I am very new to the DAW scene. I messed around in fruity loops for a year, then decided to invest in Cubase. So far I have done some minor stuff like laying down some drum and synth tracks and messing with the included effects, but this summer my goal is to really get the wraparound on this program. I am hoping that once I understand what everything does, how to use those things, and how to do it quickly, I can get a really nice workflow going.
I am guessing that a good way to get started would be the manual. I know that some manuals suck though, and I am wondering if it would be worth the time investment to read this one.
Aside from the manual, are there any sources that go REALLY deep into the tools and functions of Cubase? I need to know everything, including the basics!
I have already had some lag problems where after a few measures the tracks get out of sync with eachother, but hopefully it subsides.
Thanks for any potential help!
Also on the summer list is learning more about synthesis and the basics of EQ and mastering
