Looks like Steinberg has announced another new product at the Musikmesse show in Frankfort Germany, the new "Cubase SX". Here is a quote from Computer Music Web Site:
"Nuendo meets Cubase - new nuendoesque audio engine, new VST instruments, Full OSX/XP support, more effects, 5.1 mixing, unlimited undo and more..."
Steinberg has created their own website dedicated to the Musikmesse show at:
Here is a quote from that website about Cubase SX:
"With Cubase SX, Steinberg takes the next step and presents the most powerful and intuitive Cubase ever. Cubase SX dazzles with intelligent MIDI Input and processing tools, new virtual instruments and effects, easy-to-use editing, scoring, 5.1 Surround, mixing and mastering - with a fresh user interface and a brand new software engine, for Windows 2000/XP and Mac OS X.
Cubase SX has been fully reengineered and includes the latest technologies from Steinberg's digital audio laboratories. Cubase SX offers new handling and breathtaking performance, all designed specifically to support the creativity of today's musicians."
They have some cool screenshots, and a bunch of other information. The interface has been totally redone, and I have heard that it looks more like Nuendo, although I have never seen Nuendo, so I can't be sure. It will also have the VST system link, and a whole new audio engine.
They are saying it will be available by the end of Q2 of this year.
Published pricing is as follows:
Cubase SX will be available at the end of Q2 2002 for EUR 799 (MSRP). The update from Cubase VST/32 will cost EUR 149, the update from Cubase VST Score EUR 199 and the update from Cubase VST EUR 299.
Opus...you must have known about this already...what can you tell us???
Looks pretty awesome to me...now I've got to decide all over again...Nuendo or Cubase SX???
