In my never-ending quest to get SOME attention to the fraught state of working with multiple CPRs.
Open a CPR.
Go to the end of a track, say ‘Piano’ and noodle some junk for another song. Totally unrelated.
Now… create a new, Empty CPR just to dump yer idea for later use. Here are just some of the challenges
a. I’m still in the original CPR. I select the MIDI event for ‘Piano’ and Ctrl-C to copy it. Great.
b. Now I go to the new CPR. I -can- create an empty MIDI track for ‘Piano’ without having to Activate. (Yea!)
c. But notice that the cursor in the new (empty) CPR is pointing at Bar 348… the same bar as in my original CPR. IOW: Cubase isn’t tracking the new CPR cursor position independently of the old one. What I -expect- is that when I create a new CPR, the cursor should be at BAR ONE. Uno. Ein.
d. And look at that? There is already a Selection Range. And guess what? It’s also grandfathered in from the original CPR. Again, Cubase isn’t starting off with an independent set of locators.
I could go on (there are many other settings that carry over), but you get the idea. If Cubase can’t allow for multiple ACTIVE CPRs, at the very least, when you create a new CPR, it should default to a ‘clean slate’ and not carry over settings from any other open CPRs.
And then there’s the issue where, even though I haven’t activated the new CPR, when I close it to go back to my original CPR, Cubase -still- goes through the ‘re-loading’ crap which takes 2-3 minutes. Grrrrrrr.
