In Cubase can I have two clips that are overlapped to play at the same time? Sometimes I find it easier to pile up several samples or clips fully or partially overlapping on a single audio track and hear then all play? I may later bounce all the selected overlapping samples making a single sample. At least his is how I now do it on Studio One. Studio One has the “play overlapping events” in the preferences but prefer working in Cubase.
Re: the 6.5 comping tool - would it work to use that command to make each “lane” an individual “track”? Then surely you could hear all the overlaps you want?
(I don’t know yet how to reverse that process, i.e., take Cubase tracks and combine them so they become “lanes” in one comp, even if they were not recorded together. Someone else will be able to come along and fill that part in …).
Have you tried using the Part Editor? You will need to create multiple Audio tracks first, then add events to the Audio tracks, then select all the events and double click. That will take you to the Part Editor where you will be able to edit the events in a similar way to lanes with overlapping events audible.
Oh, I test very very accurate - but I miss so many things in Studio One. I don´t understand the hype about this DAW.
And in most cases ´play overlapping events´ is absolute confusing when you edit audio.
My opinion. (But I understand your request!)
yes, the Audio Part Editor in Cubase is great! and there is still more to discover… (trust me)
I could not get the Audio Parts to open by double click. What opened was the Sample Editor. I selected the notes then I clicked on Events To Parts then I double clicked and then the Audio Parts Editor came up with the events included.
I overlapped audio events on a single track in the Audio Parts Editor and one played while the other was muted. I tried variations but on a single track could not get both overlapping audio events to play simultaneously.
I am still a novice in Cubase so I must be doing something wrong. Please confirm that you are able to take two audio events on a single track then overlap them and play the top and the bottom audio event simultaneously?
I do like Studio One because it has ARA/Melodyne and I can select in Preferences to “play overlapping events”. In just about all over respects I prefer Cubase. This is the reason I am here asking how I can play overlapping events in Cubase.
The only thing you’re doing wrong is putting the overlapping events on the same track. It is not possible to play two or more events on the same track. Try the following once more:
Create two or more Audio tracks
Put some events on them
Make them into Audio Parts
Select all the Audio Parts (even on different tracks)
You should have multiple tracks showing their events inside the Part Editor
Leave them on their own track and edit in a similar way you would with lanes
I reviewed your previous posts to see if I missed anything.
I tried the fade in/fade out again but was unable to make it work. If I bring in a small clip in the middle of a larger clip can you please try this so that both play. Perhaps I missed something in your suggestion.
Maybe there is an un-documented key shortcut that will allow to play two overlapping clips on the same track.
PS My oversize letters in the previous post was for emphasis. I was not being sarcastic.
OK. I have given up on the idea that in Cubase I can have two clips that are overlapped on a single track to play at the same time. As a compromise I now use two overlapping audio events on separate tracks and they play just fine. To make editing the events more efficient in preferences I chose to enlarge and solo selected events. I however cannot easily get two or three events to bounce and become a single event.
