In Logic, you have the zoom tool on COMMAND-CLICK.
You select an area by dragging a rectangle open, and voila you get it - both on time and track axis.
Need to zoom further in, do it again.
Go back? You´ve got the full zoom history when you do a short (non-dragging) COMMAND-CLICK.
Before I bought my Mac, I was at the Musikmesse Frankfurt 2010.
I went to Steinbergs booth, and asked the guy who has been doing the large beamer presentation 5 minutes before, how to zoom into a certain part of the arrangement with Cubase 6.
I was hoping I had missed some speacial trick to quickly zoom in on an area of the arrangement.
I told him to select a few bars and 3 tracks in the arrangement and it took him half a minute to first select the part of the song, center it again, and then zoom into 3 tracks and adjust the view to do a proper musical edit.
I took him over to the Presonus or RME boot (don´t remember for sure) where a copy of Logic was running and showed him Logic´s zoom handling.
He became totally pale, as I selected the desired view in just a second.
I said: Why don´t you Steinberg guys do something like this? This would speed up editing incredibly!
Even Reaper has at least the horizontal zoom on the mouse wheel, making it quick in at least on direction.
He promised to tell the developement guys... (Why did I actually type gays first, must be Freud).
So: How can editing in Cubase 6 be miles ahead, if it actually takes you ages to get to the place where you want to edit?
