If Cubase is excellent at something than it's MIDI editing. Man, the logic editor is reeeeeeally powerful, you can do almost anything you want. Yesterday I wanted to boost all the notes on beat 1 for a mallet track, to add some accentuation to it. Logic editor does it. Only thing is, I don't really feel at home in this thing. I always look for a preset that has the feature I need, and adjust it to taste. I never come up with an own preset because I just don't get into it so well.
Also veeery helpful is the context editor. For natural solo instruments I often have different articulations (stacc, port, leg) on different tracks. I record a take, and then I shift the notes onto the track I like. Very handy. Compared to using keyswitches in one track this has the advantage that you can always see which articulation plays which parts of the take.
Now I am in the process of learning keyboard shortcuts. They speed up working like hell. If only I could remember more than 8 or so
