Cubase kills your love of music
Ah, so it's not Andrew Lloyd Weber after all...
So, Radiohead bassist Colin Greenwood doesn't much like Cubase. He's not alone, finding an ally in Ben Parrish:
Ok i may not be quite as far into music biz as that guy from radiohead, but he sure has got a point - but it's been widely noted in music mags for years that logic has the edge over cubase, in more areas than just stability...
I was forced into using cubase for about 6 months when i worked in a very small little recording studio, and at university before then i had to try and fix no end of problems with cubase on other student's pcs. I'm telling you: cubase kills your love of writing music.
I now work in a lowly computer helpdesk position, but at least it's better than restarting every 5 minutes because cubase has just crashed and steinberg tech support just tell you that it's a problem with win98, no matter how much you try and explain that not even windows crashes that much.
Danny Styles, on the other hand reckon's Colin's full of it. And so is his band:
he is referring to the akai s3200xl and also radiohead are full of shit. i can hear several VSTi's on their album. and VST don't crash if you have a proper version with a decent computer. Try an apple mac g4 with 2 x 450mhz processors and a minimum of 512mb ram. mine never crashes. radiohead are just artgeek wannabes with no skillz. yeah yeah they can play the guitar and plenty of people bought into the hype, but they are crap none the less.
Sigh. Whatever happened to the days when the most polemical discussion point would be whether you favoured Gibson or Fender?
