  1. I always thought Cubase had some great features, and this update looks impressive, but whenever I’ve used Cubase to record and mix a band I’ve always found its routing and editing to be a bit of a pain. It’s great for getting ideas down, but it’s not so great for getting them polished and released.

    Then again, maybe things will improve in 7

    • Funny that is what i say about other DAWs (minus Logic). I suppose it is always easiest in what you learned first. That is the case for me and Cubase–my first DAW love.
