Audio Processing and Functions

If you process audio in Cubase, you can always undo changes or revert to the original version. This is possible because processing does not affect the actual audio files.

If you process an event or a selection range, the following happens:

  • A new audio file is created in the Edits folder, within your project folder.

    This file contains the processed audio, and the processed section of the audio clip refers to it.

  • The original file remains unaffected.

    The unprocessed sections still refer to it.


In the Offline Process History dialog, you can undo any processing, at any point and in any order.

Processing is always applied to the selection. This can be events in the Project window in the Audio Part Editor, an audio clip in the Pool, or a selection range in the Project window or in the Sample Editor.

If you select an event that is a shared copy, and therefore refers to a clip that is used by other events in the project, you can decide how to proceed:

  • Select New Version to process the selected event only.

  • Select Continue to process all shared copies.
