  1. I feel the need to check in from time to time about this issue. Cakewalk for quite some time now, has an issue where it pads the beginning of any cakewalk file that has an mp4 or certain quicklime video loaded into the session time-line or perhaps the video itself contains the padding. The result is that everything looks and sounds fine in cakewalk when you are scoring to picture but after you export your music score, it is not in sync with the same video in other audio or video programs. When the MP4 or QT video gets inserted into a project, Cakewalk has about a frame of padding (or space) at the top of the file. That padding or space goes completely unnoticed until you export something as a broadcast wave or regular wave. You bring that audio into another program like Pro Tools or a video program like Sony Vegas, and that audio will play close to a frame late when brought into the new program's time line. (one of my original posts about it below. After many forum threads, the last I was told about it was that it has something to do the newer Windows Audio Architecture and that Cakewalk couldn't really do anything about it. Considering my other programs like Pro Tools or Sony Vegas don't have this issue in Windows would that be because they don't use the Windows Audio Architecture? (Hope I'm using the right term!) I wish Cakewalk would consider finding away around this or create a work-around for when you're working with MP4 or Quick Time files in Cakewalk. Like some sort of offset mode or similar. Or perhaps Cakewalk could try to work out the issue with Windows developers? Not sure what to suggest but I do know it's a really big flaw in Cakewalk for those wanting to use it for scoring or sound-designing to picture. This is one of the other older posts: Anyhow, If anyone has any insight or ideas I'd be thrilled to hear about them... Thanks! Jono
  2. Thanks, it is a little. I have it going now. I removed it from being a Mackie control surface and used the Korg Control Editor to set it up as a CC controller. Then you unplug it, hold down "set" and "cycle" while you plug it back in. Then I opened Cakewalk and it functioned like a midi CC controller. (To use as a control surface you unplug it and hold "Set" and "Record" while plugging it back in. Thanks! Jono
  3. Hi there, I just set up my Korg Nanokontrol 2 with cakewalk and I have it working as a control surface. Play/stop/mute etc. All working great. What I wish to do though, is use it to control parameters inside softsynths. Like, hit "learn" move a control on the Korg and it gets recognized in the soft synth. i can't seem to get that going. Can anyone point me to a tutorial or document that explains this? Or just give me an idea what might be wrong? I have it set up and checked in midi devices in and out but Cakewalk doesn't seem to respond to any messages. Perhaps because it's set up as an Act controller? Not sure. Any help would be appreciated... Thanks! Jono
  4. I have the "preview" bus hidden, is that why I have the issue then? Thanks Jono
  5. Here is one (attached) Wavefore preview test.zip
  6. I spoke too soon. I thought the wave form preview was working again but after closing and reopening the session and other sessions I still have the problem. I'll attach a short video showing the issue Thanks waveform preview.wmv
  7. Thanks Noel! I had not seen that! Worked like a charm. Funnily enough, after changing it to not "Set time during playback" the wave form preview worked properly again! And even more odd, when I switched it back again the wave preview still worked. Thanks very much!
  8. It seem that waveform preview (where a preview of your waveform gets drawn on-the-fly) does not work properly in CWBL. Nothing draws during playback unless you click on the screen/bus and then a small portion of the waveform will show, this is the same on synth audio tracks. Also, clicking anywhere on the screen now in Cakewalk makes the cursor go to that point which is very annoying. You used to have to click on the ruler for that to happen which was great. Cakewalk, think about fixing "Waveform preview" so it works and perhaps put back clicking on the time line without changing cursor during playback. There are many reasons you need to click on the screen to un-highlight things etc. You rarely need the cursor to move when you click the screen. Thanks
  9. Add a setting called "maintain position of invisible data/automation" on/off or something then perhaps? I would think the idea of hiding ghosting data would simply be to clean up the screen and not have anything to do with moving data.
  10. You nailed it brother!!! That was it! SO, CAKEWALK tracks do not get selected with their clips if "Display Ghosted Data" is not enabled.... now we know. And that IS a bug, @Noel Borthwick ^ see above^ The clips should get selected regardless of ghosted data showing. Nothing to do with each other. They should fix that IMO. Thanks Chuck E Baby!!
  11. Hi Chuck E Baby, just noticing in your video above that your envelopes are faintly displayed even when you're in "clip" mode. Mine does not do that (unless I'm in X1 or Plat) Is your video above in Bandlab? Might be a clue there... Thanks
  12. I know you're trying to help and I appreciate it very much! I was just saying "what should I look for in a global setting?" is all. I went through all the settings in preferences turning stuff on and off and testing again, no change. I have Platinum as well and the problem doesn't exist there either, only in the Bandlab version. The one major difference I see, is that in both X1 and Platinum, when a track is set to "clips" it still shows a very faint image of the envelope on top of the clip and when you select a clip , you can see that the envelope also gets selected. In Bandlab however, the clip does not show the faint image of the envelope and the envelope does not get selected along with the clip UNLESS you expand the automation lanes, then it works as it should. I thought it might have something to do with x-ray but it didn't. I also tried using the track filter to switch back and forth, it didn't make a difference. I think that has the same function as the tools HUD but wanted to make sure. I wonder what it could be? Video card related? No idea. All my versions of CW (plat x1 and BL) have the same global settings as far as the way I set them up... I've attached a short video showing my preferences/settings in BL. settings.wmv
  13. Thanks guys, from your advice I got it working after watching this video on youtube: Very tricky! Thanks again!
