Steinberg has announced that Sequel 2, a new version of Steinbergâ€™s entry-level music creation and live performance software, is now shipping to resellers worldwide.
Sequel 2 introduces new features, including a hardware Controller Learn mode, Track Freeze, a virtual keyboard, Track Icons and many more.
Nadine Roos, Steinbergâ€™s Marketing Manager for Sequel, told us, â€œThis new release builds on the successful launch of Sequel last year, with more functionality that makes music creation even more creative and fun, while making no compromises on ease-of-use and accessibility. Many Cubase owners will also find Sequel an attractive, mobile composition tool for sketching out musical ideas, while both the included content and the new Sequel Content Sets for Industrial, Rock and Hip Hop add even more audio content to fuel creativity.â€�
The new features include a unique Controller Learn Mode, which Steinberg say allows extremely easy setup for almost any hardware controller to offer tactile control over practically any Sequel 2 function, instrument or parameter. Track Freeze enhances CPU efficiency, while the new Track Icons visually label tracks, making them easy to find and adding an attractive new element to the Sequel user interface. The Sequel MediaBay sound management system has also been improved, while new the new Audio Reverse effect and the Audio Warp features offer even more creative options.
