Does anyone find it strange that we spend hundreds of dollars on DAWs such as Cubase Pro and then turn right around and spend hundreds more on audio plugins? Why do we do this? Aren’t the plugins that come with Cubase or other DAWs good enough? I moved from Sonar to Cubase a few months before they became Bandlab. Writing music in Cubase has been a joy but I really haven’t done much if any mixing in it. Nor did I do a lot of mixing in Sonar. My point is, being a mixing novice, how in the world would I know if the plugins provided with Cubase are any good or not? In the majority of mixing videos I’ve seen on YouTube where people are mixing with Cubase, they are using 3rd party plugins. Probably would make out better just getting the barebones sequencer and adding your plugins to it.
Just a curious thought, what say you?
