Steinberg have just launched an update to their renowned DAW Cubase Pro and it’s alternate versions – Cubase Artist and Cubase Elements.
Steinberg’s massively popular DAW music software, Cubase, has been updated to version 9 bringing with it a bunch of new tools and features for an even fuller music recording and editing experience. This is the first time that Steinberg have updated all tiers of their Cubase software at the same time, updating to Cubase Pro 9, Cubase Artist 9 and Cubase Elements 9.
What’s new in Cubase 9:
Ground-breaking new features, streamlined workflows and stunning new plug-ins — the latest update enhances your favorite digital audio workstation in every direction and underlines Cubase’s claim of being the most complete DAW available. The new Lower Zone gives you direct access to editors and the MixConsole without leaving the Project window; the perfectly integrated Sampler Track opens up new creative possibilities; and the surgically precise frequency EQ takes your mix to the next level. The new Plug-in Sentinel, Multiple Marker Tracks, the improved Maximizer — Cubase 9 introduces loads of new features that you won’t want to miss in future music productions.
Zoning in on Cubase
Access all areas in the fastest and most convenient way. The new Lower Zone provides a neat and tidy overview. Your tools and editors are now just a mouse click away: the Lower Zone will enhance your workflow regardless whether you’re working mobile on a laptop or in a multi-screen studio environment.
Do you need that extra bit of flavor to spice up your production? Are you looking for a starting point? Enter the Sampler Track. It’s the fastest way to inspiration.
Just use any piece of audio to create a Sampler Track, play the sample chromatically, manipulate it with its on-board filters and controls, experiment and enjoy the sonic extravaganza only the Sampler Track can give you. And to top it off, the Sampler Track comes with Caleidoscope, a dedicated sample library with hundreds of samples and presets to get you started right away.
MixConsole History in the making
Ever wanted to compare different mixes with just one mouse click? Allow us to introduce you to MixConsole History. It’s a great new feature that tracks all changes made in the MixConsole and easily lets you choose several stages of your mixing process just by selecting them from a list. This means you’ll be getting your basic mixer undo/redo, but it also allows you to experiment freely with which mix suits your project best.
These are just some of the most impressive new features but Cubase 9 also introduces a brilliantly deep frequency EQ plugin, enhanced cloud integration for collaboration, an overhauled algorithm for their ‘Maximiser’ levels enhancer and much more.
