What is the use and advantage? I must be dyslexic, because everyone seems to say that Ableton is user friendly. In X it has been switched to 'ctl-m'.
The times we have used other things, had all sorts if issues with converters. Cubase : expression maps, no limited numbers of tracks. Tuchanka was basically a worthless chunk of rock, with a depleted population of krogans. It's just a personal taste question. Consistently updated and amazing support.

As far as the literature say's all Cubase versions work the same with layout and basic functions, you just get more stuff as the price goes up the same as Sonar. Pro Tools is a charm when it comes to portability.
