My thoughts exactly. Updates in Cubase have been disappointing since I have Cubase (version 9).
They add always new gimmicks and “marketable” things, but they never fix or improve what they already have. They even break it more often than not!!! And they do nothing to fix it.
And then you see Presonus, which has released two free updates to their Studio One 5 and each one of these is equivalent to the update from 10.5 to 11.
Yearly updates are bad because:
- They are focused on adding marketable things instead of improving their program.
- They don’t update features unless it’s a paid update, so the DAW remains at least one year “unchanged” for this reason.
Yearly updates in Dorico, on the other hand, have been great, because they have add relevant things to their program and they have also release .1 updates that improved or added features for free. Why Cubase team and Dorico team behave so differently?
