    IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ An Early Access build of Cakewalk by BandLab is now available, and we'd love for you to try it out! As an Early Access build, this is not an official Cakewalk release. If you have not already done so, please be sure to read about the Early Access Program before participating. Download the Cakewalk 2019.07 Early Access installer Please note that an official release will be announced once the Early Access period has ended. Thanks in advance for your participation! The Bakers 2019.07 brings major usability enhancements, including Comping and Take lane enhancements, Smart Tool customization, Control Bar module alignment and over 100 bug fixes. Highlights Smart Tool customization The Smart Tool can be customized in order to disable specific functions and simplify the Smart Tool behavior. The Smart Tool is powerful, but may produce unintended results in certain situations, such as inadvertently isolating clips in Take lanes when clicking the bottom half of clips. If you are not strictly using Take lanes for comping, you may want to disable the comping behavior. Center Control Bar modules Control Bar modules can be left-aligned, justified, or centered. Comping and Take lane enhancements Comping and take management has undergone a massive overhaul for this release with many workflow improvements, optimizations and bug fixes. A few highlights: Freely assemble clips in track lanes either by recording or dragging and dropping from different sources Configure the Smart Tool to optionally turn off comping features while editing audio on lanes and re-enable it when you are ready to start building a comp track Copy/paste and drag drop enhancements There have been numerous improvements and bug fixes with selection and copy paste: Inter project drag and drop and copy paste support for take lanes and automation lanes Improved drag drop preview to visually represent the final data Full support for drag and drop of take lanes between tracks. New lanes are auto appended to tracks when dropping / pasting clips from multiple lanes Lane order is retained when dropping / pasting clips from multiple lanes Improved support for pasting track and clip envelopes in lanes Help Module content for clips The Help module is a window that dynamically shows contextual help for various UI elements in Cakewalk. Simply point to a UI element for a brief moment, and the Help module displays a short description of the UI element. In addition to a brief description of the clip type, the Help Module also lists common Smart Tool gestures that are supported by each unique clip type. Selection markers in time ruler The time ruler now shows draggable markers at either end of the time selection range. You can modify the start or end of the selection by dragging these markers or move the entire time selection by dragging the selection range bar. Loop and Punch marker enhancements The time ruler now uses more intuitive mouse cursors for selection, loop, punch and marker drag bars and handles. The mouse cursor shows a letter to indicate which marker will be modified before you actually click the marker: S (Selection), L (Loop), P (Punch), and M (Marker). Fixes & Enhancements Stability Crash when pasting automation Crash on opening project after closing another Improved notification handling Crash copying and pasting bus automation Projects using elastique audio crash when playing if audio is missing Optimizations Screensets in projects with high track counts load faster Multi threaded UI updates for notifications Undo redo of take Lanes is faster UI Bounced Track fails to appear with user created Lens Changing Lens and reopening CbB changes "None" unexpectedly Full Screen Mode only expands across multiple monitors Changing screensets slow with large number of tracks Selection/Tools CTRL Selecting clip doesn't work if the clip is partially selected as a result of a time selection CTRL clicking a clip during playback creates a clip envelope instead of selecting the clip Select Tool cannot select Comp Clip Control Bar Ability to center Control Bar modules Control Bar Export Module can lose gripper Export CB module is cropped when CB is locked and justified Resetting the Control Bar doesn't unlock module order Draw issue with Control Bar when floating after justify Take Lanes/Comping Copy paste in take lanes can delete source data Editing clips in lanes can lead to un-editable clip envelopes Copying and pasting clips from multiple take lanes is not possible Loop recording in Comp mode with lanes closed causes unexpected cropping of clips Some projects could prevent clip envelopes from being edited Now Time jumps in playback when isolating clips in Take lanes during playback Copy/Paste does not work as expected in Take Lanes CTRL Selecting neighboring clip does no't work immediately after isolating a clip region in a take lane Copying data from non-adjacent lanes pastes to adjacent lanes Dragging MIDI clips from Browser goes to lane 1 Pasting multiple clips in lanes to a track with single lane does not refresh UI Drag drop of multiple audio files from browser to take lanes not supported Pasting Multiple clips in lanes to bottom lanes cause clips to collapse to single lane Double clicking take lane in clips view does not select lane Clips in lanes cannot drag from one track to different lanes in another track Dragging takes to a new track skips over populated lanes Drag drop between lanes doesn't work properly when hidden tracks present Clips can be moved from their original take lane on CTRL drag and drop Copying clips in Lanes with envelopes gives unexpected results. Clip can no longer be selected after undo of drag Pasting clips in lanes to new project does not refresh UI correctly. Undo of paste of multiple lanes in new project does not behave as expected Comp Clip Draws unexpectedly after crop Dragging clips on MIDI take lanes to create overlaps does not crop data Dragging group of clips to new track deletes existing clip on destination track Pasting multiple layers to last lane in a track creates extra lanes Comp clip remains visible after dragging outside of the Clips View "Delete Muted Takes" renamed "Delete Muted Clips" Lane order changes pasting to new project Lanes order of order when dragging to create a new track When creating clip/automation lanes, Take lane initially appears grayed out Shift click does not work on comp clip when take lanes open Bouncing to clip causes clip to change lanes unexpectedly Duplicated tracks with lanes inverts order Redoing a loop recording in comp record mode fails to restore recorded clips state Automation Clip envelope in lanes cannot be edited after save/reopen of project Reassigning Automation Envelopes closes lanes unexpectedly Automation from multiple lanes pastes to a single lane Pasting Multiple Automation envelopes to track with fewer lanes has unexpected result Dragging clips from Browser to Lanes removes automation data Drag Copy to new project does not copy automation Automation lanes not created after recording track automation Automation lanes are copied out of order, and not all copied if automation lanes are expanded in destination project Some projects are saved with clip envelopes assigned to incorrect lanes Setting Edit filter to clip automation on a lane doesn't work properly when multiple clips present Clip envelopes on lanes don't respect edit filter state when loading projects Clip envelopes lose visibility on take lanes when toggling show take lanes Duplicate Track does not persist Automation lane state When pasting automation then showing lanes, Edit Filter is not set correctly with FX automation Redo not populating automation lanes correctly. Edit Filter in automation lanes not behaving as expected after paste Edit Filter not behaving as expected with auto track zoom Pasting take and automation lanes simultaneously has unexpected results. Track View Clips now have details in Help Module Aim Assist remains visible after dragging outside of Clips View Show Snap Assist when dragging clips to a different project Clip name moves up a pixel when right-edge crop reaches it Muted clips cause crossfades when overlapping non-muted clips Dragging Punch range in time ruler before measure 1 shrinks range unexpectedly Staff View Mouse cursor jumps to different monitor when clicking in Staff View time ruler Notes may not appear in Staff View in some projects General fixes V-Vocal Clips do not drag copy as expected Missing Help Module text for several views/contexts Help Module Support for ProChannel EQ Fly Out Notifications only appear on primary monitor Several "importing" messages displayed when closing project after previewing MP3 files in browser Some projects can fail to cut/copy on track Delete Track can delete unintended tracks Browser drag preview image now aligned to bottom right of cursor Track View key bindings are not listed in Preferences dialog when using Basic lens Dragging clips between projects can fail to create a new track in destination project Keyboard shortcut for Show/Hide Clip Properties does not hide Mouse cursor flickers between arrow and ibeam when moving mouse over automation lanes External Insert can be dragged from Browser to clip Dragging Punch range in time ruler doesn't update time rulers in other views Note about localization Please be aware that any new strings introduced in this build have not yet been localized.

    My general advise for reverb is KISS. Unless you have a specific use case to ride the reverb effect hard and/or use side-chain compression, just slap it as an effect at the end of the chain, and keep it at around -6dB or less. And if a synth has a wet sound, don't even bother, you can easily oversoak the sound that way.

    The last few days I have been working on one of Grems original songs as I was invited too collaborate on this amazing song. In all honestly it is one of the most beautiful I have heard in a long time and was honoured. Im sure Grem will chime in on the back story of the song - terminal illness 😞 This is a mix down and I would value your opinions on the vocal and mix and is a work in progress and asked Grem if if I could ask you all for opinions. Thanks In advance as always.

    Hi, I had an old computer and I installed Cakewalk. I liked it very much, and when I bought the new one that was more powerful (Asus Rog Strix Scar II), I decided to install it as well. But it goes a lot slower than the old one. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

    This issue must be something that is occurring when the Channel Emulator is used in a certain way. If it weren't, the forum would be full of complaints and the development team and beta testers would have noticed it a long time ago. The Console Emulation is a commonly used module. There must be a plug-in, module, way of routing, something that is happening on your system. If it's a bug, it's one that's exposed in combination with these other factors, so please post more about what other plug-ins and ProChannel modules you are using, where the track is routed, etc. The Console Emulator adds a bit of gain, so it may even be that the gain inherent to the module is causing something to go into oscillation. It also has its own resonant peak.

    This sounds a strange one. I'm definitely not seeing it - I use the console emulator on the ProChannel on most tracks, and in some cases I have more than one console emulator on the same track. Do you get this on every project?

    Thanks for all the comments! Even if I don't think that these bugs have to do with the system itself (the 2nd bug certainly not!), here are the system specifications: i5-8600K (3.6GHz, 6 cores, Coffee Lake), MSI Z370-A Pro, 16 GB memory, 512 GB SSD Focusrite Scarlett Solo 2nd Gen (I tried with the previous and very actual driver) I didn't have the time yet, but I will try to find out if the Focusrite driver has something to do with it (unstoppable playing), i.e. I will test with my 2nd USB audio interface (Behringer UMC404HD). But even if the Focusrite driver is involved, CbB should have control over its audio thread, so that you can close it! Also I have to mention that this happens even in very tiny projects, i.e. there is only one simple instrument track (AAS Strum GS-2) and a second audio track with some loop recorded takes (44.1kHz, 24-bit). I did not use any more plugins (Not that the ones jump in that always insist it maybe a plugin problem)! Most of the time the instrument track is muted, because I have soloed the track with the takes! And maybe 2 very important details: I had always enabled a small loop range but I stopped (tried to stop) the audio transport before repetition by hand (with the spacebar or the stop button). The metronome is always enabled (play) In addition to the test with another audio interface I will also check if it makes a difference if I replace the instrument track by an audio track, as this would remove the only plugin used. The second bug (clip start position) may also have a relation to loop recorded takes only. In any case I have had this problem always with such clips.

    Well, although I am a native Californian, I don't care for such sentiments. The belief/attitude that people who colonized or inhabited a place first have greater claim to it than those who arrived later or whose ancestors arrived later than other people's ancestors has done so much horrible damage to humanity in the past that I recoil from it. I think it's poison, and that bumper sticker is rude and unfriendly. Notice I "reveal" the actual numbers behind the "secret" when I make that joke. This is so that our beloved state can continue to attract people who are good at math, probability, and statistics. Anyone who is smart enough to realize that it's highly unlikely that they will be harmed by an earthquake will be welcomed by me. So will anyone else for that matter. Once they "survive" a couple of quakes and notice that nobody else is freaking out they will calm down like the rest of their fellow Californians. 😊 The first state that I noticed making a big deal about the "native" thing was Colorado, during the '80's (surprise). My mom moved there around '81 or so and I noticed all these bumper stickers that had the green and white motif and mountain outline of the Colorado license plate, and read "NATIVE." Then I started to see other ones in the same style. The first one was "ALIEN," which I thought was a good start, then there were a variety of obligatory geek ones like "HOBBIT," "JEDI," and "VULCAN," and then "WHO CARES?" which became my favorite. Then. Finally. I saw the winning entry, the one I had been thinking of myself, the one I would actually put on my own bumper, which was "NAIVE."

    I've been using Cakewalk for about two months now. I've got a Focusrite 6i6 interface and my computer has an i7 with 24G of RAM with a solid state hard drive. Things were going ok (I mean, I was having a fair amount of crashes, but for a free DAW; it made me diligent about saving) until today. I was recording a guitar part, stepped away, and when I came back everything was SLOW. This is NOT a latency issue. For stability reasons I have my buffer set to 512 and just monitor directly through the interface. No, now what happens is when I hit the space bar to stop play, for example, it takes a full 4 or 5 seconds for the cursor to reset to the start spot. During this time the DAW is frozen. Then is goes back to playing like usual. The whole program just seems to have gone into slow motion. I tried reinstalling, to no avail. I am at the verge of tears. If anyone has any suggestions I am all ears. Also, if I didn't provide enough details, please ask. I'm so frustrated right now I'm probably not being very eloquent. thanks, Ryan

    On Wed, Jan 16, 2019, the legacy forums became read-only, meaning members can no long post there. However, they remain in place as a vital information resource, having proved valuable to the community over the years.
