Well I stopped posting here because of this endless moaning.
But let's have a look at this:
The standalone versions works fine and they work fine in the kore 1 stand alone version but not cubase!
Well, think about it for a moment. Could it possibly be your new version of Cubase?
The Arturia stuff works fine in standalone mode. Great, it works then. It also works in your Kore software. Great, it works.
But it doesn't work now you've got a new version of Cubase.
And yet you insist the problem must be with Arturia, despite the fact that you agree their software works outside Cubase.
Doesn't this strike you as rather illogical?
It'd make sense, at least, to have a word with the Cubase people.
But assuming the thing that needs to be adjusted is
something with the Arturia synths, let's consider that:
Ok, you expect the Arturia stuff to work with Cubase, and presumably you've got other software that is
compatible with it. It'd be much better if Arturia and Cubase were compatible. But basically a separate company, Cubase, has come out with a new version of their software, completely outside Arturia's control, and you expect them to just drop everything they're doing and jump to it just because you
happen to want to use these two bits of software together. And in addition to you, there's a collection of other people who want Arturia to drop everything else and jump to it to sort out compatibility issues with software that isn't made by Arturia and is outside their control, just because that's the setup they
happen to want.
It's the same on other software forums as well. I recently bought FM8. It's excellent, though NI fall short a bit with their support. But their forum is just like here - complaints and cries of `I've stopped using it because they won't make it do what I
For God's sake, if everyone behaved like that there wouldn't be any electronic music. What if Wendy Carlos had just complained about the problems with the early Moog modular and said `I've stopped using it because it dioesn't do this and that'? What if Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Kraftwerk and so on wouldn't use the early analogue synths because they had tuning problems? What if Peter Gabriel and a host of others hadn't used the Fairlight because of its shortcomings?
Or what if Depeche Mode had stopped using the PPG Wave 2.2 because PPG had said it would work with the Waveterm, and then when the Waveterm came out they'd made technical improvements and you needed a Wave 2.3 instead? No doubt that was annoying, and quite equivalent to finding something in software doesn't have a compatibility you'd maybe been led to believe it would have. Yes, it's annoying, but they got on with making music with what they had. They didn't stop using something that worked perfectly well on its own just because they were miffed that they couldn't do other stuff with it that they'd expected to be able to do.
Nothing is perfect, and you just make yourself miserable and achieve nothing if you focus on that. Today's software certainly isn't perfect, but it's quite amazing what's available to us now. The Arturia software isn't perfect. It may not always be playable in the way you want it to be, but it's definitely playable. And if you sit at a keyboard and hook up to a recording device like most people have always done in electronic music you can do quite amazing things with an Arturia synth. There will always be things you need to get round, problems that get in the way till you find a musical way to deal with them, and there will always be thoughts of `wouldn't it be nice if it did this....'
Arturia don't have unlimited resources. No company has that. Nor do they have any control over other other companies, whether they're Steinberg or Microsoft or whoever. It's the same for NI, or any other company. And so long as we use software we're going to have compatibility issues between what different companies make.
Now I'm going to leave this forum again and concentrate on making music, because that's far more valuable than reading complaints. I'll be using several instruments that allegedly don't work. But they do.
