That’s it! I’m a engineer/producer, long time Cubase user (more than 12 years) and bought Cubase 6 some time ago.
I thought the new feature looked promising.
However there was no indication that Steinberg had done massive changes to the behaviour of certian elements. Like how you work with the lanes. Which messed up my workflow badly. So badly I had to go back to Cubase 4 again. The old workflow was simply so intuive to me I couldn’t work with Cubase 6.
I wrote several mails to the support, asking if there was something to do? And after the 5 attempt without any replies, I wrote to the support asking “At least please tell me, are you even considering a chang in the way Cubase 6 behaves with lanes/comping?” Again, I got no reply.
So last week I had it, (after all I couldn’t use Cubase 6, the lane behaviour was so “opposite” the way it used to be, I couldn’t get used to it after weeks of re-trying) and started looking for an alternativ DAW. Working with Cubase 4 isn’t what I’m looking for 2012, when it comes to features.
And I found Reaper, and after a 4-5 days working with it I’m happy to be out of Cubase world forever. Reaper is super user-friendly and behaves the way YOU want. And the developers/support are actually replying to your
Ironic, that just a 6.5 update (with updated lane/comp behaviour!) was announced today.
Well, the way Steinberg treats their customers. One little reply saying “we are working a update!”, or anything would have made the difference. And they’re charging for a .5 update?
Auf Wiedersen Steinberg, I’m moving on.
