This may have been already touched on. In Cubase 5.5.3 under File>Preferences>Record>Audio>Create Regions, Create Events…you could select a particular mode here. i would select create events here. And from there i would have a key assigned (O)to change Event to Part (only when i didn’t need to use vari-audio) . In Cubase 6 this feature in the File>Preferences window seems to be non-existent. i’m pretty new to Cubase 6, but i just don’t find this feature. Was it discontinued? Any and all help on this is highly appreciated. And many thanks in advance.
