I usually mix drums up in Battery, assign 2-3 samples on the same midi note, adjust volumes, then add eq and effects. After that step I want to bounce the audio just for that cell’s output. (I set it up as multitimberal)
I figured out how to do that using the file->audio mixdown and set it to save the audio to the audio folder in my project.
I clicked the box to bring it into its own audio lane.
I then open the sample editor in cubase. I chop the section I want and normalize.
I think when I chop and normalize, it makes another file on the harddisk. Like clap_01.
One thing I can’t get though is when I am in the sample editor, I hit audition, and make sure the audiotion volume slider is up, but I hear nothing. I opened the track settings and make sure it is output to headphones (my main output) and still nothing.
Why can’t I hear it?
Also, I want to bring the sample back into Battery, as that was the whole point of bouncing. But Window’s says the file is in use, until I close the cubase project, even if I delete my editing audio tracks. How can I tell Cubase, let go of that file but don’t delete it?
