I love Cubase! My only major issue is that working in compound meters is a very frustrating deal. It essentially doesn’t do proper 6/8, 9/8 or 12/8 (compound meters). You have to do funny time consuming workarounds. Changes would need to happen in the tempo track as well as in the midi editor.
Tempo Track- Should have the ability to choose what the beat is i.e. quarter, dotted quarter, dotted eighth, eigth
Midi editor- should reflect the proper beat and subdivision when using a compound meter
For tempo track this means you can have
as opposed to a fixed quarter=120 or eight note=120
This would give the ability to easily do things like go from 12/8 to 4/4 where it will go from dotted quarter=100 to quarter=100 thus the pulse of the beat never changes but the subdivisions do.
The Midi editor grid also should reflect the proper beat of compound meter being a dotted value. So, when in 6/8 There should be two thick beat lines with three subdivision lines, as opposed to the current 3 thick beat lines with 2 subdivions which is not the universally accepted 6/8. This should happen automatic with compound meters but with the ability to change things manually in place.
I’ve seen this brought up in the forum usually in regards to just tempo. But it’s more than just that. Essentially, Cubase doesn’t not support the proper display and input of compound meters which is very common in composition.
Thanks for the read and please forgive if I’ve missed something!
