this is not a tech post…
First: Thank you to all the brave souls, the forum moderators who have to deal with a lot of crap, frustration and anger! not an easy task!
and especially after this disastrous C10 release in the “old year”. i have never seen such an outcry in the forums about a release as this one, especially of the more “pro” users. (at least that is my impression)
so, thank you guys for copping it for the mysterious forces of corporate development, product policy, and R&D behind the well-insulated doors of Yamaha/Steinberg!
besides the obvious plea for a fast and uncomplicated fix for all that mess that had cost me and all the other “early adopters” about $150, i am asking for a straight and simple apology.
yes, Steinberg, if there still exists something of “old fashioned” accountability and sense of integrity now, in this fresh new 2019, is time for you to say:
Dear, loyal Cubase users. we are sorry for this new version of Cubase that caused so much trouble and time wasted AND extra $ for you. it seems somehow things went a bit out of control in R&D and many mistakes were made. sorry for making you, the annually well-paying customer, into an UNPAYED beta-tester for our product. We sincerely apologize and promise to do better with the next update/release. we promise to have our ear more on the ground and listen to your numerous feedbacks and suggestions. after all, YOU are the people dealing with our product on a daily basis.
wouldn’t that be wonderful? it would restore my trust in the company, the product, would make me much more tolerant towards the failings of Steinberg, would inspire me to give better and clearer feedback. it would inspire me to strive for more accountability and integrity in my own life.
well, you may say that i’m a dreamer, but i’m not the only one…
Happy New Year to you All!
