I am a rookie producer/engineer who uses Cubase. I usually am hired for lower budget recording projects where I will do all the engineering, editing, mixing and sometimes mastering, and playing guitars and bass. I have been recording as a hobby for about 4 years, but only as a job for a little over a year. I do part time university/part time recording for most of the year, and full time recording in the summer. I recently had the fortune of making friends with a high profile music producer (let's call him Chris) who lives/works within walking distance of my house/studio. He has won a fistful of awards for his engineering and producing and his award winning studio is very sought after in the Canadian music scene. He has done very well for himself financially. The other night he invited me to check out his studio, and we really connected and ended up talking until almost 1am. He outsources some of his editing work to another guy in town, but it sounds like this other guy has a full time job and is moving away from recording or something like that. Every time I talk to Chris he mentions that he is looking for someone to do editing for him once in a while. I keep telling him that I am interested, but the problem is that I use Cubase, and he, of course, uses protools. He doesn't have anything against Cubase, but I can tell that he is hesitant about hiring me for editing when I am using a different DAW. Do you guys think that editing in cubase for a protools user would be a problem? How hard is it and how long does it take to transfer projects from Protools to Cubase and back again? I am even considering just buying a copy of protools 10 (educational for $300) and learning it just so I can work with Chris, because I think this could be a real break-in opportunity. Do you guys think it's worth it?
