i just installed cubase 12 and i have a section of one song (lead break) that is not in another version of the same song but different take.
i want to copy the lead solo from the song that has it to the song that doesn’t have it.
i just want to insert it from the spot i choose (cursor pos) and have it paste the solo part (insert it) and push the rest of the song to the right of where it gets inserted.
now before you tell me to use Paste After, Paste Time or any of those they were not selectable.
here is what i thought should work:
i imported both song versions (mixed downs) to separate tracks—
- make the selection from the version of the song i’m using. Use Ctrl-C to copy the selection (BTW when you use control C it shows NO indication that it worked Ctrl-X does)
- select the other song (imported to a different track)
so i put the cursor where i want the audio from the other song (track) inserted
- when i paste nothing happens. i selected the selection tool and tried to past (instead of the cursor arrow) and it still doesnt paste.
so i try the menus up top to paste and the “Paste” functions in any of the Edit dropdowns are not active to select.
If i do a select (ctrl-c) and paste (ctrl-V) in the SAME PLACE in the song (where i want to copy the audio from - i used ctrl-X to see the cut and ctrl-V to watch the paste) it WORKS!
why can’t i use the paste options in the dropdowns after i make a selection
how should i go about selecting a section of one song or track (not in the same “column”)
and paste it (insert it) into another track/song?
