I totally agree! I was very disappointed to discover, after purchase, that Cubasis was only 16 bit. For now it will only serve a s a scratch pad for me with "real" recording done in Auria.
Which is a drag frankly because I think just about everything wrt workflow is better/easier/more-intuitive in Cubasis.
my requests include:
--folders in media bay
--drag duplication (or repeated "copies to end" of previous paste)
--a simplified version of arranger track (I realize a "fully-capable" arranger track is a fairly robust implementation) ... but a simplified version might be: draw/select A, B, C, D, etc., sections... clicking apply would instantly flatten track to said arrangement. One could revert to previous snapshots to try/impliment alternatives.
--midi clock in and out
--sub-group creation assignment (like Auria)
plenty more... but these for starters.
IMO, Cubasis needs to match the sonic capabilities of Auria to actually be perceived as a pro competitor and not some "lo-fi" app toy.
Usability... ease of use... intuitive wise Cubasis trounces Auria, which IMO is a pain in the butt to use. For example every time I record a track in Auria I have to go find the track in the mixer or expand the view in order to unclick the record-enable button to even hear the track! Hello!!That kind of work flow clunkiness is not only totally lame but makes me think the developers have never even done any actual recording! I could go on and on... (like going to some some menu/page to just toggle the metronome... another Hello? anybody home?)
Seriously, I bought Auria a few months back soooo excited. But seriously, after using it a dozen hours or so, I don't even want to go near it. ESPECIALLY after using Cubasis for not even a few hours already!
Here's what really irks me: that Cubasis/Steinberg is forcing me to still have to rely on Auria to get pro quality multi-track recordings (which any pro will agree STARTS at 24 bit, minimum).
One post very aptly put it: why is the Cubasis team giving us 1980's audio quality in 2013? I concurwith THAT question (assessment).
That said I love Steinberg, having used it since 1988 and having produced over 30 commercially released CDs on it over the last 30 years. I ain't leavin.
But I am scratchin' my head on this one one. I'm not worried. I KNOW these guys are smart enough to get this together... but hopefully soooooooner rather than later, nudge nudge wink wink say-no-mo.
