I love Cubase and I’m using it since the great Atari days in the nineties.
I use Ableton Live as a second DAW. It’s my sketchbook for new ideas (quickly throwing in some loops) and I use it for live sequencing with my band. Although I’ve experienced that Cubase is live more stable, the scene play features of Ableton make it more suitable for live use. (And I don’t want to bother about a dongle playing live).
I’ve tried Logic, Cakewalk/Sonar and Fruity Loops, but it’s not for me. Don’t understand why ProTools is still an industry standard.
