I've got Studio One for about a month and I use Cubase 6 a lot more. Because I know my way around. And it has features (for example general controller support and surround) that are not in Studio One. But Studio One has become some kind of 'playground'-DAW. It's fun to work in it and to come up with new ideas which will ultimately end up in Cubase 6. I even created a directory called 'playground' for all the doodles I made in Studio One

I've been talking to a lot of Pro's lately who have all dropped Cubase in favor of S1 after trying either the demo or setting it up as secondary DAW.

It really is good to hear

I was a Cubase user right from the start, our studio had it back in the Atari ST days.

A friend who I trust (a fellow Cubase user), told me about Studio One, "You HAVE to check it out!".

OMG, I'm so glad I did!! We only use Cubase to export old projects now.

Yeah mine hasn't had hardly any use in quite some time.
I appreciate it and can see elements of it that I would like to implemented in studio one but I think using it now would be a backwards step

I am a cubase user since 2004 and I haven`t started my cubase 6 since the first day I installed s1.

The biggest reason is that, there are millions of features on cubase which I do not actually need them. So when I use cubase I use maybe %60 of entire program %40 of it not necessary for my music genre. I use %90 of S1 right now with a faster workflow and more creativity.

I believe that a large feature set can exist in a daw, its just that cubase doesn't speed up the flow with its functions. I believe that its not the actual feature that is the problem, its how the user interacts with them. Cubase makes you use more clicks than is necessary

I actually hate cubase.
I stuck with hardware for years.
studio one is easy and simple. like hardware.
cubase is not user friendly that's why pros switch.

S1 version 2 is straight to the point. More stable. Double the workflow. Much more modern feel. Much more 'forward' thinking. Color me a total convert...
I think...therefore I use Studio One...

I recently purchased Studio One 2 and I really enjoy it. There are a ton of features which got me sold right away.
However, the more I work with it, the more I miss a few very essential MIDI features which I hope will be part of the 2.5 update!

No legato function:
meaning, I am not able to qickly close gaps on e.g. a 1 min recorded MIDI pattern. If you want to create a smooth flowing 8th note bass pattern which was manually played in, you have to spend like 10-20 mins to close all the notes by hand. Compared to just pressing one key and solve the whole issue within 2 seconds it is almost a MUST HAVE!

No option to cut a MIDI container/event in the session window:
Imagine to cut out a part of a chorus in the middle and paste it towards to the end. Currently you have to enter EACH container/eventbox and cut the midi files by hand in order to simply split them. I "lose" like 10 mins for something which could be done within 10 seconds.

No option to control advanced velocity:
If you know Cubase, you know how awesomely easy you can rise/lower velocity based on relation to each other, or create fade in/outs keeping the velocity in relation to each other.

If you want to edit a curve in e.g. your CC01 lane, you always have to click somewhere in free space to edit the curve, if you directly hit a point and move around, you just edit this one point! Just a small thing but very mind boggling if doing it almost 10 times in a minute.


As for the audio side ALL THE WAY Studio One! ... however, personally speaking, if the 2.5 update does not deliver at least some of these functions I will head back to Cubase 6.5 and wait until Studio One will be more professional in terms of MIDI work.

I understand that many of you don't have a problem with MIDI and don't miss any of these functions, but once you have worked with these it is like entering your house through the chimney while it is just easier to use the door!

If you are Santa Clause, ignore this message!

yeah the lack of legato is annoying.
Also, limited audio editing functions cause me to go back to cuabse for in depth audio editing.

I just wish S1V2 had more audio edit functions like that found in audio editors and other daws.

But other than audio editing, cubase has now become redundant.

I got Cubase 6.5, Logic Express, Pro Tools and Studio One 2 Pro.
Pro Tools and Logic is only for abillity to convert incoming projects, don´t like them much and don´t use them much, if possible.
The reason for having this is to be able to do and analyze projects and that is easier when you have all facts on the table (Compressors, FX´s what have you) as it was and the one´s actually used to make it happen. If there is a Softsynth not known, its audio only from the client.
I like to use them with my 24.4.2. Project and Firestudio 26/26.
in MIDI Cubase is King so I use that on my own projects/songs. I use a lot of UAD plugins and it´s sad that I can only use the 32bit version of SO2 with them as it makes me choose Cubase 64bit instead for workflow. For recording live its Capture or SO2 on MacBookPro (8 Gb ram) but have tried Cubase too.
Use mostly SO2 for Quick Thinking but need 64bit bridge for my UAD´s as I have 16gb ram for my softsynths on my Windows 7 pro PC and want to use it all together !!
For transports I use Mackie Control Pro , Faderport, Korg nanos or CMC´s just for Cubase on the go and it makes a difference in speed.
Smooth tempo change is also important and would be great if improved a bit or two.
I dont hate or dont need any of these, I just use and if something fits better I use that.
By doing so I learn more and is better on an all-time basis.
Sorry if there is any misspelling

After trying all other DAWs (except Logic), Studio one would be my choice. It's just an amazing tool

I tried several DAW's (Cubase, Sonar, Reaper, blah blah). Then I discover S1, tried it, loved it, totally converted to it.

Now, I'm kinda hooked on it. (you know, kinda like a really great drug).

Haven't loaded any other DAW in over a year, and refuse to pay the upgrade costs for any other DAW but S1 (not that I have had to purchase an upgrade for S1 yet, but I will if and when that time comes).

Studio One has become my DAW of choice period.

I like S1 V2 a lot and have been using it a lot, but Logic Hardware midi synth implementation is the best of all the DAWs. I have found some very cool work-arounds with Logic and S1 together and also have found that the old Sounddiver 3.1.0 will work on a Mac with OS 10.6.8. So Sounddiver is cool with S1 together. Sounddiver is an editor/librarian that was from Emagic which was bought by Apple. Apple has never developed Sounddiver. I can also do all my bank and programme changes from my Edirol PCR 800. I have learned how to set this controller up and enjoy fantastic results. I don't think any other controller is this programable.

My support for Cubase being the "BEST at HARDWARE MIDI"... is because of the ff...

1) Midi device support for all legacy equipment is available on MAC & PC
2) The interface is built into the DAW - its not another external app like SD was - which is no longer supported, btw.
3) Whilst complex the ability to build internal custom interface panels was only attempted by Sonar and Cubase - Cubase panels "look" better - more modern
4) Which other DAW can import program and patches and banks from old hardware synths?
