In the announcement for the new licencing system, there is a mention that cubase 12 will be pushed to 2022. Does this mean no 11.5 in December?
No, we will go straight to Cubase 12 with the next release.
Added question, then : will there be updates for 11.0.x, in the meantime ? I’m thinking about the infamous unpinnable panels of the instrument tracks inspector, among others…
I can’t comment on the maintenance releases of Cubase 11 yet. But unfortunately I have to admit that the pinning issue will still not be fixed in Cubase 12. I guess I have mentioned it earlier to you that we need to redesign the whole concept of the inspector in order to fix this and this wasn’t possible for Cubase 12. I understand that this is unfortunate, but it’s definitely not ignored.
Noted. Thank for answering…
Thanks, somehow good to know!
So, no update this November?
No, no update this November.
Thanks for all the information. I really appreciate the open communication here.
Looking forward to use C12 on a new M1 Pro/Max computer soon…
This may be (probably is) the wrong place to post this but, I have a Cubase 4 license on an licenser that I purchased an upgrade to Cubase 11 for a few months ago. I’ve been waiting for 11.5 to activate to get the “grace period”. Will this still apply if I wait another tear until Cubase 12?
You can already activate it and the license will be eligible for the Grace Period update already. https://helpcenter.steinberg.de/hc/en-us/articles/4408738020498-Free-Grace-Period-Update-to-Cubase-12
Does this mean that Steinberg will stop naming major updates both x.0 and x.5 and only use x.0 in the future?
Sure hope so.
“No, no update this November.”
Good to know…now I can use my update savings to purchase other stuff.
As far as I read the Steinberg news, the next version would be 12? (even a grace-periode for new buyers)
That means they break the tradition of .5 versions every other year?
That is correct. There will be no Cubase 11.5. The next version will be Cubase 12.
But will there ever be a version 12.5?
I’ll record with Cubase 11 and party like it’s Cubase 99!
For this I also like to get an answer. No more .5 versions in the future ? Or only this time ?
