I often start music or sections with a few beats of silence. But when I select and copy notes from one Part to paste into another another, Cubase left-justifies the first note to the program cursor position during the Paste, forcing me to either move them subsequently or move the cursor before pasting. This is extra work. How do I prevent this?
By comparison, here’s how FL Studio’s Piano Roll does it:
… the yellow border is the selection region. Notice that it includes two quarter notes of empty space. (AKA a half-note rest) So I do a Ctrl-C (copy) and in the bottom image I do a Ctrl-V (paste) into another instrument and the empty space in my selection is retained so the instruments line up.
In Cubase I make a similar selection and do a Ctrl-C (copy) and in the bottom image I do a Ctrl-V (paste) into another instrument but Cubase ignores my selection so the empty space disappears and Cubase shifts the notes.
. . .
As Mozart said,
“The music is not in the notes,
but in the silence between.”
…so what can I do about Cubase deleting the music?
Thanks in advance.
