I’m excited about the new features in Cubase 13.
But since it took them a year and a half to release, I was really hoping old bugs would be fixed.
No point in writing them down because these bugs are here for now 3 version, so I doubt Steinberg actually care or read these but here goes:
Render in place: When rendering with channel settings, If a track (or event) being rendered is sent to a group (or multiple groups) where one of them has multiple direct routing, the render will include the complete signal path including the groups.
PLE: Under media type: There’s still no distinction between midi track and instrument track. Making it impossible to select only midi tracks or only instrument tracks.
This one is inconsistent, but this happens more often than not: When quitting Cubase (on my 2019 Mac Pro, 28-core- 192 RAM, Running macOS Monterey) Cubase will crash when trying to close down the project forcing me to do a force quit.
I bet there are plenty more but these are the ones that bother me on a daily basis.
My bet: even in Cubase 15 there will still be bugs from the past which are not even minor. If - and I mean this seriously - Cubase / Steinberg will still be in business at this point in time, which I hope for various reasons, one if for the people (in Germany). Presonus is not doing good on “the greener side”: obviously they discarded an upgrade path from a lower version of their Studio One Artist Verion to the most current. I own SO Artist 5 and can only upgrade to the PRO version which is way too expensive and overloaded with features I don’t want. But at least they seem to release more frequently free updates with fixes and nice, new features for free over a lifespan of the major version. The next update price is then probably slightly higher though.
Coming back to Cubase 13: i used a Cubase 12 Activation Code to get the grace update but I am not stoked
