Of course but in my case, I’m a composer first, mixer second. I can’t escape the mouse and keyboard for multiple tasks. I have a bunch of keycommands that locks my hand to the keyboard when editing. I can’t escape the mouse for warping duties, scroll wheel navigation and zooms and other macro buttons located directly on my mouse. It’s become second nature.
My left hand is the one that will jump from the keyboard to the Console 1 for quick EQs, gates, compression etc… I wanted to make sure the Console 1 would follow mouse track selections.
In the end I wish Steinberg would release an upgraded CC121 with a more complete layout of the native Cubase channel strip. After all it has pretty much the same fonctions built in.
Thanks guys, the Console 1 is on route and will give it a shot.
