At the risk of putting myself out on a limb here, I dare say that Retrologue is on par with current state-of-the-art VA synths (U-he Diva and Arturia SEM V, for instance). Of course, I have just begun scratching the surface of Retrologue but so far, I am really impressed.

Cheers,

Jack

To supplement this new release...

Just wanted to mention that I'll be putting out a new Cubase shortcut sticker set within 3 weeks. Could be a great addition to the 6.5 update




We haven't got our hands on the new version, so if there are differences please let us know. We are aware of the new Comp tool. Does this have a new dedicated key? Of course you can always re-map.... But suggestions or comments would be appreciated. Hell, who wants a GS discount?

As per my previous post and in agreement with the above, Retrologue is absolutely fantastic. It sounds incredible!!!

Worth the update price on its own.

I'd say it's the best analog emulation I've heard.

Please bear in mind, earlier on this thread I was bitching about this being a paid update.

Great idea! Count me in. Is it possible to get them without the key letters on them for those of us who customize our key commands?

Stickers without letters...

Thanks for the interest! We've been thinking about a version without the key letters for people who want to customize the shortcut locations. Two issues:

1) Color layout would no longer separate certain functions (though we do have a black and white version)

2) People will not know what keyboard key they are pressing.

Do you think most people know the keyboard layout anyways and won't need the letters on the stickers? We could do a limited run of these but for just a few people is not worth it. Please, let us know what you all think

Yeap,and I would also add DCAM on your list.
Very similar sounding. Nice stuff.

I second this.
It's actually really great.
Also, the comping feature has been improved and updated. It hasn't just been put back to v5.
The warping feature being available directly in the quantize tool is pretty sweet, if the hitpoint detection algorithm was as good as beatdetective in PT then that would be great, but it's still very very good.
I'd say if your a pro then this is a decent paid update.

I'm satisfied with the update over here. I figured that these features would be in C7 at some point and that the upgrade price from 6.5 to 7 would be less than going from C6-7.

Since that seems to be the case, I can "prepay" and learn to use some of the new features instead trying them all at once in a year or whenever C7 rolls out.

I'm finding Retrologue to be a good way to learn about programming synths. Sounds pretty good too.

I was a little iffy about the paid update, but having upgraded for $149 last year, I can live with it.

Great idea but I have to tell you, having a Mackie Controllet with over 25 custom buttons is just the best without going to a much more expensive SSL

There are certainly other options besides stickers, but none of them cost less than $10. Ours do.

Just offering an alternative for those that want it

not that cubase wasnt stable but the money they want for it and for the upgrades is crazy in the current market of 200$ for logic , 60$ for reaper .

Hopfully those will appear in C7, along with some built in non linear summing feature!

Nice update.
Retrologue is the first Steinberg Synth I really like and it's on par or better than other synth like Sylenth etc.
Padshop is very interesting too, needs a bit more time to find out how it works but it's worth the time.
Both synth have support for Note Expressions and this is a very handy thing.

A small screenvideo I made about using Retrologue and Note Expressions


Flac and Soundcloud support is great. I think Soundcloud could be a bit more improved to have it integrated in the Mediabay for browsing and download.
Not bad the new comping tool.

Some small improvements in the audio editor with Vari Audio (snapping to grid)... I don't use it very often but works great.

50€ is a no brainer. Yes it's a small update but the next big update will be IMO 2013 with Cubase 7.
There will be also the free update to 6.0.6 announced for next week which brings some small things like Rewire 64Bit. So good things also for users which are not interested for the 6.5

I like this update. Good work Steinberg!

Have to agree - been bitching about it earlier but it is a great update. The comping tool improvements alone are worth it. It makes my life soooo easier.
And the retrologue is a nice bonus. Really good sounding and I like the easy layout.

Just got the update downloaded and opened...

So far (5 min):

Synths sound great (although admittedly I do not use them as often as some of you will), and the AmpRack is a decent upgrade... but again, only use it for scratch tracks (even then there are better freeware amps to use like LePou).

Have not tried the editing/comp improvements yet, but I will probably use those most. Definitely interested in these improvements.

Bottom line, I look at this as a "pre-pay" for 7 in a sense, if that is in fact what happens. If there is no break for a 6.5 to 7 update, then I am a dummy!!



However, it was $49.99 and I think it was totally worth it, synths alone.

Finally a good sounding soft synth with full midi note vst expression (matrix of retrologue even offers source 3 to 8 as vst expression source

It is a pretty powerful beast and I like the sound as well.
Looking forward to play chords and play with pitch expression on individual midi events

I am using the Protools stickers and really need the letters on the keyboard. Its pretty easy to get offset because the stickers change the touch slightly, so having the letters is essential, for me anyway.
