Seriously. This is one of those little details I use ALL the time (or rather would -like- to use all the time) and it -never- gets fixed. I KNOW it’s the easiest thing in the world to fix if someone will simply TAKE FIFTEEN MINUTES. But it NEVER gets addressed.
Activate any non-Steinberg VST Insert Effect.
Switch to Generic Editor Mode.
Now… instead of using the blue slider to change the amount of any parameter, click on the number. You can now directly enter the numeric amount (as in any other numeric input).
Type in yer number and hit .
Watch the numeric value change to -infinity.
Look… for complicated plugs… the Generic Editor is FABULOUS. Save a TON of screen space and gets you right to business. No fannying about with elaborate graphics.
This has been broken for over 10 years. It’s not like some complicated ‘algorithm’. It’s just a data input field that doesn’t work like every other data input field in Cubase. So why NOT fix it? My only guess? IT’S NOT SEXY ENOUGH to warrant 15 minutes for the programmer.
