I've been using Montage CONNECT to save Montage Performances in the Cubase MediaBay as VST Presets. It occurred to me today that I might be able to use the MediaBay to keep track of which Performances were used in which Cubase Project.

It turns out that Cubase Projects also appear in the MediaBay as type "Project." I found a "Project Name" attribute already-defined in the MediaBay. So I figured I could just enter the name of the project that was using the Performance into the Performance's "Project Name" attribute.

When I tried to do this, I found out that the possible values for the "Project Name" attribute seem to be pre-defined in a drop-down menu. The entries in the drop-down menu are weird. Two of them are names of projects of mine. I have no idea where the rest of the names came from. And I couldn't find a way to edit that drop-down menu to get rid of the entries I don't need and add the names of the projects I want to use as attribute values.

I've attached a picture of that drop-down menu. My two projects are "Stardust," and "Merry Little Xmas Doo-Wop."

I also tried defining a new attribute. I succeeded in this, but I can't edit the attribute values for that one either.

It seems to me that I may be making a fundamental error and how you're supposed to use the MediaBay. Is there a way to do what I'm trying to do?

May I suggest you pose your question to Steinberg via your MySteinberg Account concerning MediaBay.

Figured it out thanks to a phone call from Steinberg Support. I had also posted the question on the Steinberg Cubase forum, but no help was available there.

It turns out that if you double-click in the value field of an attribute, you get a blinking vertical cursor and can enter whatever text you want. My problem was that I'm running Cubase 9 Pro on a Microsoft Surface 3 tablet, and using the stylus instead of a mouse. For whatever reason, double-tapping on that field does not enable text entry.

But once I knew (thanks to Steinberg Support) that double-clicking with a mouse would enable text entry, I did some experimentation and discovered that a single-tap would highlight the field, and then hitting Shift-Enter on the keyboard would enable the text entry.

So I'm not stuck with what's in the drop-down menu anymore. It's still a mystery why there are items in that menu like "french connection," but it's probably not worth the time and effort to figure out where those came from and eliminate them.

Or maybe by displaying "french connection," Cubase was anticipating my download of the Canadian 1.51. :-)
