Post by More Cowbell »

Why do I feel Steinberg lost their active faithful forum members? No new information. Where are the love for cubase? using others software? Or simple making music with cubase? :-) Hmm I am looking at that apollo UAD card with PT10. Soon...

I gotta admit, ive taken a break from forum participation for a little while. And my first reaction when coming back is this forum seems to have really slowed. Its a shame cos its a a good one. Its still ticking over, but its def not as active as it once was.


ON the other hand my other impression is its not as *witch* and argumentative as Gearslutz. This forum is much nicer. has a great vibe and members are very helpful. Just wish it was a tad more active.

I can assume certain subjects are lacking individual interest, people are making more music (I certainly am), certain long time well liked members have left, or have been banned...or all of the above ...plus.

Yes, but unfortunately they were knowledgeable people who have, on occasion, helped me enormously. When is the last time a mod helped you? Me-- never. Or are you like so many others that rely on members for assistance?

Yep, bit of a graveyard round here of late. Infact, since this new forum was introduced. Gotta accept that that's what Steinberg want. More action available in other places; Number 6 has his own forum, Gearslutz has a nice balance of stupid and very helpful, there are more 8-)

This is nothing compared to the Nuendo forum. I was looking forward to being part of the Nuendo forum but it is even more of a graveyard. Days go by by with no new posts, very disappointing.

I agree with this. Overall after a number of years its easy to see how hard it is to run a balanced forum. If you keep it very open (circa 2001 - 2005) you can wind up with a lot of hysterical loudmouths who spend all day slamming the warez versions of products that you make. Of course when its that open , you also get a lot of good ,helpful and productive posters. We can all think of posters that we regret were banned or miss seeing posts but then at least I can think of some who should have been banned years before they were.And its all so subjective.

I don't spend that much time posting in music forums these days.

It will be even deader over on the Nuendo side once my Nuendo license sells :? (not that I posted that much there anyway)

Heck, I haven't been very active here either due to a packed schedule.

You're taking about the Music Lounge... right?

The other parts of the forum seem to be alive and well, after all this is what the Steinberg forums is for, users to help users is it not?

The trouble is that Cubase just got too darn slick and reliable. These days it's only the updates that cause brief moments of excitement, when something stops working, or changes colour. The forum comes briefly back to life but problems get solved so quickly these days.

Oh, for that old BSOD, or Berylium figuratively slicing up some poor unsuspecting newbie... :( :lol:

Thats my point; when you take warez users out of the equation you get a better view of how well Cubase works and less screamers. It was never as bad as some made it out to be over the years and I suspect that many screamers just couldn't figure out their downloaded copy
