Please go back to how Custom colors was in 9.1, The new color schemes are DARK, DARK and more DARK, there was more flexibility in Ver. 9.1
we cannot select lighter colors in 9.5 or even change the left side menus anymore,
ALL Colors are restricted when trying to customize , Are you aware of this ???
In Cubase 9 I could chose complimentary colors for different elements, like yellow and blue, or red and green. Cubase 9.5 restricts to an eye soaring monochrome. And the solution would be to simply leave Hue bar on top of the Brightness-Saturation square fields of all the elements, like it was in v.9.
Its not the monitor. Its the fact that in order to get a decent theme going, I have to invest time and effort exploring the color options, and I´m not willing to do it I would like Cubase to have theme color presets that I could just load and check out if I like, instead of spending hours fiddling with the settings to find out that I created a useless color set. Frustrating to say the least.
I also think it’s not the monitor, as I am not able to get any color scheme with light backgrounds. In cubase 9 this was just fine.
Especially the key editor now is very tiring on my not so good eyes, as I can not get enough contrast. This is the very first time I complain about any update, so for me this is serious.
I tried editing the xml file to change backgrounds, and I have the decimal color codes I want, but somehow it doesn’t change anything.
Then again, I think I shouldn’t be editing xml files for something as basic and essential as this…
Can you say HOT FIX? Sure, I knew you could, Schatziekins.
Seriously. This is the kind of bug that SB -used- to provide as a .003 or -whatever- back in the good ol’ days. Now? Admittedly the code is -mostly- better, but in their arrogance they simply refuse to fix these kinds of irritants that, while not exactly showstoppers are SERIOUSLY annoying.
Well, that depends on how ones sight is and photosensitivity. So Myself, I have a neurological issue that affects me via my eyes (easiest explanation).
I am sitting here trying to get a good balance on colours and intensities I need - and it’s really hard. I came over to Cubase because it is VERY configurable, just not here. So maybe you are wrong - maybe for some it IS or will be a showstopper.
So Steinberg: PLEASE ALLOW THE USER TO CHOOSE EXACTLY WHAT COLOURS WE NEED. (or tell me how to use the 10 digit colour values)
That’s how strongly I feel about this, as a disabled user.
I have just upgraded to 9.5. I just hate these colors. Very difficult to work with. I use Wavelab 9.5 and that has a light theme that is very good. There doesn’t seem to b much flexibility. Hope they fix it soon.
