I hit an unusual audio mixdown error last night. Cubase 6-5 under windows 7 32bit.
I import a wave file extracted from a video into a blank cubase session, The audio file extraction was done outside of cubase.
I duplicate the track.
I add 4 group tracks to the project so I can apply send effects to the two audio tracks in the project.
After completing the mix I then use the audio mixdown dialog to export a single wave file from the stereo output bus only.
This worked OK for a couple of sessions with the final wav file being same time length as the original wav file.
However the third time I tried this the resultant exported wave file was 18 seconds longer than the original audio file (This is a problem as the file is required to match a video track).
I have ensured the output bit rate for mixdown is identical to that of the source file.
Anyone seen this or have any clues, suggestions what may be happening here. I cant understand why the audio file would increase in length during mixdown.
