  1. So you guys suggest to hold them back as long as possible and install them later?

    Mine is 21H1 but honestly I don't know if it's good or bad or neutral and should I do anything about it....

    Still bit confused about all this, cause some people are suggesting me to keep on updating and other suggestiing to stay away from updates as far as possible.

     Btw Im using my laptop not only for music but as a regular day to day computer

    Another question is should I turn off automatic updates and make Win10 ask each time before downloading? Can I leave it there as  a way to prevent ant updates ever?

    Regarding disk image - I will make one right away! Thanks for advice

  2. I've tried option with setting the clip grouping  before recording - the results is exactly what I was looking for! 

    Thanks once again for this enlightenment.

    I wish I knew it elirer couse I already have few sessions with guitar takes on muti-mick tracks. 

    Could I request a feature that would allow me to group them same way but >> after << the recording ... without the necessity of selecting and grouping every each take lane manually?

    You grouped all the clips from every take together. You don't group all the clips in all the takes. You must group take 1 from track 1 with take 1 from track 2, 3 .... etc. Then do the same for take 2.

    Then when you comp and select take 1 from track 1, take 1 from all the tracks will be selected. If you record the takes with the Group All Clips then this will already be done for you. Otherwise, you will have to set it up manually

    Ok, I got it now :)

    Thanks for helping me to understand.

    So in order to enjoy this feature in CbB I have to prepare the tracks >> before << recording. I will give it a try tomorrow.

    And this project that I have already recorded I would have to manually create group for each take from each track ...oh well,  quite a labor but worth the effort ;)

    Well then, thanks guys for your help.

    My love to Cakewalk is even stronger now, nevertheless what I once saw in Logic can't be unseen. Therefore I willll keep this post alive  but change the request:

    I wish this feature in CbB would be more simple. So I wouldn't have to change recording methods each time but rather be able to group the tracks  with it's lanes in more convenient way at any given time during the session. 

    So when I have "thousand" takes already recorded from multiple microphones I could just chose the tracks,  group them quickly in just few clicks and then have fun with choosing lanes.

    Cheers!


  4. Dear gentlemens

     Im realy grateful for your comments but Im afraid that none of your suggestions is the solution Im looking for.  

    I invite you to watch a short movie I made. Sorry for the quality - I made it quickly just to show the issue. The sound is low so give yourself a generous notch up on volume knob.

    Write me if I'm still missing something or do I do something wrong but so far I couldn't find in CbB a multiple tracks lanes editing feature that would be so simple as in Logic.

     


  5. Thank you for replying.

    I will try to clarify: Im looking for a way that will allow me to simultaneously edit take lanes in group of tracks - so in situation where I have multiple microphone recording and several takes i can group this tracks and then focus only on one track, open it's lanes and edit them and all my operations will automatically be applied to the same take lane in rest of the tracks from that group.

    In order to specify what exactly I mean I have found another video on which you can see this feature in Logic. Please write if what you wrote in previous comment is something similar. 

    watch from 3:17 to 4:24

  6. Hi

    Allow me to describe situation example:

    I have recorded guitar on three tracks: two micks and one line. 9 takes so i have 9 take lanes on each track. Now when I do comping I really would like to do it on all three tracks (and all 27 take lanes) in the same time. Grouping the clips does not work well for take lanes. 

    My friend showed me on Logic a cool feature - comping multiple take lanes across more than one track - when you do comping on one track the same operation is instantly done on every other track (and it's lanes) in selected group of tracks. I know that everyone who tried it at least once in Ligic is positively surprised how easy this can be. Could we make it so easy in CbB, please?

    Below on YT video you can see how it works in Logic (from 2:14):

  7. Hi everyone.

    Please share you way of making  backup of your precious CbB projects.

    I heard that saving as bundles often result in corruption. I dont know if I want to take that risk...

     

    And what next?

    External drive? Online backup service?  Or maybe burning DVD and fill up the attic ;) ?

    What is your favourite way?

    The track envelopes can be copied and pasted in another track too. Not so for clip envelopes.

    Yep.  Would be cool if we could have same freedom with clip envelopes.

    Just wanna add that my trick with removing clip from under the track envelopes is useful in a situation when you copied a track (or clip) and you want to delete the clip but leave all its automation .  Its just other way to select all envelopes and copy to a new track.


  9. Then I would assign it to a keyboard shortcut and I would be in heaven!

    That would be a real time saver.  Many times I want to repeat the last command - for example when I experiment with smthng, say transposing or reversing one clip and I hear that its good decision, then in order to repeat that command to another clip or bunch of clips I have to go through same process again which is again few clicks instead of one. 

    Even toy like AudaCity had this feature and it was really handy.

    My little wish ;)

    Cheers

    For over a year, it has not been necessary to use BandLab Assistant for CbB updates.

     

    Yes, that is truly a great  that we can skip Bandlab assistant. But still for those (like me) who cannot for some reason update from Cakewalks Help menu (as it only goes to an error:  "could not check for updates please try again later") there is a way around - through bandlab assistant ;)

    BandLab Assistant is not necessary.

    Starting with 2020.09 CbB may be updated from the CbB Help menu. See http://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=NewFeatures.038.html

    Alternately, there is an early release of Cakewalk Web Installer available. This tool will perform first time installs and updates.

    Yes, thanks for sharing. Its good to mention that, unfortunately for me that was not an option.

    Maybe i should write earlier that in my case update from the Cakewalk Help manu was not working - "could not check for updates please try again later".  So I had to find a way around. I read on few other threads that other people had similar problem, so I share my solution :)


  12. Hi everyone.

    I also had same issue.

    After many attempts i finally managed to update my CbB.

    I uninstalled  Bandlab assistant then I have found an older version od bandlab assistant, installed it and from there  the update finally could be downloaded. And after installing update for Cakewalk I updated my assistant :)

    If this will not work for you, then before updating CbB from older assistant go to your firewall settings and allow Bandlab and Cakewalk go thru your firewall then disable any anty virus software that is running  (dont forget to switch it back ON after you download the update!)

    Good luck!

  14. Hi

    Try this: copy the track/clip - it should be copied with the automation. Then grab the end of the clip and just drag it to the right a few bars (just roll not stretch) where there is no more automation dots or lines. Then grab the beginning ot that clip and also drag (roll)  it right till you  drag it out from under the automation envelope.  You should now have a naked automation line without the clip left in the track and next to it on the right a piece of clip with no audio and no automation on it. Then delete that piece of clip- and there you are   left with only automation. Write if it worked for you.
