I'm quickly realizing that "a bug" (the modern definition) is pretty much ... "anything that doesn't work the way I think it should work." I suppose Webster's will update at some point.

That better understanding may help me to better integrate into this new society.

If it's reproducible and undesired, it's a bug.

I'd personally disagree, but that's the "new understanding" i was talking about above.

To me a "bug" in software is something doing something other than it was written or intended to do. I mean... it's reproducible that some things don't undo and it's undesirable to some that it doesn't undo those things, but that's not a bug. It can't be because it was never supposed to actually do that.

But hey ... when in Rome.

I'm learning.

This would explain why it take certain companies much longer to actually recognize and then fix bugs.

"The sun is 98 degrees outside and it's getting hot" > well it could be cold, if your used to living in Iraq. :/ geez

Maybe Presonus should just release a statement like so, " here's the product, it is what it is, if you don't like it, bitch all you want,but we don't see your problem as a need to fix anything, we're gonna do what we want regardless'.

Perhaps that'll shut people up once and for good.

Personally I find it amusing..

i would like to ask about the saving and auto save. is this a fix for the auto save pulling focus? as in when it saves it brings its attention to the auto save and distracts you from what your doing. is that fixed with the new ara coding?

It looks like we all have slightly different ideas of what a bug is. You know, the line between an issue and a bug is very thin sometimes...

Anyway, bugs are "normal" in a complex software. What I would improve is the way they are collected and acknowledged. It's quite common that somebody finds something strange, makes a thread in this post, the issue is confirmed by other people but nobody knows if someone at Presonus has acknowledged the issue or if they will work on that. Who knows? You need just to wait for the next update and hope...

I don't personally like this approach. In this way you are forced to bump the thread from time to time just to hope it will be read by somebody at Presonus. How many bumps have we seen for S1 issues?

In the Cubase forum, for example, confirmed bugs are officially acknowledged by Steinberg people (who try to reproduce them) and put in a dedicated section of the forum. So in this case you know that they will work on that particular bug and sooner or later will be fixed.

Amen.

We're prone to saying ... "All software have bugs.".... when that's actually not true. What's true is that as software becomes more and more complex the opportunities for bugs increases greatly and it's near impossible to look ahead and predict every potential circumstance or interaction unless operational parameters and functions are very, very narrow.

Software with much more narrow parameters need not have a single bug ... see your OS calculator.

But in this context no doubt, complex consumer software like digital audio workstations are almost never (if ever) completely bug free. If there is one out there that is, it doesn't do very much.

I agree with you 100% that a system for collecting and confirming bugs by the developers would be great.
