The new major release boasts new feature additions and many improvements to ensure smooth workflows
With version 12, every member of the Cubase family, from the high-end Pro edition to Artist and the entrylevel Elements edition, introduces significant new features and workflow enhancements. With a comprehensive set of efficient tools, all editions set the benchmark for modern music
productions, with a sound quality that remains second to none.
One of the highlights in Cubase 12 is enhanced controller support. All three editions integrate MIDI controllers seamlessly into the world of Cubase 12 by automatically detecting selected controllers and providing enhanced options for mapping external devices. Talking of seamless, working with the Chord Track has been improved by allowing audio events to be dragged and dropped to provide MIDI chord progressions for audio. Other new features introduced both in Cubase Pro and Cubase Artist are the Scale Assistant in VariAudio for Page 2 of 4 easy pitch edits and timing corrections, as well as the brand-new FX Modulator which comprises an array of effect modules alongside a comprehensive envelope editor.
Exclusively available in Cubase Pro 12, the new Raiser limiter is the latest addition to the arsenal of dynamics processing tools that Cubase has to offer. AudioWarp improvements, on the other hand, are shared across both Pro and Artist, with the included Free Warp tool for making timing corrections for multiple tracks simultaneously within the Project window. Common to the entire Cubase family are editing workflow improvements and near sample accurate volume automation, which is no longer affected by the set buffer size.
With new improvements and presets, the Logical Editors allow users to create and customize the powerful logical capabilities available in Cubase Pro. Other additions include Dolby Atmos support (available soon in an upcoming Cubase maintenance release) and several features previously only available in Nuendo, such as providing two video tracks and more. Now also in Cubase Pro 12 and Cubase Artist 12, Verve is the new felt piano recorded at the Yamaha Studios in Los Angeles.
