In the above video, the youtuber drag a mp3 into Cubase, and there is no import options window( to select the sampling rate and bit depth) pop up?

Hi,

Cubase always converts the file to WAV. The Import Option dialog gives you some other options. If you want to use one settings forever, you can change it in the Preferences > Editing > Audio > On Import Audio Files. Here you can set it up.

Thank you. The youtube might cut the conversion process.

Hi,

Or the dialog doesn’t show up, because of other settings in the preferences.

Thank you.
