Step 4: Drag and Drop the Presets on the track

Next, locate the vocal preset files you downloaded on your Mac or PC earlier. Extract the file’s contents by unzipping it.

Then, click the vocal preset file with your mouse, drag it to the audio track you created on Cubase, and release the mouse button to drop it. And voila! You got yourself a crip studio finished audio.


The vocal preset will seamlessly integrate with the track, bringing its magical effects to enhance your vocals. No complicated menus or settings to worry about- just a straightforward drag-and-drop!

Step 5: Adjust the Settings (optional)

You can alter the vocal preset settings to complement your voice perfectly. You may turn the knobs to adjust reverb (to provide the impression of distance) and equalization (to highlight certain aspects of your voice).

As long as you are satisfied with the sound after this stage, there is no need to make any changes. The vocal preset is designed to work like magic on your audio without any adjustments. Sometimes, the presets default setting is all you need.

Embrace the power of vocal presets, let your creativity soar, and witness your journey of vocal transformation.
