I love Cubase for many reasons. But I hate how it handles automation.
-It needs simple trim fonction like Pro Tools or reaper. Maybe the range tool could be improved as a trim tool.;
-For better visibility, coloring the section below the automation line, cause some track color are hard to see...;
-automation lane on the same track as the audio or midi part.
-moving a node with the select tool should erase other existing nodes instead of being trapped.
