Do a search on the net and you'll be amazed with the number of similar complaints. It has affected my workflow so much that I now use Reaper and Studio 1.
Download the trial and test it before commiting to buy it.
I used to carry a torch for Cubase and to some extent I still do. But yes over time and certainly with C10, it knocks lumps out of the cpu. I like it, there are improvements but you forfeit speed. I used to be able to work at 32 samples, now my pc wheezes at 64 samples and being realistic I need to work at 128. I took c5 and c6 off my pc but never got around to taking c8.5 I only took c5/6 off to force me to at least use 8.5 thinking why buy 10 and keep using c5/6. I downloaded and installed Bandlab Cakewalk and am trying to move over to that, though it’s a slow journey, I have invested so much time and effort with cubase with custom setups, hardware controllers, sample library setups, macros etc
I appreciate Steinberg in common with other developers have to come up with more and more features, but in essence, re-inventing the wheel doesn’t seem to make it rounder, just bigger so it needs more grunt to make it go round
