Forums like this are great for asking specific questions, like HH said if there's something you're having trouble with, ask away there's a bunch of people on here that use Cubase who'll be happy to help out.

If you need a more general intro, Dance tech have a 3 parter "beginners guide to cubase"

http://www.dancetech.com/article.cfm?threadid=160&lang=0

It's not the best in the world but it'll give you a good kickstart.

SteinbergUsers also have some smaller vids on specific techniques:

And read the manual, ofc :twisted:

EDIT: Forgot to mention, everything I linked is for SX3, but if you're using 4, its very similar, you'll work it out.

i think some peeps have probs with Cubase right at the start probably cuz they've hardly got any vst instruments / effects, its best to get some simple bits together, although you already have a couple that come with the program (a1 etc)

at the end of the day the very basics aren't rocket science - theres loooooooooooads of info on the internet especially nowadays (not like when i first started out and i had to teach myself everything with no one to help out lol), try google for starters, plus all the various dnb producer forums (there's atleast 4 really big production forums for dnb specifically online and loads more smaller ones)

also check u tube out, lots of tutorials on there :D

it was just loading samples etc but ive figured it out! just a quick question thou ive got a sub kick sample and it fits into half of the 1 box in the timeline and evertime i try and put the same sample next to it, it leaves half a gap if that makes any sense. cheers for the replys!

I think I know what your problem is. Go to the top of your screen where it says 1/8 or 1/16 etc.. (its a blue box second from the right)
then go one box over to where it says "bar" or "beat" and select "quantize" This way the cursor automatically clicks on 1/8th notes breaks points. This will allow you to slide the kick over more without leaving a gap. If this is not enough, then change 1/8 to 1/16 and do the same thing. Slide it over until it sounds proper. By changing between 1/8 to 1/16 etc it gives you more fine tuneability. I hope this works.
