Workflow aside (each DAW has it’s own strengths and each user has their own preferences), I feel Cubase has the richest feature set and covers more bases than any other audio program. But… there are glaring issues that still prevent Cubase from being MY all-in-one solution.
1. Inability to reorder Mixconsole tracks independently from the Arrange window.
Everyone wants this, and they’ve wanted it forever.
2. No Mixconsole Undo.
Make it optional, make it separate from the arrange window undo, make it happen.
3. Nasty Mixconsole GUI.
Improve visual track separation in the fader section, find an answer to the hover button issues most everyone hates. Maybe even strive for some visual consistency between the different windows/features. Call me crazy.
4. Mouse scrolling in Mixconsole changes parameters.
Just make it an option you can turn on/off. I understand some people might dig that workflow, but for me it’s a deal breaker when it’s combined with the lack of mixer undo. I’d rather be able to just scroll through the tracks fearlessly without the threat of changing any values. If there’s already a way to do this, please let me know.
5. No multi-track audio warp in the Arrange window.
In addition to the sample editor, add the ability to make edits directly to the audio regions. This makes time correction edits across tracks so much easier.
- Stereo to mono tracks and vice versa.
Generally super useful.
Cubase is already great, but it could be even better - at least for me. Now that these ground breaking ideas have been unleashed on the world, I fully expect Steinberg to implement all of these changes by the next update. Cheers.
