Native Apple silicon support
For those using the latest Macintosh computers, Cubase 12 introduces native Apple silicon support.
Editing workflow improvements
Nudge grid options let you edit independently from the project grid. Use key commands to the Range Selection tool for easier navigation. There are also key commands to slip event content, adding fades and sizing events with fades.
MIDI controllers are essential to every music production setup. MIDI Remote Scripts will help to automatically detect your device and map the controls. If there is no script for your device yet, you can easily create your own with the MIDI Controller Surface Editor. You can then conveniently connect controls and parameters with the Mapping Assistant.
Audio to MIDI chords
Convert audio to MIDI chord progressions by simply dragging your audio recordings to the Chord Track. And if the detection does not match your scale, Chord Assistant can suggest the nearest alternatives based on the following chords. The Create Chord Events from Audio feature blurs the borders between audio and MIDI, letting you focus on the music.
Smooth waveform drawing
Cubase 12 introduces smooth waveform drawing. It's easier on the eyes and makes it even easier for you to edit audio with pinpoint accuracy.
Sample accurate volume automation
Volume automation is now near sample accurate and completely independent from the buffer size. Create and edit smooth transitions for musical build-ups and provide detailed automation lanes while keeping mouse clicks to a minimum.
