Customer Reviews
4.5 out of 5 (127 ratings) Rate and Review This Product
zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "It's tight dawg"
Sound: Same as any, you only get garbage out if you put garbage in. Dig? Feature: More effects in the package would be nice. The compressor rocks, reverb and delay are so so i say. Haven't used all effects yet (Cruncher, ect.). Quality: I've used Sonar, ProTools, Cool Edit, N'tracks Studio, ect. This is just as good as any. 24 bit recording for under $100,..... come on!! Value: Can't beat it for real. No N-tracks or Cakewalk product can compare for real VST's, Rewire (reason), Its worth $200 at least. This and a Audiophile 2496(99.00), and a Behringer mixer and you got a 48 track Studio for around 250.00. Manufacturer Support: never needed them so i don't know. But they have been conntacting me (specials, offers) so that's a plus. The Wow Factor: Interface not as sexy as SX or SL but still pretty good. Overall: Does everything you basically need it to do. 48 audio tracks unlimitec midi no crashes in 6 months.
Style of Music: Hip Hop, Soul, Gospel

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Great work Steinberg!!! Pro-style for low money!!!"
Sound: Man this is the best product on the market for the money. Screw Pro-tools or Sonar. If you are an amateur or novice producer, artist, or engineer, this program will make your work sound like it was mastered by the best. I was a nobody rap artist trying to step my game up. ha i was using Nero's Soundraxx as my sequencer. So i bought Cubase SE cause it was cheap and i needed something a lil more professional. Its the best move i could have ever made. I started a record label, get consistant airplay and have become known locally. I recommend this program to anyone with a low budget, but need big quality sound Feature: Unlimited!!! i have about 100 different plug-ins from numerous different companies and Cubase enables all of them to function efficiently and fast within the program. the VST that come with it do alot of magic cause they are indeed high quality with great panoramic quality. Sequncing is relatively easy and fun since most of the shifting and editing can be done with a few clicks of the mouse and dragging Ease of Use: it becomes pretty easy once you play with it for a few days. You learn the basics and all the things you need to get a good sound after a few days. Im still learning features as i go and i have had it for about 4 months. So i guess it would be clockwork for someone who has already used a program similar like Sonar Quality: pretty good. no problems with it yet....yet Value: its worth 4x its selling price Manufacturer Support: This is the only part where the program suffers. With it being an early outdated version, it lacks a few plug-ins and a very very important feature of rendering unlimited mp3s. It limits you to only produce 20 and says that you have to get the mp3-update from steinberg to make more. The problem is that steinberg doesnt make the update anymore so you must find a conversion program if you want mp3s of your works The Wow Factor: looks really nice and professional, complicating to the in-experienced but looks like ice cream to the knowledgeable Overall: I will eventually upgrade when i can get another $800 dollars to do so or when the price drops drastically. it does get the job done as far as quality. The only think i think Cubase 4 would have on it is that it may have more features and plug-ins

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
