Viking new UI ... nooo!
 
Anyone else liked the old Viking UI much more than the new and lame brushed aluminum one?

Well I guess I'm not going to update the Viking anymore!

hmmm, does it not sound the same? your eyes must be overriding your ears, because it still sounds great.

If we go after that logic, instruments could look like a turd and it would be fine.

Yup, if the graphical interface wasn't important to me, I wouldn't be using Reason or any software similar. Might as well stick to make music using just code. Would sound the same.

I agree, I don't like this GUI. I find it very hard to look at and distinguish sections and knobs. It should be renamed 'Blamsoft's 50 shades of gray' or 'few shades of gray.'

But, the community is voicing that most like the new one over the old one. I can understand if it's legal reasons they can't keep the old, but c'mon... some different colors wouldn't be bad.

Keep in mind, there's a way you can backup the old version in case there is a significant update in the future you want to try...

I LOVE this synth and I still think it looks like a turd.

those raised sections are pretty funky. Makes a lot of sense when transporting to protect the knobs.


anyway I like the new UI - old one is stale

I like the new UI. It's easier to red for me and therefore I like it :-)

I'll bet they were asked to change it by Moog.
