Cubase Essential 4 music recording and sequencing software gives you a nice selection of powerful tools for composing, recording, editing, and mixing taken from the full version of Cubase.

Any way you choose to use it - as a sequencer for your home recording studio, or as a multi-track recorder for the band rehearsal room - you get the real deal at an unbeatable budget price.
