I use Cubase to produce a world-wide syndicated radio broadcast. I need to produce eight 30-minute broadcasts per day. One of the requirements is that I need to place a 5-second gap in the broadcast for local stations to insert their call letters.
The automation system needs to know where in each broadcast where the gap begins. That time is defined in seconds and milliseconds, and is part of the file name.
With Cubase, I need to use an Excel spreadsheet to convert from minutes:seconds.milliseconds to total seconds.milliseconds.
For Example I see this value in Cubase - “00:20:05.122” What I need is total seconds and milliseconds like this - “1205122”
Wavelab has an option buried deep that will show me that. A few other DAWs show that value as well.
Is there a way to have Cubase display that? It would not only save me a lot of time, but it could also help me prevent errors - like I had on Monday’s broadcast
