Introduction

Creating a Music Track in Cubase Jamie Maunder 12CAL Introduction: We were set the task of creating a music piece in the music software programme Cubase.

The tempo of my piece was set to 130 and I found that trying to play the melody at this tempo was difficult. I slowed the tempo down to 100, which made the task much easier.
