Because Cubase decided to overwrite GA SE4 with GA SE5. I had to reinstall Cubase again just to get GA SE4 back, lost hours of work and found out something even worse. All of my projects last month are now screwed over, even the ones I made in 9.5 because they also used the updated GA.
Let me emphasize this: None of the settings (and that includes sample selection) of any GA tracks I used last month, even in the ones made in 9.5, was carried over after I reinstalled Cubase 9.5. When I open those projects now I just have a blank instance of GA SE4.
Now my questions are:
- If I update in the future (to 10.5 for example), and have access to GA SE5, will my settings come back? I haven’t overwritten the saved projects that use GA SE5 after I reinstalled and went back to SE4.
- Whose genius idea is it to overwrite components of past versions when trialling a new one? And not even a warning? This totally feels like a scam/ cash grab guys.
