Steinberg North America (Chatsworth, Calif.; today announced a special upgrade to the new Cubase SX for $299 for all Emagic Logic Audio Platinum, Gold and Silver users, from July 1 to September 30, 2002.

This limited-time special offer comes after Apple's acquisition of Emagic. In a July 1st press release, plans were stated to discontinue Emagic products on the PC platform by September 30, 2002, though Emagic said that it will continue to support PC users.

Steve Garth, CEO of Steinberg North America, stated, "We are extending this offer as a means to introduce Emagic users, both professional and enthusiast, to the Steinberg platform and give them the tools and ongoing support to express their musical creativity."

Cubase SX includes a host of new features including a newly designed project window and mixer, unlimited undo/redo, surround sound, loop editor, Waldorf A1 synthesizer, and optimizations for PIII, PIV, Athlon, Altivec and multiprocessors.

Also announced today, Emagic plans to release Logic 5.2 for Mac and Windows in August 2002. Emagic is currently beta-testing Version 5.2.

New features in 5.2 include additional audio-routing possibilities through auxiliary channels, more audio tracks, improved track mixer, optimizations within the automation and other changes; also with this new version, there are individual outputs for VST 2.0 and Emagic software instruments to ensure that single output signals are automatically added to the sum output of the software instrument as soon as the instrument does not make any use of its individual output. Another feature is a newly created plug-in, known as the I/O-insert, which is used to route the signals of external effect processors into individual channels via inserts.

Version 5.2 of Logic Platinum will be available to all registered owners of Logic Platinum 5.0 Mac and Windows on Emagic's Website ( as free download.
