This topic drives me crazy. Here’s why, it is soooooooooo much faster creative inspiring and easy to have a smarter input note delete note system, you can zip around the piano roll at lightning speed trying out different note placements, it’s great for experimentation and would benefit everyone interested in speeding up there creative workflow.
the drum editor already has this press once place press again delete I am okay keeping things the same but adding a new smart tool or allowing some customization as to how the pencil tool works.
For example why not just allow that when using the select tool = arrow tool double click enters note double click delete note, it is so much faster and inspiring than switching between draw and erase tools.
I personally know many programmer type electronic artists= meaning they do most of there work inputing notes with a mouse, that do not use cubase only for this reason. We call it the right clicky finicky tool switching key editor.
What really effects me is how easy this could be implemented cubase is the absolute only daw that has not improved this.
Most people using cubase who have not explred other DAWS in depth and written with them in a more mouse programming style (not play it in first then edit) but all notes inserted and programmed with a mouse and keyboard, have no idea what they are missing.
especially if you are using a laptop and trackpad to get ideas down before hitting the main studio.
I am hoping steinberg implement this at some point.
