The only change we wanted in 10.5 :dog:
Certainly the one I wanted, and was expecting. I should have known better.
So there is no scaling available at all for HiDPI monitors?

I bought the crossgrade in the sale earlier this year but have not yet registered it. If there is no scaling at all I may just wait for version 11 to register.

I've returned to V10 after 2 hours and 20 crashes later. 10.5 is hanging almost every time a add an insert while playing. Had it with waves and fabfilter, so i don't think it's related to the plugin manufacturer. This is unworkable for me.. more people having this?

"Cycle mode activation in the timeline is now optional">> Finally this "feature" has been made optional! :clap: It was such a nuisance... :hihi: I guess this small usability improvement alone will make many users happy.

What I am looking forward to is all the minor or unreported features and tweaks. They ALWAYS have dozens of little things they improve but don't mention in their website pages.

Cubase has been becoming more and more efficient and refined over the last several releases, and most changes come from user requests (no they don't give every single request, but the features that do get added were usually requested). So I am upgrading right away. Several cool changes being advertised, and likely many more to be discovered!

MacOS 10.12.6 / Mac Pro 6,1 / 8-Core Intel Xeon E5 / 16 GB on a medium size project.

C10 is still having CPU issues for me, average load almost always maxed out, lots of glitches and sometimes audio disappearing, having to restart cubase to fix it. This seems to be a bit better in C10.5 as far as i can see now.

Just $60 for the full upgrade? That's an improvement right there, no?
no, that is normal price for 10 to 10.5 or x.0 to x.5...
if you wait till summer, you can get 40% or 50% perhaps..
I seem to recall $100 or so for the .5 upgrades and $200 for the number upgrades, but my memory is fuzzy on all of it. Maybe I'm including an extra couple of bucks for Padshop Pro?

I have, and will, upgrade regardless. People debate this endlessly, but keeping Cubase current is probably the best money I spend on my studio.

Yes... and no more automatic activating of another loaded project when closing down. The 2 most single most annoying things to happen with Cubase when they do. No matter how much we try to avoid them, they always seem to happen.

I went back to Studio One after trying Cubase 10...it just looked awful on my (4K) monitor and seems to be a patchwork of half a dozen different GUI styles and pop up windows. Its a super powerful DAW, but it really needs a major overhaul to the GUI and workflow not just tweaks and new stuff in my opinion.

Interesting comment - I’m afraid, that as previous Logic-user, present Live-user, I will have same kind reaction, once I one day open the purchased product.

I assume there's a Padshop PRO 2 upgrade coming somewhere...
Never assume... They're dropping the pro version to 'streamline their portfolio'. Mentioned in the KVR news.

i live in europe so it is in euro's... but i believe that .5 were always €59,90 and for the number upgrades €99, or so.

for .5 i will not wait for a sale, for a number update i will wait (exception: when the number update is so impressive, i will go for it).

and i agree, and everybody discusses every DAW, keeping cubase current is also my way, it still is and will be my main DAW, even if i use ableton/reaper/reason/maschine.
win 10 pro; cubase 10.5 pro, live 10 suite (+push 2), reaper, arturia V collection 6, reason 10, maschine (mk3+jam), korg collection, komplete 11 ultimate, softube modular, VM and many more..
