Whether you’re in the studio or in the rehearsal room, Cubase Pro 8.5 is the DAW of choice for composing, recording and producing your songs.

This comprehensive update makes the Cubase experience even more direct and accessible, incorporating enhancements developed at the request of the many professional Cubase users worldwide. Cubase Pro 8.5 not only offers a sleeker workflow and added creative tools but also an innovative cloud-based collaboration system embedded in Cubase: VST Transit.

Its integrated MixConsole combines utmost flexibility with top-end channel strip modules for a luxurious pro-console sound and features. Thanks to the Control Room section you can provide each of your band members with an individual cue mix. And once the recording session is over, simply select the best parts and conjure the perfect take within seconds.

For film composers
From Hollywood blockbusters to popular TV series — Cubase is the favorite DAW of many of today’s most successful composers. With a separate video track, a scalable video window and a score editor featuring 100+ notation symbols, there’s everything on board to create professional scores. And thanks to Steinberg’s pioneering VST Expression technology you can create breathtakingly natural orchestral scores with full expression control on single-note level.

Cubase includes a complete toolset for the correction and enhancement of vocal recordings. Adjust the pitch and timing of monophonic audio signals or to harmonize your lead vocals in beautifully composed choral arrangements is accomplished in a few seconds. For more convenience, you can even edit voices from multiple tracks in one single editor. To make the most out of your vocal recordings, simply add some of the quality reverb, modulation and dynamics effects.

Guitarists and Bassists
VST Amp Rack and VST Bass Amp deliver an incredible level of quality tone for your guitar and bass tracks. Designed as customizable rack effects, this two-part virtual guitar and bass tone suite offers multiple amps, classic stomp box effects, speaker cabinets and microphone models to choose from. This plug-in suite includes signature presets crafted by world-class musicians from bands such as Meshuggah, Emperor and Accept to help you quickly dial in great guitar or bass sounds in next to no time.

Electronic music producers
With an immense arsenal of great synths and creative effects, Cubase offers an indispensable toolset for dance music producers and sound designers. From sumptuously realistic recreations of analog synth technology to a next-generation granular synths and intuitive beat creation and mangling tools, Cubase offers everything needed to create expressive dance and electronic music. Additional features such as the advanced Drum, Key and List editors, the full-on professional audio editing toolset and the seamless remote control integration have made Cubase a mainstay of some of the biggest names in dance and electronic music.

Beat producers
Whether you’re creating hip hop, rap, dance or techno music, Cubase has the right tools at hand: from an MPC-style drum sampler to an intuitive step sequencer over to creative beat mangling tools, there are plenty of options to produce four-to- the-floor beats and massive rhythms. And Cubase also provides a range of ready-to-go samples, sounds and loops alongside amazing-sounding EQs and effects ideal for beat production.

Powerful MIDI editors
Key Editor
At the heart of MIDI sequencing in Cubase is the Key Editor: a breathtakingly powerful yet transparent tool that opens up virtually limitless possibilities for songwriters and composers. The Key Editor is the place where melodies, chords, arrangements and performances take shape and where ideas are sketched out, developed and taken to their full potential. Based on more than three decades of experience, the Key Editor comes with an ultra-intuitive handling and highly accurate tools.

Score Editor
The Score Editor is a professional notation environment with full support for just about all symbol, display and editing options that this entails, including support for lyrics and remarks as well as drum notes, guitar tablature and lead sheets. Simply select the tools needed to create fully professional score layouts for others including soloists, orchestras and choirs. The Score Editor includes more than 100 professional notation symbols and supports the import and export of Music XML files.

VST Expression 2
VST Expression is a groundbreaking technology by Steinberg that provides an ultra-intuitive way of working with instrument articulations, dynamics and multiple controller values. Its second generation is based on three core technologies: Note Expression, Expression Maps and VST Dynamics. Expression Maps help you work with musical articulations, while VST Dynamics allow for highly intuitive handling of dynamics.

On top of this, Note Expression offers a revolutionary approach to create and edit multiple controller values in a single graphical interface, directly on the note they belong to — an invaluable feature for demanding orchestral arrangements as well as cutting-edge electronic music.

Chord Assistant
You don't have to be a musical genius to lay down beautiful harmonies when you're using Cubase. The powerful Chord Assistant helps you to generate everything from simple pop to complex jazz chord sequences that just sound great. Want to specify both the first and final chords but have no clue how to get there? This, also, is possible. The Chord Assistant lists chord suggestions from which you can choose.

Straightforward drum replacement
The bass drum needs some extra punch? The snare drum doesn’t cut through the mix? With the Hitpoint-to-MIDI function, it is very easy to replace, double or enrich 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 up to you which sampler or synth you want to fuel.

VariAudio 2.0
VariAudio offers completely integrated vocal editing and pitch alteration of individual notes in monophonic vocal recordings and can solve intonation and timing problems with a few clicks. Editing vocal lines in the Sample Editor is just as seamless and quick as if editing MIDI notes in the Key Editor.

VST Transit – Collaboration in the cloud
Embedded into Cubase, VST Transit is Steinberg’s new cloud collaboration service. Upload audio and MIDI tracks to cloud storage, continue working from another location and synchronize the changes back to the cloud. Or collaborate on shared projects with friends and band members. VST Transit comes with up to 500 MB free storage space and 1 GB free traffic per month.
