Cubase LE 6 on PC is WORST app I have used in YEARS

been sequencing and sampling for 20 years, and I write web apps for a living ... apologies to those who love Cubase -- it can suck my enlarged dong.

ENTRY LEVEL CUBASE 6 LE FOR PC is the worst application I have used in years. It is the worst application I have ever used for the basic application it is intended for.

what a lesson in frustration just for basic midi editing.

disgusting. Short this app / company.

Sequencing and sampling aren't really my thing, but I know a lot of guys here like for that reason. Couldn't really say one way or another but I have been a Cubase user for seven years and I find it very easy to work with. Perhaps there's some features in the full version that make life a lot easier that aren't in the LE. Again, just speculating and someone elese can chime in here and give you a better idea.

Well, maybe you shouldn't go with an entry level version (it comes free with magazines) if you expect professional and deep editing options.

Cubase is easily one of the best DAWs in regards to MIDI editing.

Mind to share which is that "basic application it is intended for" you are thinking of?

Very VERY counter-intuitive program indeed, the flow sucks.

So what is your favourite DAW in that regard and what does it offer that Cubase doesn't?

Also, why exactly do you disregard Cubase so much in that aspect?

Care to back this up a bit? What is different to what you'd consider a great workflow?

Cause it just seems like a random rant until now!

If it wasn't for Cubase I wouldn't be able to sequence my hardware synths.

Though I'm still using Cubase Studio 5.

So, OP, what do you consider to be a good daw?

I really like Cubase 5. MIDI editing is a super easy and it syncs with REason easily (in my case, for more sounds).

I find it amusing reading people's complaints about free or "lite" versions of professional software; just buy the full suite, already!

You lost me with these two lines.

You been this for 20 YEARS!!!! And then you decide it would be a good idea to try an "Entry Level" version of a new DAW to then smear it on an online forum....magnum facepalm....

Ableton Live, for both of your questions.

Ableton is powerful, maybe the only DAW up on par with Cubase in terms of MIDI (not sure if Logic is still there...)

In regards to the other questions, I have the impression that you can't really answer them as your experience with Cubase seems to be very limited.

Since your judgement was so radical, I was hoping you could actually name a few features that you miss in Cubase! I'm guessing you can't!

As to the OP, as pointed out by another poster here, his statement obviously is more of a joke than anything!

My Mac died, so while waiting for new Mac to arrive, I tried cubase on my PC to see if was missing anything. I wasn't.

I will say, however, that the "notes" or "comments" text entry box on each track is nice feature I'd like to have in ableton.

Opcode's "studio vision" is my favorite midi sequencer app of all time, but sadly defunct for modern hardware.

I'm gonna try that prosonus "studio one" DAW. They wrote that as an answer to cubase bloatedness and non-intuitive workflow and workspace / lousy window metaphor / odd UI.

20 years? Seriously? And you complaining about a giveaway (free) version?! You sure you meant to write 20 years?

Yes, 20 years, kiddo.

The high end version of cubase has the exact same shitty window metaphor / UI design pattern. Now I remember why I haven't used it in years.

Yeah, THAT was the reason.

Nice trolling btw, I fell for it initially, now it's just too plain obvious!

Yeah, thanks daddio.

I've been using Cubase since 1990. Did you get LE from your son or something? No professional puts in time on LE unless he's completely snookered.

It's the same looking window, who doesn't know that(?) but you were talking MIDI before on a limited feature set version primarily for the uninitiated virgin DAW user.

Seriously, old fella, if you don't like it, don't use it. Prattling on about it and mentioning your private parts as if that is supposed to convince us you're some world weary industry dude on a mission is pretty strange behaviour, wouldn't you say? What is all this meant to prove? You must be old enough to just let stuff like this go...

All the best

Some people who brag of "having 20 years of experience" just have one year of experience 20 times.
