I have recently updated my Nuendo and Cubase licenses to the latest versions and would like to point out some concerns.
I have been professional using Nuendo since before ver 2 and am glad to see that you have implemented editing features and support that have been only
possible in a crude way since version 2. That along with the improved export options and fixing the bugs with running those old Cube tech rebadged plug-ins have added things I have been wishing
for and working around since way back. Bravo, in that sense this is probably the strongest version yet, taken in context.
The major problems seems to be the GUI styling. It is surprising that it bothers me so bad since I really don’t care how it looks ,but some of the esthetic changes are SO bad that they infringe on the
functionality of the program, mainly the editing of audio events.
I would comment and HIGHLY suggest the ability to give the option in the preference menu to go back to the audio event display characteristics of Nuendo and Cubase 4.
So that you namely have the the ability in BOTH programs to:
Have solid black wave forms on audio events
outline audio events red upon selection. ( NOT invert to negative image; who ever thought of that must have been smoking crack)
the ability to have solid colored event backgrounds
THE MOST IMPORTANT… NO CROSS-HATCHING ON AUDIO EVENT OVER-LAPPING!!! This is the single worst idea of any DAW, any version. I would rather throw myself in a river with a couple of 192’s strapped to my ankles then stare at what can only be described as a “construction zone malfunction” for hours on end. I can not adequately describe how terribly cluttering and non-funtional this is…
PLEASE GIVE US THE OPTION TO CHANGE IT. PLEASE!
I say this adamantly.
