Steinberg Warning in Deals Posted April 3, 2019 I switched to Cubase during the bleak days when Cakewalk was drifting abandoned, and I think it's an outstanding DAW, especially for me. Completely stable, seriously rich in features. I'm virtually all midi in what I do, and Cubase's midi tools are the best I have ever used. Period. I still use Cakewalk regularly, too -- I find it comfortable and intuitive for when I'm doing final mixes on my music, and I have a serious addiction to the ProChannel and its plugins, as well as the L-Phase EQ and Multiband. All my music that has been posted in the songs forum here was built in Cubase, and then exported and -- for lack of a better word -- mastered in Cakewalk. Even if I was not still a Cakewalk user on some level, I'd be on this forum, though. Great group of people, with lots of knowledge and a pretty good sense of humor, and in Larry's case an unerring ability to make me poorer. And hey, maybe one day Cakewalk will evolve its midi tools and give Cubase a run for its money! I'd switch back full time in a heartbeat. But if that did happen, I'd probably never know without hanging around here.
