I’m still waiting for a way to assign multiple parameters to a single controller, ala Ableton Live Macro/ FL Patcher/ Reason Combinator. This will bring a huge improvement to complex sound design tasks that are not possible otherwise. All of the 3rd party VST chainers just don’t quite cut it, in my experience.
My vision is that Cubase will make a new type of track, let’s just say a “Rack Control.” This will be available as both instruments and insert FX. It will have the ability to chain different plug-ins together, and have macro controls to assign to multiple parameters.
On top of that, it will also accelerate the workflow by allowing users to stack different chains together (16 to be precise, as we have 16 inserts) This will be very useful because you can use 1 Rack Control for widening, and another for boosting bass, for example.
These are not new ideas I just invented, but they have been around for a very long time (since 2005, Reason 3). I just feel like it’s about time Cubase needs to have this feature if they want to call their product “sublime in every sense of the word.”
