I have just spent some time watching the training videos on the new Cubase 7. What is the big deal with the mixer ?
Tell me if I have missed something somewhere. I have been waiting for improvements to the track window of Cubase.
Being able to show/hide tracks
Able to have the automation lane show ON TOP of the sound file or midi information
Vari Audio only analyzing the part of the track instead of having to wait for the entire audio file before being able to make pitch adjustments
A “NOTES” track to be used sort of like a marker track, in that CHORD SYMBOLS or notes could be manually input at my own discretion
I personally don’t think there was anything wrong with the other mixer. Why all the focus on improvements to a mixer? If we wanted a fancy mixer we could use an external mixer. The work is done in the track window in a DAW. Files are imported and dragged into the window, automation is input, mixing is done there by clicking on the automation lanes…
For so long now I have waited for changes to THIS WINDOW…this is what makes Cubase more cumbersome to use, not the mixer console…and what is the point with needing to search for tracks? The left-right buttons on the mixer to move tracks to the left or right? Why? What’s the point…just link them forever to the track list and let them be in that order.
What have they done to improve having to have tons of plug-in windows open…and then have to be closed…
All these things are slow-downs for workflow. The mixer being the way it was did not slow down workflow.
What effects the workflow is the TRACKS WINDOW. And, opening and closing all those lanes is such a waste of time…why can’t they give us the ability to put the automation ON TOP OF THE WAVEFORM OR MIDI ? I do not understand this one. Isn’t Cubase the only DAW on the market left that forces us to have to open sub-lanes to see the automation?
So, tell me what I have missed? Did I not find the right tutorial that shows me they have added these changes that would REALLY help actual workflow.
