Just over twenty years ago, people could never have dreamed about what our current technology can do.
I mean, we can talk to people – face to face – no matter where we are in the modern world. There are more videos on the internet than we have time to watch, and we’re always connected with our “friends.”
So why can’t we record someone on the other side of the globe? Well, we can. And we do.

Even though we’ve had this technology in recent years, it’s been crazy expensive. Thousands of dollars for expansions and plug-ins that worked only relatively well.
But with Cubase 7 (and now 7.5) coming pre-packed with VST Connect SE, you can literally record no matter where your bandmates are.
Having used this feature quite a bit for a recent project, I can speak personally about it.

Some challenges, like dropping signal, latency, and infrequent technical difficulties make this tool seem a bit clumsy from time to time, but the fact is that it can work very well and get the job done.
Even some of the top pros are using this type of tool for their projects. I’ve heard that artists like Kellie Pickler “Skyped” in a session for her latest album while she was in L.A. That’s right, you can even make hits with this tool.
Speaking of hits, our recent release Secrets of the Hits: In the Style of Bruno Mars takes you step by step through the process of creating hit-sounding records, all in the box. Check it out for yourself!
