Good evening every one,
I have been a Cubase user from day one. I even bought the first Cubase midi sequencer with graphic editor on a disk in Amsterdam for the commodore 64, imagine that!
I had great fun in using Cubase in the past.
There is one main issue with the Cubase Daw that has frustrated me for a very long time to a point, that I have stopped using Cubase, and that is using midi controllers.
I have several controllers and using midi controllers gives a superb advantage to my workflow, being able to control all parameters in my DAW from any controller in my setup.
Today every DAW on the market has a learn button, which enables you to select a knob or fader on the screen and move the relevant slider or knob on your controller, and thats it, the fader moves from your controller.
I don’t understand why I need to setup a generic remote device for each of my controllers in such an advanced DAW as Cubase to use it, which most of the time doesn’t even work properly. it is very complicated and time consuming and not at all user friendly destroying my creativity spending hours to set it up and confirming its functionality. If you don’t export your setup, the next time you load your song, nothing is working and you have to set it up all over again… I remember posting this topic already several times on the web without any response. All videos on the internet only explain how to add a generic midi remote device.
I would very much appreciate any comments on this topic or similar user experiences.
My suggestion to Steinberg is to finally implement the learn feature for faders and knobs on the screen just like all the other Daw’s today and make our life easier and forget about adding generic remote midi devices to control the on screen parameters.
I love Cubase as is it the most advanced DAW to this day with superb plugins and editors capabilities.
Dear Steinberg, please respond to my feedback and I encourage user opinions on this topic.
have a good one in 2021 and kind regards,
