Problem was always, in my opinion, the lack of a proper channelstrip (solved with version 7.0) and the lack of a proper algorithmic reverb (solved with version 7.5
oh sure, those were the problems with Cubase. Not the impossibility of re-arranging track in the mix console, not the missing undo for the mix console, not the impossibility of saving mix console scenes, not the impossibility of preserving mono tracks when exporting stems (unless 1000 clicks), not the missing of a bounce in place function, etc...
And still in 2014 we need to manually copy files with the settings, etc... as we don't have an open dialog window where to choose our preferences/settings/etc from.
but sure, what Cubase was missing was an algorithmic reverb...even though many 3rd party products are better.
