GmbH, a leading provider of professional music and audio
technologies, today announced the launch of http://www.cubase.net, a
new web site aimed at building a web community of Cubase users and
potential customers. This site will also be the portal for the
Internet enabled version of Cubase, hosting a large number of virtual
studios that allow Cubase users all over the world to collaborate on
music together. It does not replace the corporate web sites
(http://www.steinberg.net, http://www.us.steinberg.net), which will
continue to be the primary source for Steinberg customer support and
Cubase.net is a user community site that not only discusses Steinberg
products but everything interesting for Cubase users. It contains
product reviews, industry news, the ability to upload MP3 files for
exchange, interviews with high profile users and Cubase.TV which will
contain video streams of Steinberg events, interviews with VIPs and
The site allows users to obtain their own free email
firstname.lastname@example.org, a personal email@example.com and participate
in discussion forums for Mac and Windows users and in the future to
lease their own private virtual studios or participate in public
studios with Rocket Powered Cubase.
" Our aim is to build the largest global music community on the web,"
comments Rodney Orpheus, Steinberg Director of Information Services.
"Thousands of Cubase users can now connect with others worldwide to
share interests and music making. Steinberg sees no boundaries for
its users. We hope to create something much larger and more dynamic
than just a user group but a new global community or set of
communities with music as the common thread."
