I just upgraded from Cubase 6 to 10 Pro. My work flow for comping vocals in Cubase 6 was as follows:
- With lanes showing, use split tool on any track in any lane to slice up all tracks into phrases.
- While cycle is activated in transport, use object selection tool to pick best take.
- After best take is chosen, click on next sequential phrase, press P to move the cycle to next phrase, and continue comping.
This was very simple, and allowed for a constant flow of the song without the need to press the stop button.
Now in Cubase 10 Pro, I have to make sure that I hover the split tool over the main track, because if I hover over individual lanes, it will only slice the track on that lane. This is no big deal and I can easily adjust.
However, the biggest problem is that the comp tool doesn’t actually select a part, so if I press P to change where the transport will cycle, it will still be on the previous part.
I tried using the arrow keys to select the next part, but if there are gaps in the lanes, it will skip over some parts. This has been a real hindrance on my workflow, so I was wondering if there’s a way the comp tool can also select the chosen part, or possibly just continue using the object selection tool for comping.
Any help would be appreciated.
