Multiple selection bug


I am using Cubase Pro 8.0.40 Build 623 (64-bit) on Windows 7 Pro. For the past couple of days, it’s been behaving strangely when I try to select a MIDI event.

In the example below, I’ve clicked only on the “Breaking Point” MIDI clip, but Cubase also selects Waterchime at the same time. I can’t edit one independently from the other. If I delete one, the other disappears as well. If I control-click on one event to deselect it, both events get deselected.
A similar problem occurs with MIDI controls:
Here, I am trying to edit the value of the panning controller, but Cubase also selects the MIDI clip. In this case, I can deselect the clip and access the controller’s value, but that’s just weird. It never used to do that.

Any suggestion? Thank you in advance.

The MIDI Events are probably linked. Press CTRL+U to unlink/ungroup them.

That should fix it.

I had the same issue, and found out it was a folder thing.
Do you have the tracks in a folder and enabled group editing button? …


i have a similar issue that only occurs in some projects. is there a solution? i dont have any folders on the project

Did not note this! Thank you. I just found the issue was group editing!

That’s my case. Thanks!!

It would be nice, if Cubase could warn us about that. Just a thought.

CTRL+U just saved me!

I was tearing my hair out before I found this thread.
Thanks so much.

Thank you so much!
