Completed this tune using Cubase 8.5. Despite some automation issues and some hang on exit issues I worked through it all.
Played a Roland TD-20 kit into Cubase to trigger Toontrack Metal Machinery SDX. Guitars are all Overloud TH3. So all in the box. Used a bunch of the Slate Digital stuff for mixing (VMR, VBC, VTM). Also a couple Waves odds and ends.
