Unrelated bugs or feature requests should be posted in other threads or the feature request channel. Thanks again for your participation! The Bakers 2021.01 Highlights New features Arranger section inclusion of outlying MIDI notes When dragging sections or committing arrangements, Cakewalk has logic for dealing with leading/trailing MIDI notes that overlap section boundaries. In the following example, section 2 is selected. The underlying MIDI clip contains note events that start slightly before section 2 and end slightly after section 2. By default, selecting section 2 will ignore the portions of overlapping note events that fall outside the section boundaries. Cakewalk now lets you optionally include the full duration of overlapping note events. Notes that overlap section boundaries: Leading/trailing notes are often created in the following scenarios: The recorded performance is unquantized and notes appear slightly earlier than the section start. When using a sound with a slow attack, and the notes have to be played early to make up for the attack time. Leading notes as part of a lead-in phrase, or droned notes that overlap with the section boundaries. You can specify the threshold that determines which overlapping note events are included when moving sections. To do so, click the Track view MIDI menu and point to Arranger Section Event Overlap Threshold, then select one of the following options: Off. Ignore overlapping notes. Note value (Whole – 1/256 Triplet). Only include notes that overhang by a duration equal to or less than the selected value. Any Overlap. Include overlapping notes of any duration. When overlapping notes fall within the threshold set, those notes are included in the section move/copy and the clip start/end is automatically resized (slip-edited) to accommodate the notes. The moved notes are also removed from the neighboring sections. This requires Non-destructive Editing to be enabled, and works best with Split MIDI Note enabled. The Arranger Section Event Overlap Threshold setting affects all arranger drag operations, delete, commit arrangement, and Duplicate from the section context menu. Absolute time in Arranger tracks The time base format for each Arranger track can be set to either Musical or Absolute. The time base format determines what happens to sections when you change the project tempo. To toggle between musical and absolute time, click the icon to the left of the Arranger track name in the Track view: Musical . A section’s M:B:T position stays constant, and its absolute position shifts. Absolute . A section’s absolute position stays constant, and its M:B:T position shifts. Absolute time is useful for scoring to film/video. The Arranger track tooltip shows time as H:M:S:F and samples. When committing an arrangement, the following rules apply: If all the sections came from absolute time Arranger tracks, the committed arrangement track will be absolute. If the sections came from musical Arranger tracks (or a mixture of musical/absolute), the committed arrangement track will be musical. SSO (Single Sign-On) for Cakewalk activation Cakewalk supports SSO (Single Sign-On) for activation, which allows you to log in via any service supported by BandLab as your sign-in authority. Google, Facebook, Apple ID, mobile phone and BandLab user/password credentials are currently supported. SSO is only used for Cakewalk activation, and under normal circumstances you will only need to sign in once. Cakewalk will attempt to refresh your activation status silently and automatically on occasion during start up. Use the SSO login as you have done with your BandLab account in the past. Note that BandLab Assistant is still required for requesting offline activation of Cakewalk on computers that don’t have an Internet connection. Enhancements Cancel VST scan You can now cancel an in-progress VST scan with the new Cancel Scan button in Edit > Preferences > File - VST Settings or via the Cancel option in the VST Scan toast notification. The next scan operation will resume where the canceled scan left off, starting with the plug-in it was last scanning. If the last scanned plug-in was a shell plug-in (such as Waves WaveShell), the scan will resume from he first plug-in in the shell). Auto termination of VST scan Shutting down Cakewalk will now automatically terminate any scan in progress. This allows in-app updates to work properly even if a scan was in progress when the app was shut down to perform a new install. Zoom to Fit Project Horizontally shortcut The new Zoom to Fit Project Horizontally key binding zooms to fit the entire project in the Clips pane, without affecting the height of tracks. The default keyboard shortcut is CTRL+ALT+F. Improved selection with Arranger sections If there are gaps between a range of selected sections, the unselected clips remain unselected. You can now unselect fully selected clips from a selection and they will not be moved with the section. Cutting Arranger section deletes hole Cutting an Arranger section with Ripple Edit enabled now deletes the hole to make it consistent with the Delete command. Clicking on an articulation section now triggers keyswitch events Clicking on an articulation (without modifiers), or changing an articulation’s type or MIDI channel now sends any triggered MIDI events associated with the articulation. Control Bar Select module changes Four new buttons have been added to the Control Bar’s Select module in Large mode: Select Track Envelopes with Clips . When enabled, selecting a clip will also select any overlapping track envelopes. Select Track Articulations with Clips . When enabled, selecting a clip will also select any overlapping track articulations. Select Events with Sections . Enable/disable automatic selection of track events when selecting Arranger sections. By default, clicking an Arranger section also selects underlying track events. Clicking again de-selects track events, while retaining selection of the section. Select Sections with Time Ruler . When enabled, making a time selection in the time ruler will also select any overlapping Arranger sections. Right-click or keep the mouse button pressed for a brief moment specify if sections should be selected in all Arranger tracks, or only the active Arranger track: Select Sections with Time Ruler (Active Arranger Track). Making a time selection in the time ruler will also select any overlapping Arranger sections in the active Arranger track. Select Sections with Time Ruler (All Arranger Tracks). Making a time selection in the time ruler will also select any overlapping Arranger sections in all Arranger tracks. The four buttons are linked to the corresponding menu items within the Track view Options menu, and work in exactly the same way. The previous Large mode for the Select module is now the Medium mode. Moving clips between lanes on the same track obeys Auto Crossfade setting Moving clips between Takes lanes on the same track now obeys the Auto Crossfade setting. Insert Instrument track behavior When selected from the track context menu, the Insert Instrument command now inserts the instrument before the current track rather than after the last track. The Add Track button and Insert > Soft Synth command will continue to append after the last track. Similarly, the Append Instrument Track command in the track context menu will append the new per-output instrument track directly below the current track. Selecting Append Instrument Track from the Synth Rack context menu will continue to append after the last track. Phase/Interleave buttons on Instrument tracks Phase and Interleave buttons are now available in the Track view and Inspector for Instrument tracks. Tip: You can show and hide controls in track and bus strips in the Track view, and even create presets for your favorite control layouts. To show or hide the Phase and Mono/Stereo Interleave buttons in the Track view, open the Track Control Manager and specify the visibility of the Interleave/Phase group. Option to only use external MIDI inputs MIDI track’s that have their Input control assigned to All Inputs receive MIDI data from both external (i.e. hardware) inputs and any soft synth outputs from other tracks. When inserting a soft synth, Cakewalk defaults to enabling MIDI output if it is supported by the synth. As a result, MIDI output from Instrument tracks may be inadvertently played/recorded on all other MIDI tracks if the tracks are armed for recording or have MIDI Input Echo enabled. To address this, MIDI tracks now have a new All External Inputs input option, which only appears when at least one soft synth with a MIDI output is present in the project. All External Inputs means any MIDI input that isn’t an output from a soft synth, such as hardware MIDI ports and virtual controllers. In earlier versions, switching the active MIDI track would normally select All Inputs. This behavior has changed to: If the track previously included soft synth outputs in its inputs, then it will show as All Inputs. If the track previously only had hardware inputs, then it will show as All External Inputs. Export to Standard MIDI File respects selection Export to Standard MIDI File (File > Export > Standard MIDI File) now respects the selection. If there is no selection, the whole project is exported. Updated LAME MP3 encoder The integrated LAME MP3 encoder has been updated to version 3.100. This includes bug fixes and stability improvements to MP3 encoding and also speeds up the encoding process. Additionally, Cakewalk has been updated to now handle discarding padding samples when importing MP3 files. i.e imported MP files will not contain extra data at the beginning of the file. Updated libsndfile encoders The libsndfile library used for import and export of various audio formats has been updated to version 1.0.30. This fixes numerous issues with handling BWF, Wave64, AIFF, FLAC and Ogg files. Optimizations Dynamic plug-in parameter optimizations Cakewalk 2021.01 introduces improvements in responsiveness and memory footprint when loading and editing projects with lots of tracks and high parameter count plug-ins. In previous versions of Cakewalk, plug-in automation parameters for all listed plug-ins were always created up front. This could result in a significant performance and memory hit when using plug-ins that expose hundreds or thousands of parameters, especially in projects that contains many tracks. Internal parameter objects are now created on demand when a parameter is actually used, either by modifying a parameter or by creating an automation envelope for it. A track’s Edit Filter menu no longer lists hundreds of parameters for plug-ins but instead only shows in-use parameters. To select other parameters in the Edit Filter menu, point to the plug-in name and select Choose Parameter to open the Choose Plug-in Parameter dialog box. Improved handling of ProChannel automation Automating the ProChannel Enable parameter would previously only work if the ProChannel UI was visible. ProChannel bypass automation is now UI independent and also buffer accurate. ProChannel bypass will also properly enable/disable with automation during fast bounce and freeze operations. Bug fixes Stability Crash when running onboarding more than once Crash when attempting to load new sample in Drum Replacer Hang on project load while VST scan is running Redo of crop then move of Articulation crashes Automation crash on project close UI Step Sequencer Clips intermittently fail to show notes Step Sequencer Beat Counter fails to repeat on Groove clip repetitions PRV does not display repetitions of Step Sequencer loops Track names show incorrectly in plug-ins after 2020.11 update Transport fails to roll with Realtime Bounce when freezing Cursor moves unexpected after cancel of Kind in Event List After deleting last event in Event List, selection should go to previous event Assignable parameters not created for FX Chains on project load Project Editing Time displays inconsistently in File Stats Arranger Ripple Edit Cut not shifting Arranger sections as expected Section/Arrangement titles missing in 2020.11 Articulation Maps Allow drag move/copy of multiple articulations Mouse cursor gets moved/stuck on articulation events in Event List Scaling PitchWheel events gives incorrect results Automation Cannot bounce or freeze ProChannel Enable automation unless it is done in realtime Selection becomes stuck unexpectedly when selecting envelopes Bus envelopes from multiple buses not copied correctly in duplicate clips/arranger operations Toggling track interleave causes plug-in automation to lose sync ProChannel automation cannot be reassigned to plug-in automation in tracks Automation read/write not being acknowledged for newly created FX parameters Copying and pasting FX automation envelopes create orphaned envelopes until parameters pre-created FX Chain Input/Output Gain envelopes controlling incorrect parameter in FX Chain UI Synth Rack automation not shown when changing synth parameters Misc. Allow adding of additional per-output instrument tracks via Synth Rack context menu Add Track inconsistent Insert Track behavior Projects with multiple instances of plug-ins with high parameter counts become very sluggish trying to close/remove instances UseGlobalSnapForStaffView variable stops working after opening older project Imported .wav file has clicks from time stretch Drum Maps are saved unexpectedly with Track Templates VST Scan does not close with the app Control Surface Refresh value does not change as expected below 25ms

    I've spent the better part of a month creating Cubase track icons for various things. I figured I would give them away to anyone who wishes to have them. I've included VSTs from Air, Arturia, Native Instruments, Reaktor Ensembles, Steinberg, KV 331, Izotope, U-He, UVI, etc. I also created icons for every Kontakt Library in Komplete Ultimate, as well as third party libraries from 8Dio, Cinematic Studio, East West, Ethera, Orange Tree Samples, Sample Logic, XLN, etc. They are free to anyone who wants them, and can be downloaded here: Link

    [Updated to build 93] This hotfix addresses a few problems users have reported since 2021.01 was released and also includes some new fixes and optimizations. The following issues are addressed: Projects containing certain plug-ins fail to open in 2021.01 release. We received reports that some SoundToys plugins cause projects to fail to load Crash inserting Kuasa plugin Deleting an articulation occasionally splits it into two smaller but invisible articulations Show/Hide Articulation Pane in PRV does nothing if there are no articulations on the track Ripple All not working when deleting from Arranger Inspector Adding a new articulation event should default to velocity 100 Fixed bitmap memory leak in when editing using audio snap that could cause blank screen VST3 Host Bypass does not work with plugins that report it as non-automatable Automation write not working with certain VST2 plugins until envelope was created Freezing a synth could cause synth automation on all tracks to get orphaned MMCSS now assigns all threads to the same MMCSS task groups for better efficiency. MMCSS thread limit has been increased to 128 to handle high number of cores. [Requires reboot after install to take effect] Increased contrast of PRV clip outlines so they are visible regardless of current theme. Arranger: Fix for trailing notes being incorrectly picked up by a section. Ripple All not working when deleting from Arranger Inspector - additional fix for handling del key in the inspector. Ripple Edit delete Section with overlapping notes at the end not working Skip non automatable parameters in choose parameter dialog Updated CWAF tool latest known version number string to "27.13.0.xxx". Ripple edit delete using section overlaps crops the clip at the end of the left sections MMCSS threads not properly unregistered on engine termination MMCSS threads could exceed quota with repeated changes to preferences CbB no longer attempts to set ASIO thread priority when MMCSS is not enabled Plugin Load balancing threads were not being released Remove unexpected dropout message when creating or loading new projects Unexpected sample rate conversion message when bouncing audio Add Instrument Track not putting audio track in folder / unable to remove from folder Thanks for your support testing this hotfix. In particular, please test ASIO with MMCSS enabled (and disabled) since there are some specific optimizations to the audio engine in this area that should make it more efficient. You will need to reboot your PC after installing this update to test this properly. If you are still seeing any issues after installing this hotfix please report them in the main 2021.01 feedback thread to keep reports centralized. Please note that this is an early access release - we should officially release this sometime next week after collecting more feedback. Download the 2021.01 hotfix (build 93) Should you need to revert to the 2020.11 release, you can download the Cakewalk 2020.11 Rollback installer. To install, download and run the hotfix installer. Note: If you are running Waves plugins, you may need to reboot your PC prior to running the installer if you receive an error that sndfile.dll is locked.

    So I bought the AAS Humble Bundle and contacted AAS to see if they would exchange some of my duplicates for different packs. They were generously willing to give me two different packs. However, I still have a number of duplicates which are doing me no good and only cluttering up my AAS account. I am feeling rather generous, because of AAS's generosity to me so I want to give away what I can't use. I think I can just pass them off to others by filling out a form on AAS's site. I don't believe there is any transfer fee. Here is what I have to give away... Lounge Lizard Session 4 Strum Session 2 (x2) Ultra Analog Session 2 (x2) Angelicals Cinémathèque (x2) Multiverse Synbiosis PM me if you want any of these. I don't want anything for them. Maybe just pay it forward to someone else someday.

    I'm cross-posting this to Instruments and Effects. Not long ago A|A|S came out with major updates to Chromophone, Ultra Analog, String Studio, and A|A|S Player/Swatches (what you use to play sound packs if you don't have the aforementioned synths). Version 3. I noticed at the time that they mention in the sound pack blurbs that the ones derived from those instruments have been "remastered" for version 3. I did some side-by-side listening tests with A|A|S player, and yes, the sounds were "bigger," even in just Player. Upon further listening, I noticed that some of the sounds were not only bigger, but have changed tonally, to the point where I feel I can't fully trust my use of them in pre-version 3 projects. Not that I'm going to switch to another sound, but that I might have to do a bit of tweaking in order to make sure the sounds still sit where I want them in the mix. tl/dr: If you've updated your A|A|S sound packs since the v. 3 release and have projects that use those sounds, pay close attention to make sure that your A|A|S hasn't gotten too big for the mix. Easy enough to tweak with something like Sidewidener and maybe your favorite EQ.

    I have a fix for that. Apparently that is all you get now with AL V if you are using the controller setting for "Generic MIDI controller". AL will auto-configure for certain Arturia controllers, but will default to "generic" if not. AL 4 used to show all of the controls regardless, so it looks like they made AL V "smarter", LOL. One step back actually, ha! Just open the AL V settings gear icon in the top right, and select the MIDI tab; click on the pull-down menu for MIDI controller and you will see a list of controllers that you can select from. Keylab 49 or 61 work fine for me, and I see all the controls again, even though I am actually using a generic controller.

This could result in a significant performance and memory hit when using plug-ins that expose hundreds or thousands of parameters, especially in projects that contains many tracks. Internal parameter objects are now created on demand when a parameter is actually used, either by modifying a parameter or by creating an automation envelope for it. A track’s Edit Filter menu no longer lists hundreds of parameters for plug-ins but instead only shows in-use parameters. To select other parameters in the Edit Filter menu, point to the plug-in name and select Choose Parameter to open the Choose Plug-in Parameter dialog box. Improved handling of ProChannel automation Automating the ProChannel Enable parameter would previously only work if the ProChannel UI was visible. ProChannel bypass automation is now UI independent and also buffer accurate. ProChannel bypass will also properly enable/disable with automation during fast bounce and freeze operations. Bug fixes Stability Crash when running onboarding more than once Crash when attempting to load new sample in Drum Replacer Hang on project load while VST scan is running Redo of crop then move of Articulation crashes Automation crash on project close Rare crash after modifying event in Piano Roll then pressing play UI Step Sequencer Clips intermittently fail to show notes Step Sequencer Beat Counter fails to repeat on Groove clip repetitions PRV does not display repetitions of Step Sequencer loops Track names show incorrectly in plug-ins after 2020.11 update Transport fails to roll with Realtime Bounce when freezing Cursor moves unexpected after cancel of Kind in Event List After deleting last event in Event List, selection should go to previous event Assignable parameters not created for FX Chains on project load Project Editing Time displays inconsistently in File Stats Rename clip doesn't work on MIDI clips if articulations exist on the track Installer Text/Progress Bar for Silent Install is truncated Bus pane not updating correctly after using track manager to hide/show buses Clicking on a note within the Piano Roll view or swapping active tracks automatically opens the Articulation Map pane Arranger Ripple Edit Cut not shifting Arranger sections as expected Section/Arrangement titles missing in 2020.11 Articulation Maps Allow drag move/copy of multiple articulations Mouse cursor gets moved/stuck on articulation events in Event List Scaling PitchWheel events gives incorrect results Automation Cannot bounce or freeze ProChannel Enable automation unless it is done in realtime Selection becomes stuck unexpectedly when selecting envelopes Bus envelopes from multiple buses not copied correctly in duplicate clips/arranger operations Toggling track interleave causes plug-in automation to lose sync ProChannel automation cannot be reassigned to plug-in automation in tracks Automation read/write not being acknowledged for newly created FX parameters Copying and pasting FX automation envelopes create orphaned envelopes until parameters pre-created FX Chain Input/Output Gain envelopes controlling incorrect parameter in FX Chain UI Synth Rack automation not shown when changing synth parameters Misc.

    Just a guess, but you wanted the request-new-features/improvements section. From what I have seen this thread is for reporting successes and problems specifically with the current Early Access release.

    A few years ago I decided to fast from buying Music products for one whole month, a Feb or March (so after the holiday rush). I made it through the month, but then ended up spending far more the next month catching up with sales that were still in effect/etc. I think it would be better for me to focus on really using the things I buy. Or even better, using the things I've already bought.

    I want a new guitar so I reach in the closet and grab an old guitar I've had for years and now I pretend it's a new guitar .... I thought about getting The New Spark Amp . Then I remembered to go to my closet and pull out my Yamaha THR 5 and Mini Katana ... I took all the money I would have spent on the Spark and took my dog to the vet , got him all his shots and licensed him . Then I bought a $ 60 dollar bag of Science Diet dog food just for him ... I thought about buying a new pedal just because I want a new pedal , so I walk over to my fire place and I look at the 5 brand new pedals I bought and I say even though I haven't touched them in months because I'm to lazy to set them up ...I still want a new pedal since I'm bored with knowing those 5 pedals are on my fireplace so I go and track down my former gigging pedal board and pull off one pedal from the board . I even used that one pedal for most of my guitar tones on my last few songs just by turning all the pretty little knobs until I found a sound I liked ... I wish this story had a happy ending but it doesn't .. You see all this musical productivity and extreme gear purchase frugality started to wear my out . I started to wish I had best friend of the female persuasion .... Then I realized I'll never get a girl anytime soon because I'm way to Cheap .....😘 Kenny
