Hi Mr. Whirly,
though I have not heard back on how the HALion sample browser import method was going, (no news is good news?), I went ahead and decided to try your mediabay method and can confirm your findings. Upon dragging and dropping an RX2 from the Cubase mediabay into a HALion 5 slot, 2 slots are actually occupied. One slot contains a slice player module and all slices listed accordingly ‘outside of a layer’ and the other slot is the same, but everything is contained inside a layer. I have no clue why this is and I don’t think it should be this way. Cubase and HALion integration should be a flawless venture and to have two slots occupied for every single import is just silly I think. It is a waste of space and is very cluttered looking.
I believe this may be a bug, or some strange preference, or setting, that perhaps we both have enabled to allow this to happen.
Can someone official from Steinberg, please chime in on this and let us know why two slots are occupied from a single RX2 import from the Cubase Mediabay, though dragging and dropping from UVI Workstation, the HALion browser, or any other method, only takes up the one slot like expected? If there is an issue, I would hope it would be solved in an upcoming update, as though I don’t use the Cubase mediabay often for this feature, I would like to know it won’t behave like it currently does if I do.
Thanks for bringing this up, hopefully it gets some light shone on it, either for a fix, or at the very least an explanation about why.
