I don’t see why Steinberg can’t implement this obvious “feature”. Of cause the controller channel layout should follow the MixConsol visibility layout! Why, on earth, would I hide a channel in the MixConsol and still have it clutter up my control surface?
It’s so easy! When I open a project, Cubase sends a “channel profile” to the Eucon surface. When I add a channel in the project, Cubase updates the “profile”. When I delete a channel in the project, Cubase updates the “profile”. So, why can’t Cubase simply update the “profile”, when a channel is made hidden/visible?
Nektar has got it right, in their Cubase integration software. Hide a channel in the MicConsol and it goes away from the Panorama controller. Make it visible in the MixConsol and it returns to the Panorama.
Is it? Why, then, have Steinbergs ignored all complaints about this for years?
Come on Steinberg. I dare you. If a “small” developer like Nektar can get it right, why can’t you?
