We are happy to announce the availability of the 8.0.35 maintenance updates for Cubase Pro 8, Cubase Artist 8 and Cubase Elements/AI/LE 8! These updates are a free download and fully supported (please see the bottom of this post for links).
The update resolves several issues in different areas of the applications and adds official Mac OS X 10.11 (El Capitan) compatibility… To find out what is new in detail, please head over to this knowledgebase article.
I still can not add group tracks using Track Presets. Performance still severely affected when using the Scissors or Pencil Tools while playing back a project. I know they are not listed as fixes so was merely hoping. Will it still be fixed in Cubase 8.0.x?
With some caution and hesitation with a very brief test with the new 8.0.35 maintenance release (22-12-2015):
So far with large templates the expression maps do seem to be recalling correctly when the track has previously been disabled (as well as adding new tracks with Expression Maps and enabling disabling)
If it is truly fixed then 8.0.35 at the moment is ahead of 8.5…
Ed, what concerns me though is that [BON-14128] is not listed in the fixes? so I kinda feel that I still cannot trust this until a proper confirmation is made regarding this particular issue. Is it officially fixed or not?
Have there been some changes to the fonts? Seems like everything is bold now and hard to read. For example in the key editor it’s almost impossible to identify the velocity number. Is it just me or did anyone else notice this?
Are you being sarcastic? If not, what is it about 8.0.35 that warrants so much praise? The list of bug-fixes looks rather meager and does not include productivity-killing problems like the scissors/pencil tool lagging issue. I suppose that’s why this is only 8.0.35 rather than 8.0.40.
My latency problem with the scarlett solo was not solved with this update. I still get a popping sound when the input is connected with the scarlett solo and the buffer size down to 32 samples, in order to get a reasonable latency.
The fonts have definitely changed - some of them it does look like you’d need fairly sharp eyesight! I really like the new look though, it’s a lot crisper, and if I have to squint a bit, so be it I think there are a couple of threads or posts about a similar thing on the 8.5 Mac update
they are separate applications and reside in different folders.
Each version has its own Components folder and files, so that version-specific files are only used by that version - I had up to 7 major versions on the same system working side-by-side with no issues (21 including minor versions).
Only the files stored in C:\Program Files\Common Files\Steinberg are used by different versions (these mostly contain VST2 .dlls and extension files for the controllers / audio interfaces).
