Following Up

Following up on the previous post, I’m trying my best to learn how to use Cubase. More specifically, these things:

1. How to compose using Cubase and my MIDI Keyboard.
2. How to import my compositions from Finale and assign instruments to each track so that I end up with a realistic sounding ensemble.

That said, I need all the help I can get right now, because I’m having a very difficult time figuring out these things. I’ve spent hours reading manuals, looking at online forums, tutorials and such. Anybody who can help out there?

On an unrelated note, a beautiful song that our band played last year:

A song that means a lot to me because it reminds me of someone special, who had a very special role in playing this song in our band.
