Cubase Artist Editor's Review

Professional audio editors and artists dealing in MIDI composition have a soft corner for Steinberg Cubase Artist. Its origin can be traced back to Atari ST and in later years, the app made way into PCs and Macs. The latest version is a flexible and powerful recording environment. It will suit needs of users looking for a setup with MIDI composition and virtual synthesizers. However, it is also a powerful post-production app. The Artist is middle of the line edition, while Cubase Elements is the entry level one.

Cubase Artist requires A PC with Windows 7 and latter editions and 2 GB memory to run smoothly. It is a 64 bit application. It is compatible with many third party software and hardware. The software requires a mail-order or disc purchase, a downer for fans of online software download. If your laptop lacks an optical drive, it leads to hassles. The copy protection scheme of Steinberg is another pain.

The software has a logically designed UI with a wonderful Key Editor. There are plenty of controls and toolbars but seasoned MIDI app users will find themselves at home. The shortcuts offered by the app ease up workflow and you can also use numeric keys. Arranging and editing MIDI clips with Cubase Artist is easier than other apps.

The Score Editor of Cubase Artist deserves a mention and comes with adequate notation tools. It supports a comprehensive range of symbols, along with lyrics, guitar tabs, and drum notes. It also supports exporting and importing xml files. The List editor and Drum editor are ideal for editing MIDI events and rhythm. The app now supports FLAC, a lossless excellent compression format.

Mixing and recording audio using virtual plug-ins and live instruments is pretty straightforward when you use this app. The audio engine offers support for 192KHz, 32-bit recording and 5.1 surround sound. There is no audio track or instrument limitation. The new drag-and-drop Comp Tool lets you make new tracks fast. Combined with the app’s new group editing, this makes performing vocal edits simple. The collaboration tools of the app have been beefed up and the projects can be exported directly to SoundCloud.

The mixing console is huge and it comes with a full screen mode. The window is pretty customizable. However, you will need a large display to extract the best out of it. With the app, you get a vast repository of powerful plug-ins. Examples include DJ-EQ plug-in, MorphFilter, VST Amp Rack presets, noise gate, EQ with spectrum analyzer etc. The plug-ins comes with plenty of presets.

Cubase Artist does not come with grand piano and drum instruments. However, as far as Effects are concerned, the app delivers well. In most cases, mixing down tracks can easily be done using Cubase's integrated plug-ins and effects. The new mixer channel compression produces punchy and smooth output.

Positive Points:
•    Nicely designed mixing console.
•    Plenty of useful plug-ins.
•    Comprehensive editing tools.

Negative Points:
•    Installation woes and limitations.
•    No support for older Windows versions.

Steinberg Cubase Artist is powerful and versatile digital audio workstation more suited for MIDI users. The USP of the tool is the revamped mixing console. Its plug-ins and effects are really comprehensive and workflow is much improved. However, the tool faces steep competition from rivals like Cakewalk SONAR and Avid Pro Tools. While it’s mixing console opens new arena of creative mixing possibilities, you will need a PC with really large display to make the most of it. The installation woes of Cubase Artist and its limited support for Windows OS versions can also deter some users.
