DP 8 confusing for those with less skull cap hair....
ok.... if a person has been using digital recording products for quite some time, I am sure they would rave about the layout and convenience and logical placement of various knobs, buttons, etc.
However, after staying with the same version of D.P. for over 7 years.... making the switch to DP 8, creates a daunting learning curve with music creation at -0- for the most part since the switch. "where is the formerly positioned toggle.... hmmmm, it used to be right here.... nope... let's look for info in the manual.... FORGET THAT !" Yes, my frustration caused me to pause and search out other possible DAW's.... futile. Back to what I bought... DP 8. Ahhhhhhhh, guess I will just have to age gracefully through the learning curve.
Suggestions for others having difficulty: grab a DAW tech savvy friend (like Sweetwater techs) or some youngster whiz kid from the local school .... kick back with an ice tea, and watch them click through the process... while you "uh-huh, yup, ok" your way through the learning curve.
