Re: Demystifying the Control Room In Cubase - Tutorial Series

I'll say that after many years, I still occasionally somehow mess up trying to solo a track, and wind up undoing all the mutes/solos of my project.

But not since I started using the Control Room :) ... I sort of cheat and use the "Listen" button, but have it programmed so that all the other tracks are attenuated to negative infinity. I know that's not the intended use of the Listen button, but I have to say I have never messed up all my Mutes/Solos in the rest of the project since I started using the Listen button this way!

(Of course it's also awesome to use it the intended way, to drop the rest of the tracks by 20dB or so :) ).

Sorry I haven't been around, I've been fairly occupied with life outside the confines of my computer lately. I appreciate the feedback, and I'm glad people are getting something out of the series!

I myself get a bit confused as well with the control room, like when i go to acivate the control room-my buss on the output section all turn off and there on diffrent outputs on the audio card, then when i deactivate the controlroom the output buss turn back on. Its like you can use only one or the other. remember these are total different outs being used on the out put interface.

Scott, thanks for the tutorials. I have not needed the control room until now so have ignored it. It's proving to be a great tool for my current productions. You're a great teacher!

@SLD Music,

Thanks for this tutorial series. I've watched them all and they were very thorough. I've only messed with the control room a little but I will definitely be setting up some templates with various control room setups. Thanks Again.

Everyone,

Thanks again for watching.

showmeeagle,

It's possible you're not using the full / pro version of Cubase. The control room is only available on the full version of Cubase.
