This comprehensive update makes the Cubase experience even more direct and accessible, incorporating enhancements developed at the request of the many professional Cubase users worldwide. Cubase Pro 8.5 and Cubase Artist 8.5 not only offer a sleeker workflow and added creative tools but also an innovative cloud-based collaboration system embedded in Cubase: VST Transit.
Attention to detail:
There's hardly an area of Cubase that hasn't been tweaked and improved in version 8.5: from MIDI editing and mixing to tempo changes and track handling...
Transport and recording workflow:
Better visibility, smoother handling and added features mean more effective workflows for even the biggest, most intricate tracking sessions.
Mixing and track handling:
Refining the acclaimed MixConsole environment and proven Cubase track handling tools, version 8.5 makes mixing and manipulating audio channels even more intuitive.
Famed from day one for its MIDI editing toolset, Cubase now offers even more tools and options when manipulating MIDI data, with added tools for both the Key and Drum Editors.
Accessibility and workflow:
Using feedback from Cubase users, we implemented a horde of tweaks designed to make vital functions more accessible and the entire Cubase experience even more responsive.
Enhanced Chord Pads and symbols:
Further enhancing one of the most inspiring songwriting tools available on any DAW, the extended Chord Pads feature will help you break through even the most massive composer's block.
