Dear Cubase 6, Cubase Artist 6 and Cubase Elements 6 users,
Thanks to your help, we identified five critical issues after the release of Cubase 6.0.3 which were resolved in the past weeks. In order to make these improvements available to you as soon as possible, we are pleased to launch the 6.0.4 pre-release update today.
Most of you already know by now what “pre-release” means: the update has not completed our full QA testing cycle and is therefore officially unsupported, although our internal preliminary testing indicates that it is stable and reliable. We know that the term “unsupported pre-release” may sound off-putting to the faint-hearted and without doubt there is a trade-off between time and certainty. However, a pre-release allows us to make important improvements available to you very shortly after they have been accomplished and to publicly check if an issue is actually truly resolved on hundreds of different system and OS configurations or if we need to take it back to the drawing board for further fine-tuning.
The 6.0.4 pre-release resolves the following issues:
When using the new-in-6.0.3 “Gridlines in front of parts/events” function, the performance of the User Interface does not diminish anymore.
When using audio samples as metronome click, toggling the metronome on/off doesn’t lead to interruption of audio recordings.
When Control Room with more than one Studio bus is active, the metronome click doesn’t drop out.
Steinberg CI series audio hardware and Yamaha MOX synthesizer specific VST Connection port naming issues under Mac OS X Lion (10.7) systems is resolved.
Using the Altiverb plug-in or Yamaha MOTIF Editors in a Project together with video material does not render the application unreliable anymore.
The Update can be downloaded free of charge from the Steinberg website:
Please note that we aim to release a fully supported 6.0.5 maintenance update for Cubase 6, Cubase Artist 6 and Cubase Elements 6 in the upcoming months. Of course it will include all of the above listed enhancements plus a handful more.
Please keep this thread as clean as possible and let us know if the update resolves the issues listed above on your system. In case you experience new issues which haven’t shown up before, we surely want to know about these as well.
Thanks for choosing Cubase!
