Unless you have 20 years of experience in professional studio as mixing or mastering engineer i assume we are just 2 hobbyists which share opinion aren't we?
Not sure what arguments i suppose to give but will try to argue subjectively as hobbyist,which could be totally opposite to real state of things
If you play guitar or bass and decide to record an idea and to try to develop it further at some point you need fx - if you don't know anything about vst and so on, you gonna count on integrated fx aren't you?
Cubase le has nothing even close to what i find in Bandlab Cakewalk as fx,chain options so on and this is just for a week !!!
Do you believe that extraterrestrials exist?
Despite among hundreds of thousands videos related ,there is no single one to show real alien or little green man and you can assume that whole idea is fake,
but my logic tells me that no way among countless galaxies with billions of starts and planets not to have a single civilization...
in fact there must be thousands of them if we think logically despite we never seen one of them ...
on the question,my subjective opinion is that it is important how many fx applicable to real instrument any DAW have and that's the only argument i can point right now cuz my statement was based on it,if something else pop up will inform the universe
May the force be with you
