Chapter 1.  Introducing Cubase  >  What Is Cubase?

What Is Cubase?

Cubase is a toolbox for musicians. In that toolbox, you will find tools to record, edit, mix, and publish MIDI and audio information, as well as tools to convert MIDI into printable sheet music.

In 1984, Steinberg created its first MIDI sequencer, which became known in 1989 as Cubase. This tool was designed to help musicians capture their performances in a MIDI sequencer. With the advent of MIDI, the computer could talk to musical instruments and vice versa. At that time, the processing power of computers was insufficient to properly record digital audio, so, musicians had to wait another 10 years before they could record audio digitally by using a computer. Steinberg was one of the first companies to develop an integrated system that could record to both MIDI and digital audio.
