    • Note Expression - Note Expression provides a very intuitive and accurate way of controller editing. As an alternative to working with controller lanes in the Key Editor, controller data can be viewed and edited directly on the associated MIDI note events in the event display. A note and its associated controller data are treated as a unit so, when you quantize, move, copy, duplicate, or delete notes, all of the associated controller information follows.
    • Arranger Track - The arranger functions in Cubase let you work in a non-linear fashion. Using an arranger track allows you to specify how and when specific sections are played back, even in live performances, meaning you do not need to move, copy, and paste events in the Project window.
    • Chord Assistant - You don't have to be a musical genius to create beautiful melodies in Cubase. The powerful Chord Assistant helps you to generate everything from simple pop to complex jazz chord sequences that sound great. If you want to specify the first and final chords but don’t know what should go in between? This, also, is possible. The Chord Assistant lists chord suggestions from which you can choose.
    • Chord Assistant Proximity Mode - The Chord Assistant’s proximity mode uses a set of harmonic rules to offer suggestions that match the original chord. The tonal center is highlighted by the original chord at the bottom center of the Chord Assistant window and the farther away a chord suggestion is from it, the more complex the suggestion. The suggested chords are either triads or four-note chords.
    • Tempo Track - The Tempo track helps you to create tempo changes within your project.
    • Signature Track - The Signature track gives you the opportunity to add and edit the time signature within your project.
    • Expression Maps - Expression Maps allows you to audition a composition, including musical articulations. Within these maps you can specify the sound mapping and characteristics for all your musical expressions.
    • TrackVersions - The flexible TrackVersions feature helps to significantly speed up workflow by allowing you to create, rename and manage parallel versions of the same audio, MIDI, instrument, chord, tempo and signature track (or tracks) and use them to compare takes or create alternative versions of your recordings, while keeping all track settings. It interfaces perfectly with existing track handling features like lanes.
    • Global Transpose Track - The transpose track allows you to transpose either the entire project or any sections of it, a function which is very useful if, for example, you want to create harmonic variations.
    • MusicXML Import/Export - Cubase can import and export MusicXML files, making it possible to transfer musical scores to and from applications that support this file format. (Please note, there are some restrictions regarding the parameters supported by Cubase).
    • Hermode Tuning - Hermode Tuning dynamically retunes the notes you play, creating clear frequencies for every (for example) fifth and third interval. Retuning only affects individual notes and it maintains the pitch relationship between keys and notes. The retuning is a continuous process and also takes the musical context into account.
    • Time Warp - The Time Warp tool allows you to move the musical positions of events or parts to specific time positions. You can adjust the positions of musical time-based material, or you can match material with a musical time base to that with a linear time base.
  • Recording
    • Control Room - Control Room is a unique recording and monitoring environment, which seamlessly integrates performer mixes and monitoring setups into your recording and mixing workflow. Cubase allows you to create and manage up to four unique studio mixes to feed performers with their own tailored mix, use the integrated talkback function and manage feeds from external audio sources.

When recording several takes, Cubase instantly creates a Lane Track for each one. From here, Cubase makes it very simple to create the perfect version. Simply swipe across the best parts and Cubase automatically creates a master take that contains all selected parts. In addition, the Comp tool offers extremely useful click-and-drag features for immediate results.
    • Audio Pre-Record - This allows you to specify for how many seconds any incoming audio you play is captured in buffer memory during playback or in stop mode.
    • Retrospective Record - Retrospective Record means you never lose any ideas! It allows you to capture any MIDI notes that you play in Stop mode, or during playback, and turn them into a MIDI part.
    • Punch In/Punch Out - The punch in and punch out points are a pair of markers which determine the record start (punch in) and record stop (punch out) positions.
    • Metronome Click (Advanced) - The advanced Metronome Click offers you the Click Pattern Editor. It allows you to compose custom metronome patterns with up to four different accent levels, and to assign several different patterns to the Signature Track, making it easy for the click to follow any time signature change. You can select one of the many pre-installed click sounds or load your own, ensuring the metronome is always helping you keep perfectly in time.
    • Marker Track - You can use marker tracks to add and edit markers which help you quickly locate certain positions in your project.
    • Pre-Roll/Post-Roll - This allows the project cursor to roll back by a specified time value before playback starts. When the cursor reaches the left locator, recording is automatically activated. When the cursor reaches the right locator, recording is deactivated, but playback continues for the specified post-roll value before stopping.
    • Re-recording - In this mode recording is reinitiated, the events are removed, and recording is restarted from the same position.
    • Pool - Every time you record on an audio track, a file is created on your hard disk. A reference to this file (a clip) is added to the Pool. The Pool displays folders and their contents in a similar way to the File Explorer/Mac OS Finder, allowing you to intuitively perform operations that affect files on disk and that only affect clips.
  • Sequencing
    • Key Editor - The Key Editor is a very powerful yet transparent tool that opens up virtually limitless possibilities for songwriters and composers.

    • Note To CC - This effect generates a MIDI continuous controller event for each incoming MIDI note. The value of the controller event corresponds to the velocity of the MIDI note, which is then used to control the selected MIDI controller (by default CC 7, Main Volume). For each note end, another controller event with the value 0 is sent. The incoming MIDI notes pass through the effect unaffected.
    • Track Control - The Track Control effect features three control panels for adjusting parameters on a GS or XG compatible MIDI device from within the host application. The Roland GS and Yamaha XG protocols are extensions of the General MIDI standard, allowing for more sounds and better control of various instrument settings.

    Yawn

    Posted by Jordan Voth on Apr 1st 2017

    Another $150 thrown at Steinberg to run the latest Cubase and it STILL performs poorly on Mac OS. No Import Session Data, no absolute automation modes, no click render but of course, the purple ELicenser remains. If you're reading this and nodding your head, your next DAW is Presonus Studio One. I ended up purchasing Cubase 9 and having their tech support just give up on helping me get it to run on my machine that runs three other Daws with zero issue. It was a great 10 year run with this software and maybe they'll catch up to their competition but given how little attention they pay to loyal customers I wouldn't bet on it.

    Excellent Recording/Composition Software

    Posted by J on Mar 27th 2012

    Been using Cubase for years and it gets more stable and useful with each release. The 6.5 VST synth add-ons sound really nice. The program is not single-window like ableton and others which I prefer. In terms of midi composition and editing, it has no peers. Audio editing is on par with Pro Tools. 64bit works great.

    No Competition

    Posted by Frank on Jan 11th 2012

    Don't believe the hype that Protools is the only game in town! I've been using Cubase since 95 on an Atari ST and it keeps getting better and better. I have no complaints. Steinberg continually stays ahead of the curve with each release and this is no exception. Their version of Auto-tune is built in on the version and you can even program cc changes for each individual note! Nobody has that yet:) Get some!
