About the software
Cubase is a digital audio workstation (DAW) developed by Steinberg for music and MIDI recording, arranging and editing. The first version, which was originally only a MIDI sequencer and ran on the Atari ST computer, was released in 1989. Cut-down versions of Cubase are included with almost all Yamaha audio and MIDI hardware, as well as hardware from other manufacturers. These versions can be upgraded to a more advanced version at a discount.
The main Highlights of Steinberg Cubase Elements are:
- In the basic channel strip version, just like in the advanced version, you can assign modules directly to the specific channel. However, the basic version does not offer the full effects palette. Cubase AI and LE users have an even more streamlined version of the Channel Strip. The full range offered by the advanced channel strip can be found in Cubase Pro and Cubase Artist.
- This inspiring tool helps you compose music quickly and creatively. It is very easy to get “stuck” when writing chord progressions but, with the fast and easy-to-use Chord Pads, fresh inspiration will always be close at hand. Jam with chords and patterns in real time and control multiple parameters to change chords as you go. The chord pads are playable via a MIDI controller and real-time parameters allow you to easily improvise chord performances by changing voicings, tensions and much more while you are letting the music and inspiration carry you along!
- Take any piece of audio and use it to create a Sampler Track. You can then play the sample chromatically and manipulate it with the onboard filters, controls and two LFOs, experimenting to come up with new and innovative ideas. Slicing mode chops up your loops so they’re ready-to-play with just a click while, for the 808 lovers, there’s the mono legato glide!
