i have some suggestions i would love to hear some feedback on…especially from someone from steinberg.
i had posted this before but in the wrong place in the forum… sorry 'bout that but there was a problem w/ my log-in codes.
there is a need for a much better notebook. the current note pad is much too small. i would like to see a notepad that is easily size-able, offered some basic music notation (bar lines, repeat sign, basic rhythm notation…so you could make a basic chord chart) and somehow was accessible even if cubase wasn’t open. the great thing about cubase is the almost limitless musical potential…but that means things get pretty complex pretty fast and keeping up with the ins and outs of a project can be very difficult day to day let alone coming back to a project after a period of time.
i would like to have many more color choices available. 16 is not enough for most of my projects. furthermore, it would be very helpful if there was a better visual way to identify midi control tracks…something that at a glance you could tell if is a ‘send’ track’ or an fx track or any other grouping of things that you might be controlling by midi…i find myself doing more a more midi controls of parameters of the vst instruments and effects and it is very confusing to see many control lanes that look exactly alike. one solution might be for the background color of the track be different
i think there needs to be a glossary of the warning screens you might get as part of the basic operation manual. the glossary would include a deeper, clearer description of what the warning is about and something about what to do about it.
4 is it possible for cubase to follow what you use and don’t use in the program and then offer possible workspace designs based on that data. so the things you use most are large and obvious and thing u never use become smaller and out of the way…i never use half the things in the toolbar. furthermore i never use major sections of cubase like the scoring sections…maybe those don’t even have to be loaded in when i boot up cubase but if i need them some square is clicked and cubase reboots with that option…a leaner meaner cubase?
