I know there are plugins and I thought about mixing it down, but if I wanted to edit stuff on the fly… without plugins. Maybe I just need a plugin.
BTW do you guys encounter a lot of bugs in Cubase? Maybe it’s just me but whenever I use the Retrologue synth that comes with Cubase I always seem to be facing some new bug. Like I just loaded that synth on three separate tracks and suddenly they stopped making sound and when I went into the vst dialog with all the knobs on the synths, the knobs would intermittently move to strange positions. No automation. I also went into the midi editor and clicked on the notes to try to trigger the synth but they didn’t make a sound like they usually do. This happened twice to me on the same session, and once a restart of Cubase fixed the problem, and the second time a restart wouldn’t work and I had to reload the synth.
Oh and also, again with retrologue, when entering notes into the key editor, and then trying to move them up and down, the note will move up and down but the pitch preview won’t change, unless (while keeping hold of the note) you move the note back up to the position you dragged it from and past that position, then the pitch will begin to change.
Man these bugs are hard to deal with!!!
I feel like Cubase is unreliable.
