Loving Cubase 7 so far. Quick question about hitpoints

I was just wonder if there’s been any attempt to ever improve the hitpoint detection. Possibly some kind of automatic filtering where i can tell it that i’m doing a “snare” track. I use it a lot but it’s always been rather inaccurate compared to something like Slate Trigger in terms of it’s ability to detect. Is there any way at all to tweak/improve detection?
