As soon as I figured out I could open C10 CPRs in 9.5? It was a done deal. Ever since I got C10 I’ve -really- tried to like it. But this is the first upgrade since SX3 that I find intolerable (SX3 had serious stability issues. CPRs would simply vanish!)
This is about workflow. I am simply fed up with how much -slower- I work in C10. The right click business—which seems so trite? Is driving me NUTS. I’m sure many wags will say, “Don’t let the door hit ya in the ass on the way out!”
But at some point, SB has gotta wake up and smell the coffee—just as Wavelab (finally) did last year. The UX on BOTH products had been getting progressively harder and harder to use over the past several years with LOTS of missteps that made the programs unnecessarily fiddly. Fortunately, PG responded to howls from users and revamped WL in 2017 and now Wavelab is again my absolute fave program to use. My wish is that SB does this same with C10.5 because this is DEATH BY A THOUSAND CUTS.
At some point, for me, it’s one too many little things that now add up to -way- too much wasted time. I actually started -fearing- doing certain editing tasks.
And if ANY experienced user–especially someone who works with MIDI and orchestrations a lot tells me they work faster in C10? Sorry mate, I hate to get ugly, but you sir, are not telling the truth. It’s. Just. Not. Possible.
In fact, what I -really- want to see, is the b-test team in action. I want to see a Youtube video of a guy doing MIDI orchestration work (as I do) in C10. Hell… -any- kind of fast editing work in the Key Editor. Because the thought that keeps going through my mind is: WHO DECIDED THESE CHANGES WERE A GOOD THING? EXPLAIN THIS TO ME. USE SIMPLE WORDS SO I CAN UNDERSTAND BECAUSE CLEARLY I’M TOO STUPID TO GET IT.
Adios for now. I’ll be interested to see if 10.1 or 10.5 improve.
PS: Frankly, if I could safely go back to C8, I’d probably do -that- too because of the Skinny Scroll Bars introduced in C9, but that’s risking too much.
