    I've used Cubasis, I think it's called, on my iPad before. I liked it better than Auria for sure.

        Check out Dom Sigalas on Youtube, he's Steinberg's demo guy and a recording tutor. Since I found him, I've probably cut hours off my working time just by using functions I already knew in a more streamlined way and learning new things I didn't know existed

          I have been using Cubase since almost 20 years.
          And, my latest version is Cubase 7, since I often refuse to upgrade (and save money).

          HOWEVER.

          Cubase 11 seems to really fix a problem for me that makes me wanna upgrade.

          Since I always records/mixes my albums in a long big project with all songs in a row, instead of individual projects for each song...
          That increases workflow, but there's just one catch with this approach.

          In the past it wasn't possible to mark several songs / parts at once and do mixdown of each song on the album in one click.

          Cubase 11 has introduced this with a big twist:

          If I upgrade now, I could actually MIXDOWN ALL SONGS, IN DIFFERENT FORMATS, IN ONE MOUSECLICK!

          I have wasted SO MANY HOURS on manually mixdowning every song, test listening the mix in different systems and then realizing "oh shit the bass is too low" or something and I have to go back and redo the whole thing for hours and hours...

          Now I can just remix, hit "export" (with all different songs in different files and formats) and do something else while it works on the process.

          So stoked to finally upgrade.

            I've been using it around the same time, always kept up with the latest version when it got discounted, but on the AI/LE/Artist track. I made plenty of releases on it and could never justify the outlay to get to Pro because 'there's enough function here to do everything I need', but since I upgraded to pro I've been kicking myself for not doing it earlier. I've found so many functions like the export tool that have made my life infinitely easier.

              I have Cubase "Pro" (wasn't called that back in 7 days) haha I just want the best of best, in case I actually need some of the top features

              But I could probably go long way with the cheaper versions just fine

                Exactly, you can do full releases with the cheaper versions no problem but, if you check out the features in the videos I posted, once you have them it's hard to live without them.

                The main one for me has been the A/B referencing via control room, being able to easily switch between multiple monitor sources (each with their own Sonarworks profile) and reference tracks which bypass any mastering on the two buss is a lifesaver. Also, no more forgetting to turn Sonarworks off before exporting because it's only on my monitor chain.

                There's another brilliant feature which Dom details somewhere in those videos, in Pro you can write in volume automation shapes directly on the event. This is really useful on vocal tracks where you might have a couple of severe peaks, you can adjust them on the track and stop your compression from having to work so hard. You can then set it more as a tonal flavour than having to set to deal with massive peak variance.

                  Yay, that A/B trick sounded very tempting to try!

                  Thats it. I'm getting Cubase Pro 11

                    I used to use Cubase then I lost my licence number and can use it anymore. I use pro tools first it came with the Focusrite interface for free.
