Also curious about the possibilities of the recently released Cubase 6? Steinberg has released Cubase 6 Trial, the evaluation version of Cubase 6. You can try it for 30 days with the USB-eLicenser or Steinberg Key.
New in Cubase 6 is the VST Expression 2-technology, which brings note expression. With note expression every midi note has its own automation parameters. For example an individual midi note in a chord can be modulated apart from the rest of the notes. A video on the Steinberg website shows how note expression works.
VST Expression 2 is potentially a cool feature. Potentially, because it only works if the VST supports this new technology. But now you can try it out and see what it brings.
