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.
