"Too expensive for how it runs"

When setting up cubase 5 I had no problems with compatibility at all, the set up was easy as can be and the manual was very clear.
All the functions and objects in the program I feel are very hard to use and take a very long time to master.
I dislike how over complex cubase is for a digital audio workstation.


On my set up of 4gb ram and 1.8GHz processor, this runs perfectly.
There is no lag when producing or recording in but I there always seems to be a little delay if recording piano through a mic to the playlist, this can be very annoying and you will have to do some real time moving work to get it in the right place which on this digital audio workstation is a bit of a pain.
I used it for about 2 months or a month before moving onto a different digital audio workstation as this one just seemed like too much hard work for what I managed to achieve.
I can not fault it in performance though but I just dislike how it seems to take longer to do things than it does on other DAWs.


It feels as though there is too much work you have to do to accomplish a simple task on this DAW.
The whole mixing down aspect of cubase 5 is a real horrible experience also, this is only my opinion but I just really dislike it.
Value for price is horrific, £600 for something as bad as this is an outrage in my opinion especially with the vsts that come bundled with it, they look like a teenager had put them together.
I would definitely not use this product or buy this product again at all, there is just something about it that is extremely frustrating about it.
I would go for a different DAW definitely.
This was the first DAW that I used and it almost put me off production all together. My friend told me to get another one and now I love producing again.
