Folks, I don’t want to seem like a complainer - especially since I’ve used Cubase since the 80s. But the last few updates (more than a few actually) have all invariably caused one problem after another. I have not had a flawless update - even a minor update - in the last few years. There’s always something in the Rube Goldberg chain of products you need to actually get the update up and running - download manager, activation manager, e-license manager, the manager’s manager - and something inevitably breaks.
This latest experience with updating Wavelab was no exception. Not only did a procedure that should have taken a couple of minutes take more than a couple of hours, but once it was done, all my audio connections in Cubase (not even the product being updated!) were messed up to a point where I had to uninstall and reinstall my Fractal drivers.
Now, I see a Cubase update listed as “Required”, and I’m scared as hell of doing it. What else is going to break as a result of some potentially inconsequential update? Is Steinberg really incapable of setting up the update process seamlessly for such a great suite of products? Or am I the only one who faces such issues?
