What's new


-- Edit faster with less clicks

Drum Editing Deluxe

Developed in conjunction with recording professionals and top-flight studio drummers, Cubase 6 raises the bar for multitrack drum editing tasks on all levels. Incorporating an entire new transient and tempo detection, phase stable audio quantization and drum replacement functions, Cubase 6 offers a complete toolset to perfect the rhythm, feel and flavor of live-recorded drum tracks. Whether it is about non-destructively correct timing issues or changing the tempo of a drum performance seamlessly — a tight groove is just a few clicks away.
A new transient detection — to slice them all
Based on a state-of-the-art algorithm, Cubase 6 introduces a straightforward and intelligent transient detection function. Finding all drum hits is a breeze now, thanks to the intuitive preview feature and two specialized filters, called Peak and Beats. With this powerful tool on hand, you can detect single hits, rolls and ghost notes faster and more accurate than ever before. After the transients have been detected they are merged across multiple tracks by taking user definable priority of individual tracks into account. The drumhits are then cut up and grouped together ready for detailed tweaking. In this way, copying that great fill from verse 2 to verse 1 is solved with minimum effort: select one, move them all.

Straightforward drum replacement
The bass drum needs some extra punch? The snare drum doesn’t cut through the mix? With the new Hitpoint-to-MIDI function, it gets very easy to replace, double or enrich live-recorded drum sounds. When the transients have been detected, a single click on the Create MIDI Notes button creates a MIDI track containing a MIDI note for each single drum hit. From here, it’s up to you which sampler or synth you want to fuel with the note. A good choice would be the powerful Groove Agent ONE drum sampler, included in Cubase 6.
Advanced tempo detectionCubase 6 features a newly developed tempo detection algorithm, which accurately and semi-automatically determines the tempo of any rhythmic audio material. This makes it easy to determine the tempo of a drum performance that has not been recorded to a metronome. The resulting tempo map can be used for to keep the dynamic feeling of natural tempo variations or to remove unwanted tempo changes quickly. Whatever rhythm is at hand, Cubase 6 will detect the tempo and match the track to a beat grid of your choice.
Multitrack audio quantization
In Cubase 6 rhythmic audio material can be quantized just like any MIDI material, offering numerous possibilities to fix timing issues and to change the groove of live-recorded drums. To preserve phase relationships between tracks, the individual slices on all tracks are still grouped and moved at once. Cubase automatically creates cross-fades between slices to ensure seamless transitions between them and fill gaps that might be introduced during quantization. A few clicks, and all drum tracks are matched to the bass drum, snare or whatever source or sources are desired. With the Slice Rules you can decide which sources will get a higher priority during slicing.

Conjure the perfect take

Cubase 6 comes with a new Lane Track concept for lightning fast multitake comping. When recording several takes, Cubase instantly creates a Lane Track for each take. From here, it’s just a short way to perfection: Simply swipe across the best parts of a take and Cubase automatically creates a master take that contains all selected parts. For comfortable comping, each Lane Track sports a solo button and full editing functionality — building the perfect take has never been that easy.

Bring together what belongs together

The new Track Edit Groups tool refines the work with multitrack recordings in Cubase. This new function allows multitrack editing with single-click actions. Whether it is guitar, bass or ambient recording, professional sound engineers mix several signals to get the best results. When recording a guitar for example, it is common to record signals from different amps or microphone types on separate tracks. With Track Edit Groups activated, related tracks are tied together and can be edited at once, making this new feature a huge time-saver.


-- The revolution unfolds: VST Expression 2

Maximum expression on every note

With the simultaneous release of Cubase 6 and VST 3.5, Steinberg is taking MIDI editing to a whole new level. Note Expression is the new smart way to assign, create and edit multiple controller values directly on single note-level — all in a single handy graphical interface.
The perfect choice for demanding orchestral arrangements and creating unique sound effects, Note Expression allows controller values to be drawn directly onto single note events in the Key Editor. Because each individual note event contains its own set of controller data, even polyphonic sounding notes can now be dynamically controlled — fully independent from each other. This way, composers can access controller information such as volume or pitch bend in one place, making it easy to scale, shift or delete several values at once. Best of all, when moving or copying a note event, the associated controller data will follow as well. Each single note event and controllers are treated as one unit, which makes working with instrument articulations faster and more intuitive than ever before. Breaking the traditional MIDI limitations opens up entirely new creative possibilities: Imagine a chord containing different filter sweeps, volume curves or dynamic expressions for every single note!
From ultra-realistic instrument sounds to the most unexpected sonic spheres, VST 3.5 and Note Expression enable a whole new creative approach to composition and sound design. And it doesn’t stop here. Use VariAudio together with Note Expression to bring lifeless MIDI recordings to life. With the Extract MIDI feature inside the Sample Editor you can make snapshots of the pitch and volume curves of monophonic audio recordings and paste that information into MIDI notes!

Make it dynamic

The VST Expression set has been extended and now also sports dynamics in the Key Editor. From pianissimo to crescendo and fortissimo — all dynamics from the Score Editor are available in the new Articulations/Dynamics Lane in the Key Editor.
When using VST 3.5-compatible instruments, you get instant acoustic feedback from parts that contain dynamics. What’s more, the Dynamics Mapping feature allows very fine adjustments for up to three controllers for dynamics, including velocity, volume and freely assignable MIDI CC.

VST expression on call

VST 3.5 compatible instruments such as the included HALion Sonic SE, as well as HALion Sonic and the HALion Symphonic Orchestra VST Sound Instrument Set can automatically transfer the articulation setup of each individual instrument sound to a VST Expression Map — a great function that will speed up the setup of VST Expression maps dramatically.


-- Make some noise

-- Work smarter, flow faster

Plenty of eye candy and snazziness

Cubase 6 features a significantly redesigned graphical user interface that not only looks good but also makes the huge Cubase 6 feature set even more accessible. Color and contrast optimization minimize eye strain and viewing fatigue during extended viewing sessions — this is pivotal when working long hours to meet project deadlines.
The brand-new look for Parts, Events, Arranger and Marker tracks helps you to distinguish between what’s important and what may not be so important in the Project window, while the revised Inspector and the overall new color scheme round out the fresh new design.

X64 support for Mac

The native Cubase 64-bit support under Mac OS X 10.6 64-bit increases the addressable amount of RAM from 2 gigabytes to an astonishing 1 terabyte. In plain words, the bigger your memory, the more tracks, plug-ins and samples you can use in Cubase. This also means you can easily use all the compatible libraries available on the market today. That’s what 64-bit support is all about.
Cubase 6 is all about enhanced accessibility, with all the benefits to ease-of-use and workflow that this entails. Building on enhancements engineered for the Sample Editor in Cubase 6, the Key Editor has now been extended to provide smooth and intuitive access to all pivotal parameters.

Cubase 6 provides a new command console for all the most important MIDI tools and functions in the form of the new Inspector. Expression Maps, Note Expression, Quantize, Transpose and Length are now close at hand, available from one central spot — it’s all a breeze in Cubase 6.
New scaling tools for controller and automation data offer a highly intuitive user experience when working with MIDI data, including simultaneous editing of several events and an dramatically streamlined look-and-feel. You are in full control: scale, rotate and move marked events up or down; all events are scaled smoothly in relation to each other.
Parameters can now be directly assigned to a Quick Control by simply right-clicking a VST 3 plug-in or instrument control. Alternatively, you can also use the Quick Control’s ”Learn mode” button to assign a plug-in or instrument’s control to an empty Quick Control slot.

Video tutorials included

Cubase 6 features more than two hours of detailed video tutorials produced by the experts of Streamworks Audio. Ranging from step-by- step instructions for beginners to advanced workflow and editing techniques, there’s something in store for everyone — recorded in finest HD quality and included for free.


-- There's more to stay for
Cubase 6 comes with many new and exciting features that make the latest incarnation of Cubase possibly the most comprehensive DAW to date. But it’s also all the small details that have been refined or newly introduced that make the overall Cubase experience not only more powerful but truly inspiring.

Why Cubase

The Cubase experience: Finest tools for artists

In 1984, Steinberg was founded on an ideal: to help artists to make music in ways that put their creativity first, and using technology that almost anyone could afford. Since then, Steinberg has developed some of the most successful music products and technologies including Cubase, the world’s most popular software for composing, recording and mixing music.

Defining industry standards for more than 26 years

Since the foundation of the company, Steinberg has constantly pushed back the boundaries of what is possible in digital audio. The advanced technologies included in Cubase 6 offer flexible, cost-effective and intuitive ways of realizing the artist's full creative and professional potential. Steinberg’s experience in developing highly performing cross-platform applications gives Mac and Windows PC users the option to enjoy Cubase on the hardware of choice.
VST 3.5: Steinberg’s industry standard Virtual Studio Technology VST Sound: Steinberg’s universal media management format ASIO: Steinberg's low-latency, high-performance audio standard
The leading Virtual Studio Technology (VST) standard, developed by Steinberg, creates a full, professional studio environment on your PC or Mac and allows the seamless integration of virtual effect processors and instruments right into your sequencing software. The revolutionary VST standard recently reached a new stage with the release of VST 3.5, a groundbreaking new version with a host of new capabilities, including VST 3 controller and Note Expression support as well as VST Expression Maps integration. Steinberg’s universal media management format — VST Sound — is a fundamental part of VST 3, Steinberg’s industry standard Virtual Studio Technology. By supporting VST Sound, plug-ins and instruments from third-party manufacturers can be directly integrated into MediaBay — the media management system used in Steinberg’s host applications. This integration makes the entire process of finding and working with any form of media file including audio, loops, VSTi presets, videos, MIDI parts and Track Presets, much faster and simpler. The Audio Stream Input/Output (ASIO) architecture forms the backbone of VST. ASIO addresses any needs a professional audio recording solution might have. It does this by supporting variable bit depths and sample rates, multi-channel operation and synchronization. As a result, the user gets low latency, high performance, easy set up and stable audio recording within VST. Since its introduction, ASIO has become a supported standard by many leading audio hardware manufacturers — for good reason.

Conjure the perfect take — Cubase 6 includes a new Lane Track concept for lightning fast multitake comping. Simply swipe across the best parts of a take, and Cubase automatically creates a master take that contains all selected parts. Each Lane Track sports a solo button and full editing functionality. Building the perfect take has never been that easy.


Pure Mixing

Cubase 6 provides a complete mixing environment that not only equips you to produce stunning mixes in stereo or surround, but allows you to tailor your mixing workflow to suit your own personal artistic and creative vision.
The 32-bit floating-point mixing engine in Cubase 6 has been engineered to deliver so much more than just a sumptuous smoothness and depth to your mixes. For a smooth yet powerful mixing workflow that supports your creative artistry, you also need high levels of configurability and flexibility to adapt all those powerful tools to your individual workflow.
Fully equiped professional mixer
With 128 physical inputs and outputs, 8 inserts per Channel, 64 FX sends as well as 256 groups/busses and unlimited routing between audio channels, busses, groups and FX returns mean that Cubase 6 is fully equipped for even the most complex recording setup. And even in the largest projects, the system-wide automatic latency compensation synchronizes all audio streams in your system automatically.
Three freely configurable mixer views allow you to show specific combinations of channels, channel types and zoom — guaranteeing full control over your session. The unique Track Presets system lets you store, recall and archive your track settings for just about any audio track or VST instrument for almost instant recall through the MediaBay.
Full Automation
The new automation handling in Cubase 6 provides a dedicated automation panel for quick access to all automation functions. The enhanced transparency and flexibility provides professionals with the capability to set up a complete automation within minutes and control the session clearly.

Free routing
Cubase 6 gives you complete freedom when routing audio in your project. The routing capabilities allow totally unlimited routing between group channels regardless of their order, and supports sending from groups to FX returns as well as from FX returns into group channels. For even more flexibility, audio tracks cannot only send signals into groups and FX returns with help of the pre fader sends, but also patch signals post fader from the output tab to group channels and FX returns.
Surround Mixing
Mixing for surround or thinking of moving to surround? The fully surround-capable architecture developed for Cubase puts all these capabilities at your command in the context of a surround mix. All Cubase 6 VST 3 plug-ins are fully surround-ready, intelligently adapting their I/O configuration as required for mono, stereo or surround. With its complete multi-channel audio signal path from input to output and the ability to export to the MP3 surround format for convenient delivery and distribution Cubase offers a consistent end to end surround workflow.

Sidechain input for VST 3 plug-ins
Sidechain inputs are available on most VST 3 plug-ins included with Cubase 6. Thanks to the “free routing” architecture virtually any signal
in the VST mixer can be used as a sidechain input signal. Sidechain is a crucial function for audio-controlled effects such as ducking (compression controlled by an audio source), but can be used creatively in many ways (for example controlling the LFO in modulation effects).

High-end EQ and pro reverb
By using the renowned Cubase Channel Studio EQ, you’re able to create high quality mixes right out of the box, including multiple filter modes and characteristics. But the Cubase Channel EQ is not the only plug-in that means you’ll be reaching for expensive additional plug-ins and hardware less often: the exceptional REVerence convolution reverb sets new quality standards within the audio mixing process.
Open GL video engine
Plus, Cubase features an Open GL accelerated QuickTime video engine with full HD support, scalable performance and the ability to play out videos via FireWire.

Each of its virtual pads features a complete sound processing section that gives full control of textures, timbres and expressive qualities of each drum sound. Creation of custom kits with drag and drop from the MediaBay allows an extremely fluid and easy workflow. Support for WAV, AIFF and the legendary MPC format means that creating your own kits and using custom MPC kits are only a few clicks away. And because the interface and workflow have been optimized to provide fast access and easy import and kit creation features, Groove Agent ONE is the perfect fusion of functionality and simplicity.
LoopMash 2
LoopMash is a revolutionary virtual instrument that offers a unique and innovative way of working with loops and beats to create stunning new rhythms and grooves. Seamlessly blendable variations of both the included loops and any loop from your library open up myriad new creative possibilities. Its revolutionary audio analysis/synthesis engine, developed in collaboration with Yamaha, matches similar elements across loops and beats, generating fresh and inspiring mash-ups from any rhythmic audio material — entirely synced to the Cubase Tempo. Integrated editing and the powerful live performance mode with user-definable scenes and automation support and its over 20 MIDI-controllable live and slice-based effects such as scratches, stutters and tape stops, make this instrument a powerful creative tool for any artist serious about their beats!
LoopMash is the first-of-its-kind interactive loop synthesizer that creative musicians working in many genres have been waiting for and offers almost limitless variations: all with the sole aim of getting the beats creative again.
Prologue is a polyphonic subtractive synthesizer with great sounding multi-mode variable resonance filters, powerful modulation capabilities and cranking onboard effects. Powered by VirSyn technology, this punchy virtual analog synthesizer is fed by hundreds of great sounding presets covering a wide range of sounds reaching from traditional analog to indescribable. Prologue’s intuitive user interface provides full editing capabilities with access to its three oscillators, powerful multi-mode filter, four envelopes, two LFOs, a powerful modulation matrix, and on-board effects.
Mystic is a very unusual but inspiring instrument with lots of personality, making it the perfect complement to Cubase 6’s other integrated instruments. Its synthesis uses a combination of physical modeling and comb filtering to generate unique and colorful sounds and is based on three parallel comb filters with feedback. The sound source is an “impulse sound” based on physical modeling technology. The harmonic spectrum of this sound is based on one of six waveforms and a set of two spectrum filters. The sound can be shaped with a filter (damping), by adding an offset to the comb filters (detune), or by adding a noise component (crackle).
Embracer is a simple but powerful polyphonic synthesizer designed entirely for producing pads and accompaniment sounds. With its easy-to-use envelope and tone controls, it gives fast access to the sounds needed without having to search through thousands of presets. However, the most powerful feature of Embracer is its surround output. With a single switch, the instrument can be turned from stereo to surround and the width control allows spreading its pad sound anywhere from mono to stereo to full 360° surround. The unique “eye” controller gives an exact idea of how the sound will be placed in a mix.
Monologue is a monophonic analog synthesizer based on physical modeling technology. It offers full, rich and colorful sounds without consuming a lot of CPU power. The Monologue synthesizer is the perfect tool for bass, lead and sequenced sounds.
