Same question (and feature request). This seems more like a bug than a lack of a feature, though. if the media bay can sync wav files to tempo on preview, then it should work even better with rex files which take all the guess work out of syncing.
EDIT: Also, if FLAC is officially supported by cubase now, why doesn’t the media bay see flac files?
RX2 files have always been a chore to deal with in Mediabay. They never work. I have been forced to use UVI Workstation since Mediabays inception in Cubase 4 to get it working. We are talking like 4+ years ago now. If it isn’t fixed by now, I am wondering if it ever will be.
The FLAC argument is a good one too, I have never looked into it personally, but they should be supported since Cubase does, unless there is a problem with Mediabay decoding the FLAC on the fly for playback. I hope this can be remedied in the future since I am starting to take advantage more and more of FLAC since I got Cubase 6.5 a couple months back.
Considering that .rx2 files are pre-chopped and contains timing info this is very strange. What’s the problem? How can it be that Steinberg, after several years, still haven’t implemented it properly? Lack of skill? Or will?
It seems to me as if they really don’t want to support .rx2 files.
Propellerheads have a firm hold on the rex format, so it might be a license thing (ever wonder why recycle is still the only rex editor on the market?). On the other hand, Steinberg seem to hate proprietary formats, unless it’s one of their own
You resurrected a 6 month old thread to share that?
So can battery, reason, RMV and a bunch of other programs and VSTi’s, but that’s irrelevant and completely misses the point of the thread, which is:
Why does cubase have problems sync-ing rex files, a format that is inherently tempo sync-ed, when previewing them in the media bay? A program that officially supports rex files (a.k.a. Cubase) should, in fact, support them.
