Ideal for any musician on a budget, Steinberg Cubase Artist 7 music-production software (Mac/Windows) puts a slew of recording, composing, editing, and mixing tools, plus VST instruments and effects, into a user-friendly interface that's as easy to use as it is powerful. A streamlined, "lite" version of Steinberg's flagship software, Cubase Artist is perfect for the home studio.

Its MixConsole mixer makes sure that all your mixing tools are front and center, console-style, when you get to work on a mix, and a fully loaded channel strip gives you instant access to wealth of studio-quality EQ and dynamics processors. What's more, the advanced VariAudio and Chord Track features guide you through the process of creating complex chord progressions and harmonies so your MIDI and audio tracks are always harmonically correct. As the scaled down version of Steinberg's flagship DAW, Cubase Artist 7 offers a range of proven features to help you create professional-sounding tracks, plus a huge collection of inspiring instruments and effects to get you started right out of the box.

Exceptionally User-Friendly

Cubase Artist 7 provides both the digital workspace and the essential tools you need to produce high-quality music. Record and mix up to 64 audio and 128 MIDI tracks, with the 192 kHz/32-bit Steinberg audio engine with 5.1 surround, flexible routing, and full automatic delay compensation. You can do all your composing, editing, and mixing in the box with real-time time-stretching and pitch-shifting, multitrack editing and quantizing, take comping, and automation tools.

Basic music notation, score editing, and score printing enable you to turn your tracks into ready-to-share sheet music, so you can accomplish all your music creation tasks without ever having to leave Cubase.

Fully Stocked DAW Kitchen

So that you can open up Cubase and start making music right away, the music-production 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 collection of over 2,400 sounds, as well as 46 audio effect plug-ins and 18 MIDI VST effect processors, including EQs and dynamics, a virtual guitar tone suite, modulation effects, and real-time pitch correction. Cubase Artist 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 works hand in hand with Chord Track to help you edit notes, MIDI-style, and quickly voice complicated harmonies and modulations that are music major approved. You don't need to be a theory wizard to get proper voice leading -- just turn to Cubase's chord guides and let them do the work for you.

Personalized Mixing Experience

Adjusting seamlessly to notebook screens and large-scale displays, the MixConsole is totally customizable in appearance. Tailor your mixer to your workspace -- with the MixConsole, you decide what channels are displayed on the mixer and in which order your channels appear.

Flexibility is the name of the game with the MixConsole, as this digital mixer provides a very flexible channel layout -- you decide what channels are displayed on the mixer and in which order your channels appear -- plus flexible routing, 12 dB boost and dedicated processing power per channel, and customizable controls and automation tools.

Work the Way You Want

If you do a lot of mixing, you'll appreciate that the MixConsole offers A/B comparison and global bypass for all audio effects, a plug-in search function, and drag-and-drop support throughout. Dynamic sends and inserts provide a streamlined overview, and a high-quality meter bridge makes it easy to keep track of your signals. MixConsole is also compatible with screen reader software and can be operated using only the computer keyboard.

Channel Strip

The MixConsole's integrated channel strip offers a number of EQ and dynamics processors, with 150 channel strip presets and 150 factory presets created by top producer Allen Morgan (Taylor Swift, Nine Inch Nails, and more). Get ready for radio-ready production.

The DAW's updated Channel Settings window gives you instant access to all channel parameters, including input metering, routing assignments, the channel strip with EQ and dynamics modules, and cue sends to create individual cue mixes. The display follows you automatically wherever you are and updates each time you adjust controls on a different channel -- gone are the days of scrolling.

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, WK-Audio's ID, Yamaha DM2000, 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.

Stellar Mixing

The MixConsole excels not only in terms of usability, look and feel, but also sounds better than anything before it. Featuring full-screen mode, total scalability and quick in-place access to the parameters most relevant to the task, MixConsole adjusts seamlessly to notebook screens and large-scale displays.

With its extremely flexible channel layout, 12 dB boost and dedicated processing power per channel, an exceptional feel to the controls and comprehensive online and offline automation tools, MixConsole provides uncompromising audio quality and routing flexibility from the outset, with plenty of pristine headroom and a fundamentally transparent sonic signature.

Workflows for professionals

Dedicated to their diehard users, Cubase 7 brings extraordinary workflow improvements to the table, delivering a genuine benefit to professionals working regularly with the mixer. Highlights include A/B comparison and global bypass for all audio effects, a plug-in search function as well as drag-and-drop support throughout.

Plus, dynamic sends and inserts provide a streamlined overview, whereas the professional meter bridge lets you keep track of your signals. Aiming on providing barrier-free accessibility to the blind and visually impaired, MixConsole is compatible with screen reader software and can be operated using only the computer keyboard.

The Cubase Channel Strip...

The channel strip in Cubase 7 offers that epic pro-console sound that lets you turn your songs into a hard-hitting, radio-ready production. Best of all, Allen Morgan, whose producing credits include Taylor Swift, Nine Inch Nails and many more crafted 150 channel strip presets, 150 track presets plus many FX chain presets.

... and Channel Central

The redesigned Channel Settings window gives you lightning quick access to all channel parameters, including input metering, routing assignments, the channel strip with premier equalization and dynamics modules and essential aux as well as cue sends to create individual cue mixes. There's no need for scrolling -- the display follows you automatically wherever you are and updates each time you adjust controls on a different channel.

Monitor your audio's loudness

In past years the loudness level has increased dramatically, especially in TV advertising. To align loudness levels easily and maintain dynamics without further increasing the peak level and compression rate, Cubase 7 comes 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.

Remote control this

You asked for it and Cubase 7 delivers. Supporting many hardware remote controllers right out of the box, the Remote Control Editor lets you visually customize the parameter layout of individual effects and instruments on your control surface. It's as simple as it sounds -- just select a hardware knob or button and chose which parameter to control and there you go! Various modes for rotaries and knobs plus the Learn mode make it even easier to assign parameters. Simply reassign the cutoff parameter of your favorite filter effect or synth to whatever rotary you want.

Remote Control Editor supports Avid System 5 MC, Avid Artist Series, Mackie Control, Steinberg Houston, WK-Audio's ID, Yamaha DM2000 and more right out of the box.

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great update to cubase"
Overall: I bought this to get upgrade to 7.5 and it was worth it. Cubase new groove agent alone is good for the upgrade. I think it still has a few bugs but overall its great. I use this and Studio One software.

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
