Why oh why oh why do approved methods always have to get disimproved nowadays? Cubase had the best organized DAW layout. All informations, controls and buttons at a single view, without looking crowded.
Now I see all these colorful 3D XXL plugin color bars everywhere, without carrying much info, without status controls and buttons, but with crude arranged, overlapping text elements. The beloved inspector now looks like new elements colliding with the existing ones. Also more clicking: double click to open plugin UI’s (!). Is this the new direction: bold, touch screen friendly elements? I have the strong feeling, this only is the beginning…
First Windows, now Cubase… anything has to become reduced and touch friendly… a touching future! Do we users really want this? Shouldn’t we separate desktop workhorses from touch apps?
What is your impression?
