What non-standard, akward, tedious, conspicuously absent or otherwise disadvantageous characteristics of this DAW would you change were it in your power?
What’s been bugging me the most recently:
Why the heck are there no custom Tool Modifiers? What I wouldn’t give to add one that would simply make Shift+ Click erase with the Select or Draw tool. What Shift+Click currently does is quite useless by comparison. Why can’t the Shift key on it’s own be used as a Select Tool modifier? (Why are there no Draw tool modifiers at all?? Why is there a Color Tool modifier but no Draw Tool modifier?!? ) Or even better, if I could configure the mouse/Tools so that a right click would delete a midi note with the draw tool. Speaking of the mouse and all the things that it COULD do, if only…
The only thing the right mouse button is good for in Cubase is accessing a tool list(which you can access by moving the mouse up a few inches on your screen, lol). Why are there no Key Commands or tool modifiers at all that involve the right mouse button? It’s a handy little button! I type thousands of words a day and have to be all over a keyboard at a shell prompt all day long at work. Sometimes I like to just casually sketch out parts in a DAW’s piano roll(key editor) and don’t want to have to be all over the keyboard just to delete or modify a tool. There’s a whole other button there Cubase really isn’t using(not to mention the many other buttons mice can and do have these days).
Am I crazy or is Cubase woefully inadequate for these fundamental things(Tool Modifier customization, mouse functionality)?
