Steinberg readies "completely new products"

Will Steinberg be announcing an update to Cubase at Musikmesse?
Will Steinberg be announcing an update to Cubase at Musikmesse?

Steinberg has been fairly quiet on the product launch front recently - in fact, it seems to have been focusing more of its attention on discontinuing software than releasing it - but we hear that there will be some new stuff from the German developer at the 2008 Frankfurt Musikmesse.

The company has arranged a press conference at 10am on March 12 - the first day of this massive trade show - and is saying that it will be unveiling several “completely new products”.

We´re assuming that this means we can expect something rather more than an update to Cubase 4 (though it wouldn´t surprise us if this was announced as well), but we don´t yet know what kind of ‘new products´ we can expect.

We´d be surprised if Steinberg launched another full-on music-making application at this stage - it´s less than a year since it released Sequel, after all - so maybe we´ll be treated to a fresh plug-in or two.

Whatever the news, we´ll have it here as soon as it´s made public. You can browse the current product line at Steinberg´s website.
