So, I really like new features on 8.5, but one of them keeps freaking me out - and even if this feature is added to help on workflow - it doesn’t help me at all. Here is the video example which should explain it all:
Let’s say you have a group track (SNARE GR for instance) right above the first audio track of drums - like on the video I recorded. You wanna select couple events so you drag the mouse above the tracks - and 90% of the time you accidentally write automation on SNARE group. Ok, there is no problem you could say - you can just turn off automation on the track and it won’t draw automation - and yes - it has been working till Cubase 8.0, but now is not.
So my first question is - can I turn this feature off? So I could not write automation on tracks which doesn’t have “R” green?
Second thought is - why WE STILL CAN’T UNDO MIXER OPERATIONS? In the video you can see that after I accidentally wrote automation on Snare group, I clicked undo couple times to take back snare group to it’s default Volume - but guess what - it stays at the volume of the automation even if you turn it off. It’s happening because fader volume is one the thing WE STILL CAN’T UNDO.
Anyway, just my 2 cents on this case. Hope I’m not alone with this.
