Chapter 3.  Getting Started  >  Setting Up Your Project

Setting Up Your Project

Each project is saved as a CPR file, which is short for Cubase PRoject file. Inside this project file you can have a number of MIDI, audio, or video event references, as well as automation, effect, and VST instrument settings. Note that audio or video events are not saved with the project file. References to these media files are kept inside the project file, so when you load the project file later, it will find the media files where you left them, or if you have moved them since the last time you saved the project file, it will ask you to find them in order to load them properly inside the project. Furthermore, if you delete the folder containing the audio files used in a project file without backing them up beforehand, you will no longer be able to use this audio in your project, and Cubase will warn you that it could not load certain audio (or video) files.

As for the project settings, they refer to four groups of settings: the duration of the project, the frame rate when working with video, the display format and its display offset value, and finally its digital audio recording settings.
