can you give me some advice, please? I am using cubase vst 32 5.0 with gigastudio, but there are some problems espetially with the \"volume control\" (to create cresendi) wich is difficult to manipulate. Is Cubase sx better? Maybe there are better programs than cubase? What about Calkwalk?

I was also a VST 5.1 user and I upgraded to Cubase SX a few months ago.
Well I don\'t even think of looking back.
There are for sure some shortcomings and some missing features from 5.1, especially on the midi front. But overall it\'s a fantastic program in my opinion.
Actually the new automation, although not perfect in some respect, has just changed my life: you can do everything graphically, each track has it\'s own automation track. Furthermore you have a choice of graphic tools like lines, paraboles, squares, etc. enabling you to quickly draw automation curves.
As I\'m doing more and more scoring for orchestras in my arrangements it just brings a whole new world of realistic performances (essentially thanks to volume automation).
The major shortcoming is that you cannot tie currently automation points to parts (which means moving a part doesn\'t move its automation automatically: you have to do it manually, which is easy but a little bit time consuming).
There\'s a nice and friendly little forum dedicated to Cubase SX and Nuendo here:
thank you for answering. did I understand you well that with cudase sx you can create cresendi and decrescendi graphically? this was kind of complicated in the cudase 5.0 version... if it is so I should get cubase sx...
