Hey, after buying a Master Keyboard, which I played using a friends notebook with Cubase Pro, I need my own version of Cubase now.
On the compare editions site it only gives a total number of sounds that come with the different versions (I’m going for either Elements or Artist here)
This does not help.
What I know from my past playing around is that I like the “Warm Piano” sound in Halion Sonic 3, and I need to know which Cubase to choose to get that included (or possibly other high quality piano sounds, if you can recommend some?).
Next to that I liked paying around with audio effects a little bit. So far, I used pitch correct (for singing, which is only for fun and would be just a tiny benefit) and audio distortion.
Midi compressor would be a nice to have, but from the comparison page I understand that definitely not included in Elements. And this alone certainly not worth +200€ for Artist over Elements.
I spent the past 2 hours trying to get that overview over which sounds&effects come packed with the different versions of Cubase but wasn’t able to. How can that be so hard, am I so stupid?
Also, I’m probably going to buy an e-drumset the next weeks, so good sounds/recommendations for that would be appreciated too (or: starting what version they are included)
So in compact, what I need:
- good piano/e-drum sounds
- (electric guitar-like) audio distortion sound effect
just a good overview over what those “Pro / Artist / Basic Set” mentioned in the comparison is, and specifically which sounds and effects come included with the different Cubase versions.
Any link, pdf or opinion/other clarification appreciated,
