Posted this in the cubase forum, just wanted to see if this is on the radar at all…
- It is beneficial to have more then one plugin on screen.
- It is also beneficial to dock plugins windows.
The best choice is the option to do both simultaneously. Like protools current implementation.
Why is docking plugin windows important?
I have 5 screens on my mix rig. TV on the wall up high, three LCDs across the middle, one touch LCD in front of me. In Nuendo 5, Cubase 6’s current implementation every plugin remembers its last location on screen, requires me to drag every plugin to the touch screen. I installed MOOM, a mac windows manager that lets you move windows by key command, but there is an odd caveat with windows that have always on top enabled. You mustn’t click the white plugin window header, but just below it or it won’t move the window. Also, always on top is remembered by plugins. So if you ever had the preference set to make all plugins always on top now you have to disable the preference, load every plugin, right click and uncheck always on top.
Most of the time, I want EVERY PLUGIN to just appear in the same location, on the touch screen. I don’t wanna d1ck around with window management apps, key commands, always on top, plugin window remembering “things”, dragging windows around, etc.
Protools does it, Cubendo should have a preference too.
