One for Cubase users’ Christmas lists: Steinberg have announced that version 7.5 of Cubase and Cubase Artist are going to be here just in time for the festive season. With new track handling and recording tools, instruments and first-class effects processors, it’s an ideal digital stocking filler for producers and audiophiles everywhere.
What’s new in Cubase 7.5?
It’s been a year since Cubase reached its 7th version, and in that time Steinberg have been working on a number of updates. The main ones to look out for, according to Steinberg, include:
TrackVersions. For creating, renaming and managing parallel versions of tracks.
Track visibility. Shows only the tracks you want to see in the Project window.
Instrument (t)rack 2.0. Supports multi-outputs and multi-inputs, and merges instrument tracks with the Instrument Rack.
HALion Sonic SE 2. Giving you tons of fresh new sounds plus a totally new synth.
Groove Agent SE 4. With 30 new drum kits and smart user interface for creating beats and hits in no time.
New EDM construction kits. Adding flavour to your productions and giving you new song ideas.
LoopMash FX. For realtime modern-style breaks, tape-stops, stutters and more.
REVelation. Super-smooth and silky-sounding algorithmic reverb that brings back the memories of those old fancy hardware units.
Magneto 2. Adding warmth to your tracks.
VST Connect SE 2. Unique remote recording plug-in now with MIDI data transmission.
Transient navigation. Tab to transients on audio events in the Project window thanks to the new instant hitpoint navigation.
