When you get Cubase 4 with your product there is a booklet that comes with it that is far more informative than this.The language used is easygoing, but the explanations lack essentials to be found in the booklet.Setup is important, but very little of this is mentioned,and we are just told that it is beyond the scope of this book.This book needs to be expanded,with full...

This review is from: Complete Idiot's Guide to Recording with Cubase (Complete Idiot's Guides (Lifestyle Paperback)) (Paperback)
Stupidly I didn't check which version of Cubase this was for and found that it is totally out of date with my recently purchased software. It's a bit too much of an idiot's guide too. I was hoping for some more sophisticated tips.

This review is from: Complete Idiot's Guide to Recording with Cubase (Complete Idiot's Guides (Lifestyle Paperback)) (Paperback)
a good start into the world of daws. some previous experience would help but otherwise not to essential. other books offer alternate views and help but to fit it all in one book would be impossible. still recommended though.

5.0 out of 5 stars very useful ., 20 Feb 2009
This review is from: Complete Idiot's Guide to Recording with Cubase (Complete Idiot's Guides (Lifestyle Paperback)) (Paperback)
THIS BOOK IS VERY USEFUL IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A CLUE ABOUT HOW TO USE CUBASE.
I FOUND IT VERY EASY TO UNDERSTAND AND YOU CAN USE THE FULL INDEX FOR QUICK REFERENCE IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING IN PARTICULAR.
OVERALL A GOOD BOOK WITH ALSO LOTS OF HINTS ON MICROPHONE CHOICE AND SETTING UP A RECORDING STUDIO.
CHEERS
