So here\'s my dilemma...I need to upgrade Cubase 5.1 to the latest greatest sequencer for scoring to video. I don\'t have a Mac and I don\'t want a Mac unless its the Big kind from McDonald\'s, so please leave the Logic and DP laudations at the door, and remember to tip the coat check girl on your way out...she\'s studying to be a proctologist and could certainly use the money.
The contenders are obviously Sonar 3 or SX 2. I digitize video onto my hard drive and compose to those from within the sequencer, so ease of use with this in mind is of primary importance. I\'ve grown accustom to using the Hitpoints feature in 5.1 to mark cue hits and scene/tempo changes, so I\'m looking for something with a similar setup.
I\'m partial to Cubase but, and this is a major king-kong sized butt, the monkey brains at Steinberg killed the ability to place Hitpoints in SX 1.0. That was a huge deal breaker for me so I never upgraded to it. Has this, or something similar to it, been restored in SX 2.0? How does Sonar 3 handle markers/hitpoints and funky-tempo related manipulation and hitpoint placement that\'s so crucial for scoring to video?
Comments? Suggestions? Naked pictures of supermodels? I\'m open to any of the above...thanks!
