    A very simple, compact analog-style recording and mixing signal chain and workflow?

    (I had a hard time choosing which sub forum to post this in, it's about gear and workflow, but I think mainly gear) TLDR I'm looking to put together my first dedicated (literally, tiny!) music production space. It will mostly be focused on composition, arrangement, recording and mixing...

    VEpro - Lots of instances vs Lots of Midi Channels

    Hello, I'm halfway through building my first grand template on Vienna Ensemble Pro7 and Cubase10, but some concerns are arising. I wonder what would be the ups and downs of having too many VEP instances vs too many Plugin Channels vs too many Midi channels coming from less Kontakt Instances...

    What's the deal with templates?

    I see a lot of talk about templates when it comes to sample mockup work. I've never really understood all the hoopla. I mean, put an instrument on a track, repeat process, add folders, blah blah, save when you've got all your standard instruments lined up and color-coded in a way that works best...

    Loading every articulation separate in Cubase. What's your workflow?

    Hey guys, I've always preferred the way of keyswitching inside an instrument to access all the articulations, had to switch to a "one articulation - one midi track" approach due to Ram reasons. It always seemed ridiculous to me how anyone could work that way and manage that many midi tracks. So...

    Cubase: Render a Channel Group in Place

    Hello, I'm sure someone somewhere asked this before but I failed to find the answer, Is there is a way to render Channel Group in Place?, or an FX Track? or a folder? The same way we "Render in Place" a Midi instrument/Audio Event? I always export my stems, and re-import them again to mix...

    Changing from 48.000 to 44.100Hz? (What to expect)

    Hello, even though I don't always export for videos, It's been years and I always record and mix in 48.000Hz inside my DAW, and I keep it that way "to be safe", and "Just in case". Now I am considering ways to minimize the load on my CPU, File sizes, loading/exporting time and RAM, so I want to...

    LA Scoring strings (or any) Setup outputs for each section.

    I like having each instrument section in it's own kontakt instance. (Basses on one, vln on one, etc.).. How should I go about routing my outputs for them? Say I have only Bass Spicattos that I'm playing all at once (A,B,C sections all playing at once). Should I route them all to one output and...

    Is it about the process or the result?

    If you want, and if you try hard enough, you may be able to make a whole song just with hi-hats. But if it doesn't sound good at the end, then the general public wont listen to it. It will appeal to the music producers because of the technical expertise that went into it, but then that is it...

    Scoring music first before DAW vs. playing music live into a DAW

    Hello everyone, I've been a lurker on this forum for a while, but I have just recently gotten back into composing.
