But you’re right about the way this is worded. It should actually say, imo (italics mine):
If the respective audio clips would overlap if their full length were exposed, the two events are resized so that they overlap, and a crossfade of the default length and shape is applied in the overlapping area.
“Clip” refers to the audio file, and “Event” refers the the container seen in the project window.
Thanks will check these out. I plan to get the Cubase 9 book and take the online training at Berklee Music. When I started working with Ableton Live 9, I did the same thing and that squared me away with Ableton so this will help for mastering Cubase. So many DAWs and gears to learn so little time. Most composers are using like 3-4 DAW and lots of gears! I see Pro Tools a lot in use by game and film producers for the post production work. Why?
