Don’t take this the wrong way: lukasbrooklyn’s solution highlights what I call Macro-Porn… there is so much in the Macro/PLE that gets one excited… until you try to actually use it.
This particular feature probably should be built into the core.
But that said, Macro-Porn (the missing bits of macros and LE) are so glaring, it makes me wonder whether, if I were the software mgr, I would focus on just getting -that- up to speed. If the Macros/LE worked properly about 1/2 of -my- needs/wants/desires (including this) would immediately be solved.
IOW: the more I use Cubase, the less I need ‘features’ so much as I need -automation-… and by that I mean, the ability to automatically instruct Cubase to do stuff it already does, but which I have to tell it to do -manually- ONE THING AFTER ANOTHER. That’s the biggest workflow-killer for me… having to wait between tasks.
When I look at MS Word or Adobe C/S, I take for granted how much of what -seems- to be ‘built-in’ are actually macros. What foresight they had.
I’m sure hundreds of people have rolled up their sleeves with Cubase macros or LE and decided, “I’m going to take care of -this- once and for all!” But then you realise… And you become bitter about it. Like me.
