On my laptop and my workstation, first of all, cubase preset browsing, along with preset browsing in other Steinberg products, like Groove Agent, and Halion, is incredibly complex and confusing. Now the features in there are very useful, as well.
The first thing that’s been hard for me to wrap my head around is that the preset browser has one mode, at least, and perhaps its most common or default mode, which flattens everything out.
There is, when saving presets, the ability to create and view folders, and the save preset view (in any place in cubase, or groove agent, or halion) where presets are saved, we can see folders. But there are no folders at all visible in the load preset viewer. (Perhaps there is a way to get to that mode, perhaps a 4 by 4 pixel icon somewhere hiding in plain sight).
It was even a highly lauded upgrade that Cubase 10 and 10.5 and Groove Agent 5, and Halion 6, can handle high dpi screens, and can handle various resolutions, but these dialogs remain coded for 1990s era pixel densities, when a 4 x 4 pixel icon could be considered large and friendly sized.
Perhaps in the box, along with an Elicenser, Steinberg could include a magnifying glass and a glossary of tiny pixelated icons that they use in their preset browsing, and elsewhere in the app.
Every other DAW I have used is LESS POWERFUL than Cubase, and that’s why I stay with CUBASE. But none is as fearsomely bad at UI as Cubase.
