I have been a Cubase user ever since I got the VST 3.7/WaveLab package 14 years ago. Although it took me some time to get comfortable with all the goodies I needed, once I got there I looked forward to the upgrades - and during the journey through Studio II, SL2, Studio 4, and Cubases (is this really a plural?) 6, 6.5, 7 and now 7.5, not only have I benefitted from the improvements over the years, but for the most part, I had fun all along the way!
I have no qualms about spending the extra $50 for 7.5, because the extras that came with it are worth much more than the cost of admission.
Thanks Steinberg, for making it possible for me to focus on what I’m recording, and a lot less having to re-learn the software. Keep up the excellent work!
