My grievance is that when you update or buy a new version, you should be able to open existing projects and have them play the same events - there shouldn’t be anything playing or not playing than previously.
I like to work within audio parts. I understand there has been a big push in recent years to duplicate those resources in the project window, but I am actually fine using the audio part editor.
When(in C5?) they implemented the system where you could click on the event middle bottom to have it play (as opposed to merely playing the lower most unmuted event), I found stuff playing that hadn’t been previously - because events muted within the editor at the bottom of the column of events were no longer causing no sound to play from that part - unmuted event sections above the muted events were playing back.
Well, that cost me a few hours in the record I was mixing right then.
Now, in C7.5 I find muted events within a part are again muting the entire part until I go in and click on the little event activator of the event I want to play. Again, this has cost me a few hours, and probably more as I have a couple of records I am working on at the moment.
Honestly, I don’t really care which way it is, but you really shouldn’t have to check through all the editing you’ve done to make sure Cubase is honoring decisions you’ve already made.
