New! VST Transit

A unique new feature is the revolutionary VST Transit, which all you to collaborate directly on cloud-based projects, with the ability to store and recall all your Cubase preferences from any computer - perfect for globe-trotting artists and those who're collaborating with fellow musicians from around the world.

Pushing things forward

Getting creative needn't be time consuming thanks to the intuitive MIDI editing Key and Drum Editors. As before you can insert a note/beat, adjust length, position or pitch with minimum effort. In-place rendering can be executed to enable easier bouncing of MIDI and audio parts. Advanced features include using Combine VCA fader automation, which merges the automation curve of a VCA fader with the automation curve of a controlled fader or fader groups, just a glimpse into the level of control this powerful system gives you.

The Track List and Inspector have been redesigned, whilst your plug-ins can be easily arranged using the new plug-in manager with regard to type of effect, instrument, or however you choose. Improved windows handling makes navigation between options easier, which contributes to the smooth and seamless workflow.

The MixConsole has also witnessed feature additions, and the ability to adapt it to suit your individual mixing approach makes it a joy to work with. As well as this, the Profile Manager enables you to store and recall program settings and user preferences, including keyboard shortcuts, colour sets and much, much more. The MediaBay project rack allows navigation of content through accessible icons and images for VST instruments, libraries, content packs and preset categories for rapid visual guides.

Beauty in the detail

Retrologue 2 has taken a giant leap forward whilst retaining its warm analogue character. With an additional third oscillator, new polyphonic LFOs and added envelope, the synth section is given a welcome boost. The Chord Pads composition tool allows lushly textured chord structures and patterns to be gracefully constructed in seconds, with a new "Sections" play mode that offers full and intuitive control over the processing of arpeggiated notes.

Cubase Artist 8.5 is now equipped with zPlanes élastique v3 algorithm, which expands the time-stretching, transient processing and AudioWarp functions with significantly greater stretch abilities than before.

Simply put, the Steinberg Cubase 8.5 Artist Retail Edition Digital Audio Workstation further removes any obstacles to your music creation, whilst offering cloud-based production and collaboration with artists all over the world.
