Would 'Start on MIDI Event" be useful or not?
- This is a good idea for a new feature
- This function would not be of any use to me
Hi everyone, I am putting this out here again, I have each time since C4. In some other DAWs, for example, Digital Performer, you can choose to “arm” the transport to either play or record, as soon as there is any input of any midi event…
This has a couple of useful functions, for example, imagine you are using a midi drum kit, you are working alone, and your kit is 20 feet from your control room… count-off would have to be ridiculously long to let you get over to your rig in time to get settled, then track with your material. IN DP, you can trigger it to start recording immediately, or to simply trigger the count-off.
Sure, there are some remote control products, but this usually requires one of those “inexpensive” iPads or other hardware.
For me, I like sometimes to start right into a part, no click, I’ve already got the meter in my head. My “punch in” methodology from years ago (1980’s), when I did use Performer v2 and on. Since those days, I eventually went Steinberg. I miss that function.
Sadly, Cubase does not yet support this little function. And I don’t want to use DP! Steinberg, please consider this!
