Hey guys, I’m new to Cubase, and today my session was ruined by the music mode/linear features.
There’s a tempo change in the middle of the song, and so I took the tempo track and animated a jump from 130 up to 160. (not knowing about music mode at the time). As soon as I did this, the vocals slowed down and the drums no longer matched the metronome. (Perhaps musical mode was on for some tracks and not for others? Idk)
Plus, everything that was recorded at the new speed is completely messed up if I turn the “Activate Tempo Track” button off in the transport section. I’ve read up on musical mode vs. linear, and toggling them seems to make no difference in the slowed down speed of the vocals or the misaligned drum tracks.
Needless to say, I’m absolutely amazed at how much of a mess this has caused, and I have no idea how to fix things or ensure that my tracks are playing in the tempo that they were recorded in. In the pool window, I had some weird tempo numbers going on, so I set them to 130. Musical Mode is off on everything as well.
Can someone please point me in the right direction here? I had to stop the whole session early for everybody today because we couldn’t find anything that seemed to help the situation.
Thanks in advance
