Hey Steffen –
I was able to get the clip to align, but the resampling function still isn’t working right.
Indeed: by right-clicking the clip & selecting “find selected in pool,” I was able to locate it. There, I noticed that while the SAMPLE RATE was listed correctly, the TEMPO was incorrect. Matching the file’s tempo to the track’s, everything lined up. So that’s good.
But this is still a problem. If I hadn’t been working on the grid, I’m not sure this little workaround would have succeeded?
Wondering why I am still apparently experiencing the blank-box bug.
UPDATE: Just as an experiment, I tried to open this same 44.1 clip in a blank Cubase 9 project (64bpm, 48k project). I haven’t opened 9 in a while, and it actually kept crashing every time I selected FILE > IMPORT. But dragging the file in directly worked. I still see the time-stretch squiggle and note icon on the audio file. When I select PROCESS>RESAMPLE, I get the “resample not supported for clips in musical mode” error. If I toggle the track to LINEAR, still get the same error. If I drag a clip onto this same track that was recorded in 48k (vs 44.1), the resampling option works fine.
