Steinberg Hub - Gripe and Solution

Here is a minor gripe and solution.

Just upgraded to Nuendo 13. When I open the program the first thing I see is an ADVERTISMENT to buy software in the “news.”

I paid money to have more professional level software not ads please.

So, the first thing I did was come to this forum and find a quick solution:

Edit >Preferences>General>“Show news in hub” - UNTICKED

Why is this even a thing? We are so bombarded with Ads from the internet everyday. Steinberg, please dont go in this direction.

…forgot to mention the ad opens four instances of MS Edge Web View… YUCK!

Hi and welcome to the forum,

Because you receives lots of interesting informations like video tutorials, updates, etc. in the Hub.

I would rather the Hub give me news, than missing across the board specials, in an email; like 40% off for something I will need at some point just to maintain OS compatibility, never mind new features (or lack thereof).

Thanks Martin,
I guess I was just suprised to see ads and MS webview in the task manager.

I still think the purposes can be seved better in email newsleter.

If I showed up a a venue and there was an ad for 40% off gaff tape displayed on the front of house console Id be horrified
