How many Sequel 3 users out there?

Postby rkabz54 » Mon Oct 14, 2013 5:49 am

Please respond to this post so that we can get an idea of how many Sequel users there are out there. I think it would be a good thing so that we show Steinberg we would like regular updates of the program and features.......... ;)

If you don't make a noise nothing happens.

Perhaps we can start a centralized 'wish list'.

Items I would like to see:

1. 64 bit version.
2. Drop Media Bay down into the Multi Zone when active. After all when choosing loops etc, you are wanting to see where in the Arrange Zone they are going. On a small display things get very cramped when Media Bay is being used and pops up in the Arrange Zone. Unless you have a full HD monitor you lose half of the Arrange Zone to Media Bay.
3. Fix the bugs people have been reporting on this forum.


No doubt I'll add more as I use Sequel more..........

No takers? I thought there would be hundreds at least. Maybe Sequel is not that popular.

I upgraded to sequel 3 last week. To me it is functionally te same as sequel 2. I don't use many of the loops and tend to record everything live. I'm having problems with it though ... With lots of popping and crackling on recording which I never jadeite sequel 2

Dragging backing tracks into sequel for example. I managed it once. Bit for some reason no more.
I haven't used it in any depth as yet but am sure there'll be little improvements.

64-bit is a must.
I suppose sequel would be a fantastic success if VSTi 2 support was integrated. I think they don't do it because of Cubase ...

Thanks for the posts. It sure is disappointing to upgrade a product so that it is supposedly better for your productivity or gives better features - and then you have audio problems with a setup that has not changed in any other way.....

Agree that being able to use VSTi 2 would make Sequel a whole lot more versatile. The built in effects and instruments really restrict creativity. I have a lot of plugins and soft instruments.

I run Cubase normally but have just started using Sequel 3 for loop based music creation It's an interesting way to go, but even with some additional loop sets, you soon get bored with them. The other thing is that the automatic retuning of audio loops and midi loops does not work very well and the retuning sounds unnatural and tonally 'wrong' in a lot of cases. Sequel could be smarter here.

This is the worst forum for getting replies - S3 users just don't seem that bothered

I havn't needed 64 bit so far during the last 14 music production and its never held me back, so don't see any advantage in getting it now........less can be more

it would be nice to have a version that doesn't have bugs though just once.

Hi - I am an AVID Sequel 3 user ! I still love it, and use it pretty much daily, and have done for the last couple of years. I find it quick and easy to use, so that creatively I can get my ideas down without having too many complications in setting things up. I am considering getting Cubase 7, but having got the trial version at the moment, I am finding it a steep learning curve compared to Sequel. The only reason I am trying it is for the access to my Moog VST2 instrument...

Aloha,

Have S3 here. But

As much as I love Cubase I just cannot get my head around Sequel.

To me apps like Sequel and GarageBand should not need much of a manual
but with Sequel not so.

I have a straight (no FXs) solo 'Slack Key' guitar session coming up this Sunday
and because of this post I will try it again.

I started with with Sequel, then S2 and now S3. The sounds in Sequel can't be faulted, however it's just a very fiddly DAW. I've started to use the Sequel sounds/packs in Cubase Elements instead.

In my experience you will quickly overcome these problems if you purchase a USB Dongle. Licenses on the dongle are stable and you can re install whenever you need to

I am aware that my post is somewhat off topic although i am adding to your list of "Sequal 3" users.

First a little bit of noise:

Yesterday ( Sat, Nov 1, 2014 ) I purchased Sequel 3. My account plus my USB/eLicenser shows Sequel 3 with a full license however when i launch S3 it comes up as unregistered and noting that i am entitled to additional content for free if i register. What the****.

I appreciate the fact that Steinberg use a copy rite protection system because i have been using Steinberg software for more then twenty years and have gone thru all sorts of Steinberg schemes that protect their software. It's reassuring to know that only "paid" users have full use of their programmes.

Having said that this latest scheme has me rather upset. I have contacted Steinberg support and their reply:
We will take care of your request and get back to you as soon as possible. Please note that due to bank holidays and large trade shows (e.g. Musikmesse in Frankfurt and NAMM shows) the response might be delayed.


Meanwhile i have tried Sequel 3 and there are a few quirks which i will elaborate in a followup post shortly.

This looks like a good forum of Sequel 3 users.

I posted a similar tread myself recently but just found this one, so I will add to it.
Yes, Yes, Yes, Steinberg please start taking Sequel seriously. It is by far the best designed piece of DAW software out.
Steinberg you yourself called it your "next generation software" and then you forgot about it almost completely. You really have done an amazing job designing a piece of software that foster creative workflow unlike any other on the market. I would gladly pay what I paid for Cubase 7.5 for a version of Sequel without endless bugs, with VST2 support,
and a few other additions. Please?

Well it seems that even if you do make a noise and tell Steinberg how good S3 is, they still don't give a damn................nothing new yet and probably never will be - challenge to Steinberg - prove me wrong!!! :twisted:
