- Enhanced transient and tempo detection for easier, glitch-free drum editing and more musical detection
- Phase-accurate audio quantization and drum replacement. (Actually, a key point here – without phase accuracy, you can create some nasty artifacts quantizing audio.)
- Track edit groups turn comps quickly into tracks. That we’ve seen before, but Cubase does have a nice feature for editing those groups simultaneously.
- A built-in set of guitar effects called VST Amp Rack.
- 64-bit support on both Mac and Windows.
- New time-stretching algorithms.
The only limitation is your imagination. Well, that and you do need a VST-compatible instrument. But remember, we invented VST, so we’ve got you covered.
Cubase 6 and Cubase Artist 6 offer enhanced workflow features within the Project window. The newly introduced Track Edit Groups option** refines the work with multitrack recordings, allowing related events on multiple tracks to be grouped and edited simultaneously, while the new Lane Track offers convenient multitake comping for selecting and consolidating audio parts to form the perfect take. The redesigned transient and automatic tempo detection, phase-accurate audio quantization and drum replacement functions incorporated in Cubase 6 help to smooth out any glitches in live-recorded drum tracks.
The Key Editor has further been enhanced with an Inspector panel and the groundbreaking Note Expression feature for creating and editing multiple controller values on a single-note level. Also included is the new Dynamics Lane, which allows real-time listening of dynamic changes while automatically in sync with dynamic notations from the Score Editor

Brief tutorial from Steinberg on track arrangements
Let’s say you have prepared a number of audio files that form the base of a typical pop song, with introduction, verse, chorus and bridge. Now you want to arrange these files. The first step is to create an Arranger track. On the Arranger track, you define specific sections of the project by creating arranger events.
This is absolutely awesome, computerized version of an old classic singer song writer

Steinberg has released version 5.5 of Cubase / Cubase Studio, a free update of its music production systems featuring new mixing features, new video engine, instrument updates, workflow improvements and optimized performance for multi-core processors.
The 5.5 update ensures an improved low-latency performance on systems with four or more CPU cores, while the included version increments of two Cubase 5 features, LoopMash and the REVerence convolution reverb, reduce CPU usage considerably. The native x64 version of Cubase and Cubase Studio features an enhanced VST Bridge to improve compatibility with the majority of bridged 32-bit VST2.4 plug-ins within a native 64-bit production environment.
Enhancements for both mixing and video work have been realized with additional automation functionality in the automation panel as well as expanding the Quick Control system to Group, FX, Input and Output channels. An entirely new video engine offers full HD support in Cubase 5.5 as well as scalable performance and video playback capability via FireWire for the PC platform.
Version 5.5 also introduces enhancements to the range of onboard beat production, witnessing refinements in hitpoint detection within the Sample Editor, the introduction of a local timeline for the AudioWarp definition mode plus extended Export/Import functionality for Groove Agent ONE including 19 exclusive new drum kits made up of over 800 finest vintage drum machine samples.
To further speed up workflow in the Cubase environment, the MediaBay interface has been redesigned to provide improved usability, with an integrated virtual keyboard and memo recorder. On top of the many small enhancements, the Channel Batch Export tool has been improved, and the Infoline and the toolbars of all editors have been consolidated for improved legibility and faster access.
Cubase 5.5 complements Cubase 5 and Cubase Studio 5 to the fullest, delivering performance optimization, additional features and useful enhancements throughout.
The 5.5 update is now available to download from the Steinberg website at www.steinberg.net.
The R24 digital multitrack recorder adds a sampler/drum machine, eight additional recording tracks and six channels of phantom power to the company’s R16. The R24 offers 24-track playback and 8-track simultaneous recording, an audio interface, a control surface and a drum pad sampler.
The R24’s new sampler function comprises 24 built-in voices that can be triggered using eight pads and three bank keys to assign sounds to each track and create loops. Also, the unit’s drum machine and its 400 rhythm patterns can be used to create original backing beats or output a metronome for tempo control. As a bonus feature, exclusive loops by Grammy Award–winner Peter Erskine are included.
The R24 records on SD memory cards and supports cards up to 32 GB for more than 100 track hours of recording. More than 100 built-in studio and mastering effects can be used to enhance recordings.
In addition, the R24’s USB audio interface allows users to record tracks to any Mac or PC and use the system’s control surface capabilities to manage the functions of most DAW software programs, most notably the included Cubase LE 5.
Cubase 5.5 and Cubase Studio 5.5 are value updates including many smaller and bigger enhancements to the application as well as introducing several great new features that come absolutely free for all registered Cubase 5 and Cubase Studio 5 users.
The Cubase audio engine has been tweaked for an even better low-latency performance on systems with four or more CPU cores. Updated versions of LoopMash* and REVerence* reduce CPU demand for these plug-ins. The native x64 version of Cubase 5.5 now features an improved VST Bridge that boasts higher performance and dramatically enhanced compatibility with the majority of bridged 32-bit VST2.4 plug-ins.
More mixing and video
The automation panel has been given a smart facelift, and now sports additional automation functionality such as the new Fill modes. For even more convenient access to all required track, mixing and plug-in parameters, the Quick Control system has been expanded to Group, FX, Input and Output channels, while the setup of VST Connections has been simplified. A new Open GL accelerated video engine with full HD support*, scalable performance and the ability to play out videos via FireWire on Windows round out this much
The Cubase Sample Editor has witnessed significant refinements when it comes to reworking with beat-laden loops, including a new sensitive hitpoint-detection algorithm and the introduction of a local timeline for the AudioWarp definition mode. Groove Agent ONE boasts extended Export/Import functionality, visual adjusting of sample start- and end point and 19 brand-new and exclusive drum kits made up of over 800 finest vintage drum machine samples. LoopMash* has been updated with track-dedicated level meters and volume controls plus a new global similarity threshold slider for controlling the overall density of a loop construct.
The MediaBay interface has been redesigned to provide improved usability besides simply looking pretty neat. It now also comes with an integrated virtual keyboard and memo recorder to quickly record preview phrases. The Channel Batch Export provides user-definable file naming options and includes a non-modal audio export window which remains open for adjusting settings whenever required. Both the Infoline and the toolbars have been cleaned up and consolidated for improved legibility and faster access. The scrubbing function features a much smoother and acoustically accurate feedback for precision editing.
