This is a bit true, I must admit, in my personal experience. I do music for a living in L.A. -- have been for 16 years. Many people here in the "professional" world don't really know much about Cubase. Yeah, I know: Hans Zimmer etc, but I know a lot of successful younger composers and producers here and almost all of them are on the other big name DAWs. This absolutely doesn't mean that Cubase is any better or worse, just that I rarely ever see it used in the professional worlds that I'm in, in Los Angeles. I'm sure some use it -- I just haven't come across them personally. For some reason many just don't really know much about it, and it hasn't permeated the pro market here like the other DAWs have, from my experience.AP wrote:If you mention Cubase in Los Angeles they look at you like Cu what!!!
ALL DAWs have issues, and if you go any forum of any DAW maker you'll see tons of complaints like you do here. Cubase has a good amount it needs to improve from a core DAW perspective (Mac GUI issues, processor efficiency, GUI inconsistencies, automation handling, warping directly in the project window, etc.) - on that I will agree, and I'm hoping it's on the plate extremely soon. But to say "(insert DAW here) is better than Cubase!" is simply not true. They all have issues and all will frustrate you in certain ways.
