Hi as a long time Logic user I am now in my 3rd month as a new Cubase user and there’s something I can’t figure out how to do that I did in Logic and it is slowing down my workflow. I need to know how to solo a part/clip independently of track solo. A couple of examples of when I use this is as follows…
I have a number of tracks in solo mode to isolate certain elements, eg. 5 tracks with various synth audio clips and 3 tracks with various percussion clips. If i want to then quickly isolate just one clip on one of the tracks to hear it solo’d how do I do it? In logic the track solo function is independent of a part solo function that are both available simultaneously. I want to keep working with the aforementioned tracks still in solo mode but be able to quickly solo and un-solo clips. I need to do this for various reasons, the most obvious to just hear what a particular sound is doing to the mix while still working with the isolated tracks.
Another thing I need to do all the time is this… I quite often will have a busy section of small cut up audio clips quite close together. I need to be able to quickly isolate a small individual clip to find if it is the one that is causing a click or not to then adjust the fade in/out accordingly. This is near impossible to do if i cannot isolate each clip slice.
This seems an obvious and essential thing, am I missing something? I thought of creating a ‘Part solo’ macro that just mutes all the other parts except the selected part, ie a kind of inverse solo, but this also un-mutes the already muted parts/clips which still doesn’t work for me. I know I can also play the clips from the editor window but can i hear it as it is with the fades and active plugins?
Thanks in advance
