Can anyone help me with this:
When I try to import an MP3 audio file into a project, I don’t get any errors, but a new audio track doesn’t get created and nothing shows up. Also, if I open up the media pool window, and try to import the MP3, nothing happens. Again, no messages whatsoever. I verified that if I convert the MP3 file to WAV first, it works just fine. My conclusion is that a Codec or component to do the conversion is missing from Cubase. Anybody know what I need to fix this?
Note that this problem seems to be related to Cubase 12. I had Cubase 10 previously and never had this problem.
PS, The workaround to convert to WAV first (using Audacity) works, but I use Cubase for music practice to play along with pre-recorded songs, so converting many files is somewhat time consuming and an extra step.
