I’m sure this is a very well-worn topic but I just wondered, with all the updates/patches over the months since release, is 8.5 a good, stable product and a worthwhile upgrade from 8?
I’m just asking now because the Steinberg Summer Sale means I can upgrade for a very reasonable price.
But I don’t want to be beguiled by price when actually it might be better to stick with 8.
I don’t really use audio, I mainly work in the Score Editor to create large orchestral pieces using VSTs - EW Hollywood Orchestra Diamond etc. Plus QL Spaces for reverb.
In case it’s relevant I have a i7 5820K, 32gb RAM, 4x 500gb Samsung 850 EVOs, UR22 interface. Windows 7 64bit, but inevitably upgrading to 10 soon.
