    Good basic choir folder, I've bought hundreds in the past. Very little to compare at the price. Chamberlain's service couldn't be faulted with delivery within 5 days.

    PBuzzes are great music-toys. These are a sort of tunable vuvuzela: easy to play, tough and good fun. We have a trio playing PBuzzes now, they're perfect for outdoor (in the rain) gigs and it's very...

Steinberg Cubase Elements is the lowest priced way of getting into the Cubase DAW (Digital Audio Workstation) family. If you are teaching Music Technology or elements of the production industry, or just starting out on original compositions, Cubase Elements may just be your way in.

All the elements of audio production are catered for

The mixer: This is where it all starts. Set up a channel to record an acoustic or electric instrument into your computer, or choose from a MIDI controlled instrument (see below) and just start recording.
Cubase has a redesigned mixer which is very straightforward to use without skimping on features, a traditional analogue workflow is adhered to, which is very important when teaching signal flow.
Also Cubase has a lot of “in the background” features that configure your hardware (audio interfaces and MIDI controller keyboards) simply and effectively without you having to delve into settings and drivers to configure your setup.

Virtual Instruments: Elements comes with fewer instruments than the full version of Cubase, but there’s more than enough to keep your creative juices flowing. Included in the box are:
Steinberg Groove Agent ONE VST Instrument
Groove Agent ONE – is an MPC type drum machine. This way of creating drum patterns basically invented modern dance music. There’s 66 kits loaded in for you. You’ll never need anything else for drum loops!
Steinberg Prologue VST Instrument
Prologue – is a polyphonic subtractive synthesizer which basically means that it will provide you with all the synth sounds you hear in your favourite tracks. When you outgrow this one, you’ll be ready to upgrade to the next level of Cubase anyway.

HALion Sonic SE – a software sample player with over 350 patches already loaded in to cover a huge array of musical genres.

Audio Effects: This is the part that makes audio production fun. When you have recorded your audio into the computer you can ‘fiddle’ with it. For example, if you record a vocal in, you can then add reverb to help soften the sound and make it fit nicely in the mix. But Cubase can do so much more than that…. Elements comes with nearly every effect that the full version has, minus any surround sound specific effects and super geeky effects like a SMPTE generator and a multiband compressor. If you feel you need these things in your mix then you’ll really want to upgrade to Cubase anyway!

Composing and Sequencing: All the major elements to a modern DAW are there; a score editor, a key editor, a drum editor and an arranger track.
There is also the new chord track which is where Cubase will automatically detect the harmony structure of your song and help you stay harmonically correct throughout your composition.

In conclusion, Steinberg Cubase Elements will give you everything you need for a home project studio, GSCE or A level class (please remember that it doesn’t support surround sound though!) at a fraction of the price of the full Cubase. With Steinberg’s upgrade paths you really can start here and work your way up the Cubase ladder as and when you feel ready without having to buy the software twice!
Top 10 reasons to update
- Improved windows handling on PC, dockable rack and MediaBay plus a redesigned Track List
- Instrument (t)rack 2.0: Supports multi-outputs and multi-inputs, and merges instrument tracks with the VST Instrument Rack
- Chord pads for playfully and creatively composing with chords
- Groove Agent SE 4: With over 120 drum kits and smart user interface for creating beats and hits in not time
- HALion Sonic SE 2: Giving you tons of fresh new sounds plus a totally new synth
- Plug-in manager: Arrange, sort and group your effects and instruments
- ASIO-Guard 2: Ultra-low latencies only on the tracks where latency matters
- Transient navigation: Tab to transients on audio events in the Project window thanks to the new instant hitpoint navigation

- FLAC lossless compression codec for recording, importing and exporting audio files

Cubase Elements 8 introduces a new windows handling paradigm that makes for a more efficient workflow. All windows can be freely placed on any display and maximized, restored, minimized, tiled and cycled through by using standard Windows OS commands. Windows will now also group Cubase windows in the taskbar, preview window content and show mini icons.
