For someone new stepping into cubase 7
, it's gonna be a good experience. For me, on Cubase since 3 sx, (now still on 5) 7 won't bring a lot of groundbreaking stuff. I've had the chance to be one of the few of us normal people to have thorough hands on experience with it, just a couple of days ago. I posted in this thread. Basically a lot gui tweaks and a lot of emphasis on steinbergs part on their own built in effects,... personally I don't use them at all, and will get rid of it as fast as possible. Im talking about their plugins and vsti's, and preset libraries of all kinds.
One thing they should have fixed lightyears ago, is the fact that one cannot scroll when different tabs are open in the inspector lane, it is just stuck and you need a lot of vertical real estate on your screen to scroll to everything.
Also i need access to INSERTS and SENDS on ALL channels AT THE SAME TIME. Only way to do this is through the mixview, while I need it on my project view, like in pro tools, where you'd have access to inserts and sends at the left of every track. This, to this day, is a work flow killer in my perspective.
