Cubasis 3 is my main software for music production. It has not all the features of Cubase but it is improving constantly - so much that it is my tool of choice. Like all software on this planet Cubasis has some bugs and the defect rate is within normal figures for a professional product. Nonetheless some bugs really make it impossible for me to do certain things I’d like to do.
I know the issues I reported go into the bug tracker of the Cubasis team and I’m confident that they will be treated. Anyway, I’d really like a communicated rough roadmap of bugfixes. I’m also in the software industry and I know that bugfixes are very hard to estimate as you can always discover on the way that a bug is more difficult to fix than expected and might be moved to the next release train. I would also definitely prefer shorter release cycles for bugfixes. You have a beta program - I am also part of it - and the community would support you in testing.
I don’t want to lecture you how you develop your software - this is just my user perspective. In the past there were some issues that were not fixed in years although being ‘on the list’. Being a bit more open about bugfixes and a more transparent release schedule would definitely give users more trust to invest into Cubasis as their tool of choice for their projects. If this is communicated as a preliminary rough roadmap, I think the vast majority of users wouldn’t chop your head off if it is not exactly followed but rather appreciate the transparency and feeling of progress.
