Reviews - What do customers think about Cubase Power!?
Execellent Publication Feb 27, 2003
This book is an absolute must for anyone using Cubase. Don't waste time, paper and ink cartridges printing out the 1,000 plus pages from the CD. Just buy Cubase Power and let the learning begin. Suddenly, it all begins to make sense. I was surprised to find that I actually ENJOY reading this book! It's clearly illustrated, clearly written and well organized. If there's a better book, I haven't heard about it. In fact, I'm taking a class on Cubase and presented this book to my instructor to consider using it as the class textbook. Need I say more? It's a winner.
A good, solid investment for the Cubaser (beg. or adv.) May 9, 2002
I purchased this book before I even bought Cubase 5.1 VST- I had used it before, but always with someone who knew what was going on. I had no idea how MIDI worked, and now, I was planning on jumping in to one of the most detailed, most intricate, most excitingly complex pieces of Audio/MIDI Recording Software ever made. It was overall a good read and worth the money I paid for it. Although it tends to favor the PC in its diagrams (I run on a new iMac under OS 9.2.2), with a little imagination you figure things out rather quickly. Often times the explanations of functions are a bit winded and made to seem much more complicated than they are. (For example explaining every tool in the different Tool Bars...the Eraser is for to erase...) However, the book does go in to detail about the heavier side of Cubase-the more advanced "stuff". It is a great supplement to have along with the Cubase manual, and far easier a read than megabytes of PDF file.

This book saved my life. We don't have many Cubase users here in Rio de Janeiro. I decided to use it and 2 friends did it too. But...the Cubase Manual is very dificult to understand. After I bought this book(the PDF version yeah!), everything comes easier. We printed it an now WE GOT THE POWER!
Worth every penny! Jan 12, 2002
This book has proven to be an invaluable resource for me. A friend of mine and I have jumped leaps and bounds over previous experiences with Cubase VST, especially in the MIDI department. So much so that we sold our ADAT studio-Cubase is by far a simpler beast with less complications. I would highly recommend this book to the Cubase beginner/intermediate. I think it is way better than the manual.
Hoped for More Dec 27, 2001
I bought this book hoping to find some interesting tips and insights into the use of Cubase, i.e.,things not clearly explained or missing from the Cubase documentation. In the several years I've used Cubase, I know I've discovered many things that I felt were not that well explained or missing in the documentation, and I was curious to see what another experienced user might have found.
I've only had the book a day or two, but so far and I'm pretty disappointed. The book seems to be mostly a rehash of the Cubase documentation.
Still, in a reference book like this, who knows when one will come across that one tip that justifies the price of the book. I hope that I will eventually find several such tips.
