As with all computer software the hardware is of equal importance. If you have a cheap computer or if you dont know how to set it up properly you're bound to get problems, especially with Windows drivers... (go BeOS! go BeOS!!)

Hi,

I think most people think too bad about Steinbergs Cubase, because they don't know how to use all the functions in Cubase. My opinion is, that Vubase is a very stable, professinal and easy to use software...

Go ahead Steinberg!!!

Andre

Looks like the previous post was a bit buggy too. Anyway : I am using VST on a AMD K6 with all kinds of peripherals you can think of, incl a MOTU Express XT on Win95. I must say that I don't have the problems concerning cubase stalling, but I do notice some problems with audio synchronisation and VST plugins. As a computer engineer I now that 60% of all application errors are due to the OS, including for Cubase. It's not Steinberg's fault that it made VST for no other completely disgusting OS than Windows. They should make it to run under Linux !

Bugs bugs bugs... welcome to the shady world of Steinbug's Cubase. I've used Cubase since it was on the Atari 1040 ST, unfortunately it's become a lot less reliable since then.

I can't help but feel this application has become too bloated for it's own good. There are more than an average number of serious bugs in this software, and despite what the previous writer said, they are unrelated to my hardware (which, for the record, I have a dedicated "clean" 450 mhz PC running Win98 - just for music software, plus a motu 2408 interface).

Here are just 2 of the ways I can crash VST 3.65: 1) set a smallish loop (maybe 2-4 bars) and set cycle on, so it repeats those bars (with audio) again and again. After 30 seconds watch windows freeze. 2) or leave cubase sitting idle for 15-20 minutes (I don't use screen savers, since they would pollute my "pure" music pc) Suddenly Cubase has locked the PC entirely. Without doing a single thing!! Ta da!

There are other such scenarios I could name, but I think the point has been made. I much prefer the GUI and methodology over Logic (which is obtuse as hell!) and Cakewalk (which lacks many useful features). But the buggy software drives me up the wall. I have 5 years invested in using Cubase, and yet I'm still thinking of switching to Logic 4.0, now that it's had a complete re-write and it supports ASIO too.

Maybe Nuendo will achieve all that VST promised but couldn't quite deliver on, but if you choose to go with VST, you better make a habit of religiously saving your work every 10 mins.
