Cubase 10 e’ qui !!!

The Major Release: Cubase 10
The latest iterations of Steinberg’s music production software, Cubase Pro 10, Cubase Artist 10, and Cubase Elements 10, combine best audio quality and with a vast range of advanced audio and MIDI tools for composing, recording, editing and mixing music.

Cubase 10

HAMBURG, Germany — Steinberg today officially unveiled the highly anticipated release of the latest version of its award-winning DAW: Cubase 10.


Cubase Pro 10 brings all the technological advancements to the table, the German expertise of which has been accumulated over three decades of extraordinary contributions to the industry. Cubase Artist 10 is a slimmer edition, offering the same core technologies as Cubase Pro alongside many dedicated production tools. Instantly accessible, Cubase Elements 10 is the first step into the world of music production with Cubase.
“This version is a milestone in the innovational history of Cubase. With nearly 30 years to look back on, Cubase Pro 10 encompasses everything required from a DAW — no matter who you are, no matter what your background, no matter what your musical experience,” comments Matthias Quellmann, senior marketing manager for Cubase.

Cubase 10_Audio Alignment

Cubase Pro 10 exclusives
Available to Cubase Pro 10, VariAudio 3 is the perfect and eminently powerful pitch correction tool, introducing many enhancements for editing micro pitch levels and adjusting formant shifts. Another novelty is MixConsole Snapshots for saving and recalling a current mix within the mixer, or for creating and comparing alternate mixes of a project. Cubase Pro 10 also introduces Audio Alignment, a great new feature that allows users to align stacked recordings extremely fast so that vocal and other tracks are in complete sync. REVerence, the convolution reverb in Cubase Pro, includes now 20 new impulse responses, covering a range of vintage reverbs. Smaller feature additions and enhancements include AAF import/ export for exchanging data with different systems, improved editing to picture, and the Steinberg Virtual Reality production suite that offers tools for producing VR content.

Amazing additions to Pro and Artist
Both the Pro and Artist editions of Cubase 10 now include Distroyer, a remarkable addition to the list of effects processors that infuses asymmetric distortion. And side-chaining has also been touched on: new to both Pro and Artist is the simplified side-chain setup that completes the signal routing with only a few clicks. Since both editions feature the unique Note Expression capability, the next step now was to offer MIDI Polyphonic Expression (MPE) support for multidimensional controllers.

Cubase 10_Channel Strip Tube

Family features for Pro, Artist and Elements
In all editions of version 10, the Channel Strip has undergone significant changes, featuring new metering elements in each module, providing immediate visual feedback and further facilitating the mixing process. Groove Agents SE 5, one of many impressive instruments within Cubase, boasts many enhancements to its user interface and comes with an abundance of new acoustic and electronic drum content. The audio engine has also been refined, now supporting 32-bit integer and 64-bit floating-point audio for recording, importing/exporting, and converting. Plug-ins have been redesigned and can now be dragged from the Media Rack and dropped directly into the project, creating an instrument track automatically, while the user interface supports HiDPI for high-resolution displays.

Cubase 10_Channel Strip Vintage
The additional content in Cubase 10 rounds out the extensive feature list: 5 GB of sounds and loops cover various genres, produced by renowned artists the likes of Florian Meindl, Rawtekk, Beat Butcha and many more.

Cubase 10_Full
Quellmann continues: “The audio engine in Cubase delivers pristine, unprecedented, ‘unheard-of’ quality: you’ll never hear the DAW, you won’t perceive unexpected coloring to your recordings, you’ll forget it’s even there — the sound quality is literally unheard of. The editing and production tools are amazing, providing a smooth, firm foundation for your creative input. The new aesthetics of the user interface ensures focused and expedited usability, while the production-grade content included within Cubase is not only fun to use but offers a great starting point to creating any style of music.
“With all the effort that we have put into this major iteration and considering the positive feedback from professional recording engineers and producers throughout its development, I assure that Cubase 10 pushes the envelope beyond the many expectations.”

Cubase ha anche un nuovo canale Youtube al quale vi consiglio di iscrivervi

Costruito sul patrimonio di conoscenze che ha fatto diventare Steinberg una delle compagnie leader a livello mondiale tra quelle che si occupano di software musicale ed audio, Cubase si è costantememnte evoluto e ha ridefinito la produzione musicale digitale, consentendo l’accesso a tutti gli attrezzi del mestiere e creando nuovi modi offrire un approccio efficiente alla composizione alla registrazione, all’editing ed al mixaggio.

Per la prima volta nella storia di Cubase l’intero range di prodotti viene offerto allo stesso tempo, consentendo di scegliere tra le edizioni PRO, ARTIST e ELEMENTS, versioni che sono state progettate su misura per diversi livelli di conoscenza ed utilizzo per chi si occupa di registrazione e produzione.

Cubase 9 pro ovviamente si rivolge per incontrare gli standards dei compositori, produttori ed ingegneri del suono professionisti. Cubase Artist 9 è un gradino più in basso ma fornisce comunque un set di attrezzi omnicomprensivo, su misura per musicisti e songwriters. Vubase Elements 9 è il primo passo nel mondo di Cubase e fornisce una via preferenziale per chi inizia ad occuparsi di software Audio di alta qualità.

Tutte e tre le versioni comunque introducono la nuova LOWER ZONE, consentendo un’area dedicata nella finestra del progetto per il mizer o altre funzioni. La seconda caratteristica da notare è la traccia SAMPLER, un’opzione richiesta da molti utilizzatori e che consente con incredibile semplicità di mandare in play campioni cromaticamente e di manipolarli con una serie di filtri e controlli a portata di mano nella LOWER ZONE. Ovviamente inclusa nella Sampler Track c’è una library enorme con centinaia di campioni.

Zone Concept

Terzo elemento degno di nota è (solo su Cubase Pro) Frequency, il nuovo processore di equalizzazione a 8 parametri, ognuno caratterizzato dal Linear Phase mode, che preserva il segnale di fase della banda.


Cubase Pro e Cubase Artist ora offrono la MixConsole History che conserva e segnala i cambiamenti fatti nella Mix Console, permettendo agli utilizzatori di cancellare o rifare singole azioni di mixaggio in una maniera semplice e flessibile.  Con la nuova funzionalità Audio-Ins gli utilizzatori possono inviare segnali audio a strumenti plug in VST 3 che supportano la side-chain. MixConsole History

Parlando di opportunità la versione 9 include la collaborazione via cloud con Vst Transit inclusa nella versione PRO e ARTIST (mentre il VST CONNECT SE è disponibile solo nella versione PRO).

In tutte e tre le versioni è presente il plug in Maximizer che magicamente migliora l’audio dando alle tracce più volume pur facendo rimanere l’audio chiaro e brillante.


AutoPan è il nuovo too ridisgnato da zero insieme al Brickwall Limiter, Compressore, Expander, Gate e Envelope Shaper. Brickwall Limiter


La Funzione Plug-in Sentinel effetua lo scan dei Plug-Ins all’avvio così da assicurare ogni volta la massima stabilità del sistema.

La library production Groove per Groove Agent è stata ulteriormente espansa con una grande varietà di Loop e campioni in differenti stili musicali.

Frank Simmerlein (direttore del Marketing di Steinberg) ha commentato: abbiamo sempre prestato attenzione ai suggerimenti ed alle critiche dei nostri clienti e Cubase 9 va proprio in questa direzione, grazie ad una serie di indagini e surveys durante la fase di sviluppo abbiamo valutato le priorità sulle quali lavorare, non solo abbiamo realizzato quanto richiesto ma siamo andati oltre.

Cubase 9 è probabilmente l’unica DAW presente sul mercato che copre ogni aspetto della Produzione Musicale, per ogni genere di musica.

Regalo di Pasqua ! Free Organ

La Samplephonics ci stupisce con uno stupendo regalo Pasquale, un vst gratuito per Kontakt. Si tratta del Leeds Town Hall Organ, più di 3 Giga di Campioni.

Potete effettuare il download a questo indirizzo



The picture speaks for itself. Within the beatifully decorated town hall of the city of Leeds in England lies this spectacular organ, towering high into the music hall and silencing the sounds of the city with its earth shuddering, rich, harmonic tones. 

This project was part of a new chapter for Samplephonics known as Sonas, who will be unveiling some spectacular virtual instruments over the coming year. More on that soon!

We spent some time with organist Dr Simon Lindley who told us all about how the instrument works, it’s history and even a guided tour up in to the inside of the organ itself! 

Simon crafted 6 versatile presets for us and we began the painstaking process of sampling this incredible feat of engineering. Over the next few months we spent many evenings in the town hall recording every single note with multiple round robins and over 10 second note recordings to capture the true sonic character of the organ. The repetetive nature of the task actually became quite hypnotic and a strange bond began to form between us, the organ, the building and the very spirit of the city of Leeds.

Everyone involved in the project worked long hours and for free, so we felt that it was only right to give away the fruits of our labour and hope that the spirit of this incredible instrument could spread throughout the world and help people to craft wonderful music that moves people to do good things.

FREE Sleigh Bells Vst per Kontakt

Bellissima sorpresa di NATALE da SONOKINETIK, al seguente indirizzo potete effettuare il download delle classiche “campanelle di Natale”

ecco dei DEMO di seguito


Sleighbells cover
Q: What does every Christmas track need but has been sadly overlooked by most sample developers?
A: Sleigh Bells

Q: What are Sonokinetic going to do about it?
A: Program a ridiculously comprehensive collection of tempo-synced sleigh bells and give it to you for FREE as an extra special xmas gift.

Sonokinetic brings you this treat, free for anyone to enjoy, but no less powerful than our paid-for libraries. We figured it’s a time for giving presents, and we wanted to thank all of you for the 5 years you kept Sonokinetic going strong, and growing to the company it is today…Thank You!

So for this special package, we donned our comedy Santa hats and recorded 6 different sizes of sleigh bells, ranging from just one bell to a 25 bell stick. The samples were captured using apogee hardware and a violet audio flamingo stereo microphone.

We’re providing loops in two tempi. Using Kontakt’s Time Machine function and our in-house developed ITM (Intelligent Tempo Mapping) the loops will adapt to your carol seamlessly. We have captured two meters (3/4 and 4/4) and two feels… straight(ish) called ‘trot’ and a shuffle-feel ‘gallop’ which Rudolph tells us keeps him in perfect sync with the other reindeer.

We’ve also captured a sleigh full of single hits, to create a set of round robins for maximum realism… that’s between 23 and 41 different hits per instrument.

The interface is themed around an advent calendar (what else?!) You can open doors by either clicking them, or playing any of the keys associated with that door. The numbers refer to the number of bells of that particular sleigh bell, and in number 0 there is a general options field.

Did we mention it’s free?

Please help us spread the holiday spirit by telling all your friends and family (or at least the ones that own a full version of Kontakt and know how to use it). We might be a bit early, but we figured you were gonna need this for your Christmas composing, which is happening right now.

So enjoy, and until the next release God rest Ye all…
