Recently updated from C9 to C12 and I’m noticing more and more little issues in the Score Editor.
I’ve already made a posts about Tempo Track Editor lagginess if modified while the Score Editor is open; and the issue of ‘Hide Stems/Rests’ being checked randomly for certain tracks.
But I thought I’d start a thread to perhaps collate any further observations I make.
These are all issues that I did not have in Cubase 9…
Something I’ve been noticing since the upgrade is a slight - but really problematic - lagginess when entering or selecting notes on a stave.
If I position a note on the stave using the mouse, waiting til I hear the pitch I need, and then release the mouse button to place it: that moment of releasing the mouse button would instantly drop the note where it is at that moment - in Cubase 9. Now in C12 I notice that for a fraction of a second AFTER releasing the button, any fractional mouse movement will still move the note. I find that I’ll choose a note position/pitch release the mouse button then suddenly hear the pitch shift to a nearby note, and the note will be pitched wrongly on the stave.
Perhaps similarly, I notice that if I select a group of notes on a stave, if I release the mouse button IMMEDIATELY after the rectangle of selection covers the notes I need, the notes most recently taken within that rectangle may not actually be selected.
These are I guess relatively minor problems, and I guess most people would not follow such a clunky note entry method, but it’s really becoming a bit of an obstacle to my workflow. Any ideas what I can do about this?
Also, I was very happy that this latest C12 maintenance update returned mousewheel/vertical-scroll functionality to the Score Editor. It is in fact the redress that allowed me to finally upgrade from C9.
But the vertical scroll speed is just too fast!
I generally have a full score layout in the editor, and it seems just a small movement of the mousewheel will fling me from the double basses right up to the piccolo! If I want to scroll up just a few staves it is impossible.
Can anything be done about this?
