CUBASE GUIDES YOU ON YOUR MUSIC PRODUCTION JOURNEY
Do you want to start creating your own music, bring your production up to a professional level, or streamline your workflow for short deadlines? Whatever you need, Cubase helps you to reach your full creative potential. From Hollywood blockbuster composers and Billboard Hot 100 producers right through to keen beginners, the world of music production trusts the comprehensive feature set, straightforward tools and unrivaled sound of our acclaimed music production software.
- The reference standard for music production software
- Produce tracks from start to finish
- Suitable for all genres, levels and budgets
- Fast, flexible and intuitive workflows
Cubase 11 comes with a vast range of workflow and performance improvements, as well as exciting new ways to find inspiration and improve your productions. No matter what your musical goals are, Cubase 11 will help you to reach them.
In most DAWs, printing stems is a repetitive and time-consuming task. Cubase Pro 11 makes this job much faster, less prone to errors and way more convenient. Sync your export selection to the selection in your project. Create and restore file format presets. Export the full signal path, including master bus effects, to truly replicate the mix. Cubase Pro 11 even lets you collect your export jobs and export the whole queue in one go while you grab a coffee.
Sample. Slice. Move. Glide.
The Sampler Track in Cubase 11 has a number of great new features to discover. The new slicing mode chops up your loops so they’re ready to play with just a click. There are now two global LFOs available to add motion and a catch to your sounds. You can go for a vintage feel or the highest fidelity with the sample engine’s new quality modes. Then there’s the new mono legato glide, perfect for riding 808 basslines… and more!
Your Personal Scale Assistant
The Scale Assistant is a superb addition to your songwriting toolkit. You can set your song’s scale in the Key Editor and follow its lead, quantize a solo to the scale or play live in perfect tune. You can change the view to only see the notes of the set scale. You can even let the Scale Assistant analyze your MIDI recording and suggest the right scale. Now there are no more excuses for wrong notes!
Cubase 11 brings a huge improvement to the Key Editor’s functionality. You can now create ramps and curves in the CC and Pitch Bend lanes, just like you are used to with automation. Set your pitch bend steps to semitones and you will always be perfectly in tune. All of your CC edits can also be conveniently copied to another MIDI track, while MIDI notes can now be deleted with a simple, fast double-click.
Amazingly Precise Dynamic EQ
There are many reasons why you should use dynamic equalization to get a better mix and, with Frequency 2, there are now no reasons why you shouldn’t. Each of its eight bands can be individually set to dynamic mode, making the filter node dependent on the input signal for amazingly precise dynamic mixing. And, even better, Cubase 11 allows you to set a different side-chain for each band by making use of the multiple side-chain architecture of VST 3.
Staying in sync with tempo changes or markers is crucial when composing any kind of music. Cubase 11 makes your life easier with Global Tracks now able to be displayed in the Key Editor. With no need to leave the Key Editor anymore, this great visual reference will keep your compositions moving along quickly and creatively.
Enhance EDM with Squasher
Electronic dance music productions need Squasher! This dynamic tool combines up and down compression for up to three bands, making it super flexible in many situations. Use it to help your lead sounds cut through the mix, tame aggressive bass lines or enhance subtle, spacey reverberation. Squasher is amazingly easy to use and it sounds fantastic.
New Score Editor Features and Fonts
The Score Editor was enhanced with lots of great additions and improvements. The new Properties tab lets you instantly access the matching options and settings of your notation and, with the Note Editing Overlay, you can edit notes as conveniently as in the Key Editor. There are more workflow improvements, and the Score Editor now also supports the SMuFL font format, which will bring Dorico’s beautiful Bravura and Petaluma fonts to Cubase.
The multiband Imager is another great tool that will help you to get a better, cleaner mix. You can place audio tracks in the stereo field independently in up to four bands, allowing you to expand or reduce the stereo width of your sound. The individual scope and correlation displays help you to get your panning absolutely perfect.
Visual Editing with SpectraLayers One
SpectraLayers One is a compact version of the acclaimed visual audio editing tool. SpectraLayers One allows you to visualize and clean up your audio with stunning results. But there is even more. Thanks to the state-of-the-art source separation engine, you can separate the vocal part from any kinds of audio tracks. Whether you want to remix your favorite song or create mash-ups, SpectraLayers One helps you to get started.
SuperVision is a fully customizable, multimeter audio analyzer for professional productions. You can choose out of several different modules for level, spectral, phase and waveform analysis, creating your own custom layout with up to nine module slots to give you a supremely accurate visual picture of your sound.
Inspiring New Sample Sets

Go-to Hollywood sound designer Robert Dudzic brings the Noir pack for cinematic trailers, where every sound tells a story.

Trusted musician and artist reviews for Steinberg Cubase 11
Based on 91 Reviews and 505 Ratings
I know there’s a lot of Cubase lovers out there and I can understand why. But no.
Honestly made the worst buying decision ever wasting a couple hundred dollars on this cluttered DAW. If you look at the technical aspects, yes Cubase is one of the better more capable ones. But I so wish I had chosen Logic, Ableton or Reason. The UI/UX in Cubase is just so bad and it makes me frustrated which then distracts me from actually making music. Sorry but a no for me.
If Steinberg makes some very thorough revisions in their UI/UX this could be one of the best DAWs overall. But right now it most certainly isn’t.Version: Steinberg Cubase 10

So close to being perfect
Cubase is so close to reaching perfection imo. Here are some indispensable "niche" features that I use on a daily basis:
ASIO Guard for being able to load more plugins by pre-calculating the buffer cycles as opposed to doing processing calculations during playback
A built-in software control room for cue mixes, talkback & room correction separate from the DAW's mixer page
Flipping the left/right locators for a loop range such that it skips the loop entirely during playback (cycle at the top goes from purple to orange when the locators are flipped for easy reference)
Built-in post-fader inserts (no need to create a post-fader send; less channels to manage in your session)
I'm able to do this & more standard/niche tasks while having a very stable experience (the surefire way to get a stable experience as a Windows user is to follow Steinberg's suggestions laid out in this article: https://helpcenter.steinberg.de/hc/en-us/articles/360008589880-Windows-10-How-to-set-up-and-optimize-a-Digital-Audio-Workstation-DAW).
Imo if Cubase had a gapless audio engine & redone GUI, it'd be the perfect DAW. I define "redone GUI" as something "simpler" to not overwhelm users coming from DAWs like Ableton, Logic & Pro Tools. There also seems to be an inconsistency in the fonts used for the program & horrible upscaling when using a monitor over 1080p.
I'll stop rambling; I just love Cubase so much!
Cubase 10 review:
The much improved sidechain architecture is a welcome surprise. Can now both send to a sidechain destination and receive from a sidechain source (used to only be able to send to a sidechain destination). While the implementation is not visually the most pleasing, it works flawlessly (look at the send effects section of your sidechain source to see what I mean; Steinberg should have taken a page out of Avid's playbook and had the send slots be taken up only if you're sending to a sidechain destination).
Audio alignment is also really handy. I anticipate most users would rather take advantage of the ARA2 protocol and pull up something like VocALign. Speaking of ARA2... Steinberg implemented it perfectly! Such a welcome sight. They didn't try to rush to be first and have to deal with the consequences of shitty design. Yay to that!
For me, the sidechain architecture alone makes the jump to version 10 worth it. The ARA2 implementation and wealth of new features inside Cubase will probably make it worth it for you too! =DVersion: Steinberg Cubase 10.5
I wasn't going to upgrade cubase
I'm mixing hours of live material for my bst friend. He records into cubase sx2 on a win xp svc pack3 machine. Shit you not. Its stable. My copy of cubase 8 or whatever that I never updated wound up migrating to my new machine and then wouldn't see my motu gear. So he offered to buy me 11 after a friend made sure the SX files still basically opened, edits and time signatures etc, in 11 pro.
It took my a full day, like 12 hours of fiddling to figure out that my usual MOTU internal routing isn't to cubase's liking.... so I made a cubase template for my routing and now I just kick that shit on to work on Mike's stuff. I dock 1 star for being unlike every other DAW I have in how it deals with my MOTU's multiple monitors routing... and also for the dreary stock, gray look.... but all my outboard cheers me up fine. It also can't import basic mixer settings from older versions, so i have to reebuild any routing on this stuff,however I was ererouting to my console anyway. Otherwise this the best cubase ever. A real contender to this day. SX was my jam for 3 versions so this is like going home. The latency compensation allows me to use stuff in loops in real time like protools HD systems
I think Harrison and Steinberg need to team up and build the world beating DAW with the sonics, perfect latency compensaton track by track.... and workkflow both in mixing and midi.... it could be called Innuendo LOL or Mixbase 32C
OH YEAH! USB dongles are bullshit.
If you're new to production i'd highly recommend Cubase Elements, but for more complex music production i wouldn't recommend getting Elements.
It's a very nice DAW If you're just getting started with production. I'd like to add that coming from Ableton live it was very easy for me to integrate myself into it.
For my work that required a lot of compression, EQ-ing and layering, it didn't last very long until i realized i already had to upgrade. A DAW without sidechain compression won't get me very far. As well as it's quite limited with Instrument tracks and midi tracks, which is a crucial point to my work.
That being said, you do get what you pay for and i would recommend it for those who are new to the scene, or have less complex work or ideas.Version: Steinberg Cubase 8
The heart of my setup
My favorite DAW. I tried Live and FL but this is the one that stuck to me. It's pretty stable and has all the functions I can wish for at a rather cheap price when I compare it to other entry-level versions of DAWs. I've yet to try the remore app. The only problem is, is that the Elements version has no sidechain possibilities, so I'll upgrade to Artist soon!Version: Steinberg Cubase 7
Probably one of the best DAWs out there. Totally worth it.
Cubase 8 (Even Elements), is probably one of the world's best DAWs, with over 25 years of expert work, a clean and simple interface, and an even greater sound, Cubase is 100% something I would recommend to anyone, whether you're a producer just starting out, or a pro, Cubase should be perfect for you. Although it does take some time to get used to how everything is routed, as well as learning how to set up your audio properly, once you have the knowledge, you have everything you need to get cracking on your new track. For the price, it is, in my honestly opinion, the best DAW I have ever purchased.Version: Steinberg Cubase 8

more to do with what I started on
I never played or di anything for about 14 years after being in bands for most of my youth . My partner knew very little of my past apart from I " used to play " and the songs I sang my daughter at bed time ... So she bought me a cut down entry level of Cubase ... Cubase LE I recall . After taking me , literally , weeks to get a squeak out of the damn thing I eventually found a learning curve ... Months later when I got genned up on MIDI and its enabling qualities I was transformed ha ha . So I have slowly , with an eBay bargain or two , Built my way up to this version . An adventure city of a program with no street map . Best game I ever played ....Version: Steinberg Cubase 10
Preferred Settings + Usage:
its the DAW I learned on and iv stuck with it ... The learning curve involved in trying a different one makes me exhausted at. the thought ... I'v no complaints as it has everything I need
Crashes every now and then in Yosemite, but my computer needs to be replaced too so I can't tell whose fault it is...
Though I have heard out and about from people that they're having trouble with some 3rd party plugs and locating the VST3 libraries. Glad that's not happened to me yet tho.Version: Steinberg Cubase 8
A fresh new start.
I decided to buy Cubase when i was studying, since Steinberg gives huge discount if you study music, when you buy their products as EDU versions, even though they're basicly full versions, even after you upgrade them.
When i first had Cubase on my hands, i was used to FL Studio, its workflow and features. Cubase was completely new to me, so of course, i had to check it out, and i can't believe how amazing it really is, yet im too lazy to get myself off the plane and start using it for good, because of my earlier experience with FL Studio.
But today, i'm using it confidentially to its purpose, i love it, it has everything that FL Studio lacks in quality. It's sorting out everything so i don't create a mess, and the mixer is my biggest favourite since it doesnt show a row of empty mixer channels like FL Studio, every channel is entitled to an instrument channel, or audio channel, and its so much easier to keep control. When doing automation, its even easier than FL to maintain, since its all collected into one instrument channel in the composition window, located in a row under each channel.
Which is why im happy that i own Cubase aswell as FL Studio, they both have a place in the studio today.Version: Steinberg Cubase 7.5
Great for audio and more acoustic music
I usually use Logic for my production, as I'm more into electronic music. However, when I make more kind of acoustic music, I use cubase as I find working with audio is a lot easy and generally better in cubase than it is in LogicVersion: Steinberg Cubase 6
