My Cubase 10 entered what I am calling “spazmode” 3 days ago while I was working on a new project. Since then it has remained in spazmode, so I am here to try to work out what is going on (I don’t want to delete preferences again (yet), that is bloody annoying and doesn’t actually help identify a root cause).
The spazmode behaviour:
- if I create an event on a MIDI track, double click on it to get the editor view (down below), then press record: that track isn’t armed to record, so playing on the piano roll yields nothing.
- manually arming the track then recording will yield a new event ontop of the event I created at first (the one I double-clicked into and play piano roll in). So every recording ends up in 2 events, annoying.
- some VSTi tracks became orphaned: clicking on such a track doesn’t show the usuall Inspector list for a VSTi, rather a barebones MIDI track one.
As a result, my sessions require extra steps and/or can’t be worked with properly. The UI does not provide any rationale for the normal behaviour to now be gone.
…now perhaps there is some reason to that maddness, perhaps I accidentally pressed a button and some awful setting got stuck in preferences? Probably not but worth asking. Anyone else experienced this?
