System: iMac 27" Retina 4K (late 2015), 32GB RAM, OSX El Capitan (current version), Cubase Pro 8.5.15, build 126 (64-bit).
I am a long-time Cubase user and have typically been able to adjust audio event offsets (to correct timing) in the waveform editor by simply cutting a small slice from the beginning or end of the audio recording and pasting it to the opposite end of the audio event, depending on whether I need to shift the event forward or backward in time. I know there are other methods for doing this in Cubase, but this has proven to be a quick and efficient technique for me. In Cubase 8.5, I am able to cut audio, but I get the mouse-error-beep when I try to paste the audio. I am doing so within the audio event window, and within the measure boundaries where the event was recorded. I have also tried moving the event-start marker before or after the location where I am trying to paste; and also turned off snap-quantize, but it makes no difference. So in short I can cut but cannot paste audio. Did Cubase 8 change this function or default to some other type of restrictions for audio editing? I’m baffled.
