Cubase Artist 10 doesn't play all the events in a part except the last one

Hello folks, how’s life?
I recently upgraded to Cubase Artist 10, which looks smashing. But with different puzzling issues.
One, I’ve recorded multiple takes in a loop, so that later I can chose the best. Put them all as ‘Events to Part’. Then I want to hear each one by ‘Start play’. In my previous Cubase versions, the last recorded one plays and when muting it, the previous one plays and so forth. Here this doesn’t work, I mute the last one but NO OTHER event plays except that last one!! I can only play the other ones with the mouse and the small loudspeaker icon (9). But that’s not practical at all. And the manual has no explanation whatsoever. Can anyone give me a hint how to resolve that problem, please?

BTW, while reading in this forum, it seems Cubase has plenty of problems… Should I finally switch to ProTools ?

Loads of thanks in advance!

Sounds like maybe you’re selecting different takes with the mouse pointer rather than with the comping tool?

I am new to CB Artist 10, I’m not yet sure how to use the comping tool. By just pressing the bar CB plays the takes one by one after muting a previous take, like in all older CB versions. But now, whatever I do ONLY the last take plays, no other.

Ok guys,
I found the way for playing back recorded in a loop audio takes put in a Part. It is: Edit - Move to - Front (U).

And that Comp tool, I still can’t find WHAT exactly it does and HOW it does what it does, despite the “rigid” manual explanations. See an example:

  1. Select the Lane Comping tool or the Object Selection tool.
  2. Bring a take to the front to select it for playback, and listen to it. —(HOW ???)
  3. Audition different takes to compare them in more detail.
  4. If necessary, cut your takes into smaller sections, create new ranges, and bring them to the front.
  5. Proceed until you are satisfied with the result. … …

Well, I should say Cubase is excellent but the explanations are really far from well made. For example, it says “this (tool or function) does that”, but HOW it does it, it’s another issue to find where it is explained, or sometimes IF explained at all !!
Nothing is prefect in this reality…

Thanks anyway for your feedback.

There are loads of tutorals about working with different takes and comping available online.

This one is done on Artist 10.5:

The priciples are pretty much the same on all versions of Cubase right back to C7 or so, so just about any Cubase comping tutorial will be relevant, with only the position and appearance of a few commands and icons being a little different.

Hope it helps. Glad you’re enjoying Cubase even if not enjoying the manual so much :wink:

Hello all and thanks for you feedback. The issue is set.
