Steinberg has released the #StayHome Elements Collection, a collection of music creation and audio editing tools that are free to use for 60 days.
#StayHome Elements Collection is a collection of free music-making software for Windows and macOS.

Cubase Elements is a cut-down version of Cubase, Steinberg’s flagship digital audio workstation. The software does come with some limitations, but it provides all the features necessary for serious music production. Cubase Elements can host VST plugins, it supports up to 24 physical audio inputs, and allows the user to add up to 64 MIDI tracks and 48 audio tracks per project.

WaveLab Elements is a powerful software for audio editing and audio mastering. It is based on the WaveLab Pro mastering software from Steinberg. Although it lacks some of the features included in the full version of the software, WaveLab Elements hosts many powerful audio editing and analysis tools, a set of mastering tools, a CD burning engine, and more.
Dorico Elements is Steinberg’s entry-level notation software. It includes the most essential features of Dorico Pro, including guitar tablatures, chord diagrams, notation templates, and up to twelve players per project. It is the perfect musical notation tool for less-demanding users.
The Absolute Collection features over 100 GB of sample content, along with 6,800 presets for Steinberg’s virtual instruments like Retrologue 2, Padshop 2, and more. It also includes the renowned HALion 6 sample and synthesis workstation, as well as the Groove Agent virtual instrument for drums and percussion.
The #StayHome Elements Collection can be downloaded entirely free of charge from Steinberg’s website. You will need to sign in to your existing user account or create a new Steinberg ID to receive your personal activation code. A valid email address is required for the account activation process. The offer ends on May 15th, 2020.
