In previous versions of Cubase (i.e. Pro 10.5.12) if you uncheck “Click during Count-in” in the “Metronome Setup” dialog when you press “Record” recording starts immediately. This no longer works in Pro 10.5.20.
To reproduce the issue open any project, then:
Open the “Metronome Setup” dialog.
Uncheck “Click during Count-in” and hit “OK”.
Hit “Record” - Cubase still pauses for the count-in period before recording.
Re-open the “Metronome Setup” dialog. “Click during Count-in” is still checked!
I tried to work round the issue by setting “Number of Bars in Count-in” to 0 but it defaults to 1.
For me this is a serious issue as my workflow has always been to hit record and have Cubase start recording immediately.
