If I don't have a separate control room and studio, mainly work alone, and my patch bay is set up so I hardly ever need to patch anything to break into the normaled connections, is there some real benefit of using the Cubase Control Room then? I've opened it and sort of know my way around and I see how it works but what's in there for me that I don't see?

Here's a few

Mono checking, multi monitor auditing, alternate mix checking, sub mix leveling, monitoring at a comfortable level without affecting the standards based level that exports ... I'm sure I'm missing a few.

Listen bus too or whatever it's called. The (L) button on the mixer ties into the CR. In the CR you can set how much it dims the other channels when you click the listen button in a channel.
