I guess I am supposed to disable the studio, but I don’t know what the “Studio” is even though I know cubase pretty well. The big ugly blank status line that takes up a massive amount of real-estate keeps coming back, over and over and over again.
I read the thread but just to be sure you are not confusing one thing for another. I looked at your picture and think it is not showing the Status Line but the Info Line. If you want it all to be gone click the little wheel (see picture and use the second wheel from the right) and disable both Status Line and Info Line. I disabled them and added a track. They both remain disabled. Hope this is what you are looking for.
Thanks for your reply. I triple-checked and I do indeed mean the status line at the very top. In my workflow I do not ever need additional info on: Audio inputs, audio outputs, Max record time, Record format, Project frame rate, Project pan law, External Sync.
Even if I disable these and disable the status line it still comes back, even if it is completely blank because everything is disabled. It takes a huge amount of real estate and doing some google searching I was surprised people have been complaining about this design for almost a decade… I still love Cubase but am surprised at this oversight.
Just to be clear I do not find the additional info provided by the status line to be useful to my workflow in any circumstances at all. I am working on various EDM with no live recording and only output to my headphones. Even with control room disabled and all elements of the status line disabled, a blank status line keeps coming back, over and over and over again.
For trying to be helpfull I inserted a few pictures how it works on my side. The first picture shows a project with the Info Line and Status Line enabled but no events selected. This leaves indeed the empty useless space. Note that the empty space is the Info Line.
And then the third picture shows both Status Line and Info Line disabled. Disabeling the Status Line removes the data you do not want to see. I tried it with adding a new track as well but these settings remain and both Status Line and Info Line do not appear any more.
