Recording Store

Cubase Artist 6 from Steinberg is a native music production system for Mac OS X and Windows 7 tailored to creative artists looking to combine the newest technologies with a vast range of musical features. Like its past incarnations, the software combines audio and MIDI recording and editing, virtual instruments and powerful audio mixing, with the added flexibility of loop- and pattern-based arranging and mixing. Version 6 delivers another round of significant new features and upgrades.

The software includes a huge set of VST MIDI plug-ins and creative tools such as the drum step sequencer, the Beat Designer, a powerful arpeggiator, a MIDI pattern sequencer and a MIDI chord processor, and more. The Cubase Sample Editor allows for almost limitless creative freedom while editing audio with a full editing toolset that offers a huge range of functions. The VST Amp Rack plug-in includes a wide array of amplifier emulations, while the HALion Sonic SE and LoopMash 2 virtual instruments provide an easy way for song writing and loop melding.

The new take-comping system enhances usability as does the redesigned user interface. Please refer to the feature set to get a complete overview of everything the software can do. Cubase Artist 6 has taken the concept of a complete virtual studio (in the box) to levels that were only a dream a decade ago. The software is the perfect choice for talented newcomers and seasoned musicians alike, with the user only needing to supply a computer, an I/O interface and monitoring to have access to virtually every tool possible for creating professional audio.

What's New in Cubase Artist 6
Drum Editing (Faster with Less Clicks)

Intelligent Transient Detection


  • Based on a state-of-the-art algorithm
  • Finding all drum hits is easy with intuitive preview feature and two specialized filters, called Peak and Beats
  • Detect single hits, rolls and ghost notes faster and more accurate than before
  • After the transients have been detected they are merged across multiple tracks by taking user definable priority of individual tracks into account
  • The drum hits are then cut up and grouped together ready for detailed tweaking - in this way, copying a great fill from verse 2 to verse 1 is solved with minimum effort - select one, move them all

Straightforward Drum Replacement

  • Hitpoint-to-MIDI function makes it very easy to replace, double or enrich live-recorded drum sounds
  • When the transients have been detected, a single click on the Create MIDI Notes button creates a MIDI track containing a MIDI note for each single drum hit
  • It's then up to the user which sampler or synthesizer they want to fuel with the note - one choice could be the included Groove Agent ONE drum sampler

  • When recording several takes, the software instantly creates a Lane Track for each take
