OVERVIEW

All the power you need in a streamlined format.

Steinberg Cubase SL3 Hybrid Version 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 SL3 offers the same, outstanding audio quality and full-featured MIDI recording and editing found in Cubase SX3 at an incredibly low price for those who don't require SX3's surround production or full score layout and printing.

Top-10 features of Cubase SL3

Audio Warp: Realtime Time Stretching and Pitch Shifting

Offers 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

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.

User-definable Workspaces (window layouts)

Helps organize 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.

Extended Freeze function

Works with 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.

Part-based Volume Envelopes

Allows 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

Works for tracks and VST mixer channels provides more clarity and better orientation, especially in complex projects.

Extended Track Inspector

Offers direct access to a VST Instrument's audio channel strip directly from the MIDI track inspector. In fact, it puts both the MIDI and audio channel's parameters into one single column making it more accessible and easier to use. When a song is transferred between systems, all plug-in and virtual instrument links stay intact even when some of them are missing on another system.

Dummy Plug-in

Replaces missing plug-ins until the project is opened on the original system and the plug-ins are back in place.

Audio Pre Record
Ever lost a great idea because you forgot to hit Record? With Audio Pre Record this will never happen again! Simply set up the amount of time for pre-recording (up to 10 minutes) and whatever you play within that window will be recorded into any record-enabled track before you actually hit record.

Hitpoint Detection Algorithm

Redesigned and improved for more accurate results and easier handling. Choose between presets for different types of audio material or apply Q-points to Hitpoints for more accurate quantization and warping.

Great production software - highly recommended

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

Before, I was using Reason 2.5, and needed something to properly mix and master my CD, as Reason is not great in terms of exporting and audio editing. I read reviews, forums, etc, which all said that Cubase had a great, professional sound, and after using it for about a month, I find that this is true. Great for audio editing and mixing, handles VSTs well, and very good for composition. If you have been using Reason or FL for your tracks, and want to move up to a more professional level, SL3 is the way to go. Be prepared to read the manual for this program, as there are TONS of features, editing methods, etc. I bought SL for less than half the price of SX, and I recommend SL over SX for music producers and artists, as the only thing it really lacks is Surround Sound (5.1 Channel) mixing, which you only need for film work. One thing that I'd like to point out is that the VST synths included were not too great. The drum machine (LM-7) is weak and very limited. The A-1 synth was okay, but I haven't been overly impressed with it. The VB virtual bass synth sounded totally awful, nothing like a bass guitar which it is supposed to emulate. Cubase is much better to use if you already have synth/rhythm hardware, another synth program (like Reason), or a good VST (like HALion, Hypersonic, etc).Overall a great program, good effects, good quality and features, and good value!
