I often import large samples into Cubase. I then want to pick 4 bars, isolate them and place them onto a track in musical mode. To get the musical mode to work nicely with the part, I have to specify how many bars are contained in my sample. I cannot do this with the original sample since it contains maybe 100 bars and I seem to be unable to let Cubase know that the event loop has 4 bars and fit that with musical mode.
I usually do the following: I specify a four bar event region in the sample editor and bounce the event, therefore getting a new part with exported audio in place. I can then edit the sample and define that it has 4 bars and now it can be used with musical mode.
However, this is a lot of work and I was hoping someone knew a better way to get this done.
