I have been using Cubase for years now and feel I know the software pretty well. (the parts of it I use anyways)
Yesterday I did a session with a vocalist who asked me to loop the chorus so she could work on harmonies. What she wanted was the entire chorus looped with lead voice playing back. On first line of the chorus she had nailed the harmony and wanted to hear that harmony but drop in for lines 2-4. The only way I could get this right was by duplicating the harmony track to play back the first line while recording lines 2-4 on a third track.
Is there a way to set a playback loop separate to a recording loop. I looked at indepent loop in the part editor but couldn’t figure it out. I personally never use the part editor for much so am quite a rookie when it comes to it.
If it is not currently possible, what do you all think of having two loop locators? Then one could loop a larger section, while automatically dropping in and recording a smaller section within the larger loop.
