From time to time when I duplicate channels the order of the resulting channels will be mixed up in the mixer view. The order is however correct in the project view. I already head this problem with Cubase 5.5, I posted this here: https://www.steinberg.net/forum/viewtopic.php?f=20&t=12141. There you can also find a screenshot. However I am now able to reliably reproduce the error:
- Create empty project
- Open the mixer window (and do not close until the end)
- Add an 2 audio track (at once, don’t know if that’s important)
- They are probably named Audio 01 and Audio 02
- Now, in the project window, drag the second channel Audio 02 above Audio 01, so that Audio 02 now is the first channel
- Now duplicate Audio 02
-> Result: In the project window the resulting audiotracks are sorted correctly (Channel 1: Audio 02, Channel 2: Copy of Audio 02), but in the mixer the channels from left to right are: Channel 2: Copy of Audio 02, Channel 1: Audio 02, Channel 3: Audio 01.
Closing and reopening the mixer will bring the tracks in the mixer into the right order again.
It is possible to reorder the tracks correctly afterwards, by changing there positions again. However this bug is annoying as it often leads to mistakes, especially if I’m in a recording session and I do the headphone mixes with Cubase.
Can anyone else reproduce this strange behavior, so that a bug can be confirmed?
My Hardware: Cubase 6.0.3. on a Windows 7 64bit Desktop PC. I have an RME 9652 and 2 UAD-1 installed. I also was able toe reproduce this with Cubase 6.0.3 on a Windows 7 32bit Laptop.
