CUBASE GUIDES YOU ON YOUR MUSIC PRODUCTION JOURNEY
Do you want to start creating your own music, bring your production up to a professional level, or streamline your workflow for short deadlines? Whatever you need, Cubase helps you to reach your full creative potential. From Hollywood blockbuster composers and Billboard Hot 100 producers right through to keen beginners, the world of music production trusts the comprehensive feature set, straightforward tools and unrivalled sound of our acclaimed music production software.
Audio Warp Quantize
Warp-quantize multiple audio tracks at once using the convenient Quantize panel. By creating warp markers straight from hitpoints, both single audio loops as well as the entire arrangement can be non-destructively quantized with a single mouse click — just like MIDI parts. Importantly, because the audio events are warped, rather than sliced, they automatically follow any tempo or pitch changes of your project, while remaining uncluttered for easy arrangement.
Channel Strip (Advanced)
The channel strip modules are the very heart of our exceptional sound. Carefully crafted in close collaboration with seasoned audio engineers who have many years of experience working with the best hardware mixing consoles, the channel strip modules are integrated into every channel and deliver the stunning, professional mixer quality essential for you to turn your music into fantastic productions.
New Licensing System
For many years, the USB eLicenser has been ever-present for the Cubase community. But no longer. Cubase 12 ushers in a new era with a licensing system that doesn’t need a physical copy protection device and also lifts many restrictions of the past.
MIDI controllers are essential to every music production setup. MIDI Remote Scripts will help to automatically detect your device and map the controls. If there is no script for your device yet, you can easily create your own with the MIDI Controller Surface Editor. You can then conveniently connect controls and parameters with the Mapping Assistant.
This inspiring tool helps you compose music quickly and creatively. It is very easy to get “stuck” when writing chord progressions but, with the fast and easy-to-use Chord Pads, fresh inspiration will always be close at hand. Jam with chords and patterns in real time and control multiple parameters to change chords as you go. The chord pads are playable via a MIDI controller and real-time parameters allow you to easily improvise chord performances by changing voicings, tensions and much more while you are letting the music and inspiration carry you along!
Create the perfect version of a recording from multiple takes. Few performers are skilled enough to always get it “right the first time”’ in the recording environment, so comping is a vital part of the process. When recording several takes in a loop, Lanes are created instantly for each track being recorded. From here, it is very simple to create the perfect version. Simply swipe across the best parts and a master take containing all selected parts will be created automatically. In addition, the Comp tool offers extremely useful click-and-drag features for instant results.
Sampler Track 2
Take any piece of audio and use it to create a Sampler Track. You can then play the sample chromatically and manipulate it with the onboard filters, controls and two LFOs, experimenting to come up with new and innovative ideas. Slicing mode chops up your loops so they’re ready-to-play with just a click while, for the 808 lovers, there’s the mono legato glide!
Cubase’s MixConsole excels not only in terms of usability, look and feel, but also sounds like a high end analog mixing console. Featuring a scalable, dedicated full-screen mode, the MixConsole is optimized for mouse-free operation – virtually all channel elements are accessible via the computer keyboard and screen reader software for the visually impaired. Featuring View Sets and Channel Zones for the utmost flexibility, ‘one click’ direct routing, customizable track icons, track notepad, drag-and-drop support and plug-in / channel search function, the it feels like having a state-of-the-art mixing console in your computer – and sounds like it, too.
VariAudio offers fully-integrated vocal editing and pitch change of individual notes in monophonic vocal recordings, allowing you to solve intonation and timing problems with just a few clicks. Editing vocal lines in the Sample Editor is as fast and seamless as if editing MIDI notes in the Key Editor. Full integration with the Chord Track ensures correct pitch for your harmonies at all times, even letting you harmonize your lead vocals in stunning choral arrangements. Smart Controls significantly speed up your workflow by allowing direct control of all parameters at each segment. You can edit the micro pitch level for smooth drifts and transitions, adjust the formant shift for perfect natural tones or drastically transform your recordings with extreme pitch corrections… and everything in between. And if you want the popular ‘robot voice’ effect, it’s easily achieved!
Set your song’s scale in the Key Editor and follow its lead, quantize a solo to the scale or play live in perfect tune. You can change the view to only see the notes of the set scale. You can even let the Scale Assistant analyze your MIDI recording and suggest the right scale.
