Tom Holkenborg (a.k.a. Junkie XL), film composer extraordinaire for such films as Mad Max: Fury Road and 300: Rise of an Empire, has been posting a wonderful series of video tutorials covering a variety of topics in film scoring. Like all composers at Remote Control Studios, he uses Cubase, and in his latest video he shows off his custom touchscreen controller that gives him rapid control over a variety of Cubase commands.
One of the things that makes Cubase such a great DAW is its deep integration with touchscreens. Almost every aspect of the program can be remote controlled, including custom commands created by you.
