Why the H*ll do you use a full version Cubase for that??? And then complain about the price/cost.
You got free-ware that can take care of that, or Cubase Elements at a much lower price.
Do you really think someone will this rant of yours seriouesly?
Keep on, and you gonna have your behind verbally kicked.
Do you even know what Cubase is capable of? To what price?
I began starting to set up my studio 30 years ago (it was a dream at that point). It took me 16 years of training (to gain knowledge enough) and saving for equipment before I could open my doors to clients. I had to reach certain level at both parts before even thinking about getting paid for my work.
If I started up today, I could put together a studio in a year. But would be short of 15 years of experience, that can’t be measured in money.
With Cubase and a decent computer, a good interface/soundcard, some monitors and little else you can start your recording career at a fraction of a price.
Not only that, you can do X times more things with Cubase than you ever could before the DAW’s got mature.
I did my last job on analog tape the year I started up (started with Logic on PC for the grand opening). The cost of 15 min worth of tape was about the same as an update for Cubase these days (give or take).
Kids today are spoiled when it comes to opportunities to start their way to recording stardom, at a very low cost IMHO.
I’m sick and tired of people ranting of the price of Cubase. Even though Nuendo is may DAW of choice, I’ll gladly admit that Cubase is the “most value for money” DAW out there.
Can you see behind the curtains/drapes what you really get for the money? Or the history behind it all?
Can you understand that someone has to develop and make this piece of software? Man hours are worth exactly the same whether making hardware and/or software, or houses for that matter.
I usually don’t attend in this kind of discussions. But when something stupid as this are allowed to grow in a forum, I’ll try to bring it into perspective.
So now, let’s all go make some music. Young and old.
