I have seen a lot of folks harping here about no good pro music software for Mac OS X. Well, your day has come, big time. Steinberg has upgraded their flagship program Cubase VST to Cubase SX. It runs on Mac OS X, not on OS 9. VST System Link is the coolest new feature. The software lets you create a network of computers (MAC or PC, or both) to run Cubase SX, like a render farm, but in real time. One machine could run VST synths, another VST samplers, another VST DSP plugins, another mixing, another record audio. With SX, you have no limits, (except your pocket book). New features: New user interface Graphic automation of every parameter Musical real-time MIDI processing Unlimited Undo / Redo 5.1 Surround Complete set of new virtual instruments Comprehensive range of new virtual effect processors Edit History Cubase SX will be available at the end of Q2 2002 for EUR 799 (MSRP). The update from Cubase VST/32 will cost EUR 149, the update from Cubase VST Score EUR 199 and the update from Cubase VST EUR 299.
