Can I say at the outset, that I am a retired Haematologist, not an IT Whizz or Sound Engineer. I bought a Zoom R16…and Cubase came with it, to record my bands songs…for fun. I upgraded from Cubase LE 8 to Cubase Elements 8. Right, so that’s the preliminaries out the way.
I’ve been recording projects both via my Zoom, and Zoom as I/O into Cubase. Sort of getting the hang of it.
My problem comes when I add the VST pre-set drum tracks to my projects. Whilst in Steinberg “kit”, everything plays well. It’s when I go to export my project to convert to mp3 or CD, that I have my issues. Following the turorial instructions, all my project comes across into the other formats…except the drums.
I have to say…being old (60) and also a “blood” man, a lot of the replies to a lot of forum topics seem to be in very technical terminology. “You do x,y,z…easy”…which maybe it is if it’s your “thang”, but I could do the same with my line of work…and nobody would have a clue how to do it.
So, I suppose what I am asking is…How do I…in very simplistic terms (spoonfed), manage to get these drums exported with the rest of my project.
Many thanks, be gentle lol.
