Toggle Functionality for "Time Warp / Warp Grid" Tool

Dear Cubase Development Team,

I hope this message finds you well. I am a dedicated user of Cubase, and I have a small but important feature request regarding the “Time Warp / Warp Grid” tool in both the Key Editor and Project Window.

Currently, when I click on a vertical line with the “Time Warp / Warp Grid” tool, there is a delay before the line starts to follow my pointer. Specifically, after clicking and holding the button pressed, I must move the pointer slightly before seeing any change in the vertical line’s position.
(line starts to follow along only when I move my pointer a bit)

I kindly request the addition of a toggle option in Cubase that allows users to disable this delay functionality. This feature would greatly enhance the precision and efficiency of editing within the program.

In summary, my feature request is as follows:

Feature Request:
Please implement a toggle option in Cubase that allows users to disable the delay functionality when using the “Time Warp / Warp Grid” tool. This will provide users with more immediate and precise control over vertical line adjustments.


  • Enhanced user experience: Users can choose their preferred editing behavior.
  • Improved workflow: Faster and editing for those who prefer immediate responsiveness.
  • Greater flexibility: Cubase becomes even more adaptable to individual editing styles.

I believe that this feature would be a valuable addition to Cubase, improving the user experience and workflow for many users who rely on precise timing adjustments. Thank you for considering this request, and I look forward to seeing the continued evolution of Cubase.



P.S. OpenAI’s ChatGPT version 3.5 helped me compose this feature request.
