I am sorry for being a little uncomfortable these days in the forum, however, I am just trying to place criticism where it is needed to see the product being made better for everybody.
I actually love Cubase and want it to become truly reliable and worthy of the “Pro” tag. And after a couple of years spent with it, having done multiple upgrades and updates, I feel like there are some serious issues both with the software and the way it is being handled.
I own literally 12 different DAWs and could work with any, but Cubase has the most comfortable UI and ideal feature set for composing soundtracks. It is my DAW of choice, but right now, I just can’t use it. Not in the state it is in and has been released for years now.
To give you a recent example, I mean - I get it. There are bugs that are super specific, under very rare circumstances hard to reproduce. Stuff that only pops up for very unlucky people. But from this update: “Sampler Tracks were referencing to the wrong audio files.” - really? That would be one issue that should have never made it into a release version. And it is just an example.
Version 11 has been released during the availability of MacOS Big Sur. I know, I know. Apple constantly changes and breaks things, and it is both difficult and annoying to keep up with them. But Cubase itself was already compatible - the fact that Groove Agent and Retrologue were not was visible as clear as daylight. It’s true that it is both unprofessional on my side to upgrade to the latest OS when it comes out and not wait for companies like Steinberg to confirm compatibility, but did such a visible bug really have to make it into a final release? That completely ruined my first impression. Aside from the fact that the CPU overload warning still alerts by default…
