7.5 Wishlist

I still don’t understand why this is so difficult for Steiny to implement. I’ve wanted this forever, but am not holding my breath that the Steiny programers want to do it…or are even capable of doing it. :confused:

Is this just speculation about a paid 7.5? I haven’t heard anything official

The Score Editor can’t import music XML files properly, that’s a really basic thing for me, but that should be in 7.07 and not a paid update.

Yes it is speculation. I think the OP is drawing that conclusion from the previous 6.5 paid update. There is no reason outside of that to suspect Steinberg will do the same again, other than it may have been beneficial to them financially and they thought the work warranted the extra. I know I bought it because I felt it offered options I wanted and was willing to pay for. If they do the same again I will evaluate it on the same criteria.

smart tool like in SONAR X2 to improve the workflow with automation lanes, just ALT click to select range and double click to to adjust the range value (like in protools too) - no more macros!
I like the whole idea with the Sonar smart tool.

for example whatch from 1:40 to 1:44 : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Gv_fFgKHIfk

I wish the virtual Ninjas were still available. :wink: :wink: :wink:

There’s a lot of great requests in this thread: http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=182&t=43263

Bring back resizable, separate “scroll zone” for master channels zoned right. (as per C6)

Would be useful if you dock more than one channel over there…

Indeed speculation, you’re absolutelly right. I agree with everything you just said.

Thing is, the broad subject right now is product life cycle and upgrades. The 6.5 paid upgrade estabilished something different for Steinberg, and I should also mention the fact that v7 finally made it into the online upgrade model, so we can all agree that SB changed a bit and went for something different. Therefore, making the assumption that there will be a paid 7.5 is not far-fetched and imho totally believable if you look at the big picture. I think we might even get a Cubase 8 cheaper than it was to get v7, but let’s not go there yet.

So far, the transition from 6 to 7 was more expensive if take into account the 6.5 but we got some decent content with those upgrades. We can all agree that 6.5 was a nice upgrade and imho money well spent. My point with this thread is: if there’s gonna be a paid 7.5 and we have more-than-decent reasons to believe that, let’s make our money worth something.


I would like to see automation done like Pro Tools. I would love to be able to highlight a section of audio with the selection tool then “grab” the automation line and just move it up or down (in a straight line) This to me would make Cubase automation the BEST!


Are you saying that adjusts the parameter values across all the automation point in the selection?

If so, is that % or absolute?

How is that really different from Cubase? I can select a bunch of automation points by drawing a rectangle around them, and even press Ctrl to add more sections, then just move the centre top of the resulting light grey rectangle up or down to adjust them all by %.

I found this very useful when sculpturing around vocals because I can select only the upper points and move them up or down independent of the lower points and vice versa.

Guys. Already has release date to Cubase 7.5 ?

I would like to see a dramatic improvement in how Cubase handles “frozen” instrument tracks. They’re audio, but they’re not really audio, because you cannot touch them. Heck, they don’t even stretch with the other tracks. Totally inflexible.

I’d like to see a button that transforms an instrument track into an audio one right away with just one click, without bouncing/mixing down/exporting/etc.

…including automation nodes! I thought I would get used to them disappearing, but it’s still driving me crazy.

+1. Hover stuff is NOT touch-friendly.

I honestly don’t think this will ever happen, as once rendered, quality is gone and when mixed it is noticeable.

I would like to see the quick controls improved like what they have in ableton live, so we can map several parameters to one slider with different strength to each parameters.

This is missing big time in cubase.

Yes please +1. That’d be great, with an option to record only the VSTi direct output(s) and put it on a new track with the same plugins.


Nope. My bet: around April 2014, but this is only a wild guess.

Cool idea, that would be lovely.


Think it’s great that personnel changes are wanting. But please Steinberg. Not all are professionals and earn money with Cubase, but everyone wants to use your software because we like it. Do not make absurd prices because I think some people killed themselves to raise money for the purchase of the software and the opportunity to learn music in a good DAW. Do not forget us.
