I notice again (like in Cubase 10) that the newly introduced contrasts in menu interfaces and icons are simply not eye-friendly.
This unnecessarily strains the eyes and simply nerves at work.
It was good as it was in Nuendo 8.3 and I hope that Steinberg would leave it at the premium product with the good ergonomics, but unfortunately not.
You don’t have to break good and mature things just for the sake of change ?!
We all know in IT that screen work is exhausting for the eyes.
Does none of your developers / product managers have a healthy feeling for ergonomics anymore ?
Please undo or at least make it switchable, then everyone can load his hip “skin” if he has other/strange views on this topic.
An example where you can see this very well: Steinberg Hub.
Nuendo 8.3: Black writing on a light background is much more eye friendly and easier to read.
Nuendo 10: Bright writing on a dark background results in a very unergonomic and eye-unfriendly contrast.
The icon bar was also more eye-friendly to read before than now with these crass bright/dark contrasts.
Too bad, according to Steinberg Support it can’t be changed.
But then Nuendo doesn’t make sense to me either. Then I’d rather stay with Cubase 9.5 and wait until that changes again.
During that time, potentially years who knows, I won’t be able to buy product upgrades :-/
Among other things, I was looking forward to ARA, it’s very frustrating that these GUI changes now block me for getting ARA support.
Now I had sadly to cancel the crossgrade from Cubase 9.5 to Nuendo (as I had to do before with Cubase 10).
And now I’m stuck at Cubase 9.5 :-/ Potentially for years until it changes back or never …
It’s unbelieveable that a “professional” company like Steinberg makes such drastic and unnecessary changes to their software.
I am obviously very dissatisfied and frustrated with this direction as I upgraded this product since Cubase version 1 and feel kind of lost now as all upgrade paths are blocked for me now by this.
