    wholey shit stienberg, i was hoping to learn how to use cubase ai but this comments section is 100% problems. NOT encouraging in the least! Especially on top of the fact that i'm here because I bought stienberg's Cl1 usb interface which came with Sequel LE7, and wavelab mastering software. Both open right and look like they work but neither software would work or even record or play audio on my macbook. So i just used the interface with garageband but the pre amp in the Cl1 blew out in under 1 month!!! so the store replaced it, and it happened again!! then 3 more times and the 5th time the pre amp in that piece of shit blew out i went and got another interface the stienberg UR22 which comes with a download code for free cubase ai 8 which i am now dreading to install…

  • Syed Armaghan Hassan

    Thanks for such lovely videos..
    One question though
    I am just a beginner.. Total newbie…
    While recording on Cubase 7, my Rode NT1a sounds like a laptop microphone..
    Have I been ripped off at my purchase of microphone by buying a fake one?
    Do I have to configure my audio interface and mic settings properly? Please help.. I am really worried…

    Thanks a million!

    Hello Steinberg and co…

    I have done as the instructions say in the beginning of the video, that is I clicked on NEW PROJECT and then RECORDINGS and clicked on PIANO AND VOCAL and then I prompted and chose a new folder, clicked OK and everything but the project shows up as a clean slate, that is to say that the piano and vocals have no track. what do I do? 




    Hi im having problems with my cursor, the default (I) shaped setting allowing the highlighting of tracks from the upper time bar is gone and i do not know where it has gone or how to get it back HELP!!! please

  • shoolini

    I have installed 64bit on my PC which run on Windows 8. I cannot hear my play back. Let me know 64bit is ok or do I need to re-install to 32 bit. I feel audio configuration is not set up correctly.

  • Pate Yate

    It starts off by saying "…right now, the song is just a piano part and a vocal" as if to imply that these were shown being laid down in a previous video (1-2.) The previous videos show how to connect everything, but hasn't started a song yet.

    They obviously skipped over a step that showed the piano and vocals being laid down.
