I was using Logic at a friend’s place today, and the way it handles multi-timbral instruments makes Cubase feel old and lacking.There should be a single track with both MIDI and audio for every channel of a multitimbral instrument, not just the main one. That way we can also move the main plug-in automation with events on different multi-timbral channels, and can freely assign all of the different instrument’s outputs audio-wise, which right now you can only do on the main multi-timbral instrument channel. In Cubase MIDI is a completely separate thing from the instrument itself with a multi-timbral instrument, aside from the main first channel. In Logic (and many other DAWs) you don’t have a separate channel for each MIDI part and each audio part – they are together as one, and you can freely assign any audio output or MIDI channel as you wish.
It’s simple, pro, fast, elegant, and far more efficient than the way Cubase handles it now, and I hope to see an improvement in that in an upcoming update. Most other DAWs have it this way for a very great reason, and so should Cubase. Having a separate MIDI channel and also needing a separate corresponding audio output of the instrument makes for way more navigating and clicking about than is necessary.
