So, due to the lack of compatibility with Superior Drummer in Cubase LE (that version), amidst some other issues, I have decided to learn how to use Reaper too.

Question is, I'm eventually going to have to either upgrade to a better version of Cubase, or register Reaper. I understand one is much cheaper than the other, but it seems like a lot of people are quite fond of Reaper these days. What should I know about the two programs that can help me decide which one is right for me? Also, feel free to share any reasons why you have a certain preference with one over the other.


P.S: For reference, I don't think I'd be looking into the full version of Cubase, but probably the Studio version (the next level down), or the one below that. I like using Cubase, but have come to realize the LE version won't cut it for what I want to do.

reaper blows for editing, but its routing is a **** ton more easier and unique then cubases routing and track system where its more based on old school ways of recording.
