List of Feature Requests

I guess I’d like to see an additional controller next to the pads and keys:
A strummer. Strumming on the iPad is possible like we all know from Garage Band.
I’d rather use it like the playmode in the chorder of Cubase. I guess I wouldn’t even use
it with guitr sounds, but with e-piano sounds. There should be a sustian button also and
you should be able to skip through the chords that are already available for the pads.
It’s just an idea. But might be fun.

I am using Cubasis with an Alesis iOdock. I’d love to see support in the Cubasis software for the iOdock footswitch.

This is from the last page of the iO manual:

Footswitch /Functionality/ 1st Message/ Value 1/ 2nd Message/ Value 2
1/ toggle/ MIDI start (250)/ - / MIDI Stop (252)/ -
2/ Momentary/ CC #63/ 127 / CC #63/ 0

Thank you, it works. I tried it on the traks only, not on the “header” of tracks…

Add sidechain / ducking… please!

It would be nice to loop the selection in the audio editor.

Tempo track has already been mentioned but this should also include the ability to change time signature as well. Maybe that’s obvious, but perhaps it doesn’t hurt to clarify! Lots of good suggestions on this thread already, I hope that many of them can be included soon!

Hey Phil. Good Point. I added it to the first post. Thanks.

besides the most obviously (automation,proper eq…) mentioned before i would like to add:

1.better visibility of different regions.Its impossible to see where a region ends and a new one begins until you click on it.And it would be nice if they would a little more"plastically"looking if you know what i mean.They look like ghost copies.

2.Muting selected region(s)

3.easier/faster way to duplicate/copy regions in the edit screen (and/or a loop function for certain regions)

4.zoom out at song pointer position.Zooming is a pita,it never zooms where i currently need it and scrolling is slow.

5.improved interface when you zoom in for a closer look.Interfaces becomes sluggish then.It also freezes sometimes for a couple of seconds when i hide/show the inspector.

6.if you solo a track and “unsolo’” it again all tracks are unmuted then.The prior muted tracks should stay muted!

7.Multitouch for mute buttons.Currently not possible to press more then one mute button at once.

8.(saving own)presets for effects and chords.

9.Pad Banks,so we have more than 16 drumpads accessble (like ABCD=64 pads)

10:Mediabay:swipe to the left=delete

11.Pressing a mute button (or anything else)in the mixer channel always selects the channel immediately.I have to say that the white"blinking"mixerchannel is annoying to me.Would be nice if it behaves like in the edit screen (selects the channel only if you touch on the name or so).alternatively you could make the selected channel a little darker.Best case:do both :slight_smile:

12.i would like to have something like a brightness fader for the edit screen background (in the settings menu).I don’t like it THAT much to stare on a white screen.But maybe it’s just me…

13.CPU meter (or did i just overlooked it?)

14.ability to use own samples at least for the drumpads

15.Make this thread sticky :wink:

As a newbie, I would like to see:

  • Virtual Keyboard with support for (custom) musical scales, similar to the touch keyboard of Magellan and the “KB Scale” tab of Animoog. In fact there seems to be a nice space between the ‘Pads’ button and the ‘e’ button… :stuck_out_tongue:

Cubase 7’s chord track - or something similar - would be an ideal addition to Cubasis.


forgot one:would be more comfortable to have a popup menu for the midi channel selection.

edit:another one :slight_smile:

a few subgroups (2-3)would be handy.

edit2:oops,apologize for requesting a mute function for certain regions.It’s already there,stupid i am :blush:

Also the ability to group tracks would be nice

Added some of your suggestions to the first post. Thank you!

Multiple selection in the Media Bay and Trash

Option to delete the stock audio files

an option to lock a track including all settings for that track

a bigger X tapspot to close the media bay, mixer, keys, pads

touching a track fader in mixer view should scroll the event screen up or down so that the track being edited is visible above the mixer

a feature to add visible bookmarks to the timeline

auto punch in/out

see battery level

midi punch in / out

Audio-Editor: mute selection

I would like to see the audio punch in/out feature added soon too.

Within the key editor, when notes are next to each other and they have the same velocities, then it’s very difficult to see the beginning/end of each note.

Please make the border of the note larger to correct this problem.

Many thanks. :wink:

Getting the features you all have described makes the app a super app. I would like to add a bit more adaptability for outside audio interfaces. Batteries along side of power supplies and functionality of the ur22 keeping it less cumbersome for true mobility. Or a set of stick on mics or inputs. Like the Alesis io dock with a lightening connector

Virtual Keyboard and Midi editor needs to go below C0.I was quite happy that i can use Beatmakers drumsampler via audiobus in cubasis now but realized i can’t access one and a half pad banks cause the pads start at C-2.So i had to remap some of my most important kits which is not a comfortable solution.And i noticed i CAN record pads below C0 into cubasis when i play the pads in BM and record them on a midi track in cubasis.Funny thing is i can’t access/correct the notes then (besides the auto quantize)but they are definitely there and playing.Although"invisible".

Dont know if it’s been mentioned before but a ‘Lock Track’ feature would be good.

When you don’t want any accidental editing, erasing, shifting of track or level mix changes, etc. simply press a lock symbol on a particular track and it will be locked except for solo and mute as needed. Also would protect from accidentally arming the wrong track prior to recording.

24 bit 96 khz recording is a must - Auria already has it :wink:
