I always knew when my projects started to get complex that my automation wasn’t quite on the money… so today. i decided to do a little test, I was quite shocked to see that automation is actually linked to the sequencer latency? this doesn’t quite seem right to me? surely this should be compensated?
here is a photo
this is a simple mute automated,
2nd waveform is 16ms latency, 3rd is 10 and bottom is 2ms…
… I suspect the first comment will be ‘where have you been? it’s always been like this’
Eheh, really annoying problem in my opinion. Sometimes when I’m using plugins with a lot of latency (like linear phase eq with over sampling mechanism in mastering) I need to go by trial and errors to get automations right.
Now I don’t remember but if you re-import the track does it do the same problem? I mean when you’re unsing the import option on the export window.
At its’ heart Cubase is a MIDI sequencer, anything else, e.g. audio, while solid most of the time is really an add-on hence my suggestion to use MIDI for broad changes and standard automation for things like effects etc (MIDI can be used exclusively).
