My mindset is "oh what a great deal on Cubase". I'm trying to say no as I don't need another DAW. I've had a license of Reaper ever since it came out. Some advantages are budget friendly. I don't have to pay until Reaper 6 comes out. I've had it installed on every machine I have, even a laptop that doesn't even have modern cell phone specs. It's constantly evolving and doesn't eat disk space. There's far more learning resources now. I'm trying to persuade myself from spending $155 on Cuabse and invest more in learning Reaper. Cubase also charges for a .5 update. Not a fan of that. Plus Cubase will basically stay on one machine. Buying a new DAW usually takes away from spending on toys that works in other DAWs.
