Cubase Artist 7 from Steinberg is an audio and MIDI recording/editing digital audio workstation that offers a range of proven editing and sequencing tools. Ideal for solo artists, bands, and project studio owners, the software sports an easy-to-use interface, excellent performance and multiple instruments and effects.

For the songwriter, the software offers a full complement of creative tools that are both easy to use and musical. For bands recording themselves, the integrated mixing desk combines flexibility with channel strip modules for pro-console sound. For electronic music producers, a large arsenal of synthesizers and creative effects allows for experimental sound design by using both analog and next-generation granular synthesizers over intuitive beat creation.

For vocal recordings Cubase includes a complete toolset for correction and enhancement. For creating hip hop, rap or techno music, the software includes an MPC-style drum sampler and an intuitive step sequencer along with beat mangling tools. And for the guitarist, VST Amp Rack delivers rock-solid tones for any guitar tracks while offering multiple amps, classic stomp box effects, speaker cabinets and microphone models. The plug-in also includes signature presets crafted by world-class guitarists.

The software is the perfect choice for newcomers and seasoned musicians alike, with the user only needing to supply a computer, an I/O interface and monitoring to have access to virtually every tool possible for creating professional audio.

Key Editor

  • Entering, cutting, moving and transposing individual notes or whole chords, editing any of the hundreds of MIDI parameters available or reworking even the most subtle nuances of a MIDI performance are just some of the tasks for which the Key Editor has been developed and refined
  • The Inspector provides smooth and intuitive access to the most important MIDI tools and functions, including Expression Maps, Note Expression, Quantize, Transpose, Length and many more in one central spot
  • Note Expression integration allows for assigning, creating and editing multiple controller values directly on the single note level in the Key Editor

  • The VST Connections window allows the user to not only setup custom I/O setups and customize port names but also switch between different I/O setups on the fly

Edit

Sample Editor
  • Allows almost limitless creative freedom while editing audio
  • A full editing toolset offers a huge range of functions that cover common editing tasks right down to the sample level

  • Detect single hits, rolls and ghost notes faster and more accurately

Straightforward Drum Replacement
  • With the Hitpoint-to-MIDI function, it is very easy to replace, or double live-recorded drum sounds
  • When the transients have been detected, a single click creates a MIDI track with a MIDI note for each drum hit
  • From here, it's only a matter of choosing which sampler or synthesizer to use

Warp Quantizing
  • Warp-quantize multiple audio tracks at once using the Quantize panel
  • By creating warp markers straight from hit points, both single audio loops as well as the entire arrangement can be non-destructively quantized with a single mouse click, just like MIDI parts
  • Because the audio events are warped instead of sliced, they automatically follow any tempo or pitch changes of your project while remaining uncluttered for easy arrangements

Ultra-Fast Take Comping
  • Build the perfect take - when recording several takes, Cubase instantly creates a Lane Track for each take
  • From here, simply swipe across the best parts and Cubase automatically creates a master take that contains all the selected parts
  • Comp tool offers click-and-drag features for immediate results
