Pitch Editing and Time Correction with VariAudio

The VariAudio features in Cubase allow you to edit pitch, and correct the timing and intonation of individual notes in monophonic vocal recordings.

All VariAudio operations can be performed in the Sample Editor window and in the lower zone editor. Any modifications to the audio material can be undone.


The VariAudio features are optimized for monophonic recordings of vocals. It may work well for other monophonic recordings, such as saxophone, as well. However, the quality of the result depends greatly on the recording.

Before you can edit the pitch and correct the timing of monophonic recordings, Cubase must analyze the audio and split it into segments. These segments are graphic representations of the individual notes.


Due to the data gained during segmentation, the audio and thus the size of your project can increase.
