I linked a group of instruments to a VCA fader, instruments were mixed in a specific way, then I applied a volume automation to the VCA fader. Everything works properly until I close and re-open the session. I notice that all instruments faders went up to 0dB where the VCA is before the automation kicks in.
Is this an issue? Or am I misusing the VCA fader?
Hi and welcome,
What Cubase version exactly do you use, please?
I am using the latest 9.5
There’s an issue …
Saving the project with the playhead at a position where the VCA is after the automation ride, when re-open the project, the automation will never work as aspected.
If you have a ride from 0 to infinite (and saving with the playhead after ride), the faders associated with the VCA will still at infinite when re-open the project.
I’ve reported to Steinberg two weeks ago but no response.
To fix it (temporarily), add an automation node to the source track, which is controlled by the VCA, before you save.
