As a Cubase user throughout the late 90s and early 2000s, who moved to Logic, I have been considering switching back for a while, limited only by a few functions and the general low-latency performance of Cubase on Mac.
General reports are suggesting that ASIO Guard 2 makes a massive difference from a latency perspective, so I am now interested in revisiting the switch again.
I have a question though - if I want to copy a track’s settings (effects, instruments, or the content of the track itself) from one project to another, is there a simple dialogue that will let me do this? Logic allows this through an import content option, where you can tick the track or tracks you want to bring over from another project, as well as whether you want the effects, or the I/O, or the track content itself, or a combination of these. It’s very easy and incredibly useful.
My understanding is that to do this in Cubase, you need to open both projects, then drag the required track over, after which you can delete the track content from the new project if you only want the settings. Pretty cumbersome!
So - is there good news in Cubase 8? Has a well featured track import option arrived?
