Pros

I love the Plugins, And it comes with beautiful graphics with helps the user to edit the project and encourage me to work more. It beginners friendly and It acquires little effort to produce a song.
I continue to see the full creative potential in my music production thanks to the great features in Cubase, where it has helped me carry out my music production on a more professional level.
The thing I like most about this software is the workflow when it comes to tracking. I feel that the user interface is perfect for that matter in fact.

Pros

It is a great programme for producing any audio output I should want. It is very easy to use and to me it represents very good value for money.
I've been using AVS to make my own custom ringtones for years for my Android and iPhone devices and it's easy and super fun to do.
I frequently need to utilise audio editing to edit or modify the audio to help with emphasis on the video's subject. I can accomplish that quickly and effortlessly because of this programme.

Cons

The drum machine is clunky, and the endless array of options can get you lost in menus.
There are too many features that I do not need and these pollutes the menus and interface in general.
Cubase's GUI windows seem to have trouble taking on the modern paradigm of fullscreen apps, and windows and viewing parameters often reset themselves. The GUI coding feels old.

Cons

I have used programs that have more technical control but that creates a whole new set of problems.
As mentioned above, missing Audio processing in Mixer mode.
That repair is more time costly than anybody allows for. However - just send (or recall) the actual audio files.

The best audio recording software

All in all Cubase is a wonderful audio editor and very stable, I would recommend it to any producer.

Pros

The interface of Cubase is simple and easy to navigate and use, it is not resource hungry and is an amazing audio editor.

Cons

The piano roll is a little to small in comparison to other DAW,s making it a little harder to plot ideas without a midi controller.

Cubase, the boss of all Daws

Reviewed a year ago

Thanks to Cubase, I can compose my pieces directly live on my Piano thanks to the formidable management of the midi in Cubase.

Pros

Cubase is, in my opinion, the perfect Daw for any musician and sound engineer. the power made available is exceptional, the options of the logic editor, and the mixer window are probably the most complete of all Daw. Being able to add audio effects to raw audio clips without going through the mixer and modifying audio in offline mode is unique among all the Daws I've used.

Cons

However, what poses a problem at my level is its complexity. for a beginner, this is not necessarily the software that I will recommend, but still beginners can get used to it if they have good documentation, which Cubase provides 100%

Software essenziale di riferimento per produzione audio

Reviewed 2 years ago

Sicuramente tra i migliori editor audio finora testati per attività di recording e mixaggio, ottimo per la qualità degli strumenti virtuali e della gestione dei plugin. Potrebbe essere più leggero e necessitare di meno memoria, soprattutto per utilizzo su PC non recentissimi.

Pros

E' un software di riferimento per produzione audio, ricco di funzionalità e con un'ottima interfaccia utente, ottima gestione dei plugin e degli strumenti virtuali.

Cons

In alcuni casi trovo poco intuitivi alcuni menu e strumenti, inoltre richiede molta memoria e spazio su disco.

Steinberg Cubase Review

Reviewed 2 years ago

I continue to see the full creative potential in my music production thanks to the great features in Cubase, where it has helped me carry out my music production on a more professional level. Whatever goal I set for myself, Cubase has helped me achieve it easily and quickly in an efficient way.

Pros

There is so many features to choose from, but my most favorite feature is the track creation. I can create Audio, MIDI, Instrument or even Video tracks. I can also create Effect tracks that can easily be added as an Insert or Send. Another great feature is that I can organize all my tracks in sections by grouping them into Folder tracks, including BUS and Effect tracks and have a well organized structure with a clean look. So, Cubase is so easy to use that even a beginner would immediately fall in love with.

Cons

I'd love for Cubase to implement a feature where you could easily clean an Audio track in the Editor with two clicks. Click one: This function would highlight all final steady state pressures. Each highlighted part would have an "X" option that would appear when hovering the mouse over it and that would indicate to remove it. Once all parts have been checked, this is where click two comes in, "Confirm/process". And that is it. I believe this is a great feature to implement to the Editor because if you have to do some cleaning on a complex audio track like I do always, then It's time consuming.

Software Review

Reviewed 4 years ago

An open minded audio landing/dumping software that can give you or receive back edited or externally manipulated tracks for combination as much as professional standard internal recordings. It's a clearly ambitioned contender or peer for the audio dumping/recording for production and it can handle a generous number of tracks with exceeding fluidity and no huddles. Worth noting, a good audio conversion rate and turn around, data to play back ready audio mono or stereo track.

Pros

An above standard multi track build on board. It is the ultimate place for building a multi-track audio project for both audio production or video production, it is a good landing/audio dumping and recording platform that can inpart or infull give you the manipulated mastering ready audio. In essence you can do all the production individual track or multi/live tracks for direct or indirect manipulation.

Cons

Not a tool for the naive, but for its niche much tolerable, for the preparation will hatch grand results. Definately needs someone to boot you in here, or take a few days to get a feel of it. On the contrary a definate professional tool, so it is definately not for the trial and era kind of user.

It does the job and it does it well, but I don't use it for all its capabilities, mostly for recording vocals and it's one of the best.

Pros

High quality audio output is what you get when recording before editing is done. Editing is done to perfect a good audio.

Cons

The interface can be complicated sometimes.

Why you should consider Cubase as a DAW!

Reviewed 3 years ago

Cubase is a massive software excelling at mixing and mastering tasks but offers a high variety of quality audio manipulation and sound design software.

Pros

The thing I like most about this software is the workflow when it comes to tracking. I feel that the user interface is perfect for that matter in fact. The one thing I also noticed is that tracking gives me better results in Cubase than my other DAW of choice and therefore I prefer Cubase for tackling some tasks. Of course the huge variety of tools that help you make music is just massive with Cubase letting you pass on purchasing some third party plugins that usually are needed to improve your workflow.

Cons

Only con that I can think of is that like most DAWs, Cubase is a super complex software and definitely not beginner friendly. Luckily, the internet is full of tutorials and certified teachers.

Recording Ideas with Cubase Is Superbly Easy!

Reviewed 3 years ago

I was very surprised at Cubase's scoring notation feature - as this is something I will definitely use. For music to film composers - the whole process of writing music to film is made extremely easy, without the need of purchasing of any external hardware.

Pros

If you have creative musical ideas and need something to record those special moments with minimum fuss, then Cubase is exactly what you need. The setup for layering tracks in Cubase is straight forward and you'll be able to navigate the interface of the software with keyboard shortcuts, loops and record multiple tracks on-the-fly, without having to stop recording. That's one of the most creative parts of using this program!

Cons

I had trouble setting up my audio interface and getting drivers for low latency, but with watching a youtube video and a few little tweaks, all was fixed. It would be good if a wizard was built into the audio driver sound device setup.

Dans l'ensemble, mon expérience avec Cubase a été très positive. Malgré les défis initiaux d'apprentissage et de configuration, le logiciel offre une qualité audio exceptionnelle, une grande variété de fonctionnalités professionnelles et une fiabilité inégalée.

En tant qu'utilisateur de Cubase, j'ai remarqué que le logiciel peut avoir une courbe d'apprentissage abrupte pour les débutants, et que la configuration des périphériques audio et MIDI peut être complexe. De plus, je note que le prix initial d'achat peut être élevé par rapport à d'autres logiciels de production musicale.

Definitely positive, really good learning curve, and in the bottom line it really helps me make music.

Pros

Great MIDI editor, easy to install plugins, lots of really good guides, both the manual and online tutorials, sn a lot of really useful stock plugins.

Cons

The update pricing not reasonable in my opinion, as upgrading from version 10 to 11 cost the same as upgrading from 5 to 11. Also, sometimes projects take a while to load, but I guess that happens in all DAWs, and depends on the computer recourses and specs.
