EDIT: Please scroll down for a better description incl pictures! EDIT
I am quite happy with N5.5 - though a lot of C6 event-color scheme is used (maybe this was already there in N5) - for example I don’t like the gray wave-forms - I would like to have solid black - and I dislike the crosshatching in case of overlapping (in audio-projects I usually have 90% of the stuff stacked on top of each other / overlapping, so here it just looks cheap and stupid…)
Ok - but that is all just design. My problem (and what caused me to stop using C6) is:
If I have overlapping events (for example multiple takes of drums) - usually they are scaled - that means:
Take 1 starts alone and ends (somewhere) below Take 2… I edit the beginning of take 2 so that Take 2 maybe starts with the first kickdrum in bar 3.
Now I decide to grab Take 1 and move a little. Now the complete Take 1 (resp the events) are ON TOP. That means that Take 1 does not end “somewhere” below Take 2 anymore - instead of that Take 1 runs out till its end ON TOP of take 2 - and my edit is broken as well as outtake-material is on top now.
How can I avoid this? Something like that seriously messes with ALL of the editing. Without a solution I can’t do any editing in the moment and I have to go back to Cubase 5.5 in the moment…
