Bug?! FF/REWIND during PLAY

Problem: Pushing “Fast Forward” or “Rewind” on my computer keyboard during playback works but the cursor won’t stop when I release the key. This makes FF/REW an almost useless key-command (at least during playback).

When I do the same thing with the mouse on the transport panel it works as expected: FF or REW stops on mouse release.

I think this wasn’t an issue in earlier cubase versions - if I remember right this strange behavior started with C4 or C5.

Can anyone confirm this or do I have a little problem with my apple keyboard?

Same issue on a Mac. Yes, this popped up with the advent of C6. Not a problem with C5.

The same happens here on a PC.

Thanks for confirming.

I have the same issue in C 5.5.3, not only in C 6.0.3

The correct behavior of pressing and then releasing the FF/REW buttons while in PLAY should be: continue to PLAY from the new position (and not STOP)

It would be great to get this fixed in the next update!

I didn’t get a statement from Steinberg so far, so here is my official bug report. Please, reproduce the steps and confirm officially. Thanks very much!
(+Please fix this soon!)

Wrong Transport Behavior on FF/REW-release

Key-Commands Behavior:
Repro:

  1. Create empty project
  2. press PLAY (spacebar/enter) on the keyboard
  3. press FF or REW on the keyboard - the playhead moves forward or backwards in FF/REW-mode
  4. release the key
    Problem: the playhead continues in FF/REW-mode (instead of returning into PLAY-mode at the new position)

Transport Panel (with mouse) Behavior:
Repro:

  1. Create empty project
  2. press PLAY
  3. press FF or REW
  4. release the mouse
    Problem: the playhead stops (instead of returning into PLAY mode at the new position)

Aloha,
Sorry guys but I can’t reproduce this .
Tried several times. All woiks fine here.

I Followed the above report exactly and all is fine here.

Example 1-
Problem: the playhead continues in FF/REW-mode (instead of returning into PLAY-mode at the new position)

When I release my keyboard button, the playhead ‘plays’ normally

Example2-
Problem: the playhead stops (instead of returning into PLAY mode at the new position)[/quote]

When I release the mouse button the playhead DOES return to play mode.

Just reporting from this side of the volcano.

Just reporting from this side of the volcano.

Try tapping FF or Rew a few times in succession and see if mayhem ensues. I can almost always get it to fail doing that.

Everything works Ok here, there’s a “Stop playback while winding” pref under “Transport” that some of you might have overlooked.
Also, I finally understand the behaviour of the shuttle speed control, (while playing) clicking and dragging immediately will continue playing in the current speed when releasing the button, clicking and waiting a bit makes the transport stop after releasing.

You are right: It is the “Stop playback while winding” preference that caused the trouble. After unchecking this option everything works fine here.
Thanks!
