    Old Musician/Engineer needs HELP

    I am in Portland, Oregon. Here is the deal, I am kind of from the old school......plug it in and play. I bought the GPO because right now the project I am producing, mixing, mastering and playing on is a rock symphony......kind of.

    What I need is someone in the Portland area to come SHOW me how to get this working ( I have read everything and it might as well be written in Chinese, I just don't understand it). I have played the GPO in stand alone with some of the songs and it sounds GREAT, just what I want BUT.....I CAN'T GET IT TO WORK in Cubase LE.


    HELP.....I'm running out of patience and beer.

    If anyone can come help me out my family would be very happy. Send me a PM and I will send you my phone number.



    PS I'll buy the beer.

    Hi its me again. Create an audio track, set the locators to start and end, move cursor to start, press red record button, wait til the end, press stop.
    Mixing and mastering, inserts and sends just like a hardware mixer. Not sure exactly what LE has, there are various different versions. Theres automation of recording and many options, start simple and work up, Oh and you can play the strat along if you wish. (is that a strat? hmm its hard to see)

    Thanks again. I'll try that and see what happens.

    That is my youngest son ( Little Bubba) with the Tele, he picked it out. We have a P Bass, Strat, Tele and a Yamaha So8.....My wife told me she would kill me if I brought a drum set home.

    Okay........I tried that....NO WORKIE...BUT......since I'm old school I brought up my main recording studio and set it to 'record what it hears'. It's kind of a pain in the rear end but it works. All I have to do is write down the timing mark I want it to come in on and the match it up on the mixing board after I get the midi track recorded to a wave. I'm going to need more beer for this CD.

    I know there is an easier way and I will find it some day but I can finish these two songs now and that is what I need to do...........



    .....before I go . LOLOLOL

    Hippie, try this. I regularly convert MIDI files (with GPO voices) to wav files. Set the left and right locators as described earlier, then go to the File menu and choose "Audio Mixdown". This will prompt you for file name, audio file format, and so forth.

    I do this all the time in Cubase SX3.

    UPDATE for anyone that has nothing better to do than read this.

    I still have some small problems getting things (GPO & Cubase) to work the way I think they should BUT....I have come up with some of the most unique Mickey Mouse ways to get around them I even surprised myself.


    Hey, don't laugh, they work.

    Cubase is so versatile that there are a dozen ways to do anything, you have to find the way that suits you, then learn the others slowly. There are still things I've not tried and I' ve had 4.0 and 4.1 since it came out
