    FWIW, I've noticed that Cubase 11's ultra-low latency performance is a significant improvement vs. version 10. ie: With version 11, I can run Helix Native at 96k using a 32-sample ASIO buffer size (1ms total round-trip latency)... with zero glitches. Version 10 was more prone to ASIO buffer peak overloads (glitches).

    Hi, I'm reading this with interest ... I'm using SSL hardware with RME cards which give me (max.) 192 channels. I have not yet updated to this latest version, but will make sure to take screen shots of before and after. I spent quite a bit of time making "friendly names" easy to read in the dropdowns, so I'm interested to see if this new "feature" will be just as easy to understand after the update. I'll comment more later.

    It can never really be precisely defined for this kind of thing, I think. I mean, I think Reaper is really impressive, but I rarely use it unless forced to by work requirements. And that's exactly because every long menu and huge, 20-button pop up box in Reaper makes my eyes glaze over. At the same time, I know there are people who love that degree of reconfigurability. So there's the question-of-taste aspect. On top of that, there's the more objective fact that it is easier to find your feet in an application that demands you make technical decisions you might not have a view on less often, or perhaps never. Garage Band is at the far extreme of this, happily sacrificing flexibility in favour of ease of use. For what it's worth, I think Cakewalk is more and more successful all the time at presenting a friendly default top layer, but having lots of underlying flexibility for advanced users. So I think "staying away from excessive options" is a good aspiration, and one that's been yielding good results. I don't think it should be a dogma, though. But I think they get the balance right most of the time.

    Orange Tree Samples' guitars are fantastic, but I knew you would totally fall in love with The Famous E electric piano. I wish I could play it like you! Hearing it totally brings back memories of so many great songs and in your hands, I don't want you to stop playing! There are a ton of electric piano sample libraries on the market, but this one is so very special. It's amazing what Orange Tree Samples captured with that library. Greg Schlaepfer is truly a sampling genius. I did find it amusing that you went from George Michael to The Wizard of Oz, I expected Stevie (I share your love of his music). I can honestly say that I didn't see the George Michael coming!

    [UPDATE 6-Aug-2021: Cakewalk 2021.06 Update 3 (build 27.06.0.058) is now available] Introduction The 2021.06 release introduces improved input/output port naming, improved dropout management, several Arranger enhancements, Tempo track grid lines, shape smoothing options when using the Freehand tool on envelope shapes, improved VST3 support, lots of other enhancements and optimizations, and over 25 bug fixe, all in keeping with our goal of making Cakewalk as reliable and enjoyable as possible. Please note that in order to automatically keep your activation status up to date, Cakewalk will renew your activation status whenever a new version of the application is installed and run for the first time, and when you sign in to BandLab from within Cakewalk. If you have never signed in to BandLab from within Cakewalk, you will be prompted once to sign in. The following highlights are intended to provide an overview of the more significant changes. Please also refer to the new features section of our documentation for more detailed information on the features. Please give us feedback on this release. We hope you like it! Update August 6 2021: 2021.06 Update 3 (build 27.06.0.058) Bug fixes In-app Google authentication not working Projects with tracks containing embedded synths in the FX rack can hang on load if aux tracks are also present Pressing spacebar/play fails to start project in Play List Update July 29 2021: 2021.06 Update 2 (build 27.06.0.057) "Modern Standby" support and improved Power Management Added support for "Modern Standby" a new power management feature introduced in Windows 10 build 2004. Modern Standby mode is supported by some PC's (typically modern laptops). Modern standby is different from the traditional sleep modes and has to be specially handled by the application in order to suspend and resume hardware properly. Improved handling for resuming from a sleep state in Windows. Cakewalk will additionally reload the driver if necessary, if the driver requests a restart or it stops responding. Suspend and resume are properly handled when a dialog box is open. Handle VST instruments that change output counts If a VST instrument changes its output count, ports in projects previously saved with the instrument could become offset by the change in outputs. This could cause projects to stop playing through other virtual instruments until their instrument track inputs were reassigned. Cakewalk will now detect change in outputs on opening a project and automatically reassign ports appropriately with no user intervention required. Bug fixes Fixed crash when exporting single track with "-" in track name and filename Intermittent crash when adding new articulation trigger event Wedge Force Matcha plug-in hangs on changing presets in 2021.06 release Projects saved with older version of Omnisphere open with input ports assigned to incorrect instruments SPACEBAR does not start playback when using Vienna Ensemble Pro in host mode SHIFT+right-click toggle for Inline Piano Roll causes unexpected lasso selection Regression: New projects from templates are flagged as dirty in version 2021.06 Extra Synth Instances inserted when adding all synth audio outputs for Split Instrument Track Alt+T shortcut in Track view View menu cut off slightly Arranger sections are not focused immediately after a drag/draw operation (F2 to rename fails) Nudging a fully selected MIDI clip nudges notes, not the whole clip Update July 13 2021: 2021.06 Update 1 (build 27.06.0.053) Enhancements for input and output port names When using Friendly Names for audio devices (Edit > Preferences > Audio - Devices) , use the vertical bar character (|) to separate left/right/stereo channel names. When using Friendly Names, menus only show L/R/S descriptors and not channel numbers. (Channels can be named using the vertical bar character in the friendly name). Channel numbers are only shown in the port menu and not in the actual port name field to make the readout more compact. The full name is always shown in the tooltip. Channel numbers in menus are separated from the port name, using a columnar layout. You can choose to display the port channel information as a prefix or suffix to the port names shown in the menu. Set this via the Display Channels as Prefix in Port Menus option in Edit > Preferences > Customization - Display. Port names and tooltips for sends and aux tracks have been improved. Finer choices for tempo decimation The TempoImportDecimationResolution Cakewalk.ini variable affects how tempo envelope shapes are preserved when opening Cakewalk 2021.04 (and later) projects in earlier versions. The TempoMapDecimationResolution variable specifies the minimum time resolution for each tempo map entry when creating tempo envelope curves and lines. Both these variables can now be set to values smaller than 60 ticks. The values are as follows: 1 = 240 ticks (16th Note) 2 = 120 ticks (32nd Note) 3 = 60 ticks (64th Note) 4 = 30 ticks (128th Note) 5 = 15 ticks (256th Note) 6 = 12 ticks (320th Note) 7 = 6 ticks (640th Note) 8 = 3 ticks (1280th Note) Cakewalk responds to PC sleep / wakeup The audio engine stops if/when Windows tells Cakewalk it is about to suspend/hibernate. If Cakewalk receives a Wakeup notification (i.e. you've awakened from suspend or hibernate), it will restart the audio engine. Note: Some audio drivers may not respond properly to a wakeup notification, which will cause the audio engine to fail to restart. Bug fixes Not all horizontal grid lines showing on Tempo track when using Tempo Track Show/Hide Tempo Track Show/Hide shortcut (ALT+T) is not shown in Track view View menu Display All Times as SMPTE does not persist as expected Extra tempo node added at end when inserting tempo after last tempo node Synth port numbers appear unexpectedly after using Replace Synth Spacing in Input picker inconsistent for inputs above 9 In ASIO mode, the input port menu reported the number of stereo channels rather than the actual hardware channel count In-app Update fails to launch if user path has Unicode characters 2021.06 Highlights New features Improved input/output port naming for hardware and software ports In Cakewalk all ports are grouped into stereo pairs of channels. In order to make it easier to associate these pairs with the physical channels exposed by the hardware or virtual instrument, the port naming conventions have been improved. Audio and soft synth input and output ports now include a channel number prefix before the port name. Additionally, port names now always show the actual names of the referenced channels. (previously only the first channel name would be shown). Since many instruments have different names for channels or even dynamic names, the channel index can be used to identify a specific instrument output more easily. When using user defined device names (Use friendly names to represent audio drivers) you can now specify both the left and right channels in the stereo pair by using the pipe symbol “|” to delimit the channel names. For example, entering a friendly name of “Guitar|Voice” may show 1: Guitar, 2: Voice, 1+2: Guitar + Voice in the menus. Input/output prefixes are not shown in port names when using friendly driver names. Port names have been shortened to skip the device vendor name for greater legibility in the Track view, Console view and Inspector. The tooltip for the name will show the full form of the name. Port names are no longer compacted. With the smarter port naming, in most cases there should be no need to use friendly names to shorten the strings, unless you wish to use instrument names for the ports. Edit Filter values and MIDI channels are no longer compacted, which makes it easier to read parameter names in most cases. In the Console view Hardware Outs section, hardware out names now show channel indexes as well as channel names in ASIO mode. Sends now show shortened port names and use port numbering when applicable. Improved dropout management In version 2019.09 we introduced Dropout Analytics to allow diagnosing and resolving common causes of audio dropouts. While dropout messages may be useful to diagnose the cause of problems, they can be intrusive to workflow when small audio interruptions are inconsequential, such as when editing projects, loading and saving sessions, playing back in a live scenario, etc. In this release we manage dropouts more intelligently throughout the application by masking certain categories of dropout notifications when they are less important. The following dropout codes are considered maskable since they are caused by CPU load issues, while other dropouts are caused by system events that cannot be resumed from easily: Dropout code 1: Audio processing took longer than the buffers allotted time slice. Dropout code 3: Driver did not request audio buffers for over DropoutMsec milliseconds. Possible driver overload. Dropouts are masked in the following scenarios The application is idling (transport is not running) Performing various editing operations Performing real time bounce/export/freeze (rendered data will be free of glitches even if the audio playback contains glitches, as long as you are not rendering external hardware inserts) Playing back via the Play List view Opening and closing views Opening and closing documents Operating screen sets Mix Recall Handling dropouts during playback and recording Under normal conditions, Cakewalk always stops playback or recording if too many late buffers are encountered while playing. However there may be circumstances where a dropout that stops playback is disruptive, such as when doing an unattended recording or playing back in a live scenario. To handle these cases, a new MaskDropoutDetection option in Edit > Preferences > Audio - Configuration File can be used to suppress the engine stopping due to dropouts. Setting MaskDropoutDetection to True will activate dropout masking during playback and recording. When activated, Cakewalk will continue playback and recording after it encounters a maskable dropout. This can prevent unwanted interruption of playback or a lost take while recording. Notes: If the dropouts are extreme, recorded audio may contain glitches. Please follow the normal dropout diagnosis procedure for minimizing dropouts. The Play List view will always ignore dropouts irrespective of this setting. Only CPU load related dropouts are masked. Other dropouts such as driver requested stops or disk underruns will still cause playback to stop. Create new arrangement based on existing arrangement You can now quickly create a new arrangement by selecting sections in an existing arrangement. To do so, select the desired sections in the Arranger Inspector’s Arrangements pane, then right-click in the Arrangements pane and select New Arrangement From Selection. Insert committed arrangement at the Now Time You can now insert a committed arrangement into the existing project at the Now Time. To do so, right-click the Commit Arrangement to Project button in the Arranger Inspector and select Insert Committed Arrangement. Sections for the inserted arrangement are added to new Arranger track. Any other existing Arranger tracks, sections and arrangements remain unaffected. Any existing events after the Now Time will be shifted over to make room for the inserted arrangement. As with the Commit Arrangement to Project command, holding down the SHIFT key while selecting the command will cause the events under the arrangement sections to be copied as linked clips. Optional grid lines in the Tempo track To show grid lines in the Tempo track, right-click in the Tempo track and select Show Grid Lines. Specify shape smoothing behavior when using the Freehand tool on automation envelopes You can specify how shape smoothing works when using the Freehand tool on envelope shapes. To do so, click the Track view Options menu, point to Freehand Smoothing, then select one of the following options: Smooth. Uses the existing fit-to-curve functionality. This is the default setting. As Drawn (Linear). Joins the nodes up with linear shapes. As Drawn (Jumps). Leaves the nodes as is, making them jump shapes. Replace synth on a single Instrument track When inserting a multi-output soft synth with the Instrument Track Per Output option enabled, Cakewalk creates multiple Instrument tracks that share a single instance of the soft synth. You can now replace the soft synth on an individual Instrument track without affecting other Instrument tracks that share the same soft synth instance. To do so, right-click the Instrument track strip and select Replace Synth for This Track Only. Replace Synth now handles output port mismatch When replacing a synth with a different synth that has fewer outputs, you can now replace with multiple instances of the new synth in order to account for the extra outputs. Note Names in the Piano Roll view persist per track When assigning a custom Note Names setting in the Piano Roll view (right-click the piano keyboard or note label pane), the setting now persists on a per track basis. Closing and re-opening the Piano Roll view remembers the last setting used for each track. The settings are with the project. Articulation Map Editor: optional time offset and duration override for ‘New Note’ transforms In the Articulation Map Editor, you can now offset the start time and override the duration of New Note output events in the Transform Existing MIDI Events section. Time Offset (T). A positive time delay in MBT that will be applied to the new note. Duration Override (D). A replacement duration for the new note. If left at 0:00:000, the new note will inherit the duration of the original note. Reorder multiple tracks simultaneously You can reorder multiple tracks simultaneously by dragging in the Track pane. To do so, select the tracks that you want to reorder, then drag any selected track. Restrictions: You can’t move the selection on or before tracks within the selection (i.e. trying to move it onto itself) You can’t move a selection containing track folders into a track folder (nested folders are currently not supported) If a track folder is selected (whether or not all the tracks within the folder are selected), the whole track folder is moved, unless you are moving selected tracks from within a single track folder out of the track folder. ‘Duplicate Selected Clip(s) as Linked Clips’ command To duplicate the selected clip(s) as linked clips, press CTRL+SHIFT+D. Improved VST3 support Support for VST3’s new MIDI CC learn functionality. This is used by any VST3 plug-ins that utilize MIDI learn via CCs. VST audio buses (inputs/outputs) are now disabled by default and enabled on demand based on which tracks utilize the buses. With instruments that have many outputs this can save memory and CPU. Added support for IPlugInterfaceSupport and IProcessContextRequirements and IComponentHandlerBusActivation Misc. enhancements ALT+mouse wheel now zooms in the Piano Roll view Drum Grid pane Improved font rendering in new menus Behavior changes Insert Tempo Change dialog defaults to ‘Change the Most Recent Tempo’ The Insert Tempo Change dialog box defaults to Change the Most Recent Tempo, unless clicking the Insert Tempo Change button in the Tempo Inspector, in which case it defaults to Insert a New Tempo. Optimizations Improved app startup time when using WASAPI driver mode With some multichannel audio devices, app startup could be very slow in earlier versions while Cakewalk tried to evaluate the number of output channels.

    It's been a bit of a dirty secret that some editing techniques that are standard practice with pop music are also used with "pure" genres such as classical, jazz and folk. Sure, engineers working in those genres will usually strive for transparency, but then pitch correction in pop music was once meant to be unnoticeable too. They got over that self-imposed restriction pretty fast. At present, classical music production sticks to a light touch and subtle digital manipulation, but they've only recently become comfortable with admitting they do it at all. It makes sense to apply some amount of dynamic range reduction, given that people are far more likely to listen in the car while sitting in traffic, or on ear buds on a plane or train. Noise reduction seems reasonable, too. But I have to wonder if there hasn't also been some discrete enhancements using EQ and reverb. This video mostly addresses editing, as opposed to processing (we can still draw a distinction between those things, for now). Mostly they talk about comping, but also mention the ability to do polyphonic pitch and timing corrections using Melodyne. There is a segment in the middle that CW users might find interesting, where the hosts attempt to discern between real instruments and virtual instruments. Spoiler: the drummer guessed wrong on the drums and the pianist guessed wrong on the piano.

    DOR indeed However keep in mind not all audio drivers are nice enough to have names that properly show their channels and this also varies drastically by driver mode. For example a device with a single stereo input may just call it "Input". Now if we didn't have the numbers in the menu you would get something like: Input Input Input Instead of what it shows now. 1: Input 2: Input 1+2: Input Just to illustrate that there are cases where numbering is not redundant... This stuff is a complete maze with the differences between devices, driver modes, and virtual instruments. I can barely get my head around all the permutations of things. Hence we decided to simplify and use a uniform numbering method. Anyway we'll collect more feedback and if there is a way to solve it without breaking some other case we'll improve it for next release. So far its looking like the safest approach is to disable it only for hardware ports when friendly names are used, since the user has control over the naming there. i.e even if it led to the bad case listed above you could go in and rename the ports to resolve it.

    $5k for a new computer is a small price to pay for a center-justified taskbar. Ever notice Microsoft's surprisingly consistent pattern of alternating good and bad versions? Windows 2 was useless, Windows 3 changed the world. Win 95 made half your applications stop working, Win 98 addressed those problems. Windows ME, 'nuff said. XP was great, Vista sucked. Win 7 was troublesome but ultimately recognized as forward progress, but Win 8 was widely ridiculed for trying to make desktop displays look and act like tablets. Then Win 10 redeemed the brand again. Let's hope Win 12 swoops in to save the day.

    Hello again, fellow KWalkers 😃. Quick question first. Does posting songs on Bandlab preserve their fidelity? I find that files lose quality in SoundCloud. It doesn't allow me to switch streaming from standard to high quality audio. Hoping to hear what your experience is with that. 🙏 So...about this song: This was the song I moved onto after I learned enough about programming guitars with MusicLab's RealGuitar and RealStrat on "For All We Know", as I mentioned in my last post, so all instruments here are also VST. The song is an original in Spanish that talks about missing someone and if Spanish is not one of your languages I would love it if you could show it to a friend. Yes, it's mine BTW and it's definitely not mastered either but I hope they get the idea. I didn't wanna bore you all with the translation here but I can add it later if anyone cares. 🤙 Meanwhile I hope you can listen to it and treat my voice in your minds just like another instrument. (I'd prefer to be a guitar in your minds if it's all the same to you LOL) At the time I wrote it I envisioned making it in the style of "Jesus To A Child" by George Michael, but that changed with the passage of time and under other influences. When I finally recorded the track as posted here, I had been listening a lot to John Mayer, so I ended up experimenting with some of his approaches to dynamics and arrangements. He doesn't have a powerful voice so they use a close mic-ing technique and they put kind of a flat EQ on his lead vocals (I hand held a Shure Beta 58 for this one) . They also put the lead vocals up front so the diction cuts through, and then they surround it with alternate vocal and instrumental melodies that become part of the chords in the arrangement. Maybe because of that they also don't mix the bass and drums as a typical rock mix. This is most often how they mix pop in other languages too, so to Spanish language listeners (me included) this approach feels natural. Though I can reach the higher notes in the backing vocals here, I used the available Melodyne and lowered the entire bounced track as needed to punch in some of the phrases and then moved those punches to the original song's key for mixing. The advantage I found to doing it this way is that the slight difference in texture (format) makes the harmonies more interesting. (Not feeling like the Castrati was another welcome benefit LOL) I hope you guys enjoy or at the very least can relate. Be well, KWalkers

    In the example you post, the numbers aren't confusing, but they are redundant and unnecessary. I appreciate that there may be cases where this isn't true, but in your posted example, they add nothing. The improvement comes from the ability to name the individual ports in a pair, not from the numbering. In my example, the numbers are counter-productive. Surely this is a case for a user-selectable option.
