    The affordable way to dive into the world of Cubase 6.

    With its comprehensive tools for composing, recording, editing, and mixing, Cubase Elements 6 is the most desirable entryway to the world of Cubase. This eminently powerful collection of quality instruments and effects modifies your PC and Mac computer into your personal music production system for crafting compositions to minute detail, making studio-grade recordings for band practices as well as everything in between. And, with the same professional user interface and award-winning audio engine as in Steinberg’s Cubase 6 flagship, the Elements version boasts all the tools of the trade at an irresistible price.

    MIDI-Sequencing
    At the heart of MIDI sequencing in Cubase Elements 6 is the Key Editor: a breathtakingly powerful, yet transparent, tool which offers functional wealth that opens up virtually limitless possibilities for songwriters and composers. This is where melodies, chords, arrangements, and performances take shape, and where ideas are sketched out, developed and taken to their full potential. Entering, cutting, moving, and transposing individual notes or whole chords, editing any of the hundreds of MIDI parameters available or reworking even the most subtle nuances of a MIDI performance are just some of the tasks for which the Key Editor has been developed and refined continuously by Steinberg for over two decades. The Key Editor’s Inspector provides smooth and intuitive access to the most important MIDI tools and functions, including Quantize, Transpose, Length, and many more in one central spot.

    Mix Like Professionals
    With 24 physical inputs and outputs, 8 insert effect slots per channel, 8 FX send and return channels, as well as 16 groups/busses and an unrivaled routing between audio channels, busses, groups, and FX returns mean that Cubase Elements 6 is fully equipped to master even demanding situations, like the recording of a whole band. The system-wide automatic latency compensation synchronizes all audio streams in your system automatically.

    The Score Editor
    The Score Editor in Cubase Elements 6 is a streamlined and simplified, yet powerful notation environment derived from bigger Cubase versions. Completely integrated within Cubase Essential, the Score Editor lets you view and edit music in the form of scores. A few clicks are all it takes to adapt the view to show recorded MIDI performances correctly and print them on demand for others including soloists, orchestras, and choirs. Handy functions such as display quantization and transposition make this task even easier.

    Editing
    The Cubase Sample Editor offers creative freedom while editing audio. A full editing toolset provides a huge range of functions that not only cover common editing tasks right down to the sample level. The loop functions are a boon for anyone using loops in their project, including fully automatic hit-point recognition and excellent beat-slicing.

    Innovative Instruments that put creativity first
    Cubase Elements 6 delivers three exceptional rich virtual instruments right out of the box. Over 550 mind-blowing presets spanning across the HALion Sonic SE virtual instrument, the Prologue synthesizer, and the MPC-style Groove Agent ONE drum machine

    HALion Sonic SE
    HALion Sonic SE is a streamlined version of HALion Sonic, Steinberg’s premier VST workstation. Incorporating the same pristine audio and synth engine as its award-winning brother, HALion Sonic SE offers tight integration with Cubase Elements 6 and production-ready sounds and instruments that will truly inspire your creative work. Equipped with detailed acoustic instruments and brilliant synthesizers, the SE version is an extensive pool of sounds for everyday studio work. Intuitive handling, instant playability and VST 3.5 support make this new instrument the perfect choice for productive songwriting or just playing along.

    Groove Agent ONE
    Groove Agent ONE pairs powerful drum sampling with detailed sound shaping — seamlessly integrated into Cubase. Not only does it boast sliced loop and MPC-import, but rocks right out of the box with its own custom library of only the finest acoustic, urban, hip-hop, and dance drum kits. Each of its virtual pads features a complete sound processing section that gives full control of textures, timbres, and expressive qualities of each drum sound. Creation of custom kits with drag-and-drop from the MediaBay allows an extremely fluid and easy workflow.

    Prologue
    Prologue is a polyphonic subtractive synthesizer with great sounding multi-mode variable resonance filters, powerful modulation capabilities, and cranking onboard effects. Powered by VirSyn technology, this punchy virtual analog synthesizer is fed by hundreds of great-sounding presets covering a wide range of sounds reaching from traditional analog to indescribable.

    Add outstanding effects to your music
    Cubase Elements 6 comes with an impressive arsenal of high-quality VST effect processors, including EQ, Dynamics, Modulation, Reverb, Filters, Distortion, and special effects. Cubase Elements 6 offers a total of 33 realtime audio effects right out of the box. Each comes with great-sounding presets, which really allow experiencing the excellent quality of these effects from the first moment on. They include:

    AmpSimulator
    AutoPan
    Bitcrusher
    Chopper
    Chorus

    MediaBay - Database for Sound Management
    To keep up with the ever-growing number of sounds, samples, loops, and presets, Cubase Elements 6 is equipped with a powerful media file management system known as MediaBay. MediaBay is the central place for browsing, searching, managing, and categorizing any type of media file. This includes audio and MIDI files, instrument, and plug-in presets, video data, and even project files.

    A user-friendly musical category search system helps finding sounds or loops fast. A Scope section features previewing options. Loops can be auditioned in the song’s tempo and conveniently imported using drag-and-drop.

    On-the-fly Pitch Correction
    Designed for vocal and solo instrument recordings, the new PitchCorrect VST 3 plug-in brings easy-and-automatic intonation control and scale correction of vocal- and monophonic-instrument recordings to Cubase. PitchCorrect is based on the acclaimed Yamaha Pitch Fix technology and constantly detects the pitch of the input material and immediately corrects it to match to the closest pitch of a user-specified scale, including minor, major, chromatic, and custom scales.

    AmpSimulator
    AmpSimulator is a great sounding guitar amp and speaker simulation for quickly laying down guitar tracks without additional equipment. It features various amp and cabinet models to choose from and is also working fine for giving the bass an extra punch.

    The Project Assistant
    The Project Assistant provides a wealth of ready-made templates for different styles and scopes like recording, mixing, producing, and mastering. The templates contain the number of channels, effects, dynamics, amp simulators and channel inserts — tailored to your particular needs. Creating customized user templates and integrating those into the Launch browser makes recording with a DAW software and audio interface just that easy. Start up Cubase Elements, go to Project Assistant, and select a template from the list. A new project is created with the necessary number of tracks, audio input, and output routings, all effects, amp simulator, sounds, and much more. Thanks to this assistant, initializing a Cubase Project from scratch even saves professionals a lot of time — and as we all know, time is money.

        I MAY JUST BE STUPID WHEN IT COMES TO COMPUTER STUFF BUT IVE HAD NOTHING BUT TROUBLE WITH THIS SOFTWARE. IT WAS A HASSLE TO GET IT DOWNLOADED(IT DOESN'T GIVE VERY MUCH HELPFUL DIRECTIONS)ITS DIFFICULT TO USE, AND SINCE THIS WAS THE FIRST SOFTWARE IVE PERSONALLY BOUGHT, DIDN'T MAKE IT VERY EASY TO FIGURE OUT. NOT ONLY THAT BUT STEINBURG DOES NOT GIVE VERY GOOD TECH SUPPORT ESPECIALLY FOR SOMEONE JUST STARTING OUT.

        Comments about Steinberg Cubase Elements 6:

        Still really easy to use. Very user friendly. Everything u can do in pro tools justsimplified for any user. Iv been recording music for 8 yrs now. Used cubase le and cubase 4. Wanted to go more professional and use pro tools the "industry standard". Way more complex and does the exact same thing. Save your money and headache and get cubase. Vst and effect plug ins are simple and u can produce, mix and master all in one program...if u want a lil morr professional mix and master get Steinberg wavelab 7. Another inexpensive product that goes hand in hand with cubase.

        Comments about Steinberg Cubase Elements 6:

        So you buy the most striped down version of software that normally is 5x this price and complain??
        Yes all Steinberg products use an e licence key and once you have one you can go from there. It is 1st class software and worth the hassle. You can blame the idiots who steal software for the bit over the top copy protection Steinberg uses.
        So to everyone else, ignore the negative review, he didn't even try it. It is a basic version of Cubase which is a very popular DAW. For the money it comes with a lot of good features and will work great for any home studio.
        This is all you need to record audio and work with MIDI. Groove agent is a great little drummer.
        The efxs are standard fair and you can add more for free from sites like KVR.

        Be Warned

        By FlyingEffect inc.

        from Wisconsin

        Comments about Steinberg Cubase Elements 6:

        To activate the program you are required to download and install a program called eLicenser. If for any reason you need to reinstall it is required that you allow unspecified access to your computer while in the process of registering at the Steinberg forums. That's a lot of hoops for such a mediocre recording program.
        It's basic recording software with one decent VST reverb and various substandard effects.
        Lacks industry standard hot keys and the ability to bounce two mono tracks into one stereo.
        Because I can't reactivate after reformatting my hard drive the software is lost. I am going to throw the brand new program in the trash with a smile if that indicates its value.
