FASTER WORKFLOW WITH TEMPLATES AND PRESETS IN CUBASE 9.5

Inspiration is easily sapped by the minutiae of setting up projects, tracks and plug-ins in your DAW. However, Adam Crute demonstrates Cubase has a few tricks to ease this perennial problem and keep those juices flowing

Inspiration is fickle. There’s no telling when a new melody or beat or sound will suddenly pop into existence in your brain. When it does, it can be about as slippery as a greased eel, with even the slightest distraction liable to return the idea, ghostlike, to the ether from whence it came. In the absence of a way to run a line-out from your brain’s internal sound system, then, the best thing to do is to get your idea sketched out in your studio as soon as possible.

Once upon a time, when that mystical fizzle of inspiration struck, you could just switch on a synth, bring its signal up on a desk, and then start to work out the idea almost immediately. However, with a modern DAW, you have to boot your computer, load the software, create a project, create a track, choose an instrument, find a suitable patch or sample bank for that instrument, set up effects and so on and so forth. The spontaneity is lost and the opportunities for distraction escalate with each step.

Thankfully, the clever folks over at Steinberg recognised this shortcoming with DAWs, and have packed Cubase with an effective set of tools with which to mitigate the problem.
