  1. Hi, there's a little button (X) up in the transport "mixdown audio window" that will cancel a render if started. There is a bug with it that sometimes it disappears during a render and you can't stop the render (even by hitting escape).

    Annoying when you start to render a long file nd realize there's a problem You can't stop it and have to wait until the render completes. This is a bug.

  2. Hi, I have a file with the synth "Nerve" by xfer.

    I try to turn up one of the pads, like the kick drum. Soon as I hit play cakewalk seems to be telling it to turn back down to where it was. It's driving me nuts!

    There is no volume envelope or anything, it just keeps resetting. The track volume it at 127.

    When this happens in Kontakt, I open the instrument options and tell it to ignore standard controllers for midi and pan and it seems to let go of Kontakt and allows me to adjust a volume. This is so annoying.

    Anyhow, nerve doesn't have the same option that I can see, so for the life of me I can't turn up this kick drum.

    Any advice out there? (PS, I can't reload the Nerve drum patch because the program doesn't show what preset is loaded. Really poorly designed plug. But it sounds good and I need it...)

    Please help!

    Thanks

  3. Hi there, I've been experiencing something new in Cakewalk...

    My "basic" template that I open each time I create a new file, has a few synths loaded and ready. I always set up my basic template that way.

    Anyhow, recently, if I add a NEW synth, it creates the new synth with audio and midi track all good BUT it alters all the inputs of the other synth audio tracks! So if I have Kontakt in the session and I add Superior drummer or something, the Kontakt inputs change to something other that the Kontakt ins and I have to go change them back! 

    What could be causing this?? Perhaps something simple but I've never had it do this before. 

    Thanks

  4. Hi, I have a Korg Nanokontrol 2, set up as a cc controller. It's working fine.

    The fellow in this video below is able to use CC to also control his transport controls which I would also like to do: https://youtu.be/RnGTlJjFlFs?t=135  (around 2:15)

    I know how to set it up as a control surface using Mackie control but then the CCs don't work. He is able to set them in Logic under CC somehow.

    Can Cakewalk do this? (I was looking in key bindings as well but it doesn't seem to work)

    Any help appreciated, thanks! Jono


  5. Hi, I have no issue making MP3s from Cakewalk but my sister is trying it and getting a message about having to buy an encoder.

    Anybody know about this? Just wondering what to tell her.

    Thanks

  6. Hey there, just wondering, I notice after installing the latest Cakewalk update that adding nodes to an envelope seems different. You used to click on the envelope or node directly and now it seems you have to click underneath it? Why? Not sure why they change the simple things all the time... a little annoying to long-time users... 

    Perhaps it's just me though, anyone else notice this?

    Thanks

    I agree. Setting them to the same number in the options should match the levels. I seriously doubt too many people have even noticed it though, so I'd understand if it didn't exactly become a priority on the "to-do" list.

    Indeed. I suggested just adding a checkbox for "accent beat one" on the feedback site...

    Cheers


  8. Yes, a million workarounds we all know and love.

    The point is they should fix it. If the first and remaining clicks are set to same volume, they should be the same volume. End of story.

    Cakewalk have issues that have been ignored for decades. I know cause I've been working around them for decades. 

    Anyhow, thanks

  9. I'm using audio snap on a jazz band to fix a tempo screw up that would otherwise make the track unusable.  

    First I set project tempo from clip, then I choose clip follows project and create a tempo map to fix the issue. I bounce it using the Radius mix algorithm. All good.

    My question:

    - I'm doing this to the stereo mix rather than on the individual tracks. Is there any benefit to doing it to the individual tracks and using different algorithms?

    - Lastly, and most important to me: I rendered a version that I had created a fairly detailed tempo map and a version that just had one linear tempo slope from the start of the track to around the middle of the tune. The track with the single tempo line-drawn slope sounded almost undetectable, very clean. The other one with a more complex tempo map didn't sound so hot. I imagine the linear slope has even more tempo changes though, why would it sound so much better than the detailed tempo mapped version? Is it because it's linear and has no jumps in it? (Even though they're just slight jumps...) 

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated!

    Thanks. Jono

     

     

     


  10. There should be a checkbox for "don't accent bar" in the metronome settings. Or at the very least, if the user sets the same sound AND level for both first beat and other beats for their metronome, it should not accent each bar (It does).

    Sometimes you have multiple time signatures happening and you don't want any particular accent in the metronome to confuse someone who is playing the odd time sig.

    Never tried doing this before, but this worked for me...

    That's a good idea, thanks. I think I did that once years ago if I remember. So, I guess it's just the way it is, in terms of cakewalk always accenting the click? 


  12. Hi I'm trying to get the metronome in Cakewalk to not accent beat one all the time.

    I have beat one and other beats set to same sound and same level , yet it still plays an accent on beat one...

    Is there a trick for this? Someone surely would have asked for this I would think.

    (The song I'm working on has multi meters so I don't want an accent. I realize I can create a midi sound but wondered if the metronome would just act the way it's set up...)

    The main question here is, why doesn't cakewalk follow the metronome settings properly?

    Thanks

    It seems that this is wanted behavior. When a plugin is selected in the FX bin (you can see small angles around the plugin square box), then it has the focus/priority for key actions. If you want the selected clip gain focus again, then you have to click on the clip again (the plugin loses the focus then). After that the key input goes to the clip.

    A lot of such misunderstandings with CbB/Sonar's focus handling happen when you begin working with it. I just remember how I struggled years ago when I started to work with Sonar. It took me years to come used to the focus handling, but today I see some of the advantages with this implementation! 😄

    In CbB/Sonar selected is not always equal to focused!

    You're right! Crazy, I never knew that. Thanks

     


  14. Hey there, meant to post something about this earlier: Wondering if anyone else has noticed a certain bug in Cakewalk>>>

    You make some changes to a plugin, then go and click on a clip you don't want and hit the delete button, it doesn't delete, you keep trying, it doesn't delete, but then you notice the plugins in the effects bin are deleting one by one. You can't even use your delete key to remove a plugin!!! But it is deleting effects! What the heck is happening there? 

    It doesn't happen much, but I've noticed it for a while now. Very strange...

    Cheers
