Cubase is one of the most powerful music creation software packages in the world. With its unrivaled range of flexible tools, you can create any kind of music quickly and intuitively. It comes packed with a wide range of virtual instruments, effects and thousands of sounds. Whether you’re a professional composer or a music production beginner, Cubase provides you with everything you need for turning your ideas into music.
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 though 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! =D
I've used almost all of them in my 20+ years as a producer....but I still keep coming back to Cubase. It's the best out of all of them. Truly a producer's tool for creating.
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 ....
