I actually think I could get used to using the new mixer if some contrast was added and all those functional problems were dealt with.

However dark Cubase 7 seems, it's not as dark as Ableton Live 9! I have the light version (came free with M-Audio Oxygen 49 keyboard) and it really is a dull, gray experience, which is why I love Cubase!

Yeah, real tough having to use that grey matter, isn't it? The problems of the world are being caused by people who don't think enough. Maybe you should *think* about that.

If I recall correctly, Stockholm Syndrome is defined as a mental state where someone feels intense love for someone who is abusive towards them. I'm not sure what city they used to describe a mental state where someone feels immense affection for someone who is sublimely indifferent to them -- :lol: :lol:

Not nitpicking here, Doug, but Stockholm Syndrome is a mental state whereby in a hostage situation the hostage begins to empathise/sympathise with the views of the hostage taker.

You got the gist of it right ;) !
