Simplified CC recording affects all lanes, including the ones previously recorded with steps

Steps to reproduce:

  • Record automation with steps.
  • Change new controller events to Ramp and record new automation.

Expected behavior:

  • Only the new recorded data should be simplified.
  • Additionally, it would be desirable to be able to simplify data previously recorded with steps. Ex: Selecting a range β†’ Simplify CC Automation.

I mentioned this here in the context of pitch bend issues, but I think it deserves its own issue as it is not related to pitch bend only and makes the feature dangerously destrcuctive and not very practical.

Can someone else confirm this behavior?

Can anyone at Steinberg (and anyone else who wants to join) please confirm that you can reproduce this?

This was one of the features I was really looking forward to, but it’s unusable like this.
It is really frustrating that things are being released in such a state in a profressional software.


Confirmed and reported to Steinberg. Thank you.

Thanks Martin!

Just as an additional note, this also happens within the same lane.
Recording with Step, and then switching it to Ramp, modifies the previously recorded automation in a destructive way.

I know, I tested this scenario and reported it. :wink:

Thank you!
