How I see a musician's career: philosophy and mindset (p.1)

Every producer has to develop his workflow. However, people have very different personalities, music and life backgrounds so there is no 100% working recipe to become a successful producer. Everyone should find their own way. This article is going to be about my experience and ideas on how to work efficiently. Starting from the mindset, ending with the technical tips. Most of this works for me but some advice I haven't implemented yet, I will though. Changes take time, mind has inertia.

Production in Cubase - Streams List

Here is a video list where producers are making music in Cubase. Leave more links in comments (no reg), I'll add them. Vote for your favourite stream and I will sort them accordingly.

All Cubase Preferences on One Page

Cubase' hotkeys, macros and tips (with gif examples)

We might take for granted the ability to modify hotkeys. But not every DAW has this feature*. Luckily Cubase is not one of them and you can set a hotkey for literally anything.

It is better to overcome brain laziness and learn hotkeys from the very beginning, Cubase don't spam with UI elements and gets some hate from point-and-click lovers for that. I think using hotkeys pays back pretty quick and gives you feeling like you operate a star ship, that flies you to your imaginary song instead of distracting your brain with necessity to search the right button on the screen.
