Steinberg Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7 now shipping

Steinberg has released Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7, two new versions of the highly acclaimed Cubase music production system for recording, editing, mixing and producing music to the highest standards.

Steinberg Cubase 7 / Cubase Artist 7

The new mixing facilities feature the MixConsole including full-screen mode and scalability plus Channel Zones, A/B comparison, global bypass on effects and plug-in search for a high level of user customization. The newly developed channel strip comes with several filters, noise gate, the four-band StudioEQ, three compressors, a spectrum analyzer, tube/tape saturation, a brickwall limiter and maximize. The Channel Settings window is redesigned to provide easy access to all channel parameters, such as input metering and routing assignments, alongside the Remote Control Editor for easy mapping of plug-in parameters to external controllers. Also available in Cubase 7 are Voxengo’s CurveEQ, EBU R128 standard compliant loudness metering and the latest version of MixConvert.

Other musical highlights in Cubase 7 are Chord Track, a dedicated track for identifying the music’s harmony structure and providing chord and scale information to both MIDI and audio tracks processed with VariAudio, and these in return automatically follow any harmonic adjustments in Chord Track. VariAudio is exclusively available in Cubase and now runs hand in hand with Chord Track for editing multiple parts within a single editor and harmonizing lead vocals in choral arrangements, while Chord Assistant bridges chords and generates harmonic chord progressions. Hermode tuning is included in both Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7. Newly introduced samples, loops and presets round out the extensive spectrum of sounds.

More features and enhancements focus around the performance of Cubase. ASIO-Guard improves stability and prevents data dropouts, while the-start mode disables user preferences temporarily. Finding tracks and channels in large projects is facilitated through the keyword-oriented search engine. MemZap stores positions and zoom factors within the project at any particular time. The Steinberg Hub comprises an enhanced Project Assistant plus additional information services, such as news and a regularly updated list of video tutorials. For peer-to-peer collaboration in real time, VST Connect SE features talkback and chat functionality as well as video and audio streaming over the Internet.

The Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7 are available to purchase for the suggested retail price of 599 EUR / 299 EUR respectively. Prices including German VAT. Various boxed and downloadable updates and upgrades are also available from resellers and through the Steinberg Online Shop.

Customers who have activated Cubase 6.5 and Cubase Artist 6.5 since October 25, 2012, are eligible for a free, downloadable Grace Period update to the latest version.

9 Soundware releases 1.316 Seconds channel strip settings for Sculpture

Titled after the Guinness World Record for the shortest song ever recorded (“You Suffer” by Napalm Death), 1.316 Seconds by 9 Soundware is a collection of Sculpture-based Channel Strip setting files for Apple Logic Pro inspired by extreme music.

9Soundware 1.316 Seconds

Combining the string/exciter paradigm of Sculpture with the signal-contorting resources of Logic Pro, the sound set is composed of simulations and abstractions of instrumentation associated with stupendously aggressive, challenging works.

1.316 Seconds is composed of 5 categories, “Down-tuned Guitar”, “Down-tuned Bass”, “Blast Beat”, “Death Growl”, and “Microsong”, each of which consists of 10 Channel Strip settings. Featuring .cst files designed to simulate machine gun-like mechanical riffs, as well as sustained chords, central to the sound set is “Down-tuned Guitar”. When sequenced with consecutive fifths and parallel octaves, using palm mute and sustaining sounds in conjunction, these Channel Strip settings allow for mockups of simple phrases. “Down-tuned Bass” is based on the timbres of grotesquely distorted, droning bass guitars. Similarly, parallel octaves allow for the balance between tonality and cacophony when using these .cst files. The “Blast Beat” Channel Strip settings are abstractions of the blistering noise associated with the drumming technique. While the sound design behind this category is largely conceptual (; not emblematic of drum kits), snare drums can be modeled by layering multiple Channel Strip settings (in particular Blast Beat 08.cst and Down-tuned Bass 09.cst). Comparably nonfigurative, the “Death Growl” noise instruments impressionistically portray guttural vocals. These .cst files are designed for performance in tandem with the modulation wheel. Finally, the “Microsong” Channel Strip settings produce bursts of rhythmic and randomly shifting timbres driven by LFO modulation.

1.316 Seconds is available to purchase for $14.99 USD.

Timo Wildenhain, product marketing manager at Steinberg, commented: “Nuendo 6 is the culmination of many months of research, development and cooperation. With great new features like our new mixing console, IOSONO’s Anymix Pro, loudness metering and the complete ADR taker solution, we’re sure to have addressed the ever changing needs of Nuendo post-professionals around the globe.”

Among the new features presented in Nuendo 6 is the entirely new mixing console with full-screen mode and scalability, including Insert View for displaying activated insert slots, plug-in and channel search and integrated Control Room. Also on board is the brand-new channel strip boasting high-pass and low-pass filters, a noise gate that supports sidechaining, various compressors and a brickwall limiter. Nuendo 6 comes with the newly designed Channel Settings window providing immediate access to channel parameters, MixConvert v6 for individual downmixing in unprecedented quality and Voxengo’s 64-band CurveEQ. With the IOSONO Anymix Pro 1.3 plug-in, Nuendo 6 now provides automatic EQ and loudness adjustments to surround sound signal panning and allows for quality upmixing up to 8.1 surround sound. Also included are EBU R128 standard compliant loudness metering with RMS metering scales and the Loudness Lane for writing the loudness curve on an individual track while Nuendo’s new ADR taker system offers a comprehensive solution for ADR and language dubbing. Other additions are MemZap to store and recall zoom settings and positioning within the project, VST Connect SE for collaborating over the Internet and Remote Control Editor for easy mapping of effect and instrument parameters to external controllers. Remote Control Editor supports Avid System 5 MC, Avid Artist Series, Mackie Control, WK-Audio ID Console, Yamaha DM2000 and many more. A redesigned user interface, VariAudio 2.0, ASIO-Guard with drop-out prevention algorithms to guarantee optimum performance and a 1.5 GB library by Pro Sound Effects ranging from animal to war effect sounds complement the wealth of features newly introduced to the Nuendo 6 advanced post and audio production system.

Nuendo 6 has been tested on professional HP Z workstations for maximum reliability and certified performance.

Nuendo 6 is at the heart of the Nuage system solution, a novel platform for post-production introduced by Yamaha and Steinberg. The dedicated control surface, audio interface hardware and Nuendo 6 are interlinked to allow for custom configurations.

The optional Nuendo 6 Expansion Kit (NEK) comprises features that turn Nuendo into a fully fledged composing application. Included are the new Chord Track, which detects and modifies the harmony structure of MIDI and audio tracks edited in VariAudio, and Chord Assistant, newly introduced to bridge chords and generate harmonic chord progressions. Further additions are Hermode tuning for dynamic retuning in real time, 300 new instrument sounds for HALion Sonic SE and the Retrologue virtual-analog and Padshop granular synthesizers.

Nuendo 6 and the Nuendo 6 Expansion Kit will be available in the first quarter of 2013 at authorized Yamaha resellers and through the Steinberg Online Shop, for a suggested retail price of 1,699 EUR for Nuendo 6 and 249 EUR for the Nuendo 6 Expansion Kit. Prices including German VAT.
