Our resident Steinberg Cubase expert Gaz Williams takes a look a the new Cubase 8.5 release. Less of a major milestone, it appears to be more of a workflow enhancement with numerous changes and tweaks to make it more 'pro' which is Steinberg's aim.
VST Transit - cloud asset sharing
Retrologue 2 - virtual analog extra oscillator, more FX and presets
Ribbons - for hide/show interface aspects
Import tracks from projects
MIDI and Drum edit enhancements
Chord Pads Sections - for more creative options
Profile Manager - save your settings and use them elsewhere (Cubase Pro)
