And, not only is there need for much better documentation, there’s also need for Usage Examples. The Operation Manual’s sections on these topics is not clear; it’s overly concise and lacking details or usage examples, hence, for me and I think others, these parts of Cubase remain largely unexplored and unused. Without the threads on the forum there’s no way I’d have learned to use these items at all, and, I’ve found this disappointing.
Old MIDI programs, like Cakewalk, Seq. Plus, Sonar, had built-in “transforms” that manipulated MIDI data in ways that PLE and related Cubase editors on should be able to easily do, but rather than providing useful examples and expanded documentation, we’re expected to build it ourselves and attempt to parse these questions on the forums and elsewhere.
I wouldn’t mind taking each and every function in the PLE and attempting to create some kind of User-created documentation in this thread featuring use examples. Is there not a Cubase Wiki? If not, there should be.
In the Steinberg back offices there must be some documentation on these things and more should be released if possible.
