  • Thank you @LFS and team.

    Also, personally, I really appreciate the notes you post when you release.

  • Great job @LFS and Cubasis Team. Thank you for your work!

  • Great news! I will check the bugs I have open and update them with what I find.

  • Two of the three bugs I reported are now fixed, though this is still an issue:

    https://forums.steinberg.net/t/notes-dropped-when-generated-by-midi-plugins/720920/6

    Also, the repeated notes on MIDI sends appears to be fixed now, which is good news.

  • Great update thanks 😊

    I think it is fixed:

    CBT-2622 Resolves a serious problem where MIDI input could lead to dropped and hanging notes.

    At least in my use case with hanging/dropped notes from my BeatStep Pro. I also don’t experience the problem with Midi FX generators anymore.

  • I had a recurring issue where reordering plugins would mess up the chain, resetting plugin parameters. I hope that’s fixed since it seems similar to the “freeze” issue.
    I also observed an issue where Group tracks would not work properly. Sending a track to a group would sometimes not route ALL the audio, if you lowered the Group tracks volume to 0 you’d still get some of the original track sound. It only happened at times.
    I have to say I’m really enjoying Cubasis after the last update. Good job!

    I’m pleased to hear that your issue is resolved but I guess we are seeing two similar but not identical issues as my recreate still shows the issue is there for me. Could also be something in our setup which is different, of course. Does the exact recreate I mention in the bug report show the problem on your system?

    Edit: it does look like they tightened things up as I no longer see the issue with Helium as the MIDI producer, only when Atom is used to generate the MIDI,

    Sounds a bit like one of the other bugs I reported which is now fixed https://forums.steinberg.net/t/reordering-certain-plugins-causes-others-to-lose-corrupt-state/720836/2

    @LFS Nice Update!

    Cubase is slowly but surely improving bit-by-bit...
    Next week is WWDC'21 and I do hope there's at least some audio-related news to look forward to in iOS/iPadOS15.

    I'll be watching all relevant WWDC sessions and collect what I feel could make different in the coming years.

    When the 'Share Sheet' with Open In and Airdrop was introduced it took us ages to see wider support in audio-related apps to share data, same when it suddenly was possible to expose an apps 'Documents' folder to Files.app. Many apps still do not implement it which is a real bummer as it would make file & document sharing between apps a lot smoother.

    Thankfully Cubasis already supports the above features.

    Drag'n'Drop Audio & Midi To/From Cubasis would be a real blast though?

    Imagine Dragging an Audio-Event from Cubasis the time-line to a Sampler Plug-In like sEGments, reSlice or Koala?
    Or maybe Drag'n'Drop Audio & Midi from a Plug-In (ChordJam and Atom 2 as few examples) back to the Cubasis time-line?
    (This can already be done so it's not a technical limitation).

    As 'Open In Place' is already supported in iPadOS being able to directly open an AudioEvent in other apps for more detailed editing to overcome some of the current limitations when it comes to audio processing and editing in Cubasis.

    But for now, let's enjoy the Cubasis 3.3.1 update and the nice summer weather! :)
    Cheers!
    /Samuel

    So much things are fixed, especially AU state saving which works PERFECTLY now, but also multiple stacked AU midi FX recording, and this one is also a HUGE benefit from this update B) + lot of other fixes, even BeatHawk stuck notes :)

  • “ CBT-2595 Resolves a naming problem which can prevent audio events from playing back properly in the arranger. “
    paging Mr @AudioGus
    does this one fix the audio playback problem you were having ... i hadn’t thought of the concept it might be the file names causing problems,, but it makes sense as a lot of mine have long source string & descriptions in the name..
    i’ll wait for word from yr bad self until i update to version 3.3 ..

  • Thanks @LFS, 400+ tracks and counting. Every one made with Cubasis. Still the occasional glitch, but never any data lost. It’s kinda like a girlfriend. Every once in a while she cracks up, but the relationship goes on.

    Hi Mike,

    Hope you're up and well & glad to read this.
    And hopefully the new 3.3.1 is treating you well and supports you while being creative... ;)

    You're welcome, @JohnnyGoodyear... :)

  • Great updates @LFS

    I’ve really been enjoying working in Cubasis! A month or so ago I asked about a pink border surrounding the Waves plugins. Did you ever have a chance to look into that? It doesn’t really affect workflow so it’s not a “major” concern but it is kind of odd. Thanks!

    Hi @mtenk,

    Thanks for the kind reply and feedback! We're glad to read this.

    A month or so ago I asked about a pink border surrounding the Waves plugins.

    Unfortunately we have been unable to reproduce this so far.

    Are you able to reproduce this permanently?
    Please let me have more details once more (device info iOS/iPadOS info, step description) and we will give it another try.

    Thanks,
    Lars

    @LFS

    Yes, I am able to reproduce it permanently. It’s always there. Sometimes it’s a thick pink margin and sometimes it’s thin. Here’s a screen recording…

    iPad Air 4. IPadOS 14.5.1 (but also occurred prior to the 14.5 update).

    Thanks again!

  • Hi @mtenk,

    Unfortunately I'm unable to see it with the iPad Pro 12.9" 1st Gen myself.
    Shared the issue with the team.

    Thanks,
    Lars
