Steinberg Cubase Pro 13 for Windows

Do you want to start making your music, take your production to a professional level, or streamline your workflow on a tight deadline? Whatever you need, Cubase will help you unleash your full creative potential. From Hollywood blockbuster composers and Billboard Hot 100 producers to passionate newcomers, the music production world trusts the comprehensive feature set, easy-to-use tools, and unrivaled sound of our award-winning music production software.

Cubase 13 gets a new channels tab in the project window, a redesigned mixer interface, new effects and other changes.

The main innovation of the update is the Channel Tab in the project window. With its help, users can mix a track and manage tracks in the mixer without closing the arrangement window. According to the developers, the tab significantly increases the efficiency of work.

The changes also affected the main Mix Console window. The console interface became cleaner and simpler, it lost unnecessary visual elements and became easier to perceive, the company noted.

The Key Editor and Drum Editor now feature the Range Tool. For example, users can select a range to edit, copy, and paste. Cubase 13 Pro adds a redesigned track display and the ability to edit information in multiple parts of a part at once.

A new Vocal Chain plug-in has been added to the program, which is a chain of effects “for fast vocal processing.” The developers noted that the chain combines “the most important vocal effects” within a single plug-in, making it possible to mix the voice with one process.

Cubase 13 also features the Chord Pads tool for quickly creating chord progressions. Users can specify the key and character of the music themselves, after which the system will select various progressions based on the settings. The tool’s database contains a collection of presets for a quick start and a set of compositional structures that simplify arrangement planning.

The Sampler Track plugin has also been changed. In particular, the instrument now has a spectrum deformation mode for “interesting and unexpected transformations” of samples.

The developers noted that they have improved the Step Input and MIDI Input functions, making them more productive. For example, users can now change the duration of notes in real-time and add additional voices, as well as enter information in polyphonic mode. At the same time, MIDI event input has been simplified for faster and easier editing of notes.

In the video area, a new duplicate feature has been added, allowing you to store different versions of a single audio track within a video project. Users can also now export an audio track from a working video file, allowing you to unload audio content without rendering the entire video file.

Cubase 13 also received several playback start modes: for example, in the project settings, you can specify the behavior of the locator and the program when starting playback. Depending on the specified settings, the workstation will start playback from the beginning of the project, from the last position of the locator, from the beginning of the cycle, or other places.

The Transport Bar now has a Tap Tempo function for changing the project tempo — you can specify the tempo yourself by setting the required speed with mouse clicks. The tracks also have a quick channel configuration change button for switching between mono and stereo. Finally, the program now supports vertical zoom in all windows: to zoom in, hold down Shift+Ctrl or Shift+Cmd and turn the mouse wheel forward or backward.

Another important innovation is the new Key Command dialog box for managing keyboard shortcuts and shortcuts. The window supports dynamic content filtering and macros for quick search and assignment of commands. It is noted that the total number of shortcuts has been increased – the program can now quickly rename selected events, add or activate markers, move ranges and perform other tasks via keyboard shortcuts.

Other changes include full compatibility of Cubase 13 with the MIDI 2.0 standard and the ability to assign instrument track returns, racks and samplers as inputs to audio tracks, effect tracks and group channels. The program also received support for efficient window management technologies available in Windows 11.

As for the content catalog, Steinberg Cubase 13 has been expanded with new sounds and effects. The program has been updated with the Iconica Sketch orchestral library for “creating fully orchestral sketches and soundtracks.” The 5 GB library includes 34 instruments and over 140 articulations and is positioned by the developers as a full-fledged orchestra, available to Cubase users out of the box.

A vocoder with 24 processing bands has been added to the effects database. The effect supports sidechain and is equipped with many different parameters that expand the capabilities of the vocoder and allow you to create not only classic robotic voices, but also more non-standard signals (for example, these).

Cubase 13 Pro also received two new compressors – Black Valve and VoxComp. The first is described as “an emulation of the famous tube compressor”, and the second – is a special effect designed only for processing vocals. According to the authors, VoxComp is capable of significantly expanding and improving vocal mixes created in the program.

Other newcomers are two equalizers, the EQ-P1A and EQ-M5. Both effects mimic the performance of Pultec devices and are available in the Artist and Pro editions. Three new demo projects have also been added to the program, including projects featuring compositions by Austin Hull and Azodi.
