I have been using Cubase since I began using a DAW six years ago. I made the decision based on the recent purchase of Steinberg by Yamaha thinking that the combination of these two companies had to be a winner, it was. If you own Cubase you have to get this control. I have both a euphonic MC control and MC mix and dollar for dollar there is no comparison. This simple unit has advanced my workflow in ways that I could only dream of in the past, less mousing around and more intuitive decisions for sure. I am able to make micro adjustments on any parameter I choose because of the fine detail that the 8 knobs provide and changing controllers is a snap using the learn function or direct assignment in the Cubase Quick Control tab. The eight user assignable function keys are also a game changer in keeping my workflow on track no matter what I am focosing on at the time. This unit is Great.
