    It depends on what sort of sound you want to make. The best way to start off would be to get a kick drum going. Do you have any samples (i.e. .wav files) of gabba kicks? If so, go into Cubase, right-click on the blueish grey part to the left of the actual sequencer, choose ‘Add Audio Track’, then go to ‘File’>’Import Audio’ and the kick drum waveform should appear on the sequencer… Then it’s a case of arranging them into a 4/4 format, so they are hitting every beat (4 times in 1 bar).

    If you want to create sounds yourself, you’ll need to learn synthesis (pretty difficult to get a grip of at first, but SO fun when you learn what parameter does what). You can always use the presets tho. Anyway, if you wanna do this, right click on that blueish grey area again and select ‘Add Instrument Track’. A little box should appear with a drop-down menu, which should list all of the instruments (i.e. synths) that come with Cubase. I’d recommend getting a third party plug-in though; something like Vanguard is good to learn synthesis with.

    Hope I haven’t confused you too much, lol. Hope you get your head around it as music production is just the most awesome thing ever.

    OK… ive installed Z3ta+ which Daft recommended to me. But i dunno how to get a sound. Have no samples. A deep bassline would be good aswell. Wanna try an make either some speedcore or jungle. Know of any good tutorial on the net that you dont have to pay for?

    z3ta+ is a nice synth… Did you follow my instructions and open it? If so, once you’ve opened up z3ta+, go onto the sequencer screen to the right, click on the Draw tool (it’s shaped as a pencil) at the top of the screen, then select the amount you want to write in by holding down and dragging on the sequencer screen directly next instance of z3ta+ (this is called a Track, by the way). Once you’ve done that, there should be a grey or coloured block in which you can double click using the Object Selection tool (shaped as an arrow), at the top of the screen, to the far left of the Draw tool you selected earlier. This will bring up the Key Editor (also known as MIDI Editor) interface in which you can write down what notes you want to play…

    The first sound will probably be z3ta+’s default/start up sound. To change it, you’ll want to click out of the Key Editor, then go to the left hand side of the screen (on the far left, past the greyish blue bit I said about earlier) – you’ll know if you’re at the correct bit because the Track information should be there, including the volume and panning. If you look a few columns beneath the volume bit, you should see the inputs and outputs bit – the output should be selected as z3ta+. Beneath that, to the right, there should be something that resembles a gate (to my eyes anyway). Click on that and it will open up the z3ta+ interface, and from there you can look through the presets and find one that takes your interest.

    Again, hope I’m understandable – I’m usually shite at giving advice. As for speedcore & jungle tutorials, I’m really not too sure. I’d get to grips with the basics of Cubase first, before attempting to write something specific. YouTube has loads of wicked Cubase tutorials to get you started. Oh and MusicTech have released a Cubase-specific issue of their magazine that is a lot of help for beginners and pros. Cubase Tutorials – Music Tech Magazine

    Good luck, dude.

    right in cubase goto:- Devises>Devise setup>vst audio system

    then select “asio4all” from the asio driver dropdown menu.

    also personaly i like to have “realeace driver when in background” as it can stop the program cashing sometimes when you select something else in windows like your net brouser or msn .. just as examples

    then once you’ve done that see if it works .. if not all you should then have to do is set up the inputs (if you’re using any) and outputs what I can tell you how to do (I’m not sure if it auto sets up so see if what i told you to do works first)

    Cubase is above OK. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Then again, it’s all a matter of opinion. I’d love to eventually learn all 3 main DAWs (Cubase, Ableton and Logic), so I can do collabs with people on different platforms.

    What would you say are the major diferances to cubase that make it better?
