Music Software : Brand-new Cubase 7.5 and Cubase Artist 7.5 updates - pcmusicSteinberg Media Technologies GmbH today announced significant updates to its award-winning music production systems, Cubase and Cubase Artist, available in December.

Version 7.5 incorporates important workflow enhancements, version updates to its instruments and new effects to further the impressive feature set of Cubase and increase professionals' productivity when producing music.

Cubase 7.5 and Cubase Artist 7.5 feature Groove Agent SE 4, a powerful MPC-like drum sampler with detailed sound editing capabilities and pattern playback. Groove Agent SE 4 also provides automatic alignment of drum maps with the Drum Editor and Beat Designer, and includes 30 new drum kits and more than 200 grooves. HALion Sonic SE 2 is the updated compact version of Steinberg's acclaimed workstation, featuring the new Trip virtual analog arp synthesizer plus eight new effects. Bringing the sounds of HALion Sonic SE 2, Padshop, Retrologue and Groove Agent SE 4 to life, Cubase and Cubase Artist now include the EDM Toolbox with 30 fresh construction kits of 2530 MIDI loops each.

Both updates highlight three great new effects: LoopMash FX comes with new style breaks, tape-stops and stutters that can easily be triggered in real time with any MIDI controller; REVelation is an algorithmic reverb for an outrageous degree of depth; and Magneto 2, the rejuvenated tape saturation processor, delivers true analog character to any track.

Exclusively available in Cubase 7.5, VST Connect SE 2 adds MIDI recording to its comprehensive remote recording capabilities via the Internet.

Virtual Instrument : KV331 Audio updates SynthMaster to v2.6.9 - pcmusicKV331 Audio has updated SynthMaster to version 2.6.9 on both Windows and Mac OS X.

This update adds 50 new presets to SynthMaster's factory library, created by Ufuk Kevser. The presets are suitable for electro house, dubstep, progressive house and many more genres. Audio demo of the presets are available at:

https://soundcloud.com/kv331synthmaster/synthmaster-factory-presets-by

There are also critical fixes in this update:

1. Moving the last point of distortion curve crashes SynthMaster.
2. When multiple SynthMaster windows are open, switching between tabs might crash SynthMaster or can cause areas drawn in red.
3. Resetting settings of a section doesn't refresh the user interface correctly.
4. Pasting settings of a section from clipboard doesn't refresh the user interface correctly.
5. Keyscaler view doesn't draw piano keys correctly.

All users of SynthMaster (demo or registered) are strongly urged to update SynthMaster to v2.6.9.

Virtual Instrument : Detunized releases Around Bridges Library (Live Pack & Universal WAV) - pcmusicAround Bridges features the inner sounds of bridges.

To round up this library several high quality AB-stereo ambiences of the acoustical surroundings of bridges are included.
