Cubase has a lot of great features to offer. You can do insanely deep stuff, and a lot of it makes great sense and opens a lot of possibilities to mix and create sound. Just look at Greg Ondos Cubase tutorials and you will see what awesome stuff you can do in the DAW and how many workflow shortcuts really exist under the surface.

But I should add that I like Ableton more for Beat creation.

If Ableton and Cubase were people, Ableton would have been a cool and hip person and Cubase would've been a modern professional person.
Go ahead. Choose the one that suits you the best.

Ableton is lean and rock solid. Cubase is a little bit of a mess when it comes to vestigial functions, quirks and other processes as it is still much wedded to multi track tape workflow. But ableton looses the MIDI feature of Cubase.

Hi!
I bought akai ableton and it's just great! Absolutely love it. I wasn't a huge fan of the first maschine software, but 2.6 is amazing. Everything is very streamlined to the controller perfectly with every parameter already mapped to the smart strips. I also haven't even had to use my keyboard since I bought it because of how perfect the keyboard function is with the jam. Just pick your root note, select your scale and every pad is in key. the only knock I have at all is that sampling with the jam isn't the easiest without a maschine controller but with any version of the maschine (mk2, mikro or studio) you have every little bit of control you could ever need. Really satisfied with this and can't wait to purchases the studio!
