Cubase is the way to go. And Cubase 5 comes with so many more great features that's it's an amazing deal. My recommendation is to get the full version (not the studio). The only problem I had was that Cubase's "VST Bridge" ("bridges" 32-bit and 64-bit) can be extremely unstable. On the bright side, many Cubase users have been using Jbridge to fix this.
I was not a big fan of Cubase 4. There are definitely things that I liked about it, but I had problems with stability on my system. Not a problem with 5. Cubase takes an interesting approach to setting up tracks and routing. It has really been thought out well.
This software is great for the DAW experienced. I would not recommend this for the novice. I like this software but I have to wonder if Cuckos Reaper would have been a better way to go. The main reason I chose this software was because I have used Steinberg software since 1998. The learning curves is less steep for those that have used other Steinberg software. That being said if you are a novice, the price is pretty steep for the software. For those that have used Steinberg software before; you will find much of this software familiar.
