Available now: Cubase Pro 8 and Cubase Artist 8
December 3, 2014
One year after releasing the point update, Cubase is back with major updates boasting a vast range of studio-grade audio and MIDI tools for composing, recording, editing and mixing.
First and foremost: Cubase becomes Cubase Pro. The name change reflects the 25-year evolution of Steinberg’s advanced music production system and spearheads the Cubase range of DAWs.
Both Cubase Pro 8 and Cubase Artist 8 witness a massive engine rebuild, which lets you run more instruments and more tracks. ASIO-Guard 2 is the magic word, improving the audio processing performance for instrument tracks and channels. Automation enhancements are key to Cubase Pro 8, giving you VCA faders and virgin territories. Yes, and we’ve added render in-place to both versions for bouncing MIDI and audio parts in a really easy way. Chord pads, Chord Assistant modes and MIDI tempo detection are introduced to the creative feature set of both Pro and Artist, while the new Rack Zone provides a dedicated area for the MediaBay sound browser and VST Instrument Rack. The redesigned Track List and Inspector, the new plug-in manager, global workspaces plus improved windows handling on PCs make the lives of Cubase users that bit easier. Then there’s the rejuvenated Quadrafuzz multiband distortion plug-in, the new Virtual Bass Amp, Multiband Expander, Multiband Envelope Shaper and many other effects. Groove Agent SE 4 now includes an acoustic drum kit, the Acoustic Agent, with 20 drum style patterns. The MixConsole has also witnessed feature additions and there’s a new version of VST Connect for remote recording over the Web.
Apart from the new features in these latest iterations, Cubase has always provided a comprehensive feature set, guiding you through all stages of the creative process. To get an overall impression of Cubase, its capabilities and line-up, we recommend visiting the Cubase product pages.
