Steinberg Cubase - Product Comparison

Published: Sun July 18, 2004  News Feed

So you have decided on a Cubase based music system, but you still need to decide which package to go for. Here is our features comparison guide to help you out.

Cubase SE Cubase SL Cubase SX
Great technology at a great price: that\'s Cubase SE. Based on Steinberg\'s renowned Cubase SX, Cubase SE is ideal for anyone who keeps a sharp eye on their finances but doesn\'t want to do without professional technologies in their home recording, project or pre-production studios. Steinberg\'s Cubase SL 2.0 fills the gap between entry-level home recording solutions and sophisticated high-end professional studio workstations. It offers most of the professional features of Cubase SX 2.0 with the exclusion of surround mixing and advanced score editing, while still being capable of being integrated even into large studio systems.
The new Cubase SX 2.0 unites the proven and the pioneering in one fascinating new program. Cubase SX 2.0 is the next generation of one of the world\'s most popular sequencers with a new, revised user interface and over 100 fantastic new features.
