One thing I’d like to see is a stock gain plug-in that can be put anywhere on the inserts.
The pre-gain is a given but I think it would be so helpful and time-saviing have a gain plug-in for the inserts.
A lot of plug-ins, especially emulations, have a sweet spot. So you might have to increase the gain before hitting the target plug-in, and then reduce it again by the same amount. But not all plug-ins have an input / output control.
I use a 3rd party one when I need this but having stock ones (mono, stereo etc) in Cubase would be great!
Out of curiosity, which one are you using? I use the free Sleepy Time Records Mono/Stereochannel. Unfortunately they are not developed any further, so once they dont work anymore, I’ll need to replace them…
You missed the point. We are talking about plugins which could be put in every needed insert slot. Before or/and after compression/Eq/fx/whatever. The track strip cannot do that. Also this is a limiter as you said, we are talking about a simple gain plugin.
