[Edit: This is a thread I started because I am getting different results on my system when I duplicate audio using the “hot-spot-drag” technique vs. when I use the “CLICK-HOLD-ALT-DRAG” technique. I’d appreciate it if someone might have a moment to check out the repro and report what happens on their system. The repro is in the post of February 5, 2017 at 2147 hrs, here: https://www.steinberg.net/forums/viewtopic.php?f=250&t=112072&p=614079#p614079 , farther down. The intervening posts, including this one, can be skipped, as they are just working towards that repro. Thank you!]
I wind up with duplicate audio clips of different time duration in a variable tempo project.
- Create a project where one bar is at one tempo, and the bar immediately following it is at faster tempo. A larger difference in tempos makes all this easier to see, 20-30 BPM faster for the 2nd bar should be good.
- Using a drum VSTi, record one bar of audio in the second bar, I used EZD2 and the Punch In/Out secondary loop controls in the toolbar.
- After it is recorded, grab the middle right hot spot and drag right so it is duplicated once.
- Select the original audio, and note its time duration in the info line (minutes:seconds).
- Select the duplicated audio - it is a shorter time duration than the original.
Troubleshooting: The greater the tempo in the 2nd bar, the shorter time duration the duplicated audio is.
As an internal control, when I duplicate the old-fashioned way (select/hold the original audio, CTRL-ALT click/hold, then drag), the duplicated audio is as expected the same time duration as the original, no matter what the tempo difference between the two bars is.
Anyone else? (I looked at Confirmed bugs and unconfirmed bugs, didn’t see this, sorry if I did miss it …)
