"Not a bug, just something I probably set up years ago and forgot how. "
@downsizer: Thanks, that was it! And like you, I neither remembered this weird kind of split setup, nor was I able to find this solution by searching “metronome” or “precount” in the inbuilt Cubasis help/manual: the solution simply does not show up that way.
So it looks to me as an issue of bad programming to have it as it is now, even if it is no bug.
From my view it’s just counter-intuitive and irritating
- to have metronome options in the general settings, but then the settings don’t work as expected, before you haven’t found and activated another setting buried in a submenu of tempo settings (where hardly anybody will assume activating metronome precount without proper hints)
- not to have precount (with options ofr length in the settings) ACTIVE as default after fresh installs: that’s simply the BASIC recording option for everyone, before activating special recording modes, and it either simply should be on as default
- and finally not to have a clear cut paragraph about ALL metronome options, including precount options, at one(!) place (“metronome”) in the help file
Glad I got it working again, and thanks for your help, downsizer!
