Hi Chris995

Thanks for your interest on Cubase iC Air.
We've just verified, assigning the "Snap On/Off" function to AI knob is not possible at the moment. The same applies to the other controls found on the toolbar generally.
cheers,
SMing

I was going to go out and get one of the leaps today but for start and stop, rewind, automation, zoom it doesn't fit into my area of work, i could really do with hand gestures with functions like snap on/off

as a full time audio editor using c7 (doing thousands of repetitive micro tasks daily) having too many shortcuts and only 2 hands is abit of a task, this would definitely make it easier, so if you could look at getting the function to learn custom gestures that you can assign like key commands would be a big deal

never the less nice one once again for being ahead of everyone else :)

Hi Chris!


This is an idea we have in mind as well indeed.
What could be the use-case? To have a set of pre-defined gestures that you can assign to any KeyCommands you want, or something a bit more sophisticated with a custom gesture learn function?
But for start and stop, rewind, automation, zoom it doesn't fit into my area of work
Just to add that you can also control any parameter you want with the virtual AI Knob feature.
It turns out to be very handy and intuitive when it comes to VSTI parameters; it's way better than a modulation wheel actually I think.

Hello Armand, I think both of those options you propose are both great ideas, but id hazard a guess that a list of pre defined gestures to assign to key commands would be faster to develop? Either way, which ever option is faster to release at your end would be superb but with the end goal of being able to make custom gestures. Also I'm here if you need a guinea pig at any time :)
