Steinberg Updates Cubase To Version 4.5
Steinberg has updated the Cubase and Cubase Studio digital audio workstations to version 4.5. The 4.5 versions are available now as a download for all US registered Cubase 4 and Cubase Studio 4 customers.
The 4.5 update offers many new integrative technologies, with full support for the upcoming Steinberg MR816 CSX/X Advanced Integration DSP Studios and the CC121 Advanced Integration Controller. Steinberg claims: “Software and hardware are melded together with a FireWire I/O, a tactile controller and Steinberg’s Cubase Music Production System forming an exciting new system that pushes back the boundaries of what’s possible in digital audio.” Cubase 4.5 also offers enhanced support for the Yamaha MOTIF XS series as well as the KX USB Music Studio series.
Cubase 4.5 also introduces VST Sound, a new and improved universal media management format that is a fundamental part of Steinberg’s VST3 standard. To celebrate the launch of VST Sound, Cubase 4.5 includes the VST Sound Collection Vol. 1, offering 1.6 GB of first-class new sounds and instruments for Cubase. Among the 45 new instruments for HALion One is the famed S90ES Grand by Yamaha. Cubase 4.5 also includes drums, basses, guitars and other instruments by Sonic Reality, as well as 250 loops by Big Fish Audio.
The update also offers full compatibility with Steinberg’s entry-level Sequel 2 Music Creation and Performance Software as well as the new Rock, Hip Hop and Industrial Content Sets.
The Cubase 4.5 update is free to all registered users. More information on Cubase 4.5.
