Hey everybody my name is Matt and I’m speaking
to you on behalf of Expert Village. Okay the first thing you want to do is create a new
project so if you go up to file and click new project you get a dialog that looks like
this. These are templates that you can choose from when you are creating a project. I’m
going to create a empty one so just click empty and go ahead and click okay and you
will get a dialog that says select director. What you are going to do here is all you need
to do is create a director on your hard drive to save all of your files. So I’m going to
click on my c drive and hit create and this is going to create a folder I’m going to call
this my cubase project. Go ahead and click okay and that is going to create the folder
and make sure that is selected and hit okay. You are going to be presented with your main
cubase window here. The first thing I’m going to want to do is to save your project when
you created the folder you didn’t actually save the project so go up to file, go to save
as, go ahead and I save it as my project 01. I’m going to show you on my hardware what
the directory looks like. Here is my c drive and it is going to say my cubase project so
I’m going to click in there and you would see a file called my project 01 cpr that is
the actual file that we just saved out and you would see a folder that says audio this
is created automatically when you create the directory. This is where all of your audio
files are going to be saved. As you are working on your projects there would be also other
folders that are created by cubase mainly one called edit, one called fades, one called
images. Never delete these because they contain important information. Basically the edit
contains your off line processing, the fade is going to hold all of your fading files
and the images is just going to contain the image files for audio that you use in cubase
so you can be drawn quickly.
