I love Cubase to death, but the thing that probably annoys me the most about it, is how it handles plugin windows (I’m especially talking about plugin windows of VST instruments e.g. Kontakt, Omnisphere etc.).
In every other DAW I tried it works like this:
- The plugin window always opens AT THE EXACT SAME PLACE. In Cubase on the other hand this is a freaking nightmare, especially if you use more than 1 monitor. Here plugins open all over the place, sometimes on monitor 1, sometimes on monitor 2, sometimes the plugin is barely on the screen at all and only 1/3 is actually showing
- Plus all other DAW’s provide an option to sync the plugin window to the currently selected track. So if I select my Violins 1 track I will see the Kontakt 5 instance with my Violins patch loaded, if I select my Flute track I will see the Kontakt 5 instance with my Flute patch loaded, etc…
This seems like a pretty easy thing to do, so please consider it!
