Key Visual Differences between 5 and 6 *Video*

Post by dannyjlewis »

I just knocked up a quick video comparison of the 5 and 6 interface differences.. both were running fine together on my machine simultaneously so big up the Steinberg coders for that feat!

All good but the default settings for appearance of MIDI parts could do with a subtle tweak for me.. find out in the video below.

I'm also missing the colour shortcut at the base of the channel strip and still making my mind up about the lack of coloured backgrounds distiguishing the different track classes (ie group/FX return etc)

Overall i'm really liking this new version. Will try and get some more stuff up soon but i'm full on with making sure the existing Cubase Course at Point Blank Online is not out of date with regards to new Cubase 6 features. For the record I will also be creating new videos in C6 to add to the existing course content.

Cheers, interesting sneak peek, the lack of variable track type colours is one thing already
discussed but i find that the midi event opacity thingy is kinda crucial

Thanks for a cool comparison. Seeing as you're using the OS X version, any difference in performance to C5?

Try to hold down a modifier key while you click on the color on the Mixer (CTRL or ALT or SHIFT) ;)
