Just wondered if it was possible to set cubase to display the audio waveform post plugins and eq?
For example, i’ll import a vocal file but would like the main window or the editing window to display what the wave form looks like after i’ve added plugins etc.
Is this possible?
If a feature like this was present and enabled, Cubase would have to process the audio every time you added a plugin, or every time you changed a parameter in said plugin. This would waste a lot of time (especially if real-time processing was used) and sometimes give inaccurate results (depending on if the plugin required real-time processing).
If you want the resultant waveform post plugins, ether:
A “update waveform render” button would be a good addition.
So you could fiddle with stuff and then have a visual of what you’ve ended up with and how far the peaks have been brought down etc.
It would be a totally ridiculous addition to me, and I hope Steinberg won’t put any resources into developing something like it. If I want visual results, I’ll start a visual line of work. My ears couldn’t care less if there’s a DC signal on screen or a 440 Hz sinus.
