Spectral Comparison EQ

Cleaning up frequencies to create room for each instrument is the key to a good mix. The new Spectral Comparison mode in the Channel EQ helps you to identify where action is needed. Just route a second signal from any track into the EQ and compare the spectral curves within the EQ display. Toggle between the EQ controls of the source and comparison channel and adjust the mix without losing focus on what you’re doing.

Video Export Render

Scoring to picture is one of the many strengths of Cubase. You can now export videos (including audio) for your clients and collaborators directly from within the DAW. The new video export feature lets your render videos as MP4 with H.264 video compression and 16-bit stereo audio in 44.1 kHz and 48 kHz. Export the whole video or just footage within the locator range, adding the timecode to the video export for the next production process.

MultiTap Delay

Providing the rhythm for your echo, the new MultiTap Delay is made for musicians, with all the inspirational creative options that you need. Up to eight taps per delay loop can conveniently be created and edited. You can add effects with a simple click to the complete output, just the delay loops or even each individual tap, while different character presets deliver the sound of clean digital delays or classic vintage echo units.

Padshop 2

Steinberg’s highly acclaimed granular synthesizer Padshop 2 comes with great improvements and even more creative tools. At its heart, the new spectral oscillator opens the door to unheard soundscapes and lets you turn your own samples into fascinating sonic sculptures. Add motion to your sounds with the new arpeggiator section and use the effects section to add the finishing shine. You can be inspired by the 100 new presets or start creating your own unique sounds right away.

Colorized Mixer Channels

Maintaining a clear overview while your project is growing is essential for a fast and easy workflow. With the new option to colorize complete channels in the MixConsole with track colors, you will be able to focus on the mix by intuitively finding the channels you are looking for. Even if you are sitting several meters away from the screen, there is no longer a danger of getting lost in your mix!

Import Tracks From Projects

Exchanging data between projects or creating new project templates is now vastly easier with the new track import functionality. Import multiple track types from other projects (like Group, FX or Folder Tracks) and select the track attributes you want to import. Setting up the same drum mix for multiple projects? Cubase has you covered. With a simple click, the AutoMap function even matches the imported tracks to existing tracks with the same name.

Retrospective MIDI Record

Do you always deliver your best performances when not recording? The completely revised MIDI Retrospective Recording feature can help you to bring your A-game to every project. Cubase tracks your MIDI input — even when you are not recording — and brings back your chords and melodies as a stacked cycle or a continuous performance with just a click. Even better, your performance is captured on multiple tracks. So no more worries — Cubase has your back.

Combined Select Tools

The new Combined Select Tools mode speeds up your editing workflow by combining the two most frequently used tools in one powerful feature. Activate the new tool mode and the selection tools for both objects and ranges can be used at the same time, without the need to change tools. If you are a professional and time is critical, Combined Select Tools mode will be your new best friend!

Cubase 11 – More Customizable, More Inspirational, More Productive

Steinberg is featuring Cubase 11, comprising Pro, Artist and Elements editions, during NAMM’s virtual Believe in Music week starting January 21. Each edition has the same core technologies but with dedicated tools tailored to the scope and scale of individual music production requirements.

Cubase is celebrated for its comprehensive feature set, powerful tools and unparalleled sound quality. Since 1989, Cubase has been bringing technological advancements to the table, the German expertise in creating which has been accumulated over three decades of core contributions to the industry. Now, Cubase 11 is the next major step in the long evolution of DAWs.

Guiding you on your music production journey

Cubase 11 is for music producers, songwriters, engineers and composers and those who aspire to become all of these. Version 11 not only delivers a myriad of workflow and performance improvements across the entire range. It has also upgraded the smaller Artist and Elements editions: VariAudio 3, ARA 2 support and unlimited audio, MIDI and instrument tracks in Artist, and side-chain support in Elements. Combining these enhancements and upgrades with the exciting newly introduced features provides genuine inspiration for the creative journey of producing music to the highest standards.

Exclusively available in Pro

Cubase Pro 11 focuses on making printing stems a much easier task. Exporting processes can be queued and exported in one operation, with the export selection easily aligned with the selection made in the project, and controlling the full signal path, including channel insert effects group sends and master bus effects, is now a reality within Cubase.

Another focus within the Pro edition is synchronization across different windows. With Global Tracks now displayed in the Key Editor, staying in sync with tempo changes or markers is possible without ever having to leave the editor.

The Frequency EQ plug-in has received an update, now delivering dynamic response options: dynamic mode for each of its eight bands makes the filter nodes follow the input signal, and the newly introduced multiple side-chaining allows each band in Frequency to be set to an individual side-chain.

The Score Editor comes with many new enhancements. The new Properties provides instant access to matching options and notation settings, with Note Editing Overlay, notes now edited as conveniently as in the Key Editor. The Score Editor now also supports the SMuFL font format, bringing Dorico’s Bravura and Petaluma fonts to Cubase for the first time.

Other new additions in Cubase Pro 11 are Eucon integration for supporting the latest Avid consoles, the remote recording plug-in VST Connect SE 5 with a resizable and HiDPI-ready user interface, and 5.1 surrounds sound support for the MultiTap Delay signal processor.

Amazing additions to Pro and Artist

Available in both Cubase Pro and Cubase Artist, SuperVision is a fully customizable, multimeter audio analyzer, providing up to nine module slots for level, spectral, phase and waveform analysis.

Alongside the many refinements included in Pro and Artist, such as new Marker Lines, Pitch Visibility, and improvements to the Range Selection tool and ARA workflow, additional tools have been introduced. These include Imager, the new multiband plug-in that contributes to a cleaner mix, and SpectraLayers One, a compact version of the acclaimed SpectraLayers Pro 7. Imager offers four bands for placing audio tracks in the stereo field, and the individual scope and correlation displays facilitating an easier panning to make the tracks sit perfectly in the stereo spectrum, while SpectraLayers One lets users visualize and edit audio in the spectral domain.

Family features for Pro, Artist and Elements

The Sampler Track in Cubase 11 boasts many new additions, such as the new slicing mode for loop-based samples, two global LFOs for more complex filtering sounds, and the new mono legato glide, which is ideal for bass lines.

The Scale Assistant is another addition to the Key Editor, setting the scale to ensure that all notes are played in perfect tune. Change the view so that only the notes of the set scale are displayed or let the Scale Assistant analyze the played MIDI notes and change them to the correct scale. Further improvements to the Key Editor’s capabilities include creating ramps and curves in the CC and Pitch Bend lanes, setting pitch bend steps to semitones, copying CC edits to another MIDI track and deleting MIDI notes with a simple double-click — it’s often the small things that make all the difference.

Also new to Cubase 11 is Squasher, a great tool that combines upward and downward audio compression for up to three bands, making it extremely flexible for adjusting the dynamic range.

Cubase 11 also comes with fresh-new content: six sound and loop sets have been created by hip-hop producer Beat Butcha, Hollywood sound designer Robert Dudzic and Black Octopus Sound, covering a wide range of music styles that will help to quickly jump-start any music production project.

Additional features across the three editions of Cubase include variable DPI on Windows 10, with more scaling settings than ever before, optimized performance for Metal-capable GPUs, further optimization for real-time processing on systems with more than eight cores, and a new multiple side-chain input architecture.

Steinberg’s Senior Marketing Manager for Cubase, Matthias Quellmann, commented: “Cubase 11 is an outstanding release, which includes many enhancements and new features to make producing music easier, quicker and, yes, make Cubase more fun to use as well. We have been working closely with producers and composers to see what developments would enhance their workflow: some have a big impact on how one works in Cubase while others are small, detailed changes that make certain processes run just that much more smoothly. Overall, Cubase 11 is an essential update for all Cubase users as well as being the ideal version for those looking to dive into the world of music production for the first time.”
