Missing tools in the Audio Part Editor

Post by TavernSenses » Mon Apr 02, 2018 5:57 pm

In the toolbox of the Audio Part Editor there is no scissors, mute, or eraser button. How can they be made to appear?

ADDED: it appears I'm opening the Sample Editor. In the Audio menu, "Audio Part Editor" is greyed out. It's not available. How come?
DAW: Cubase Elements 9.5, Libraries: EastWest Symphonic Gold keyboard: StudioLogic NumaCompact2, PC: 6 cores AMD Ryzen 5 1600 processor, 16 GB RAM, X370 MSI motherboard, OS: Windows 10, audio hardware: no separate sound card, pair of Logitec PC speakers / subwoofer + headphones (both with 3.5mm stereo plug)

Because you quite obviously don' t click on an audio part, but an event. Start reading the manual and you'll learn a lot of useful things...

You may or may not have noticed that the manual is quite good at naming things, but not at explaining things. I like to think that this forum fills the void.

This part of Cubase is a bit tricky. Watch a few videos on youtube. The tools are there, but when they show up and how to use them will take a little practice. Be patient and the system will fall into place.
