Steinberg Cubase 10 – many new features

Posted on: Wednesday 21st of November 2018

The latest iterations of Steinberg’s music production software, Cubase Pro 10, Cubase Artist 10, and Cubase Elements 10, combine a vast range of improved audio and MIDI tools for composing, recording, editing and mixing music. Cubase Artist 10 is a slimmer edition, offering the same core technologies as Cubase Pro alongside many dedicated production tools. Instantly accessible, Cubase Elements 10 is the first step into the world of music production with Cubase.

“This version is a milestone in the innovational history of Cubase. With nearly 30 years to look back on, Cubase Pro 10 encompasses everything required from a DAW — no matter who you are, no matter what your background, no matter what your musical experience,” comments Matthias Quellmann, senior marketing manager for Cubase.

Cubase Pro 10 exclusives

Available to Cubase Pro 10, VariAudio 3 is the perfect and eminently powerful pitch correction tool, introducing many enhancements for editing micro pitch levels and adjusting formant shifts. Another novelty is MixConsole Snapshots for saving and recalling a current mix within the mixer, or for creating and comparing alternate mixes of a project. Cubase Pro 10 also introduces Audio Alignment, a great new feature that allows users to align stacked recordings extremely fast so that vocal and other tracks are in complete sync. REVerence, the convolution reverb in Cubase Pro, includes now 20 new impulse responses, covering a range of vintage reverbs. Smaller feature additions and enhancements include AAF import/ export for exchanging data with different systems, improved editing to picture, and the Steinberg Virtual Reality production suite that offers tools for producing VR content.

Additions to Pro and Artist

Both the Pro and Artist editions of Cubase 10 now include Distroyer, an effects processors that infuses asymmetric distortion. Side-chaining has also been touched on: new to both Pro and Artist is the simplified side-chain setup that completes the signal routing with only a few clicks. Since both editions feature the unique Note Expression capability, the next step now was to offer MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) support for multidimensional controllers.

Family features for Pro, Artist and Elements

In all editions of version 10, the Channel Strip has undergone significant changes, featuring new metering elements in each module, providing immediate visual feedback and further facilitating the mixing process. Groove Agents SE 5, one of many instruments within Cubase, boasts many enhancements to its user interface and comes with an abundance of new acoustic and electronic drum content. The audio engine has also been refined, now supporting 32-bit integer and 64-bit floating-point audio for recording, importing/exporting, and converting. Plug-ins have been redesigned and can now be dragged from the Media Rack and dropped directly into the project, creating an instrument track automatically, while the user interface supports HiDPI for high-resolution displays.

The additional content in Cubase 10 rounds out the extensive feature list: 5 GB of sounds and loops cover various genres, produced by renowned artists the likes of Florian Meindl, Rawtekk, Beat Butcha and many more.

Quellmann continues: “The audio engine in Cubase delivers pristine, unprecedented, ‘unheard-of’ quality: you’ll never hear the DAW, you won’t perceive unexpected coloring to your recordings, you’ll forget it’s even there — the sound quality is literally unheard of. The editing and production tools are amazing, providing a smooth, firm foundation for your creative input. The new aesthetics of the user interface ensures focused and expedited usability, while the production-grade content included within Cubase is not only fun to use but offers a great starting point to creating any style of music.

“With all the effort that we have put into this major iteration and considering the positive feedback from professional recording engineers and producers throughout its development, I assure that Cubase 10 pushes the envelope beyond the many expectations.”
