After being an ardent and long-term user of Cubase since v1 in the late 80’s I have come to the sad realisation that this DAW has now become too cumbersome and unreliable for me to continue using. The Sentinel has destroyed it for me. Every time I try and do any work there is a mandatory audit of my system and 10+ minutes wasted while Cubase rejects certain plugins which Ableton has no problem with. I got so tired of it that I just started using Ableton Live instead which is so light and nibble in comparison. Quick to load and reliable. I had to open a Cubase project today and was once again confronted with this total BS. It’s been nearly an hour and I still can’t get Cubase to open so that’s it I’m done with this abortion that is v9.
