Steinberg Cubase 7.5 Advanced Music Production System Details
Steinberg Cubase 7.5 Advanced Music Production System adds new capabilities to bring the best out of your musical creativity and enhance your production workflow: Features such as the TrackVersions system, the new track visibility management tools and the re-record mode offer superior track handling and recording. The enhanced instrument tracks and the new VSTi Rack offer the perfect environment to try out the included Groove Agent 4 SE and HALion Sonic 2 SE instruments. Cubase 7.5 also adds first-class effects with LoopMash FX, the REVelation reverb and Magneto 2, while the legendary Cubase Score Editor offers extended functionality for score creation and composition
Thanks to the new instant hitpoint navigation function, you can now “tab to transients” on audio events in the Project window—yes, it’s as easy as it sounds. Hitpoints are automatically calculated in the background as soon as audio material is recorded or imported into the arrangement window. Simply use the keyboard shortcuts to tab back and forth to navigate around the audio material.
Create, rename and manage parallel versions of the same track or tracks and use them to compare takes or create alternative versions of your recordings while keeping all track settings. Interfacing perfectly with existing track handling features like lanes, the flexible new TrackVersions feature will significantly speed up your workflow when working not only with audio but also MIDI, instrument, chord, tempo and signature tracks.
Cubase 7.5 now offers a track visibility management feature that greatly expedites working with huge projects by dynamically displaying only the tracks you actually want to see. Using the same approach as the channel visibility management introduced in MixConsole and accessed in the Project window’s Inspector, various View Agents help you by instantly bringing the right tracks into focus; this powerful new feature will help you maintain a full overview of your project at all times—even on the largest, most complex productions.
We all know the situation: you hit the record button, grab the guitar or start singing and after the first note you know already that you can do it better; you want to repeat the take immediately. To speed up this task, simply hit the record button again and the recording will start from the original position preserving the original pre-count and metronome settings. A handy, time-saving new feature that’s as simple as it is useful.
The Track Quick Controls just got even more powerful: You can now save and load Track Quick Control assignments as presets for immediate access. Simply click on the Quick Control Track Inspector and apply existing Track Quick Control assignments even to other track types. Who said the small things in life don’t make a huge difference!
The Score Editor has been further enhanced to feature all MIDI-related functions from the Key Editor, giving you all the tools you need, when you need them. This includes dedicated edit operations involving the chord track or basic tasks like quantize, transpose and length editing, all sorted and arranged clearly for a speedy workflow. You can easily switch between the score symbols and the MIDI functions Inspector with the new tabs at the top of the edit section. Not just another improvement, and certainly something you won’t want to miss by the end of the first day.
By fusing the VST Instruments Rack with the instrument track concept, Cubase 7.5 makes working with instruments easier, quicker and more transparent than ever before. Instrument tracks now boast multiple audio outputs for any instrument, and can also be fed by any MIDI track on any channel. Inserting a new instrument into the rack is reflected within the Project window by creating the corresponding instrument track automatically and vice versa. The new Instrument Rack introduces VST Quick Controls for each instrument, letting you modify instruments and sounds even quicker—without even opening their GUI. Best of all, you can now assign each instrument a meaningful name for better identification of its MIDI ports and audio return channels.
Groove Agent SE 4 is a massively featured drum sampler including built-in mixer and effects, pattern playback functions and comfortable sample editing. With its familiar MPC-style layout you will be able to create your beats and hits in no time. And thanks to the deep integration in Cubase, you will be able to see the instruments mapped automatically as drum maps into the Drum Editor and Beat Designer. Groove Agent SE 4 includes dozens of new drum kits sampled by some of the world’s best producers. From soft, bluesy sounds to ear-shattering heavy metal explosions, Groove Agent SE 4 has it all covered.
HALion Sonic SE 2 is a compact version of the next incarnation of Steinberg’s acclaimed HALion Sonic sample player and synthesizer, and delivers a range of sumptuous new sounds and instruments for Cubase. The new Trip virtual analog synth included in HALion Sonic SE 2 features an arpeggiator module with fourvariations andover 150 ultra-dynamic sounds that will propel you to arp-heaven. Eight new effect types are also on board, including Tape Saturator, Wah Wah, Auto Filter, Step Flanger, Ring Modulator, Octaver, Vintage Ensemble, Envelope Shaper and an improved Rotary Effect.
To help you get the most out of your new instruments, we’ve also included the EDM Toolbox with 30 new construction kits, ready to fuel your next production and open up new creative avenues. Construction kits are groups of 25 to 30 MIDI loops routed to predefined instruments including mix settings to get you started in no time, perfect when you’re looking for inspiring new material.

REVelation offers a maximum degree of depth and add sits spatial magic on just about any instrument or sound, from string sections to lead vocals. Included with dozens of useful presets, REVelation will let your mix shine.
After a long hiatus we’ve brought Magneto back in the form of the all-new Magneto 2—and it sounds better than ever. Magneto 2 not only gives the warm, analog sound we’re all familiar with but also adds new exciting new features such as the dual mode to give your tracks more flavor and personality—just like in the old days. And Magneto 2 lets you select the frequency range of the effect to be applied on your track. Magneto 2 offers more analog warmth and character to your digital world.
