4-track Hard Disk Recording Software

PERFECT PARTNERS

Akai S1000KB Sampler With DAC R4000 SyQuest Drive

With Cubase and Notator fighting it out at the top end, Steinberg appeared to have left Pro24 to defend its once dominant position in the mid-priced ST sequencer market against all challengers. Now reinforcements are available with the release of Cubeat, a cut down version of Cubase. David Hughes takes it into battle.
