In Cubase 10, a new change was made to creating an audio track that clutters up the workflow and wastes time. We now have to scroll past all the many inputs the audio interface has in ‘Select Hardware Input’ to get to the named and ordered inputs we’ve taken the time to setup (which appear under the ‘Connect to Bus’ heading).
The solutions that I can see are (in order of preference):
- Allow the user to hide the ‘Select Hardware Input’ tree entirely
- Put “Connect to Bus” first in the list instead of second, so the workflow we’ve customized is the easily accessible one
- Remember the collapsed state of ‘Select Hardware Input’ so at least I don’t have to keep collapsing or scrolling past the ‘Connect to Hardware’ list every time I make a new track
How it currently works, notice the long list of ‘Select Hardware Input’ before we get to the neatly customized ‘Connect to Bus’ list:
