What’s new in Cubase Pro 12

A wide range of new features and workflow enhancements are included within Cubase Pro 12 such as deeper integration for MIDI controllers, as well new function and key commands to speed up the editing process. One of the most groundbreaking new features is the ability to instantly convert audio to MIDI chords by simply dragging your selected audio onto the Chord Track within Cubase. This tool is great for sampling, remixing and demoing ideas quickly and efficiently. The new ‘FX Modulator’ is perfect for experimenting with sounds and creating new tones from existing sounds via multi-effect modulation.

A new flexible limiter is included in the form of ‘Raiser’. Utilising cutting-edge dynamic processing, Raiser is the perfect ‘final touch’ for your signal chain. Customise your workflow to cater for your personal working style thanks to Cubase Pro’s powerful logical function which allows you to customise the way you work; helping to find your process.

Verve is a new virtual instrument – a felt piano that delivers unparalleled warmth and beauty, perfect for evoking emotion and creating melancholic soundscapes. Support for Dolby Atmos has also been included, allowing you to produce immersive music, completely within Cubase Pro. Designed for professionals, Cubase Pro 12 has also included several new features for the advanced post-production system – Nuendo.

New Scale Assistant in VariAudio for easy pitch editing

The powerful VariAudio has been revamped with the brand-new ‘Scale Assistant’ combining two powerful tools to make pitch editing easier than ever before. VariAudio provides you with MIDI-style note editing of monophonic tracks. This is great for unparalleled manipulation of both bass and vocals. It provides you with the means to adjust pitch, correct time, as well as manipulation the intonation of notes. With the new ‘Scale Assistant’ you can now be guided with your pitch editing decisions, making the process an absolute breeze! A firm favourite within the Cubase community, you'll be able to use this plugin to instantly re-create that iconic auto-tune effect that's synonymous with pop music, as well as produce perfect artificial harmonies.

Award-winning 64-bit digital engine

Cubase Pro 12 features their own custom award-winning, double-precision 64-bit floating-point Steinberg audio engine. This provides you with resolutions up to 192 kHz, as well as 5.1 surround sound possibilities, versatile routing and automatic delay compensation. There's a good reason why some of the world's leading producers and musicians choose Cubase to capture their fleeting moments of inspiration.

Four powerful virtual instruments and 3,000 instrument sounds

Achieving great tones with virtual instruments has never been so easy. Cubase Pro 12 boasts four of the finest VSTs available on the market. This includes HALion Sonic SE 3, Groove Agent SE 5, Padshop 2 and Retrologue 2. Pro also features over 3,000 instrument sounds, providing you with a comprehensive sonic palette so you can create anything you can imagine!

Pro-grade effect suite with over 90 audio/MIDI VST processors

Cubase Pro 12 comes with 90+ professional-grade MIDI and VST effect processors so you can shape and sculpt your sound as you please. These plugins are as good as it gets, providing you with a comprehensive range of compressors, equalizers, reverbs and delays to ensure you hit the ground running.

Match recording with audio alignment

Audio Alignment eliminates the tedious process of manually cutting and matching vocals. It allows you to sync multiple stacked vocal recordings, matching them automatically. It works by incorporating a reference track and adjusting the multiple tracks to the reference with perfecting timing.

All under one roof

The MixConsole will streamline and rejuvenate your workflow by providing you with all the necessary tools under one roof. You'll be able to take advantage of the integrated channel strip to sculpt the sound of each instrument with surgical precision. Make the most of the VCA faders to apply global volume rides, without having to waste time making minor adjustments to each fader. The handy loudness display allows you to keep an eye on the volume of your mix at all times, ensuring you don't go into the red! It doesn't get much easier than this.

Say goodbye to the dongle!
