    If I go for it, this will be my 5th major upgrade since starting with Melodyne at version 1. Each time, I told myself no, the old version already does everything I need and the new features don't justify the upgrade price. And each time, Celemony eventually came around with an offer I couldn't refuse. But that usually happened a year after the release. Not saying that'll happen again, but they've been consistent in the past. It's a sensible strategy: snag all the instant-upgraders in the first round, then come back later to scoop up the stragglers. I'll be one of those. I've done the same with Kontakt and Ozone, both of which have consistently seduced me into belated upgrades with an "ok, what about this price?" email.

    FREE Hammond B3 - HaNon B70 "HaNon B70 is an emulator of the B3 Hammond equipped with a leslie 122. It is based on the emulation of the 91 toneWheels, which rotate permanently at low cost CPU, which allows to have natural keyClicks and a relatively simple synthesis. The leslie is composed of its tube preamp, its tube power amp and the emulation of the 2 rotors as well that first reflections on the body" https://www.lostin70s.com/#/plugins/HaNon B70 download here >>> https://www.lostin70s.com/#/download --- It's quite simple. The only thing I found really bad was the Vibrato simulation that cancels part of the volume and that's why I leave it off.

    I thought I'd post this here in a new topic, so it's a bit more visible than the other Melodyne threads. I've just upgraded Melodyne to version 5. It merged my two existing Melodyne 4 licenses into a single license (which was great, 'cos I only got charged once 😊 ), and it automatically moved 2 x Melodyne 5 licenses to my iLok account. The upgrade was seamless on my Windows 10 boot, and worked in CbB right away (I didn't even need to re-scan). However there are some gotchas... Melodyne 5 does NOT work on Windows 7 - if you're planning to stay on Windows 7, don't upgrade. Your Melodyne 4 installation AND your Melodyne 4 licenses will be removed - and actually, your v4 licenses become invalid at the point you purchase your upgrade Melodyne 5 is 64 bit only. So if (for example) you use an older 32 bit only version of SoundForge, it's not going to work with Melodyne any more.

    BBC SO Discover Template for Cakewalk: For those who have Cakewalk and bought or grabbed Spitfire's BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover for free, I created a simple Template to load all the instruments of the Orchestra with instrument icons, family colors, the tracks all named and separated in folders. There is no mystery. It is very basic. Just to have a starting point and not spend more than 2 hours assembling everything before starting to create music. Note: This consumes about 5.72 gigs of RAM to load all instruments. Note 2: If you make modifications to the template, it is better to leave the .png image next to the .cwt file when doing SAVE if you still want it to appear as a Template icon on the Cakewalk home screen. ------ (PT-BR) Template BBC SO Discover para Cakewalk: Para quem tem o Cakewalk e comprou ou pegou de graça o BBC Symphony Orchestra Discover da Spitfire, eu montei um Template simples para carregar todos os instrumentos da Orquestra com ícones de instrumentos, cores das famílias, as tracks todas nomeadas e separadas em pastas. Não tem mistério. É bem básico mesmo para ter um ponto de partida e não ficar gastando mais de 2 horas montando tudo antes de começar a criar música. Obs: Deve consumir uns 5,72 gigas da memória RAM para carregar todos os instrumentos. Obs 2: Se você fizer modificações no template, é melhor deixar a imagem .png junto do arquivo .cwt quando fizer o SAVE se ainda quiser ela aparecendo como ícone do Template na tela de início do Cakewalk. --- Thanks to the user @Matthew Sorrels for the track icons and for the other Template Spitfire BBC SO Discover - Cakewalk Template.zip

    2020.05 Early Access installer now available! We're pleased to announce the Early Access for 2020.054! This release introduces dynamic waveform scaling when changing clip automation, offline activation, enhancements to mono plug-in support , improved mouse wheel handling, lots of automation enhancements, optimizations, and over 50 bug fixes. We'd love for you to check it out before we drop the official public version, which should be in roughly a week. This time we're also providing an easy rollback installer should you need to quickly revert to the last public release for any reason. Please note that Early Access installers are update installers, which only update from a specific version. To install the 2020.05 Early Access build, you must be on the latest public release of 2020.04. Download Cakewalk 2020.05 EA installer Should you need to revert to the 2020.04 release, you can download the Cakewalk 2020.04 Rollback installer. If you haven't already done so, please read about the Early Access Program before participating. Thanks again for your participation! The Bakers 2020.05 Highlights New features Dynamic waveform scaling when changing clip automation When Display Clip Fade/Envelope Attenuation is enabled in Edit > Preferences > Customization - Display, Cakewalk dynamically updates the waveform amplitude when changing clip fades, clip gain automation and clip pan automation. The waveform display is pre clip FX Rack and only applies to clip automation, not track automation. Additionally, clip gain and pan envelopes are not applied to active Region FX clips. i.e. If you have a clip gain envelope on a Region FX clip, it will be ignored unless the effect is bypassed. The Display Clip Fade/Envelope Attenuation option is now also available as a key binding (under “Track View”). Offline activation Note: This will be available in the next update of BandLab Assistant, which will be released soon. Activation is the process by which Cakewalk validates that your software is genuine and being used in accordance with the license agreement. Cakewalk can now be activated by an online or offline process. Cakewalk will operate in Demo mode until it is activated, and saving and exporting will be disabled. A toast notification appears at the bottom of the screen to inform you if Cakewalk has not been activated yet. If your computer is connected to the internet, click the toast notification to open BandLab Assistant and activate Cakewalk. If Cakewalk is installed on a computer that is not connected to the internet, you can use offline activation as long as you have access to another computer that is connected to the internet. To use offline activation In Cakewalk, go to Help > Offline Activation > Export Activation Request to open the Save activation request dialog box. Select the folder you want to save the activation request file to, then click Save. Cakewalk saves a Activation request.crq file. This file is encrypted and machine-specific, and can only be used to activate Cakewalk on the machine that was originally used to create the Activation request.crq file. By default, Cakewalk appends a timestamp to the file name, using the following format: <Month><Day><Year>_<Hour><Minute>. For example: 052120_1157Activation request.crq. Copy the Activation request.crq file to removable media, such as a USB flash drive, that you can transfer to another computer that is connected to the internet. Using an online computer, open BandLab Assistant and sign in with your BandLab ID and password. Click the Apps tab. Under Cakewalk by BandLab, click the drop-down arrow next to the Open button, then click Process Offline Activation Request. If activation is granted, BandLab Assistant generates an Activation response.dat file. Copy the Activation response.dat file to removable media that you can transfer back to your offline Cakewalk computer. In Cakewalk, go to Help > Offline Activation > Import Activation Response to open the Import activation response dialog box. Select the Activation response.dat file and click Open. If the response file is valid, Cakewalk is activated. Early Access toast notification Early Access availability is checked whenever normal updates are checked, and a toast notification appears if an Early Access build is available. The Early Access Program provides pre-release versions of Cakewalk to the public for general testing and issue reporting. We provide Early Access builds to help us get better real world test coverage from users, which is useful to improve the reliability and quality of our releases. Participation is 100% voluntary. Please read this topic to learn more about the program. Enhancements Mono plug-in support changes This release greatly improves the FX Rack handling with respect to mixing and matching mono/stereo plug-ins. These improvements are across the board and work in track/bus/clip FX Racks, FX chains and the ProChannel. Bypassing or removing plug-ins in an FX Rack, Rack bypass or global FX bypass operations will now revert any mono/stereo interleave changes caused by the plug-in, and recalculate delay compensation properly. Changing the mono/stereo interleave from the track strip button now updates the FX Rack routing correctly. (Note: this is dependent on whether the ProChannel bin is pre FX Rack and if it contains mono plug-ins) Pitch shifted audio and distortion were symptoms of issues that are fixed in this release. This could occur under multiple scenarios, such as moving plug-ins, bypassing, deleting or undoing. Improved mouse wheel handling Console view vertical scrolling via mouse wheel is less prone to inadvertently adjusting parameter values if there is a brief pause during the scroll gesture (for example, while vertically scrolling with the mouse wheel, suddenly it starts scrolling the volume slider instead). The internal timer that waits for inactivity before treating the next mouse wheel movement as a new operation has been increased from 500ms to 1,000ms. This ensures that the current scroll operation doesn't change mid-gesture. In the Console view, tooltips dynamically show values when changing parameters via mouse wheel. FX Racks for tracks, buses and clips can be scrolled via mouse wheel. Increased contrast of ghosted envelopes The color contrast of ghosted automation envelopes has been increased, making them easier to see against the dark Clips pane background. Clicking on the bus pane now automatically sets the bus focus strip This facilitates copying and pasting bus envelopes by clicking and pasting. Scrollable Clip FX Rack in Inspector Clip FX Racks in Inspector now display up to 10 plug-ins and are scrollable using both mouse wheel and the scroll bar. Improved support for recording automation via numeric input When recording automation, envelope nodes can now be recorded by typing a value in the pop-up edit controls in the Inspector, Console view, Track view, ProChannel EQ, and EQ fly-out module. The numeric input will be recorded as a Jump during automation recording. To show the numeric input pop-up, give focus to a control or its value display, then press F2, or double-click the value display. Improved recording automation of synth parameters Multiple synth parameters can be recorded in a single record pass and all envelopes are now retained. While loop recording, in order to avoid clutter the automation preview only shows the last loop record pass. All recording envelopes will be displayed when you stop playback. Improved support for copying and pasting automation envelopes Automation envelopes can now be easily copied and pasted from tracks to buses and vice versa. To copy track automation to a bus, first select and copy the envelope from the track, then click on the target bus or lane and paste. You can also copy and paste bus automation to tracks the same way. Moving or copying arrangement sections now properly manages copying and pasting the associated bus and synth automation envelopes. Bus delete stability improvements Bus deletion can now be performed while the transport is rolling without stopping the audio engine. Also an intermittent crash and app shutdown on undoing bus deletion was solved. Optimizations When using workspaces, projects now open with the correct initial UI layout, rather than opening with the project layout and then visibly switching to the workspace layout. This is faster and prevents unwanted flicker. Many improvements and optimizations for editing mono effects in FX Racks Improvements to drag and drop between clip and track FX racks Solved multithreading race condition leading to latency when using Aggressive thread scheduling model Bug fixes Stability Crash on undo and redo of automation recording of synth parameters Deleting or undoing bus delete operation can crash User reported crash in 2020.04 Waves OVox plugin crashes on project load Crash when using SmartSwipe gesture in Piano Roll view track list Potential crash on startup unless specific Windows DPI settings are used Memory leak when using the Aggressive Thread Scheduling model Automation Unexpected envelopes created when moving section in project Bus automation copies to tracks unexpectedly with (Arranger) Section move Duplicate automation lanes can be created for unedited automation Draw Tool draws random points when drawing automation outside of lane Draw Tool not working as expected on bus automation in user project Stop at Project End not respected in projects with automation after deleting buses or replacing synths Automation behaves incorrectly after manually typing in a value Automation not fully removed when deleting bus Pasting bus automation should not rely on Copy/Paste Special Pasting bus automation doesn't change the edit filter leading to hidden envelopes Automation envelopes appear out of scale Cannot copy synth automation to buses Draw Tool does not update envelopes preview during playback Adding nodes by typing values during write automation over existing envelope causes unexpected results Synth automation gets discarded unexpectedly while write recording multiple parameters UI Scale for Synth automation not displaying correctly Clip FX in Inspector does not display more than 6 plug-ins Hit zone for Draw Tool on buses does not match Insert Soft Synth Options dialog should remember the checked/unchecked state of the Enable MIDI Output option User reported issue with zoom fader control becoming stuck [Chinese version] Overlapping text in Preferences > Customization - Display Tooltips for controls in the Console view do not update when changing values by mouse wheel Incorrect Track view tooltips when creating a new project with the Basic workspace Console view control tooltips show incorrect value and obscure value label when adjusted via mouse wheel Track view horizontal zoom slider window is shown in wrong position on secondary monitor Now Time cursor draws incorrectly Arranger Arranger options in Keyboard Shortcuts should specify “Arranger Track” Arranger Section time-format needs to be backwards compatible Bus Edit Filter changes unexpectedly after moving Section Section operations do not always move/copy track/bus automation Duplicating Section won't duplicate MIDI envelopes for Instrument tracks Double-click rename of Arrangement sections should not rewind to start of section during playback Misc.

    Meanwhile, on the “What’s new” front: only the new Fade and Sibilant Tools didn’t trickle down to Essential. BUT Essential does include the other new stuff: New: “Melodic” algorithm with sibilant detection – for perfect yet invariably natural-sounding results New: Musically weighted pitch analysis – for psycho-acoustically optimal intonation correction New: Leveling macro – reduce or eliminate excessive volume disparities between notes New: Chord Track and chord recognition – bring notes into line harmonically, extract chords from audio New: “Percussive Pitched” algorithm – for instruments such as tabla and berimbau or 808 kick drums Yowza! Not bad for a free upgrade.

    Fooled around with this for a few hours last night. I didn't own Scaler 1 so I don't know what is new. I put in simple chord progressions and then did different voicings. I have never seen anything that provides so many options. Not just simple inversions, like EZKeys. Different voicings is my favorite thing about the NI picked series, but this has so much more and this will allow me to do it with any library. One of the coolest is that it can take all your chords and put a single bass note underneath each one. That's a new one for me. This changes all of them into very complex chords. And you don't just put a C under a progression in the key of C--you can put an E under it and it gets reeally weird. It's amazing how much you can do with this just by putting in a few chords and then experimenting. Maybe too amazing, as I could get lost in it. The onboard instruments are remarkably good. I highly recommend downloading them as they help you get the most out of it. For example, the guitars are the best way to test the strumming options. But seriously there are a diverse set of sounds, from synth pads to orchestral that quickly show you how these musical progressions can work. Then I tried all the auto-player stuff. There's so many greato-soundingoptions and a lot of them are terrific. At its heart, this is very similar to the kind of tech in EZKeys and ujam instruments. You also don't need to put chords on the pads (like ujam, not like toontrack) You can just play chords and it will auto-play them. The only thing I found weird was their naming system, which is classical music-oriented. Maybe not the most intuitive language for the punters? I would rather have teir phrases be genre based. Scaler 2 offers you a bunch of bossa nova chord progressions. It would be cool to put a guitar on them and then play them with bossa nova phrases. But I don't want to complain about something that is really great and adds to all the other innovations in arps out there from Sonuscore and others. But it is a beast. I have a lot to learn. All of you who had Scaler 1 are way ahead of me, I'm sure. I think I will continue to make music and writing songs the way I always have. But once I am far along in a piece, I will put my existing chord progression in here and see if I can get some new ideas for accompaniment or voicing. Same thing with EZBass. These are two purchases that I don't think were just GAS. I really can see me using them all the time.
