MixConsole Contrast and coloring ability update + 19487912874120481
Of course I've been ranting about that since the mixconsole appeared. I'm not hopeful. I've played the "please identify the selected column" game.
I've pointed out how unreadable it is compared to the old mixer, which had clear delineation. Not to mention ruining the Control Room to what is now a Rubik's Cube of tabs and settings, that hide the audio flow that used to be the center of what it is for, toss in the unreadable Channel Strip and it makes what could have been a great redesign fall flat IMO.
The old CR Design was self-explanatory. I don't understand why there was a need to redesign it. Only for redisign sake in order to cram everything into one channel strip?
The cursor in earlier CB Versions changed color according to background. Now the color is hard-coded but the cursor is three times as wide as before. Because you need white outlines in order to see the cursor while hovering above a selected event (which turns black)

And that's the same thing like many other design "enhancements" mentioned in this post.
Why? I don't understand why Steinberg keeps doing that.

Fully agree. Everything!
Cubase GUI is very inconsistent.
Which is not only the issue of taste.
It is hard on eyes and makes the work flow less intuitive.
+1000000..
Not only the GUI. Lot of other functions is also inconsistent regarding key commands and accessibility though midi and hardware controllers.

Totally Agree. +1000.
Usability failure is an disease that seems to have infected just about every UI on the planet at this point.
For the love of all that is holy, let there be a return to proper UI design principles!

C6 is best GUI.
Agreed, everything seemed to lose coherence after that..
