This is a formal complaint about the UI decissions in the new C7 - i find it only inches short of a disaster! Of course there is a lot of nice features with sorting, zones and such, but the actual visual presentation is very poorly executed imho. This is just off the top of my head after 30 minutes of usage …
When using multiple mixers in a dual monitor-setup, do we need transport controls on every mixer? It can of course be disabled in the window layout, but there is no way to reclaim the space taken up by the “top bar” … thats just silly!
Mandetory spacing beneath the channel-labels … why!?
A fat bar on every channel indicating PRE, ROUTING, ect … (badly centered) … why!? A label in the side plus a seperator line would be more than sufficiant.
‘Gain’ hidden far away … it should be on the front - or built into the fader (using alt-click)
Not possible to set a hotkey for the 4 different mixer-configurations? Or did i overlook something?
Fullscreen mode - great idea, but why only one mixer? Why not a layout with two or three mixers, so you could cram som information in there? … and while you’re at it, do fullscreen for the arranger as well!
Whos your chief of UI design, and where does he/she live? I wanna have a word …
