Midi Parts Library!

A drag and drop library for midi/sysex/automation/etc would be amazing.

NGL I never thought of automation when posting this, but it is a fantastic add.

By automation, do you mean midi controllers, or actual track automation?

Not my idea, I saw it posted above somewhere… but I was picturing track automation.

Thinking about it more, I guess Cubase would also need some kind of automation container/clip system. This would be a great time saver though.

The time savings could be huge. Clicking around in tiny mod lanes is a real ask sometimes.

I suggested something like the automation idea but for Note Expression. Just drag the curve over with a dialogue to specify the length in beats, bars or timecode.

Like this, and tbf my solution wasn’t as elegant. But to be able to drag drop events of all kinds freely between the MediaBay would be golden.

It all points in the same direction really, that the MediaBay’s implementation is in a sense somewhat incomplete.

.midiloops are great, but indeed are missing the automation lane data.
Also not being able to drag & drop to mediabay is just plain silly considering its meant to be our ‘go to’ media manager.

On top of all this, i think .midiloops are not enough, where is the equivalent for audio?
Nuendo has .clippackage which can do multiple audio tracks, but they dont include insertFX XD.

Why do we always stop one short of being an amazing feature?

I would love to see a SINGLE container file like ‘.midiloops’ which can work for any data in cubase,
including multiple audio, midi, instrument, group, fx tracks…
With automation…

XML’s are just stupid clunky, not in a single container file and are also not accessible via medibay…

There is much to agree with in your post, but this is gold.

A lot of the requests here are summed up in this.

BTW does anyone know if Reaper—or any other DAW—has this?
