The advanced audio engine calculates your summing, mixing and effects processing with double-precision accuracy, performing each task with the utmost level of detail, dynamics and transparency.
Zoning 2.0: Speed Up Your Workflow
Three new sections made their way into the right zone to enhance the flow in your work. The new file browser lets you browse, preview and import your media files in your project without leaving the window.
Automation Editing Just Got Curves
Cubase 9.5 introduces ultra-precise automation curves for creating and editing smooth transitions, allowing you to go creative with musical build-ups and providing detailed automation lanes â€” all this while keeping mouse clicks to a minimum. One might think that a streamlined workflow possibly comes at the expense of accuracy. But no,not at all! Even the automation of tracks controlled by VCA faders will incorporate all automation data of the connected tracks and will remain 100% on target.
More Inserts Now With Flexible Pre/Post Fader
By doubling the number of insert slots for VST effects on each track, Cubase 9.5 expands your creative horizon, inviting you to experiment with rich effect combinations and plug-in chains. Whether you want to insert your VST effects before or after the fader, the new flexible insert section lets you dynamically adjust the position of the separator and gives you full control of your signal flow.
New Looks For Vintage Compressor, Tube Compressor And Magneto
Three of the most acclaimed VST processors available to Cubase have received a fresh overhaul. The Vintage Compressor, the Tube Compressor and Magneto tape saturator shine with redesigned user interfaces and workflow-oriented improvements that bring out the best in each of them.
HALion Sonic SE 3 Feat. The FLUX Wavetable Synth

The collection of 100 cutting-edge presets for electronic music productions includes leads, basses, pads and effects. All patches are based on a library of more than 70 exclusively designed waves that can also be used to create your own sounds and patches.
Automation Range Tool
The new Range Tool lets you edit your automations faster, easier and more conveniently. Create a selection on an automation lane and edit segments by simply dragging them without having to create any additional automation markers. The Range Tool adjusts the level, creates ramps and scales the automation in either absolute or relative mode â€” just like that!
Softube Console 1 Supports Cubase
Sweden and Germany â€” two countries come together to celebrate the deep integration of the Console 1 from Steinberg's friends at Softube with Cubase. You can now select tracks and control various track parameters like volume, pan or sends through Softube's beautiful hardware controller.
Adapt To Zoom: A Clever Capability
New to this point update, Adapt to Zoom helps you to stay in the flow in case you should be constantly zooming in and out of your Cubase project. Zooming out decreases the grid snap level so that the editing level remains effective. Zooming in increases the grid snap level for those surgical procedures at the ground level of your project. Adapt to Zoom will always adjust the grid automatically to your zoom level, allowing you to focus on your work without distractions.
Sampler Track Enhancements
The recently introduced Sampler Track has undergone some changes that will enhance your workflow significantly. Drag any MIDI part in the Sampler Control and start experimenting with the instantly rendered audio file. And experiment you may! You can compare the different settings you make with the convenient A/B mode, safe in the knowledge that its undo/redo capability will always allow you to return to safer ground.
Get Inspired By Production Presets
Cubase 9.5 comes with Production Presets to inspire you when it's needed and to help you finish your mix when things need to get done.
