As I did with Lion (10.7) I just read thru all ‘200 new features’
in the soon to be released OS 10.8 (Mountain Lion)
Even tho’ I read thru twice, I could find nothing that would be
helpful/more efficient/more productive etc to Cubase (or any DAW) users.
No new ‘Core Audio’ or ‘Core MIDI’ features are mentioned.
In fact the term ‘MIDI’ is not mentioned at all.
That’s two major releases now from Apple (10.7 and 10.8)
with no improvements in these areas.
Perhaps that’s it from Apple!
Perhaps from now on all audio/MIDI improvements on the Mac will now only
take place in applications. (Logic/Garageband etc)
I hope not.
I also hope that Win users will find some nice improvements/enhancements
for DAW users with ‘Metro’ on the PC side and maybe then Apple
can steal some kool ideas.
Now that it seems I have nothing musically to gain with an up-grade,
do I want to risk new compatibility issues by going forward with 10.8?
But this may change.
On the up-side, the cost is only $20.00.
