Steinberg has announced — and will release tomorrow (December 4) — Cubase 7.5, the latest version of their flagship music creation DAW. Among the new enhancements in Cubase 7.5 are:
TrackVersions — Create, rename, and manage parallel versions of the same track or tracks and use them to compare takes or create alternative versions of your recordings while keeping all track settings.
Track Visibility Management — Cubase 7.5 now offers a track visibility management feature that greatly expedites working with huge projects by dynamically displaying only the tracks you actually want to see.
Instant Transient Navigation — With the new instant hitpoint navigation function, you can “tab to transients” on audio events in the Project window.
Re-record mode — A familiar scenario: you hit the record button, grab your guitar or start singing and after the first note you know immediately that you can perform the part better. You want to repeat the take immediately. With Cubase 7.5, simply hit the record button again and the recording will start from the original position preserving the original pre-count and metronome settings. A handy, time-saving new feature that’s as simple as it is useful.
Next Generation HALion Sonic SE 2 — HALion Sonic SE 2 is a compact version of the next incarnation of Steinberg’s acclaimed HALion Sonic sample player and synthesizer, and delivers a range of sumptuous new sounds and instruments for Cubase.
