There is no need to turn a feature request as straight forward as allowing more of what is already a core feature in all DAWs, into an unnecessary, adversarial posturing against producers of a particular genre of music.
And there are more than a few users of Cubase around the world that create electronic-oriented music. Many of them signed artists who make their living at it.
Cubase has been chock full of MIDI features for decades.
Performance, design and ergonomics haven’t been harmed in any of the other DAWs that support unlimited inserts.
I voted no to a plugin chainer because I want to see at a glance what’s in my inserts. And I don’t want another layer of abstraction for automation. And because I feel it’s a Rube Goldberg, awkward design, where only a simple solution is needed.
I’d be fine if the mix console defaulted to showing exactly 8 inserts, as it does now, but could be increased upon demand – for those who don’t want to see a visual change.
