So bounce, freeze, batch export dialog (two steps forward , two back, very half baked … search for MEAP in the old forum), the dropping of the external editor from the VST32 > SX paradigmn shift and other related commands are now the Achilles heel of Cubase. They are very closely related from a user perspective … which could be seen a good thing.
Now I’ve been wrong before but it doesn’t seem that they’re very optimized to pull in the same direction? I’ve been thinking for some time that it might be a good idea to drop all of the above and start on a new slate?
Drop the names and start at a root and building it all up without the burden of how it used to work, then rename all of it and if the old names still fit, then good, reuse them. No need to change the looks of it even, come to think of it.
We’re talking audio files here .wav/.aiff with start points and endpoints plus number crunching for processing them and eventually presenting them on a screen … and even playing them back through the monitors hehe!
On the surface it doesn’t look like too much research to make it work but there’s probably more to it than meets the eye? Undo history for one …
To me it would make a lot of sense to take a look at this since it seems the commands are fighting each other and sometimes even themselves just to do what they’re designed to do. I only see it from a users view though, so maybe I’m wrong? It ought to work already and it would be great to see some integration in C7 but maybe they already have written the list for that into stone mountain wall?
Having a brand new streamlined audio file thingie like that which just WORKS to present at NAMM 2012 would probably increase the value of Cubendo to a lot of people, me thinks? Or maybe it’s not the way it works at all?
