Just when you think that audio production software has peaked you can always trust Steinberg to lift the bar even further. The new Steinberg Cubase 10.5 Digital audio software series is here complete with a more streamlined workflow but with additional production power so that you can get right to the heart of your music.
What's new in 10.5?
As with previous Cubase releases, you have three flavours to choose from, Professional, Artist and Elements. Each to suit your needs and budget. What is new across all three versions though is:
- Streamlined contextual menus for events for a cleaner workflow
- Video Export Render, export video as MP4 with H.264 compression, render all or portions of your video
- MultiTap Delay, Up to eight taps per delay loop can conveniently be created and edited
- Padshop 2, Steinberg’s highly acclaimed granular synthesizer Padshop 2 comes with great improvements and even more creative tools
- Retrospective MIDI Record, Cubase tracks your MIDI input — even when you are not recording — and brings back your chords and melodies as a stacked cycle
Cubase 10.5 also comes with a plethora of inspiring audio content just waiting for you to get your hands on. In total, 5 gigabytes of sounds from acclaimed audio producers cover a range of genres including techno, soul, hip-hop, experimental ambience and movie soundtrack. Of course, all of your own audio content and 64-bit plug-ins can be used with Cubase 10.5 and the process of that has also been upgraded thanks to the ability to drag and drop external plug-ins.
What does the artist version get me?
The artist edition is aimed at the musicians and songwriters that need powerful tools but without some of the complexity that the professional package involves. Additionally, should you wish to upgrade, Steinberg offers a discounted upgrade path.
