    2020.05 Early Access installer now available! We're pleased to announce the Early Access for 2020.054! This release introduces dynamic waveform scaling when changing clip automation, offline activation, enhancements to mono plug-in support , improved mouse wheel handling, lots of automation enhancements, optimizations, and over 50 bug fixes. We'd love for you to check it out before we drop the official public version, which should be in roughly a week. This time we're also providing an easy rollback installer should you need to quickly revert to the last public release for any reason. Please note that Early Access installers are update installers, which only update from a specific version. To install the 2020.05 Early Access build, you must be on the latest public release of 2020.04. Download Cakewalk 2020.05 EA installer Should you need to revert to the 2020.04 release, you can download the Cakewalk 2020.04 Rollback installer. If you haven't already done so, please read about the Early Access Program before participating. Thanks again for your participation! The Bakers 2020.05 Highlights New features Dynamic waveform scaling when changing clip automation When Display Clip Fade/Envelope Attenuation is enabled in Edit > Preferences > Customization - Display, Cakewalk dynamically updates the waveform amplitude when changing clip fades, clip gain automation and clip pan automation. The waveform display is pre clip FX Rack and only applies to clip automation, not track automation. Additionally, clip gain and pan envelopes are not applied to active Region FX clips. i.e. If you have a clip gain envelope on a Region FX clip, it will be ignored unless the effect is bypassed. The Display Clip Fade/Envelope Attenuation option is now also available as a key binding (under “Track View”). Offline activation Note: This will be available in the next update of BandLab Assistant, which will be released soon. Activation is the process by which Cakewalk validates that your software is genuine and being used in accordance with the license agreement. Cakewalk can now be activated by an online or offline process. Cakewalk will operate in Demo mode until it is activated, and saving and exporting will be disabled. A toast notification appears at the bottom of the screen to inform you if Cakewalk has not been activated yet. If your computer is connected to the internet, click the toast notification to open BandLab Assistant and activate Cakewalk. If Cakewalk is installed on a computer that is not connected to the internet, you can use offline activation as long as you have access to another computer that is connected to the internet. To use offline activation In Cakewalk, go to Help > Offline Activation > Export Activation Request to open the Save activation request dialog box. Select the folder you want to save the activation request file to, then click Save. Cakewalk saves a Activation request.crq file. This file is encrypted and machine-specific, and can only be used to activate Cakewalk on the machine that was originally used to create the Activation request.crq file. By default, Cakewalk appends a timestamp to the file name, using the following format: <Month><Day><Year>_<Hour><Minute>. For example: 052120_1157Activation request.crq. Copy the Activation request.crq file to removable media, such as a USB flash drive, that you can transfer to another computer that is connected to the internet. Using an online computer, open BandLab Assistant and sign in with your BandLab ID and password. Click the Apps tab. Under Cakewalk by BandLab, click the drop-down arrow next to the Open button, then click Process Offline Activation Request. If activation is granted, BandLab Assistant generates an Activation response.dat file. Copy the Activation response.dat file to removable media that you can transfer back to your offline Cakewalk computer. In Cakewalk, go to Help > Offline Activation > Import Activation Response to open the Import activation response dialog box. Select the Activation response.dat file and click Open. If the response file is valid, Cakewalk is activated. Early Access toast notification Early Access availability is checked whenever normal updates are checked, and a toast notification appears if an Early Access build is available. The Early Access Program provides pre-release versions of Cakewalk to the public for general testing and issue reporting. We provide Early Access builds to help us get better real world test coverage from users, which is useful to improve the reliability and quality of our releases. Participation is 100% voluntary. Please read this topic to learn more about the program. Enhancements Mono plug-in support changes This release greatly improves the FX Rack handling with respect to mixing and matching mono/stereo plug-ins. These improvements are across the board and work in track/bus/clip FX Racks, FX chains and the ProChannel. Bypassing or removing plug-ins in an FX Rack, Rack bypass or global FX bypass operations will now revert any mono/stereo interleave changes caused by the plug-in, and recalculate delay compensation properly. Changing the mono/stereo interleave from the track strip button now updates the FX Rack routing correctly. (Note: this is dependent on whether the ProChannel bin is pre FX Rack and if it contains mono plug-ins) Pitch shifted audio and distortion were symptoms of issues that are fixed in this release. This could occur under multiple scenarios, such as moving plug-ins, bypassing, deleting or undoing. Improved mouse wheel handling Console view vertical scrolling via mouse wheel is less prone to inadvertently adjusting parameter values if there is a brief pause during the scroll gesture (for example, while vertically scrolling with the mouse wheel, suddenly it starts scrolling the volume slider instead). The internal timer that waits for inactivity before treating the next mouse wheel movement as a new operation has been increased from 500ms to 1,000ms. This ensures that the current scroll operation doesn't change mid-gesture. In the Console view, tooltips dynamically show values when changing parameters via mouse wheel. FX Racks for tracks, buses and clips can be scrolled via mouse wheel. Increased contrast of ghosted envelopes The color contrast of ghosted automation envelopes has been increased, making them easier to see against the dark Clips pane background. Clicking on the bus pane now automatically sets the bus focus strip This facilitates copying and pasting bus envelopes by clicking and pasting. Scrollable Clip FX Rack in Inspector Clip FX Racks in Inspector now display up to 10 plug-ins and are scrollable using both mouse wheel and the scroll bar. Improved support for recording automation via numeric input When recording automation, envelope nodes can now be recorded by typing a value in the pop-up edit controls in the Inspector, Console view, Track view, ProChannel EQ, and EQ fly-out module. The numeric input will be recorded as a Jump during automation recording. To show the numeric input pop-up, give focus to a control or its value display, then press F2, or double-click the value display. Improved recording automation of synth parameters Multiple synth parameters can be recorded in a single record pass and all envelopes are now retained. While loop recording, in order to avoid clutter the automation preview only shows the last loop record pass. All recording envelopes will be displayed when you stop playback. Improved support for copying and pasting automation envelopes Automation envelopes can now be easily copied and pasted from tracks to buses and vice versa. To copy track automation to a bus, first select and copy the envelope from the track, then click on the target bus or lane and paste. You can also copy and paste bus automation to tracks the same way. Moving or copying arrangement sections now properly manages copying and pasting the associated bus and synth automation envelopes. Bus delete stability improvements Bus deletion can now be performed while the transport is rolling without stopping the audio engine. Also an intermittent crash and app shutdown on undoing bus deletion was solved. Optimizations When using workspaces, projects now open with the correct initial UI layout, rather than opening with the project layout and then visibly switching to the workspace layout. This is faster and prevents unwanted flicker. Many improvements and optimizations for editing mono effects in FX Racks Improvements to drag and drop between clip and track FX racks Solved multithreading race condition leading to latency when using Aggressive thread scheduling model Bug fixes Stability Crash on undo and redo of automation recording of synth parameters Deleting or undoing bus delete operation can crash User reported crash in 2020.04 Waves OVox plugin crashes on project load Crash when using SmartSwipe gesture in Piano Roll view track list Potential crash on startup unless specific Windows DPI settings are used Memory leak when using the Aggressive Thread Scheduling model Automation Unexpected envelopes created when moving section in project Bus automation copies to tracks unexpectedly with (Arranger) Section move Duplicate automation lanes can be created for unedited automation Draw Tool draws random points when drawing automation outside of lane Draw Tool not working as expected on bus automation in user project Stop at Project End not respected in projects with automation after deleting buses or replacing synths Automation behaves incorrectly after manually typing in a value Automation not fully removed when deleting bus Pasting bus automation should not rely on Copy/Paste Special Pasting bus automation doesn't change the edit filter leading to hidden envelopes Automation envelopes appear out of scale Cannot copy synth automation to buses Draw Tool does not update envelopes preview during playback Adding nodes by typing values during write automation over existing envelope causes unexpected results Synth automation gets discarded unexpectedly while write recording multiple parameters UI Scale for Synth automation not displaying correctly Clip FX in Inspector does not display more than 6 plug-ins Hit zone for Draw Tool on buses does not match Insert Soft Synth Options dialog should remember the checked/unchecked state of the Enable MIDI Output option User reported issue with zoom fader control becoming stuck [Chinese version] Overlapping text in Preferences > Customization - Display Tooltips for controls in the Console view do not update when changing values by mouse wheel Incorrect Track view tooltips when creating a new project with the Basic workspace Console view control tooltips show incorrect value and obscure value label when adjusted via mouse wheel Track view horizontal zoom slider window is shown in wrong position on secondary monitor Now Time cursor draws incorrectly Arranger Arranger options in Keyboard Shortcuts should specify “Arranger Track” Arranger Section time-format needs to be backwards compatible Bus Edit Filter changes unexpectedly after moving Section Section operations do not always move/copy track/bus automation Duplicating Section won't duplicate MIDI envelopes for Instrument tracks Double-click rename of Arrangement sections should not rewind to start of section during playback Misc.

    My first reactions, based on a quick runthrough. Overall, I think this is a triumph and it will be a major asset to my songwriting efforts in the future. Toontrack has hit it out of the park. I think both basses sound great. Of course they will be coming out with classic basses--but I like the way these two sound. I'm looking more forward to the deluge of MIDI packs. I am a decent piano player, so I don't buy EZKeys MIDI anymore--but I probably will buy bass expansions. I didn't have time to check it out long, but it seems like it has surprisingly little control of effects. As far as I can tell it doesn't come with the usual pedals for reverb, compression, phaser, chorus, etc. Just 8 knobs to tweak the overall presets, of which there are few. The good news is that these 8 knobs auto-map to the ones in Komplete Kontrol. Maybe I'm wrong about this. But most people will be running this through outside effects and Toontrack might have felt that they were better off focusing in other areas. Based on my first explorations, the pattern based, EZKeys part is as awesome as it looks in the videos. Lots of great patterns that sound good and are easy to tweak. It's a better program than EZKeys in a lot of ways, in this regard--you aren't able to see and edit all the MIDI like that. The GUI is very simple. All those things where you drag in sounds--you don't have to read the manual to find them. This thing is a home run with GUI and looks great too. Love the way the basses look. While the basses sound good, they are definitely meant to be programmed and not played. I found all kinds of problems when I played it fast or at high velocities. You get a whiff instead of a note. This is the kind of problem that would be a deal breakers for any quality bass virtual instrument. If you play it slow and are careful with velocities it is fine. But I kicked the tires and Modo Bass, OTS, ujam, the free Ample Sound bass, etc can sleep quietly. No competition here IMHO. But this product is not aimed at people who have played a real bass and have solid piano chops, and have spent years creating and playing bass parts on a keyboard. It is great for what it is intended to do. But it's weird that it doesn't work as well the other way. Oh well, I already have lots of keyswitched instruments to do that. There is a part at the bottom where you can adjust the playing style in various ways. But this feature doesn't work when you play it--the time you need it the most. It only works when you use MIDI to play it.

    This is a good deal (free) but there are a few things you might want to understand. The Boris FX Title Studio and Film Impact Essentials Collection both are plugins for Adobe Premiere/After Effects/etc. The Boris FX plugin also includes OFX support and also works in Resolve, though I've never had a lot of luck with BorisFX plugins and OFX. Film Impact are video transitions and it's a subscription service. This free license for the essentials will expire in one year and stop working completely. Unless you resubscribe. I played with them, they are nice but not exactly amazing and their subscription pricing is crazy. I can't see me using them since I know they will stop working at some point in the future. BorisFX Title Studio is a permanent license. But BorisFX is some what like Waves, only with even worse customer issues. The Continum units (which Title Studio is one) are part of a larger package, but you can buy the parts you want or the whole package. Normally you get a year of support when you buy a unit(more on this in a bit). Which for BorisFX that means any updates that ship during the year you will be able to install and use. But as soon as your license expires, any updates dated after that will not work/can't be used. However, unlike Wave's BorisFX have decided to make it impossible to install multiple versions of Contitunum on one computer. And they only have one master installer now. So you cannot mix and match versions of Continuum unit plugins. So if you bought (like I have) older versions of some of the units you can't have/keep them and install this free Title Studio. If you don't have any BorisFX Continuum units this doesn't really effect you that much, but it was a major pain for me, since the handful of units I had appear to have all expired very recently. I went ahead and upgraded even though I'm not sure Title Studio was worth it. The Continuum stuff is on sale and I was likely to have upgraded sooner or later. But it wasn't exactly cheap just so I could get everything to 2020.5. Now the giant catch on this specific free offer, the license you get for BorisFX Title Studio expires the day you get it. You don't get a year. It is ended today. So if next week they ship a new version of Title Studio you will have to pay for a year of updates in order to use that new version. You can keep using the old version (save the installer I guess) but you won't be able to install the new version nor will you be able to install any other Continuum units you buy in the future (without losing your Title Studio). In the past you could make things work with mixed versions but they seemed to have gone out of their way to make it pretty close to impossible. They also don't offer any upgrade path from a bunch of the units to the full package, which bothers me a lot. I played with Title Studio and to be honest it's kind of unimpressive. It really needs some 3D/video card acceleration support I think. There are better title plugins, even for free this might not be all that awesome.

    We're pleased to announce the 2020.04 release, our biggest release to date which also celebrates two years of active Cakewalk by BandLab development! This release introduces an exciting non-linear Arranger Track feature that is very useful for song creation and creative experimentation. Also included are many other significant feature improvements such as ProChannel module presets, instrument track improvements and many bug fixes, all in keeping with our goal of making CbB as reliable and enjoyable as possible. Thanks, The Bakers For new feature details, see New Features. Should you need to revert to the 2020.01 release, you can download the Cakewalk 2020.01 Rollback installer. 2020.04 Features & Enhancements Behavior changes Add Track menu behavior change: The behavior of the Track(s) counter has changed when inserting a multi-timbral soft synth via the Add Track menu. When Instrument Track Per Output or Split Instrument Track is selected, the Track(s) counter now specifies how many Instrument output tracks to create instead of how many unique instances of the synth to create. Changes to Delete Track: CTRL+DELETE deletes tracks. Delete Track only deletes the focused track if the focused track is not also selected. When a combination of tracks and track folders are selected, the context menu displays Delete Selected Tracks and Folders. Enable/Disable Enhanced Keyboard Editing Mode shortcut is unassigned by default. The default keyboard shortcut (0 on the numeric keypad) to enable/disable Enhanced Keyboard Editing Mode has been removed. To enable/disable Enhanced Keyboard Editing Mode, go to Edit > Preferences > Customization - Keyboard Shortcuts and assign Enhanced Keyboard Editing to an unused keyboard shortcut. Bypass All Audio Effects shortcut is unassigned by default. The default keyboard shortcut (E) to bypass all audio effects has been removed. To bypass all audio effect, do one of the following: Go to Edit > Preferences > Customization - Keyboard Shortcuts and assign Bypass All Audio Effects to an unused keyboard shortcut. Click the Bypass all Effects button in the Control Bar’s Mix module. Horizontal zooming no longer centers Now Time. When zooming with the mouse wheel or CTRL+LEFT/RIGHT ARROW shortcuts, if the Now Time is currently within view, its position will be retained while zooming. If the Now Time is not present in the view, the zoom behavior is unchanged. CTRL+ALT+SPACEBAR is assigned to Preview current arrangement from the Now Time, and no longer plays the next event in the Event List view. Arranger Track Overview The Arranger track is an arrangement tool that provides several workflow benefits: Easily rearrange sections of the entire project as one unit instead of moving individual clips. For example, instantly swap the positions of the first and second chorus for all tracks, or copy the first verse in order to double its duration. Experiment with different song structures in a non-destructive and non-linear manner. For example, does your song work best in AABA, ABAB, or ABAC song form? Define time range sections and sequence them in any order without destructively moving any clip data. You can even save multiple arrangements within each project. Create a color coded overview of the song structure, and use the Arranger Inspector to quickly navigate around the project and jump to song sections. Create arbitrary song sections anywhere on the project timeline, then later string them together for seamless playback. Sections provide an additional way to perform time based selections and edits of the project. Create an unlimited number of arrangements per project, which can all be exported simultaneously. Arranger functionality is distributed across two views: Arranger track. To show or hide the Arranger track, click the Track view View menu and choose Arranger Track Show/Hide, or press A. The Arranger track timeline shows all defined sections. You can drag to create and rearrange sections, then freely move them along the timeline. Any changes in the Arranger timeline are immediately reflected in the Arranger Inspector’s Sections list, and vice versa. Arranger Inspector. To show/hide the Arranger Inspector, click the Show/Hide Arranger button at the top of the Inspector pane, or press ALT+SHIFT+I. An arrangement is comprised of Sections, each spanning a unique time range. Other section properties include name and color, to clearly delineate regions of time and track content by musical function. Important: By default, clicking an Arranger section also selects underlying track events. Clicking again deselects track events, while retaining selection of the section. This behavior allows you to easily determine whether or not track events are included in section edit operations. Note that the selection highlight in the Clips pane indicates selected track events. To disable automatic selection of track events when selecting sections, click the Track view Options menu and disable Select Events with Sections. Arranger Inspector Sections are the building blocks that make up the song. Each section defines a time range in the project, such as Intro, Verse, Chorus, etc. An arrangement is an ordered set of sections. You can sort the sections in any order to define the playback order. To do so, drag the sections from the Sections area down to the Arrangements area in the Arranger Inspector. The Sections area lists all the arranger sections defined in the project’s timeline, from which a custom arrangement can be built. The order of the sections reflect the order in which they appear in the timeline. The Sections list provides an additional way to edit time based selections of the project. Any operation performed in the Sections list is immediately reflected in the project/timeline, and vice versa. To copy all sections to the current arrangement, click the Add All Sections to Arrangement button . If one or more sections are selected, only the selected sections will be copied. The Arrangements area allows you to sequence sections in a non-linear manner without destructively moving any clip data, regardless of which order they appear in the project’s timeline. Defining sections of your song To use the Arranger track, you must first define time range sections such as Intro, Verse, Chorus, etc. Sections can be of any duration, but it is common to start/end them at measure boundaries. New sections can be created by any of the following means: Draw a range within the Arranger track timeline (below the time ruler). Double-click a blank area in the Arranger track. The new section duration is inherited from the last clicked section. Right-click in the Arranger track timeline and select Insert Section Here, Insert Section at Now Time, Span Sections, or From Selection. Click the Add Section button in the Arranger Inspector or Arranger track. Editing sections Drag sections to move them around on the timeline. Drag a section edge to resize the section. Right-click a section to access edit options. Converting markers to sections To convert markers to sections, make a time selection in the time ruler that spans the text markers, then right-click in the time ruler and select Create Sections from Markers. Creating a custom arrangement Sections can be sequenced in any order to create arrangements, without affecting project data. The sections don’t have to live on the project timeline in any specific location or order, because the arrangement determines in which order they are played back. To define the section playback order, drag sections from the Sections list down to the Arrangements list. You can also drag sections directly from the Arranger track. Previewing an arrangement To play the current arrangement, click the Preview button or press ALT+SPACEBAR. During Arranger preview, the main transport Play button shows a small “A” icon to indicate it is playing back an arrangement instead of following the project’s linear timeline, and the active section shows a progress indicator. Committing an arrangement To (destructively) render the current arrangement to the project’s timeline, click the Commit Arrangement to Project button . Exporting arrangements You can export one or more arrangements without first having to render it to the timeline. To do so, click the Arrangements menu and select Export as Audio. ProChannel module presets In addition to saving presets of the entire ProChannel chain (all modules), you can also save and load presets of individual modules. The per module preset controls are located on the left side of each module header bar. To select a module preset Click the module’s category type icon to open the preset menu, then select the desired preset. The category type icon tooltip shows the name of the selected preset. To save a module preset Adjust the ProChannel module controls to the desired settings. Click the module’s category type icon to open the preset menu, then select Save Preset. Type a name in the Save Preset dialog box, then click OK. To select the next preset To select the next preset, do one of the following: Click the Next Preset button . Hold down the CTRL key and click the module’s category type icon. To select the previous preset To select the previous preset, do one of the following: Click the Previous Preset button . Hold down CTRL+SHIFT and click the module’s category type icon. To delete a module preset Click the module’s category type icon to open the preset menu, then select the preset you want to delete. Click the module’s category type icon to open the preset menu again, then select Delete Preset. Copy/paste settings between ProChannel modules You can copy settings from any ProChannel module and paste the settings to any other instance of the same module. on any track or bus. There are two ways to copy/paste settings between identical modules: Drag and drop In the Console view, show the ProChannel for both the track/bus you want to copy from, and the track/bus you want to paste into. Hold down the CTRL key, and drag from the source module’s header bar (i.e., the module title) to the target module. The source and target ProChannel modules must be identical. Note: If the target module has not been enabled/initialized yet, it will automatically become enabled after pasting. However, if the target modules has been manually disabled, then it will remain disabled after pasting. Copy/Paste menu commands Click the source module’s category type icon to open its preset menu, then select Copy Settings. Click the target module’s category type icon to open its preset menu, then select Paste Settings. Append per-output Instrument tracks When you insert a multi-timbral soft synth, you can specify how many Instrument output tracks to create, up to the maximum supported by the synth. If you do not initially create the maximum number of available output tracks, you can later add additional tracks on demand from the Synth Rack view. To do so, do one of the following: Right-click the instrument in the Synth Rack (Views > Synth Rack View) and select Append Instrument Track. Right-click the instrument track strip in the Track view and select Append Instrument Track. Note: If you originally created used per-output Instrument tracks for that synth, then Cakewalk will create another per-output instrument track. If originally created split instrument tracks, then Cakewalk will create another split instrument track. Misc. enhancements App has been updated for all languages. The Display Clip Fade Attenuation option in Edit > Preferences > Customization - Display is now available as a key binding. Audio Driver Mode in Preferences now changes immediately without needing to click the Apply button. Updated to latest VST3 SDK, which includes VST bug fixes.

    Hi Well, with the hard lockdown we are enduring here in South Africa, as we didn’t have much to do, we thought we would do some videos for the album we released in 2017, On Top of the World – the first one , Make me Smile, went live today. Hope you enjoy – oh and turn up the volume!!!! Nigel

    FREE Hammond B3 - HaNon B70 "HaNon B70 is an emulator of the B3 Hammond equipped with a leslie 122. It is based on the emulation of the 91 toneWheels, which rotate permanently at low cost CPU, which allows to have natural keyClicks and a relatively simple synthesis. The leslie is composed of its tube preamp, its tube power amp and the emulation of the 2 rotors as well that first reflections on the body" https://www.lostin70s.com/#/plugins/HaNon B70 download here >>> https://www.lostin70s.com/#/download --- It's quite simple. The only thing I found really bad was the Vibrato simulation that cancels part of the volume and that's why I leave it off.

    Sound Aesthetics Sampling (makers of Mountains, Resona, Talua, Autumn Choirs, etc) is releasing a new synth for full Kontakt, FRAGMENTS. It's up on their SITE now. From their copy: Fragments is a free virtual instrument for Kontakt with various Organic Synth sounds, that have been created using various Synthesizers. Most of the sounds have movement within themselves so most of the time tune/pan/volume drift to achieve that fragile tone we're looking for. Also they are all multisampled (except the bonus sounds), which gives you even more variation. In addition to that the engine carries a round robin/variation system to get very organic results. Last but not least does it of course include some cool shaping tools like some deep effects, movement and gate and of course drift for that extra fragileness The product will be listed with a price of $15 in the shop but you can enter three different Coupon codes (FRAGMENTS_FREE, FRAGMENTS_5, FRAGMENTS_10) to get it for free/$5/$10 depending on what you want to give and just to clarify. We won't track if you pay something or not, it's just because some people are willing to and this makes it a lot easier for us to work with. I hope this sounds fair to everyone While you're at it, they have a freebie called Consona and have introduced another new product, Paradise Lost Redux, which is only $9.99 until 5/23. I have the four instruments listed above and they are all beautiful. I had no idea they have been adding so many more. I'll be paying attention the next time there is a sale. They often offer amazing deals and when I hear about the next one, I'll post it here, if Larry doesn't get to it before me. 😄

    We created this for ourselves so we could reopen and make sure we were following the requirements of distancing. We are the main use case for it and knew that it would be useful for other companies (definitely many - probably most - outside of the music industry). The price may seem steep if you are thinking it is made for home use but one look at https://www.safespacer.net and you can see for whom this is for.

    If I go for it, this will be my 5th major upgrade since starting with Melodyne at version 1. Each time, I told myself no, the old version already does everything I need and the new features don't justify the upgrade price. And each time, Celemony eventually came around with an offer I couldn't refuse. But that usually happened a year after the release. Not saying that'll happen again, but they've been consistent in the past. It's a sensible strategy: snag all the instant-upgraders in the first round, then come back later to scoop up the stragglers. I'll be one of those. I've done the same with Kontakt and Ozone, both of which have consistently seduced me into belated upgrades with an "ok, what about this price?" email.

    "So whilst all of us have to stay in-doors we thought it would be good to give you something new to play with. So to that end we will be giving away kontakt instruments from our back catalogue, as well as the single voice version of our VST/AU shaping synth S-One. We plan on releasing one at a time – so make sure you call back every few days to see what else is free."

    I was working with the Drum and Keyboard tab last night. In combination with the Audio Tracker and the Grooves that come with EZB, I am starting to piece together some really good sounding bass lines with lots of variety and flash!! I have found with the keyboard midi dragged into EZB you can use the left hand or right hand. Each one gives different results. Now also add the midi drum to EZB and you have three choices that can cover almost the whole song. Now look for grooves based on those generated clips and you can slice and place little fills all over the place. Yep, they hit this out the park!!

    Sad part of all this to me is the people refusing to wear a mask. If both parties where a mask and one has the virus, the chance of giving it to others is under 2%. What is so hard about doing your part to help health-care workers cope with this outbreak and protect people around you! We personally know 4 people who have got it. 2 survived and 2 didn't. The 2 that survived had it pretty bad but they didn't need to me ventilated. The other two that need to be didn't make it. I think one will have long-term health issues. Might only be a few percentage that get it bad but how would like to be the one that brings it home to your family. You only have mild case but by time you know you passed it along to your spouse and kids or parents. A little precaution for the loved ones around you. Sorry about my Soap-box here. My wife is a Nurse and has seen first hand what this virus can do . Sad to both of us is the leadership in this country. I'm talking all of them that they can't stop the bickering and actually do the job they were voted in office to do.

    Maybe we could start out with a more moderate stance and work our way up if necessary.

    Completely disagree with the OP In 20+ yrs of using Cakewalk in one form or another I think the ONLY bundled VST / VSTi plugin(s) that was worth my while was Z3TA+ and the 2nd version ....the rest was just bloatware to me. Tried briefly and then discarded. Personally when I want to find the best free plugins ( or paid ) for a particular task, l just Google it and see what options there are. I can't say I've ever used anything on your list because they don't really suit the way I work. Or I already have something similar that works for me. Whilst I've a ton of paid for stuff I've acquired over the years I'm not knocking the free stuff as some of it is great. I love OTT and ADSR Sample Manager and Zebralette But I don't particularly want or need anything off your list. Because it's your list. And I'm not you . And how I make music is not the same as how you make music. And why I write music and where it ends may be completely different to what you do with yours. I say let the Devs concentrate on the DAW. Keep in the installer lean and mean. And let the users find their own free or paid for stuff that fits the the music they make and how they work. It's a big world out there.

    At GearFest a couple years back, I got to meet Roger Linn... and he personally demonstrated the LinnStrument. Out of all the gear, (IMO) it was one of the coolest things we saw. Meeting Roger Linn... and getting to thank him for all his contributions to music/technology was also a highlight.
