Yes I get that. I just want this to be true. Pretty sure I’ve been requesting this since before Bitwig even existed.
All I really want from a cubase update is native mod sources & the shitty quick controls to be updated to macros that can be assigned to multiple parameters with varying depths
Cubase is obviously awesome for film scorers & composers, not so much for electronic producers anymore. It’s been well & truly left in the dust by the likes of Ableton & Bitwig in that regard.
Wouldn’t take much to get it up to par, but steinberg insist on ignoring workflow improvements to add fluff no serious producer needs. They are trying to appeal to newcomers by adding FX & instruments so they won’t feel the need to buy 3rd party tools. Unfortunately (aside from Freq2 EQ) anything they’ve added in recent updates is borderline useless to me.
The only new additions since I’ve owned cubase that I actually make use of are the Bézier curves in automation & MIDI CC lanes & sampler tracks. Literally everything else is filler to an electronic music producer.
No doubt 11.5 will be more of the same. I’m not expecting the features I crave because why would SB change the habit of a lifetime? We’ll probably get some crap new native FX, bug fixes that should have been free & the rest of this cycle’s development probably went into compatibility for M1 macs & Win 11.
I doubt this update will even be as good as 10.5 which was by far the most lack lustre update in several years
