Audio recording with Cubase

Steinberg’s wealth of engineering experience in digital audio stretching back over nearly three decades provides the basis for its state-of-the-art recording capabilities. With its emphasis not only on technology but also on user friendliness and ergonomics, Cubase provides everything you need to record your audio with ease and utmost quality.

Next-generation audio engine

The award-winning Cubase audio engine delivers a crystal-clear 64-bit floating-point resolution and 192 kHz sample rate, with a pristine sound quality that is the hallmark of the Cubase music production experience. And the Cubase audio engine also includes true surround capability throughout, with each track and channel offering up to six discreet channels, ready for 5.1 surround.

  • Retrospective Record: no take ever gets lost because record mode wasn’t engaged in time
  • Exemplary FX handling: any VST plug-in can be recorded with the signal, or simply used for monitoring while the untouched, pristine signal is recorded in Cubase
  • Intuitive user interface supports even the largest recording rigs, with easy-to-use folders, customizable Track views and custom color schemes for Tracks that differentiate track types at a glance
  • Effortless I/O handling: the VST Connections window allows you to not only setup custom I/O setups and customize port names but also switch between different I/O setups on the fly
  • Re-record mode: simply hit the record button again and the recording will start from the original position preserving the original pre-count and metronome settings

Control Room


Engineered exclusively for Steinberg’s audio production systems and unavailable on any other software workstation, the Control Room is a unique recording and monitoring environment seamlessly integrating performer mixes and monitoring setups into your recording and mixing workflow.

Cubase allows you to create and manage up to four unique studio mixes feeding performers their own tailored mix, to use the integrated talkback function, manage audio sources feeding from tape, CD or DVD — all seamlessly integrated in the Cubase MixConsole.
