Steinberg Cubase Pro 8.5 DAW Software at a Glance:
With Cubase Pro
8.5, Steinberg aims to make advanced music creation easier than ever.
The MixConsole is one of
their most-used tools, and its dynamic hover mode has been improved to
make it even better. Both the Key and Drum editors have been updated to
make it faster and simpler to create and edit MIDI data. Cubase 8.5 also
provides more ways for you to set up sessions and share data between
them: the Profile Manager allows you to store and recall program
settings and preferences, and you can pull tracks from existing projects
with just a few clicks. Version 8.5 also adds the Retrologue 2
synthesizer plug-in, as well as zPlane Elastique v3
Aiming to help
musicians create together, Steinberg Cubase Pro 8.5 includes access to
the VST Transit cloud collaboration service. Upload your project to
cloud storage, and it can be downloaded anywhere in the world. Built-in
messaging makes it easier for musicians to communicate about the
project. Out of the box, VST Transit gives you 500MB of free storage
space on secure Amazon AWS servers and 1GB of free traffic per month,
with more available with a VST Transit Premium account.
electronic musicians using Cubase have made Retrologue one of their
go-to software synthesizers, and Retrologue 2 is even better. A third
oscillator has been added for fatter, more complex sounds. Polyphonic
LFOs and an additional envelope give you more creative modulation
options. Factor in five new effects, and you'll see that Retrologue 2
packs incredible sound design potential. Over 400 new presets are
included to show you what Retrologue 2 can do.
Once you've got a
track dialed in just the way you want, Cubase Pro 8.5 makes it easy to
import that track into a different project. Import all of that track's
settings and content either as new tracks or to replace existing tracks.
Cubase Pro 8.5 will create new TrackVersions automatically, so you can
quickly revert the track to its previous state if you wish. Track
importing makes it simple to borrow elements from existing projects and
can save you a lot of time in both production and mixdown.
Pro 8.5's Profile Manager makes it easier than ever to recall your
preferred program settings. You can store and recall keyboard shortcuts,
color sets, and much more, allowing you to load your preferred settings
into any Cubase Pro 8.5 workstation.
