Re: THANK YOU STEINBERG!! Cubase 7 and Cubase 7.5 are amazin

Lets face it Cubase has to be more than an alternative to Pro Tools.
For me the fact that is more than just a studio recording software is it's strength. I am a guitarist but love playing about with sounds and going places I have never been before. Steinberg has always been a DAW that encourages us to think outside the box. (I have been using Loopmash to re-sample my playing.) I guess that is why there are so many bugs, because they want to be so many things to so many users. I for one love that. I certainly am glad that I am am not stuck in a studio with bands rehashing all the old clichés - I would rather rehash my own and perhaps add a few unexpected things on the way.

I am not knocking those of you who run studios. Far from it, I think you do wonderful stuff and provide a really valuable service. Not to mention living a financially precarious life. However I baulk at the use that many people make of the word professional, as if it is a passport to some higher plane of knowledge and creativity. What is a DAW professional? I mean anyone can claim whatever they like on a forum and nobody would be any the wiser. After all did I not just claim to be guitarist.

The value of Cubase to me is not it's perfection, because it quite plainly isn't. It is its versatility and the possibilities that it offers its users. I may not be the best musician, but I have the best fun. Sure I get cross with Steinberg at times and irritated with Cubase. I am sure we could say the same about our partners, as they could about us. However, we still love them in spite of all that. That is the value of a long term relationship.

Re: Producers around the world

If you want to get a job DONE audio file handling is fine. However, if you just want to play around with the audio files all day trying to polish toids then Cubase is maybe not for you.
The end game is MUSIC. Nobody notices or cares about how clever the processing is. So the drummer can play the four types of paradiddle? So you've corrected his timing to the nth degree and the singers tuning from horse's ass to angels? The listener rarely notices.
I don't think it bothers the majority of users.

Re: 7.5.20 Impressions...

Just about all the little features in C7 -> C7.5.20 is exactly what I like when I see it. People are different. Right now I'm very happy with the directions Cubase is heading in!!! 8-) 8-) 8-)

Re: 7.5.20 Impressions...

Imperial Theme? yes, it looks great.
It´s ONLY the mixer (!) - incl. stupid tiny buttons!!, not scalable, problems with small flat screens, e.g. :roll:
Reaper´s menu´s, plugin windows, preferences, etc. etc. looks like Office Windows 95 GUI style (!)
very ugly. Sorry.

Re: Cubase 8 Pro was not ready for public release

Simple question.

If C8 could have used "3 to 6 more months in the oven" to be ready (in whoever's opinion), why didn't you just wait 3 to 6 months to get it?

Just use what you had for a while and get C8 later. If you think it's "always a beta", just let others "beta test" it and tippy toe in later. Impotent ranting is really not going to fix anything. It's just not.

Sorry for those having major issues. Happy for those (which is most) who are not!

Use what works. Get stuff done.

Re: Cubase 8 Pro was not ready for public release

It doesn't irritate me what-so-ever, not sure how you got that impression.

Let me help you there:

Be assured that our opinion on the quality of this release will not be adjusted by the fact that it works fine for you

Sounds pretty irritated to me.

So to be clear. A thread is started boldly stating (not questioning) that C8 was not ready for public release. Some loudly agree. However, when it is pointed out that many are getting on with it fine - yes, very much including those of us who use it for a living - this is of no relevance whatsoever. Indeed, we are to "be assured" of its irrelvance. Ditto when you compare with competitors at 10x the price yet far worse performance, this is also brushed aside as irrelevant.

It's the definitive point at which this thread demonstrates it has no value. Regardless of what facts and opinions are considered, it will not matter. Some folks here want a jolly good rant, and they're going to have it, inconvenient facts be dammned, and shame on us for spoiling that particular ranty party. As for the idea that now the thread should about turn and become more cerebral and analytical - perhaps starting with a less infantile subject header might be a thought.

I would love nothing more than to spend 2 hours going through everything else point by point (as we all know there's nothing more intellectually stimulating that reading forum arguments that spiral into ever decreasing circles of petulance after all), but I really must be off to earn that living.

Re: Cubase 8 Pro was not ready for public release

All my Slate plugins VCC, VBC, VTM and SSD4 and rock solid as VST 2.4 and VST 3 in CP8.0 and now CP8.05.

I should mention I'm running CP8 as a 64bit app and my Slate plugins are all 64bit.

Re: 8.0.5 Still no minimize button?

Not pointing at any individual or user, but I would like to propose some questions and give my opinion:

I just wonder what benefit comes from referring to Cubase programmers as possibly being monkeys or stoners or whatever. Think that is going to help the progress of the product or enhance your quality of support for the software?

How many complex computer programs have the ones who say things like this created themselves? Obviously none.

Yeah, I understand that there are bugs and not every users workflow is addressed. But realize, you are probably the same people who complain about waiting on the runway while an commercial airliner is about to propel you through the sky and get you to another location way quicker than if you walked there.

Appreciate that nothing is perfect. Even if it were, the task of making such complex software work perfect on hardware that has so many variations, has got to be almost impossible.

That being said, this is obviously not the same as flying. Recording software does not involve risk of death. But then a true professional would not upgrade to a new version without proper testing. So...

Re: 8.0.10 is here

its so easy to please Cubase users! Here's how its done...101 style.

1:/ remove basic function thats been present since Cubase 1.0 [eg Metronome]
2:/ update Cubase and re-instate basic function thats been present since Cubase 1.0 [Metronome]
3:/ experience happy customers bouncing around everywhere throwing praise and joy for the brilliant programmers at Steinberg for re-instating basic function thats been present since Cubase 1.0 [Metronome] ! yay for Steinberg and Cubase they are so cool ! Metronome works!

is this right? or am i missing something?

4:/ getting rid of idiots & trolls that show little respect for the marvels of the worlds most advanced DAW would get me jumping up and down for joy.

5: Getting rid of fanboys who think a BASIC metronome is not an important function in a DAW thats so advanced and marvelous would make me smile as well :oops: :shock: A correctly working metronome would show respect for the customer :roll:

Never been called a Fanboy before, always thought that was a slur reserved for the Apple guys. I must admit that it took me about two minutes to set up a work around so I never got my panties in a knot like some of the princesses on here. Now the problem is fixed but the princesses still remain. Anyway back to the star of the show, C8 Pro, woo hoo! :roll: :arrow: :(
