Steinberg

Steinberg Media Technologies has announced the next generation of its Cubase music production software range. Cubase 4 and its streamlined sister product, Cubase Studio 4, include a range of new features and technologies that offer enhanced capabilities and workflow for musicians, producers and other audio professionals worldwide.

Of major interest is that VST3 is mentioned, although what's new in the VST3 specification is not - separate news item to follow!

New features in Cubase 4 include:

  • SoundFrame universal sound manager helps users organize, preview and retrieve audio, video and project files, patches for software and hardware synths, Track and Instrument Presets and much more, including the powerful MediaBay browser and media file management system.
  • Control Room* seamlessly integrates Cubase 4 within analogue monitoring environments with up to four separate monitor mixes, external audio input integration, speaker selection, talkback and more.
  • Brand new VST3 plug-in set with over 30 new plug-ins including StudioEQ*, Cloner, ModMachine, AmpSimulator and guitar tuner, new Multiband Compressor and many more.
  • Three new VST instruments: 3 new synthesizers: Prologue, Spector* and Mystic* as well as HALion One sample player with hundreds of new instruments based on Yamaha Motif waveforms.
  • New redesigned user interface with enhanced navigability, configurable channel strip and track inspector as well as a range of new mixer functions.
  • Enhanced Score and Notation features further extend Cubase extensive functionality by adding new settings dialogue, symbol inspector and two new score fonts.
  • New Instrument Track class accelerates handling of VST Instruments and combines MIDI and plug-in automation within the same track.
  • Cross platform support for Windows and Mac OSX Universal Binary.
