I have some gripes!
What were they thinking when they decided to change the look of the waveforms. Their washed out and really difficult to see any details such as Esses when DeEssing. Then the volume box in the centre top is really difficult to see where it is. The overlapping of parts is not obvious from a glance and its also exremely difficult to see if you have crossfades in between audio regions. I feel its SUCH a vast dissimprovement to the look and feel of waveforms in Cubase 5
I also remember a lot of people who were with me in asking for a much better way to see the difference between Audio and Stereo tracks when your creating multiple files. (E.G. Stereo Acoustic Guitar track and an Acoustic DI mono, and then multiple versions of this is difficult to see at a glance which track is the Stereo and Which is the mono). In C5 Mono and Stereo were watermarked into the track but I again found it dark and not as obvious as it could be… so what have they done? … REMOVED the text for mono and stereo and put a tiny dot for mono and two tiny dots for Stereo…come on!
Then they remove the feature where you could assign a new colour to a track by clicking the colour bar to the right of the track as was in C5… why?
Most forum users wanted the mixer to be colourable like you can in protools for easy navigation of large mixes… not done
The designer decides to put a space taking bar across the top of the screen that tells you the current audio format and how much recording time is left. There was nothing wrong with where this was in C5 down at the bottom of the track list… why move it right into eyeline? Its not important enough in my opinion. And as far as I’m aware it can’t be hidden unless I"m corrected here.
Multiple other good features things removed from C5 why?
C6 takes a lot longer to load than C5 and seems to eat up a lot more memory. To the point where its unstable with a lot of my current projects where memory consumption was riding high but C5 will deal with them ok
Why oh why is there so much time and resources invested into re-inventing the User Interface every time theres a release?
