I’ve just gotten started with Cubasis. I watched all the Steinberg video tutorials on YouTube and from having worked quite a bit with Cubase in the past, I’m up and running for the most part ok, but I’m having a few issues that I thought folks on here might be able to help me with. I looked over the known issues FAQ in case any of these are bugs, but that doesn’t seem to be the case, so I must be confused about the way some things are meant to work.
Metronome Pre-count isn’t working. I’ve set the pre-count to 2 bars but instead of beginning the recording after 2 bars it begins recording immediately. I made this setting in the Setup window. Is there something else I need to set to get this to work?
Pads are not recording properly in chord mode. Using the drum pads with an electric piano, I programmed a series of chords to a song, then did a MIDI recording, performing on the pads. (Not the pads on top of the keyboard, but the drum pads which can be programmed with chords when a piano is loaded). The MIDI recording only recorded the root note of each chord and only plays back that root note instead of the programmed chord. When I use the separate, smaller pads across the top of the keyboard, this sort of recording works properly.
When I do a loop drum kit recording, recording each drum on separate passes, Cubasis is recording each pass to a separate MIDI file. The earlier files are either covered up or greyed out. I can’t figure out how to select the earlier passes to view and edit them in the MIDI editor, nor how to merge all the takes into one file. I tried used the Select tool and dragging a box around all visible MIDI regions on that track and choosing the Glue command, but this doesn’t merge the layers of MIDI into one region. How do I do this?
thanks for any help…
