Retro65 starts creating their song arrangements using midi files in Cubase on an iMac. Midi tracks for drums, bass, guitar, piano, organ, brass, strings in Cubase are then pushed through a Korg Pa4X and/or a Nord C2D for recording wav tracks back into Cubase. Many guitar tracks are replaced by live recordings by our guitarist friends. Once a mix of the wav tracks is satisfactory, using various Cubase plugins (Compression, Delay, Reverb, EQ, etc.), the individual instrument and vocal wav tracks are exported in mp3 format and a directory containg the final mp3 tracks is added to the Multitracker engine. Note that many songs are not in the same key as the song by the original artist.
