Learn how to make your sounds more interesting with Cubase’s modulation tools

Time to make that flat, boring pad a force to be reckoned with.

So, you’ve loaded up a soft synth and made a patch, and you’ve played some nice chords for the basis of your track. But why does that synth part still sound a bit…boring? You can easily use some of Cubase’s stock modulation tools to spice up some elements of your track and bring more movement to your track.

In this Cubase tutorial, Bruce Aisher gives you a brief overview of some of the pitch modulation effects in Cubase. You’ll learn how to apply Chorus, Flanger, Phaser and Vibrato to your sounds, and understand how each one affects your sounds.

In our Cubase Tutorial series, we’re starting with the basics and gradually moving into more advanced and creative techniques, as in our Logic Tips and Ableton Live Tutorials series. Subscribe to our newsletter and YouTube Channel for weekly updates on new videos and content.
