Worse, since I am still a student (IT) I even have trouble reading the assignments.
Answer: print it out

It's just how things go unfortunately.

It makes me wonder why some publishing house hasn't approached SB and asked for the right to print and distribute as well as market tutorials etc., as I'm sure there'd be money in it but to expect SB to wind back the clock on this issue...
... ain't gonna happen

Personally I have little use for Loopmash, although I like it, and do not care if I am 'cross-subsidising' people who use it. We hardly ever use the Score Editor, List editor, Rewire, and many of the MIDI functions because it is not what we do at ABC Studios. Still I am happy to have them available and appreciate the choice of being able to use them or not.

Pretty bad comparison. Manual didn't disappear, it's still there and you CAN use it and read it, so you can get all info you need. And if you really really need it on the paper you can print it. But if they take features away it means that you can't use that stuff any more, never and noway, and you can't have it back without SB.
As for me, I don't need it, it's not a novel or a kind.. and I don't need Cubase to be cheaper for a couple of $, that the manual could cost, I better give those $ to SB team for their pleasure, perhaps they would be a bit happier and meet our needs a bit quicker.
What I really need is have all new undocumented features of every new version of Cubase Hilighted in a separate PDF.

Now that you mention, I rather enjoy surprises and am at one with the Steinberg release methodology

galvinstephen wrote:No. It is an excellent comparison Winter Rat. You just need to understand that we are not all the same and then you will get it. Kind of an epiphany.
galvinstephen wrote:Good point. We could start a new 'discovery' thread. "Look what i found in Cubase today?" Maye be organise 'Search for the new feature' competitions, like transpose your MIDI down two octaves to get it to function. That sort of thing. Could be quite pleasant actually.

It's a reasonable request for a printed manual to be included but the pdf serves the purpose and I guess those who would like the printed manual are in the minority. At the end of the day Steinberg is a business and including the manual in every product will cut into the profit margins. All what is a small cost per boxed product will add up.
