I’m sure it’s just the way the various visual preferences are set, but Cubase 8, without any tweaking of the display after install, is very hard on my eyes. I can’t seem to make it any better. I’m using two 42" monitors, so you wouldn’t think it would be an issue…But it is. I’d be curious as to what others are using as far as visual preferences. If anyone could upload or PM a template(s) for me to try on my system, I’d greatly appreciate it. My system:
Win 7 Pro 64
AMD Radeon HD 5750
Two 42" monitors (LG) running at 1920x1080
If it’s necessary for this conversation…i7, 32g of RAM
Primarily, the color scheme and trying to focus on the fonts is just hard on my eyes. I’ve always found Cubase to be a bit harder on the eyes than some other DAW’s I’ve used, but it seems to be worse with 8. That being said, even with the visuals, Cubase is still the best overall DAW I’ve worked with, and I’ve worked with darn near all of them.
Thanks in advance!
