The Cubase "WishList"

You're here : Cubase >The Laboratory

This page will give you the possibility to express yourself fully !

Cubase, like any other software is not perfect. There are bugs here and there and especially some functionalities that are still not established or that could be improved.

The only purpose of this page is thus to index the improvements wished by the Cubase users, in condition to not falling into a completely excentric way, like this : "I would like a plug-in that holds beers fresh" !

These improvements will be in a first time discussed, taken from the Mailing-List , but you will be able to propose also an improvement via the form which is in the bottom of this page.

In the same time, you can vote for the function that seems to you as a priority. Only one vote is possible...

Steinberg-France indicated to us to be able to send the informations of this page to Germany. Without this "promise", the page would not have any interest. So, you are listened, with you of knowing to benefit from it !

Réf 222 - An Audio to Midi trigger
I wish to have a trigger integrated in Cubase because I have to do with some drum tracks much or less well recorded and it is such a pain to mix !

Réf 220 - Importation of Monkey's Audio files
Working regularly at distance by Internet or by receiving CD / DVD, this format is an non-destructive solution for compressing files, very useful and on more, open source.

Réf 219 - Video with SX
When I use video with SX2 and Reason, as soon as I select the Reason window, the video window disappears. It is not convenient. In VST, the video window was separated from Cubase, you were able thus to work in Reason while watching the video.

Réf 218 - An audio signal at the end of the processings
Some processings, once started, can last up to several minutes. It would be useful to be able to configure a sound which Cubase would give forth at the end of those actions, so that the user wouldn't waste his time by doing some other things meanwhile.

Réf 217 - CPU consumption vumeter plug-in per plug-in
Having a possibility to know exactly the CPU consumption rate for each plug-in used in a project. For example, as an added column in "Plug-in Information" dialog which would indicate a percentage. It would be very useful during certain stages of your work when you wish to recover some ressources. And as this function would eventually use some ressources too, it should be possible to activate / deactivate it at will. Why not having then a particular visualization mode for this function track by track in the Mixer. Thus, you could see how each track takes up the ressources and you would have the possibility to manage these ressources much easily.

Réf 215 - Reintroducing Studio Module SysEx MIDI Librarian
The Studio Module is a tool for gathering and maintaining >setting in your MIDI Devices. >It performs this task by retrieving and sending out System Exlusive >data, which is a very loosely defined type of MIDI data that each >manufacture can utilise for their own purposes.

Réf 214 - Automatic adaptation of the Project length
In the menu Project / Project Setup, the field Length allows to define the project length. This option has a consequence on the Freeze lenght (among other things). This could be optimized if the length could stretch itself automatically when recording. Thus, you could define first a minimum length of 1 minute to start the project, and this length would fit progressively to the length of the longer Audio and Midi takes, or of the imported Audio files. This would also make it possible to optimize the Project Overview. Actually, if your record goes beyond the defined length, Cubase adds automatically 5 minutes for each outtake. It's too much. Some successive additions of 1 minute or even 30 seconds would be much more adapted.

Réf 213 - Storing some Mute presets
This function was existing with VST at page #72 of the manual :
Mute the tracks you want to mute
Hold Shift+Alt+Control and hit one of the function keys F2 to F11
To recall a preset, hold Alt+Control and hit the keys F2 to F12

Réf 212 - A subscription rather than a purchase
Considering the regular updates, and the feeling to be had, why not proposing Cubase in renting, as it is possible with Samplitude ? Then, the interested users would always have the last update without a surprise (for example, an update for SX2 just before the release of SX3).

Général-3843Voter pour


Réf 206 - "Freeze" automation for selected elements
A function cruely missing in most programs (except Pro Tools TDM !) is the possibility to "freeze" the status of a mixing configuration for the selected part of a song. for instance, we choose we want to freeze volumes (or pans, oe EQs, or plugins...) on N tracks and according to the selected range. This is capital for the first step of a mixing process.

TypeAvailable in versionVotes forTo vote for
Général-3967Voter pour


Réf 195 - Sorting tracks by name, group, MIDI output, channel,.etc or personal criteria
When we have more than 50 tracks, it would be faster to organise them rather than putting them in folder tracks and changes in one's organisation would be easier. A simple click on a column's header would be enough. It would also be interesting if the user could enter the names of sorting criteria himself, in special fields (5, for instance). For example : name, instrument, input, VSTi...

Général-4034Voter pour


Réf 194 - Importing of full video files with sound and images
In Vegas, Adobe Premiere and a lot of other audio/video programs, when you import a video, two tracks are generated : one for pictures and one for the sound. It would be nice if Cubase did the same. For the moment, the video track alone can be imported. It would also be nice if the pictures were bigger than the current maximum size.

Editeurs-4078Voter pour


Réf 192 - Volume Offset in the Inspector
In Cubase VST's inspector, there was a cursor which permitted to set the volume offset in order to balance the different volumes on each track. In SX 2, we only have a velocity setting. It would be interesting not to abandon this option.

Réf 189 - Possibility to insert logical operators into editors
The input transformer allows one to implement logical operators which remain active from the beginning to the the end of a song. The possibility to insert start and end instructions within a song would be nice. Example : we program a preset and at measure 10.1.3, we insert an event [Start preset "Double up by one fourth"]. Then, at measure 20, we insert [End preset "Double up by one fourth"]...

Réf 186 - Automation Parts
Automation events should be organized in parts the way other events are. This would allow us to cut and paste them and to move them along with the rest of a track when editing a selection range.

Réf 185 - Asterisk in the title bar of the project

Audio-3911Voter pour


Réf 183 - Automatic loading of a Rewire file
It would be nice if a project containing rewire tracks was saved with all rewire parameters along and if these parameters were loaded on opening the project. This way, we would load our Cubase Project and the corresponding Rewire Project would be automatically loaded within another application without the need to do it manually.

Réf 180 - Possibility to play audio files when using the Clean-Up function
The clean-up function allows one to automatically erase unused files when they aren't referenced in any Cubase Project. It would be convenient to have a "Play File" button at disposal in order to listen to the (sometimes numerous) files listed there, in order to know exactly what we're going to erase.

Réf 176 - Possibility to cancel all the actions in an Editor

Réf 174 - Optimizing the mouse wheel on certain values in the Inspector
Well, Feed, do you have a better title ? (Feed found it !). In the Inspector, for a Midi track for example, there are some parameters like the velocity compression which are displayed as fractions. Now, if the mouse wheel allows to vary the left number, it appears to be on another hand completely useless on the right one !

Réf 172 - Pool "à la" Pro Tools

Réf 169 - A function of Project diagnostics and description
A diagnostic and description in .txt mode of all the elements being in the Project, description of the system, CPU, display card, soundcard, RAM, etc, description of each track with the plug-ins, eq and VST-i used. Name and path of the files and samples used, etc. This would allow us to be given advice in case of a problem or when rebuilding a complex project that you didn't succeed in doing it again.

Réf 167 - Saving a user Event Colors configuration
The "Event Colors Configuration" dialog box contains two icons showing a floppy disk. This type of icon usually being used for saving/loading, you are done because those two icons are used to define the default colors and to recall them. It would be better to be able to save this setting in a file as for the keyboard shortcuts, etc.

Réf 165 - No deletion of the Edit and Freeze files
When you use the Clean Up function of the File menu, this one compares the content of the project folder (as well as the subfolders) with the Pool and deletes all the unreferenced files in the Pool. Now, the files being in the Edit and Freeze folders aren't in the Pool, then they are deleted when using the function ! To be fixed !

Réf 152 - "E" point at the end of an Audio file
We have a "Q" point at the beginning of Audio files. A similar point placed at the end of the file would enable to time-stretch Events easier and quicker. We could then set the end of the audio Clip by pulling the right bottom handle with the Time Stretch tool, the "E" point would be the wedge point

Réf 150 - Midi Thru per track
To be able to set the Midi Thru for each track to avoid MIDI data loops when we play on a synth to program a track assigned to a sound of this synth. To be able to turn Midi Thru off for a specific track would end the problem for devices which don't have LOCAL setting

Réf 144 - Saving personal settings inside the USB dongle
Would it be possible for Steinberg to create a dongle with a memory allowing to store all user preferences and shortcuts ? It would be very handy for those working on several machines or just when reinstalling. We'd just have to plug the key in and roll ! We would go back to our usual environment

Réf 141 - Snap-Shot function for the mixer

Réf 138 - Logical Edit : having the same note-length format as in other editors
In all the editors, note lengths are expressed in bars/beats/semiquavers/tics. In the Logical Editor, when you choose to filter Notes AND lengths, the displayed format is "0.0000" or "0".

Réf 134 - "Post-Automation" Fader
After you have cautiously set your automation curves, when you realize that the overall level for one or more tracks is not right, the only two ways you change that without touching your curves is either selecting the whole curve to move it up or down (not very convenient) or routing each track to as many group channels as needed (not handy either). The best would be to have a mini-fader (-64/+64, for instance) for each automation sub-track

Réf 128 - Best implementation of NRPN
Having the possibility of writing NRPN automation curves as if they were simple MIDI controllers. And, as a consequence, the recording of button movements on a synth which only sends NRPN would be detected as they are, not as the succession of 3 controllers (number 98 and 99 for the parameter, number 6 for the value).

Réf 83 - The ability to organise DirectX plug-ins like in Wavelab
WaveLab has a plug-ins organiser. Here you can make folders and put plug-ins in them, whether they are VST or DirectX, it doesn't matter. In Cubase, you can only make folders for the VST plugins

Réf 79 - To be able to send a score by e-mail
When we print or save a score, it would be interesting to be able to save in an "e-mailable" format for a send to a friend, a musician, or to the SACEM, because one could bet that it would be soon possible to make a deposit of a song by e-mail

Réf 71 - To be able to mute audio tracks in the Audio Editor
When we work in the Audio Editor, when the function "By output" is selected, it would be kind to have the possibility to mute each audio track, without going back to the Arrange window or without being obliged to mute each segment one after one, during an Audio setting a little complex, for example. Maybe to be able to mute by clicking on the tracks numbers at the left of the window ?

Réf 58 - Option "Apply to all tracks" for the functions "Insert..." and "Cut at the locators"
When we want to insert or delete measures, it doesn't work on muted tracks. Now, it appears often that these tracks are just temporarily muted (witness tracks, etc.). So, we must "demute" them before applying the function "Insert / Cut at the locators", then mute them again, after well memorised what were those tracks... An option "Apply to all tracks" should be welcome

Réf 48 - MIDI effects and MIDI arpegiator modules
Make the commands less cryptic (more musical) so one does not have to reach for the manual and can work much faster. Example: delay by an eight note. Example: decrease velocity of echo by x%. Etc. These are very easy to implement, they're basically text change in the code

Réf 37 - A main volume on Folder Tracks
It would be kind to be able to manage a main volume on certain Midi tracks, like a subgroup. As the mute function of a folder track, we could act on the volume of several MIDI tracks at the same time, useful for strings or horns

Réf 18 - Names of tracks
When you write a " glissendo " in part of Harp, often this one starts from the low stave and arrives at the high stave. For that you use the tool " Line " included in the pallet of symbols " Lines and Trills ", " to link " the lowest note to the highest note, the others being masked (you hear them without seeing them). That said, in automatic formatting, the line " being attached " to one or the other of the staves, the two staves of Harp take a spacing too much important, you must correct after. It would be interesting to create automatically a graphic tool which link two notes by a line, this one "being regulated" with the notes, such as the links of phrasing. That would be useful for slipped of trombone, violin, etc...

Réf 16 - A metronome for musician !
The current metronome does not know ternary signatures: For him, 12/8 is a bar of 12 steps. Hard with the Transport bar where you are obliged to edit a specific Midi track to get the clic and with the editors where it becomes a real catastrophe. The ideal would be to have an editor of metronome! You choose the bar, you put accents where there must be, and the metronome plays this " Pattern ". At the most, you even could have an additional column in Master Track list, thanks to which you could choose his preset.

Your contribution to Cubase

Maybe do you dream of a new function in Cubase ? By following the "Contact" link at the top of this page, you can add your request to this page, for little that it is reasonable. With a little chance, it will allure many other Cubase users and Steinberg will establish it in a forthcoming version !
