By PSW Staff • September 11, 2012 Mixing and Mastering with Cubase was written with the new user in mind by starting with the basics. Hal Leonard Books has published Mixing & Mastering with Cubase ($16.99) 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. Hal Leonard Books Comments Leave a Reply Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
