Steinberg CMC-PD Pad Controller
Lay down deeply dynamic drum grooves, play natural percussion patterns and control your favorite DAW functions - all from one intuitive interface. With 16 highly responsive, backlit rubber pads, a rotary encoder and dedicated working modes, the CMC-PD is a multipurpose pad controller designed to improve your beat creation, recording and live performance workflow.
The centrepiece of the CMC-PD is formed by 16 highly responsive rubber pads, laid out in an MPC-style 4x4 matrix. The pads allow you to create stunningly natural drum grooves and complex rhythmic patterns with the touch of your fingers. Best of all, the LED-based background lights change colours according to the velocity level - from green to orange over to red. In addition, the practical rotary encoder allows you to browse sounds and presets in next to no time.
The 4x4 layout makes the CMC-PD the ideal hardware partner for MPC-style, virtual drum samplers such as Steinberg's Groove Agent ONE or external hardware sound modules. But the CMC-PD also works wonders as an all-in-one DAW control desk. And with the included PD Editor software you can easily change the MIDI note assignment for each pad.
The 4Velocity mode for easy step recording, 16 selectable volume response curves and power supply via USB round out the universal feature set of this slim-sized yet extremely versatile controller unit. In sum, the CMC Pad Controller offers excellent handling alongsideextensive customization options to turn it into an all-in-one DAW control solution.
Cubase 7.5 has been produced to give musicians, producers and engineers the tools they need to get the job done at the highest possible level. New features have been added to streamline the process of making music. Not only does this make the process easier, but also quicker. Steinberg have created new features that allow you to manage your tracks and ideas in a much more intuitive way. The way VST instruments and FX integrate has been improved to offer better accessibility and includes 8 fantastic instruments and 69 high-end effects. Now Cubase 7.5 offers more musical features than ever before, making this version of the software more creative, easier to use and most importantly sounding better than ever before.
Features like track visibility mode allow you select what tracks you want to see. Large projects can get confusing when you have a high number of tracks. Track visibility can be used to streamline the arrange window and allow you to focus on the tracks remaining. It could be that you wish to hide all your MIDI tracks, or finalized versions you have recorded to audio. To do this enter the track visibility tab and de-select the white button next to each track you want to hide.
Instrument (t)rack 2.0 in Cubase 7.5 has updated the way plugins are opened. When you add a VST to the VST rack, a corresponding track is also added to the project window and vice versa. Instrument tracks now have multiple outputs for any instrument which can be easily selected.
TrackVersions has been designed to allow you to work on different versions of the same track, while keeping the same settings. You are now able to create, rename and manage parallel versions from inside the channel dropdown. This means you could for instance record multiple bass lines on the same channel and use the drop down to select the best one. Or you could be working on different vocal tracks and need to submit different versions. TrackVersion places alternative versions of recordings at hand where you need them. This process allows you to speed up your workflow and works with audio, MIDI, instruments, chord, tempo and signature tracks.
Groove Agent SE 4
Cubase 7.5 now includes the new Groove Agent SE 4, the follow up to the hugely successful Groove Agent ONE. The great thing about the Groove Agent is its ease of use. It has been designed to resemble the MPC and maps for perfect integration. This allows you to start making beats quickly in a natural way and not having to feel like you been hindered by over complicated menus and processes. A Drum Machine is only as good as its sounds and these sounds have been designed and recorded by some of the most talented engineers available. This means you can go from laying down fat Hip Hop beats, then switch to groovy funk Beats with ease.
HALion Sonic SE 2
HALion Sonic SE 2 is the new and updated sampler for Cubase 7.5. It has been designed to allow access to a large selection of instruments and is ideal for composers who need a large pallet of sound. The interface has been set-up to give the user fast access to instruments through its integrated browser. The HALion Sonic SE 2 now boasts 8 new effect types which include: Tape Saturation, Wah Wah, Auto Filter, Step Flanger, Ring Modulator, Octaver, Vintage Ensemble, Envelope Shaper and a classic but improved Rotary Effect
LoopMash has arrived to mangle and mash your tracks up like never before. This new little sonic torture device has been created to add that extra bit of randomisation to your music. These FXs can help add interest to beats, melodies and even master channels. These up to the minute FX styles are ideal for Dubstep and electronica, adding breaks, tape-stops and stutters. LoopMash had been designed for use in the studio, but really comes to life when used in a live environment. All the parameters can be mapped to any MIDI controller and performed in real time.
Developed to recreate the sound of classic FX units, the REVelation Reverb will add sparkle to any track. Steinberg have worked with professional engineers and film mixers to produce algorithms that sound just as stunning as the originals their mimicking. Reverbs are used to give sound a scene of space. They can be used on anything from vocals, strings to percussion to add a warm smooth ambience
Magneto hasn't been around since the days of Cubase SX, but now Steinberg have decided to resurrect and update this unit. What we have now is the new and shiny Magneto 2. Apart from having a facelift, Magneto 2 has been updated to produce a more realistic and natural tape saturation. Some critics say that digital is cold and lifeless, but not anymore because this little plugin will add the warmth that only analog tape can produce. Magneto 2 has a band-pass setting which allows you to select the frequency range of the effect you want to be applied. There is also a dual mode which simulates using two tape machines in sequence.
