Cubase 5 from Steinberg is a native music production system that, like its past incarnations, combines full-featured audio and MIDI recording and editing, virtual instruments and powerful audio mixing, with the added flexibility of loop- and pattern-based arranging and mixing. This latest version provides added focus on five key elements of music production.
LoopMash, a virtual instrument, and Beat Designer, a beat construction plug-in, offer innovative ways for creating and working with loops and beats. In the pitch correction arena, VariAudio offers completely integrated vocal editing and pitch alteration of individual notes in monophonic vocal recordings. And to place all these elements within the mix, Cubase 5 includes REVerence, a VST3-based convolution reverb processor.
VST Expression is a new way of working with multiple instrument articulations, such as huge orchestra libraries, and introduces an editing concept that is not only user-customizable but is also fully integrated with the Key and Score Editors. Additional enhancements boost productivity and performance, allowing the composer to more easily achieve their vision, whether for audio and music production, or as part of a video or film project.
