Cubase Pro 8 from Steinberg reflects the company's push towards making their top tier audio software even more relevant to professional producers, mixing engineers, and composers. The update is more than a marketing makeover as it includes a rebuilt audio engine for delivering a sleeker, more efficient, and more creative workflow, while offering new audio tools and instruments.

MIDI sequencing has always been integral to creating music on a computer, and tools such as the Score, Drum, and List Editors are indispensable to modern music production. With easy-to-use editing and innovative composing and notation tools, the software offers a complete MIDI composing and sequencing tool set. Additional aids include intelligent compositional tools, such as Chord Track, Chord Assistant, and Chord Pads.
