You’re wrong this time mate, I’m afraid.
Virgin=empty. So if you put your play head into a virgin territory and see automation value changes it means that that place is not empty, it means that gaps between your automation “islands” are filled already and command “Fill Gaps on selected tracks” is nothing more than just a visualization of the existing lines.
Hi, Sorry but YOU’re wrong. this is not how virgin territories works. I’ve worked with it several years already.
Here is a reply from an other member on the same subject on an other post…
There are two things to consider about virgin territory.
First, Steinberg implementation of virgin territory is correct. If you look into big digital consoles like Ams Neve Encore or Euphonix System 5, those automation systems work exactly like that. If no automation is written in virgin territory it does not mean there will be no return value for a fader at that point. Usually the automation system looks backwards for the last written value, and if it finds none it looks forwards.
The other question is if Steinberg implementation is the most appropriate for a DAW, which I don’t think it is. Steinberg just copied those linear automation systems, but automation workflow in digital consoles is a bit different. They don’t have automation in graphical form which you can easily manipulate like you can in Nuendo. So I think MattiasNYC is correct, even if I don’t agree that Nuendo virgin territory is flawed.
I would like Nuendo to go along Harrison, the third big name in digital film consoles. Harrison developed Mixbus DAW automation and they apparently have knowledge about both types of automation systems. I wonder what happened to Yamaha, Steinberg, and Harrison Strategic Alliance from 2015.
There is little I could not agree with Ben Harrison:

so I know what I’m saying when I say it is broken and that it doesn’t make any sense how it is now as the “virgin territory” as you believe it is is completly unusable… Drives me mad that there is more people to say I’m wrong as it seems they never ever have used it not before and it seems neither now…
and all of you who says I’m wrong… why the Hell, if you’re right, is cubase writing an automation value at the very begining of the project when you start writing automation on a track??? if you want a “virgin territory” in which cubase doesn’t recall any value, what would be the point of that?? huh ??
