Is there any reason for this situation, i.e. an empty lane?
It’s the empty next recording, whether you record it or not. Not too pretty indeed…
Not really necessary in my opinion either, I can live with it creating a new lane while I’m recording, but as far as I’m concerned using ‘clean up lanes’ can delete all empty lanes.
I’m not using lanes to record audio or MIDI, they are a programming tool.
Steinberg needs to consider all users not just engineers or performers.
