My (incorrect) understanding of record cue next is that it it should, in theory, select the next unrecorded cue number in the list... so if i have
cue 1/1cue 1/2cue 1/3cue 1/4
record cue next should in theory select cue 1/5
However, i've found that if i'm in cue 1, and i say record cue next, cue 2 shows up in the command line... Is this really what's supposed to happen in this situation?
beyond that, if if i have more than 1 list (say cue list 2 is loaded in the master and i'm editing...), record cue next always seems to select my next available cue in my lowest cue list number...
record cue 2/1record cue 2/2record cue 2/3record cue next = 1/x
This definitely seems wrong to me... or am i crazy?
The behaviour is what is expected - it is based on the selected cue (what is in your command line), not what is in the master playback. So, even if cue list 2 is in your master playback, if cue 1/2 is on your command line, [Record][Next] will populate with 1/3.
Hope that helps-
hmm... that seem like odd behavior, considering how record next works when recording presets or palettes, or when patching- since it select the next available empty spot (even though it will select the next at the end of the list, regardless of blank spaces in between- which i understand)
how 'bout a
record shift next
to get to the next available whole number... or something like that...
Actually, the logic is basically the same. With Presets and Palettes, though, there's a pretty high chance that your next one from your current "pointer" is the next free one.
I think your Shift-Next idea is an interesting one, though!
