Hey ,
Ive been useing cubase for about a year now , but its a pirate version of SX2 and im really fed up with crashing and i want to go legitimit. I find the fact i have access to almost any software too overwhelming like being given too much power. Im planning on building a new system and i want it to be solid and pirate free i have a budget of about a £200 for the sequencer software so i cant afford SX3. ive been looking at Pro tools m-audio and cubase SL and i cant decide which one i should get?

I have a delta 1010LT (4 x stereo in/out) thus my interest in pro tools, i like to record straigt forward electronic pop songs aswell ass odd things i have outboard effects and instruments like a reverb, microkorg and a akai sampler ( i got it for free !!! ), i use quite a bit of midi sequencing aswell as recording, occasionally i record with 2 mics and i mess allot with old tape machines and circuits and pass them through my microkorg.

what are the advantages of both bits of software what are they better suited for? or do they pretty much function the same? do you think im going for software way too powerfull for my needs? cheaper alternatives? is there a significant difference betweeen how much cubase and pro tools hog the system resources? Ive been looking around I cant understand what is so great about m-powered? and what are the significant cuts down from SX to SL ?

hmm lots of questions Embarassed

thanks

Uh.. OK. I dunno. SX is reasonably OK. Personally I think only the full Pro PT suite with hardware and the lot is a sensible product. The "semipro" PT doesn´t make much sense. Go for Cubase SX instead.

I got Cubase VST pretty cheaply along with my EMU 1820 soundcard - I don't know if you can buy it standalone. It suits my purposes OK. I'm not sure what the differences are between it and SX.

I think the full Pro Tools suite.. all the expensive hardware and stuff.. is pretty nice. Unless you think you need to learn PT in order to become a pro producer in a PT only shop then you will be better off with something else. Digidesign is of course in a state of panic at the moment and the M-Audio/PT strategy is an attempt to get new recruits to the PT platform.
