Might want to account for minorities of users who use niche features that not as many Cubase users use.
For instance. "Do You Work ITB or OTB/Both?
Anyone who works OTB with analog hardware will agree External FX needs to be improved, but I’m assuming there is a much larger user base of people working exclusively ITB, so the voting numbers might show that no one seems to care about External FX, when there is a very important professional/commercial user group that does, and are also probably too busy to be keeping their eye on the forums to see this poll.
My most wanted “feature” was not on the list:
Make volume and panning accessable directly in the project window - like Logic and Protools.
In Cubase you to have to select the track first and then via the inspector adjust volume and panning.
Make Cubase and Wavelab (when the user buys both) the PLUGINS available for both Cubase and Wavelab.
For instance the Frequency EQ, you cannot use it in Wavelab…
The Master Rig from Wavelab, cannot be used in Cubase.
The Reason is : I made a whole project tracks in Cubase 10 with Frequency and save presets, i mind i could use Frequency in Wavelab.
I was wrong, the plugin Frequency cannot be used in wavelab.
Quess what : Fabfilter Pro Q2 works in Cubase and Wavelab and i can use the saved presets…
That is kind of sick that i have to use other plugins from other manufacturors.
And set aside Steinberg Plugins that work only under Cubase 10 or Only under Wavelab 9.5…
I am a believer you buy Cubase 10 and Wavelab 9.5, you surely could use PLUGINS in both software.
But instead, this is not the case…
I was kind of surprised as well that this wasn’t mentioned. There are a lot of things missing that I get as requests on a regular base. I would suggest that we do these kind of polls every couple of month. We could keep the top 25 items and exchange the bottom half with new items.
My most wanted “feature” was not on the list either:
Please bring back the resizable right-click toolbox…
(It needs less mouse movement while editing with two shorter rows in stead of one long row. I can’t get used to it and stick on Cubase 9.5 although I bought 10)
mixing. all three mixers can be used without sharing global settings
eg mixer 1 input busses meters set to input
mixer 2 meters set to other than what mixer 1 and three are …
thanks for the chance to voice my wish
That’s something that’s useful for pro users to have a quick workflow. But I don’t think home users have it highly prioritized.
The time window to send requests this time was from friday afternoon until saturday morning. You can then expect mostly home user replies. If this would be published next time, let’s say, on a monday morning, you could probably expect a bit different replies, i.e. a higher share of pro user replies.
I don’t think it’s Pro/Home split at all. I think it has more to do with preferences around user workflow and UI. For instance, I keep my tracks in the Arranger very thin as to see as many tracks as I can. And if I need a larger view on a track for editing or something, I’ll toggle the track height with Z. So with very thin tracks, I’m not going to see volume and pan in the Arranger/Project view.
Now, how do I work like this? Well, it works in conjunction with a mixer that’s almost constantly docked. Then I’ve got a screenset/keybinding that gets me to full-blown mixer view. All on a wide-screen monitor. The volume/pan adjustments happen either in the docked mixer, or full screen one, and the widescreen eliminates the need for a lot of horizontal scrolling.
So with that type of setup, adding a volume and pan to the Arranger very little value. But I don’t begrudge anyone who wants it, and it’s a very common feature in most DAWs. But it wouldn’t add much to my particular workflow. I prefer the docked mixer for volume/pan.
You know what I would love to see though? Fully height adjustable mixer channels like Reaper that could display inserts and sends all at once, even when docked! Heck, just give me 4 insert slots and the first send! And if there’s not enough height, then only show the faders.
