I understand and agree that we don’t want to copy Ableton’s session view, but in my opinion Cubase / Nuendo should develop the arranger track concept and make sure you can record live audio and midi while doing a performance.
We can change sections but not record and it’s really weird and limiting.
I don’t intend to change the linearity of the sequencer but at least not limit someone’s composition process.
I got to use Cubase on Atari and I saw some utilities like Phrase Synthesizer or Build Group Tracks that were performance oriented disappear. I have never had the opportunity to try the Styletrax in the video below but this also seems like a similar tool to me.
If you also lack progress in the arranger track i ask you to vote on this post.
