Retrologue Cabin: My unofficial Cubase 6.5 demo

Q: What do you get when you combine Cubase 6.5, a 4-year old white MacBook, 6 hours, 18 instances of Retrologue, LoopMash2 and a splash of DJ-EQ? A: This!

As you’ll know if you’ve read the post below, I spent last weekend reviewing Steinberg’s new audio production package Cubase 6.5. One of the main additions in this version is a brute of a soft synth called Retrologue, a dual-oscillator noisemonster full of great virtual analogue sounds. I put this demo together in just six hours using a selection of its presets, so if you want to hear what it sounds like, have a listen!

Such a joy to be using Cubase again! If I close my eyes and squint a bit I could be on my old Atari 1040ST. Well, not really, but on some level, it still feels the same as it did years ago, only much, much better.
