I’ll try playing with the track versions. I’m hoping if I save a track version of a comp, and record more takes, then those takes will show up as available on all the versions to include in the comp. This is how it works in Logic on Comp versions. In Logic, the new recording destroys the current comp just like in Cubase, but in Logic you can save comp versions, so I always use a dummy version for recording, and then switch back to other versions for the actually comp. But all recording take lanes are available for all versions.
I don’t really want to do render in place because that creates new audio files, and then you lose the before and after audio in the regions in case you want to slide the audio a bit in the regions.
What I want to do is where you say you remove the unused regions. I want to create a track with only the used regions in the comp. So is the only way in Cubase to do this manually? Like drag all the regions you are using in the various lanes to another track, or delete all the unused regions in the lanes? How do you go about this, do you just manually select all the regions you aren’t using in each lane, then delete them? Then move the regions you are using all to one lane? At this point, how do you get rid of he empty lanes and just make it a regular track?
I’ve only been using Cubase for 5 months and I love it. I"m never going back to Logic, but comping in Logic is the only thing I seriously miss. But I must be missing something in Cubase, it can’t be as hard as I described above.
