Yet Cubase Pro 8 also offers novel ways of working with chords, superb virtual instruments and amps, outstanding FX plug-ins, and blends the latest audio technology with next-generation music tools to offer an exceptionally intuitive workflow.

    NEW in Cubase Pro 8

    Massive Engine Rebuild
    Cubase 8 is probably the most efficient, and fast DAW software available today. For this version Steinberg have completely rebuilt the entire engine that runs Cubase to make it much faster, more fluid, more snappy. During development, they set up pretty ambitious target benchmarks, and the results speak for themselves. Large projects open up to 4 times faster, the MixConsole twice as fast. The new audio engine now also means that even the most complex instruments and plug-ins run with stunning efficiency. This allows a lot lower latency while not out-powering your computer.

    ASIO Guard 2
    ASIO Guard 2 uses low latencies just on the tracks where latency matters while using a larger latency that saves performance for playback tracks. It now supports instrument tracks including multi-timbral and sample instruments that feature disk streaming. The internal ASIO-Guard buffering was extended to improve the audio processing performance. Simply record and monitor in real time even on CPU demanding projects.

    VCA Faders
    On analogue consoles, VCA faders enabled the control of channel gain by using DC voltage, allowing the movement of a group of faders using a single master fader. VCA faders in Cubase Pro 8 not only assist you creating complex mixes, it also enables more advanced automation workflows using the Combine VCA fader automation feature: merge the automation curve of a VCA fader with the automation curve of a controlled fader or fader groups.

    Direct Routing
    Cubase Pro 8 includes a new direct routing section in MixConsole that allows you to set up group routing destinations for multiple channels, buses and stems at once with a single click. Create different mix versions of any session at once.

    Improved Channel Strip EQ
    The channel strip EQ module provides additional mouse-over value readouts for gain, frequency and the equivalent in note pitch. Enter pitch notes or cent values instead of Hz frequencies for each band. The Pre section now offers selectable slopes of 6, 12 (default), 24, 36 and 48 for high-cut and low-cut.

    Virgin Territories
    Virgin territories in automation lanes improves handling of automation data: when activated, no automation data is written between two automated events on the same track, making it possible to freely use the space in between two automations for parameter adjustments.

    Wave Meters
    With the new Wave Meters in Cubase Pro 8, upcoming audio events are displayed with the respective waveforms, scrolling through the mixer pane above the volume fader. No longer switch back and forth between the Project window and MixConsole to find out the current song position and check upcoming audio events within the project.

    Dockable Instrument Rack and MediaBay
    MediaBay and the VST Instrument Rack can now be displayed to the right side of the Project window. The result is the new Rack Zone with improved efficiency, giving you more time to focus on your creative flow and reducing the number of open windows you need to manage.

    Redesigned Track List and Inspector
    The redesigned Track List and Inspector offer now better readability. Track names are easier to find and the reduced set of track controls in the track list reduce clutter.

    And with the new configuration tabs below the track list you can switch instantly between different track controls configurations. This displays only what you need to see in a specific workflow situation.

    Plug-in Manager
    The new plug-in manager lets you arrange, sort and group your effects and instruments either at the top level or in custom submenus, making finding your plug-ins easier and letting you focus on what's really important. Create multiple collections as sub-sets of all installed effect and instruments and switch easily between them!

    Improved Windows Handling
    Cubase 8 introduces a new windows handling paradigm including a new workspace organiser that makes for a more efficient workflow. Windows can be freely placed on any display and maximised, restored, minimised, tiled and cycled through by using standard Windows OS commands. Windows will now also group Cubase windows in the taskbar, preview window content and show mini icons. The 'Always On Top' mode now organises smaller plug-in windows even when working with maximised windows such the MixConsole.

    Render In-place
    The new render in-place function allows you to bounce MIDI and audio parts easily. You can define exactly on what to include and for example render-in track FX in the newly created events. Trigger the command and a new audio track is created with all effects settings copied over from the original source track plus your rendered audio event, including intact event boundaries.

    Chord Pads
    Chord pads are a great way to playfully and creatively compose with chords. Jam with chords and patterns in real time and remote control multiple parameters to change chords on the fly. The chord pads are playable via a MIDI keyboard and real-time parameters allow you to easily improvise chord performances by changing voicings, tensions and more as you go. Record your performance as MIDI events on any record-enabled MIDI or instrument track. Chord pads can also display a number of different chord symbol formats.

    New ircle of 5ths and Proximity Chord Assistant Modes
    You can visually select chords in the circle of 5th view or the new Proximity Assistant. The new Proximity Chord Assistant mode provides suggestions from a defined reference chord, taking a set of harmonic rules into account. The distance and colours of the suggestions from the reference chord (at the centre bottom of the window) convey a sense of how complex a suggestion is, in comparison to the reference chord. The circle of 5th mode shows you the chord relations as a classic circle of fifths visualisation. Best of all, these new visual modes of the Chord Assistant are also available directly from the new chord pads!

    MIDI Tempo Detection
    The new MIDI tempo detection allows you to jam along onto a MIDI track without rigidly following the metronome. Even though your recording is entirely out of sync with the grid and tempo track, the new tempo detect function will reconstruct any tempo change you did and align your performance to the grid for further editing!

    VST Connect SE 3
    VST Connect SE allows you to record audio and MIDI data over the internet. To make VST Connect SE even better, it now sports a redesigned graphic user interface and is fully integrated into Cubase, reducing the setup time and connection effort dramatically.
