Calculating Hitpoints

When you add an audio file to your project by recording or by importing, Cubase can automatically detect hitpoints.


Enable Automatic Hitpoint Detection is activated in the Preferences dialog (Editing—Audio page).


  1. Import or record an audio file.

    Cubase automatically detects hitpoints.


    If your audio file is very long, this may take a while.

  2. Select the audio event in the Project window, and make sure the zoom factor is high enough.


The hitpoints calculated for the selected event are shown in the Project window.

After Completing This Task

You can manually edit detected hitpoints or add further hitpoints in the Sample Editor.
