stable - Reviews Steinberg Cubase SX 2

Steinberg Cubase SX2 has been upgraded at this point but I still own it and can provide a good review. At first glance for a newbie it can be a little bit overwhelming if you havent worked with any DAW’s before. Or even if you have worked with other DAW’s you will still need to pull out the manual because everything is a little different than you are probably use to. When installing it on my Dell laptop it gave me no troubles at all and it was a pretty quick installation. All of your basic functions with it like play, record, stop, are right in front of you and easy to find. Its just when you want to get more indepth with some stuff that you will have to learn all of the menus and how to navigate through them. Its not hard at all, you will just have to get use to it and get the feel of Cubase SX2 first.


Steinberg Cubase SX2 works great on my system, I don’t think I had any problems with it ever. Everything with it is pretty good with CPU , keeping your CPU down when working with a DAW or music program is crucial because it can make your system start to get a little fuzzy. When I was using SX2 I was using it with a lot of plug ins and even some hardware running in through my Behringer interface. At first I couldn’t figure out how to get all of my midi and stuff set up with the audio. It was a difficult task, even after reading through the manual it still took sometime for me to get it.


Overall, Cubase has been doing DAWS for years now and they continue to be one of the best on the market. It this is your first time around with Cubase SX2 you could be hooked and wont use any other DAW’s on the market.
