Here is what i want to do.
I want to do a drum track in the drum editor and save the pattern i just made. I was assuming it was going to be a matter of doing it and the drum editor would give me the option of saving in a file what i just did but it does not. I then go in cubase and select the clip i just made and thought i would be able to save it easily, no such thing. When i export the clip and bring it back i opens in halion. The only way i got around that is to minimize Cubase and drag the clip outside on the desktop. It does exactly save it as i would like. A midi file with no extra junk that i can drag back in and it opens up with groove agent only.
At this point i am not looking to bounce/render anything in place as i want to be able to tweak later. I literally spent more than half a day looking at groove agent videos and drum editors videos and everyone stops short of telling you how to save your pattern so they must know that it is a pain to do. I even looked at booth manuals. Groove agent’s manual tells you to go to the cubase manual and in the cubase manual, yet again they stop short of telling you how to save your new, modified drum pattern. I really hate this. Cubase pro is an expensive piece of software and it’s a literal pain in the arse to get some things done. I don’t want a mcGuiver work around. I want a right click, export clip (as it is) solution like Studio one, Like Bitwig and probably like most other DAWS.
and this is only “one” of my beef i discovered when i went back into cubase. I just feel it is tedious and not worth my time, but i like groove agent a lot and wish i could not let the software just waste away.
