It’s not that the slight extra delay bothers me. It’s that I don’t understand why there appear to be 2 different processes to accomplish the same thing, as opposed to the mouse click vs Key Command triggering the same identical process.
Seriously, I think that Cubendo is now old enough, and complicated enough, that there are all manner of parallel and/or similar-but-not-identical functions handling things under the hood.
I suspect that Cubendo is increasingly difficult to advance, in terms of programming, without unintentionally breaking some of those similar-but-not-identical processes. I give you the VCA debacle. At some point, there is going to have to be some serious elbow grease invested into cleaning things up in order to proceed forward, I expect.
I remember when Euphonix decided to rewrite their S5 console software almost from scratch because they were literally painting themselves into a corner in terms of development options. I heard that info directly from the mouth of the software engineers during a visit to their headquarters in about 2007. Cubendo seems, at least to me, to be heading for somewhat of a similar rewrite, if not as complete.
Just my own musings for no particular reason.
