Read only access to Cubase Media Bay?
It could be a good start.
I would guess that I might sometimes literally only be using Cubase to update the MediaBay database.
A typical working day, could be chopping up large recordings into many individual files.
Having achieved this, you would want to have immediate access to these individual files, and this is where MediaBay comes into its own. Sometimes I could be creating hundreds of assets a day.
I find it easier to work on the individual files within WaveLab.
I think it would be adding unnecessary processes into the production chain by having to go from WL7 to C6, and back to WL7.
At the moment, I create a new project in C6, find the relevant files - bring them into the project.
Then, I open WaveLab, and find the relevant files in the Cubase pool, which is basically being used as a temporary folder.
Ideally, within WaveLab - I would want to have access to all available files, including the newly created assets, and have these ready to bring into WaveLab as individual files, or grouped together in the Audio Montage, or have them available for batch editing.
So whilst being able to have read only access to Cubase MediaBay would be very helpful, it would be far more convenient to have a full version within WaveLab.
It’s hard to explain just how incredibly useful MediaBay is.
Which is why I find it frustrating that it’s not part already part of WaveLab.
Hope that makes sense.
