Steinberg Cubase 6.5 DAW at a Glance:
Cubase 6.5 introduces a new generation of powerful music production tools
Cubase 6.5 introduced some of Steinberg's most significant jumps in development to date, coving all aspects of the DAW from synths and processors to powerful workflow enhancements. Two new synths, the Padshop granular synthesis engine and the Retrologue analog modeling synth let you spice up your tunes with new sonic flavor. New filters and EQ styles also let you manipulate your sounds in fun and exciting ways, while Amp Rack 1.5 turns up the heat for any guitarists.
By fusing Cubase 6.5's hitpoint and AudioWarp systems together, Steinberg also made it incredibly easy to non-destructively quantize and groove-lock your tracks and loops together. Finally, there's Cubase 6.5's Intercommunication 2.0 system, which lets you upload your tracks straight to SoundCloud and take full advantage of the FLAC lossless compression codec. Top it off with 64-bit ReWire support, and you've got all the reasons you need to step up to Cubase 6.5.
Built-in tempo detection and time manipulation tools let you do more in your DAW
Advanced tempo detection lets you instantly tempo map your session to imported audio files. This same technology also drives Cubase 6.5's beat detection, which gives you pin-point accurate beat slicing and drum replacement resources. Slice up and quantize individual tracks, or use this powerful tool across your entire session to lock your recording to the beat.
Multitrack editing tools make producing smooth and polished audio a snap
Cubase 6.5's Lane Track arrangement is super-useful tool for creating smooth comps out of multiple takes. You simply start by recording multiple takes on a single track in separate lanes. Then you use the Lane Track arrangement tools to select the best parts of each take and instantly combine them into a single dynamic track. On top of that Cubase 6.5 also lets you take full advantage of Steinberg's most advanced multitrack audio editing and quantization tool to date, making it easier than ever to get fully polished results.

Music Background: Music is in the forefront
by Alex Kroupa from United StatesThis software has so many features. After having been a Cubase user for many years I still believe this is a far superior DAW, even compared to Protools.

Streamlined Workflow and Unified Appearance
by Matt Bostater from Fort Wayne, IN USAI must say that Cubase 6 tightens up nearly everything I have been using in the program. This release just seems to unify many of the interface elements Steinberg had introduced in other versions of C... read more [+]ubase. It is obvious that they have been paying attention to increased creative workflow. In particular, creating a tempo track with Cubase 6 is a breeze. I work with many recordings of live shows, being able to lock Cubase to the tempo of the songs has really made it easier to get in and edit quickly. With Cubase 6, I feel that Steinberg has used their considerable history to create a product that feels dependable for professional use and conducive to the creative process. As a mixer I cannot think of higher praise! close [-]

Steinberg Got It Right With This Sixy Update
by Ahmad Washington from TexasI have been using Cubase since SX3. I was not using it by choice, but because I did not have the money for Pro Tools and did not know about Logic. After going through a few different DAWS I settled ... read more [+]in Logic Pro and loved it. Still had Cubase on my Mac but was having so many problems with it crashing and freezing that I stopped using it. They issued a 5.5.3 update and it's been running smoothly on my iMac so I took the plunge into Cubase 6 because I am primarily a midi sequencer rather than Hardware user. I am so glad I made this upgrade. LoopMash 2 is simply ADDICTIVE! There should be a reality rehab show on LoopMash 2 addicts. They made some much needed improvements on that. The Drum replacement feature is the quickest and most seamless experience I have had with wanting to audition deferent drum sounds but still keep the original groove of the loop that was recorded or imported. Halion Sonic SE is finally the right primary sound source for this DAW. Halion One of the previous two versions was well intended but fell short. However, with Halion Sonic SE the sounds programed by the Yamaha sound designers and the VST expressions integration and other Motif workstation like features I can finally have a pallete of radio ready sounds to use out the box without having to always pull in 3rd party plugins, not that it's a bad thing. The new layout takes some minor getting used to, but it all makes sense for those who have been using Cubase and it all flows. The drag and drop features using Media Bay and it's integration with LoopMash2 and Groove Agent One. I could go on and on about what I am impressed with about this upgrade, but I will just say, if you already have Cubase 4 or 5, this is a small investment to make in order to experience some BIG improvements in the premiere music production program! close [-]

Overall it's pretty awesome
by Steve Diguer from Los Angeles. CAReally powerful... I recently made the switch to Pro Tools 10 but I had to come back.

I use the 64 bit version in Windows 7 64 bit and it is 100% stable for me. Certain things still work better for me in Pro Tools (mainly elastic audio, and I still find the beat detection is superior) so I find myself switching back and forth. But yeah... it's hard not to be blown away by this latest version. close [-]
