Cubase, the exemplary daw for audio recording lovers

Cubase has provided me with functionalities that I didn't find in other daws, it is easy to use even though it is created to compose more elaborate works, it has a good quality/price ratio and in my opinion, it is the most complete daw on the market.

Pros

Cubase is an incredible daw if we want to combine the best of the digital audio world and the processing of analog components, this daw has different versions that will serve us depending on what we want to do, offering us an incredible variety of plug-ins and making it easier to work with analog controllers in the process.

Cons

Cubase is... expensive, notwithstanding having different versions to all the pockets, Cubase is a premium daw that not everyone can afford, there are cheaper options on the market that can supply what we are looking for, to the cost of the elements version of Cubase, we could easily get a more advanced version of another daw.

Reasons for Choosing Cubase

Lower-cost alternatives that could meet the demands of any producer

Cubase for all of your music recording

I have been using Cubase since 2005. I've recorded everything from a simple acoustic guitar and vocal so a full orchestrated movie soundtrack synced to video. Steinberg is also constantly updating and improving the software with the user in mind. It is state of the art.

Pros

Most impactful features? Far too many to mention. But the ability to customize my own personal work flow with multiple screens that can be saved for instant recall is awesome. There is nothing Cubase Pro can't do in terms of audio vocal and instrument recording, VST plug-ins, midi, audio to video control with video monitoring and much much more. You can import and export individual tracks or mix your project digitally or in real time. The system is used by Hans Zimmer, which tells you everything you need to know.

Cons

Cubase can be overwhelming because of it's massive ability. But there are numerous support tutorials on a variety of subjects on both the Steinberg site and on YouTube as well as 3rd party platforms.

Reasons for Switching to Cubase

Cubase operates on both Windows and Mac. Logic only operated on Mac. Reaper just wasn't a DAW that I could get used to. Cubase made everything simple.

CUBASE FOR BEGUINERS

At begging it was a good software, unfortunately it didn't evaluate too much.

Pros

It came to me in 1990, very primitive software, so no complicate to work with, used 15 years, but now there are another more efficient programs, but sure!, more complicate to work with.

Cons

Very easy to work, no problems of manipulations, and gives you more time to the most important in your musical work: Creation of new musics.

Reasons for Choosing Cubase

The most less expensive and the most easy for a beginner.

A real audio DAW workhorse

I have used Cubase for years. It's a no messing, straight to it kind of DAW, whether recording/editing audio or creating music/sound design via MIDI. The built in synthesis is good, the generic plugins are great (Reverb and compression in particular)

Pros

Cubase is a solid and reliable sequencer. The audio engine excellent and so responsive I frequently edit clips while I'm actually recording.

Cons

The only niggle I have with Cubase is the price. the Pro version is around £500 and upgrades are also a bit pricey.

Reasons for Choosing Cubase

Cubase offers all the features of ProTools without the massive price tag.

Reasons for Switching to Cubase

I switched as Cubase was recommended soon discovered it was easier to use.
