What’s new in Cubase Pro 8.5 & Cubase Artist 8.5

This comprehensive update makes the Cubase experience even more direct and accessible, incorporating enhancements developed at the request of the many professional Cubase users worldwide. Cubase Pro 8.5 and Cubase Artist 8.5 not only offer a sleeker workflow and added creative tools but also an innovative cloud-based collaboration system embedded in Cubase: VST Transit.




Attention to detail

There’s hardly an area of Cubase that hasn’t been tweaked and improved in version 8.5: from MIDI editing and mixing to tempo changes and track handling…





Retrologue 2

Retrologue 2 takes Steinberg’s acclaimed virtual analog synthesizer to a new level, adding many enhancements implemented in a way that are easy and intuitive to use.

Virtual virtuosity

With many new features and improvements, Retrologue 2 has taken a big step forward without losing its remarkable warm and raw analog sound. An additional third oscillator, new polyphonic LFOs and an additional envelope are just some of the enhancements in the synth section. The highly flexible arpeggiator and five brand-new FX, with the innovative three-band Resonator leading the way, open up new possibilities for over 400 fresh presets that show off what Retrologue 2 has in store for you.
