I spent some time today working with the new pattern feature. I got it to work, but I ran into something odd.
I was working with Cubase 10 Pro. I had three MIDI tracks in Cubase that I wanted to simultaneously record into the pattern. So I would set things up and hit "play" in Cubase. The tracks would play for the number of bars I set on the Montage, but sometimes nothing would get recorded in the pattern.
It took me a while to figure out what the crucial thing was. In the pattern, I had the three parts I wanted to record into set with KBD CTL on. I was under the impression that this was all it took, but I was wrong. In addition, one of those parts needs to be selected (i.e. hilited). Once I had that figured out, everything worked.
This extra thing seems superfluous to me. I've already got KBD CTL set on the parts, why does one of them have to be selected? Is there a good reason for this? If not, I think it would be good to just allow KBD CTL to control this, without the extra step. If that's how things were, it would have saved me an hour or so of doing various experiments to work out what was going on.
