Hi- I’m using standard Cubase 10 that came with the Yamaha.
1- I’ve finally become comfortable with setting up midi tracks using patches from Yamaha. I started to play around trying to set up tracks using voices on Cubase - but couldn’t get the Yamaha to play them. How do I tell Cubase to use one of the built in sounds but have it played by the external keyboard?
2- it seems Cubase 10 pro offers ability to sample. I’d like to be able to sample sounds and then really tweak them- is it better for me to upgrade to pro or should I consider purchasing a separate sampling software (I see Steinberg offers a $300 app for this)? And- if I do that, how does that work? I run that app along w Cubase and Cubase can treat that as another instrument ? Ie I assign midi channel to whatever sample I want to use in the song? Am I limited to one sample per song of could I have a few samples each w dedicates channels all used simultaneously in on Cubase project?
Or- is it better to just get sampling hardware and midi it to the Yamaha?
I’m obviously clueless here so go easy…
A bit overwhelmed with the multitudes if YouTube videos etc. I also find the various user manuals to be rather thin without much helpful explanations/definitions etc- so this forum has proven to be invaluable!
