This would be a big things for many people from the Rock / Metal - crowd (like me).
This is NOT swing or groove quantization, what I want is something like the "humanize" function BFD 3 has, with a few additions (I prefer more complete FRs, so here the usual braindump):
1. Humanize velocity
2. Humanize timing
In addition to that:
a) Same timing offsets for all tracks (for a common feeling)
b) Also ADDITIONAL (!) humanizations so the tracks are not TOO common (like musicians in a band still deviate in their timing from each other)
Now the bonus stuff:
i) Humanize tuning (which would help a lot with natural instruments, but I would use it for synthesizers, too)
I often do the following thing:
1. Record drum pattern on keyboard
2. Quantize (my drum recording on keyboard is horrible)
3. Use BFD3 "humanize" function to make it sound real, big, amazing again (like one records vocals in a dead room to be able to add controlled, artificial reverb afterwards)
Now I would want:
a) Gain this ability for all my tracks, with a common feel
b) Don't have to record into BFD3, but use what Cubase offers
