    Just picked up a Zoom H4 and was wondering how I get the files into Cubase for editing, eq, etc. The file sounds great in the H4 but I'd like to tweak it a bit and am basically clueless.

    Thanks in advance.

    I don't know what format the Zoom renders audio files, however once the files are on your hard drive, make sure that they're in Cubase-readable format: wav, aiff, ogg, mp3 etc. Once you've done that, open Cubase and open the Audio Pool window (CTRL +P). Once there, browse for the file and double-click it in the file list box. The file will now be included in the audio pool, provided that it's in a Cubase-friendly format. If the file is shown in the audio pool, simply drag it onto an audio track in the Arrange Window. You can then insert EQ, Chorus or any other Plug-in to tweak its sound...

    Hope this helps!
