Complete audio/MIDI recording and editing, virtual instruments, plus loop- and pattern-based arranging and mixing.
Steinberg Cubase SX3 Recording Software takes music production to a new level. They've added more than 70 updates including powerful Audio Warp realtime time-stretching, an intuitive Play Order Track, convenient In-place Editing, and many new editing functions.
For the first time, a native music production system combines full-featured audio and MIDI recording and editing, virtual instruments, and powerful audio mixing with the added flexibility of loop- and pattern-based arranging and mixing. Cubase SX3 supports Windows XP and Mac OS X and works with a multitude of audio interfaces. Add to that the seamless integration of external audio and MIDI hardware, and Cubase SX3 redefines music production technology.
Top-10 new features of Cubase SX3
Audio Warp: Realtime Time Stretching and Pitch Shifting offer extensive new audio editing and processing capabilities, including ACID File support: loops automatically adopt a project's tempo; audio files can follow tempo changes in realtime.
Intuitive Play Order Track for pattern-based arranging adds a new level of creative music editing. Divide your song into sections, and then re-arrange it on the fly. Compare alternative versions of your song and then convert them back into a linear form for mixdown and mastering.
New Inplace Editor supports ultrafast direct MIDI event editing from within the project page. Edit MIDI events in context with audio or video.
New MIDI Device Maps/Panels support direct access to external MIDI hardware with user-definable graphic editing panels. Import VST Mixer Maps or create your own editing panels, even for the Track Inspector or the mixer's channel strip.
User-definable Workspaces (window layouts) help organizing your desktop. Create and save a separate workspace for each step of the production process. Switch Workspaces on the fly, as if working on multiple computers or monitors.
Studio Connections "Total Recall" support (optional integration of Yamaha's Studio Manager 2). The first step into a new dimension of software/hardware integration. This modular editing system builds a powerful bridge between the virtual and physical studio. Opening a project can recall an entire studio setup within seconds.
External FX Plug-ins allow for direct integration of external hardware effects processors into the VST audio mixer. Use your favorite outboard gear just like plug-ins-—including automatic delay compensation.
Extended Freeze function for virtual instruments and audio tracks with added flexibility and improved performance. Freeze virtual instruments with or without insert effects. Then automatically unload the instrument to free up RAM. Freeze audio tracks with insert effects to free up even more CPU performance.
New part-based Volume Envelopes for direct control of dynamics. Fix level problems on the fly without wasting automation tracks. Then move events with their volume envelopes.
User-definable Color Coding for tracks and VST mixer channels provides more clarity and better orientation—especially in complex projects.

Once you start whittling away at the features, I am sure this program is unstoppable, as the sound engine in this program is noticably louder and clearer plus it runs smooth with all kinds of quality effects & synths included. Once you update to the latest version, you have X2 support and you'll be recording unlimited tracks with dual cores!!! I have barely cracked the surface, but for MIDI editing, Automation editing, compatibility and functionality, this is the way to go.
I'ved own the first version of cubase and I love that one, so now I upgraded to the SX3 and I am loving it. I have protools and cubase SX3 and the both of them are just wonderful.
I've just upgraded my studio from an "all-in-one" Roland vs1680 (that got me through the last 6 years) to Cubase SX 3. Out of the box the software started working right away. And it linked up with my Firepod no problem. I'm amazed at the midi functions this program has. This isn't the first program I purchased however. I just got myself a Digidesign 002 rack running Pro Tools LE. I had so many problems getting it to work with my PC (which I built to Digidesign's specs) that I finally took it back after a month. Cubase has been AWESOME in comparison.
I've recently upgraded from VST 24 4.1, and the learning curve is really good. I'm sure it will take me a while to learn all the tricks, but I was up & recording in about an hour!
