I have been not liking the Purple Cycle button for many years, since version 5. Can Cubase engineers please change this to a blue color, or something more attractive? Or, can we please have the option to change the cycle button color to a different hue?
Red for record makes sense. All will agree. Green for play, also great choice. The other grey buttons with little black symbols are fine. A better default option for the “cycle” button, however, would maybe be yellow or orange. Purple looks “nasty” inside the cubase 8 interface.
Speaking of interface looks, can Steinberg/Yamaha please consider hiring a highly respected visual design firm to redesign the Cubase 8 interface so that it really looks professional? The interface is serious getting behind the times visually. Most of my plugins look cleaner and more professional then the Cubase 8 interface.
Design firms to consider: BemisBalkind, BBDO, Face, Landor Associates, Neve, and countless others including many in Japan and Germany.
Rupert Neve may seem like an unusual choice, but he is still alive, very brilliant, and knows a thing or two about console design. Steinberg should serious consider working with this kind of expertise. Please.
