Award-Winning Music Production Software

Cubase has long been a keystone in the music production world. It is revered for its innovative sequencing, editing and mixing abilities. Previous versions have gained Steinberg a wide range of awards and accolades, further cementing its reputation as one of the most versatile and powerful DAWs on the market.

Cubase 10.5 provides a variety of new enhancements, effects and virtual instruments; expanding its ever-growing arsenal of audio tools. A range of new tools are included with the Artist version including: LatencyMonitor, Groove Agent SE 5, Distroyer and MPE support.

The highly intuitive interface allows you to compose, record, edit and mix songs with ease. You can record instruments, vocals, ensembles or soloists and produce the perfect take every time.

Revised Channel Strip

One of the most prominent new features is the redesigned Channel Strip. The channel strip is the most important element when it comes to mixing and editing audio. The new and improved design is more ergonomic, providing a quicker workflow. It also extends the Channel Strip’s functionality, providing new metering elements and direct visual feedback of each module.

For instance, you can view the VU meter for certain plugins, as well as the frequency range of an EQ module. This can greatly aid in mixing, allowing you to see your changes and module settings at a glance. It also includes controls from the module on the channel strip, allowing you to make quick and easy changes without having to pull up the full plugin/module.

Latency Monitor

A handy tool for latency compensation. Latency Monitor allows you to monitor and fix latency issues with ease. Between monitoring and recording, latency can be a make or break issue, specially for home users. The Latency Monitor section gives you full control over your latency, even providing the means to adjust individual latency of each plugin for optimal flexibility.

New Distroyer Plugin and Improved Side-Chaining

A prominent new plugin included with Cubase Artist 10.5 is the Distroyer. The Distroyer is the perfect tool and mangling and destroying audio. It can add everything from subtle analog warmth, to aggressive and in-your-face distortion. It is perfect for adding texture, body and harmonics to any sounds source. It is also perfect for implementing non-linear distortion within effects chains.

Side-chaining has also been made easier. Side-chaining is perfect for create space between kicks and bass, as well as creating a pumping effect between instruments. Side-chaining is one of most popular mixing technique in music production. The new and simplified side-chain allows you to create routes with a few clicks. You can also activate side-chaining in your FX plug-in chain, by selecting the source from the list for quick and easy changes.
