Using Cubase Pro 12, I have started attempting live looping.
I have an arranger track set up, and some pre-prepared MIDI parts. The arranger tracks loops each section a few times, while I will layer instrument on instrument for each loop.
I use “Merge” MIDI record mode, and “Mix” for MIDI cycle record mode.
Here is what happens:
- With arranger track activated, I start recording. Drum track is selected.
- I record drums over a copule of loops, everything works fine and I can add to the drum track for each loop.
- I select the Keys track to add chords. It adds to the existing MIDI part on that track, as expected.
- When the part is looped again, Cubase stops recording. Keys track is still armed for recording (Record Enable), but I have to press “Transport Record” again to change from playback to record.
Is there a way around this?
As a side note, when doing the same scenario without arranger track, and looping a specific section, merge/mix recording and switching between tracks works as expected.
Appreciate any thoughts on this!
