Voice Command For CUBASE

Voice Command For Cubase was a project I started in 2018-2019 which gives users the ability to control Cubase with their voice via VoiceAttack (sold separately)

The project was originally abandoned due to life problems you may have read in the Phat Monkey section of this website. Countless hours and love had been poured into this project and over the past few days some more hours added to bring it up to 2023 resulting in a fun way to navigate Cubase and in some cases speeding up workflow

One thing you hear people ask all the time is does this and that plugin sound analogue but you are asking the wrong question. Nothing digital is going to sound analogue, the question you need to ask is does the plugin in question give your music depth, warmth, a 3D sound?

The main magician in your tool box should be a PRE-AMP and mixing different flavours of PRE-AMP's across your tracks at 48k or better. Yes I said 48k and not 44.1hz or better and the main reason for that is to limit aliasing, I guess you can call it a cheap form of oversampling"

However if you do want to go the analogue route I highly recommend  'Dangerous Music 2Bus+' it makes everything seem fat phat fat, warmer and 3D creating an awesome separation of various elements within your mix

Does your kick sound messy?

If your kick sounds like cardboard or a little boxy and you are struggeling to find the frequency to duck here is a little math trick to get your started

Find the root note of your kick, the fundimental, once you have this it is time to get out the old calculator, enter into the calculator the rounded off number of your kick fundimental frequency x 1.618 ÷ 2 x 10 =  

One you have your number have a medium size Q and drop the freqency by around 3db and see if that helps.

Remember this is a starting point not a magical number, always use your ears :)
