The manual reads “You can activate punch in and punch out by activating the corresponding buttons on the Transport panel.
The punch in position is locked to the left locator position and the punch out position to the right locator position. The punch position fields are unavailable. However, you can detach the punch points from the locators by deactivating Lock Punch Points to Locators.”
I have set the two punch points but there is no button to deactivate Lock Punch Points to Locators. Nor can I find or activate these punch handles on the marker track that are mentioned.
Why has Cubase been made so unnecessarily complicated? The simplest things are now convoluted and hidden. I used to love using Cubase but now it just makes my blood boil. I have used Cubase since the very first version on Atari but these days I just go back to Ableton for its ease of use. Today I have spent an hour just trying to figure out how a basic everyday function like Punch In and Out now works in Cubase 9.5. I read the manual but it does not correspond to what I see on my screen. This should be so user-friendly you don’t even have to use the manual and if you do go to the manual at least explain it properly and so it matches the actual software. I’m only using Cubase today for an old project that was done in Cubase otherwise I wouldn’t even be bothering with it.
