This group is for all the musicians at ModDB. I place to show off their work and to discuss music. You could also ask for help for a song or give suggestions to one another. If you are requesting help for a mod or game, PM me and I can relay the message on the news/blog. This way people don't get mass e-mailed :). I don't know what else to say so have fun!

Post tutorial Report RSS Basic Project Configuration In Cubase 5

A short tutorial on how to set up the proper bit rate and wave resolution in cubase 5.

Posted by on - Basic Music

Hello all, I am happy to put here my first tutorial. It will be a short one, but important nonethless.
My tutorial will be about how to set up the proper bit rate and wave resolution to use cubase to it's fullest.

Let's start by opening up cubase:

Second, let's open a new project like this:

tutorial part 1

Now, let's go to the project setup page.

tutorial part 2

Here is the main project setup page where you can choose the most important setting for all the project.

tutorial part 3

Open the sample rate box to choose your desired sample rate. The standard sample rate is 44.1 khz, but most of the new sound cards should at least give you 96 khz, and in the major studios and for DVD productions, you can also use the 192 khz rate. The most recomended rate for a first project will be 44 khz.

Open the small "Record Format" window:

tutorial part 4

Here you can set the resolution of the recorded wave files. the standard is 16 bit, but actually it would be advised to use 24 bit. If you have a lot of HD space and a fast computer, you can always use 32 bit float.

This is it, all that is left is to start a great musical project and start working :)
