Older man, new college student - Cubase or Nuendo

Post by dcasanares »

Hello everyone,

I'm re-entering college at 55 and will be taking a home recording class and wanted to know if I should purchase the Academic version of Cubase or Nuendo?

I want to record musicians and I'm a technical guy by trade and I know enough to be dangerous - former live sound guy back when analog was king and Michael Jackson had an afro.

Cubase would do the trick, but the price difference might be low enough to make it worthwhile to buy Nuendo.

Nuendo will have a higher cost in the long run and is NOT needed for what you are going to do, Cubase is fine

Cubase will treat you right for sure. Gratz on going back to school. I went back to school again recently too. The other students were all young enough to by my kids. :o

For audio and/or midi work, I would start with Cubase. If you need to do more involved audio editing, then I'd also get Wavelab. The Cubase/Wavelab combo covers a lot of ground and is a pleasure to use.

If you were doing a lot of video with audio, then consider Nuendo. Otherwise, Cubase is probably the better fit.

It inspires me that at that age you decided to go to college again! As for a future student, I recommend you read this essay writing service review. This will help you speed up writing your homework.

I recommend Cubase because it is cheaper and easier to learn.

It seems to me that the older the student, the more difficult it is to study, because with age learning skills are lost and the curriculum at the university has become more difficult. I take the example of my father, he at 45 decided to get an education as a financier and constantly turns to me for help with homework. I advised him write my assignment. But I still can’t understand why my father decided to become a financier so late if he worked as a builder all his life. But this is the dream of his life. I respect it!
