While I think Cubase has come leaps and bounds to catch up with other manufacturers in terms of it’s automation functionality, there are a few niggling points that would really help with the overall experience in my humble opinion:
- Would it be possible to make ANY tool acceptable as a starting point for inputting automation nodes? I find the fact that I have to choose the pencil tool, before I can input a point, incredibly irritating, merely hovering over the automation line should be enough for me to input a point.
2.Would it be possible to have only the actual lanes that contain automation as a filter option? When a project starts to get very automation heavy, the fact that the automation always defaults to volume and mute makes scrolling through to find the recently recorded automation, time consuming and inefficient; I would like an option to SHOW ALL AUTOMATION [Selected Tracks] as a one click drop down option/key command, this could be scaled to include selected tracks only, so very quickly, automation across mutliple tracks could be edited and viewed.
- This would also tie in nicely with the ability to select and edit multiple Automation lanes simultaneously, much like folder tracks.
