Hello, I have a symphony made with Cubase 5.0 VST Score in an .all format, which I could import from an old computer with my old Cubase SX and save it, in a .cpr format with no loss.
I opened the .cpr project with Cubase 12, and I had the full score with 16 instruments, working perfectly.
I wanted to replace the old ugly midi sounds with the new VST sounds with Iconica Opus and failed to do it on the original midi tracks. Therefore, I created new instrument tracks, using Halion Sonic SE 3, and I copied the old midi tracks in the new instrument tracks.
It was a real mess… for some reason, in some tracks, instruments have doubled notes! I want first to know if there is an easy and fast way to fix this (without deleting all the double notes one by one, as my symphony has over 2000 measures for 16 instruments!).
Other problem: the rhythm was a real mess, and almost the half of the instruments had a wrong rhythm… like using triplets where they should not, or moving notes to the wrong place (obviously a Q problem).
I spent hours trying to fix it, using Ctrl arrow left and right, using the Q tool for EACH SINGLE NOTE (a real boring stuff… 48 hours of work just to fix the score for 100 measures… 1900 measures left!).
When I tried to play it, the result was terrible, as the score was maybe visually fixed for those 100 bars, but when played, the midi notes were still unsynchronized… like if the musicians were drunk!
Of course, I know that I could fix the midi notes in the score, using the new tool that allow us to superpose the edition of the midi notes on the notes of the score, but I didn’t, as I thought that fixing the score would be enough… Obviously, I was wrong… and Cubase seems to still be unfriendly to do such work on a score…, and this is taking a lot of time. I am a little bit despaired.
Is there a function that allows me to Q the midi notes while fixing the score? Without having to fix the position of each single midi note in addition of fixing the score? Or maybe the opposite? Fixing the position of the midi notes that will fix the score at the same time?
I need a way to work faster.
- I also have to say, that Cubase 12 started to do crazy bugs at the end… Like when I wanted an 1/8th note, using the Q tool to write it on the score? It was writing triplets… delete… Q tool… rewrite… delete, rewrite… I lost one hour to fix one single note… and I failed to do it. I left this note for later, and after a while, I realized that the note fixed itself… Like a magical trick. Obviously, it was a display glitch…, as magic does not exist in computers… I just had to go to another page and come back, and it was fix… So… I need to understand… Is it because the .cpr file is a very old one? made from an .all format (stone age for computers…)? or is it Cubase that still show glitches and bugs on the screen that doesn’t exist in the midi system, or the opposite, showing the correct score, while the midi notes are a real mess…
I feel fighting again with the very old Cubase VST score… and all the old bugs…
I need help.
PS: I have the .cpr file of the whole symphony. I also have the .cpr files of each instrument saved alone (if this can help?).
Thank you for the help.
