    We're pleased to announce Early Access for 2021.04! This release integrates BandLab library access directly within Cakewalk, introduces a new Tempo track and Tempo Inspector, PC2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier ProChannel module, automation enhancements, Arranger enhancements, lots of other enhancements and optimizations, and over 60 bug fixes. We'd love for you to check it out before we drop the official public version. Please note that Early Access installers are update installers, which only update from a specific version. To install the 2021.04 Early Access build, you must be on the latest public release of 2021.01. Download Cakewalk 2021.04 EA installer Should you need to revert to the 2021.01 release, you can download the Cakewalk 2021.01 Rollback installer. If you haven't already done so, please read about the Early Access Program before participating. Please keep responses specific to problems or comments on this release. Unrelated bugs or feature requests should be posted in other threads or the feature request channel. Thanks again for your participation! The Bakers 2021.04 Highlights New features Note: Screenshots may not reflect actual UI in latest build. Integrated BandLab library access The 2021.04 release introduces a major update to BandLab integration, with support for downloads and uploads and tracking revision state directly from within Cakewalk. Subsequent uploads to BandLab of a modified project are automatically tracked as revisions to the parent project. There is also support for importing clips and MIDI tracks from BandLab projects. The brand new Library view (File > Browse BandLab Projects) now allows you to navigate your projects on BandLab and set revision and song properties directly from within Cakewalk . Here are some of the benefits of BandLab library integration in Cakewalk: Easily publish Cakewalk projects, stems and mixes to your BandLab library Quickly open BandLab projects in Cakewalk Collaborate easily by sharing audio tracks via the BandLab cloud Bring projects started on mobile into Cakewalk for VST effects and advanced editing Fly in vocals or other parts for a Cakewalk project from iOS and Android Curate your music as playlists that you can play anywhere from your mobile device To publish the current project to your BandLab library, select File > Publish to BandLab or choose Export | BandLab from the export module on the toolbar. When publishing to BandLab, a project may be uploaded as a new project, or as a revision to an existing BandLab project. BandLab projects always point to the latest revision. Use the Upload Settings to pick the combination of project assets you wish to upload to the BandLab project. Tracks and buses are mixed down prior to uploading to BandLab. To open a BandLab project, select File > Browse BandLab Projects. You may open as a new Cakewalk project or import into an existing project. Note that revisions are only tracked if you open as a new Cakewalk project. Use the Download Settings options to select the types of assets from the BandLab project you wish to download and open. Note: The Help button in the Browse BandLab Projects dialog box will not launch the correct help topic until Cakewalk 2021.04 has been officially released. IMPORTANT: Cakewalk is no longer compatible with projects downloaded via BandLab Assistant. As of version 2021.04, BandLab Assistant should no longer be used for project integration. If you have multiple BandLab user accounts and would like to sign in as a different user, select Help > Sign Out from BandLab, then select Help > Sign In to BandLab to sign in with a different account. Tempo track The new envelope based Tempo track replaces the Tempo view and provides an overview of the project tempo. In the Tempo track, tempo changes are represented by envelope shapes. You edit the project’s tempo map the same way you edit automation envelopes. If a project has a single fixed tempo, the Tempo track shows a straight horizontal line. You create tempo changes by adding envelope nodes and editing their values. You can expand the Tempo track to give yourself more room to work, and adjust the range of values for the Tempo track. To show the Tempo track, do one of the following: Click the Track view View menu and select Tempo Track Show/Hide Select Views > Tempo or press ALT+SHIFT+5 (this also opens the Tempo Inspector) The Tempo track automatically zooms vertically to fit the tempo range each time the tempo envelope is modified. To zoom vertically, drag up/down in the tempo scale with the left mouse button To scroll vertically, drag in the tempo scale with the right mouse button To auto-zoom to fit the envelope, double-click the tempo scale The new Project > Offset Tempo Map command lets you speed up or slow down the entire tempo map. For additional options, right-click the Tempo track. Tip: There is a new workspace named Tempo that has a layout suitable for tempo editing. Tempo Inspector The Tempo Inspector shows a list of all tempo changes defined in the project’s tempo map, and allows you to edit each tempo change BPM, time position, and curve type. To show/hide the Tempo Inspector, click the Show/Hide Tempo Inspector button at the top of the Inspector pane. To show both the Tempo Inspector and Tempo track, select Views > Tempo or press ALT+SHIFT+5. PC2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier ProChannel module PC2A T-Type Leveling Amplifier is meticulously modeled after a legendary vintage electro-optical tube compressor. This compressor, known for its automatic gain control characteristics, delivers vintage sound with incredibly warm and rich compression. It is revered by audio engineers worldwide for its trademark sound, and has been used on countless hit records since the late 1960s. It is one of the true classics in the audio recording industry. Enhancements Loop current arrangement You can now loop the current arrangement indefinitely by enabling the Loop Enable/Disable button in the Arranger Inspector. Plug-in menu improvements Plug-in menus show color coded plug-in types Large plug-in menus can now show over 1,000 plug-ins Multiple columns appear when applicable Supports mouse wheel scrolling and keyboard support Improved automation envelope UI Automation envelopes are slightly thinner and the nodes are smaller and no longer show a gradient Ghosted envelopes no longer show nodes Show values on automation envelopes You can now optionally show values on envelopes. To show/hide values on automation envelopes, click the Track view View menu and select Display > Show Values on Envelopes. Track Manager preset support The Track Manager dialog box now has support for per-project presets. This is useful if you have a large project and you want to hide all other tracks apart from a certain group of tracks. For example, on a rock project you could have a "Drums only" or "Guitars" preset; on an orchestral project, you may wish to have a "Strings Section" preset that hides all tracks apart from your strings tracks. Note: Tracks within the Tracks Manager presets are "opted-out" - i.e. it remembers which tracks you want to hide, rather than which tracks you want to show (to avoid not being able to see newly created tracks). To open the Track Manager, click the Track view Tracks menu and select Track Manager or press the H key. Convert MIDI continuous controller (CC) events to/from automation envelopes You can convert back and forth between MIDI continuous controller (CC) events and automation envelopes. The existing Track view Clips > Convert MIDI Controllers To Envelopes command lets you convert all CC events on all selected tracks to automation envelopes. You now also have finer control with the ability to convert an individual CC type on a Piano Roll controller lane. You can also convert MIDI automation envelopes back to CC events. You can also choose to convert only a selected part of your CC events / automation envelope and back again. Converting MIDI controllers to envelopes: In the Piano Roll view Controller pane, click the name/label of the CC type that you want to convert to an envelope. Right-click the highlighted CC name/label and select Convert MIDI to Envelopes. Cakewalk converts the Piano Roll view controller data to a Track view envelope that controls the same parameter. Converting envelopes to MIDI controllers: This can be useful, for example, if you want to use the Transform tool in the Piano Roll view Controller pane. In the Clips pane, show the envelope that you want to convert to MIDI controller events. Select the time range that contain the controller data you want to convert, or clear the selection if you want to convert the entire envelope. Right-click envelope and select Convert to MIDI Events. Conversion uses the current Snap to Grid setting as a resolution for discrete CC events: If Snap is off, the resolution is the last selected snap setting If Snap is not set to a musical value (e.g. samples), the resolution is 1/32nd note UI theme compatibility checker IMPORTANT: The Inspector header has a new Show/Hide Tempo Inspector button . In addition to the new button, the other header buttons have been resized. Custom user themes must be updated in order to show the header buttons properly. When you select a theme in Edit > Preferences > Customization - Themes, or launch Cakewalk with an old custom user theme active, Cakewalk checks to make sure the custom theme is compatible with the current version of Cakewalk. A user theme is considered incompatible if Cakewalk contains new or resized UI elements that have not been updated in the theme. If the selected theme needs to be updated, Cakewalk will show a Custom Theme Incompatibility warning, and ask if you want to continue to use the theme: If you click Yes, some UI elements might be corrupted until the theme is updated and resaved in Theme Editor. If you click No, Cakewalk will revert to the factory Mercury theme. Behavior changes Disable Arranger Preview if project does not support it To reinforce that Arranger Preview is not supported in projects that contain video, Rewire synths, and active Region FX, Arranger Preview is now disabled in such projects. Optimizations High resolution Plug-in Automation improvements Plug-in automation envelopes were previously being decimated at a uniform 50 msec interval. The automation rendering process has been redesigned to render at a much higher resolution of (default = 5 msec) and also make automation sample accurate (for VST3). For VST2 (or VST3 plug-ins that do not support sample accurate automation) the rendering will be buffer accurate. These improvements allows for much tighter sync when automating plug-in parameters synced to rhythm even at higher latencies. The higher resolution rendering also makes automating filter sweeps audibly smoother and without aliasing artifacts. The decimation interval can be changed via the audio configuration property AutomationDecimationMsec (2-30) in preferences. Accurate automation writing via MIDI remote control Writing automation for plug-in parameters automated via MIDI remote control is more accurate and curves should be smoothly represented. Bug fixes Stability Crash loading custom plug-in layouts Multichannel WAV files from Behringer X32 mixer crash on import to 24 bit Crash on close of attached project Crash when adding some plug-ins from track template Crash when writing plug-in automation on top of existing automation User reported crash with AmpleSound Cloudrum Crash drag exporting MIDI to browser Dragging a MIDI clip to Kontakt causes crash Crash after moving Arranger Section AmpleSound VST3 plug-ins crash when trying to play attached MIDI file Crash swapping Sections in attached project UI FX Chain assigned controls not working after project reopen Aim Assist is not visible when moving the mouse in the Piano Roll time ruler Drag move of Step Sequencer clip crops unexpectedly Clip outlines in the Piano Roll are practically invisible in the Tungsten theme Dimmed envelopes difficult to see in Tungsten Hide Muted Clips in Piano Roll does not hide MIDI CCs Ripple Edit turns off unexpectedly after bouncing clip.

We would be very glad if people continue to enjoy them and be inspired by our sound and the passion we put into everything you can find there. Have a go! A HUGE, but I mean really HUGE thank YOU for everyone who supported our journey in so many ways, it was a wild ride and brought us both to where we are now. Ocean Swift, signing off! https://oceanswift.net/ -------------------- This is big. Windows only though.

    What makes you think this? There is a stable release now that came out about 60 days ago. How often do you usually get updates of your audio software? Other companies take way longer to issue updates than BandLab. Some even years or never. Usually with Cakewalk, when it takes longer than usual the next release will include some fab new features. Now that most of the longstanding bugs have been dealt with, we've seen biggies like the Arranger Track and Articulations Map. Maybe there's something new in the works. Maybe the developers took some time off. Whatever, 2 months is not a long time to wait for an update of DAW software.

    Just a thought.... I like the added Subforums which in reality should have been done (and was lobbied for) from the beginning. However, wouldn't it have also made sense to move the Deals forum up with the Subforum big boys? Deals include both Hardware & Software and is one the most trafficked on the website IMHO. ....just a thought.

    >>If I go thru the bug fixes in the last couple of releases, then I also see that many fixes are related to the new features! This is completely normal to the way we work. When we release a new feature we continue refining and making it as solid as possible before moving on to the next area. We also tend to fix issues by category. In every release we tackle areas like Plugins, editing, UX, workflow, performance and stability. So there is something there for everyone and the product gets better in every release. I’ll be the first to say that we still have plenty of room for improvement despite the fact that focus has been very high on making the product more stable since 2018. We look at the forums social media groups but the best way to get attention to problems and solve them quickly is to write specific and demonstrable reports of problems encountered, include a project file or video demonstrating the issue (if necessary) and include dump files if the issue is a crash or hang. And of course send the case to support and get a ticket to follow up. Following these basic steps has a much greater effect than making general statements like “I run into issues on every project”, etc. Not everyone has the time to do this, but if you care about getting issues fixed this is the only way.

    The latest Beat magazine includes the WA Production Fundamental Bass plugin. To get it you need to go to https://www.serialcenter.de and request the serial number (which doesn't require entering a word from magazine, at least not yet). The code they send you can be used at the WA store (link is in the email you get) to get the plugin for free (when checking out be sure to remove the automatically included free product or you can't checkout with the code). You can then download the product from your WA account and will have a serial number for it. (You can also download the product from Beat magazine -- but that requires a word from the magazine and won't work without a serial number). Here's a link to the product: https://www.waproduction.com/plugins/view/fundamental-bass I get Beat (both German and English) through Readly, a Netflix for magazines subscription service. They have almost all the British computer music magazines included. (my initial impression of the plugin is it's kind of meh and most likely not worth your time, but it's a deal I guess so I'm posting)

    Hi folks, There are a lot of new exciting features in this release. A reminder to please also take some time to also evaluate the new integrated BandLab library capabilities. Not only can this feature be used to publish to BandLab and collaborate with other musicians, you can also use it to save stem mixes of your project and play them anywhere, which can be very useful when testing mixes or trying to get opinions from other folks on your mixes such as in the songs forum. This is much more powerful than posting a stereo mix to your song, because if you additionally provide stems others can offer more constructive advice feedback on your mixes. (there are options to provide a full mix in addition to individual track/bus stems)

    Specifically the Plug-ins tabs. Having to right click and select from a list of categories is excess hassle. Even 3 years in to CbB, I still sometimes forget that I can't just drag a plug-in from Uncategorized to the folder where I want it.

    I do a lot of location recordings. Music, mostly. I've often nervously wondered what it would take to make my system fall over as my mobile rig is pretty humble. Specs are: HP ProBook6565b (i5 1.6Ghz) laptop 8GB Ram 1 x SSD Kingston 400 for OS 1 x internal Seagate HHD 1TB for Audio Win 10 Pro. RME Fireface800 Asio driver @256Samples Buffer Recording done at 48k, 24bit. I just finished tracking three choirs for a project and it was all recorded in layers on location, totaling 238 audio tracks (pic attached). Recording was done 2 tracks at a time with no plugins on any tracks. Each of the 10 subgroups of voices was routed through an Aux with Breverb running for on the fly playback mixes, so that's 10 x Auxes and 10 x Breverb. Well, the bottom line is the system had a few dropouts towards the last session when I was jumping around a bit too quickly between takes, but it never had an audio dropout or even a pop or crackle during tracking. It felt solid and would probably be solid for another 20 or 30 tracks, if not more. I may well clone the tracks to see how far I can still push it. Disk performance hovered between 15% and 50% depending on the amount of tracks in that section of the production. I thought the info might come in handy to someone, somewhere It's good to know CbB is up there (and in my opinion ABOVE) some of the "pro" DAWs..

    I have from the start of the BandLab era been vocal on this topic. Not going to jump in with anything that's already been said. A thing about this that continues to baffle me is why people seem to think that a bunch of random users on a public forum would be able to answer this. We're not privy to any insider information. Any software company can go out of business. Steinberg, Presonus, MAGIX, Cockos, Tracktion (has done at least once), Acoustica, all of them. When companies go out of business, they sell off their assets. In the case of software companies, their intellectual property (software code base, patents, trademarks) gets liquidated. This is how Cakewalk got to its current favorable status. If BandLab should decide to tank the whole Cakewalk experiment, they will likely liquidate the IP and it will live on. While I feel the pain; who likes to pay for something that shows up a week later as the Pluginboutique freebie of the month? Happened with me a few times. I paid for Ozone Essentials, which today seems crazy, it's being given away left and right. If I had waited 30 days, the $20 I spent on BYOME would have dropped to free with my vouchers. It's all in the game. I got to mess with BYOME for a month, which is a lot of value. And the guys at Unfiltered deserve some of my hard-earned for making such a great bit of software. They deserve more than $20, actually. My take on it, as someone who coughed up for a SONAR license about 20 years ago and then started back up in the BandLab era is that (y)our license fee(s) weren't thrown away, they went to keep the company afloat long enough to survive to be picked up by another company (who is of course delivering on updates in a big way). Also, your copy of SONAR Platinum came with other software that I'd love to have but that money literally can't buy. Now we can collaborate in native format with anyone with an internet connection and a Windows system. I'd say that there are worse deals.

    In case you didn't see it in their description on their site, the Orchestrator was made in collaboration with Sonuscore. Also, if you didn't see this video in the 200+ Page thread in VIC, it is hysterical.

    I just wrote to Terry's wife Joan to give her Larry's email address (with his permission) so she can tell him the best way for her to receive the funds. I also told her that if she'd rather communicate through me I'll pass along her details. Will update if/when I hear back.

    I just want to say here that this is one of the things I love about this forum: despite the unhelpful troll-y nature of the OP, the discussion mutated into this helpful, long, thought-provoking thread that's now gone on for 6 months. It's like going to a wrestling match where one guy pins the other one and instead of going on and beating on each other, they start talking with about the difficulties of being pro wrestlers and reminiscing about how things were back in the day when they were getting started, how the rules have changed, etc. 😂

    I thought I would share some fun news. Tonight on ABC at 7:00 PM EST, I will be on America’s Funniest Home Videos. I am not sure where in the program, but keep a look out for someone talking about the hazards of lawnmowers and bees 🐝

    I remember during the Gibson days when many people complained about the monthly updates, because they felt there wasn't enough time to learn new stuff before there was more new stuff.

    Do you like watching a watermelon blown up in ultra-slow-motion? Who doesn't? What about hitting a banana with a baseball bat? Or dropping an egg into a mousetrap? Then my newest video is for you. I admit that it is a product of me learning how to use Adobe Premiere. I also think my version of the Tchaikovsky music using the Cinematic Studio series sounds pretty decent.

    I got this yesterday. This is my first Creator Series, and I was surprised to see that you can get up to 9 drums/percussion instruments on one note! And some of these are pretty poweful drums! I'm sure it is well explained in the demos, but it didn't sink into my head, as when I think of a kit, my brain is programmed to think of it as different instruments on each note. With this you can get a huge kit on one note. And when you start playing these patterns... let's just say full versions of the MIDI files are aimed mainly at the very LOUD end of the spectrum. The demos make this clear. If you make epic music, this will rock you. And I could see how somebody could do a cue for an action movie just using one of the presets. Certainly you wouldn't need much more. At the same time, each production kit has versions that are only high or only low. So you can get some nice variations there. I can see myself using those the most. There are some really great things in there. But what really is great about it is the high quality of the sampling and MIDI patterns. They add up to drum beats that sound as real as they are dynamic. With all the great drums recorded I can make more modest kits for myself that will work very well for my needs. I'm happy with my purchase.
