Top 9 Best Online Resources To Learn Steinberg Cubase DAW


Online learning resources, be it courses, videos, written content, one-on-one coaching, apps, et cetera, provide fantastic opportunities to learn (and teach) digital audio workstations like Steinberg's Cubase and audio engineering more broadly. Though nothing truly beats dedicated in-person DAW lessons, there are plenty of excellent alternatives online.

Note that by “resources,” I'm not only referring to video tutoring and full-length courses (though these are arguably the best options). I'm also considering masterclasses, videos and articles, and other online resources for learning the ins and outs of Cubase.

Though obviously subjective and prone to biases, I’ve done my best to list out these resources based on the following metrics (in no particular order):

  • Reputation of the learning resource
  • Quality of education in features (including built-in virtual instruments and plugins), workflow, arrangment and mixing/mastering
  • Organization and depth of learning
  • Adaptability of teaching to individual students (one-on-one lessons are best here)
  • The resource must be currently available

With all that being said, let’s list out the learning resources.

The top 9 best online resources to learn Steinberg Cubase are:

  1. Steinberg
  2. Berklee Online
  3. Udemy
  4. Sonic Academy
  5. Streamworks Audio
  6. Next Level Sound
  7. AM-Lab
  8. Ask.Audio
  9. Skillshare

In this article, we'll go through each of the above-mentioned resources to get a stronger idea of what makes them great for learning Cubase. Whether you're a complete beginner or a successful professional, there is always something to learn! I'll include links to check out each of the options for yourself to learn more about each resource. We'll also consider a few “honourable mentions” worth considering.

Cubase is featured in My New Microphone's Top 7 Best Digital Audio Workstations (DAWs) On The Market.
