Recensione Cubase pro 8.5

 

http://www.steinberg.net/en/products/cubase/new_features/whats_new_in_cubase_85.html

Cubase Pro 8.5 ha un prezzo di 549 euro, mentre Cubase Artist costa 299 euro. I prezzi per gli upgrade dalle versioni precedenti partono dai 49.99 euro per chi viene dalla versione 8.

VST Transit ushers in Steinberg’s new cloud collaboration service. Users running version 8.5 share and synchronize joint projects and take full advantage of cloud-based music production by receiving 500 MB cloud storage and 1 GB free traffic for Cubase projects. Upgrades to a capacity of 5 GB space and 20 GB traffic will be available from January 2016.
Retrologue 2 is the second iteration of Steinberg’s virtual analog synthesizer that includes enhancements to the synth section, many new presets, the highly flexible Arpeggiator and five new effects, such as the innovative three-band Resonator.
Other highlights show refinements to the MixConsole, now with an improved dynamic hover mode and the option to show all inserts, sends and EQs simultaneously. Importing tracks from other projects is now a lot easier and now includes all track settings and content.

The Key and Drum Editors come with new visualization and editing capabilities; the Chord Pads feature allows for intuitive control of arpeggiated and overlapping chords plus support of custom chord symbols. The Transport Panel has been overhauled while its menu item contains all commands and options clearly categorized in submenus.

Dedicated punch points have newly been introduced, which remain independent from the locator position.

Audiowarp now boasts improved audio quality when time-stretching due to the élastique v3 algorithm by zPlane, and the new MediaBay project rack expedites the location of instruments, presets and audio and MIDI files. The new Profile Manager is exclusive to Cubase Pro 8.5, allowing uses to store and recall program settings and preferences. Customized profiles can then be transferred to any studio environment running Cubase.

“The 8.5 updates are the next step in the ‘Provolution’ that started a year ago with the previous Pro and Artist 8 versions,” said Steinberg’s Director of Marketing, Frank Simmerlein. “We listened very closely to what our customers were saying, and our team responded in detail by delivering an equal balance between strong new features and a multitude of refinements to the brick and mortar of Cubase.”

EDM Trap

$ 99

Trap is one of the fastest growing styles on the EDM/hip-hop oriented market. We created the ultimate Trap Tool for your production pleasure.

Zeus

Next-Generation Drum Kit

The Zeus Drum Kit contains over 25GB of pristine drum samples, including a wealth of microphone positions and hyper extensive sample sets of cymbals and hi-hats. In addition Zeus have superior controls powered by the flexibility of the Kontakt engine, highly customizable mixer and mapping technologies. But most importantly Zeus sounds completely realistic – like completely real!

One of the problems with the current generation of drum sampling is that elements like hi-hats and cymbals artificially stack upon each other. In reality a cymbal doesn’t stack. It partially gets muted when its hit again, but it also carries specific sounds from the previous hit. We call this concept Flow Note – just wait till you hear the difference with Zeus.

Zeus will be released in December.
