Hi, I have used previous versions of cubase in the past… pretty much all of them up to cubase 5, since then I have been using Reaper and
blown away by its configurability and stability & love its batch export of regions!, but missing some other features,
Having looked over the features I love the variaudio, hitpoints, tempomap stuff, ability to monitor k14 etc… Also one of the main things was
to use alongside my Softube console 1 for auto naming and track ordering etc, this feature is briliiant (and sorely missing from reaper)
So I ordered a new cubase pro 8 package, and installed on intel based windows 7x64 machine, and then updated to 8.05.
I have found it to be super unstable, random lockups and crashing, some projects wont load after they are saved etc… to be honest its absolutley ridiculous… In the years of using reaper with the same plugins (Slate/Softube/Waves/Eventide) I have had 1 maybe 2 crashes… (maybe!) I cannot honestly remember any crashes… and never had an issue of not being able to load up a project that I had saved.
Yet in 3 days of Cubase 8.05 I have had 30-40 crashes and 2 projects that wont load, they just hang loading .
1 project that was saved with cubase 8 says it was created with cubase v1.x and cannot be loaded lol
Very poor releasing a product thats so unstable, I can understand using 3rd party plugins may cause some issues, but these are the same plugins I have used for years with Reaper and NO issues
Hoping for a Fast major update from steinberg
