[SOLVED] Cubasis 3 - Overdub and Looper recording modes question midi changes overlaying each other (iPad iOS)

I was always ‘annoyed’ with Cubasis V2 when i (RE)record a drum pattern to e.g. fix a mistake in the beat.
The added midi info was always layered or overdubbed, whatever it is called, with those additional MIDI information
on top of the old ones. So if i redo that 3 times i have 3 midi parts on top of each other.

So, this should be now different in Cubasis 3 as it has these “new recording modes”, but i can’t get it to work.
What am i doing wrong, or is that now, a bug in the new version?

Thanks for any feedback to everybody or especially to Lars/LSlowak if you may take a look

… but i think that would be ‘hard’ to select e.g. 3 layers as i have to first move them in the track, rearrange and glue them together.

Hi drWhiet,

As of yet, overlaying MIDI events on the same track are played back simultaneously.

Best,
Lars

Thank you very much Lars for that fast answer, but that was not really the question.
Basically i wanted to know how/if a subsequent edit on e.g. a drumtrack/midi track possible is,
WITHOUT layering those 2 edits. (And without doing it in the lower MIDI view). So in the end
to have just one layer instead of e.g. 3 layers. Or is manually gluing them together the only possibility (if that is a possibility)

Hi drWhiet,

Thank you for your message.

Please follow these steps to glue multiple MIDI events into one MIDI event:

  • Tap SELECT, located in the sub menu
  • Tap and hold and move your finger above the MIDI events, you want to glue into a single event
  • Tap the GLUE button

Hope that helps!

Best,
lars

Sorry for maybe being a pain, but No, that does not help.

Because if they are (over)laying over each other you can not select both midi layers
and therefore can not select GLUE.
If i move to above layer just a bit, so i can see and select the second one, they are
glued together BUT wrong/not in sync-

Example:
Record a 4 on the floor drum rhythm with a classic machine.
Stop the recording.
Restart the recording and add hihats with the same classic machine.
Result: Those hihats are than on the same TRACK BUT on a new layer above
of the drum rhythm (and not inside/on that drum layer).

Again, my question as easy as it can write it:
Is there no possibility to add additional notes to an existing midi track,
by overdubbing/RErecording/adding notes (whatever it is called) to the current
midi track without doing that manually in the lower midi panel.

Hi Stefan,

These are the steps:

  • Choose SELECT from the sub menu
  • Tap and hold above the MIDI events to be selected and move the finger slightly
  • Tap GLUE to combine the events into a single event.

YES, TY … that really helped. And so easy, that i did not come up to that solution myself – :blush:

Glad to read this, thanks for the update!

Please add this to the manual. I just searched 30 min or so.
(Manual page 12: Select
Use this button and draw out a selection rectangle to select multiple events or notes. Tap this button again to deactivate it and to enable other options.)
should say Tab and hold.
