Help with chopping samples and Musical Mode

This has truley been the biggest pain inthe butt ever! I still cannot for the life of me chop samples in cubase 8 pro. And it’s getting so frustrating that I’m ready to just give up even switching over to cubase. There’s no reason editing audio should be this difficult. I use the sample editor to edit a peice of audio track down to a specific length so that I may create a loop of that audio track. Once I have that audio the specific lentgh I want it locked to a 4 bar lentgh so that I may create around that loop with my plugins but as soon as i put it in musical mode the entire section I have either dissapears or completely shifts to a new point in the audio. This would’ve taken minutes to do in FL Studio. Why is this so hard in cubase?

Because FL Studio used to be Fruity Loops, and looping is their heritage. Steinberg has Sequel for such jobs. Not that it shouldn’t work in Cubase, but it does explain a lot.
