I just wanted to say thanks for developing an awesome tool, without which much of what I do would not be possible at worst and at best would be considerably more difficult to do in other DAW’s. I’m invested in seeing Cubase improve and I believe some features can be easier to use and more cohesive. But overall I can’t find another DAW that even remotely works the way I want it to. Cubase is a whiteboard that responds the way I want it to. And for that I am very grateful!
In 2015 I composed by night and by day managed the support department for a software company while working with a UX designer and programmers to improve software. I know first hand how difficult it is to develop and balance diverse customer input to innovate effective solutions. Cubase, like every other piece of software in existence, has its bugs and some take a long time to work out or get to. Prioritization is crucial to managing that. But ultimately, I’ve been able to write music, score films, commercials, and themes with Cubase all this time and the bottom line is that it’s all really about making music, which it helps us do very well. Expression Maps and Midi are my favorite things. And despite having had to make a tool to make Expression Maps easier to mass-create, I have to recognize that no other DAW even has this feature aside from Cubase! So good on you!
Others may have different feedback and I don’t doubt that their feedback may contain constructive information. But I feel compelled to state how pleased I am with this software. I’ve been frustrated before, but the more I think about it the more I realize how much Cubase has helped me accomplish. I truly take it for granted every day. And for that I feel that expressing appreciation is long overdue.
So again, thank you for your hard work. Keep it up!
