reflex Cubase should have distortion plugins.I've got version 7.5 and that has the Amp rack plugin and that should serve all your distortion needs.If you are using a version of cubase that doesn't have a distortion plugin there are plenty of free ones available.?

Hi, i am using cubase5 and may I ask you a question about reverb issue? In your process of mixing, do you export audio mixdown then import it back to cubase to add reverb to the audio file and pan the two audio tracks to hard left and hard right? When i am done with the mixing, i feel the sound is good. But I was told by my experienced classmate that I should import the audio file and pan the tracks and add reverb to the final product. I tried this but it came out bad quality of the sound. I dont know should i do this still and is there something wrong? Can you help me out? Thanks!?

if you plug in the guitar straight into the sound card and edit the sound with cubase, can you add distortion or do you need one of those interfaces like a Line6 POD or such?? Can anyone help me??

does Cuebase have its own library or would you have to go out and record all the sounds

Great vocals … lol ­čśë

Do guy know Raz Klinghoffer the producer? 
Heard his mixes and they were awesome?

I am having trouble with this due to the fact that when I move my cross-fader to the left or right, I can still hear both songs, even though my cross-fader is completely to one side. Can anyone help as this is a brand new DDJ-SB??

Just hit play at the exact moment the other 'drops' with the volume half way. Bring it in over the next 32 bars. sorted?

Did not expect to see crossfader to mix with.?

However I think using another program to the mix. 
Please could you tell me which program uses in this video?.
