Dear Steinberg,(and others who like reading this):
I just want to thank you big time for having created an astonishing DAW over the years.
I started in the mid-nineties working with Cubase VST on a Mac G3 OS9 and i remember the very first VST plugins like LM7
I was dazzled by which you could do with Cubase, just amazing.
But i am the kind of person that always wants to try out new/other musicsoftware, like having new toys.
Why ? Cause i am a child i guess
So i travelled in all those years from Cubase VST to Logic 7/8/9/Logic X, Live 2/3/4/5/6/7/9, Studio One, and Reason 4/5/6/7 (all on mac) and then, last year, i deciced to buy Cubase 7, cause it was new and me like new music software.
And OMG, i just fell in love again with Cubase, just like back in the days with Cubase VST.
You can pretty say i have "done" all major DAWS thoroughly (most of the time Logic and Live) and in my opinion, i have landed and will stay with Cubase, cause, well it's just a beautiful program with loads and loads of functionality that for me are just heaven and breathtaking.
The amazing looking GUI ,the Chordtrack, the Midi fx plugins, the Logical Editors, the Keycommands Editor, the Drum Editor, the incredible amount of editing features, the top sounding MPEX stretch algorythms (Ableton, eat your heart out !),the solid sounding soundengine (Ableton,eat your heart out!), Hitpoints, Variaudio , all this functionality just gives me the shivers.
I am learning my head off with watching Cubase tutorials till late in the night, having so much joy with getting the grips 100% of Cubase, it's my passion !
( btw: i highly recommend the tutorials from Holger Steinbrink from Tutorize.com , when you understand German language, cause you can hear in his voice that he's enjoying Cubase so much and his tuts are well made and so helpful)
One more thing:
Ofcourse I experience bugs, odd thangs and an occasional crash of Cubase.
Don't we all ?
But who give's a sh*t ?! :
NO DAW, and i mean NO DAW is perfect, believe me, "i have seen them all".
For me, Cubase is THE example of Deutsche Grundlichkeit.
Dear Steinberg, keep up the amazing work you do !
