Film Music tools: Streamers, Punchers and Flutters

Postby dioman_leikari » Tue Oct 08, 2013 1:37 pm

Dear Staff,

I switched to Cubase 7 from Logic Pro and DP8 and I would love to find in the future in Cubase a little tool that in Film Music Scoring Composers usually use while they compose or direct the Orchestra during the Scoring Session.

In DP8 they are called "Streamers, Punchers and Flutters" leaded by Markers the Composer places one the Marker Track.

This feature was created by Auricle in Los Angeles and the same feature was included later in DP8 and Logic Pro.

You will find attached a screen shot I took in order to show you what I mean exactly.

They would be very useful both during the composition process and in the Scoring Session as well for the Orchestra.

I knew there was something similar in Nuendo, but it would be great find a specific tool for Film Music in Cubase.

Thanks million!

I would also love to see such new, composer oriented, tools in the next version of Cubase.

Damn, I musta been living under a rock all these years. That's absolutely -wonderful-.

Just out of curiosity: what made you switch to Cubase? To avoid diluting this topic, I'd be much obliged if you would PM me with any thoughts you'd care to share.

Best,

Bump!

I think this is a very important feature request, please, a little more support from composers would be great.

+1 I prefer Cubase for certain things but it isn't great for film. DP7 is what I still use for that.
Cubase would knock the other DAW out of the game if they offered these requested features

And some other DP features too.

I wonder if Steinberg even considers DP a competitor.

Self-serving statement #317...

This is a great idea. However...

I have been -very- frustrated with Nuendo since day 1 for not providing a clear marketing message. 'Post' doesn't mean much to me. I believe that SB has simply divvied up features based on how easy it was to code rather than functional differences. Which is to say...

I think Nuendo should be re-branded for 'film work'. And this kind of idea... as wonderful as it is... should be moved over there... and some features in Nuendo which are directly 'music mixing' related, should be included in Cubase.

I understand this is not a popular POV as 'video' is so popular in Cubase and the price break so high, but the differentiation between the two products for all practical purposes is: music production v. multi-media production and this is a multi-media feature for sure.

OR, as I've 'blue skied' many times, there should be no 'Nuendo'... just 5 or 6 price 'levels' of Cubase (as Adobe does it), with something like this in price level 5 or 6.

I rarely post with such a tone, but this is utter nonsense.

Their marketing message is probably clear to the people they are marketing to.

You can download the Nuendo trial yourself and spend an hour looking it over, browse the manual and and then you'll see what it's all about. Then, you can share what you learned with all the folks who are curious too.

Perhaps.

To paraphrase Morpheus, perhaps Cubase/Nuendo is exactly where it should be and cannot be anywhere else. Maybe they know who exactly they are selling to and the feature sets of both programs are finely-tuned based on exhaustive market research as to the state of the music/film biz.

Which is kinda frightening if ya think about it. :D I prefer to delude myself into thinking that what I wrote does make sense. Although they write great code, their choice of features and implementations are sometimes -not- well thought out. Or, again, they could be laughing all the way to the bank.

As I said, this F/R is jaw-dropping =fantastic= and I don't want to go o/t any more except to say that -all- my rants... which some find 'bad' in some way are predicated on the constant mantra from SB over the years: small company. very limited resources. huge legacy code base.
