But i really like the looks of the new mixer, the window where you can choose what channels to see in the mixer is one of the two things i really wanted to see. That and sidechaining with non-Steinberg plugins. At least they added some new plugins, but still, I can't believe that they didn't add proper sidechaining.
If your using the full Cubase you can side-chain with non VST3 plug-ins. It's a little bit of a work-around though.
There are also many very good VST3 plug-ins for side-chaining,
All softube Compressors
Yamaha vintage 260 compressor and Portico
There's probably more.
I use Artist so I can only side-chain with VST3 compressors, there is no work-around. However, the compressors in the channel strip all have SC which is very convenient. If they are good It may make life simpler.
