I have never found the advantage to Cubase in Windows doing windowing in an abnormal way, preventing users from dragging audio into VSTi’s like Superior Drummer, which invite us to drag audio into them. In Cubase, I put Superior Drummer on a track, open the Superior Drummer window, go to the Tracker tab. My audio file is waiting for me in the Windows File Explorer that’s behind Cubase. I click the Explorer tab in the Windows taskbar to raise Explorer so I can drag my audio, and in response, Cubase hides the Superior Drummer window from me, preventing me from producing music.
In contrast, my three other DAW’s simply allow me to drag audio from Explorer to Superior Drummer, without getting strange about it.
Can I upload a screen-capture to illustrate? No, because Cubase hides the Superior Drummer window once again when I raise the screen-capture software from behind Cubase.
My experience here is nothing like people in the Cubase promotional videos. They’re so happy, and they’re able to produce music. I am on death’s door, using my final time trying to publish music, and doing this instead.
