Creating Macros in Cubase | Tips, Tricks and Workflow Enhancements

Key commands allow us to create quick short-cuts to perform various functions. Macros are different because they allow us to combine a number of tasks and assign a key command so these tasks are performed in order whenever the key is pressed. In this video we quickly cover the steps involved in creating your own macro.

We hope you find this video entertaining and useful. If you like what you see, please leave a comment and tell us what you think. Thank you.

  • Lift Where You Stand/Can

    Here's to hoping Steinberg puts some love back into Macros again, by letting you move commands up and down once they are in the macro without having to start over. I am thankful for Macros in Cubendo they have saved me hours but I have also spent hours remaking them to add one simple command as the software has changed over the years. Macros I don't think has seen any new love in over 15 years. I am pretty sure they are the same as they have been since Cubase 1 in 2001. There are so many pleas for an update for a simple delay function and reordering the macros without starting over to insert something.

    Easy Andy. This kind of stuff is super useful. Would be amazing to have some videos about logical editor.
    The one thing I find doing often is once you've mixed the track, I need to bring down all the track faders a few dB including the volume automation, would be dope to have a logical editor macro that does that. I had something similar before but I lost it somewhere. Logical is the most powerful, yet most underrated and overlooked part of cubase.
