For those of us who do a lot of composing in Nuendo, CC1-Modulation and CC11-Expression are some of our most important parameters. Yet, they are buried as deep as possible in the automation parameters menu. Is there a way to customize this menu that I haven’t found??
This seems silly to me, and it makes things extremely tedious when you have to traverse through these menus every time you want to change automation for a virtual instrument track. Perhaps I am going about this in an unintended way, since I am coming to Nuendo from Pro Tools.
All seasoned Nuendo-users feel the same as you do. As a workaround it’s quite common to rely on the (equally well-hidden) “Reveal Parameter on Write” option that’s available in the Automation Panel. Quick’n’dirty solution for immediate access.
But there are two ways of managing Controller data in Nuendo.
You can indeed use the automation lanes for this kind of data but Controllers can also be managed using the controller lanes of the MIDI editor, found below the note events display in the Key editor, Drum editor etc… using this method the controller data is more immediately accessible in one simple menu when clicking on an existing lane or adding a new lane.
