I previously used Cubase AI5 on a Mac.
I’m trying out Cubase Elements 8 on the Mac.
My OS is Low Sierra (10.12).
What I’m trying to do:
I have an audio track with music recorded.
I also have a second track “below” the first one.
I want to select a portion of the audio track, then “drag off a copy” downward and “drop it” into the second track below.
I want to “constrain” the movement so that the “copy” doesn’t lose its place in the timeline (i.e., move left or right).
In Cubase AI5 (and earlier), I was able to do this by:
- Select portion using selection tool
- Hold down “command+option”, then grab the selection with the “hand” cursor and “drag-n-drop” it over the lower track.
Quick and easy.
This command combination no longer seems to work in CE8.
Is there a keyboard command that does what I need to do (drag a copy downward while constraining its position in the timeline)?
Is there a way I can assign this to “command+option”?
I can’t seem to find where to do it in the Key Commands menu.
