A note on the “fuzziness” of the user interface.
This has – as far as I can tell - mostly to do with the way windows 7 implements anti-aliasing for fonts (which results in an awkward display of text in general; not just in Cubase).
There are some resources in the 'net how to get rid of this “feature” - I just stumbled over this blog (german), that explains how to switch of anti-aliasing in windows 7 altogether.
- Right-click on “Computer” => Properties
Advanced System Settings => “Advanced”-Tab => Performance => Settings
“Show edges of screen fonts” to OFF
Change system fonts:
- Right-click to the desktop => Personalize
Window Color => Advanced appearance settings…
Click on each element, set the font from “Segoe 9pt” to “Tahoma 8pt” (also I prefer “9pt” here).
You’re back to a much cleaner (non anti aliased) text display.
The only drawback here: the fonts in the score editor (the notation font) will suffer big time.
