I’m cleaning up a midi piano part in Cubase 8 and ran into a very weird problem. There was one small area where, no matter what I did, I couldn’t make a couple chords go away. I isolated the half-bar area by splitting it off, and even removed it. Still, the notes sounded. I checked the beginning and ends of surrounding areas. No notes written, but they still sounded.
I checked the midi event list – no notes at the times I hear them. All other tracks empty at this timepoint.
Then I noticed that the track was record-enabled. I turned it off and played back. The notes went away!
Apparently, Cubase seems to automatically enable the track whenever I go into the piano roll to edit. The notes come back then, but when I leave the piano roll (and it’s enabling of the track), they go away.
Anyone else found this problem? I’m mystified why it is doing this – though I’m grateful it’s just happening in this one place.
