I’ve experienced this a number of times lately. I know the tracks were there because I edited them. Plus, when I try to add them again I get a message that they already exist. Nonetheless, they’re no longer visible despite all the resizing / toggling / jiggling tricks I can come up with to make the screen refresh.
After an extended period Googling for information on this, the consensus seemed to be, “Your project is corrupt.” Fortunately, I had backup versions so the loss of data was minimal. That said, it’s somewhat disquieting to live in constant fear of these tracks randomly disappearing. With that in mind, I have a couple of questions.
Have others encountered the vanishing tempo / signature track problems? If so, is there a solution or is the project in fact corrupt beyond repair?
If the problem is project corruption, what sorts of known issues are there that would cause this and, more importantly, are there steps I can take in my workflow to avoid corruption?
I’m running the latest patched version of 7.0x . I move between two environments - my desktop and my laptop, both of which are running Windows 7 32 bit.
My system has been very stable and reliable in both environments. The tempo / signature problem is the only project issue that I’ve encountered.
Any insights would be most appreciated.
