I don’t know if this is reported or known or my mistake but, when I back up a project and check minimize audio files, the sampler track files get lost with an empty sampler track that still has the name and start end locators shrinked at the beginning.
Cubase Pro 11.0.1 Mac Mojave
Steps to produce:
Create an empty project
Create a sampler track with any audio file by dragging from the browser
Select Back up Project
-choose/create the folder
Check ‘minimize audio files’ from the preferences’
-name the project and save
Result: The file is gone from the sampler track ,
Start and end locators are shrunk at the beginning
and can not be moved,
For me, the latest update from 11 to 11.x on Catalina also broke down the Sampler Track file storage functionality.
Im back at 11.0 and it all works, and its awesome.
PS.Not shure what is happening, but i believe Apple makes it almost impossible for Steinie to do things right, file permission wise and what not. MacOS changes files systems and deep OS functionality on a whim, so all 3rd party devs (and even worse, the MacOS vst plugin devs) are in a very difficult position.
you can combine macros to do these things, so it super fast:
1.Audio - Find Selected In Pool
2.Media - Reveal In Finder
From here you can copy to a safe place, rename if needed, and drag back into Sampler with lock on.
This way you also have a backup from any cool sounds you made for later use.
I have a big folder with all my Sampler Track samples.
Was searching up on this issue and although it wasn’t an issue for me in previous versions, it happens every time since I upgraded to 11. Infuriating when you back up a project and have to go through every sampler track and drag in samples again.
I’ve stopped using it as well and just use audio tracks for now.
Hi guys, i made a macro that works pretty well, to backup a project with working sampler tracks:
First, select all the audio you want to minimize, for me this is mostly vocals is used.
Find Selected In Pool
Do a “Save As…” with different name (so the original project works for sure)
backup thru file/backup normal way
DESELECT Minimize Audio (this is critical for the Sampler Track to work.
In my case, this backs up my projects with working Sampler Track and minimized files, so its small.
And the macro does half of this work pretty fast…
Tip: to make audio files even smaller, i also use ‘Detect Silence’ and auto delete everything below certain threshold (like -50db, with slow attack and release).
This would be step 1b in the macro…
Still, it would be nice to have this work normally…this is both a pc and a mac problem.
I have this problem on my 16" macbook, a 15" macbook as well as new pc from Scan.
So im pretty sure its a Cubase problemo.
