could we have some more detailed information about the upcoming updates?
There are a couple of issues which are rendering Nuendo 5.5 quite useless for a lot of users - at least it is a pain in the as* to switch between 5 and 5.5 all the time - recording in 5 - (because of events on top / lanes) - editing in 5.5 (gridlines follow quantize option, hitpoint/drumediting stuff), going back to 5 - recording - opening in 5.5 for mixing…
- New Lanes are almost unusable
- Events-on-top after moving with mouse renders complex overdub/editing quite nasty
- new crosshatching / overlap concept renders complex overdub sessions to a big optical mess
I heard that “some” issues will be fixed - modified.
I fear that the “fix” or the “modification” will make it even worse, instead of just going back to a solid and working N4.3 style (regarding events/lanes etc) I fear a even more f+cked up situation which results in workflow-interruption again.
I fear that basic showstoppers will not be fixed because Steinberg does not understand why there is a problem. Project Manager and Software programmers are surely amazing talented and smart people but since the latest update I have the feeling that they are not using Nuendo by themself, at least not in a heavy duty enviroment.
Why do we need those infos:
It is not that I (we) are kids who are waiting impatient for X-Mass-Eve. I do not care if it tooks all time on earth to seriously fix things - IF (!!!) things are working then. But like countless other professional users I am in various important and big projects, others are upcoming etc, I need to carefully schedule downtime for installing/testing updates, I need to know if I can use 5.5 for upcoming projects or not, AND I need to calculate financial things in some way - because when there is no perspective to be able to use a working and awesome Nuendo in a couple of months I most likely have to go the Pro Tools route, even if I am a big Nuendo user and fan since I opened my doors 10 years ago.
Whats the problem in telling us detailed infos about upcoming fixes and dates?
