I would never upload my creations and projects to remote servers over the net !
For me the MIDI editing and other new features are minor, nothing really exciting.
There are so many enhancements that could (should) have been done in MIDI, Video etc areas.
I’ve been waiting for ages for improvements in SCORE EDITOR : nothing in 8 and nothing in 8.5. Will there ever be any ?
On the other hand, maybe there 's enough for a “.5” version.
In this case, for my part, the only and most important reason I would eventually update would be the bug fixes. Hope there is any !
Sorry Steinberg, no offense, I know any update implies a LOT of work, but still waiting for 9 with, I hope, game changer new features ! any date ?
By the way, why all your video presentations are always done on Mac ? Don’t you have any PC and Windows 10 at hand ?!
