We really need something like PT's Import Session Data. Requested for "years".
I had high hopes to receive something like that with N6... instead of that we now have a total new GUI which nobody or at least very few of us really likes.. regarding all the other features I have all I need.
Just that damn session data thing..
As I said:
Setting up "fresh" songs is easy, there are countless ways.
Exchanging some settings via presets or "mixer settings" files later is ok.
But importing settings to an active session without the need to save, close, open another session, store presets and stuff, discard changes, close, reopen current session, import stuff, realize that you have forgotten something important... This is almost impossible without frustration.
Agree on all points.
The new control room - What are/were they thinking (close to useless in a full band recording scenario).
The new mixer - Nah, frustrating at best (some good ideas, but to much clicking, jumping and focusing around). Difficult to act without "thinking" (where are the foucus, where do I click etc), destroying the creative flow.
It would have been great if Steinberg gave us features we asked for, not to "revolutionalize" things we never asked for (things that are working well).
Needless to say, I have held back my N6 update (working happily with Nuendo 5.5 and C6.5).
We want some kind of Import Session Data ASAP.
