Alloha guys,

Sad but for the first time I am starting to think;
what if they release it and it still has probs?

What then? C6.5.6?

Or is that what they call C7? :) :) :)

Reading the reviews of the C7.0.5 update, it seems that things are still needing some work. Really sorry to hear this, Steinberg, and I can't imagine the next step in that process. To me, its all about the mixer and C6.5 has something that I enjoy working with, hence my urging(s) for a/the last C6.5 update.

BUT HERE'S AN IDEA. :?: If the C6.5.5 update is ready to go, and Variaudio is fixed as promised - along with a few other improvements that others have noted - then charge me for the download. Is it worth $50 to you, Steinberg? Sure, I will pay $50 for this. Anybody else? Of course it would be available to C7 users without any additional payment.

My concern at this point is that C6.5.5 IS ready, but the marketing of C7 is stalling it's release.

So heres a compromise that I can get behind, please consider it.

No as well.

I do not want it that badly.

How about if they paid us $$$ to take it off their hands?
just joking of course

If they added that "pop up" EQ curve with the real time spectrum overlayed on it to the mixer in C6.5 (like the C7 MixConsole but don't change anything else...),
like this...
http://www.steinberg.net/forum/download/file.php?id=5915
the Voxengo Curve EQ, and the chord track to C6.5, I would pay $50 for an upgrade.
...Oh, what the heck, throw in the little track pictures too, will ya!

In fact, I wouldn't really even mind paying the full upgrade price if I could just keep the C6.5 mixer and get the EQ pop up. I don't really care about ANYTHING else about the Mix Console. After all, there are some other good features in C7 like VariAudio 2 and the integrated Sound Loudness Meter (no need to open the plug-in separately).
I would still like to see mp3 tags saved with each project and some sort of a "batch" freeze function.

I refuse to pay a second time to fix things that were broken by SB themselves.

Supplying a non-working product and then requesting extra money to make it work as advertised is questionable business practice.

I already paid good money for version 6.00 and then grudgingly had to pay $50 extra for 6.50 just to get bugs fixed that were introduced by SB themselves in 6.00. I refuse to do that again!

If I buy a new TV that is faulty right out of the box, I don't expect to have to pay extra to have the faults fixed. But that's what I've effectively now done with cubase. Now, if the TV repair man that I hire then ruins my carpet while fixing the TV, who should pay for the carpet? Me again? What a joke!

They broke the *knuf* software, they should fix the *knuf* software!

<end of rant> :D

As mentioned, the current issues in 6.5 don't really affect me, so I wouldn't pay for bugfixes.
Steinberg never charged for bugfixes though, so I don't see them do it now.

Is it not possible to drag Curve VST into 6.5 or have they hardwired it into 7?

Just to be clear, I am not talking about paying for bug fixes either. Just talking about paying for some of the features of C7 while keeping the C6.5 basic look.
I agree that bug fixes should never be paid for. Of course, there are some things that aren't really bugs but more like unpopular design changes. The best example of this is when the comping and lanes changed in one of the early C6 versions and then the new comping tool came out on the paid update to C6.5.

Anyone around long enough to remember SX3's promised last update?

SX3, C4, C5, C6, C6.5 left broken, for those haven't been around long enough to remember.

If they reverted, they could call it "Cubase Classic" 8-)

Maybe "soon" is actually a German word, which means "far off in the distant future" (?)

Oh I never tried.
I knew it would be too easy for them to let us do that. 8-)
