In order to solve this you will need an extra bit of software.On the PC (Windows Only), there’s a great free program called X-Button Mouse Control that can fix this major annoyance.Note: You can also scrub by clicking and dragging directly on the video window itself.Unfortunately, Steinberg has decided to reverse their horizontal scrolling standard from every other DAW.In order to fix this, you need to check an option box called ‘Locate When Clicked in Empty Space’.To find this option: If you’re designing to picture, it’s extremely helpful to have the video scrub while dragging an event. In Nuendo’s default mode, the video will not scrub when dragging an event.One option is to simply access the files directly: if you open up a Garageband project, there is a folder called “Media” that contains files of individual audio tracks.As far as I can tell, these merge together the state of a track, meaning that if you have lots of cuts and copies in a track, the file merges them and stores them as a single file for each track.
Nuendo includes some presets to help accommodate users coming from other DAWs.
