Okay... Point taken, but in saying that, I suppose that updates for Mac do come out less often but only because they are less vulnerable than Windows. Can I also add in that OSX Operating System Updates cost about 10 times less than Windows OS's.
You are welcome. Maybe try Ableton or Logic.... AT LEAST!
To each, their own favorite. You asked for others setup, but shouldn't bash about them. Troll!!!!!
I own both of those and while I dislike both cubase and reaper, I think there are very valid reasons to choose them. I'd start over learning with Cubase before I'd muck around with Live again.
My essential list that i use for nearly every track:
+ Ableton Suite VST's (Auto Filters, Redux, Spectrum, Multiband Dynamics, Compressor etc.)
