It’s noticeably faster to open a plugin when you hold down CMD (on Mac, anyway - not sure if it’s the same on Windows), and the system setting for the mouse double click speed strangely affects how fast Cubase opens up a plugin GUI (when you don’t hold down CMD at the same time, which you never would). This does not happen in Pro Tools, Reaper, or Studio One on my same Mac, so I know it’s not necessary and can be fixed - on those DAWs the plugin GUIs open up super fast (as they do in Cubase when you hold down CMD on Mac). Things like this are what add up quickly when you’re working day-in-and-day-out on a DAW. A fix for this would be highly welcome!
- Adjust the mouse double click speed in your system settings on Mac to be as fast as possible.
- Open a plugin’s GUI and you will notice that it’s faster than when you have the double click speed on slower settings.
- Hold down CMD when you open up a plugin’s GUI.
- You will notice that it opens noticeably faster than when you don’t hold it down, and more noticeably when your system mouse double click speed is set slower.
