export to MP3 cuts beginning

Hi, All —

I’ve searched and haven’t found this specific issue. I’m on update 10.5.11 and I believe I saw this issue in 9.5, too (my previous version).

It seems when I export from Cubase to an MP3 file, the very beginning of the file is truncated. The end seems correct. In other words, to export completely, I have to back up the left locator about 2 measures before the actual beginning. This is a pain for several reasons.

Anyone come across this or know what might be the cause?
