What sort of feedback should we be giving? How detailed? I really want to see devs in the forums more and able to talk to them directly… There really isn’t so many of us that it would be hard to handle and I think Steinberg does need to diversify their beta tester pool because they do make changes without realizing how some people work.
The colour tool for instance I will give example:
I was working on a snare sample “project” in Cubase, in which I was also testing my hardware processors and creating additional samples based off the one - excessive compression settings and eq settings to see what ‘useable’ mixing effects I could obtain. Anyways, as one can imagine - I ended up with ALOT of printed events that I organized into folders and subfolders and subfolders and I also used colour coding to visually group external hardware process batch revisions, similar settings, favorite picks, etc, etc.
The colour tool was actually indispensable in this work flow and this is why - I would reuse a lot of the same colours, and nothing was quicker than hotkey selecting the colour tool, alt modifier to sample a colour on another event, and then reapply it to another or multiple events. Each time I want to do this now, I have to open the colour menu.
I would imagine, anyone else who has projects or jobs with a very high number of separate events (even more than pop production) that are systemically organized, would also use the colour tool this way. It’s even difficult figure out exactly which colour I used previously as some are %15 shades of similar colour. Film/Postproduction, sample creating, audio forensics, commercial audio applications like cell phone soundbanks, etc, etc, I would imagine would all have a use for this tool.
So this change actually detrimentally slowed down this workflow.
