Steinberg Cubase SL 3
Installation without problem, this is an update to the SE for SL3 bnficier function CONTRL surface of my 01-X ... and in fact must uninstall SE and install SL3 (APRS council engineer at Steinberg France).
I met some inconsistency but only for my computer that have APRS plant before installation (so nothing to do with SL3) had CR itself multiple accounts (as I am the only user) which was crashing the boards SL3.Suivant Technician (thank you again), I reinstalled Windaube (without SP2 to see, I would put you later) on my from any computer and roll!
Configuration is easy for who knows Cubase, you can always help if the manual is clear and sufficient to use the first print.For + grows, there is the PDF in English unfortunately! (D'o my " 9 ", but I quibble)


With my laptop XP-M 2400 +, 512MB, 80GB external drive (USB2), SL3 works just normally.
SE with 16 tracks I'm running without problem, it's the same with SL3 and I must have some margin!
This config is trs stable.Pas innopins crashes ... but I have not t the bottom of the software, there are so many possibilities ...


I for 1 month and was enough for me, but I really wanted to enjoy the area CONTRL offered my 01-X (SL3 intgre function, I am using the Mackie control not ) so I jump down ... and I do not regret, what comfort!
Definitely a good choice trs, I would do without hsiter.

Installation: A formalized on a PC or Mac. Follow the manual and although enjoyable document.
on the other hand, we have to explain to the DMOS CDs and Hypersonic Halion provided "free" with ... BMD cl claiming to work ... it's more a dmo Well, it does not matter, I have not purchased a. ..


- PowerMac G4 466, 768 MB RAM, 2 GB HD 30 and 60 on Digi 001: Operation nickel, except that the G4 is really short (especially the original video: ATI Rage Pro) but works perfect Mylen that it is well below the config. minimum.
- Pentium IV 3 GHz, 2 GB Ram, 200 GB HD 2 Digi 002: sr Although, as with BCAN has nothing wrong, has sent!
- Notebook Asus A6000 Centrino 725, 1.6 GHz, 1 GB Ram, 80 GB HD 5400 rev / min on Digi 002 or AC 97 internal As good as the P IV!

Whatever the configuration with minimum latency, perfectly stable.


I have been using there, but the SL 3 is by far the most stable regardless of the config.
Even if all my work end up on Protools, what I like most about Cubase is primarily its adaptability: If something does not work in Cubase, it can be sr that has not work anywhere else! Then it is really he who does the actual work: I have Cubase SX 2 and it works even on a crappy AC 97 on a laptop PC! Finally the sound s'amliore srement slowly but over the VST versions of the engines ... The icing on the gteau: Ds that dveloppeur released a new plug-in or virtual instrument, it begins with cubase, so we can talk of references ...
What I like least, it is the plug-in board, and particularity the rverbs, it does not sound natural and you really have to work to get something. That said, part of the Protools HD3 Lexiverb Macintosh is the same everywhere ...
The price / performance ratio of Cubase SL3 is excellent, the best srement range
I am an instructor in computer music and the choice of software purchases from the training organization to which I belong is not based on my personal gots, but demand from artists trainees. The last word he who achter: By connecting a good sound card, the player will be in the hands of a really powerful tool!

Installing child.
No incompatibilities found, Cubase LE software is that all recognize the stuff!
Config extremely simple, using HTML and PDF manual complete and enjoyable to read.


Config teeth: Pentium 2.8 GHz, 2 gigabytes of RAM, Sound Card Edirol UA-101, so it all runs without even thinking!
An example: 5510 milliseconds latency input, output latency: 3175 milliseconds, or almost nothing ...
Config stable and reliable, no complaints.


I use it extensively at home for one month, having already rubbed shoulders with many other versions elsewhere.
I love everything about this software, it has its critics, who often criticize its austerity, it is Germany that thing, that's all I like!
I've tested Protools (good), Logic (which I have not loved the ergonomics but effective), and in another style Ableton Live (c but another use, it would be best to use both, Cubase and Ableton, which I intend to do).
Quality / price ratio ultimate choice I would do this with eyes closed

Steinberg Cubase SL 3
Install without any problems. We install the security key and Cubase (less than 5 min).
Not incompatible with my Yamaha 01x (on the contrary, the exchange protocol is perfect).
Config easy manual in French on paper impecable.


Acer laptop with a PIV 2.8 Ghz, 512 ram, it runs very well with a lot of tracks (40 with no problem if there are no plugs too greedy).
Config stable.

PC with a PIV 3.4 GHz and 2 GB of ram, not to saturate (my biggest project contains 75 audio tracks with Equal and automation of almost all, qq effects inserts, 6 Sends greedy: convolution reverb Example 3 and virtual instruments with MOTU Symphonic Orchestra)


I have a few months and I do not regret it.
I like the ease of use with an interface that looks like the hardware.
I made the comparison with Cubase SX 2 (less stable), Cubase SX 3 (much more expensive for very specific functions rarely used), and Cubase SE (this is really too light and not to use config 01x in the remote.)
Quality / price ratio rather good, I make the same choice without any problems.

Definitely a fan of Cubase SL 3, I tried Logic Express on intel mac for my girlfriend who does not want Cubase (grrr. ..) and the interface is frankly less thinking, the possibilities are below I found in it.
