Quite often I will make up parts out of samples, which I then will repeat and make into larger parts, 1-, 2-, 4-bar loops, etc.
To make up the “extra” space at the end, I usually double-click on the track to create an empty part, then select all the samples and the part, use Audio > Bounce Selection to create a single new audio part which is the right length, and then away I go…
… Except Cubase 6 has changed this. If you do Audio > Bounce Selection it now no longer includes the empty part as silence, so instead of getting this:
I get this:
Audio file for as long as the audio lasted, and then the blank audio part ‘behind’ it. (Scroll right to see the end, audio is selected, part isn’t)
This seems a backwards step to me - the C5 way of working was quick and simple. To do the same in C6 you need to make your part longer than it should be, then cut/trim it to length. Doing it in C5 was a piece of cake as more often than not the locators would already be set to allow the right length silence to be added.
Why has this been done? Anyone else find it annoying?
