CUBASE DUBSTEP TUTORIAL-My new projects don't open that way

I was watching a cubase tutorial

And as you see when the cubase project is opened there is a measure called “0”. My CUBASE opens up with the 1st measure as “1” What the heck is going on??? What version of CUBASE is this and how do I get the meaure called “0”

Very frustrating when you are trying to learn and you get things like this to deal with.

Set your left locator to bar 0 and save as a template called default. It will ask you if you want to replace the existing one. Say yes, re-open a default session from templates and voila.

The next snag is they tell you tell you to press “/” on your Num Pad.

I don’t have a “Num Pad” and when I press the “/” (underneath my ? on my keyboard) on my keyboard nothing happens.

So if you don’t have a “Num Pad” then what?

Thanks for such a quick response!!

Unfortunately, my left locater only goes down to “1” not “0” so I can’t set it there because it doesn’t exist. :frowning:

Ok, in this video when they enter the key editor and they start entering notes, the notes all have a label such as “D2/50” etc… When I draw notes it just show up as a red bar with no label. How can I fix that ?

I greatly appreciate all the help!!

You need to spend some time with the manual. What version of Cubase are you using? It’s usually a good idea to post your computer and software specs in a signature.

Yes, I need to spend more time with the manual. I was hoping for a quick answer. Also, I just went and tried to find the manual to download but can not find it anywhere. Can you send a link to the PDF please?

Also, is there a way to pause these videos? I feel like I am watching a magic trick at times they go so fast. Makes it very frustrating trying to match settings to the video

I have CUBASE 6.

Thanks for any and all help.

On the top of your screen-the help menu. Find documentation there. Also, post your computer specs.
Those are not videos, they’re GIFs, and I don’t know anything about managing them.

Ok one last post for tonight. I’ve officially hit frustration overload

Tonic does not load anymore…to add insult to injury the steinberg logo is right there on the tonic insert in the video.

I have a mac ver 10.7.1

MY processor is 2.66 GHz Intel Core 2 Duo if that helps anyone help me. …And I am using CUBASE 6

Thank you very much! I will update my profile as you suggest.

Thanks again for sharing your knowledge.

I am trying to learn and am greatful for CUBASE tutorils, the forum and people like you that share and give so much.

Good luck!

Oh, and I believe Tonic is discontinued

You sure about that? JHP used it in one of his last tutorials, so I doubt that.

Project Setup

Vertical zoom

Use mouse instead of shortcut keys

Thank you so much!!!

If it’s included with the C6 package, it’s missing in mine…and no, I wasn’t sure, which is why I said “I believe…” :slight_smile:
