I hope no one minds me reviving a dormant thread, but…
As a person relatively new to Cubase,
What is the difference between track selection and track focus? My guess is that focus is for when you’re using the QWERTY keyboard to control parameters. That’s the red frame. Isn’t that the same as keyboard focus?
Track selection is for when you want to do some operation or edit on one or more track. It’s indicated by the gray. But tracks also go gray when I use the corresponding fader Or track select button on my control surface.
To add to the confusion, there is mouse focus. If I hover Mouse over a particular fader on the mixer, I can then adjust the level using the scroll wheel. However the track is not gray, so it is not selected.
So it’s possible to have selection, keyboard focus, and mouse focus on three different tracks at once.
Am I on the right track? (Pun not intended)
