The Project Logical Editor and Logical Editor (As well as MIDI Transformer) are really one of the most important Cubendo entities that set apart from the rest of the DAWs.
The amount that can be accomplished with P/LE and macros is astounding, and I’ve seen users create their own functions in such a way that I bet Steinberg didn’t even know was possible themselves.
More people in the professional DAW world need to know about this part of Cubase, it will make Cubase the Adobe Photoshop of the DAW world, so a good proper thorough update of the interface and protocol will also serve as a great promo of its capabilities.
Project Logical Editor: Ability to adjust length from start, rather than end.
There should be
‘Length from start’
‘length from end’
Project Logical Editor: Action Target: Position: Beyond Cursor/Selected Track | Before Cursor/Selected Track
There is a workaround for this, but just including it would make things easier to develop.
Project Logical Editor: Allow project cursor and locators to be targeted
Project Logical Editor: Generate Name Predendum / Addendum, Generate Chromatic, Generate A-Z
‘Generate Name Addendum’ and ‘Generate Name Predendum’
Would add the numerically ordered numbers to existing name.
‘Generate Chromatic’ and ‘Generate Chromatic Addendum’ and ‘Generate Chromatic Predendum’
Would add letter and number and repeat for extended selections… ie, starting on D#1 for 15 events would end at F#2. Very useful when creating samples.
Would use typical A-Z / Aa-Zz sort
Project Logical Editor/Length/Operation - Set to: Locators
this would be great for quickly resizing cycle markers to events in which the locators have been set to.
additional Project Logical Editor property: "Is Under Cursor"
I’m pretty sure this could be useful in some instances for example:
I want to select all markers under the cursor across multiple marker tracks in a big project in order to give them the same name.
Project Logical Editor - Target Fader Level value
There are typically 3 static positions I want to put a fader to. 0db, -6db, or -12.
-would maybe need two different modes of fader targeting: absolute or increment
Project Logical Editor - Need to differentiate between ‘File Name’ and ‘Description’ atm, Name = Description only
There needs to be targets and actions for both ‘File Name’, and ‘Description Name’ fields.
Other General Functions
Save Project Logical Editor state with project
this should save window open/close state, as well as whatever PLE script is loaded.
Project Logical Editor - Need Multiple Functions in Series: Select–>Transform
Sort of like the MIDI Input Transformer has 4 modules.
Possibility to assign a key to “Apply” button of logical editor
Great if using a preset in a reoccurring manner on say certain events
Project Logical Editor: implement boolean test for button states
-GUI could use overall modernization to match rest of Cubase
-Ability to drag/re-order the Filters and Actions
Modernized Presets Menu
-An attached or optionally detached pop out menu. (Like Groove Agent Library Menu)
-Ability to trigger PLE presets from the menu, rather than needing to load into the PLEditor. (Like Groove Agent library instrument preview)
-Folder/Subfolder creation from within the preset menu which mirrors to the actual directory.
Virtual Button Board akin to MetaGrid
Allow users to add PLE scripts, key commands and macros to a customizable button board they can leave floating in their project, with the ability of having multiple pages to organize different button/command types.
-Allow re-naming and colouring of the buttons
-Allow user to load in graphics for each button (with a deeper sub-editor that allows an image for off-state, and on-state). Track Pictures can also be mirrored here.
-Buttons can be macros themselves, allowing a user to add a series of commands, and or PLEs, and or existing macros.
-MIDI #'s and Channels can be assigned to the buttons for triggering them - someone can quickly turn their drumpads into a PLE trigger interface.
–And or integration into Generic Remote
-toggle button mode, with separate “on” command slot, and “off command slot”
FIXES Disclaimer, haven’t used 11 yet so maybe some of this fixed (fingers crossed)
MACRO LIST NEEDS TO BE FIXED!
I got very creative with macros and PLE, and the macro list in PLE is now off my screen halting development.
The example shows, I’m using PLE to select certain colours of a selection already made. The program/PLE is executing as intended but the graphics do not refresh and it so shows deslected events, as still being selected even though they are not and are not supposed to be (and aren’t). When you see me hover the mouse over the events, you see the graphical refresh updates accordingly.
Targeting Default Track Colours
And another thing that needs to be fixed with PLE integration, is PLE can’t target default preference set track colours. ie, whatever the default colour is for an audio track when it is added, the PLE cannot target it even if you have added that colour to the pallet of which you are using in the PLE script:
