Padshop 2

Post by telecode »

I am confused by the new Cubase 10.5

Does Padshop 2 replace Padshop Pro or will there be some sort of Padshop Pro 2 that we need to upgrade to? Or do we automatically get Padshop Pro 2 if we have Padshop Pro 1??

i am speculating but from the website it sounds like they are doing away with the pro version because on the new features it says this "Importing your own samples — a feature previously only available in Padshop Pro — is now accessible to everyone." and i can also upgrade from padshop pro to v2 for 30 dollars

It does kind of mean that those who bought Pro end up paying for it twice, though I admit it is not that straight forward as there are additional features in Padshop 2. It might have been more forward-looking to have built this functionality into the sampler track in any event.

Yes, interesting question: I have on my eLicenser a "Padshop Pro Extension" which I remember paying for, and which made the "built-in" Padshop in Cubase into Padshop Pro, which exists as a plugin only (no standalone version). If I buy the update from Padshop Pro, do I end up with a standalone license for P2 that I can move to another USB eLicenser, and then by upgrading to Cubase Pro/Artist 10.5, get another license for P2?

Very ambiguous system.

i just read the news page and it says the update wont work for built in padshop

https://www.steinberg.net/en/newsandeve ... -5312.html

"It may be important to note that the available update to Padshop 2 is incompatible with the Padshop included in Cubase. For all of you running Cubase Pro and Artist: we recommend updating to the Cubase 10.5 to use Padshop 2."

You should have read this: https://new.steinberg.net/de/cubase/compare-editions/

Obviously, Padshop 2 is a part of Cubase 10.5.

Now, i'm just wondering for who the upgrade option is... for people who don't own Cubase, but still own a Padshop Pro license? For people with an older Cubase, but, Padshop 2 won't work on those? Puzzled...

fwiw, i didn't have to run any additional padshop upgrade installer(s). the installation of cubase 10.5 automatically upgraded padshop on my setup.

Nothing really, Padshop 2 - now the only version, there is no Pro anymore - is included in Cubase 10.5 Pro. Ask them for a refund, maybe. That update is only useful for owners of non-Pro versions of Cubase.

As Cubase Pro users, if we'd waited long enough, we wouldn't have had to pay for Pro.

I've just bought the Cubase 10.5 (from 10) and Padshop 2 update. After installing 10.5 I ran the Padshop 2 update installer only to be told it was already installed. I am confused as to what I got for my £25 update fee,

I smell a rat!
I did the same thing. Did I just get duped out of $30?

I fear there will soon be many like you. Steinberg should make the situation more clear. I myself almost fell into the (surely unintentional) trap, too.

I bought two PadShop Pro upgrades in the past, because I have multiple Nuendo and Cubase Pro licenses. It would be fair if Steinberg would give a little discount for upgrading to Cubase Pro 10.5 when there is an additional PadShop Pro license too.

If Steinberg & co read these forums, maybe for the people that already paid for a padshop pro licnese, they should give us a coupon for upgrade to Halion or Groove Agent full versions. (I would prefer Halion as I am a Maschine user and have all the drums I need ;-0)

* I never did understand why Halion full isn't included in Cubase Pro but Retrologue is.

Great to see a more improved padshop version . It sure got everything and I am very impressed. Only thing missing I wish it could read scala or tun files for even more microtuning expressions.

I was thinking of upgrading to Padshop 2 from Padshop Pro for use with Artist 9. That would be worth $29.99 to me.

However, reading above posts, maybe Padshop 2 is only compatible with Cubase Artist 10.5. Is this true??

if You feel you have been mislead you are within your rights to challenge it in order to get your money back

I don’t know about you but £25 is a a lot of money to me to pay for something I don’t need!

Good luck

Hi friends, as I have long-term issues with Padshop Pro (crashing all the time) in Cubase 10, even official support can´t help with it, I´m considering to upgrade to Padshop 2. I would appreciate if you could confirm that Padshop 2 is REALLY stabe in Cubase (10.5, evetually 10), I really don´t feel like spending another money for something that will crash again. Or maybe upgrade to Cubase 10.5 could help? I have many presets used in my projects, but it´s a nightmare to work with Padshop Pro flawlessly...
Thanks

BTW.. I still feel Steinberg/Yamaha screwed over people that owned a PadshopPro license and upgraded to Cubase Pro 10 where it basically swallowed that license into Cubase Pro.Totall BS move. I will remember than next time I have to decide into which ecosystem I will be buying into.
