Back when Pro9 came along I resolved never to give steinberg anymore of my money. Alas it began to fail in ways that required a reinstall and I couldn’t find a version anywhere. so I broke down and bought the upgrade.
So far my biggest gripes is the sluggishness in regard to changing tools and applying processes - e.g. why does it now take 15 seconds to apply the reverse function? 20 years ago it happened pretty much instantaneously!
So now I’ve just tried to use the old pro 9 version on my laptop, but the process of upgrading has apparently now made that impossible! wtf? I don’t need to spend an hour installing 12 for what I am using my laptop for!
