That would be a big NO ...
it still doesn't save properly with workspaces (zoom + config)
it still has to have focus to use many mixconsole keycommands
it still loses focus if you use functions of the mixconsole itself
Mute/Mono/Solo don't activate/deactivate all the time
QLink doesn't work properly when soloing/muting... (probably associated somehow with the direct mute/solo bug)
it still doesn't keep z-Order correct for plugins
it still corrupts randomly requiring a "reset" that requires you to reset everything
Mixer configurations corrupt randomly on recall
Mixer presets do really odd things to the mixconsole when loading (zoom, visibility)
and more ...
in other words ... NO
Its not issue. Its how the functionality are made and programed.
I get it now why it is that way. There are a good reason why Steinberg implemented it that way if you haven't notice that yet in Cubase 7.5.
By the way.. when I'm on the mixer-page on my second monitor I never lost connection to it as you describe?
I use pre programed hardware "softkeys" too to control the mixer functions and all work with no issues.
Many of the issues you describe and experience ,I'm afraid I don't have them on my setup..
link channels etc work etc.. Sometimes I use key command for that too..
Multi monitor environment here too= no problems.
organize the plugins? = Use in "preference" organize as "Vendors". and the new "search function" in the plugin window couldn't be easier. I use it every day.
Example want "Waves CLA plugins". Write "CL" in the search field ------> ..and "BOOM "CLA-Compressors comes up automatically.
Write---> Me.... and "Melodyne" comes up... How hard can it be?
Work with it.. not against it!
