My Wish List for Cubase 9


I would add the ability to Bounce offline like you make in ADOBE video editing stuff where you make a offline bounce workline. You put projects and format you want to export and in the end of the day you go out of the studio leaving the computer rolling and in the morning you have all your bounced tracks done.

Tell me, how many of you have spent hours just bouncing tracks to a record, a backing track player computer, doing master tracks, instrument track, wherever track, 48khz for this support, 44.1khz for that, mp3 for the internet… and so on and so on.

Imagine if you could just request it and by night the computer does it? This would be the biggest workflow enhancemente ever.

Oh, does confuse this with the ability to export multiple tracks, thats implementes. I want to export multiple bounce versions and I dont want to be there to see it. :slight_smile:

  1. Needed very much. The request for that was in the forum of Cubase 7
    and still no changes…

No doubt I just asked about that in the Steinberg booth at AES last week in LA. I found out that the Nuage has that built in with the shuttle while like the Icon does.

Being able to take left and right mono sides of a stereo file and drag them onto a stereo track like you can in ProTools. This makes cleaning up AAF and OMF files very fast, and eliminates extra fader usage when using a control surface. Nuendo needs this as well. If these apps had that one feature I would leave ProTools completely.

Maybe you already are familiar with this but I actually find Nuendo to be a bit more flexible than Pro Tools in this regards since Nuendo lets you drag mono files onto stereo tracks and for me is a wonderful middle ground between Logic and Pro Tools. Pro Tools forces you to have stereo files and doesn’t let you change the panners function between the balanced and stereo. Logic just gives you a balanced panner when it is stereo and makes you use a somewhat confusing plug-in if you want to steer the sound in stereo.

Perhaps there is a preference or something that might solve the problem to just be able to drag the files as you want them on to stereo tracks, I use that too in Pro Tools. Check out the screenshot(s) these are options not found in Pro Tools or Cubase that would be very nice to have.

I agree with your list!! Being able to split stereo file to dual mono and vice versa would be amazing!!!
I would really like it if they could add that possibility in the omf export panel … Pro tools doesn’t support stereo files in omf and I unfortunatly have to work with pro tools at the office :confused:

  1. Enable Timecode, Seconds, Time Signature, and Tempo info view columns option inside the Marker’s window (like in Logic where you have all in one view).

  2. Quantizing in the arrange window causing to accidentally hit the ‘Q’ button while in arrange window if a region is selected. Would like to see this fixed in the next version to only perform the midi quantize function to only those that are selected in the key editor.

  3. The ability to expand the Inspector window horizontally in the arrange window.

Video export would be great. Not so enthused about some of the other suggestions though. For instance when you mention STRAIGHT/PARABOLA LINE TOOL KEY COMMAND, you seem to be implying that having a linear point automation system is okay. We should have smart automation curves between two given points. FL Studio has been way ahead of us on things like this for the longest time. We’re so behind the ‘curve’.

I would like to see the respective path of each vst plugin next to it in the plugin manager.
That’s all :slight_smile:


On my wish-list:

  • Revamped/Updated Generic Remote with OSC support (instead of being MIDI-only)

I would like to be able to automatically align multiple vocal tracks, like in Revoice Pro 3.
I also miss the function to be able to have a pen tool for “writing” vibratos eg. in Variaudio

+1 both of those would be great additions, ARA support for the pitch correction would be super helpful and allow me to use a lot of the tools that Melodyne already has.

I’d also love to see the chord track show at the top of vari-audio

And independent zoom levels for the track devide a button to link or unlink the zoom levels since clearly many people would want them to stay linked including myself a lot of the time.

+1 good OP post, worth Steinbergs attention.


I find adjusting anything in the key editor (velocity, for example) a giant pain, especially if there are a ton of sounds.
It definitely needs an upgrade.


My main wish for cubase 9, Try intergrating the Sequel 3 software into cubase. Main purose so the alphabetical blocks of the arrangement mode in cubase should now be made into the performance mode. That’s just in case if they decide to discontinue with Sequel.

I did see a sequel folder in the customization section when installing. Does this mean they are including sequel samples in future updates?

Pretty sure Cubase comes with all stock Sequel content.

That’s good to know as I have sequel but never use it. Just bought it for extra sounds
