Observe that the velocity is randomly 65 instead of 127 (which is the correct value).
This happens when using a negative value on Track Delay. When setting to 0, playback is normal.
This is a bug. And it’s been around for quite a while now, so it’s time Steinberg fixes this. It works in all other DAWs that has this feature.
It’s unrelated to the tempo and frequency of the notes. Even in slow tempos, this happens.
It’s a required feature for anyone working with media- or game composition. “Moving the notes back” instead of using negative delay completely destroys the purpose of even running Cubendo in this field of work. This is a deal breaker for me and will require me to (once again) move to another DAW if it’s not fixed.
External clock source doesn’t affect the result.
Even in Direct Offline Processing, Nuendo will print this error into the audio file.
