Steinberg's Cubase 5 is music software that enables you to mix, layer and record audio files with its on-board multi-track recorder. The Cubase 5 interface features a built-in control room in which you can adjust the volume of monitors, cue start and end points and create customised mixing channels. In order to configure the control room, you must set input volume, signal flow and channel parameters for each track.
