following quite a lot of threads here in the forum made me think: There a many postings with unclear questions and a lot of clarification is needed in order to start to help. Asides from general problems of (many?) posters to express themselves clearly (which cannot be handled properly in a Software Forum but is more a question of early education…) many of these postings could be more productive (in terms of chances to help) if people chose a reasonable approach to learning the software.
I highly recommend to (cross)read the manual. Please dont get me wrong. I am aware that despite having read the manual one sometimes misses points that are clearly documented there. And I am also aware that the manual is not perfect. BUT: What we all need in order to communicate about the program, our problems with it, etc. is A COMMON LANGUAGE - a basic understanding of the terms and concepts the software uses. And a general idea of the context. All this can be achieved by having an “inner overview” of the manual.
There are of course great videos (for those who prefer videos over written text) - but this does not replace the manual, especially when it comes to basic concepts and the terms that are used.
So my piece of advice is: Learn the “Cubase” language. Take time to get an overview of concepts and the language (which is ALWAYS specific to a certain product) it uses.
What you will get is a higher probability to solve some problems on your own PLUS you will increase your ability to express your problems, issues, questions in the forum.
All the best, Ernst
