Hi, I am new here with an M3 and Cubase 5. i have experience with very early version of Cubase on the Atari St decades ago. A lot has changed since then… Would be great if somebody could help me on the following questions:
- what is the best workflow to record midi songs on the m3… A very straightforward step by step description would be highly appreciated (e.g.settings M3 and Cubase)
- do i set the m3 in sequencer mode or combi? (related to question 1). Do i need to set the programs in sequencer mode on the m3 including effect settings and do I therefore have to save my songfile without keyboard information on the pc and individually sequencer settings on the m3 or can I save EVERYTHING in a file on the pc, i.e. Opening the file and automatically setting all parameters also on the m3? seems complicated to save everything twice…or is this the role of the m3 plug in editor. If not, what is the role of this editor? Simply speaking this is the same question as 1), I am looking for the , most convenoent and most efficient workflow to do midi recording…
- does anybody out there us hardware and software/vst sounds? If so, is the quality of software sounds better, the same, worse than hardware? Which vst sounds are recommendable and important: what would be the setup to use hard- and software sounds. Currently my monitor speakers are directly connected to my M3. Would I need a mixer or is there another solution?
- how do I record a finished midi song to mp3/cd?
Thanks so much for your help!!!
