I have Cubase 8.5 paid for and ready to be activated when Cubase 9 comes out.
I’m wondering if I should just get down to working with Cubase 8.5.20 right away then, or continue happily working on 7.5.40 until the .30 version of Cubase 8.5 gets released.I guess in my mind I’d jump right in to 8.5.20 if the only remaining reported bugs were minor ones.
Does anyone have a sense of which bugs remain in 8.5.20 to be addressed? I’ve looked at the official Cubase “Issues” subfora, but it’s difficult for me to clearly piece what is left to be addressed.
Cubase 6.5 is rock solid for me. If I were you I’d stop at that version. I suppose you’ve got many projects to do so you don’t have any spare time to experiment installing and uninstalling new software. So better stay where you are.
Cubase Pro 8.5.20 works well for me on Windows 7. I would start using it to make the transition from 7.5 to 9 smoother. They did add and change a fair amount of stuff, and they dropped a lot of hints that Cubase Pro 9 will be a huge update. Apparently the Inspector will receive a redesign, the 32 bit version most likely had to be dropped due to big engine changes and/or optimizations, among other things.
