Steinberg Cubasis for iOS

Steinberg has announced version 1.7.1 of Cubasis, a streamlined, multitouch sequencer app for iPad.

Steinberg announces today the release of a maintenance update for its Cubasis app.

This maintenance update solves many user-reported issues and is highly recommended for all users of Cubasis.

Changes in Cubasis v1.7.1

  • Solves a rare issue where triggering MIDI notes frequently on an instrument assigned via Core MIDI lead to hanging notes.
  • Fixes a rare phenomenon where MIDI port list popups appeared continuously.
  • Solves an issue where the attack and release values were reseted to their defaults when switching between projects.
  • Solves a rare problem where executing a mixdown of a project that contained IAA instruments lead to oversized audio files.
  • Moving the pan fader while playback is running no longer leads to audio dropouts.
  • Executing a FLAC mixdown of the same project no longer overwrites the previous audio file without notice.
  • IAA audio file naming has been corrected to allow projects to be imported in Cubase without the need to locate IAA audio files manually.
  • MIDI events with a huge number of notes no longer renders Cubasis unreliable.
  • Corrects an issue where a wrong instrument was highlighted in the Media Bay after an instrument was changed in Microsonic.
  • The effect status in the inspector now gets updated correctly by tapping its edit button.
  • Fixes a rare phenomenon where switching instruments while playing could lead to hanging notes.
  • Solves the issue where tapping the panic button did not reset hanging notes of an IAA instrument app.
  • Switching projects quickly that contain IAA instruments no longer renders Cubasis unreliable.
  • The playable keyboard range now updates correctly after an instrument is changed.

Cubasis for iPad is available to purchase for $49.99 USD. The Cubasis 1.7.1 update can now be downloaded on the Apple App Store.

Steinberg VST

Steinberg has announced that they will no longer offer the Software Development Kit (SDK) for VST 2 through the Steinberg website.

“We introduced VST 2 back in 1999 and since then the technology has evolved dramatically. Since 2008, we’ve been providing SDKs for both the newer, third version alongside the older VST 2 format,” comments Timo Wildenhain, product marketing manager at Steinberg.

Steinberg host applications remain VST 2 compatible, but maintenance and technical support for VST 2 officially ended in September. Steinberg wants to focus their efforts entirely on the development of VST 3. The latest SDK renders software in VST 3.x, VST 2.x and AU format.

Timo Wildenhain continues: “The VST interface is extremely popular throughout the world of music production and recording, and the latest enhancements in VST 3.6, such as Inter-App Audio compatibility, pave the way for an even wider acceptance.”

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.

Patchpool intros Sonic Cinema for HALion 5

Patchpool Sonic Cinema

Patchpool has announced Sonic Cinema, a sound library for the HALion 5 instrument from Steinberg.

This sound library comprises dozens of cinematic soundscapes, evocative pads and musical textures designed for producing epic soundtracks, ambient music and anything that needs inspiring sonic ingredients beyond the ordinary.

Sonic Cinema also contains dark cinematic brass instruments made with/derived from sampled instruments like the sousaphone, trombone, euphonium and french horn which were exclusively recorded for this library, mainly in a dry studio environment. Some of the french horn recordings were conducted in a church.

The patches will combine HALions outstanding granular engine, the normal sampling mode and the very versatile synth module. Eight Macros and the Modwheel are programmed for each preset to enable the user to deeply interact with the sounds, some patches also use Aftertouch, Sphere-modulation, FlexPhrasers and keyswitches.

The library will be distributed as a protected HALion sound-archive for the sample content and tagged vst3-presets.

The soundset will comprise ~100 presets (2.5 to 3GB of samples) and is scheduled for release in January 2014. A pre-order of the library is now available for 44 EUR, a 20% discount on the regular price of 55 EUR.

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.
