Been working in it about 5-6 hours a day for the last 3 days. I’m not a pro, so I don’t use every single feature, never did. Just what I need for mixing and editing and with that I’m sure I already tried pretty much everything I ever used in C5.
I love every second in it.
Hated the floating F2 panel in C5, it was always in the wrong place or missing (if I turned it off), it was probably the most annoying stupid thing ever until I learned to just leave it parked at the bottom of the screen where C10 panel is… but even then sometimes C5 would open a project and the panel would be gone or obscured by a edit window twice the size (for some reason) of my desktop or something. Now that it’s fixed it’s one of my favorite features of C10!
I love the scale of things. I can see so much more on the screen (C5 had things way too large I realize now). C5 felt like a song before it is mixed. C10 feels like a song mixed by CLA. So tight and balanced.
I like the black background. But that also works for me because I usually mix in a dark room, I find it somehow easier on the eyes, calmer.
I was hesitant to upgrade since C5 worked fine for me… with the sale going on I decided why not. I’m so surprised how much progress Cubase had in 10 years in little areas. I honestly thought it’d be about the same as C5 just different graphics.
I see so much aggression towards developers from some users “This is wrong because I don’t like it!!!” type of posts. It must be hard for any developer to make decisions when there are 5 loud users who like things the old way and make 5000 posts complaining about it and 200 quiet users who welcome changes but never post about it at all, so I thought I’d say something.
