My 2 cents:
Can anyone say, “first world problems”?
Even when Steinberg announces compatibility with El Capitan, there’s still gonna be lots of bugs… with users asking, demanding “when, when, when?”
This is the nature of digital.
Your VERY BEST BET and HOPE of having a fulfilling, creative, musical experience is to NOT upgrade. Stick with what works… wait for everyone else to test… then eventually swoop in 6 months later on your Joy plane and upgrade.
I tell you this from experience. I’m tired of banging my head against the wall to fix bugs. Bugs caused by the new OS, bugs caused by Cubase, bugs caused by third party plugins. Every new thing installed somehow f***s with what was already working… and then you try to find who’s to blame… and half the time you end up wrong.
Those of you who bought a new computer with El Capitaln, well that sucks. Downgrade to Yosemite for 6 months, and enjoy.
What the digital world doesn’t want you to know is that the people who upgrade right away when a product is “released” actually ARE the beta testers. You are buying products still in beta, though claimed to be ready. And so, if Steinberg is to blame, it is because they are playing the game like everyone else. Or rather, in this case, NOT playing the game which makes them look slower, relatively speaking.
