Great idea again. Not sure the word vertical is helpful in explaining it. Something like a “Go to track” setting.
With the render in place in cubase 8 plopping new tracks under every midi track in a way that can’t be changed, apparently (other than render all to one track), it makes this vertical marker or go to track feature even more appealing.
My problem with calling them ‘Track’ markers is a distinctly Germanic predilection for overly-complicated nomenclature. They looooooves having 20 slightly different variations on the same theme. Maybe it’s a Bach deal.
VERTICAL is what it is. Up and down. vs. Side to side.
That’s how -I- think of the project. It’s a giant piano roll… or spreadsheet. The cols are notes, the rows are tracks.
well, when I read the post, re “vertical” I initially understood you to mean a long vertical line extending a marker (at the top) down through all the tracks. I do understand what you mean, and like the idea, just saying the communication did not immediately work for me.
If it uses the same -mechanism- as ‘Markers’ it needs to be called ‘markers’. But it also has to have a name that is UNIQUE enough that people don’t get confused with all the subtle variations. The latter is what I called the ‘Germanic problem’… you end up with endless variations of ‘Warp’ or ‘Tabs’… which makes one have to crack the manual like a 1040 form every time one wants to do -any- task related to time/pitch/hitpoints.
In short, a good name -is- important.
Although I admit I might be so overjoyed, as not to care if it was called Susan With The Big Blouse===so long as it worked as advertised.
But, whatever, its a great idea anyway… for really big projects anything that achieves quick (I mean quick…!) navigation would help. ‘Track Visibility’ is not the answer here - that’s another (nice and welcome) facet of project management/screen real-estate IMO.
