Steinberg Cubase 5
Installation is very simple (follow instructions).

There are some incompatibilities with some old VSTI virtual instruments when using the 64 bits cubase 5.


PC with Intel Quad Core, 8GB RAM, Sound Card Steinberg CI2

Software running very well. It also works great on a small laptop that I have with a lower config. Problems arise when one starts using a little too VST or VSTI instrument.


For nearly a year. It is very complete.

Steinberg Cubase 5

* The installation is done it without problems? No major problem but a crash with one version 5.0:
Have you experienced any incompatibilities? not
The general configuration is easy? bp without particular
The manual is clear and sufficient? yes except I find it unfortunate and quite incomprehensible that the tutorial plug-in does not receive a printed manual (now on DVD)


* What is the configuration of your computer? (Motherboard / CPU / Ram / Disk / sound card ..)
Brand new computer is based on a gigabyte card processor, iCORE July 4 cores, 4 G0 RAM, sound card MAUDIO Layla 24/96, 2 HDDs Samsung F1 1T0, N210 video card, 64-bit Windows 7 pro

This software + hardware is stable? yes

The software works he correctly on this configuration?
No major pb management impossible except in the 96 khz with bugs in the project config (unable to copy a pattern in the track beatdesigner noon routing problem SDIF output)

What performance? very efficient but the ram is limited to the reverb impression with intermittent red zone. The pb is in the process of resolution for version 5.5, otherwise the classic reverb software operate without pb.


* For how long have you been using it? 1 week

* Did you try many other models before getting this one? For years I know Cubase, so I master quite well. Knowing software means more time for music and less for oware computer and / or read the manual

What thing do you like most/least about it?
+: Very ergonomic, very full, almost no need to go install too much to make a serious side to the home studio. All in one side is a plus especially with the right tools. The window opening projects from version 5.1.1 is a real plus with a real typical setup for each shot of guitar, voice. Very significant

-: It does not comes to mind (if not a joke tautological: it is not software that makes the inspiration :-)

What is your opinion about the value for the price? more honest, very good if we measure the work of product development.

Knowing what you know now, would you make the same choice? undoubtedly

Steinberg Cubase 5
Installation without problem on XP and Windows 7 64 bit.
Configuration relatively easy when you know cubase.
No inconsistency.
Manual clear and thick:) .
I made several updates without worry (I'm 5.1.1)


PC Q9650, 8 GB RAM, RME 9632 and Windows 7 64 bit, yes it is very much more stable than XP because + of RAM. The software works well but I think the CPU gauge in the red tape quickly, strangely I could improve latency under XP. I'm still working on big projects with lots of effects and vst. The freeze is my friend.


I have used two months before I cubase studio 4, I tried many programs before including ProTools, Logic, Ableton Live ...

For now I am satisfied Cubase is a very complete and rather simple. Of course, I customizable keyboard shortcuts and macros (that can transform Cubase), the power MIDI, audio editing, the multitude of effects and features pretty good quality. Among the new features of V5 designer and I like to beat VariAudio.

What I like least is the updates that are slow as usual Steinberg, bugs not corrected, aberration in some functionality (Media bay, automation, mixer, windows management ...): No which prevents them from working, but it misses the perfect software because of these glitches.

The price is good value in light of what has since cubase software Cubase is damn well stocked, so he does everything pretty well thought.

Steinberg Cubase 5
No problem to install, no.
No software incompatibility slipped like a glove in my environment.
Setup is very easy and does not dpayse a Cubase user, I think a new guy (user) aisment navigate.
The manual is very well done and trs is complete (it is more paper!) Has the MRIT to exist (see the lack of manual era o I acquired SX3 ).


Processor core 2 duo E 6400
Motherboard Asus P5B Deluxe
2 GB of RAM
Wami Rack 192X sound card
All under Windows XP SP3
No problem with this machine resource, and since Cubase 4 I noticed a marked amlioration performance, the software appears to be less processor intensive. However it seems will appreciate the 2 GB Ram and I think almost a minimum working ease.


I use Cubase 5 since its release on the market and to be honest since 2002 with Cubase Cubase VST 5. I went through all the known versions and since this latest version is the most stable evidence Steinberg has put out only one day of this software since its release.
Steinberg has made a big effort because it ad line with other publishers (Logic and Live).
Milk cows like me who achtent the new edition every time they are not, however, trs Epargne, but hey, if it is to advance our tool is for a good cause : as my financial resources of my permit, why not?
I do it again this choice is sr!
