I am in need of some pointing in the right direction. I have Cubase 4 and a computer that can run it but is no means specialized for audio.
Specs on my comp: 4 gigs RAM, 2.2 ghz triple core.
I have a midi keyboard and I am interested in having some fun making some sort of industrial ambient sounds/music, or dark ambient.
So far I can load some presets without THAT much trouble and record some keystrokes with 2-3 tracks.
I would be excited if I could get some advice from anyone here where to start. I have “Fastguide to Cubase 4” but not sure if this is what I need. In terms of musical awareness I don’t know that much. I am not sure what I need to compose some short stuff or what I need to know about it. There are several features that I am unaware of. I know of effects by sound but by no means no what those effects are called or anything. I have been browsing forums and articles however it seems like I am too inexperienced for those. Where should I start?
I am really excited for this and hope to be able to just humble myself with some sort of learning, creation and fun with some advice from you.
