druzz wrote:i just upgraded to v2 ,mostly to be able to take part in this discussion

i was reading this thread , deeply wishing i could have my own opinion on the subject .

so


i like the look of v2. i liked it the first day . the second day ( today ) i love it . i feel its more alive and dynamic . maybe it could have some minors improvements, i'm not against it but I dont need them.


i absolutely dig the style of the right click menus !! with the blue selection box , the bold text and the sharp icons


yesterday i would have said i liked v1 graphics as much but i just opened it today and it looks bland and dead to me compared to v2 now. don't get me wrong v1 looked real nice , all heterogeneous smooth and soothing and all that , but i much prefer the new version ,

I'm not too keen on too much visual options in the preferences because i feel it is superfluous . i wouldnt mind one or two basic settings especially if they help eye sensible folks but honestly i would personally prefer if such option were not available as they can add clutter in our precious ,clean and fresh code. this is a sublime piece of German digital engineering , not a carnival or a work of visual art .

I'm more interested in the functionality of the visual interface and i think they nailed it . and as a bonus it looks good to me and i even find it inspiring .


thanks to the developers for all the improvements in v2

Studio One General Discussion » When does Digital become Analogue? » Go to message
ok so i have a hybrid set up, mainly software instruments and analogue effects.. my question is when i process my digital sounds through analogue gear, besides sounding awesome, is the sound now, in effect, analogue? is it the source that matters most or the last path in the chain? i know everything goes back to "digital" when bouncing the track back on the computer/cd, but im talking the overall nature of the sound now. vice-versa too, if i start with an analogue synth and appply some digital effects, does it now become digital?

Don't get me wrong, I've even FR'd the idea of being able to assign different colors to busses to be able to keep visual track of things, but... Skins, hell no, tweaks as I mentioned, for functionality, yes, but not not "look at me" bling. I do understand that user adjustments for us old folks that don't see as well as we used too might be indeed a good idea. But, guys, I think that the devs already are assessing that. They would not have made a change since 1.5 if they were not trying to look at these things.

With all that said, this is a DAW, not a static picture. I don't think Florian gets enough credit for the fantastic work he does translating the code for audio that is just killer to a visual that gives the end user the information and tactile response to manipulate that code to create. Useability is a huge key to this DAW's well deserved awards, and a lot of that comes from the ability of the end user to interpret graphically how to use the product. I, for one, appreciate how this puppy is coming along! Thanks, Florian!

spot on. S1 (especially V2) GUI is absolutely fucking GORGEOUS. black/grey contrast is insanely modern and clear cut, everything sticks out as it should while not being "in you face" (no the bad kind, at least). the GUI is what attracted me in the first place since all other DAWs seem so archaic and are just eye-sores. ya i would love some coloured ACCENT options, but the GUI is an equally important roll in the "function" of the DAW as all its features.. and the S1 GUI is perfect for its workflow

the most imporved area is the mixer, now with the clearly defined black/grey contrast makes it an absolute JOY to use, i hated the old "blue on grey" mixer, seemed so cheap and bland, this new one is definitely a step in the right direction, as is everything else, ESPECIALLY the transport!!!

I dont think we need the themes option but the way that any area of Reaper can be coloured to a shade of your own preference would be useful
I also like the idea at around 3.31 where a user can select what Icons they want, would be useful, don't like the flat buttons in S1 v2, simple, select from a list of others


idk, if this could be implememnted with out bloating the program and code base (which i think it would) then ok, but if it just weights down the program then no way. im in LOVE with the S1 interface i think it reflects their "no bullshit" attitude that you see in there feature implemntations.

I feel keeping all the color crap out helps users with not-so robust machines as busier graphics on machines that share system memory with its video will draw more CPU.

I know ONE REASON is gonna have a cow over this but the GUI should remain the just as it is. If I want fancy flashy colors I'll plant a flipping garden.

All this over-abundance of chatter about the GUI is silly (at best). Presonus will take better note of all these GUI suggestions if they are properly listed in the Feature Request threads.

So common guys, it's all starting to sound like a high-school food fight now. I know some folks are graphic designers, artists and paint by numbers freaks. But this is a DAW, not a coloring book.


your not very respectful Sir calling us silly and at high school level...... if we dont like the GUI or the colors why blame us for that ?

(no native english btw....)

p.s i work in a darker environment , thats why me and my studio buddies prefer darker settings for our software and not because we just want some funny colors. we have a valid reason for this request..


very true, no need for an entitled attitude. unfortunately it gets rewarded far too often

while i love the look of the new v2, i have been calling for custom options for a while, like the ability change the blue color accents. i think your request is very valid, contrast/saturation levels would be great because they dont change WHAT the y GUI looks like, but HOW. like you said, you work in a dark environment and need to adjust accordingly. While ONE REASON and friends like to play the good/bad dynamic and be GUI heroes, its nice to get a fresh persepective on the issue from some one who talks from actual experience, instead of egotistical ranting.

Add your vote. There's about three different threads of ... discussing ... it all with the idea (I suppose) of finding out how people feel about it all. So far at least the new GUI seems to be preferred by most.


Heavily.... is 10-1

It's far from that.

By... most?..... that's just not true.

You should be less biased in your posts Lmike.


heavily... is relative. 29/63 is pretty heavy, if you saw it on a scale youd know

by most? definitely, try looking up the word in a dictionary and learn that it applies

you should stop telling people how to post

the new mixer is 100000x better, greater contrast that doesnt get lost in the rest of the program, its one of my favorite GUI changes, much more functional and aethetically pleasing. at first i didnt think i liked the transport but i actually prefer it now, sure it might not be as "pretty", but it definitely has its own vibe and i like it. S1 defintely need much more contrast and before the program looked a bit bland, Presonus recognized this and stepped up and i love the results. a few minor things could be changed (i agree with the buttons all over) but tis is 100% a positive direction for the GUI

right there. new version always get reactionaries riled up. work with it, get used to it, then comment. i personally love most of the updates, while some no so much, but overall i f'ing love the look of this prgram, especiall the new mixer, folder tracks, and tracklists. More black, presonus!


I think there is a common misconception here that.. if one uses something long enough it automatically becomes... ok... tolerable, better. If that was the case.. why ever change.. anything?

I did work with it, I dont need a week to form an opinion on.. a button.

As I have said, I like most of the improvements, the changes mentioned in my OP, aren't going to be viewed any differently by me, in a week, or a month....or.



no one said that just cause you get used to it then its ok. read before jumping to conclusions. what was said was "get used to it, then comment", meaning use it, settle in, and then re-evalute. till dont like it? fine, who cares. its a common misconception that people think their first reactions are always rights and constant.. just cause you think somethign today doesnt make it so tmrw. thats how people stay stagnant... actually a leading psychological cause to fascism. point is, dont be REACTIONARY

I guess I just try to uphold companies I am shopping to a higher standard than you.

Also, my own business.

Don't fault me for expecting the best... and trying to provide it.


not faulting you for shit in that respect, because Presonus can do a much better job than any pathetic egoist like yourself can. Providing the best? Higher standard?Funny how you try to be beacon of light when everyone clearly sees you as a pile of shit. move along

that looks more like..

Maybe it's just me, but If it was my project, company, I'd have been out front on this. Thats what I mean by lack of professionalism.

"Just chill out and wait, like everyone else" is a weak response.. IMO

But not reversable. S1 has a permanent undo function on event based FX.


yes, i meant more of a "shortcut" for apply effects quickly, like an easy extension of the options in the Inspector. Quickly apply effects using right click, but in-depth editing through Inspector
