Did the last post get locked because I criticised Steinberg marketing? Isn’t that a little unnecessary?
I’ve been investing in Steinberg products for over 20 years and still rely on them to make my living, so I feel that I have a right to open a discussion when I feel that a fantastic piece of software that I have made a commitment to is being undermined by terrible marketing. I’m well aware of print times and I know that magazines are always keen to get hands-on previews so that they can get their reviews out early.
I don’t know the L.A post scene, but I’ve been working in London for about ten years. There are maybe 2 or 3 small places here who use Nuendo and that tends to be because their founders have come through the National Film and Television School, which as I said has now scrapped Nuendo so that source is going to dry up pretty quick. Everyone else uses Pro Tools and I tend to get a lot of nervousness from directors when they see that I’m using software they’ve never heard of.
I’ll still keep using Nuendo because I’m stubborn and I absolutely love working with it, but I don’t think I should be censored just because I have genuine concerns about the company’s future.
