The Steinberg Spotlight is on Ian Kirkpatrick

LA-based Ian Kirkpatrick writes and produces songs for some of the biggest names in the pop world, including Selena Gomez, Dua Lipa and Justin Bieber. On one of the many occasions we met up with Ian, he invited us to his studio to show us how essential Cubase is to his creative process, how its capabilities help to expedite his workflow, and how vital this has been to his career and that of many other music professionals around the world.

Check out the other Steinberg Spotlights videos with Ian where he speaks highly of two of Cubase’s fundamental tools: the MediaBay and the slide function. Ian uses the MediaBay to search for the right loops, playing them in tempo sync with the song he is working on, while the slide capability lets him experiment with samples and loops, providing unexpected but extremely useful results.
