Have you read the manual?
the manual for cubase? umm noo... lol i guess i should but i hate reading.. i learn more from like videos or somebody showing me..... buuuuttt the problem with manuals is... that they dont know what i have and what my set up is... and i would like someone to personally tell me how to set up my custom cubase thing so i can get it right...
Soooo, if you don't like reading manuals, youuuuu are in the scheits...Soooo toooo speaaaakk..lol
Man, I own Nuendo from version 1.5 and now I got N5 not too long ago. And guess what? I still had to and still do spend many hours reading and learning
about those new functions from that manual. Idealy, you should now all functions and procedures by heart to be able to concentrate on music or mixing, etc..
You can achieve that only by repeatedly consulting and learning from this 700 pages manual.
This is just a small part of the trade you have to go through.
Otherwise you end up in a forum, asking for help with a problem that is caused by the weakest link of your setup: the user....LOL...
If you spend as much time with the book to find out about the metronom as I have to write this post, you will be able to fix it yourself and for the rest of your blessed life....
Check your project window....at the top of the window there is a slider to set the size of your time/beat for start/end of your recording...try dragging that slider to the right to like 4-5minutes or beats and see if the metronome plays then all the way through..that is in the manual and real easy to find just do a search in the PDF for metronome and it will tell you every option that can be adjusted and set for that....Pg85 I believe...
ok thanks guys.... and i know i should read the manual and stuff, but i honestly just dont have the time or attention span to read all that lol... i watch alot of videos to try and learn, but you guys are correct, its user error im sure.... ill try that and see if it works and let you guys know.... thanks!!
But the manual has an index. And also if in PDF you can use the search feature for key words. You don't have to read the whole thing in one sitting.

I know reading is turning into a lost ability these days...LOL...youTube and video learning is much more entertaining and not as boring!1...Heheh
One thing that might help is just opening the PDF Operations manual and doing a "search" ("Find" in PDF) for whatever topic your struggling with like the metronome...I don't think anybody could read and comprehend everything in that manual it is extremely detailed and explains every button/option contained in Cubase!
I'm still trying to figure out the Warp features and all the editing options and then my eyes glaze over and I start fading fast and go back to playing my keyboard! LOL....I fully understand...
If you can't get the metronome to work...just focus on reading that stuff and it will explain every feature for the metronome...I personally never use it as it is way too annoying....LOL
If you're too lazy to read a few paragraphs.... find another hobby
I am looking to buy a trained monkey that can assist me in my recording project. You see, I do most of my tracking alone and get tired of pushing buttons. Just need the monkey to learn how to push record, undo record, play/stop and rew/ffw. So, if anyone has a pet trained monkey...I pay good money!! If the monkey can help me figure out this metronome thingy, then I will pay even more!! Look for that one on youtube ;-)
You must read to learn these thingys... or at least hack at it till you get it. Asking more questions doesn't hurt, but it also just begets more questions.
