In the new MixConsol we perceive very badly ON / OFF buttons

In the new MixConsol we perceive very badly ON / OFF buttons for PRE, INSERTS, etc… They are very small, without any distinctive sign, and pale green OFF is not enough contrast between the pale blue ON. Since this is the only occurrence of these functions should see it!

In addition, color preferences related to rack does not change anything. I put bright red, but it applies only in the dropdown at the top, not the console itself.

As I’ve said elsewhere on this forum, the new Mix Console has advantages in large numbers, but Steinberg went too fast on the interface! :confused:

The mixer is very fiddly and hard to see on our laptop screen.

Action please. :neutral_face: :bulb:

I would like to make an important comment.

I had a long discussion with Avid Sibelius on the Sibelius forum about the Sibelius 7 interface, which brought a big change. So existing staff heard the criticism in two ways: positive reviews reassured in his decision to change. negative reviews were seen as resistance to old habits. However, it lacked a third way: reasonable criticism and true points! I do not know yet well Steinberg, but I hope that specialists have a true listen. Software is not for specialists. It to the users. Experts invent and monitor the consistency with technical guidance and a market. The user, USES. They eat every day the Chief meal. He knows what it tastes like, beyond the theory. Everything he says is not 100% accurate. But he does not speak for nothing.

On the issue of the MixConsol, Steinberg specialists have followed a path from an ‘idée fixe’. For this small ‘revolution’, they have abandoned Visual aspects, a graphic code, well anchored links and references, internal coherence which were already tight in Cubase-Nuendo, built step by step, year after year. Today, they make a synthesis with the new features and the proven interface of Cubase and Nuendo.

I do not know how my text looks in English translation (I try, I try…), but I hope that the central idea is expressed approximately. This is.

all true…
there are lot of topics(good and bad) about the new mixconsole… while changes are welcome(and takes time to accommodate for big changes) i think mainly the graphics of MC should be much improved in general.
if its colors,contrast,good separation of channels,clear fonts and numbers,etc…hope steinberg read those “issues” and really considering more options for user customization, improvements and changes if needed for MC !
as some of us using it for more than 1 month now and still have hard time with it.

I had to click them on and off several times and then resort to listening which was the ON state to be sure which dull pastel colour motif was on. Maybe I’m a little colour blind but I think an ON lamp should glow, not have you checking the fuse or rummaging around for your decoder ring.

This is exactly what I do myself. I don’t know if the button says yes or no! With experience and a lot of understanding, it is placed. But you have to look twice, or three. On 10 years of work, it is the equivalent of the holiday! Please Steinberg, have tested your interface by average humans. Especially since this button does not appear on control (such as Euphonix) surface.

If we were in the mix, it’s a little like place a beautiful sound, but a superb sound that nobody does! And only once…


Conclusion: grow and develop strong color the ON / OFF. + If possible, give another instance of this signal in the project window.

+1 I think the old VST5 button ‘lighting up’ method looked most obvious. The general Grey/white buttons confuse me because they don’t look like they’re lit up nor do they look like it’s a ‘pressed’ button, so I continually don’t get it. As for hiding things until you hover, please just show them at all times Steinberg.

What also still confuses me, is the inconsistent mousewheel - panner correlation for MIDI Tracks on the one hand and Audio & Instrument Tracks on the other hand. :confused:
It has been built in intentionally, and that’s why I made a poll in another topic:

I have to admit, I may have been too quick to agree. You get used to things a certain way. Seems that rather than the tree lighting up when you plug it in, the rest of the forest does in this case, but not so brightly that it scares away all the other inserts. I don’t actually mind it now.
