I am almost done with Steinberg. I own Cubase 10 Pro and Dorico 4 Pro and I have never seen such bug-ridden pieces of software before! It’s unbelievable how Steinberg is allowed to go on releasing such poorly written products. This would be unacceptable in any other area except, it seems, the music industry. And no, I don’t want to erase my preferences folder, or go on a quest for some dll lost to god. You charge premium for your software, your service should be premium!
After a few weeks without using Cubase, I opened it only to find it being stuck on ‘initializing video’ bit of the loading screen. I tried updating my video card, reading online, erasing the preferences folder (g****mnit!) and none of that works. Sometimes the program starts, sometimes it doesn’t, but it always ends up crashing at any point.
I’ve also noticed that it no longer remembers my Plugins folders properly, and I have to keep updating it whenever I open the program.
My next step is reinstalling, but I’ve decided to post this and see if Steinberg has any real solutions to the problems they’re causing their clients.
