Hi. I’m new to Cubase - still demoing Elements 11 - and saw potential for improvement. Maybe it’s been changed and I can’t find it. I searched the forum and this issue was present in Cubase 8 so I’m just making sure it’s fixed. If not, I request that it is.
That is saving timeline zoom settings with the project. When I save a template or open a project, my timeline is not how I left it. Also, some have reported that bars-beats linear and time linear aren’t saved with the project either, as well as snap settings. I feel like this is something that should be selectable in the project settings.
If this is possible, please let me know. I’m looking for a DAW that has a great timeline and these features would definitely make the timeline great.
Of course, no attempt at legislation would be complete without a piggyback clause. For me, that’s the reversed mouse wheel scroll in the timeline. Pulling down with Shift+mousewheel on Windows 10 to scroll earlier in the timeline definitely feels backwards. I’m working around it but a simple tick box would be great.
One final thing. This might be tricky to implement but, even with bars beats linear, changing the time signature shifts the loop position. I guess the locators are bound to beats instead of bars. So, say I have m9-17 looped in 4/4. When I change to 6/8, the locator positions still say 126.96.36.199, 188.8.131.52 when in fact, the locators are now at 184.108.40.206 and 220.127.116.11 and the text fields don’t update unless I move them. This definitely seems strange. It would be better that the locators stick to their bar positions regardless of time signature. An 8 bar loop remains 8 bars regardless of time signature.
Like I said, this whole timeline thing is why I’m shopping for DAWs. Someone has to get it right. Maybe I think differently but I feel like this is imperative for rehearsal and writing.
