Decided it was time to get a bit more involved in Cubase and purchased the Absolute 3 collection. Most of my recording is audio and midi is noticeably absent. The download manager performed flawlessly and luckily having the Fios gigabit service the download was very quick. Each of the 11 pieces loaded and extracted and some upgrades went through as easily.
There is much more to this than I thought with regards to content. Spent a a few hours printing manuals which I prefer to hold while reading instead of electronically flipping pages. The standalone versions all work very nicely and I’ll be working on my midi triggering devices which still need a bit of tweaking.
While I have only a few new test tracks created, I can see this will add a couple of missing parts to my “stuff”. Learning how and where to implement it will a greater challenge but the performance of the VST’s are great. Credit where credit is due and this is a terrific collection
