Powerful Music-Production Tools -- In the Box!

Putting professional tools, VST instruments, and effects at your fingertips, Steinberg Cubase 7 music-production software (Mac/Windows) is your one-stop DAW for recording, composing, editing, and mixing music. With Cubase 7.5, it's easy to create first-class tracks in a customizable layout and workflow that just makes sense. Unlimited audio, instrument, and MIDI tracks allow you to record and compose for all members of the band, and Steinberg's 32-bit floating-point audio engine provides high-quality audio at up to 192 kHz.

The MixConsole mixer puts high-end dynamics processors and EQ into every channel strip, so that all your mixing tools are front and center, console-style, when you get to work on a mix. The composer or songwriter in you will like Cubase 7's Chord Track feature, which guides you through chord progressions so your MIDI and audio tracks are always harmonically correct. The addition of MixConsole and Chord Track to Cubase's already packed set of virtual instruments, sounds, and effect processors makes Cubase 7 a phenomenal workhorse DAW capable of tackling any music production task.

Fully Stocked DAW Kitchen

Designed to be exceptionally user friendly, Cubase 7 provides both the digital workspace and the must-have "ingredients" you need to produce high-quality music. Compose and record with as many audio, instrument, and MIDI tracks as you like, with the DAW's 32-bit floating-point Steinberg audio engine, which boasts up to 192 kHz resolution, 5.1 surround mixing, flexible routing, and full automatic delay compensation. You can do all your composing, editing, and mixing in the box with essentials such as multitrack editing and quantizing, take comping, and automation tools.

So that you can open up Cubase and start making music right away, the software comes packed with eight useful virtual instruments -- including HALion Sonic SE workstation (with 300 different instrument sounds), the Padshop granular synth, Retrologue virtual analog synth, LoopMash 2, and Groove Agent ONE drum machine (with drum samples and corresponding MIDI loops) -- for creating sounds, beats, effects, and more.

Steinberg Cubase 7 also features a large collection of about 2,800 sounds, as well as 66 audio and 18 MIDI VST effect processors, including VST Amp Rack guitar tone suite, REVerence convolution reverb, and Voxengo CurveEQ. Cubase 7 software has all the bases covered if you just want to plug and play.

Get Perfectly Voiced Harmonies, Fast

Once you have your recorded tracks, you can get into the nitty gritty of it all and edit notes with surgical precision using the VariAudio feature. VariAudio, which works hand in hand with Chord Track, allows for MIDI-style note editing of monophonic audio tracks and automatic voicing harmonization and auto-tuning effect.

As your personal composing and arranging assistant, Cubase 7 intelligently analyzes your music's harmonic structure and provides chord and scale information to both MIDI and audio tracks that have been processed with VariAudio. The chord and scale details automatically follow any harmonic adjustments in Chord Track, a dedicated chord guide that you will find within Cubase's Project window. Together, Chord Track and VariAudio will lead you through the composition process so you can quickly create complex harmonies and modulations that are music major approved. If you need further assistance, turn to the software's helpful Chord Assistant for bridging chords and generating harmonic chord progressions.

Cubase's tools will ensure that your music sounds appropriate for any style or instrumentation. Hermode tuning technology, for example, uses dynamic retuning to fix the flaws typical of traditional well-tempered scales.

A Mixer That's Made for You

Ready to mix? One of the nice things about Cubase 7's MixConsole is that its appearance is totally tailorable to your workspace. With the MixConsole, you decide what channels are displayed on the mixer and in which order your channels appear. You also decide how the mixer will look on your computer -- in full-screen mode, scaled down or up to adjust to small-screened laptop or large display, and so forth -- so your mixing workspace has a custom feel that's free of digital clutter.

Customizable track icons perpetuate the MixConsole's personalized feel, while useful tools such as Control Link and Quick Link make it easy to interlink channels and parameters. Other handy mixing features include drag-and-drop channel settings, A/B comparison, global bypass on effects, plug-in search, integrated control room functionality, and View Sets for instant recall of EQ, dynamics, sends, and inserts.

Loaded with EQ and Dynamics Processors

Cubase 7's channel strip conveniently offers a number of built-ins, such as high- and low-pass filters, noise gate, the four-band StudioEQ, three compressors, a spectrum analyzer, tube/tape saturation, a brickwall limiter, maximizer, and 150 factory presets created by top producer Allen Morgan.

The updated Channel Settings window provides at-a-glance access to all channel parameters, such as input metering and routing assignments. Also available in that window, the Remote Control Editor gives you straightforward mapping of plug-in parameters to external controllers, with support for Mackie Control, Avid Artist Series, and other popular controllers.

Walk the Fine Line Between Loud and Too Loud

Keep your levels in check with an integrated loudness meter that is fully compatible with the EBU R128 loudness standard. Precise measuring of integrated, momentary and short-term loudness enables you to keep track of your audio's loudness and deliver in true EBU-compliant formats. Get the volume just right without compromising your music.

Product Description

With an array of Virtual Studio Technology (VST) instruments and effects plus production tools employed by producers around the world, Steinberg Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7 now include the MixConsole mixer, the recently developed channel strip, Chord Track, significant workflow improvements and integration, original content, and much more.

"This time around we focused in on one of the primary features in Cubase: the mixing. The result is the MixConsole, with never-before-seen transparency, fidelity, and functionality. Thanks to the built-in channel strip modules and their excellent-sounding EQ and dynamics, the days are finally over when we opened five plug-in windows per track to get the mix going. We also took care of many details that'll make a big difference in time-critical situations, such as the Remote Control Editor, the redesigned Channel Settings window and the track, channel and plug-in finder. Version 7 is our commitment to the professional community and elevates Cubase to the top of every producer's wish list," said Helge Vogt, product marketing lead at Steinberg.

MixConsole

The MixConsole features full-screen mode and scalability for allowing seamless adjustment to small and large-scale displays alike. With Channel Zones, users are able to specify which channels and in which order they are to be displayed on the mixer, while View Sets offers immediate recall of EQ, dynamics, sends and inserts. Other advantages of the MixConsole include customizable track icons as well as Control Link and Quick Link for interlinking channels and parameters. Channel settings drag and drop, A/B comparison, global bypass on effects, plug-in search and integrated control room functionality add to the comprehensive list of mixing features. Second in line is the recently developed channel strip with high and low-pass filters, noise gate, the four-band StudioEQ, three compressors, a spectrum analyzer, tube/tape saturation, a brickwall limiter, maximizer plus 150 factory presets, created by US producer Allen Morgan. Furthermore, the Channel Settings window is redesigned to provide easy access to all channel parameters, such as input metering and routing assignments, alongside the recently introduced Remote Control Editor for easy mapping of plug-in parameters to external controllers, supporting Mackie Control, Avid Artist Series and many others. Also available in Cubase 7 are Voxengo's studio-grade 64-band spline CurveEQ, EBU R128 standard compliant loudness metering and the current version of MixConvert for individual downmixes in unmatched quality.

Chord Track

The second assembly of musical features includes Chord Track, a dedicated track within the Project window. Cubase identifies the music's harmony structure and provides chord and scale information to both MIDI and audio tracks that have been processed with VariAudio, and these in return automatically follow any harmonic adjustments in Chord Track. VariAudio is exclusively available in Cubase and has been enhanced to work seamlessly with Chord Track, allowing multiple-part editing within a single editor and harmonizing of lead vocals in choral arrangements. Another amazing feature exclusive to Cubase 7 is Chord Assistant for bridging chords and generating harmonic chord progressions. Implemented in both Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7, the Hermode tuning technology adjusts flaws of traditional well-tempered scales through dynamic retuning. Cubase also meets all demands for 'in the box' content: next to the thousands of sounds already available, Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7 continue to stock up on samples, loops and presets: the Hybrid Expansion for HALion Sonic SE boasts 300 different instrument sounds, while drum samples and corresponding MIDI loops expand the Groove Agent ONE and Beat Designer library. More than 2,000 additional MIDI loops round out the extensive spectrum of sounds.

The final feature set delivers functional enhancements that boost the performance in various ways. ASIO-Guard is implemented into the Steinberg Audio Engine to improve stability and prevent data dropouts. Included for troubleshooting and diagnostics is the additional safe- start mode to disable user preferences temporarily. With the keyword-oriented search engine, individual tracks and channels can now be quickly found in large projects. MemZap stores positions and zoom factors within the project at any particular time, while the Steinberg Hub appears on start up, comprising an enhanced Project Assistant plus additional information services, such as news and a regularly updated list of video tutorials. Another highlight exclusively available to Cubase 7 is the VST Connect SE collaboration software, with talkback and chat functionality as well as real-time video and audio streaming over the Internet.

"Cubase 7 is bound to remain the widely acclaimed production software for recording, editing, mixing and producing music to the highest standards. With this major release, we've introduced different mixing and composition tools, improved on VariAudio, included Voxengo's CurveEQ and many other really useful and important features to Cubase," remarked Cubase product marketing manager Carlos Mendoza Rohde on its additions.

Cubase 7 has been tested on professional HP Z workstations for maximum reliability and certified performance.
