One of the most important thing when working in a DAW like Cubase is the speed of your workflow – in particular, how long it takes to set up before you can begin music production. This music production for beginners video looks at how to create and save templates in Cubase. Cubase templates can be set up for instant recall, allowing you to start recording in Cubase at once. It can take a little practise to get right first time, but creating a template really helps to prevent wasting time in music production and with working fast in Cubase.

Benny Ceca says:

What I did is tracks which I thought had the correct setup and I was likely to make use of again, I backed up the project, got rid of the audio and events, then saved it as a template. This is probably how most come about creating templates, as only through working do you realise what you need and what works best for you. You can also do it like in the video, but it's lots of extra work when you've already done it.

When you want to make template from job project….warning about pool audio…backup project first??

Hi. These Videos really are helpful. I appreciate that much as Cubase and Halion user with more focus on musicianship.

Beside that, are there any news from Steinberg considering the future of dongle based security systems? I remember that someone said that maybe will be change in the future? Thank you a lot. Have joy and be sound.

Francis Bourre says:

What's the difference with a saved/setted empty project? Is it just about terminology or there are specific advantages?

Ryan Meursing says:

I just wish when making a template it would be the exact same thing when opening it. I changed the background of the latest created template, now all my templates have the same background.

Bryan Ferguson says:

I thought this software was pretty expensive when I purchased it, but learning how powerful it is, I've only scratched the surface on how Im using it. I made a couple templates so far, but they are no where close to the extent that yours are. Im still learning how to group tracks, adding effects tracts and linking tracks? Thats all new to me. Must take years to learn every thing this software can do. I only had version 9.5 a week and version 10.0 come out. I was mad I didn't wait a week before purchasing.
