I was excited about the possibilities for the new, scale-able mixer section. I work with just one monitor and am always struggling to fit everything on one monitor for this program. Not having a dedicated meter bridge (that isn’t tied to channels) forced me to start using the meter bridge that comes with my RME card. It’s compact and accurate.
C7 is scale-able, but for me, in the wrong direction.
If there is still a way to make the channels in the mixer narrow, I can’t find it. So, now the mixer is actually a bit LESS functional for me. What I would love is an independent meter bridge that doesn’t have the fader attached at the bottom of it. Is this possible in C7. And now the channels are a little fatter than they were before and appear to have no way to switch them to a narrow view. The buttons above and below the fader are fat enough that you could make it half as narrow (as it was in previous versions) and still have a large enough button to see.
The other thing that I noticed is that I don’t seem to be able to customize the channel settings window like I used to. I do not use the channel eq and that section of the window takes up the most space. Is there a way to hide that like before? If there is, I couldn’t find it.
C7 is kind of forcing me to consider a larger or second monitor. Not what I’d rather spend extra $$ on (let alone find room for it here in my studio.
On the positive side, it sounds like they have also worked on making this already stable software even more stable. I’m all for that.
I haven’t had time yet but I’m looking forward to exploring some of the new features.
