there are several things i’d like to do in cubase and after searching the operation guide pretty extensively i can’t find out how to do them. i was hoping someone w/more experience could point the way.
- i have several takes on several lanes in a single track. i want to distribute the takes to several other tracks at exactly the same time [i.e., make sure their start points don’t move]. there is apparently no way to constrain-move a clip vertically? i tried playing w/‘tool modifiers => drag&drop => constraint direction’ in preferences, but that didn’t do it. i also can’t ‘nudge’ them down to other tracks, because clips in lanes don’t go to separate tracks, they just create brand new lanes in the same track ad infinitum. so, any way to do what i want efficiently?
- how can i hide the track inspector? i often don’t need it, so it ends up taking up valuable screen real-estate i’d prefer to use for track space.
- it seems like cubase is geared mostly toward recording automation, rather than drawing it in. i never record automation, i always draw it in. what i’d like to do is simple - draw a straight line. for example, say i’ve got a volume curve at -5db and i want to raise the volume 3db for exactly 8 measures. the only way i’ve been able to do this is to make distinct points on the curve and raise each point, lining them up as best i can ‘manually’. i’d like to be able to raise both points to the correct volume in one go, w/o having to eyeball the levels and line them up individually. i’ve tried the line tool and the curve tool, but these don’t seem to do what i want.
- is there a way to extend a track selection vertically to include adjacent tracks using only the keyboard? for example, suppose i’m working on track 3, which is selected. using only keystrokes, can i select track 2 and 1 too?
thanks much in advance.
