Some of us - i think, a lot, would like to work with Abletons Live AND Studio one. And some of us own some MPE gear. We are in 2018 and the good old cubase ist still a way better in midi. ;)

I think, it's time ...

Funkybot I thought your succinct explanation of the current advantages of using Cubase for this was too valuable to get buried in a release discussion thread so I’m going to quote it here!

MPE works pretty well in Cubase actually. Turn on MPE mode in your respective product to put each note on its own channel. Then in Cubase, you basically set a MIDI/Instrument channel to Omni/All mode which puts all 16 channels of MIDI on one track (S1 has no equivalent function), then you use Note Expression to record and edit the polyphonic expression data on a per-note basis (S1 has no equivalent function).

Currently, this is very messy in Studio One, requiring 16 instrument tracks (I'm sure you know this of course, just making a comparison).

Thanks! BTW, the link didn't come over in the quote, it's here:

I recently bought Cubase and I alternate between both S1 and Cubase pretty equally. I still find S1 more enjoyable to work with on the whole (faster, more intuitive), but when it comes to MIDI work, Cubase is far ahead of the game. The MIDI Input Transformer/Logical Editor is crazy good, a single midi track can receive from all 16 (omni) channels, polyphonic afertouch is supported, it includes note expressions, an articulation manager, a drum editor you can change the sorting on (to make it right-side up), a basic staff view, an overall better PRV, and automatic tempo detection of free-form MIDI recordings...these handful of things really combine to make a huge difference when working with MIDI and controllers/synths/VSTi's.

I'm hoping by the time we get to 4.6, Studio One will have seriously closed the gap.

Hi Harald,

haraldpliessnig wroteStill no MPE and still no Ableton link support - still no reason to change to Studio one.

Thanks for helping me out with the correct calendar data.

I've been searching for the option to enable Ableton Link in good old Cubase for hours but I can't find it. Would you tell me how to find it?

About 90% of my work is MIDI/VSTi and I've been working with Studio One for 8 years know. Maybe I should quickly change to another DAW since I now know that there's no reason to change to Studio One.
