I have just ported over to Cubase from Ableton Live and one of the features I miss the most is the integrated search function. This would work by typing Cmd+f then typing the sound source or plugin you were looking for and having it pop up in the side bar. I am aware cubase has the media bay but its always a few more steps away from use that I think it needs to be. Integrating it to the hotkey would save so much time.
Also with the search function in live you can Cmd+F and type a plugin which is really helpful for trying out sound design or mix ideas…cmd+F - type plugin name - click it and it would be assigned to the currently selected track. Again in cubase currently its a few steps away to get the same result.
Finally with Live’s search function is the ability to have custom folders in the side bar which you can click to get access to your most commonly used sounds files, perfect for when you want to layer in quick elements. The media bay does sort of achieve this but with much more fluff and needless obstacles in the way. Just the option to see folders I want and be able to click them would be great.
Other than that, loving Cubase so far!
