Hi Im due for a musical application software upgrade and Im not sure which package will work best Cubase 4, 5 Or even ABleton 8. Im currently using Cubase SX3 which works quite well for me ,apart from one problem I keep getting - when I play my midi keyboard into a track and record, every note records slightly behind what it should, its not a quantize issue and my latency is spot on. y I get around this by going into fine edit, block mark the part ive just recorded and drag it back to where it should be (aprox a 16th behing where cubase puts it ) . Ive had this problems for a while and I cant seem to fix it, no matter what hardware I use, even with the Virus TI2.
Anyway Im testing a version of ableton 8 live and it seems a bit daunting to use with a virus ti . It seems very complicated setting all the midi tracks up and Ive still not got it working properly, Ive only managed to get up to 4 channels at the most working altogether.
Ive not used cubase 4 or 5 yet, so im looking for some other opinions. Will they iron out the problem Ive got above or is sx3 suitable and am i doing something wrong.
With ableton live - it must be good when its set ok as so many people use it, but then again its more complicated to mix your track down, you have to insert an audio track and bounce all your tracks onto it as the other mixdown options dont work using a TI.
