11 July, 2019
UAE: Having first opened its doors in 2016, Dubai-based production studio VST Music Studio has adopted Steinberg’s Cubase Pro 10 as its primary DAW. Corporate work has been a segment of focus for VST lately, with Cubase Pro 10 supporting recent productions with some big names in the market such as Al Marai, F1 Abu Dhabi, RTA, Dubai festival city.
Having worked a music producer, composer and arranger for 16 years after relocating to the UAE in 2010, Bulgarian studio owner Stoyan Stoyanov Storn has been using the Steinberg software alongside a Universal Audio Apollo 8 audio interface and Behringer X32 mixer.
‘Cubase has an extremely comfortable functionality, especially with the new and additional features included in the latest version 10,’ explained Storn. ‘To name some stand out features would be wrong, because it’s the entirety of the Cubase functionality which makes it brilliant. But let's just say that the Vary Audio tuning tool, the channel strip for each audio/instrument channel, plug-ins like Quadrafuzz, the really convenient mixing console, and the render in place functionality are all amazing features.’
Cubase Pro 10 introduced a re-designed user interface and new features such as the Audio Alignment Tool that lets you Stack and match recordings, synchronising them to a reference track. ‘Every producer is used to what he/she's been working with and they can say it is very fast and convenient and recommend their DAW,’ furthered Storn. ‘All my customers who have some experience with other DAWs are amazed with what I can do with Cubase and the speed I do it. Yes, speed is the word I can use to really describe Cubase. It is a brilliant DAW. Just keep developing it, Steinberg.’
‘We have always been in awe of how Cubase empowers musicians and producers,’ added Khadija Khalid, audio sales and marketing manager at Cubase distributor, MediaCast. ‘People who use Cubase swear by it and we hope to take it to more people to experience the system in the days to come. We work very closely with the end-users and I am delighted to hear the fantastic feedback from Stoy and VST about Cubase.’
