I set up a new project, all default settings (Cubase 8.5 installed in Win 10 64 last month brand new with no Prefs set up), and recorded 12 bars with about 40 notes. When I copy and paste them to extend the track from where they end, the resultant pasted notes are all white and do not play even though velocity bars under them all have data.
In searching for “white notes” in the Knowledgebase, of course I get a slew of “white” hits and even more “notes” hits (since inexplicably “String Literal” is apparently a foreign term to the Advanced Search option), and weeding through the mass of pages find a couple of references to muted notes; none seemingly applicable since the unmute “X” does nothing when I use it. So I don’t see how they became muted, nor how to unmute them if that’s the problem.
Thanks for any help on what might be happening and how to avoid this in the future when simply copying and pasting notes in a new editing session.
