It’s so difficult to work with, cause you can’t fine move, you can’t see values to match points, and you cant just select a bit and drag that section,
The clip gain feature is so bad, honestly, it’s actually much easier to just chop up the audio and use the master horizontal clip gain on each one.
Ok so let’s say i have an 8 bar audio file and i want to manually even it out… In Cubase, i can only do straight lines…so it’s very difficult to just raise or lower a section of audio unless it’s split and i use the master gain for the clip.
It’s so hard to explain in text but I hope people get what I mean. I’ll try once more… ok so an example - say i have the starting gain value, i do a dip, i see no value for the dip, or location, and NO snapping option at all either, and if i want to do a straight drop without ramp time, i have to add multiple dots but i can’t math them precisely anyway or then go back to exactly where it was when the dip is over… It’s unruly and completely unergonomic… I don’t really understand how anyone would use this feature.
If i am doing it wrong, and i CAN highlight a section of a bigger audio file and just quickly make that louder or softer and dots are placed at appropriate borders, as well as being bale to be fine tuned, please tell me, as i have searched you tube and forums for hours to try and find a way to do it, and the only way i can see is like every other daw, to chop up the audio.
I will make this one simple to explain how i “think it should be done”… If steinberg want to see how clip gain is done, copy the way pro tools does it exactly. That’s actually the reason I won’t leave that DAW for cubase, because i simply can’t lose that amazing clip gain feature. It’s sped up my volume editing 100 fold over any other DAW.
Again, if i am missing something, and cubase can do it the way PT does, i am all ears, and please accept my apology for that! But trust me i really have tried to find out everything I can about cubase clip gain!
