You can also take a midi track and highlight the track and use locator bars
(make sure all other tracks are muted) and from the file menu chose Export
audiomixdown and mixdown midi to audio to the desktop and drag and drop
that way..?

this is similar i used to create FX empty track and then set the output of
midi VST track to FX track then create an audio track that receives input
from FX track?

See my problem is I cant route my midi tracks to anything except my midi
keyboard or the wavetable synth.. HELP?

Man could you talk any slower!!! You could have done this tutorial in a
tenth of the time

This was a fantastic answer to the very question that I wished I could ask
someone. Thank you for doing this video – and posting it. And don’t worry
about the haters commenting on the pace of your speech – you have nice

Great video. I’ll say, Excellent. Thanks!!!

I have a problem with recording audio from midi, I use Cubase SX3, I think
it’s probably simple thing but I think I’ve tried everything and I’m just
lost. When I press REC. the track is empty, it’s not recording…:( (sorry
for my English…)

I knew it, sure enough is a few minutes I not only UNDERSTANDING routing an
learning it saves a ton of resources and cpu, but now i can quickly route
my instruments now. I even saved this as a template to save time so I won’t
have to do routings on every project.

thanks !!! been trying to figure this out

Honestly as “slow” as you speak as opposed to the other guy complaining, at
least your not talking 60mph or in your case i think … 120km :), you are
right, you did take the time to help someone and honestly paused to the
video to type this as I know I finally found a video that actually helps..

Well, not everyone is an English men or American and therefor not speak
English as an Native language. If you cant respect the fact that im trying,
therefor try to teach other how to get this done, maybe you should move
along instead of making an comment like that?

(1/2) To create a Group Bus, Right click on the Dark Blue spot underneath
the “MixDown” Bus, a menu will open. From this menu you choose -> Add Group
Channel Track. This is the easiest method. There also other methods like,
Press F4 on you Computer Keyboard for Windows, a window will pop up. In the
windows you’ll see tabs in the upper part, click on the 3rd Tab, namely
GROUP/FX. Then you’ll have te property to “Add Group”. Click on this
button, choose your configuration (stereo track) hit OK 🙂

HELP! I have a recorded midi track on my Cubase 6le, from a full digital
drum set. I have the data there in the program, I also was recording the
drums from the headphone output, but I can’t hear anything. I have tried to
record the audio from it, from a million youtube hints but I can’t hear
anything. Even from the start of your video you could at least hear it. I
can’t hear anything and want to use the audio that was being recorded from
the headphones out into my usb interface, PLZ!

This tutorial is pretty clear, thanks so much.

A very nice idea!!! A similar technic can be found here: “Tutorial:
