Hi all - I don’t do many posts on this, but I have to toss in my opinion on the Control Room feature on Cubase. Like many, I had a way that I was routing everything to my monitors and people I was recording. I would route the tracks out to my main bus and route that bus to my monitors via an interface.
At first, I saw the Control Room feature and it just seemed like a complicated version of what I was doing. I was really wrong.
I finally took the time and sat down for a few days with youtube videos, the manual, and looked into the features that the control room provided for my production work. This really has helped my work and has created a much more fluid work flow for mixing, listening, using multiple monitors, sending special cue mixes to the session players, etc.
And I’m not posting this out of bragging, but just as a professional perspective. My work can be heard on the radio and I just got done working with a new artist that is more than likely to get signed with a major label out here in Nashville in the coming weeks. (now if we could only do something about this insipid humidity in the south! ha!)
I know there are still a great many who have not taken the time to learn about this feature. If you get a chance, just sit down with a cup of coffee and make it a point to get a handle on this. You will be happy you did!
As a former ProTools user, Cubase is just astounding. I would never use ProTools ever again.
