First, I think it will be useful to have the pool in the right panel. This way is more accesible and you can have it stick in a side. The problem of a floating window is that… is floating And it usually gets lost, like the channel edit window (which I would like to have always visible).
- Including MIDI will be useful, especially for the drag and drop feauture, combined with the shared copy. This way you could save ideas into the Pool and then drag and drop to the tracks as shared copy.
- Setting several “actual” folders. I wish I have a folder for recordings, another for sound design, another for bouncings… Currently you can create folders, but they’re not in the real folder structure.
- Working with the pool out of Cubase. Currently, the pool and the media folder are not “linked”. It will be a nice option, especially to organize files into folders and for deleting stuff.
And my final thoughts. Pool and Media should work together. Maybe Steinberg should think about how to reinvent them in order to work better. One thing I don’t like is that if you start trying things and deleting from the project, the files are still copied there, ocupying space, and that working with that is a bit obscure. It should be easier. Of course, if you have any advice or suggestion to improve my workflow, please tell me.
