I am a new user to CuBase, have been using Ableton for a long time and wanted to thread new ground. I like CuBase it has a great feel to it and the sound engine is impeccable. I have been, as most people who change DAW’s or any type of software for that matter, trying to get used to how CuBase does things that Ableton does. They both of course have their pro’s and con’s but this post is not a comparison. What I am hoping to find is a way to limit the stepping of an automation point on an automation track for a piece of audio. I have done quite a bit of googling, a lot of searching in this forum and I have also read page 227 - 243 in the manual however I have not found a way to accomplish what I want.
I can explain it how Ableton does it…basically when you select an automation point and darg the mouse up and down (depending on the parameter) it will take large steps…e.g. volume will step in 3db’s, however if you want to minimise the amount that it steps you can hold the shift key down and it will step in 1db’s. In CuBase it seems to only step in large amounts and I am unable to control the changes to a granularity I like.
Is there a setting in CuBase whereby the level of change of an automation step as you mouse it up and down can be limited?
Thanks in advance.
