Despite those who are not having issues (and I'm sure there are plenty, just like there are plenty who are), I agree that CPro8 was not ready for public release. As I've said before: new releases always have bugs, but CPro8 really ups the ante with more problems than I've ever had on any DAW on any computer. I'm glad some people are not having issues, but even aside from the "issues", there are so many new and old basic design flaws that have been mentioned over and over again for years and still haven't been fixed. Loading up multiple projects using large amounts of RAM?
I love Cubase and really want to keep using it, but for the first time I am considering something else, not fully because of features but because I want to at least support a company that cares for its users and doesn't release obviously half-baked releases like CPro8. I never had any of the major problems I'm having with any previous version of Cubase, on a variety of computers (7.5 runs great on the same computer, by the way).
Do I sound bitter? Yeah, I'm bitter! CPro8 was promising on some new levels, and now I won't even use it until it's up to par with the stability, etc., of 7.5 (which had many faults, too, few of which have been remedied). This is not how to keep a loyal customer base, in my line of work.
Bitter. And done. :(
