Control Room in Cubase

Cubase lets you work and route signals as if you were in an actual analog console.

Monitoring is crucial when mixing and mastering, and fortunately, Cubase lets you setup a Monitoring Bus that resembles the Monitor Section of a board.

However, this is not the case by default.

If you want to have a “Control Room” monitoring routing, you must enable this feature.

This tutorial will demonstrate how to do this!

  1. Open a Cubase project:
