Appealing to Steinberg to keep the CMC current viable?

Yet the CC121 which is an older product is still being sold. Go figure…

I still see CMC controllers being sold in my corner of the world (Europe). Even the shop which I practically mugged for every CMC controller, is having new ones in stock. There is still hope left? :confused:

You must be living in a CMC hotspot :mrgreen:

Everyday you breathe there’s hope, but in Steinberg’s case… well… i’m about to chime in with the general misbelief in this thread… Thinking about it for a while ain’t going to make me understand this Yamaha/Steinberg-hit-and-run-phenomenon we all in here have experienced to different degrees…

I know a few really good programmers, and one in particular that made the CMC’s available for Reaper… and with astonishing result’s to the functionality from scratch to finished working solution in only 2 Weeks.
Yes he hacked the communication between the hardware and computer and wrote a new driver…

I also can see WHY steinberg don’t release any SDK ( even if i pray this would happen in a near future) to these controllers as it would kill sales on new products for along time. A fact that is painfully obvious is the way this company always seem to strive to get new shiny coins in their pockets despite of how current cosumers react… they know there will always be new users eager to fill in the blanks where old grumpy users sit on their asses waiting for them to do what’s right… so why bother about countless of longtime, loyal users? " Let’s quadripplef*ck them in the @ss–weehaawww"

Well… i purchased the update, filled their pockets with coins, just to realize iv’e been f*cked again, this software STILL isn’t going to make me work faster…Steinberg don’t want us to be happy and work fast, they want us to fill their pockets with gold and therefor won’t make this a fast, nifty tool for musicproduction… they make it a relatively fast doughbucket so they get more time to develop new doughbucket features to keep the weels spinning… i see it now but just can’t commit to it.

I also know everything that’s written in here is totally pointless, but hope is hard to kill.

All the best fellow CMC’ers

I think Steinberg should stay in software innovation, and focus on the next step : “Touch”, but not a “adaptation” as something that just…work (as Cubase work for me) !

well I began with Pro24 on atari and it was so new perspectives (well for me)…Well I can do so much…now with a computer…
Ready for next…Jump…

CMCs are the best designed and well thought out hardware controllers I’ve ever used.

It’s as simple as that.

Please continue to support them.

CMCs are brilliant. please continue to support them in future Cubase versions. Drop its support and damage your future product sales Steinberg! One more burning of your customers like you have done in the past with drivers/firmware updates will really be the nail in the coffin for Steinberg hardware. I hope you have learnt your lessons!

It’s all about profit and not some love for making music with gear they themselves love to use… they see a small idea that can be profitable and go from there… it’s not primarily to tie very happy userbase to the brand and continue to grow that way…

Making new sh*t and discontinue the old sh*t ( that’s mere left the factory) is the way they go and always has been…

It’s hilariously sad to have spent $1800 two weeks after they released these controllers and bought 8 of them… believing “this new modular hype” … seeing a tremendous potential… ( being a cheap plastic like looking toy included ) just to find out they already at the start had a finite lifespan… I whish to this day i, or someone, will be able to give Steinberg excecutive’s a flaming kick were it hurts the most as a “thank you” for treating their userbase as loosers.

Cmc-Ch is the best controller for my 2nd production environment(laptop),there is nothing as handy and light on the market.
I hope they keep the cmc`s at least supported in the next cubase versions.

This was a straight abandonment of it’s users.

Funny thing is that we aren’t asking for a team… have 1 coder do a weekly compilation of what we want.
It’ll take a few days of work …and do this every 3-4 months.
We’re not asking much!!
