I find the lack of involvement from Steinberg on these forums really sad. Timo drops in every blue moon, but doesn’t really engage over a longer period of time. I wrote about finding this sad in lengthy posts elsewhere on this forum.
If it was not for this great and helpful community, I’d seriously look for greener pastures as I find this situation highly frustrating. This community keeps it together for me with great tips and workarounds.
There are a handful of super mega awesome features no other DAW has because everybody is focusing on music and beat making, not on film post. Except for Avid, but I tried Pro Tools many times and I get a headache every time I install it. If any other DAW would get the handful of features Nuendo has that I absolutely love, I’d be gone. Many DAWs feel much more polished and modern. I don’t know how their product dev teams are in the forums, if they’re responsive, but their DAW feels more modern and they have a user interface paradigm I feel much more comfortable with. So even if their engagement was as bad as Steinberg’s, I’d be at least stuck with an overall more modern DAW.
But as it looks today, no DAW will do what Nuendo does in the coming months or even years. If at all. Music and beats is where the money is, it seems. Why bother with complicated ADR and batch export functions only a small percentage of users cares about. And that’s why I’ll stay here for now and voice my opinion as I care about this product, I work with it every day, I would like for it to get better and better and I wish there was more going on in terms of involvement from Steinberg with their active community. But alas, we’re here, talking to each other and agreeing on many things, only to see our involvement slowly evaporate into nothing.
I wonder. In the Cubase 8.5 videos Steinberg constantly talk about how they listened to their users and implemented requested functions. Who are those users and where do they talk to them…
