    What are you looking to do? I'm sure Cubase will out put AIFF or WAV. files. Just bounce all your files individually and burn them to CD. Take the files to the Portools studio, and mix away.

    what exactly do you expect to gain by using ProTools LE? There is not really anything else there if you compare to a modern version of Cubase. Yes, the keystrokes are different and some other things are different. But will PT LE make your songs into instant platinum sellers? (I guess we both know that the answer to that is no).

    So what are your urgent needs making you want to go from a perfectly good platform to something else?

    I think you already got a satisfactory answer over here.

    I love cubase and i been with it for awhile... the only reason i would begin to use pro tools is because every major studio and artist uses it........ if i did a project on cubase could i take it to a protools based studio and get a good master?? Do u suggest i stay wit cubase and try and transfer files to protools when i need to??? I have no complaints wit the cubase and firewire rig.

    Do you really need to go to a studio that has Pro Tools?! There are studios out there that use Nuendo or Cubase...

    Call around and ask...

    In the long run it's really easy..
    Reset the mixer so that all faders are at 0 or default position. Clear all fx and inserts and whatnot....

    Select all tracks, CTRL+A....then under audio select bounce tracks...instant stems that you can bring to any studio to mix....

    Or if all you are looking for is someone to mix then enlist the services of a mix engineer that you can send the sessions to. That's what most of my clients do. I have an FTP server in which clients upload their sessions to and I take it from there and send them back a mixed project!

    Opus :D

    My personal preference is the Mbox with Pro Tools LE but its all about the sound you want and how good you are with the program, If cubase is doing what you want to get done and you are satisfied with the sound then stick with it! As far as sounding professional, you can do this with any of the recording programs if you have knowledge of gain staging, eqing and all the essential skills of recording. Pro Tools is used on most professional recordings though but if you have the skills, you will be able to make anything sound professional no matter what program you use.
