How To Use - Cubase 13 Beginner Level 1 / 1680

Cubase 13 Beginner Level 1

View Course

With the launch of Cubase 13 we have updated our Beginner’s Guide for those of you who have purchased, are looking to purchase, or are considering changing your current DAW.

Over the next 15 videos, Nate Raubenheimer, aka Protoculture, will take you through the key areas of Steinberg’s Cubase.

This is a Beginner Level 1 course where Nate will show you how to get up and running with the software, from opening it for the first time to creating your first beats, sounds, and finishing your first track - all with his expert workflow tips so you can get the best start possible.
First up, we take a look at the audio setup and user interface of Cubase 13, showing you all the key areas you’ll need to know, and then we bring in some drums to create the groove. Next up, we add some synth, bass sounds, and transition effects, and lastly, we finish off by arranging the track to create movement and tension with automation, adding some pads and arpeggiated melodies, mixing the track down, and then exporting the track so it can be played anywhere.

This course solely uses Cubase stock plugins, and, as with all our courses, we provide you with additional resources so you can easily follow along.

I don’t see the MIDI parts. Filter is set to all media types. Finder doesn’t show them.

I downloaded the course resources files here and have opened the Sonic Academy Cubase Level 1.cpr Cubase Project File and the MIDI Clips show correcly inside the project ( even in Cubase 12 ).

I don’t see the MIDI parts either in Media. Have you been able to figure it out? I’m at tutorial 8 and can’t continue without it. :frowning:


Welcome aboard on the forums :sunglasses:

Please check this previous post here, the MIDI Clips are inside the Cubase project :+1:

Hi @Tekalight

Yes, the midi appears on the track when you open up the project file, however it doesn’t appear in Media Bay / Finder in order to build the track as per the tutorial session.

I’ve also made sure to have “all media files” selected.

And in the course resource file there are no MIDI files within, only the Cubase project file and the other audio files.

Yes, the Midi files are only available inside the Cubase Project, they were not included in Media Bay or in the course resource downloads.

I just replied to your support email with a workaround for this and included the extracted Midi Clips from this Cubase Project.

Hope this helps ! :sunglasses:

Thank you @Stef_CS for the workaround, and teaching me something new!

This is a fantastic course, great explanations and easy to follow.


Happy to read you’ve got it sorted ! :+1:

Once done with this Level 1 course, you’ll find the Level 2 course here

Cheers :sunglasses:
