I also posted most of this at http://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=181&t=43930, but have posted here also as I may need to upgrade to Artist instead of Elements:
I’ve just upgraded from Elements 6 to Elements 7. I am badly missing the functionality of the Audio Part Editor I had in Elements 6. (Hopefully I have missed a set-up?) The Audio Part Editor in Elements 6 showed me, by default, all events on separate lanes immediately on opening the Audio Part Editor after performing “Events to part”.
I can individually - if possible - separate all the vents and drag them to new lanes, but this is not practical - in an Audio Part I often have dozens of takes, with multiple tiny events in each from previously editing each take.
Elements 6 worked fine for me in this way. I could open the Part Editor to see the events already in place in dozens of lanes, and work through them till I had my “comp” by selecting my chosen events in each lane for each point in the track.
(I don’t know if this is relevant, but even after I have dragged events in the Audio Part Editor to different lanes, I cannot make events active (i.e. highlighted, and audible) by clicking on them; I haven’t tried to address this yet as they need to be in their own lanes on opening anyway - and if that is not possible in Elements 7 I’ll have to use 6, or upgrade to Artist)
Thanks in advance for any help.
