A long time ago I spent about an hour to create my own arrangement of my plugins. Two of them include all plugins sorted by 1) vendor and 2) function (dynamics, EQ, distortion, etc.). The third one is just a small selection of my favorite/go-to plugins. With these three libraries I’m always able to find exactly what I want in just a few seconds.
All worked flawless on C9.5 for a few hours working on a project. Seems all is ok with latency speed midi timing and plugins32 and 64 bit. So great. Do not know about the VST3 Presets locations, seems everything is fine and running very well.
Well, I encountered three issues since yesterday.
Configuration files of the 9.03 weren’t transferred. I did it manually and C9.5 won’t start. So I did a reset and copied only userpreferences, keycommands and port setup.xml. Those have been accepted.
VSTs bridged with jbridge seem to work functionally, but have no GUI anymore, any.
And I had the the issue with the missing FLUX presets too.
Worked on it all day yesterday-loving it! Love the curves. So much easier to get what I want quickly with automation! LOVE the range editing (FINALLY!!!) Key commands transferred over fine for me on mac.
Actually I love the style of the comps and magneto, have a lot of use for the new right zone. Even tiny cosmetics like new studio menu are rather helpful. All in all it looks and feels smoother and more tidy.
I’ll chime in again and say that they did some really great work on this version. My need is that they finish what they started with things like automation trim (seeing precisely how much you’re adjusting it is key for the super fast pace and precise amounts that I need to work at for clients), Bezier curves in MIDI editors, etc. I hope 9.5 is an general indication of how things will be from now on with Steinberg, because it does create a loyal fanbase. There are still many little things that 100% need attention, but I’m happy that it seems to be headed in a positive direction.
My Preferences all migrated fine except for the colors (which seem to be setup in an entirely new way). So now a bunch of items like the faders for example are uncolored & just show outlines. Anyone else have this happen?
Also the background colors seem to be restricted so they can only be very dark (too dark for my taste).
Its too early (didnt this used to come along in early December? I missed the grace period thang) and now too expensive… from 8.5 - will have to wait. I dont see $200 worth of improvements. But reading y’all with interest. Bleeding edgers!
To me Cubase 9 + 9.5 is $300 worth of improvements, minimum. You can work so fast now that this feels like a different DAW. Both the workflow and the graphics are faster and smoother, and it seems that the 64 bit audio engine actually uses less CPU.
