I'm mixing hours of live material for my bst friend. He records into cubase sx2 on a win xp svc pack3 machine. Shit you not. Its stable. My copy of cubase 8 or whatever that I never updated wound up migrating to my new machine and then wouldn't see my motu gear. So he offered to buy me 11 after a friend made sure the SX files still basically opened, edits and time signatures etc, in 11 pro.
It took my a full day, like 12 hours of fiddling to figure out that my usual MOTU internal routing isn't to cubase's liking.... so I made a cubase template for my routing and now I just kick that shit on to work on Mike's stuff. I dock 1 star for being unlike every other DAW I have in how it deals with my MOTU's multiple monitors routing... and also for the dreary stock, gray look.... but all my outboard cheers me up fine. It also can't import basic mixer settings from older versions, so i have to reebuild any routing on this stuff,however I was ererouting to my console anyway. Otherwise this the best cubase ever. A real contender to this day. SX was my jam for 3 versions so this is like going home. The latency compensation allows me to use stuff in loops in real time like protools HD systems
I think Harrison and Steinberg need to team up and build the world beating DAW with the sonics, perfect latency compensaton track by track.... and workkflow both in mixing and midi.... it could be called Innuendo LOL or Mixbase 32C
