I bought a Yamaha Motif XF keyboard a while back and it came with Cubase AI 5, which I love a lot. So far, I have stuck strictly with audio recording. The effects that came with AI 5 are very impressive, but I’m looking to expand my horizons. I was considering updating to the Cubase 6.5. What are some of the advantages/disadvantages to such an idea? That would cost me about $400. Or would I be better buying some extra VST effects and stuff like that? (I’m sort of new to this world of music production)
That depends completely on what you want to do. I would suggest you take a good look here to compare different versions of Cubase 6 and also compare it to what you have now. Spend cash accordingly
I literally laughed at that one. Thanks for the info, buddy!
