A Cubase question/problem.

Recommended Posts

I feel embarrassed just posting this... Anyways...

I just recently got Cubase as a gift from a friend who didn't like it. Boy, must be my lucky day, eh?*Sarcasm* I've started to catch on a bit... But there is ONE thing that I cannot figure out, and I NEED help with.

I've got a MIDI track that already has a VST instrument as its output and everything. What my problem is that when I try to record the sound to an audio track, nothing gets recorded, so I'm stuck with a bunch of blank WAV files. Now, I'm pretty new to the whole "recording to audio" thing. For the three-fourths of a year I've been doing my own stuff, I haven't recorded a single thing to an audio track, so I'm lost. I've read a couple books, scoured the Internet for tutorials, and a bunch of other stuff. Also, for the record, I don't have a MIDI keyboard.

Sooo.... What I'd like to know is:

Am I doing something wrong? How do I record an audio track from a MIDI track? I've looked around for a week trying to find how to do this but to no avail. Does anyone know how to do this?

You want to record your MIDI project as an audio track? Simple! Look up above the track view, you'll see a ruler. Click your mouse in there, and you'll get the Locators (they look like a little white arrow pointing down). Drag them apart to the start and end of your project, make sure that everything you want to export is in the blue area. Now, go to File -> Export -> Audio Mixdown. Make sure all the options are proper (depends on what kind of soundcard you're using and all that) and save. After it bounces the audio, you should have a mixed audio track of whatever was active in your project.
