Hey everyone! So I’m still really battling with automation in 9.5. Is there any way to get Cubase to revert a parameter to an initial value once automation is finished? I’ve tried various combinations of Virgin Territory, automation filling and so on but it just doesn’t seem to be doing the trick. The last point of automation is the value for that parameter for the rest of the track, or until I draw in a new resting point. Which isn’t too much hassle if you’re just dealing with one parameter. But if you’re modulating the hell out of a synth and you’ve got half a dozen parameters on the move, it’s really tedious to have to keep resetting everything back to the initial patch by hand. Multiply the problem by the number of synths used and…well…you get the point. It’s long! There are other oddities too like, if you accidentally place an automation point in a lane and undo, the point disappears but the new value remains.
I’ve been using Reason for electronic music for this very…uhh…reason. If the starting value of my filter cutoff is 80, I can draw in a clip of automation for a single beat, and copy and paste that data, time stretch and reverse it, move it between tracks, do whatever. And when that automation stops, everything goes back to where it should be. I would LOVE something like this in Cubase. Or is it already possible? Otherwise I guess I’ll just have to make a feature suggestion!
