Are you really looking that much on screen when adjusting Eq?
Well, yeah, I look at the screen because I’m constantly not sure which knob I’m grabbing. The lack of consistency is a concentration killer.
The build quality of the CC121 is excellent. But the two issues (lights being off on the controller and the eq knobs being in a different order than the software) are a big workflow impediment.
The real head scratcher is that the CC121 was designed exclusively to work with Cubase and Nuendo and somehow the product developer thought it made sense to REVERSE the order of the entire eq section! There is no way to put a good spin on this. I agree that the gain knobs are more handy on the bottom which is why I’ve repeatedly suggested that Cubase and Nuendo have an “eq knob preference” added in an upcoming software update. That way users could choose, the current software order or the CC121 order. Then everyone is happy!
