Haha, Warren, it's certainly more advanced now and Version 9 Pro is on the horizon. I remember the 1993 Atari ST versions well!!! I've recently gone more from Cubase to Studio One but I still love certain things in Cubase like chord arranger, Vari-audio and incredible elastic audio. A great production / writing tool. Midi capabilities are top notch too. It will be interesting to see what new features are in the new version. With Studio One and Cubase, everything is covered.
