As a veteran Cubase user I was lost when first opening the mixer. Ill have to watch a bunch of videos to get up to speed.
Thanks shanabit, I've been using Cubase since VST/32 and that public beta cycle fun. So, I'm used to 0 release issues.
I'm not so much lost as irritated with how much clicking you have to do. You have to flip tabs and click your brains out to do even elementary things. I hate using a mouse needlessly. It slows things down to a crawl. And hurts my hands
I always play with new releases, I have for years. It's your only chance to get an opinion in before the next cycle begins. And, it's how you learn the system before using it to work.
Interestly, Steinberg have stated that "they listed to user feedback", when actually it seems like they ignored users completely other than a generic "fix the outdated mixer". That isn't listening to users.
Just so you know where I'm coming from, I actually love the project window, the midi editor and the sample editor. They are the best consolidated and logically laid out set of tools when taken singularly. They are simply spectacular when taken by themselves. The problem with Cubase has always how shitty that stuff works as a hole.
Anyhow, I'm just a mouse click hater and C7 requires mouse clicking out the wazoo to get to options that used to be available directly via key command or at least exposed in the common interface, not buried in a tab or dialog. That's all I'm really on about.
I think it's fair that people know that if they don't like using the mouse, they may not want to upgrade.
