Music Software : Steinberg Releases Cubase SE, Budget Version of SX Product - macmusicSteinberg has in the past offered a budget version of its flagship Cubase music production software, but hasn't kept pace with recent releases of Cubase SX -- until now. The company is now shipping newly-announced Cubase SE, with features borrowed from SX but customized for beginners and educational use at a lower price, EUR149 (even less for education). This version of Cubase SE shipped in Steinberg's Studio Case product but was unavailable as standalone.

The light version offers 48 audio tracks, unlimited MIDI tracks, 24-bit / 96 KHz audio, VST and ReWire 2 support. Nothing to sneeze at, and an excellent, competitive price, half of the budget version of Logic.

Currently still in beta, this version is available for testing compatibility with other Apple laptops, like the Snow iBook, iBook G4 and Aluminium PowerBooks. It allows the built-in trackpad to be used as a three-axis MIDI controller, sending x, y and z (pressure) data as parameter change messages. The software is available as a free download.

Ed: I'm anxious to try this, as I'm sure are you, so I've posted this before any testing -- hit comments, everyone, and let us know how compatibility is going on your machine (and be sure to forward feedback to the author. -PK
