What You'll Learn

EQ & Compression in Cubase

If you want to get started mixing your own tracks in Cubase, this course covers the fundamentals that you’ll need to know.  Learn about EQ, Compression, drum mixing, instrument mixing, pitch correction, timing corrections and much, much more.  This course offers perspective and walkthroughs that show which tools to use and how to get the most from your EQ and Compressor in many different mix situations.

Where You’ll Start…

Start by learning how Cubase handles 64 bit plugins, licensing and creating your first project.  We’ll open Cubase up, load in stems (audio samples available with this course for free) and start learning how to use EQ, compressors, master channel limiting and frequency spectrum monitoring.  These lessons set the stage for specific mixing techniques covered throughout the course.

Mix Your Own Tracks

From instrument channels to automation, this course demonstrates real-world techniques for mixing step-by-step.  From EQ settings on instruments (synths and keyboards) to gating and compression on drums and percussion, this course uses real-world examples to showcase the flexibility and power of mixing primarily with EQ and compression.

When You’re Finished…

Once you’re finished with the course, you’ll feel familiar with Cubase and you’ll be ready to start mixing your own tracks using EQ, compression, gating and frequency spectrum monitoring.  You’ll learn how to optimize your computer for mixing just as you’ll learn to optimize your workflow with keyboard shortcuts.  We’ll even cover the fundamentals of pre-mastering a finished mix!  All in all, this course hits all the most essential elements in the Cubase mixing engineers workflow.

Cubase 12?

March 14, 2022

This course definitely helped me understand eq and compression. But, I think your version of Cubase goes back a little while and I’d love to see this stuff updated to most recent developments – especially dynamic EQ. Still very helpful, but please consider an update that would explain newer features?

I usually mix rock bands, so I’m not looking for mixing tutorials about electronica. I still enjoyed this course and I felt like I learned lots of useful stuff related to Cubase.
