonard publishes Mixing & Mastering with Cubase

Hal Leonard Mixing & Mastering with Cubase

Hal Leonard Books has published Mixing & Mastering with Cubase, a book by Matthew Loel T. Hepworth.

Cubase provides the user with many more tracks than bands from the ’60s, ’70s, and ’80s ever had at their disposal. Many iconic records were produced on 2-, 3-, and 4-track recorders, whereas the track count of Cubase 6 is limited only by the power of the host computer. After the tracks have been recorded, they must be mixed and mastered to sound polished and professional. But for the new user, the processes of editing, adding effects, EQ, mixing, and mastering can be challenging.

Mixing and Mastering with Cubase was written with the new user in mind. It starts by teaching you how to manipulate all the tracks and events in the Cubase Event Window. You’ll learn how to use volume and pan controls to create depth and audibility, add EQ to help every track sit in the mix, and add effects such as compression and reverb to produce smooth and polished results. Finally, you’ll learn how to add mastering treatments for a punchy, shiny, and loud mix that will compete with the pros. In the end, you might know the project was mixed and mastered in your home, but no one else has to.

Cubase has been used to create countless hit records. With what you learn in this book and a little luck and hard work, yours could certainly be next.

The book is available from Hal Leonard for $16.99 USD.

Hal Leonard publishes The Power in Cubase – Tracking Audio, MIDI, and Virtual Instruments

Hal Leonard Book The Power in Cubase

Hal Leonard Books has published The Power in Cubase by Matthew Loel T. Hepworth.

This comprehensive, thoughtful, and engaging guide is written to help the new user master the ins and outs of Cubase.

Consider this: Cubase is a program that will turn your computer into a complete recording studio. That is, Cubase can create virtually every button, knob, switch, and fader found in a “real” studio, including a few components that don’t exist in the hardware realm. Imagine the challenge of sitting at a large mixing desk and being expected to use all that technology to produce professional recordings. Well, by installing Cubase on your computer, that’s exactly what you’ve expected of yourself. Knowing how daunting that task sounds, it’s easy to get overwhelmed, if not disillusioned.

The Power in Cubase: Tracking Audio, MIDI, and Virtual Instruments will help you get started so that you can use Cubase to your full benefit. It is specifically written to allow a new user to quickly get started with Cubase while avoiding a myriad of pitfalls. First, you’ll learn the process of installation and proper studio configuration. Next, you’ll learn the foundations of rudimentary Cubase operations. You’ll also learn how to avoid common mistakes that can ruin a recording. Finally, you’ll learn how to properly record MIDI, instrument, and audio tracks. Whether they’re your own tracks or those of a client, you’ll achieve recordings in your own home or project studio that were recently considered unobtainable without a big studio. And you’ll discover Cubase is easier to learn than you may have expected.

The book is available for $16.99 USD.
