    Protools Or Cubase

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I AM BUILDING MY FIRST STUDIO SETUP, WHATS BETTER, PRO TOOLS OR CUBASE? I AM MORE FAMILIAR WITH MICROSOFT THAN APPLE BUT CAN ADAPT. ALSO FROM MY UNDERSTANDING THERE ARE ALOT OF PRICES FOR ALOT OF DIFFERENT VARIATIONS OF THESE PROGRAMS, WHICH "MODEL," FOR LACK OF A BETTER WORD WILL BE SUFFICIENT ENOUGH TO GIVE ME FREE REIGN CREATIVELY WITHOUT BREAKING MY POCKETS?

    ALL INFORMATIVE COMMENTS WELCOME AND APPRECIATED

    PEACE

    Welcome to FP

    what kind of music do you want to make?
    do you plan on recording vocals or instruments, if so then what?
    how much money do you have to spend on this?
    what equipment do you already own?
    what other equipment do you plan to buy?
    why have you singled out just Cubase & Pro Tools?
    do you plan on using synths or softsynths?
    do you have a preference for software or hardware?
    do you plan to play live or is this all to remain in a studio?

    Really no easy question. Do you have any hardware, even a soundcard? Protools comes with its own hardware, but it's expensive. Mbox would be quite a cheap choise, but really limited. Dígi001 and Digi002 are better packages, but for a first studio, I think a bit too much. I'd go for Cubase SL and some good soundcard, maybe M-audio or something. If you're doing much midistuff, and using softsynths, then cubase really beats PT. Protools is great in bigger recording studios, and I like it for audio recording & editing. But the midi-side in it really sucks.

    Your question is not very informative, nothing about other gear you're getting and nothing about your music style. But I'd choose Cubase over PT anytime for home studio enviroment. Personally I use Cubase SX home and Protools HD system in a bigger studio, and both suit very well to those situations.

    Also check out some cheaper and easier-to-use programs like Fruityloops and Reason, those are fine for beats and techno. If you need audio, check out eg. Acid and CoolEdit. Even Cubase might be too much for you...

    Just don't buy into the "Pro Tools" is industry standard ****. The only reason that so many people use Pro Tools is the hardware, not the software. And I'm not talking about Mboxes, Digi 001's or 002's. I'm talking about the "HD" stuff. And that would be a lot of money for a beginer studio to start out on. Unless you really know what your doing and have the clientel to support it. If your already using a pc and don't wanna go for a Mac, then just try out the demos of the stuff that's out there. Like Cubase, Sonar, Abelton Live, ect. Just don't buy something because people tell you it's industry standard. Cause to be real about it, your not even in the industry, so **** a standard. Worry about that **** when you've perfected your craft and get a break. So, my advice would be to try out the demos first. Also, you might want to try to find a store that already has the stuff set up on different computers, and see if they'll show you some things about each one.
