    Congratulations (To Noel & team) on another great release. More than that though; I’m blown away by the extent of involvement by the devs especially post release and the speed with which they respond to questions and problem solving. Anybody would think Cakewalk is a fully paid for commercial product with a large development budget. This level of support far exceeds the efforts visible to users in the pre-Bandlab days. I know the team has always been fairly active on the forum but certainly not at today’s levels. I genuinely wonder what the change has been from then (Gibson days eg) to bring about this open dialog. It’s very refreshing.

    Mogwai Multi Gate is FREE at the moment - normally $9.99. No idea how long for - lots of other stuff on sale. I know nothing about their plugins. But free is one of my favourite four letter words beginning with F. I like the word fume as well. https://mogwaiaudiotools.com.au/product/mgate-multi/

    I think the response would have been different if you’d actually asked for help trying to solve your specific problems. This is actually a very helpful forum with many knowledgeable people. Even the developers stop by almost daily. Having said that, this is a forum for the Windows application Cakewalk by BandLab (formally SONAR), and not the web based BandLab DAW. It’s sad that you didn’t stay for a bit longer as I’m sure your problems would eventually have been solved. Still, if you would change your mind I'm sure that a lot of people here would help you out.

    WowZER, just one week into it and I’m actually blown away by the added features & workflow enhancements in this 2021.04 update. After getting over the very unexpected shock and awe of launching CbB up for the 1st time into the new 4K UHD GUI (at first I thought I was hallucinating from a reaction from getting my 2nd COVID vaccination Jab) as everything seemed to almost appear in 3D and so unusually crisp, clear and vivid. I kinda skipped over the section of 4K resolution enhancements in the release notes, but my Radeon Pro graphics drivers picked up on them instantly upon launch. It didn’t take me very long to realize that the new 4K res. in CbB isn’t just bling and a simple pretty face lift, but a MAJOR editing workflow enhancements for automating envelopes, plugins, and piano roll MIDI editing, and REALLY brings out in ultra fine visual details what’s going on with both my Behringer X Touch & Novation Impulse 61 MIDI DAW controllers. My 2 main weapons of choice for breathing the feel human life with all the knobs, faders, & buttons into otherwise static and sterile digital & MIDI recording & sequencing. Which brings me to what I consider the other “Cup of Drool” MAJOR workflow enhancement I’ve dived into this past week. The depth & power of 2021.04’s “Tempo Track” which so far seems to be able to perform & give ACID Pro’s tempo editing a run for it’s money and NO other DAW’s I’ve EVER tried have ever come this close to doing THAT. For those of us traditionally trained musician/composers having the ability to easily change tempo and keeping a nice flow in a musical composition has always been a challenge to translate a hand written "emotional" musical score into a humanly impossible PERFECT MIDI tempo sequence and be able to maintain a human feel. And while I'm ADIMENT about practicing and starting the first few tracks of recording sessions with a metronome, us mortal humans are NOT perfect and incapable of keeping perfect time. It's unnatural, and as our emotions and spirits flow and drift off a bit for effect, so must our MIDI comps. If we want to keep a natural human feel to our performances. And now thanks to this new and improved automatable Tempo Track in 2021.04 update, what could take me hours or even days to get right now only takes me minutes of EASY PEEZY. 😆 And even little things like having the all FX plugins listed in one window as opposed to scrolling down to find the right one is a HUGE workflow enhancement! 😂 Well that’s all the great new news I’ve got so far, but it’s only been a week, and a great & FUN week of digg’in into CbB. THANK YOU CAKEWALK BAKERS! YOU GUYS ROCK!🙏🏼

    I personally don't see what the problem is - according to the article, the telemetry is optional. Furthermore, it remains open source - anyone with relevant programming experience (including the original owners/maintainers of Audacity) can fork the latest release and disable the telemetry if they felt that strongly about it.

    Definitely agree that Pianoteq sounds better - if £58.56 is half price for TruePianos, I'd definitely recommend at least looking at Pianoteq Stage

    Epic Piano looks like something I could very well use often...for under $20 seems like a no-brainer. Anyone have any experience with the any other plug ins here? The price is right, but not sure anything else I actually "need." hahaha. Since when does that come into play?

    Currently obsolete. Tabs are leftovers from when the synth rack was part of the Browser. A while back they separated it from the Browser even tho it's still tied to it. Confusing for sure when collapsed. I would have preferred they left it as-was and made each tab draggable out to it's own floating window instead of just the synth rack.

    When I seen this, I thought to myself Fleer is going to be all over this like a fat kid on a cup cake. I remember back on the old forums when Adaptiverb was released, all your oohing and aaring and rapturous enthusiasm for the plugin. I managed to resist for a while, but your love and enthusiastic commentary never waned, so I gave in and purchased it. Wrong move, I tinkered with it for a time, but being a simple guitarist, it was just a little to funky for me. It sat there in my plugin folder for a few years, , only having a tinker every now and then, but that's all. Then one day I saw a post on KVR's Buy and Sell, someone looking for it, contacted them, done deal, lesson learned. I'm just a simple man With simple needs and following Fleer Will ensure it bleeds

    Different opinion here. It’s one of a very small group of modeled pianos with Pianoteq and Arturia’s V Piano, both being infinitely better as TruePianos are not being updated. But for a modeled piano it still deserves respect in my book.

    Something completely different, but somehow irresistible (was pinged to check this out, had my cursor on close tab for the entire video, and then had to dig deeper...)

    The difference is mainly tube (pentode/triode) vs transistor(fet/zener). The HG-2MS seems comparable to the VSM-4 given the tube layout. As for sound, the VSM-3 might be "more different" from the HG-2MS than the VSM-4. I was trying to decide if it was worth the effort to demo. ... update... And then Larry posts this ^^^. I'm pretty happy with the HG-2MS on acoustic/organic tracks.

    Hi Everybody, This is a brand new track I just finished up for the album I'm currently working on called "The Westerly Sessions Vol. VII". As always, any comments or critiques are welcome, and thanks for listening😊 Here it is: https://www.soundclick.com/music/songInfo.cfm?songID=14239440

    I’ve asked this before and I’m surprised we don’t have this feature. I would like to be able to repeat my last function. If I’m working on a midi track and change any note’s length, velocity or pitch, it would be great to highlight another note and hit the repeat button to change the next note’s value. If I nudge a take lane, sometimes it takes a bit of trial and error to get the clip where it needs to be. Once I figure that out I can hit the repeat button and move other take lanes to that position. That would save a good deal of time. There is an endless list of procedures a repeat function can perform. Thanks, ‘Michael

    I have to admit, when I first read the title I thought maybe you had lost your senses, and this might be one of those IBTL threads, or maybe even a "banned for life," threads, because maybe you are still in mourning, and folks can do some crazy things when the shroud has been wrapped. Thankfully though not that. that is one nice live rig bass rack you have there. I have a request, how about you post a bass solo and walk us all through the sonic capabilities of this rig. That would be very cool, and archival, because you just never know.

    For the record I didn't know what TL;DR meant either - not everyone understands these abbreviations - LOL is about as far as I go! It does seem to me that slagging off a piece of software without understanding the differences between different products provided by a company is, to say the least, a little unfair. If I had a problem with Word I wouldn't moan about Excel! If the OP stays around he will find lots of really helpful people who will try to point him in the right direction and do their utmost to resolve his problem - I don't see any antagonism in the responses even though he appeared to criticise a piece of software that hundreds of us are using to create music projects with only occasional problems - to which the development team and forum members respond quickly and, within reason, effectively.

    I believe you are referring to BandLab's WEB Based music editor, not Cakewalk. Cakewalk is not a "WEB" application. You have to install Cakewalk into your computer. Syphus

    An American tourist is in Germany and goes into a bar. He asks, "Do you have any American beer?" The bartender says "Nein". The American says, "Well give me the closest thing you have." The bartender hands him a glass of tap water. Caveat: That joke is dated. Some microbreweries are producing really good stuff (at least in my area).

    Another one with Singer’s syndrome (great term!) is Celemony. They have forgotten about Studio version customers who’ve spent more on their products than anyone else. Actually, they’ve not forgotten, they treat us as suckers who they take for granted.

    Me too - as far as saturation plugins (...and other types of plugins now that I think about it), I think I'm covered, or at least until my next bout of GAS 😜 I was wondering because my impression of Zo's Black Box review was that it was one of best sounding plugins at the time.

    It's not time-consuming once you know what you are doing but there is a learning curve. For your specific issue, have you tried changing the option under the Track View menu: View > Display > [X] Display Track Separators I usually run with that option un-checked, as this specific UI element - Track Separator - is not affected by Theme customization, there just isn't an option for it. Also, color customization is complicated by an older feature in Cakewalk that interacts/overlays the Theme options. Basically you can load a custom theme, but then any changes from "Normal" under Preferences > Customization > Colors that you've made will overlay or over-ride the Theme elements. And there are some options under this Customization > Colors area that don't have a matching element in a Theme - the Track View Vertical Beat and Vertical Measure line colors for example. Regarding the clip colors, this is another case where the Theme sets the default but the Colors preferences can override. And of course, in any project you can then customize the colors on a per-Track and per-Clip basis, which take precedence over any Theme or Color Pref option. I get what you're saying about preferring pastel shades but you also have to be aware of how Cakewalk will tint, fade, or change these colors based on things that are happening in your project. I recommend reviewing this section of my guide: Clip Colors

    Hi folks! If you want a simple trick to have latency free recording, with FX, but no special hardware - check out my video. I show you how to do it in Cakewalk by Bandlab, but this could be applied to other DAWs WATCH HERE: https://youtu.be/-huBF5lrqRM
