OK.. pretty boring cubase sx question coming up. Wouldn't normally ask but it has been irritation me for ages now so... When I have a long block with a repeated drum pattern I create a single midi part of a couple of bars (or more if pattern is longer) then repeat it using ghost copies. The problem is - if I want to drop the drum part out for a beat or two then I have to edit one of the ghost parts and convert it to a 'real' part. If I then edit one of the original copies (e.g. put in an extra drum hit) then this'll be reflected in all of the ghost parts but not this real part variation. Is there any way around this? I've tried using automated mute and unmute on the track and leaving the actual midi part intact. This does the trick but causes really annoying problems.. now when I want to listen to another track in solo mode - other tracks all start automatically unmuting themselves :?
