I’m having some workflow problems since 10.
Due to the new graphic design I’m afraid.
The “having to disable / hide bits from the transport panel in order to make it fit” is a workflow killer. Why doesn’t it auto-resize into multiple rows, or rescale automaticly, whatever.
The “old” F2 Transport was easier to work with, looked better, and was more compact. Bring it back as an option please?
Same issue with the new toolboxes on the mixer and arrange window; (apart from to many confusing lookalike icons and symbols I can not get used to, but hey I can hoover!)
These should resize to multiple rows automaticly if needed, and also be saved/recalled with workspaces so you can create and recal different toolbar presets for mixing,editing in your workspaces.
Same goes for the design of the track name and buttons field. I have to adjust the with manualy to make things fit? and save presets? Ok…But hey, the size is not saved in the preset? really?
One more: activate “show part borders” in any editor and you cannot acces the timeline underneath the naming field anymore…
Some other things that seem weird to me, I don’t get the concept behind this;
Preset management: I create a sound on a mixerchannel, using inserts, aux sends and fader levels and save it as a preset. If I recall this preset, even in the same project, all aux settings and fader levels are gone. WHY? How am I supposed to recreate a sound if this is all missing?
If I create a multi-output VSTi (grooveagent SE?), add some plugins on the mixerchannels, set propper fader and aux levels, then save this VSTI as a userpreset, it is corrupted on recal. The extra outputs, inserts, aux levels are gone and the internal mixer looks corrupted.
“File>Export track” is a fix for both these problems, but the disadvantage of this way of working is that you wil have to build your own archive somewhere, also importing tracks is not as easily done as recalling a preset on a channel or vsti.
By the way, did you notice that Cubase is starting to look like the new Facebook layout, or is it the the other way around?
Anyway, hope this gets some attention and gets fixed.
