Swaft: Isn't Nuendo the same as Cubase with regards to multitrack recording? The difference between Nuendo and Cubase, so far I know, is the the video/multimedia aspect of Nuendo which isn't in Cubase.

If you can afford it then why not, but so far I know Nuendo is priced about 3x that of Cubase.

Hello Corno I think you are correct I have never gone for the version with video & multi media as I am still finding wonderfull things that I can do in cubase I have not yet mastered VST 32 Version 5 yet I first started with cubasis which I got with my 1st computer many moons ago Mind you I am tempted to go for the upgrade to SX but cannot make up my mind whether the extra cost could be justified:cheers: Sparky

Since the last Version of Cubase 5 and now in the last Cubase Products since Cubase SX you can already work and mix Midi, Audio and Video. The Advantage of the old Versions until Version 5.0 was, that the Score Editor was able to handle the most complex editing of the Scores. I edited my first Symphony with the last Version of Cubase 5 and it looked great. The new Cubase was programmed on the Basis of Nuendo. The old Cubase Structure was different. If you are interested than read the article of Werner Kracht, who was, together with Michael Michaelis, the main programmer of Cubase for Atari and Mac. Use the following link and move to "Programme".

I've worked fairly equally with the various versions of Cubase, Cakewalk and Cool Edit for the past 6 - 8 years. The one that has dropped by the wayside in the past 2 years is Cakewalk which I never thought would happen because I used to use it almost exclusively.

The last version of Cool Edit Pro (complete with CD burning add ons and 5.1 mixer) is still able to give the high-end programs a run for their money and I'm still able to churn out a high-quality multitrack mix with effects with this program. CE Pro also gets a lot of use when I'm copying old vinyl and cassette recorings to CD as it has one of the most - if not the most - excellent noise reduction algorithms I've come across.

I use Cubase SX a fair bit now too as it has excellent effects and a fairly intuitive interface.

I downloaded FlexiMusic Wave Editor (http://www.fleximusic.com/waveditor/overview.htm), an audio recorder and editor with more options for editing.

Hi guys,

my working horse is CAKEWALK SONAR 3 Pro Edition and I really love this program. I use the Cakewalk software since years, beginning with the earlier version Cakewalk Pro Audio. I really prefer it to Cubase, because on my opinion it is more user friendly designed - that is, you needn't go through the menu jungle or to read the USER'S MANUAL any time you are in trouble to find some specific option. Every new option in CAKEWALK is normally there, where you expect it to be, and the said problem is solved just by the right click of the mouse. That's why I like Cakewalk more than Cubase, Sibelius more than Finale, SoundForge more than WaveLab.

The sound engines are great by the both of these programs - so it is more a matter of habit, and, as mentioned, the interface of Cakewalk seems to me more convinient to use.

Sonar 4 Producer here. It works flawlessly almost all the time, and it has integrated perfectly with all my sound modules and FW-1884. On the rare occasions it crashes, it crashes hard -- completely locked computer and cold boot required. But those instances are infrequent. I also find the interface quite intuitive and easy to use.
