Great, great tutorial! Can't wait for the next, and the next. Now, where does one get the in depth training on Cubase AI8?

You Tube. Steinberg has a channel with a full library of videos.

You can Goole search for them by typing:

Cubase AI8 site:YouTube.com

This will return you a wealth of results. You can always ask specific questions here, or through your MySteinberg Account.

Hello,
Can we record a Performance into one midi channel and use Cubase -Midi-Dissolve Part to separate that Performance to each midi channel.

For Example: I have a Performance which contains 8 parts, I am going to record it into once midi channel like in the video that Bad Mister shown and use the Midi-Dissolve Part to separate that Performance to each midi channel?

Thanks

No. If you record a PERFORMANCE with 8 PARTS to a single MIDI channel - the ARPEGGIO data will not be split to separate Channels. So what is recorded is just you pressing the keys... Not the output of the arpeggiators. When you wish to document data under control of an arpeggio you must use multiple MIDI channels. (MIDI I/O Mode = Multi).

When you want to record a PERFORMANCE with 8 PARTS to Cubase - you would setup one MIDI Track - but set the MIDI Track's OUT to "ANY". This will allow the Track to OUTPUT data to the Montage on the MIDI channel on which the data was received.

Let's use DJ Montage or Kreuzberg Funk as examples of 8 PART PERFORMANCEs.
Press [UTILITY]
Touch "Settings" > "Advanced"
Make sure the Montage is set to "MIDI I/O Mode = MULTI"
This will allow each of the 8 PARTS to be routed OUT via MIDI on its own MIDI channel. Just one Track but separate Channels.

While in UTILITY, touch "Quick Setup"
Select the "ARP Rec on DAW"
This will make all the critical settings concerning MIDI routing and the Arpeggiators

Touch "MIDI I/O" and make sure the MIDI SYNC = MIDI

You will make Cubase the Master Clock source: In Cubase go to TRANSPORT > PROJECT SYNCHRONIZATION SETUP... > MIDI CLOCK OUT > Destination = Montage 1

This will allow the TEMPO as set in Cubase to determine the Tempo for Montage.

With the singe MIDI Track set to "ANY" you will be able to record the entire output of the Montage to a single TRACK. but each Part will be on a separate MIDI Channel on that Track.

Once you complete your recording you can then use MIDI > DISSOLVE PART to separate the data to individual Tracks. MIDI Channels only need to be separated to make it easier to EDIT them.

Are you using Cubase AI or Cubase Pro?
