Hi guys. I’m creating an ear training tutorial where users are asked to recognize a chord progression, such as C G | Am F.
I would like to use some audio base, with several instruments (not just a piano chord progression), in order to have the exercise richer and more interesting.
I do not have any demands at all for the bases to use, I would explore different tempos, genre, instruments, etc…, with no problem.
What is the best way, if any, to create as quickly as possible, many of these bases in Cubase? Or should I use some third-party plugin/service to do that? I found many websites that offer free/paid loops, but you don’t get to choose the chord progression.
On the contrary, inside Cubase, I can insert loops for individual sounds but they do not mix well together if used in conjunction with other instruments. So in this case, I always end up doing the base by myself from scratch.
The new Cu(base) chord to midi decipher feature is also a great way to start if you have a guitar handy. I can (base) this on the fact that I’ve tried it and it seems to work great. It (bas)ically cuts chords track time in half. It also translates well when laying down a (bass) line or any other VSTs arraignments. I could see it actually becoming my first (base) when I start a project. Whether or not it’s the first thing I do I will definitely be using this on a regular (bas)is.
