Steinberg's anniversary year continues to bring us all more goodies - they are celebrating 20 Years of Revolution this year. Their latest update to Nuendo, Cubase SX and SL adds more control surface support, plus more plug-ins - see below....
The 2.2 versions of Nuendo, Cubase SX and Cubase SL will offer new remote
control features, with Cubase SX and Nuendo also receiving three new VST
plug-ins. The update for all three programs is now available as a free
internet download to existing owners.
The added functionality includes improved support for hardware controllers.
New in Cubase SL, Cubase SX and Nuendo 2.2 is support for the Mackie Control
Universal Extender units, in addition to the current support for the main
Mackie Control unit. Multiple Extender units can be added to a Mackie
Control to offer direct access to channels in Cubase SX, Cubase SL and
The Generic Remote area of all three applications has also seen an overhaul,
with control for a full set of functions now implemented in Cubase SX/SL and
Nuendo, including Send effects levels, EQ settings and plug-in parameters.
The 2.2 versions of Cubase SX and Nuendo also offer three new VST plug-ins
comprising two new virtual synthesizers and one new VST filter effect.
Monologue is a monophonic analog synthesizer based on physical modeling
technology that offers a full, rich and colorful palette of sounds for bass,
lead and sequenced sounds without straining the computer's CPU. Embracer is
a simple but powerful polyphonic surround-capable synthesizer designed for
producing pads and accompaniment sounds in both stereo and surround
environments. The last of the trio of new plug-ins is Tonic, a versatile and
powerful analog modeling filter effect based on the filter design of the
Monologue monophonic synthesizer. All three 2.2 versions also include a
number of minor product enhancements.
"This 2.2 update brings some exciting new features to three of our most
important products," said Arnd Kaiser, Senior Product Manager for Music
Technology. He continued: "The new, fantastic-sounding plug-ins add to the
creative versatility of both Cubase SX and Nuendo." Lars Baumann, Senior
Product Manager for Nuendo, added: "We're pleased to introduce native
support for a successful product such as the Mackie Control Universal
Extender. The much-improved Generic Remote functionality is also an
important step forward for both Nuendo and Cubase."
