I’m not tempted either. All the Steinberg stuff, but especially Cubase, has a notorious history of bugs that just piss me off. The last version I used was the v2.x, and I did upgrade to v3.x but hardly used it at all. I didn’t bother with v4 at all, and I’m glad I didn’t, because of the design decisions they made and the plethora of killer bugs it had. So they forever lost me as customer. Another bonus: I switch to Sonar and eliminated all dongled software from my PC and now it almost never crashes. The software the dongle… Read more »

I like what it has to offer. Cubase SL3 does crash but not often. This program along with Reason & E-Lab Obession & Foundation allowed me to create great music. I don’t have Cubase 4 but some complained that Steinberg took away the Direct X plug in support. What I do is use VST plug ins. The other reason I choose Cubase is its a cross platform solution. Suppose I had a MacBook Pro & somebody swiped it. I could go buy a Dell notebook for instance & continue making music. Just load the DVD or CD & off I… Read more »

When I create music I prefer to use the least numbre of software with the highest features. Reaktor is an excellent example. This is what I intend to buy God willing.
Microtonic, maybe some stuff from Audio Damage & Waldorf Bundle. I believe one should keep it simple. I’m not an expert but watch what the big companies who’ll I won’t mention. They want a commission. Please research your stuff & don’t go crazy spending money or downloading free VST or AU plug ins. You can forget the purpose no the love of creating music. Have a good one.

Thanks Ronnie, I understand Reaktor’s a beast of a program. My impression was a cheap way to have more instuments & effects without having to buy another VST and/or AU. Reaktor reminds me of reason with the Refills in this case Ensembles. Right now I’m still formulating choices for tools. I believe in the adage of keeping it simple. Have you used Dimension Pro? If you have or know someone who personally does I’d like their impressions on its power. I been using Cubase SL 3 since 2004. Who knows what my circumstances maybe having Reaktor looks at an insurance… Read more »

I’m gonna have to do some serious thinking about Reaktor. You can get lost sounds are one thing but multitudes of effects & instruments can drive a dude crazy. Here’s a trick I learned: Take a drum machine in Reaktor & load in the send fx. You can add a delay & other tools to give it musical feel. I think I spelled a word wrong anyway its something I learned by playing with the demo.
