    Made the switch in 2015 and haven't looked back. Just way more stable, and geared toward electronic and warping.
    Out of curiosity, what stability issues were you having with Cubase? I've thrown a ton of crap at every version and never had any issues.

    I had a lot of sudden crashes, and also issues with vst:s "decoupling" themselves (not sounding out the way they should even though everything was configured fine) on occasion which could only be solved by restarting. I also had issues with mixer options not loading correctly if I had saved the project before a crash.

    I own the full version (Cubase 8, at the time I made the switch) so it's not a pirating issue. Super powerful DAW and I love a lot of the plugins (Padshop, Prolouge, great saturators and channel strip as well). But in 2015 I started performing live with a band and quickly realised I could no longer rely on Cubase for that purpose.

    EDIT:
    I use a Mac, so it might be related to the operating system.

    Damn. Ive never used on MAC, but have been using Cubase since I was in High School. That's why I was curious.

    Yeah, high school was how I got into it as well. I did have less problems with it back when I was running PC however.

    I think the instability might in part be due to the plugins I run. Loads and loads of instances of 3rd party synths and plugins (a lot of NI), which can sometimes even make Ableton crash. So it might also be related to my method of working. Whenever I play live using a DAW I try to slim the channels down as much as possible in order to avoid such issues.
