Reconstructing Missing Edit Files

If a missing file cannot be found, this is normally indicated with a question mark in the Status column in the Pool. However, if the missing file is an edit file (a file that is created when you process audio and that is stored in the Edits folder within the project folder), it may be possible for the program to reconstruct it by recreating the editing to the original audio file.


  1. In the Pool window, locate the clips for which files are missing.
  2. Check the Status column. If the status of the files is “Reconstructible”, the files can be reconstructed by Cubase.
  3. Select the reconstructible clips and select Media > Reconstruct.


The editing is performed and the edit files are recreated.
