STEINBERG Cubase Pro 8 (Education Licence)
Digital Audio Workstation
The Steinberg Cubase Pro 8 digital audio workstation provides powerful tools to record, edit and mix music with professional, studio-grade audio quality at all stages of the process.
The latest version features a completely rebuilt audio engine that opens large projects up to four times faster and makes the MixConsole twice as fast. Complex instruments and plug-ins run with efficiency, requiring less processing power from the host computer with lower latency. Cubase is also now compatible with Yamaha’s Nuendo digital mixing console.
Cubase Pro 8 offers essential tools for composing, recording and producing songs songs. The integrated MixConsole combines flexibility with top-end channel strip modules for a pro- console sound and features.
Cubase Pro 8’s upgraded audio engine, industry-acclaimed tools and the seamless integration with existing studio gear make it well equipped for the demands of audio professionals working in the music, game and film industries.
With a separate video track, a scalable video window and a score editor featuring 100+ notation symbols, Cubase 8 is ideal for Film Composers. Steinberg’s VST Expression technology enables the creation of natural sounding orchestral scores with full expression control on single-note level.
Cubase is also now compatible with Yamaha’s Nuendo digital mixing console.
New features in Cubase Pro 8:
Render in-place - Bounce MIDI and audio parts easily by defining exactly what to include and render-in track FX in the newly created events. Trigger the command and a new audio track is created with all effects settings copied over from the original source track plus a rendered audio event, including intact event boundaries.
ASIO Guard 2 - Uses low latencies just on the tracks where latency matters while using a larger latency that saves performance for playback tracks. It now supports instrument tracks including multi-timbral and sample instruments that feature disk streaming. The internal ASIO-Guard buffering was also extended to improve the audio processing performance.
VCA Faders – Allows the movement of a group of faders using a single master fader for complex mixing and automation workflows. Use the Combine VCA fader automation feature to merge the automation curve of a VCA fader with the automation curve of a controlled fader or fader groups.
Improved Channel Strip EQ - Provides additional mouse-over value readouts for gain, frequency and the equivalent in note pitch. Enter pitch notes or cent values instead of Hz frequencies for each band. The Pre section now offers selectable slopes of 6, 12 (default), 24, 36 and 48 for high-cut and low-cut.
Wave Meters - Displays upcoming audio events with the respective waveforms that are found scrolling through the mixer pane above the volume fader.
Virgin Territories – Integrated in automation lanes to improve handling of automation data: when activated, no automation data is written between two automated events on the same track, making it possible to freely use the space in between two automations for parameter adjustments.
Direct Routing Section – Located in the MixConsole to set up group routing destinations for multiple channels, buses and stems at once with and create different mix versions of any session at once.
Dockable Instrument Rack and MediaBay – These are both displayed to the right side of the Project window. The result is the new Rack Zone with improved efficiency, which reduces the number of open windows.
Redesigned Track List and Inspector - Offers better readability. Track names are easier to find and the reduced set of track controls in the track list reduce clutter.
Plug-in Manager - Lets you arrange, sort and group your effects and instruments either at the top level or in custom submenus, making it easier to find plug-ins.
Improved Windows Handling - New windows handling paradigm including a new workspace organizer that makes for a more efficient workflow. Windows can be freely placed on any display and maximized, restored, minimized, tiled and cycled through by using standard Windows OS commands. Windows will now also group Cubase windows in the taskbar, preview window content and show mini icons.
New Virtual Bass Amp, Quadrafuzz v2, Multiband Expander, Multiband Envelope Shaper effects are also included.
