Swing/Quantize presets organizer

Or Plug-In Manager?

Sure, but lighter. Like track preset browsers.

Just bumping this thread again… do these threads even get checked by Steinberg personnel anyways?

Well, for sure the groove quantize settings need some kind of organisation. Groove quantize is an immensely powerful tool and having easy and concise access to our own groove presets is def needed. As it stands, it’s a bit of a mess; an oversight even.

Would love some kind of feedback in this respect. Slightly sloppy playing is one thing for many. Quantizing it back into perfect time is another step. But taking that and applying groove in various ways, along with velocity can take parts to whole new levels.

Sort it out (please) Steinberg. Other than that, very much loving 9.5… the rest of the midi editing tools are insanely cool…

and apparently its not for C10 … though it seems a so small request, I mean not a deep function, just a “folder” function :smiley: :laughing:

Funny part, look at how cubase Quantize menu looks here:

and that’s from 2016…
Why can’t I get my list to behave that way… :frowning:

wait…what? never saw this … Imma try this right now and see how it behaves in my C9.5

edit: No luck, it’s still a vertical list we cant even scroll with the mouse wheel … HOW ******* ANNOYING !!! At least on the video you linked you can see all your presets without scrolling, how can STEINBERG skip managing those lists??? Isn’t groove templates something used a lot in music making? Every DAWs are playing the “groove templete/ shuffle” card. With Cubase, 1-you gotta process them yourself (download or create, then list them one by one) 2-you gotta click that down arrow many times to see the list if you got more than 10 user quantize presets ???

DAMN Steinberg DO SOMETHING (and not a 99€ small update like that G.A.5) !!!

That’s interesting. I’ve always accessed the Quantize Presets from the drop-down menu in the Toolbar - which as we know shows them as a single long list. But in the video they’re accessing the Presets from the Inspector in the Key Editor which does indeed let you see them all at once. Too bad there is no Quantize Tab in the Project Window, just the editors.

Sadly it doesnt behave like that in C9.5 and C10 … we still have that one list, with an arrow to scroll one line at a time… a real pain in the A !!!

“dreaaaaaam iiiis myyyyy realiiiiityyyyy” LOL

No, this really does exist in C10, didn’t check C9.5 but I will. Problem is you can only access it via the Inspector which is where I’m least likely to need it. :frowning:

I know (I do use quantise with inspector, especially when in lower zone) but I doesn’t work on C9.5, but can you confirm it does in C10… I mean that the menu is showing more than 1 column.

I just checked the versions back to 8.5 and they all show the Presets as a table from the Inspector.

Seems pretty odd that they’d use the table format in one place and that horrible list in another. Why wouldn’t they use the table everywhere once they figured it out.

That’s a shame, cause I do believe it’s not a difficult programming skills they need here.
At least the table format is the least expected…nad something like “plugins manager” would be great, creating folders etc (like I said in the 1st post)

That plus the price of an update like the GA5 one (cause its not GA5 for real, its GA 4.5 and you pay 99€ for solo layers button, decompose function and some kits :question: :question: :question: ) and I think Steinberg is ruining all in front of their pairs (Ableton Live being now a reference in many pro music makers).

And that should be all over the place. The GUI for managing these lists of presets should be consistent everywhere. Compare Plugin Manager where folders & list of plugs can be managed in a flexible manner. Then look at the Logical Editor where presets can also be kept in folders, except you need to use the OS to create and populate those folders. And then Quantize presets are all thrown together. These should all be standardized to use the exact same interface.

+1 makes sense
