Steinberg has announced the release of Cubase 11, a major update that comes with a vast range of workflow and performance improvements, as well as exciting new ways to find inspiration and improve your productions.
Cubase 11 delivers myriad workflow and performance improvements across the entire range. Along with Cubase 11 Pro, Steinberg has also upgraded the smaller Artist and Elements editions: VariAudio 3, ARA 2 support and unlimited audio, MIDI and instrument tracks in Artist, and side-chain support in Elements.
Steinberg’s Senior Marketing Manager for Cubase, Matthias Quellmann, commented:
Cubase 11 is an outstanding release, which includes many enhancements and new features to make producing music easier, quicker and, yes, make Cubase more fun to use as well. We have been working closely with producers and composers to see what developments would enhance their workflow: some have a big impact on how one works in Cubase while others are small, detailed changes that make certain processes run just that much more smoothly.
Overall, Cubase 11 is an essential update for all Cubase users as well as being the ideal version for those looking to dive into the world of music production for the first time.
