Massive engine rebuild
Cubase 8 is probably the most efficient DAW software available today. For this version we completely rebuilt the entire engine that runs Cubase to make it much faster, more fluid, more snappy. During development, we set up pretty ambitious target benchmarks, and the results speak for themselves.
ASIO Guard 2
ASIO Guard 2 uses low latencies just on the tracks where latency matters while using a larger latency that saves performance for playback tracks. It now supports instrument tracks including multi-timbral and sample instruments that feature disk streaming. The internal ASIO-Guard buffering was extended to improve the audio processing performance. Simply record and monitor in real time even on CPU demanding projects
Cubase Pro 8 includes a new direct routing section in MixConsole that allows you to set up group routing destinations for multiple channels, buses and stems at once with a single click. Create different mix versions of any session at once.
Improved channel strip EQ
The channel strip EQ module provides additional mouse-over value readouts for gain, frequency and the equivalent in note pitch. Enter pitch notes or cent values instead of Hz frequencies for each band. The Pre section now offers selectable slopes of 6, 12 (default), 24, 36 and 48 for high-cut and low-cut.
Virgin territories in automation lanes improves handling of automation data: when activated, no automation data is written between two automated events on the same track, making it possible to freely use the space in between two automations for parameter adjustments.
With the new Wave Meters in Cubase Pro 8, upcoming audio events are displayed with the respective waveforms, scrolling through the mixer pane above the volume fader. No longer switch back and forth between the Project window and MixConsole to find out the current song position and check upcoming audio events within the project.
Dockable Instrument rack and MediaBay
MediaBay and the VST Instrument Rack can now be displayed to the right side of the Project window. The result is the new Rack Zone with improved efficiency, giving you more time to focus on your creative flow and reducing the number of open windows you need to manage.
Improved windows handling
Cubase 8 introduces a new windows handling paradigm including a new workspace organizer that makes for a more efficient workflow. Windows can be freely placed on any display and maximized, restored, minimized, tiled and cycled through by using standard Windows OS commands. Windows will now also group Cubase windows in the taskbar, preview window content and show mini icons. The “Always On Top” mode now organizes smaller plug-in windows even when working with maximized windows such the MixConsole.
A legend returns! Quadrafuzz v2 allows you to distort up to four bands individually, while maintaining full control over harmonic distortion and some fairly nifty band-based delay effects. Letting you dial in anything from a dark, fat fuzz with huge amounts of bit-crushing distortion and delay, to a bright, almost acousticsounding warm crunch, Quadrafuzz v2 is your go-to distortion unit for just about any instrument or sound. This design is based on Craig Anderton’s original Quadrafuzz and has received an official “Yeah!” from the man himself.
Multiband Envelope Shaper*
The Multiband Envelope Shaper helps bringing out the details on a drum mix, mastering tasks and creative sound (re- )shaping. It splits the incoming audio material into a maximum of four frequency bands and allows you to freely alter the attack and release characteristic of each band to rework the transient structure.
New Circle of 5ths and Proximity Chord Assistant modes
You can visually select chords in the circle of 5th view or the new Proximity Assistant.* The new Proximity Chord Assistant mode provides suggestions from a defined reference chord, taking a set of harmonic rules into account. The distance and colors of the suggestions from the reference chord (at the center bottom of the window) convey a sense of how complex a suggestion is, in comparison to the reference chord. The circle of 5th mode shows you the chord relations as a classic circle of fifths visualization. Best of all, these new visual modes of the Chord Assistant are also available directly from the new chord pads!
