In this three-minute video from the full course “What’s New In Cubase 9”, Cubase expert Matt Hepworth delves into the new ways in which you can use MixConsole.

Matt demonstrates how to show and hide these various sections depending on what you’re trying to achieve, and how you can use the Tab key on your keyboard to quickly shift focus between zones without having to click on them with the mouse. Getting to grips with the Focus Zones is essential to speeding up your workflow in Cubase 9 and you can check out the other videos in the course to learn about more new features in this update!
