Instruments & Effects

Choose page content


Cubase delivers a rich palette of finest virtual instruments and each of them comes ready to play with hundreds of fantastic preset sounds — amounting to over 3,400 sounds in the Pro version right out of the box.

Retrologue 2

Retrologue 2 is more than a tribute to the classic analog heavyweights of the past. Packed into a straightforward interface, Retrologue brings back the sound of analog circuitry and vintage warmth, but with a modern twist. From raw analog lead and bass sounds to ephemeral, delicate pads and structures, dark drones and ultra-aggressive comps, Retrologue 2 is a stunningly powerful yet versatile subtractive synthesizer with loads of sonic personality and that is potentially highly addictive.

More Information


Padshop introduces a new way of granular sound design. Get yourself ready for out-of-this-world atmospheres, far-out effects and a user interface that’s a breeze to work with. Padshops features two independent layers that are based on an individual oscillator source and generate up to eight different grain streams. The edit section gives you access to parameters that really matter, including the high-quality low, high and band-pass as well as band-rejection filters with an integrated distortion unit. Two envelopes, two LFOs and the Step Modulator can be used to modulate a large number of target parameters. And with the built-in modulation and delay effects you can drive the pace for high tension atmospheres.
