Steinberg has released Cubase Pro 8.5 and Cubase Artist 8.5, the latest update to its Digital Audio Workstation for Mac OS X & Windows.

Key new features include Retrologue 2, VST Transit and more.

Here’s a series of videos that introduce the new features in Cubase 8.5:

Retrologue 2 takes Steinberg’s virtual analog synthesizer to a new level, adding many enhancements implemented in a way that are easy and intuitive to use.

VST Transit is Steinberg’s new cloud collaboration service. Upload audio and MIDI tracks to cloud storage, continue working from another location and synchronize the changes back to the cloud. Or collaborate on shared projects with friends and band members. VST Transit comes with up to 500 MB free storage space and 1 GB free traffic per month.

Details on Cubase 8.5 are available at the Steinberg site.

  1. Just upgraded to 8.5, up from Elements 7 and its feels really unstable on my Windows 10 machine. Its 12 gigs of ram, nice video card, and i7. I read that a lot of people had issues with their video cards so I took a suggestion and unplugged my 2nd monitor and sadly enough, Cubase loaded up super fast and ran pretty stable (stable as in loading a vst and not waiting for 3-4 mins, true story). Sucks because its perfect for dual screens now since the windows are detached from the main layout but if its a video issue, then that sucks since a lot of my other specs are pretty good. The interface is a lot better though, so theres that, but ultimately, its still cubase, with subtle feature upgrades here and there.

  2. No problems here on with 8.5 on Win10 (16GB, i7). Loads hella fast, even with large projects. They’ve definitely tightened things up on the interface and I’m definitely noticing improved performance from 8.0. Definitely worth the upgrade.
