Most important feature ever. Ver8

Don't do a thing. Take your time. Survey and delve into actual requirements from as many users as possible, especially those that are not voicing their opinion via this particular forum.

(Thousands register and yet the active posts are from the same ole same handful? )

Re: Most important feature ever. Ver8


We want plugins, high-end plugins, authentic modelled compressors on-par with Slate digital, better softsynths that sound exactly like phat hard-hitting analog hardware like the Oberheim OBX and Prophet 5 and Moog.

We want mastering solutions built by Steinberg, all-in-one mastering solutions better than Izotope's Ozone 5, we want better sampled sound quality, we want built-in CD burning (like every other DAW!!) We want more EDM Pop music sounds, phat sampled synth sounds, not from softsynths, samples from REAL hardware!! Select quality synth hoovers, synth stabs, synth hooks, pulsating Trance-pads, and many EDM drumkits with huge PHAT AS HELL CLAPS, clean 'thumping' EDM kick drums, tons of TR909 type Hi-Hats etc etc THIS IS WHAT WE NEED! PLUGINS AND SOUNDS GALORE OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY! It's all about the 'quality'

No "we" do not.

Allow me to be blunt and direct on this point, especially for the newbies.

There are specialist software engineers that do an excellent job of creating wonderful plug-ins - support them. Stop this cheap-skate, everything for a $1 mentality.

On the extreme note - gp7, you come across as a bit of TROLL. :?:

Re: Professional Audio Editing

Most importantly, how familiar are you with audio editing principles in general? Forget about the product for a second.

Re: [POLL] Are you using media bay ?

@iBM... horses for courses.

The Presonus tool is a browser, in the way that you could use windows explorer and libraries.
MB is quite a bit more.
You're not going to appreciate it's power till you start sifting through years of sampling bits and pieces and trying to make sense of key, styles, tempos.. just having a folder marked "rock 3/4 intro" is not going to cut it

Artificial Intelligence Module

Looking at the latest release of GA4, which I believe for some was a disappointment in that it did not take further the Style-Complex-Slider functionality, which previous generations pioneered. Well not at least in direction many expected... the present implementation is kinda clunky. ;)

In fact given that competing products - aka Logic, have improved on the idea of "simplified auto accompaniment" - well as far as drums are concerned, at least.

This begs the question, why not attempt to address the "intelligence" of music making in a separate module (for want of a better description).

We all know of Stephen Kay's KARMA - but I believe the SB developers could put their own slant on this, and even make it very Cubase/Nuendo specific.

An example that comes to mind is the utilising of The Logical Editor, Transformer, and Input Transformer in ways that truly enter the realm of "creative effect" as opposed to the more utilitarian current implementation.

A simple musical concept like "swing" or "groove" is often in the real world explicitly linked to a personality... swing at 5% just doesn't mean anything... but swing like Steve Gadd..has a whole different connotation. The drummer would play certain bars different, even when still in the same chorus or verse... we all know it's these subtleties that set apart real musician feel from programmed parts.

I know that this undertaking, if even remotely considered, would be HUGE challenge to do right. However, I do believe that whichever DAW creator pushes this envelope will be leading the way for others to follow... and let's face it, in the history of the DAW - Steinberg has always led rather than followed...

Mr Kaz Kobayashi if you're reading this... :idea:

Re: Orchestral Sample Libraries

Hi there,

An obvious choice is http://www.steinberg.net/en/landing_pages/halion_symphonic_orchestra_vst_sound_instrument_set_kaufen

for one simple reason, the integration between scoring and sample triggering is really good. I use VSL, Kontak and HS - but for ease of scoring, tools like VST expression help at creating realistic passages.
