Some of you may be looking at the latest version of Logic (10.5) and now wishing that Cubase supported “Live Loops,” i.e., Ableton-style “scenes” that can be triggered on the fly to create arrangements in an interactive manner. I really, really hope Cubase doesn’t follow suit. Cubase is already a colossal program that doesn’t need any more bloat. If people want support for Live-style workflows, then use Live. Please leave Cubase for those of us who develop our arrangements in advance and don’t need to “jam” with different scenes to work out the song structure.
What would be cool is if HALion incorporated some of the autosampling features of the new “Sampler” plugin in Logic (the long-awaited replacement for the EXS24). I have a lot of hardware synths. It would be cool to auto-sample some of my favorite pads and so forth so that I can free up these expressive synths for other more dynamic sounds.
