    Looks like they re-invented the Fasttracker.

    Cutting samples from audio a loop and rearranging them is an ancient method.
    People used to do it even with Amiga 500.

    It’s very frustrating for a sequencer application to implement this feature at it’s 5th version.

    what is the best cubase ?

  5. InsanePlayer says:

    If you mean the Transport panel its probably because you have dragged it out of your screen, so it’s activated but ‘outside’ your actual screen.
    Or you just have it deactivated, in that case go to;
    Transport > Transport Panel

    Sad.. you don’t even learn how to use it before u try to do something..
    Nothing will be that simple.. For a powerful software like this.. u just gonna take it like Office XP? .. take ur time read HELP or Tutorial videos if u are first time user to music-producing softwares.

    Thank you for your reply, but the problem is not ”the way how to reach there”. I know how to go there, but the problem is that when I double click on the track, nothing will happen; also if I go to Midi> Open eky Editor, it only shows as shadowed, or grey (if I may say so). That means that Key Editor is not activated. I also open different instruments and plugins in different tracks and THEN try to click on Open Key Editor, but it won’t open. DEACTIVATED !!! Thanks to anyone’s help.

    No this program doesn’t suck. This is the first good program I’ve used and I’ve used fruity loops, Acid pro, Sonar, Garage band(Another good one) and then this

    Reason 4.0 is really good, and very easy to use

    Idon’t have much experience in Cubase, I am a new user, and this software is professional too, but it is the MOST COMPLICATED software, terribly difficult to use. I’ve been trying for 1 hour now to find and open Piano roll, and yet I can’t find it.

    This program Cubase 5 … SUCKSSSSS!!!

    I have Cubase 5. I am almost familiar with Groove Agent and Beat Designer. But I don’t know how to create variations in the beats in the Beat Designer. If I click the icon in the Beat Designer I am able to use only the main drum pattern and I am unable to give variations even after I compose the variations in Beats. How do I change the beats with beat designer with the Groove Agent one on? I am forced to open a new track to give the variations and if I do that the tone of the drums changes.

  20. ScrewFearMe says:
