And not only these. Automation is so amputated in PT. Only Pt HD has full automation features.
Totally true. But when you buy Pro Tools HD you get all of the most current Pro Tools features plus the added features of HD, whereas Nuendo has some more advanced features over Cubase, but is not up to the level of the most recent Cubase features and improvements in other ways. Cubase doesn't have some of the more advanced automation features of Nuendo, as one example, but Nuendo does not have many of the more advanced/current music and GUI/workflow features of Cubase. This is what needs to change in order to make paying more for Nuendo make sense to many of us.
The single most enormous difference for me is re. ProTools HD horsepower and making full use of cores, threads and CPU power. This is simply light years away from what the Cubase or Nuendo engines can currently provide. IMO, this is exactly where Steinberg need to very much improve and catch up with DAWs like Logic, ProTools, Studio One etc. Especially ProTools HD horsepower (mix-down, plugs, overheads).
Personally, I'd much rather work in Steinberg DAWs for the overall far more thoughtful UI & VST /MIDI composition in particular. However, the lack of horsepower for is a real drag - yes, one can bounce, render, reduce cpu load etc but all of which takes far too much time and fiddling in my view. PTHD can do much of this real time & while maintaining low latency buffers on a native system. Consequently, I often end up with exported to PTHD. Try take it to 96k on Cubendo & is even more ridiculous. I notice two of the recent Steinberg surveys continue to raise this point about the audio engine; about time they got on with it to do a major re-write.
