Cubase IC Pro for Android

Steinberg has announced the immediate release of the Android version of Cubase iC Pro, an app for remote controlling the award-wining Cubase music production system via Wi-Fi.

“Since releasing Cubase iC Pro as iOS app, we’ve registered a massive demand to port the software to the Android environment. Cubase iC Pro for Android boasts the same feature set as the iOS version, offering users the ultimate possibility of remote controlling Cubase in many ways,” comments Carlos Mendoza Rohde, product marketing manager at Steinberg.

Cubase iC Pro comprises different screen configurations designed to leverage the real estate of large tablet displays but also to work nicely on smaller mobile devices. The project overview allows Cubase users to navigate quickly through the project with pinch-to-zoom functionality, change tempo and add markers. The transport section comes with playback controls and metronome. The channel mixer adjusts levels, panning, mute/solo, read/write automation and record arming for basic recordings. When running Cubase versions 7.5, 7 and 6.5 with Control Room capability, users are able to set up a maximum of four headphone cue-mixes, individually controlled by each Android device. The final feature provides customizable key commands and macros that allow users to assign virtually any command in Cubase to the controller, making it highly flexible and easy to use.

Cubase iC Pro has been tested with smartphones and tablets running Android versions 4.0.3, 4.0.4, 4.1.2 and 4.3. Cubase versions supporting Cubase iC Pro are Cubase versions 7.5, 7 and 6.5, Cubase Artist versions 7.5, 7 and 6.5 and Cubase LE, AI and Elements versions 7 and 6. Installing the Cubase iC Pro Remote Extension for Android is a requirement.

Cubase iC Pro is available as download through Google Play and the Amazon Appstore. The app can be downloaded for free, but the Cubase iC Pro Remote Extension for Android is required for the connection to Cubase and is available from the Steinberg Online Shop. The price for the component is 14.99 EUR including German VAT.

Steinberg updates Cubasis to v1.7, VST 3.6 SDK gets iOS support + free Nanologue synthesizer for iPad

Related: , , , , , , , Posted in news on Nov 22, 2013 - comment 0 comments

Steinberg has announced three iOS-related releases, comprising an update to its Cubasis multitouch sequencer for the iPad, iOS support for the VST 3.6 SDK, and the free Nanologue synthesizer for iPad.

Cubasis 1.7 is a free update now adding Inter-App Audio capability for routing and controlling audio between iOS apps in a single project. The newly available Software Development Kit (SDK) for version 3.6 of Steinberg’s Virtual Studio Technology (VST) allows deployment of iOS apps with Inter-App Audio and introduces many new enhancements. Nanologue is Steinberg’s latest iOS app for the iPad: a virtual-analog synthesizer for monophonic leads and basses.

Steinberg Nanalogue

Carlos Mendoza Rohde, product marketing manager at Steinberg, comments: “With Inter-App Audio introduced to iOS 7, we’ve been keen to implement this feature into Cubasis. While using the momentum, we added iOS support to our VST SDK and are providing an iPad synthesizer based on this technology for free!”

Adding full Inter-App Audio implementation to Cubasis 1.7 allows iOS apps with Inter-App Audio capability to be used as instruments on both audio and MIDI tracks. It is also possible to use compatible apps as insert or send effects within the Cubasis iOS digital audio workstation for the iPad.

Alongside the VST 2.4, VST 3 and Audio Unit formats, the new SDK for VST 3.6 now allows developers to compile the code for iOS compatibility with Inter-App Audio support, turning the VST development kit into a platform capable of outputting four acclaimed formats conveniently from one technology source. Other new features to the latest SDK release include enhancements to the VST 2 and Audio Unit wrappers, iOS support for the new 4.2 version of VSTGUI, Steinberg’s cross-platform C++ library for developing UI-based plug-ins, and a new validation tool for VST 3 host applications.

Based on this new SDK release, Nanologue is a virtual-analog monophonic synthesizer that can be used on the iPad as stand-alone app or together with a iOS host application via Inter-App Audio functionality, such as with the latest 1.7 update to Cubasis. Including 50 factory presets, Nanologue boasts a cross-modulation oscillator with two waveforms, glide, a VCF envelope, LFO, delay and a filter section with cutoff, resonance and distortion. User presets can be exported to the Retrologue VST instrument, included in Cubase 7, Cubase Artist 7, Cubase 6.5 and Cubase Artist 6.5.

Cubasis 1.7 is a free update available through the App Store on iTunes. The SDK for VST 3.6 is freely available from the Steinberg website. Nanologue is available as free App Store download on iTunes.

Steinberg releases Cubase iC Air gesture control for Cubase

Steinberg Cubase iC Air

Steinberg has announced the release of Cubase iC Air, allowing users of Cubase 7 or Cubase Artist 7, together with Leap Motion Controller or Intel systems powered by the Intel Perceptual Computing SDK, to control Steinberg’s popular DAW intuitively by the command of gestures.

“With the advent of various gesture recognition technologies we’ve been looking into possibilities to control Cubase in a novel way by using simple hand gestures as an alternative control alongside the conventional mouse and keyboard — and Cubase iC Air is our first achievement in this field of research,” comments Shih Ming Law, key developer for Cubase iC Air.

Cubase iC Air embeds a control panel within Cubase 7 and Cubase Artist 7, giving visual feedback of the user’s hand gestures that are picked up by depth cameras from Leap Motion and Intel. Pre-programmed gestural commands allow the user to perform transport controls, such as start, stop, forward and rewind, to jump to the next or previous track, to audition through sections of audio and zoom in and out the arrangement.

By implementing a virtual version of Steinberg’s AI Knob, users are also able to control many other parameters of Cubase as well as VST 2.4 and VST 3 plug-ins through Cubase iC Air.

Intel global account manager Jean-Pierre Navarro says: “The great collaboration with Steinberg’s developer team helps get the most of the Intel platform and the Intel Perceptual Computing SDK. Cubase iC Air provides users with a new and exciting way of interaction. This is an entirely new way of experiencing music.”

Cubase iC Air is a software component that requires Cubase 7 or Cubase Artist 7 as host application and a Leap Motion Controller or depth camera run by the Intel Perceptual Computing SDK.

Cubase iC Air is available to download at no charge.
