...and we talk about all these console plugins like NLS, Satson, but the Cubase mixer is really the real deal (I have not used it like that yet) but with the gate, and tape... you can kind of get into that control surface/mix with the ears sort of thing, get pretty far without pulling up a plugin. That option is very nice. . . . I love the idea of hard-wiring the entire strip to a control surface, very interesting
My feelings exactly. When they made the entire Strip available on the MCU, I started using it more (having 24 channels of it).
I had not to that point partly because it's so small on the screen . . . but with hard controls under my hands? Nice.
"Hands on" mix by ear kind of thing. And I DO use the bridge and love to be able to see how hard I'm hitting my comps (when using the Strip for this) across the mix in a glance. Artemus/Apollo style (and others). Wish they'd make plugin comps GR visible there, also.
And the Strip is really quite useable. Very good, in fact, in some cases.
Too many mixers hear what they think they should (or what they're told to) because "it's a classic", "Industry Standard" and all that baloney.
It's always fun to set up a BLIND A/B test for certain plugins with your Golden Eared friends. Match a "classic" EQ with the Cubase EQ as best you can (BY EAR, mind you), and see if they can ID the "Classic". It's quite eye (or ear, I should say) opening sometimes.

I've never seen anything BUT knobs. Can I make them something else?
I know you can't mean clicking on the name in the strip to drop them down . . .
