One of the things I love most about using Cubase is the way folder tracks operate. The other thing I really love is the listen button. I use this feature far more often than solo. The ability to fade the “un-listen” tracks up or down, even completly out or louder, via the control room is just plain brilliant. Listen tracks also play back ‘correctly’ when sidechained without having to solo the key track. Nice!
Feature request 1 : Listen button on folder tracks…simply puts all tracks in the folder into listen mode.
I work with templates alot and they are very useful, but sometimes mid project things change direction. That electro house track suddenly needs live drums and ukulele
I know there are track presets and multi track presets and that is great, but I think the ability to save a folder track preset would be super awesome great! Almost like sub-templates that you could quickly drop into projects.
Feature request 2 : Ability to save folder track preset… saving folder track preset stores everything about the folder track. Track names, colours, routing (if a mismatch occurs you are warned and asked to fix) inputs, inserts, sends, etc. If possible it would even load up vst instruments in the rack to route midi tracks within the folder out to.
I love the group feature on folder tracks and would love to see it taken further.
Feature request 3 : folder track grouping also ties together changes made in the sample editor , thus allowing multi track free warping and much more. Any thing done in the sample editor to one track is automatically copied to the linked tracks.
Are these requests ridiculous or do they make sense to anyone?
Over and out!
