Most of my DAW sample player / synth / effect plugins offer AU, VST, and RTAS / AAX at the same time. I was using Cubase before I joined Vancouver Film School and then it was mandatory to work with ProTools because it was their skill-building platform. So I haven’t used Cubase for a long time (since 2004).
I normally work with ProTools to create my non-score oriented compositions (piano-roll style) using RTAS / AAX plugins but now that I have Dorico, I’m wondering if there is an advantage to do the piano-roll style composition in Cubase (using the VST components of those plugins plus the default VST plugin package that comes with Cubase Pro). I can take advantage of the 50% off offer and also the cross-grading from ProTools to Cubase that saves me quite a bit of money so it is a good incentive. But if I’m going to have the same seamless translation and features and advantages between ProTools and Dorico, then there is no point of learning another DAW and spending money even if it is a good offer.
Please advice. I have 2 or 3 more days left on Cubase Pro offer.
