First, I will be up front. I don’t know. I joined this forum in hopes i can get some help. I just bought cubase 6 so i can get the most out of my music and be able to use a wider range of VSTi’s as i can. I am still in the learning stage of using computers for music production, though i have been using finale family of software since 2005. Learning to use Finale has been fairly easy for me and i upgraded to Finale 2011 just recently as well. And to say now I like using notation in Finale and I don’t wish to use the notation in cubase, though I have checked it out and wasn’t as comfortable with it as i am with Finale. My first question will be is how do i get set up for loading midi data into cubase. I played with other Daw software as a trial and it was fairly simple for me. But with cubase I am stuck at the project dialog box with the templates, and i don’t want to use the templates ( at least not the ones i see). I just want to start a project that I can load my midi tracks into cubase, and add new tracks if i find i need more. Any one willing to help me get started with this? I know you’ll probably need more info, and i will try to give it but bear with me, I may not know what you are talking about. I have Windows7, 64bit, using Finale 2011, and Cubase 6 educational version.
