How voices are created

Cubase allows for up to eight voices. The first thing you do is to set them up. This includes “telling” the program which voices belong to the upper clef and which belong to the lower, how you want rests displayed for each voice, etc.

The second thing you do is to move or enter notes into the voices. If you have a recording done already, the program can do much of this work for you, automatically. You might then want to fine-tune by moving one or more notes into another voice, or you might want to add notes to a certain voice.


Each voice is polyphonic. In other words, one voice can contain chords.
