- Are you tired of struggling to understand CUBASE? 

- Do you feel like CUBASE is too complex and holds you back from creating your music?

- You know the basic stuff but don't feel like you're using CUBASE properly?

You don't need to feel that way.

Hi, my name is Chris Selim. I’ve been working as a full-time music producer/mixer over the past 15 years, producing, recording and mixing more than 75 albums. CUBASE has been my #1 DAW of choice since the first day of my production career.

When I first started to work with CUBASE, my first challenge was the complexity of the software. In order to fully understand CUBASE, I had to learn the hard way by looking everywhere for answers to my problems. When I struggled with a problem I would browse the web for hours asking questions on forums hoping to get a quick response or I would read the manual which was not an easy task.

 I felt unproductive and frustrated because I would spend all my time searching for answers and not creating music.

Does this sound familiar to you?

If you’re reading this you probably know what I’m talking about: you start to work on an idea, you run into a problem and don't feel comfortable enough on CUBASE to solve it. So instead YOU SPEND A MASSIVE AMOUNT OF TIME watching Youtube videos and reading articles online trying to solve your problem. 

When you FINALLY find a solution and you try to get back to work on your project, you discover that the inspiration of the moment IS NOW GONE. Your brilliant song idea has evaporated into thin air. So you pick yourself up trying to get back to work and before you know it you run into the next problem and there you go again...

I understand exactly what you're going through because I've been there.

I've come a long way since then. Working with CUBASE is now second nature to me and trust me when I say that there's no better feeling than hitting the studio to be creative and being able to USE CUBASE LIKE A PRO with confidence.

When you get to focus on producing, recording, mixing not only do the technicalities of CUBASE stay out of your way but you feel like it gives you full control and confidence. That's an amazing feeling and you feel like a champ.

LUCKY FOR YOU, I want you to experience that feeling so I have created THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO CUBASE to take you there quickly and easily so when you hit the studio you feel like you've got full control working with CUBASE and when you do run into a problem you easily and quickly find a solution and get right back to work.


“I discovered Chris´ YT channel earlier this year while upgrading my CB from 6.5 to 9.5 and learned, that the new version is a whole new world. I kinda binge watched his vids and was sure that if Chris ever does a course or a guide I´ll be part of it. And here I am and can just highly recommend it! ”

“Chris; Thanks a lot for this course. Is an awesome guide for most of the main elements that we need to improve our workflow. In addition, the course has a very practical style and with the continuous examples that Chris uses and with its excellent didactic, everything is easily understood. As a suggestion, it would be great to have subtitles available (in English and in some other languages, such as Spanish) for people who do not fully understand the English language. In any case, having an acceptable level of English, and since Chris is Canadian, his accent is easily understandable and for me (English intermediate level), I have understood everything easily. Summary, a highly recommended course that has met all expectations. Thanks a lot again and keep on touch!”


“I had bought Cubase 2 years ago and have been struggling with it ever since. This course has opened my eyes to the possibility of doing more as a musician. As a Guitar player I cut my teeth using Audacity for 3yrs with the Plugin Guitar Rig5. Youtube was helpful but nothing really instructive enough. I have learned more by watching this coarse for the last 3days then I ever new from watching Youtube. Thank you Chris.”

“Finally, a tutorial series that dives right in and tells me just enough to teach me and keep things moving - you nailed it , my friend. I’ve been suffering thru Cubase for months now - and I’m soaring ahead today. By leaps and bounds. Dude, how can I ever thank you. You’ve probably saved my creative life and I am likely going to have a local mixing career because of you. Ha!!! You are a very special instructor within the larger pool of online mix masters. Can’t thank you enough. ”

“This is the 4th Cubase course I've done but the first from Chris. This is far and away the best. I got 3or 4 good takeaways from each of the other courses, whereas I was getting that much from each session with Chris”
