Thanks Mathias! I was just about to ask if a 9.0xx would still come (like previous years) et voila! I am assuming this is the last update to the 9.0 line. Installing now!
Have a great weekend (almost)

Updates are always welcome but still no enhanced Eucon integration to avid artist mix and control.

Come on guys. Please do,something here, at least have the mix console mirror it's state onto the artist/control so all the hidden channels disappear and leave just the visible mic console channels displayed, it's such a hassle banking back and fore through pages to locate channels which could anywhere on a large template.

There's been no real advances on Eucontrol integration for a long time and it's really really disappointing to customers who use them all day and everyday.

Can Mathias comment on this lack of foresight and interest from SB to the many people who use them please?

Maybe this time a response will be forthcoming.....

Yes, the last update for each Cubase version (x.x.40, sometimes x.x.50) usually only includes bug fixes back-ported from the current version, in this case Cubase 9.5. This is done more or less as a favor for those who haven't had the chance to upgrade yet. Don't expect new features.

Not sure what you mean? The artist surfaces do follow the mixer.
The track classes are determined by what track classes you enable in the EUCON PANEL in Cubase.
both are overridden by locked channels in EUcontrol.
Above 2 choices determine what you see on the artist surface.

He means.... When you hide a track in Cubase, it should also be hidden on the control surface. I agree 1,000%. I've seen a Steinberg employee say that they had this functionality working a couple of years ago but it has never materialised. There has been no Eucon development for years at Steinberg and it's quite frustrating.

Yes, your right @J-S-Q, the post was a bit confusing so just rectified some typos and mistakes!

Interested to hear how people are getting on with 9.0.40. I'm really waiting for a fix on CAN-13042 (which I guess will not happen in 9.0.x as this is the final update but in 9.5.x) viewtopic.php?f=253&t=123873&sid=6b6e6f ... f22182063e but will shortly be migrating to a new computer so checking if this is a stable update for people.

Any feedback? Is the 9.0.40 update safe to install? Any problems for the people that did install it?

Many thanks

There are no answers from support on this questions.
Guys! New update don't fix this problem!!! What's going on? I cant use cubase for mixing!! Steinberg, why are you not fixing it??

It's being "fixed" in Cubase 9.5. Each free update for it is allowing you to load more and more plugins, and Cubase 9.5.20 can load more plugins than Cubase 9.

Steinberg can't "fix" this because this is a Windows issue, by making these changes they can only allow you to load more plugins.

9.5 is not free actually.
Looks like you're trying to sale me new 100$ update.
What does it means? more plugins. How much more? 5..10.. 50..100?
Why steinberg can not cooperate with microsoft to solve this problem totally?
Why It's being "fixed" in Cubase 9.0 ?

Each free update for Cubase 9.5. I never said that Cubase 9.5 was free. Please read more carefully.

Cubase 9.5 is 50 bucks, not 100.

This has been discussed to death already. It's very unlikely that Microsoft will do anything about the plugin limit just because of DAWs.

Increasing the number of plugins that can be loaded requires changes to basically every single component in Cubase. That's why they're rolling it out slowly with each 9.5 update to make sure that nothing is broken in the process. It's not practical to make these changes to Cubase 9 too, because there's a big risk that it would become completely unstable.

UAD plugins work fine in any version of Cubase 9 or 9.5, you just have to use a reasonable number of completely different plugins. You can use the UAD 1176 in every track if you want, but if you use a different compressor and EQ in every track, you're going to hit the .dll limit. It's also bad mixing practice. :?

Yeah , It's very unusable to aplly different plugins just because of this issue.
Thanks for answers, that issue only in Win 10? Can I install Win 8 for example to solve it?

Where are the updates on 9.0 version? Cubase 9.0.40 still has unpleasant bugs.
