Some Cubase 12 teasers ? ( tired of netflix )

i finished squad game (netflix) Do u recommend another .?

There have been a few teething issues with the public rollout of Steinberg Licensing, though my impression from the Dorico forum is that many issues have already been resolved. My upgrade from Dorico 3.5 Pro to Dorico 4 Pro went smoothly.

I am sure Steinberg will take the time to learn lessons from this relatively limited rollout and implement any fixes. After that, I expect the Cubase 12 release will follow fairly quickly.

I think NAMM is more realistic. (3 june)

Well, I guess I can say that the release date really is unknown, even to those with an NDA!


I really laughed with this one!

:thinking: Wonder why?

I don’t know what you meant bythe comment, but in my own mind, reading the forums here (Cubase and Dorico), well… how to put it gently, my English is not good enough, I think at times that the Dorieis (doricians? doricans? dorians?) are the High Elves while we Cubasers are the Orcs. :rofl:

We Cubasers can riot for something as small the Default Color Set setting the whole city ablaze, while they can sit there in the middle of a software storm calmly and just respond “I see.” “Ah, it will be solved promptly.” “Nothing to worry about then.”

It struck me as a big understatement. Sorry if you took it the wrong way, I apologize.

No I didn’t take offence. I do understand your point, but I don’t think it is the case. I think the new licensing thing is a big upgrade for Steinberg. It need to be right first time. I do also think that Cubase is much more “mature” software, not so easy to make major changes as we would like. Dorico is relatively new. Might have been designed from the ground up with better programming practices, and they is why they can get updates and features quicker.

I do hope and pray, that Cubase 12, since there was no 11.5, and a lot of time passed, that we will get a lot of the features we need/asked for. Since the grace period started 2 months ago for Cubase - I can not see it running much longer. Grace period will normally not start before software is ready for release. I think the time spent from grace period to release is used to setup the release logistics. Manuals, videos, websites etc. Getting all the partner’s content etc. So yes, I believe Cubase is ready to go. Dorico programming team is not Cubase Programming team, but I think the both share the Steinberg Licensing team’s API. If the Licensing team give the go-ahead that the system is stable, and capable of handling the load. Steinberg did say shortly after Dorico.

Take my money. I’m ready to go dongle free and with free time to explore it new features.

Bring on Steinberg.

Actually I think I got I good idea while we staring at the computer waiting for some cubase 12 news.
While we wait for it to come out, why don’t you Steinberg get Greg Ondo to do a video demonstration of Cubase Pro 12 on YouTube channel? Even before you release it😉
It would make our weekend much better tho.
Go on, get Greg in action. 3 hours of dongle-free Cubase Pro 12

This gives me at least 2 yrs to worry about upgrading. It will be C 14 before the mess clears

Mountain Steinberg , its about cowboys playing and things like that (with cubase)

I was part of a zoom meeting (Mid November i think) where a well respected face attended, and the meeting narrowed down to about 5 of us and so became very candid/private ‘off the record’ talk.

They’re under NDA, of course, but despite that said that they didn’t know anything firm on C12 release (And you’d expect them to). However, they expected it to be VERY hot on the heels of Dorico and well within Q1.

So when you see all these talks of it being summer and such like, unless there’s serious issues with Dorico and the new system, I can’t see it. I was really pleased to see D4 come out this week, as it certainly seems to suggest that we’ll have C12 much sooner than later.

Probably come out of the blue within next 4-6 weeks is my sneaky thought, based on nothing but sheer hope. (GIVE ME THAT MIDI API!!!) lol :slight_smile:

this Grace period is sooo long, it’s not Grace anymore it became torture period :slightly_smiling_face:

It will come out this week. :face_with_monocle:

i think if they won’t release soon, a cracked cubase 12 version will come out sooner then the official one :grin:

I have enjoyed reading Dorico users sharing crash reports to help fix any issues with new licensing problems. It’s really quite polite on the main.

When it comes to C12 and the licensing, Steinberg will be accused of burning houses down, stealing children and running away with our licenses within the first 24 hours! They know it, we know it… :slight_smile:

Perhaps, we should all become better people in this interim period, start drinking fine wine and subscribe to a peaceful hipster lifestyle of greater acceptance.

I’m gonna go buy some beard wax and highly premium coffee beans and become a better person… Just don’t say anything that goes against my principles or I will attack with long words who’s meanings you will need to look up!!


If they need help they can do a public beta. When they start to sell it people have all right to expect it to be ready.
