According to this interview, Liam Howlett has used Cubase, presumably version 1.0 for Macintosh since he speaks equally of the Atari ST version. "Cubase was the obvious choice -- just because it's the most widely-used program. It wasn't out of any need to try and be clever -- I don't think it's the program you use that counts, it's what you've got in your head."more
"The @SteinbergMedia Cubase 8 Pro has really serious issues... It lags 2-3 times a minute on transport or MIDI editing... This is sucks. Cause you pay money each and every year for the update and finally you get less stability and more useless graphic prettiness that just eat a lot of your CPU and GPU running the same project sessions. So we're waiting for the immediate update from Steinberg to fix that. #steinberg #cubase #lag #bug #issue #music #production #daw"more
Cubase is a confusing-looking DAW, but it's easy to use once you become comfortable with the layout. Many things seem hidden, but there are many tutorials online that are very helpful! I typically use Vocaloid and Alter/Ego in Cubase as well as vst vocals, and I love having everything in one place.
