If yer like me, you often use automation on volume as a ‘compressor’… riding the gain inversely to the signal peaks.
I think it would be nice if one could right click on a clip, activate a function called ‘Create Curve From Amplitude’ and Cubase would analyse the amplitude of the signal and then create a matching (or more using INVERSE) curve of points underneath that clip in the automation lane.
Et Viola… instant gain riding!
Now, you may ask… how ‘sensitive’ should it be? To which I reply: WHO CARES? So long as it saves me the hassle of creating all those pesky automation points, I can then easily grab the points I want and raise them up or down as needed.
(Although a sensitivity knob would be cool. )
