This forum seems to be a better place. See “Re: midi spoils it (not, after) all” in the VST Transit Go forum.
OK, so I did some testing and found some facts, but maybe not all the facts:
- The bouncing of pure Media Bay files helps
- Midi has got nothing to do with it
- If I receive an external audio file that was recorded in 44.1 kHz and 32 float and I import that track into a new project as 44.1/24 then the sync and mirroring go ok (while in the pool the file still has the attributes 44/32)
- If I receive an external audio file in 44/32 and import it in a project as 44/64 and then save the project, I can find that track later in the Media Bay. When I import that saved track into a new project with 44/24, the track is visible in the pool as 44/64! And now the sync goes wrong.
It feels as if the different behaviour has something to do with the bit rate.
Maybe there is somebody in Steinberg who is smarter than me who can use these results to figure out what is happening and why.
Thank you, Michael.
