Steinberg Cubase Pro 8 screenshot One year after releasing the point update, Cubase is back with major updates of its studio-grade audio and MIDI tools for composing, recording, editing and mixing. Cubase also becomes Cubase Pro. The name change reflects the 25-year evolution of Steinberg's advanced music production system and spearheads the Cubase range of DAWs. Both Cubase Pro 8 and Cubase Artist 8 witness a massive engine rebuild letting users run more instruments and more tracks. Automation enhancements include VCA faders and render in-place for bouncing MIDI and audio parts. Chord pads, Chord Assistant modes and MIDI tempo detection are introduced, while the new Rack Zone provides a dedicated area for the MediaBay sound browser and VST Instrument Rack. The redesigned Track List and Inspector, the new plug-in manager, global workspaces plus improved windows handling on PCs make the lives of Cubase users easier. Also added were Quadrafuzz multiband distortion plug-in, the new Virtual Bass Amp, Multiband Expander, Multiband Envelope Shaper and many other effects. Groove Agent SE 4 now includes an acoustic drum kit, the Acoustic Agent, with 20 drum style patterns. The MixConsole has also witnessed feature additions and there's a new version of VST Connect for remote recording over the Web. The Cubase Pro 8 and Cubase Artist 8 full retail versions are available for pre-order from resellers and through the Steinberg Online Shop from December 3, 2014. Shipping begins on December 8, 2014.
