Colour settings for the Midi Controller Lanes

Post by Neil_C »

Hi,
Does anyone know how I can change these from the default dark grey colours? I've changed the main edit screen in Cubase but, despite reading the manual, I can't seem to add colours the controller lanes!
Thanks,
Neil

Under Preferences: Appearance > Colors > Editors

Uncheck the box that says "Use Project Colors"

(Stephen57 that info is not correct- Neil_C is on C9.5)

In Cubase 9.5 the controller lanes share the Editor Area Background colors. Individual controller lanes can't be colored separately.

I remember this feature very well.
Was hoping to see it in 10.5 as they put so much effort in colour assigning. :roll:

I would love to see it come back as an option ASAP!!!
