At some time, not sure when, the possibility to select a hardware input when adding an audio track insted of connecting to bus was added to cubase.
I can see the utility of this, but I prefer to use my busses, as the input/output list easily gets cluttered when adding several new inputs.
The “select hardware input”-list is also above the “connect to bus”-list, and as I have 32 channels of in-out, this makes for a lot of scrolling, and a lot of un-needed information. I also sometimes make a mistake, and create new buses by accident.
So, is there some way to remove this option? Would really make things easier.
