The poll closes in a week so sometime after that. I hope Steinberg considers doing formal polls like this in the future via emails to registered users. I'm not saying people can vote twice or more on this poll, but they can. Something more formal can include unique links to make sure that doesn't happen and catch a wider cross section of users. Universal Audio, Arturia, and U-he are all companies that have sent out email polls.
Well, this is just an experiment to see how we can improve the community ideation. But yes, there are already people who voted twice and then even allocated their whole budget to one single feature. Twice. So multiple participation is now blocked and I will delete the doubles. Unfortunately it doesn't seem to be possible to set a budget limit per feature in our survey tool. So putting 100 on a single request is still possible. But, please be reasonable and try to allocate the budget to at least 5 to 6 different items.

I'm glad you can tell and are keeping on top of things! Looking forward to seeing the results.

Horizontal mouse wheel should scroll the mix console.
The scroll bar is far too tiny to click and drag, so there is currently no way to scroll the mix console.
There actually is. If you hover the mouse over the border just above the Panner or the scroll bar column, the scroll wheel works.

Try hovering over that tiny 2 pixel high space on a monitor with 2000 vertical pixels :). It's even tinier than the tiny scroll bar. The only explanation I can think of is that Steinberg assumed nobody would have enough tracks in their project that they would need to scroll the mix console.

Mac doesn't have zoom? On PC 'Windows'+'+' is zoom in. Use it all the time for super old VST plugins

On every other DAW, you simply use the scroll wheel to scroll the mixer. In other DAWs there is no need to drag an impossibly tiny scroll bar. There is no need to hover over a microscopic scroll region. There is no need to first zoom the display before you can scroll the mixer. With other DAWs there is no need to go to the feature requests forum and explain that the mixer should be easily scrollable.

Might want to account for minorities of users who use niche features that not as many Cubase users use.

For instance. "Do You Work ITB or OTB/Both?

Anyone who works OTB with analog hardware will agree External FX needs to be improved, but I'm assuming there is a much larger user base of people working exclusively ITB, so the voting numbers might show that no one seems to care about External FX, when there is a very important professional/commercial user group that does, and are also probably too busy to be keeping their eye on the forums to see this poll.

My most wanted "feature" was not on the list:
Make volume and panning accessable directly in the project window - like Logic and Protools.
In Cubase you to have to select the track first and then via the inspector adjust volume and panning.

In this case it seems he doesn't want to check the icon beforehand repeatedly. Anyway, generally speaking you can't have a toggle on/off command in a macro, because you don't know if you will trigger it on or off. You then have to have separate ON and OFF commands.
Thanks. Makes sense in the case of a macro requiring a specific snap setting.
You have to consider most people probably work with snap on most the time. Thus it makes sense to have 'Snap On' only as I would hit it all the time without even looking to see if it's on or off - because I want it on. ie, you press the key command for the work it is you are wanting to do without having to check if it is on or off.

I can never remember if I have it on or off, sometimes I think it's off and press J to turn it on but forgot it was actually already on, now it's off. then I moved a region, now I have to undo that move, and turn it back on. Very annoying.
Yes, this. 500 times everyday. The most infuriating thing about Cubase. Forget all the other new features, I'd pay £100 just for this.

Make Cubase and Wavelab (when the user buys both) the PLUGINS available for both Cubase and Wavelab.
For instance the Frequency EQ, you cannot use it in Wavelab...
The Master Rig from Wavelab, cannot be used in Cubase.

The Reason is : I made a whole project tracks in Cubase 10 with Frequency and save presets, i mind i could use Frequency in Wavelab.
I was wrong, the plugin Frequency cannot be used in wavelab.

Quess what : Fabfilter Pro Q2 works in Cubase and Wavelab and i can use the saved presets...
That is kind of sick that i have to use other plugins from other manufacturors.
And set aside Steinberg Plugins that work only under Cubase 10 or Only under Wavelab 9.5...
I am a believer you buy Cubase 10 and Wavelab 9.5, you surely could use PLUGINS in both software.
But instead, this is not the case...

I was kind of surprised as well that this wasn't mentioned. There are a lot of things missing that I get as requests on a regular base. I would suggest that we do these kind of polls every couple of month. We could keep the top 25 items and exchange the bottom half with new items.

My most wanted "feature" was not on the list either:
Please bring back the resizable right-click toolbox...
(It needs less mouse movement while editing with two shorter rows in stead of one long row. I can't get used to it and stick on Cubase 9.5 although I bought 10)

Now there's an idea .... license each major feature individually so we pay only for those features we need.
  • Everyone gets a basic Cubase for free, on whatever platform they want -- Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, cloud
  • If a feature is available for that platform, you buy a license to use it
  • Licenses could be time-limited .... if you only need a feature for a month, you rent it

mixing. all three mixers can be used without sharing global settings
eg mixer 1 input busses meters set to input
mixer 2 meters set to other than what mixer 1 and three are ..
thanks for the chance to voice my wish

No. Very bad. You'd need to pay as much (or more), but for less features.
And it would also take resources to develop this system, giving you even less in the end.

That's something that's useful for pro users to have a quick workflow. But I don't think home users have it highly prioritized.

The time window to send requests this time was from friday afternoon until saturday morning. You can then expect mostly home user replies. If this would be published next time, let's say, on a monday morning, you could probably expect a bit different replies, i.e. a higher share of pro user replies.

I don't think it's Pro/Home split at all. I think it has more to do with preferences around user workflow and UI. For instance, I keep my tracks in the Arranger very thin as to see as many tracks as I can. And if I need a larger view on a track for editing or something, I'll toggle the track height with Z. So with very thin tracks, I'm not going to see volume and pan in the Arranger/Project view.

Now, how do I work like this? Well, it works in conjunction with a mixer that's almost constantly docked. Then I've got a screenset/keybinding that gets me to full-blown mixer view. All on a wide-screen monitor. The volume/pan adjustments happen either in the docked mixer, or full screen one, and the widescreen eliminates the need for a lot of horizontal scrolling.

So with that type of setup, adding a volume and pan to the Arranger very little value. But I don't begrudge anyone who wants it, and it's a very common feature in most DAWs. But it wouldn't add much to my particular workflow. I prefer the docked mixer for volume/pan.

You know what I would love to see though? Fully height adjustable mixer channels like Reaper that could display inserts and sends all at once, even when docked! Heck, just give me 4 insert slots and the first send! And if there's not enough height, then only show the faders.
