    1:15:20 The reason he couldn't render the part in place was because cubase doesn't let you render in place any parts on tracks that are muted. And the track was muted while activating some of the additional outputs for some reason.


    Awesome as ever! Love this! I have 2 question though. At 1:26:23 you see the channel setting with the round knobs. Mine are sliders but used to be knobs too. How do I change that back and what did I do in the first place (secret button?) And when you discussed midi at 1:45:00 a question came to mind. Why doesn't midi get saved in the pool like audio files. I often record drums (midi) via my e-drums, delete a part, drum another and than it's hard to get the previous part back. Is there a way to add midi to the pool? Thanks and looking forward to the December episode! Greetings from The Netherlands!

    From Cincinnati. Would I be better served to hook my Yamaha M08 directly via midi out to midi in on my Mac? I have never been able to figure out how to access my M08's library in Cubase.
