ok what shall i say. i am using cubase for about 15years now. i think steinberg is one (not the, one!) of the most innovative creators of audiosoftware. they are the founders of VST and thats all what i want to say. unfortunately i have the feeling that steinberg is resting oh there oars. maybe they need a kickass! so here is one thing they have to improve asap: GROOVEQUANTISATION. please steinberg! why can´t you just copy the feature from ableton live? in ableton the quantisation is kinda like a live effect. apart from that i´m quite satisfied with cubase5. so cubase gets my NOIZEFIELD GOLDSTAR AWARD!
