Now that we’ve got our groove sorted, it’s time to start shaping our music production building blocks. Cubase Elements comes loaded with killer sounds in the shape of HALion Sonic SE 2 and Steinberg’s creative genius, the Chord Track. The Chord Track is going to take care of all the hard work. All you need to do is sit back and let a musical idea come to find you. You don’t even need to know how to play an instrument. Then add some flavor and color and let the Chord Track play the bass and a stack of synth tracks. You’ll soon have your production heading in the right direction.

We hope you find this video entertaining and useful. If you like what you see, please leave a comment and tell us what you think. Thank you.

Jeff Dafoe says:

Very helpful! I didn't know that the chord track chords could be drug to other tracks to create "normal" midi clips. I've watched hour-long videos on the composition process but there's something about watching it done in less than 10 minutes that is very helpful. It's like looking over someone's shoulder.
