A feature I think would be handy is the ability to select certain faders in the mixer to lock to the right or left of the screen like in Cubase 7's mixer. At least for me, there's tracks I like to always have control over, and to have to swipe around constant gets time consuming.
Another feature I think would be nice is the ability to have the edit settings for a track on an accessible page (I.e. EQ, sends, inserts, routing) just like the edit track settings in Cubase. So if I'm away from my system and recording, and I want to turn down the reverb on a send, I can do so in Cubase IC Pro
The most obvious use for IC Pro is as a remote when tracking away from one's DAW.
There are better MIDI controllers (ie, requests for a keyboard, etc).
It will never match the editing one can do on a computer screen (requests for waveform edit capabilities, etc)
But as a remote? Sweet.
Channel control would allow tweaking sends, EQ, etc. when tracking (as stated).
Locking faders would allow easy tweaks to mix and levels when at the mic - in my case Control Room (my personal headphones come off CR Monitor 4).
