i have been asking how to do this on this forum for several years. no-one has figured out how to do this, and there is no Key Command in Cubase to “Move Cycle Locators to next part”. It is a big part of my workflow as i like to build up tracks by adding many tracks to one looped 32 beat section, building up my track with many layers, then moving to the next 32 beat section and adding more tracks and sounds and loops. Its clunky currently to keep moving the cycle locators around. heres how to jump the locators around to the right and left with one key!
create macro called “Move Cycle Locators to Next Part”
1:/ Transport - To Right Locator
2:/ Transport - Set Left Locator
3:/ Locate Next Event
4:/ Set Right Locator
5:/ Transport - Locate Previous Event
create macro called “Move Cycle Loctators to Previous Part”
1:/ Transport - To Left Locator
2:/ Transport - Set Right Locator
3:/ Transport - Locate Previous Event
4:/ Transport - Set Left Locator
then go to the “Macros” section of the Key commands, find your two new commands and assign them to a key. i have assigned them to < and > keys (to the right of n and m on the keyboard) so i just tap the arrow left or right, and my cycle locators jump over!
The great thing about this macro is that if you are working on a 16 beat part that is looping, the macro will jump the locators across to the next 16 beats. but if you are working on a 32 beat loop, it will jump to the next 32 beat loop! awsome!
