I'm not sure what the retail version of Cubase SX 2.0 is, but I recently
upgraded from 1.0.6 and I have to say, I've been extremely happy with
it.  I haven't used Logic in a few years, but for me personally, I think
Cubase has a much better workflow than Logic did way back when.  I want
lots of other Macheads to clue into Cubase SX because I hope Steinberg
stays committed to the OSX platform for a long time to come. :)

So my question is, if GB comes with a bunch of software instruments and
such, can it be used with Cubase, i.e. through rewire or some such?  I'm
guessing GB isn't using VST :) so would there be some other way to use
those instruments in a program like Cubase?  For $49 it would be almost
a no-brainer for a couple of extra patches and some (easier) looping
facilities if it were easily integrated, max 16/44.1 notwithstanding.
