I'm an old school Cubase user going back about 25 years. Even though it was my favorite DAW, its instability caused me to look elsewhere (Studio One). Version 12, however, appears to have been cut from a different cloth. Extremely full-featured, it nevertheless has been as steady as a rock - mostly. There's been the occasional lockups when trying out new plugins, but generally, I'm able to get a lot of work done without pulling out my hair because of crashes.

Cubase 12 has everything I need - scoring, snap to scale, alternative scales, impressive effects, VariAudio, sampler, ASIO-Guard, etc. I can go on and on. I'm glad that, with Cubase 12's new complexity, its workflow is still silk-smooth. There's nothing worse than having a workflow stymied by extra hoops you have to jump through.

I've been Cubase from the beginning with an Atari1040ST and later on I switched to PC.

Till today!I tried also other DAW's but Cubase is the one that siuts best for me.

It is easy to use, offers a nice workflow and has so many features that makes me save time.

Best DAW ever. I switched from Logic some years ago I never regretted.

Very good MIDI handling, Media bay is very well implemented and a decent set of out of the box plugins.

And now Steinberg seems to listen tu its userbase too. Well done.

Review updated as of 2020: I bought the upgrade to 10.5 Pro but I'm still using Cubase 10 Pro. Both and particularly 10.5 have many issues (random errors) or at least they are not easy to use (if I'm the one to blame when they freeze or mute the output without any error messages). It is frustrating to work with Cubase. I can only use it if I limit myself to some of its features (e.g. I have stopped using MIDI Sends). After reading that many problems of 10.5 haven't been fixed in Cubase 11 (https://forums.steinberg.net/t/official-unofficial-thread-was-it-fixed-ask-answer-community-group-thread-updated-11-24-2020/158454), I don't feel encouraged to upgrade anymore.
