I’m using cubase 5.1.1, currently. Never bothered with the updates (if it’s not broken, don’t fix it), but my topic might be an occasion to do so.
A producer sent me s simple OMF file consisting of a montage done with one originaltrack cut in multiple chunks.
I opened it with cubase. Cubase claims it doesn’t find the necessary media.
I point cubase towards the folder the media are in.
Cubase is happy.
The pool says that no media is missing and that every media is used once in the sequence, as it should be.
And still: there is no sound in the sequence. Blocks appear to be empty in the sequence. Empty blocks in the sequence bear the name of the originale track that was edited (say the montage was done editing a song called “love me do”, the blocks are all called that way, like they were in protools). The chunks cubase claims to be actually using are not named like that, though.
What’s more strange is that in the pool, the small chunks of wave appear to be empty, with a duration that is zero seconds.
If I open them in an exetrnal editor, they play as they should.
Their frequency and bit depth are adequate for the sequence I’m working with.
Importing in a new sequence doesn’t change things.
The producer who sent me the OMF is perfectly sure that he can open it back in protools.
Could it be a CUbase related bug?
if so, has it been corrected in the latest version of cubase 5?
would there be here a cubase 5 user kind enough to d/l the omf and try and openit on its system. This would settle things so quickly that I cannot avoid asking. The zip containing the omf is less than 200Mo.
The link to the zip would be sent through a private message.
Thanks and good night to all musicians here
