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.

Steinberg launches VST Connect Pro – Remote multitrack recording

Steinberg VST Connect Pro

Steinberg has announced the release of VST Connect Pro, a fully featured remote recording solution for remote multitrack recording of audio and MIDI in premium sound quality.

“With VST Connect Pro, we’re convinced to be revolutionizing the way producers and musicians work together. In fact, the technology behind VST Connect delivers completely new approaches to producing music, triggering and recording instruments remotely, and cooperating with musicians and clients at a distance,” remarked Frank Simmerlein, marketing director at Steinberg.

VST Connect Pro offers encrypted transfer of real-time recordings through the internet and local area networks. While delivering immediate stereo recordings, up to 16 audio tracks are recorded in the background in uncompressed, high resolution.

Compatible with Cubase 7, VST Connect Pro establishes a peer-to-peer connection with the free client-side application, VST Connect Performer. During remote recording sessions, users of both software applications can adjust the cue mix and talkback levels, as well as communicate via video link.

With the release of VST Connect Pro, Steinberg also introduces Studio Pass, the free iOS app for VST Connect that lets users dial into the recording session with an iPhone or iPad.

VST Connect Pro features

  • Collaborate with other musicians and producers around the world.
  • Peer-to-peer solution with sample accurate sync.
  • MIDI support for sending and receiving MIDI data to your recording counterpart.

Advanced Audiowaves updates Track Align Pro to v1.2.0

Advanced Waves has released version 1.2.0 of Track Align Pro, a VST plug-in for Mac allowing to time align an audio track to a reference one in real-time.

Advanced Audiowaves Track Align Pro

TAP processing is looking at each sample of the incoming audio signal and find its position in relation to the side-chain reference track exactly like any audio engineer would do by zooming inside the audio waveforms. But instead of just looking to the first samples or first audio transients to save time, TAP processes the input audio along the full length of the track in order to keep it always aligned.

Changes in Track Align Pro v1.2.0

  • Steinberg Cubase 7.0.6 & Nuendo 6.0.6 official support.
  • Mac OS X 10.9 Mavericks ready.
  • Lastest detection engine refinements.
  • Improved audio signal discrimination between similar and unrelated audio signals.
  • New side-chain led red state when audio signal is unrelated to audio input.
  • Fix wrong audio buffer at end of audio clips on silent or inactive audio track.
  • Improved delay changes when audio track is silent or inactive.
  • Graphical user interface code redesign for better performance.
  • Fix initial graphical user interface state.
  • Fix possible lock of graphical user interface.
  • Fix – known issue – graphical user interface crash when closing a project.
  • Latest iLok protection and activation.

Track Align Pro for Mac (VST) is available to purchase for 219 EUR. Requires iLok.
