I wonder about this feature when you are downmixing a project that has an Arrangement Track enabled and modified so that it leaves some areas of the mix project out.
When you select the area of the mix, and downmix it, then Cubase starts (or continues) the downmix from the beginning after first downmixing it from start to finish. So that the resulting downmix is exactly as long as the project without the Arrangement Track enabled. So if the mix’s original length without the Arrangement Track is, say, 6 minutes, and then when you use the Arrangement track to cut, say, 2 minutes off of the mix, then Cubase will continue downmixing from the beginning of the project and add these “missing” 2 minutes with the material from the beginning of the mix, with 2 minutes.
Why isn’t Cubase able to downmix the project with the Arrangement Track enabled so that the length of the downmixed file will be correct?
I have had to flatten the projects in order to be able to downmix the projects correctly but then of course I will not be able to modify them afterwards.
Shouldn’t the downmixing work correctly even if there is an Arrangement Track used and enabled? I possibly cannot be wrong about this.
Thank you for reading.
