Having trouble with MEAP getting track names in Cubase 8 (or later versions)? Especially if it has been working fine in earlier Cubase versions?
The symptoms of this could be that you notice the mouse move to the Inspector instead of to the track that is active. Or that you notice MEAP entering odd things instead of the track name.
This is most likely because you have your Inspector open and the Solo button and background in the inspector looks very similar to the Solo button and background on a selected track.
Simple solution – CLOSE THE INSPECTOR when exporting with MEAP using Cubase 8.x (and onwards).
MEAP gets track names by finding the active Solo button on the selected track and moving the mouse over to get the actual track name.
If MEAP sees something that looks like an active solo button on a selected track it will move to the first image is sees. In Cubase 8 the background in the Inspector has become very similar to the background colour of a selected track.
This update is a maintenance release and addresses a rare issue where the EXPORT Key Command would cause MEAP to hang instead of Exporting. This is due to the Key Command being received very inconsistently by Cubase / Nuendo. Therefore the ini file now uses the Button method again as default. Any users who were having success with KeyCommand method can change back to that method in the ini file if desired.
Also we have completed some test in Cubase 7.5 and MEAP seems to behave normally using the Cubase 7.0 Audio Application option.
Changed default method of hitting EXPORT button (6/7) to use the Button method, due to Key Commands behaving inconsistently.
Re-compiled MEAP with latest compiler (14.0.18)
This is a free update for all registered MEAP users.
Please note, as usual, if you are using any custom MEAP graphics you will need to replace them after installing the update
