    If you don;t know maybe you should stick with the entry level program
    wich Cubasis is.
    Once you have mastered and outgrown its features then grow up to the
    elder superior but more complicated Cubase.

  4. Hi there,

    Cubase VST does not come with "Easy Guitar" and I do not believe that
    Cubase SX does either, so in some ways that would be a step backwards. Of
    course, there are a number Virtual Guitar instruments available (Steinberg
    V-Guitar, Slayer to name two) but these would cost you extra on top of
    Cubase itself.

    You can certainly load more than 4 VSTi in Cubase VST and I believe that
    the limit is quite high in SX.

    What is the actual problem with using two "Easy Guitar" simultaneously?
    Generally the "export audio" is not such a bad thing and frees up processing
    power (at the cost of hard-disk space and disk performance). Does the second
    guitar simply not sound, or is it something else?

    As far as score goes, this is not something I use so much. With VST,
    there are three different versions and the two more expensive ones have
    improved scoring options. Not sure exactly how it works with SX so maybe
    someone esle can fill you in there.

    One of the things that Cubase 5.xx has is a drum track editor.

    It's a grid style step entry input editor.

    As Niall mentions, there is no "easy Guitar".

    > Good point!


    yeah, keep on cubasis a bit longer, and try and do more and more challanging
    things.
    it's how i learnt, and it really lets you know what you need. use cubasis to
    it's limits then think about going farther.

    i hate seeing people come from nothing and jump staight in to cubase too
    soon, getting bogged down and giving up on the whole idea of music
    production... :(

    I use Cubasis as well as Cubase Artist 7.5.4. I mainly use Cubasis when I'm away from home. My Cubase runs on a tower computer. I think it all depends on your needs. I bought Cubase because I found that Cubasis just couldn't do all that I needed. Mind you I'm also using a 16 channel mixer as my input interface and for mixdown. With Cubasis I found that I was spending far too much time connecting and unconnecting cables. With my bigger system it's much more plug and play. I play keyboards, guitar and bass and pretend to sing!
    Cubasis is very powerful though.
    The one thing I found is that if you are going to use Cubase, you have to be careful not to get caught up with getting all kinds of VST plugins. It's very easy to get hooked!
    With Cubasis, I just plug my iRig into my iPad, plug in my guitar, call up an amp sim and go.
    I know it's tough to decide but if you are comfortable with Cubasis, I'd stay stick with it.
    Best of luck!
