I realise this kinda isn’t the right place for this but I’m unable to post in the ‘Cubase 5 and earlier’ section, so apologies.
I have Cubase LE5, but obviously as a free package, it has quite a few limitations.
I’m considering investing in Cubase Essentials 5, but what I want to know is whether it’s worth the money- for the £126 they currently ask, will CE5 give me the things that CLE5 doesn’t- the larger HAlion package, the greater range of effects, the ability to create mp3’s without buying the encoder etc?
I realise CE5 will still have its limitations, and I’m not expecting the full works, clearly!
But in a scenario where I want to record things such as a band (guitars, keys, kit etc) to an intermediate level and be able to do some editing etc without having to fork out huge amounts on loads of expansion packs, is it worth it?
