Well I’ve ran it for a few days now, and I haven’t come across anything in Cubase 6 that’s better, only things I hate, number one being the drab grey look the whole thing has now (it’s like switching over to a monochrome monitor!), it is hard to see the difference between midi/vst/sub group mixer strips, one big grey screen now.
I’m sure the rhythmic detection of drums probably does work, I would never use that anyway, the VST3.5 note expression looks good, but only works with Halion, so pointless again.
So maybe all the bugs in Cubase 5 have been fixed? No chance, the score editor bugs are still there, edit one note and often other notes on the screen change/appear, constantly having to hit UPDATE all the time. I don’t think the score editor has changed at all.
I still cannot access my CD drive for audio import in Cubase, Cubase just doesn’t see any content on the drive, every other program including Wavelab (6 & 7) sees it.
So no useful new features, old bugs still there, and I hate the drab grey look, Cubase 6 should have been Cubase 5.6 and a free upgrade.
I’m thinking about going back to Cubase 5. Cubase 6 is a BIG disappointment. With updates, the undocumented tweaks and bug fixes make upgrading usually worth it, there are none this time.
