Steinberg releases Cubase 13

-
Steinberg

Steinberg has released Cubase 13, offering user interface refinements, new features, and workflow enhancements aimed at simplifying and inspiring music composition, production, and mixing.

Streamlined Mixing Experience

Cubase 13 introduces a redesigned MixConsole that promises to improve focus during the mixing process. The Project window now includes a channel tab, providing direct access to essential mixing parameters for each channel without leaving the arrangement. This new design allows users to adjust their mix in a per-channel view, hopefully enhancing the production process.

Vocal Production

The VocalChain plug-in streamlines vocal mixing by combining all vocal processing steps into one tool. Cubase Pro and Cubase Artist also feature the VoxComp, a dedicated vocal compressor that gently refines recordings without sacrificing clarity, transients, or expression.

Enhanced MIDI Composition

Several new features are included in the MIDI editors to streamline composition workflows. The Range Selection tool is now available in MIDI editors, and Cubase Pro users can view and edit multiple parts directly within these editors. Step and MIDI input functions have been improved, making MIDI CC recording simpler for further editing.

Revamped Chord Pads

Chord Pads have been completely redesigned and come with new functionalities. The integrated Chord Assistant and the circle of fifths help users discover creative chord progressions with preset starting points.

Iconica Sketch

A Compact Orchestral Library Iconica Sketch offers 140 articulations for 34 instruments in a compact 5 GB library. This scoring utility allows both beginners and professional composers to create high-quality orchestral scores effortlessly.

Plugin Additions

Steinberg has introduced their new Vocoder plugin with Cubase 13, offering users the ability to create classic robotic vocals or add analog character to instruments with up to 24 filter bands, sidechain input, and precise control. The update also includes two new equalizers, EQ-P1A and EQ-M5, and Black Valve, a classic tube compressor with warmth, character, and sonic detail.

Additional Highlights:

  • New Spectral Warp modes in the Sampler Track for sound manipulation and envelope creation.
  • New sample packs.
  • Enhanced Track Versions for the Video Track for smoother video editing.
  • Improved flexibility in configuring playback start.
  • New Tap Tempo feature on the Transport Bar.
  • One-click conversion of mono to stereo and vice versa channel type.
  • Enhanced options for importing tracks, events, and time ranges.
  • Support for MIDI 2.0.
  • Windows-compliant multi-window handling and an improved Windows video engine for better performance.

Cubase 13 is the result of many conversations and interactions we had with our user base in the last years. Our primary goal was to help our users to stay in the flow when they are creative and we are very happy about the balance of workflow improvements and new creative features in Cubase 13.

Matthias Quellmann, senior product marketing manager for Cubase
