Thanks for the update but disappointing to see the Eucon/VCA bug still not fixed (unable to mute VCAs from the control surface). Been waiting for this to be resolved since 8.5.

what about the limitation of loading VST plugins issue many users have?
is steinberg anything doing to lift the limitation like studio one recently did?

thank you for the update. Unfortunately none of the issues I have has been fixed. Including this serious one
viewtopic.php?f=253&t=126720&p=724013#p724013

So many times I screwed my projects because I was editing several tracks at the same time without knowing it (while in Q-link mode).

01 Create two tracks.
02 Move one of them into Collapsed folder.
03 Open mix console, or lower zone mix console.
04 On the mix console choose folded track
05 On the arranger window click on unfolded track
result: both tracks are being selected as if I were holding CTRL button.

Got the update installed; no problems at all.

The peak numbers (below the meters) haven't changed as far as I can tell; still barely visible. The broken 'strikethrough' look of the numbers on the actual meters is still, err, broken...!

Here's what they look like now, compared to v9.0.40
Mixer_meter clarity_Cb9520.png
C9.5.20 - Ugly lines through the numbers
(18.93 KiB) Not downloaded yet
Mixer_meter clarity_Cb9040.png
C9.0.40 - Clearer number legibility
(76.48 KiB) Not downloaded yet

Its the same throughout the app of course, Inspector and Edit Channel Settings

Cheers,
puma

They look exactly the same as Cubase 9 for me.

FLS max:

C9.5.2=84
It's a little better, but not resolved.

Thanks to all for the posts & pics regarding the peak meter fonts.

In 9.5 I use 24 channel sizing & am able to read the peaks. What number channel sizing are your pics at?
With the last several updates I had to zoom out to 15 or more & still could barely read the peak numbers.

Wish we could change those font colors for peaks. A brighter yellow or green would make much more sense than dark grey when relying on meter specific info!

Works fine here. If this was a widespread issue you can bet that there would be a much bigger outcry, because that would make Cubase unusable for a lot of people.

Martin requested you to send him your crash logs in another thread. Did you do that? This is far less likely to get fixed without the cooperation of the few people having the issue.

Steinberg release a new update of Cubase the same day as Avid release a new update of Eucon...

Apart from the VCA Mute not working, does Cubase mix console state mirror onto Avid control surface yet?

Been quite a while now or is such basic functionality updates to control surfaces not considered maintainence or are Steinberg simply giving Avid surface users a very cold shoulder, maybe a very public divorce as they climb into bed with another brand controller?

Is this because I have symbolic links on my main drive pointing to the content on my external drive and this installer can't figure it out?


Logic X updates content to the external drive via a symbolic link no problems.

Cubase cannot do this?

My experience isn't great to be honest.

Steinberg update crashed my MacBook Pro - so I downloaded the update manually instead.

- Insert slot truncation isn't fixed in the lower zone
- Media Bay folder order is half fixed, sub folders are still out of order, as are folders under 'Favourites' in the right zone
- Cubase still hangs on quit most of the time, even with a completely blank project

The FLS limit has been increased in the 9.5.20 and there will be more improvements in the future updates. This is definitely on our list.

If open a 9.5.10 project in 9.5.20 and the problem still exists please open the lower zone mix console, zoom the channel width to maximum, save the project, close and open Cubase again. When you then open the project it should be fine. If not, we will need more details about your system.

That is on our list, but the fix didn't make it into the 9.5.20. But it is scheduled for 9.5.30.
