    How to assign channels to synth in Cubase?

    Hello and happy new year. I'm still kind of a newbie when it comes to the technical parts of Cubase and composing in general. Up till now I've loaded one instance of e.g. an East West library and then adding more and more MIDI tracks as I progress, assigning different channels to each MIDI...

    Good books to develop reading skills and technique

    Thank you for elaborating on the subject, that's also the general message I've got from reading/watching various sources. What I'm lacking, though, is practice material or a way to practice to help me get started seeing these patterns - if you know any good practice material, I would appreciate...

    Good books to develop reading skills and technique

    I don't remember how I found it, just by a Google search I think. Pros: it generates random new pieces for you to practice. You can hear the tones being played, so you can play along and will know when you hit the wrong key (as opposed to just playing from a book). It builds your skills up...

    Good books to develop reading skills and technique

    Hello again everyone. I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions to practice material for developing technique and reading skills, or just general good advice as to what kind of exercises I should practice? I'm especially interested in developing speed in my sight reading. As far as I've...

    How to count this 4 beat measure?

    Yes of course, it depends on the time signature. Ok, anyway thanks for all the help once again!

    How to count this 4 beat measure?

    I can see why it's easier just counting 1 &, 2 &, 3 &, 4 &... It was mostly to get into the habit of counting for 16th notes, at least until I'm confident enough to be able to switch between the two ways of counting. Heh... it's a computer-generated, random tune. It's really just for...

    How to count this 4 beat measure?

    Thank you, I think I understand now! I was almost there but couldn't really get it to fit with the 4 beats, but it adds up now. I wasn't aware that the quarter note could start on the "&" part, I guess that's what confused me.

    How to count this 4 beat measure?

    Hi again, hope you're all doing well. Was wondering if anyone could tell me how I should count this measure (the treble clef part)? There are 16th notes in the rest of the piece, so I'm counting '1-e-&-a, 2-e-&-a, 3-e-&-a, 4-e-&-a', but I'm confused as to where the notes in the first two beats...

    Sight Reading Book

    I can also recommend sightreadingfactory.com as a place for practice. Michael New is definitely the best on Youtube, however he only has three videos so far about sight reading as far as I remember, the rest is more about music theory, but these are great (and essential) as well.

    Assigning fader via pitch wheel in Cubase/Kontakt

    Oh I see, nevermind, I finally found out what those folders with the VST's names on were for :D Hmm, I wonder if I can't use the midi fader in the side menu to control this... the knob in kontakt is kinda hard to handle with a mouse.
