I really tried to google, search on youtube, forums, and tried it myself… but I really CANNOT get the default value (which is 0) to get back to 0 after I’ve drawn an automation either manually or recorded it.
How do I get it to snap back to zero? I’ve even tried to type in 0 or 0.0 in the value box, but it just doesn’t snap to pure 0, it goes either 0.02 or 0.2 or more.
And also - how do I copy automation? JUST the automation and not the actual parts themselves (such as audioclips or midi clips)
You can add an automation node somewhere at the end of your track at 0 db. If you write automation it will return to zero after you release the parameter in writing. That happens in touch mode, there are more automation modes available, maybe consult the manual for more info.
Selecting an automation node an typing the desired value (in the info line) works as expected here. 0 = 0, not 0.02 or anything else.
Copy automation: select automation nodes, ctrl c/v (set playback cursor to desired position first) or use the range tool to select, then use alt + drag.
Just re-tried to confirm. It works here, at least with such simple things as volume.
With some third party plugin parameters the values also return to the exact setting with an automation node behind the part the part where I’me writing automation, but: if I select a node and want to set it to i.e. 68.24 by typing that value into the info line Cubase won’t allow, it just sets that value to 68.00 no matter what I do.
