I was thinking of upgrading my recording software, right now i have Cubase LE, I was deciding between Pro Tools and Cubase SE3. What are your thoughts on this. And if you can take this into consideration, my software now only gives me 20 mp3 exports and will these do the same? do any give you unlimited?

Feb 15, 2008 09:12 pm ok...any particular reason for why?
Feb 15, 2008 09:34 pm Yeah, cuz proTools marries into their proprietary, over priced mess...Cubase allows you to use the hardware of your choice, plugins of your choice, etc...with PT youuse PT plugs, PT hardware, and all that...and it's twice the price for the same quality.
Feb 15, 2008 10:06 pm ok...im glad i found that out. thanks

Pro Tools is """""Industry Standard""""" which is idiotic. I can accomplish with my tiny *** Sonar 7 PE rig what a composers with pro tools can for 1/100th the cost, LITERALLY. If you want an example, please send me an E-Mail, and I'll illustrate. I've got nothing but time. :)
If what you're using Cubase LE, then upgrade. If you're using Cubase SX3 or later, and it works for you (which it absolutely should,) then by all means, use it.
If you need more, then in my humble opinion, you're not using what you have correctly.
Feb 16, 2008 08:48 pm Keith you are totally right. Pro Tools is and probably will forever be the industry standard. If you are ever going to try and work for a studio, you will have to know Pro Tools intimately.
Having said that, I have only had experience with Cool Edit/Adobe Audition, Pro Tools and the Mackie OS. I've heard great things about Cubase and I would love to try it out one day.

Feb 17, 2008 10:09 pm Pro Tools is fading from that Industry Standard faster then one might think. I have never believed in that nor will I ever believe in it. Nor will thousands of other like myself who don't want to be locked into an expensive and not easily expanded DAW. I would sooner go back to the Otari Radar and use racks full of external hardware then invest that much money in a closed ended system.

I have used Cakewalks products now mainly Sonar for many years. And honestly I have never had any problems running between PT based studio's or any other for that matter. And I haven't lost a job either due to not running the Industry Standard PT rig!
End of Rant.
