@Dr.Strangelove You’re right - the automatic muting only happens during the current cycling record. And it doesn’t mute previous recordings.
And I agree, not having that option just creates extra manual work when recording midi. Should definitely be an added feature.
Side note: This hadn’t bothered me much before, since typically I work with midi very differently than with audio:
- With midi, I comp quite rarely, and just edit the midi notes to fix mistakes.
- If a midi part sucks so badly, that editing is too much work, I delete it before re-recording it (potentially in stacked cycle mode).
- And if I want to try a musically alternative part, while keeping the old one, I typically use track versions rather than lanes.
But I totally get it, why this Cubase limitation is very annoying for more audio-like recording and editing midi work flows. As you previously said, it should just be another mode for working with midi.
