I have no idea how this has happened - I think I must have selected some option somewhere - but I noticed Cubase wasn’t asking the usual ‘copy to project directory’ ‘convert sample rate’ questions when I’ve been importing audio files lately. I think it’s been like this at least 2 weeks or so.
I noticed it hadn’t been converting sample rates when I’d been importing audio from basehead that is at 44.1kHz to my default project sample rate of 48kHz, resulting in them being slightly higher pitch. No biggie - it makes it quicker and I’ll be mangling them about anyway.
However a bigger deal is that it hasn’t been making local copies of these audio files in my project audio folders!!! This is a BIG problem if it is referencing my local sfx library files, or even shared network sfx files as this will be screwing a lot up, and means my colleagues won’t be able to edit my project files properly!
How I get these options back? I can’t seem to find it in Preferences.
Is there a way I can convert a whole load of old projects which will be referencing remote audio files, to make local project copies of these audio files? We may be talking 100+ projects here! !!!
