  1. Hello. Again I have the same problem with the automation curves when using fast rendering of my music. When I try to output my music as MP3, Cakewalk lowers my expression automation line to zero and messes up two other parameters making them orphan. I have a feeling that this is going to be difficult to fix, but I send you my saved file with and without the bug, hoping that you will find the solution. Cordially. Without Bugs.cwb With Bugs.cwb Without Bugs.mp3 With Bugs.mp3
  2. Heeeeeeeeelp, I'm on the verge of hanging myself! I don't know if it's my machine or if it's Cakewalk, but for a while now I have encountered big bugs in the automation curves. I was doing a brass track and I was starting to draw a CC expression curve directly from the clips menu. At one point I clicked to make a right angle and there the program took me out of the track. When I wanted to come back to it via clips, the program tells me that there is already an expression track, without however being able to access it. I tried to make it appear via the automation lines button, but that created a lot of automation lines except the one I had already drawn beforehand. Before that on another project, I encountered the same kind of madness, except that this time I had created several automation tracks, whose content no longer appeared in the "automation lines" view. I'm not also going to tell all my stories of buggy or orphaned curves ... but you just have to remember that there is really something wrong on this side. Here is my brass file, hoping you will find where the problem comes from. I will try to reproduce the first problem I encountered, to also send you the file. In The Stone.cwb
  3. Thanks guy (or girl, who know)! 😅
  4. Thanks @Promidi but I know about it, and you will notice that my thread is almost 2 years old now. 😆 I am really happy that this feature has finally been implemented, thanks to the Bandlab team.
  5. Hello. I can't seem to put multiple articulations on different lines. For this to be possible, Do I have to create several groups of articulations of the same instrument?
  6. I just found out what would be a bug. I wanted to update one of my old compositions which has instruments separated into audio and midi tracks, and by combining them into a single instrument track I noticed that something was missing from this track. Indeed, when I wanted to add an automation on this track, I did not find in the list the parameters of the instrument, but only the basic midi parameters (expression, volume, pan ...). Is this really a bug or would there be a trick to make my instrument's automation options reappear?
  7. The issue I reported in the 2020.08 Feedback topic is still present. I activated the keyboard at the top of the window as recommended to take control of the Reason Rack and be able to write, but it's still the Cakewalk keyboard shortcuts that have the hand. I did a test with Kontakt, and there I had no problems, I can write, but it's strange because with or without the keyboard icon activated, I can still write. In short, there is a problem on my machine between the VST Reason Rack and Cakewalk.
  8. Cakewalk developers are gradually optimizing the DAW workflow. We can now assign all the outputs of a VSTI to several instrument tracks, and therefore put several audio effects on them. Everything is now clear and combined, audio, midi and effects in one track ... except the midi effects. I had already made the request before and therefore I join frankly the point of view of @Matthew Carr, it is necessary to continue in this perspective of combination, a track to control everything rather than being lost in the menus.
  9. I have a problem with Cakewalk and a plugin (not sure if there may be a similar problem with other plugins). I use an instrument in the VST Reason Rack, so that certain parameters communicate with CWB, I have to put it in a "combinator" where I can manage the controllers to be linked to my instrument and controlled by Cakewalk (OMG, no $&€%@" midi learn !!?). To see clearly in the Combinator interface, I can name the rotary and the buttons, but the problem is that despite being in a window detached from Cakewalk, every time I try to type a letter, it is the CWB keyboard shortcuts that take priority over the Reason Rack, so I am manipulating the DAW in the background and therefore cannot write.
  10. Hello ! I don't know if this problem has been reported here, and if so I apologize, but I don't have time to read the 7 pages of this topic, knowing moreover that I am not very good in english (thanks google translate). So here is my problem: On a project I'm working on, every time I try to turn the music into mp3 via the quick exporter, it sets all my controllers to zero (control via automation curves), and Cakewalk no longer recognizes them when I replay my song from the beginning, until I enter each track to handle them. Listening to the mp3 create, I notice Cakewalk recorded it with the problem included. I will try it with the file menu exporter to see if it can work. Edit : The file menu exporter works fine, so the problem is with the quick version of the program. I would like to add a suggestion for something that is not a bug, but is annoying. You have updated the instrument tracks by allowing the use of Midi automations, but it would also be useful to have the possibility of including the Midi plugins in these tracks as easily as an audio plugin, all side by side. For the moment we are obliged to enter the track parameters to put a Midi plugin or to divide the instrument track to be able to put a Midi plugin directly. In short, it's boring especially if you want to copy a midi plugin on several tracks.
  11. I already made the request on the forum, and it is the only thing which could make me quit Cakewalk, because the instruments based on keyswitchs are often used. I think we should move this post (or another on the subject) to the top of the list as often as possible, so that it is visible by the developers and so that they understand that it is an essential option for a Modern DAW. Cakewalk was a DAW ahead of its time, but since its fall and the takeover by Bandlab, I feel like it's stagnating. Of course I thank Bandlab for saving my program from disappearance and updating it against bugs and other things. But my feeling about the options they're adding here and there, while welcome, is that they don't revolutionize the way we work either. We need new options to work with our new tools (Keyswitch manager, MPE, midi 2.0, NKS compatible, vector interface ... (bring me back Studioware 😢)). I would be willing to pay to have my DAW really up to date technologically.
  12. Like you, I envy the other DAWs and wait for the developers of Bandlab to give us the gift of implementing an Expression Map like. It is also one of the elements that could make me leave Cakewalk after decades of loyalty. Especially since now Studio One also has a keyswitch manager, like Cubase (of course), FL Studio, Reaper, Logic ... While waiting for the Bandlab team to reward us with such a tool, there is the drum map solution, which for my taste is quite constraining: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eSMtr5u1KpM
  13. Hello. My dedicated graphic card recently stopped working properly and I had to fall back on the GPU included with my processor (core i7 4790k). The problem is that every time I exit Cakewalk while playing to go to a web page (for example) I hear crackling noises, as if every action I do in the image affects the sound. I told myself that my CPU / GPU has trouble managing the image and calculating the VSTI and DTD at the same time. But when my computer goes to sleep mode and I turn it back on, I have a message from Cakewalk saying that the Intel audio / midi device has been disconnected, and that it wants to route the outputs bla bla bla ... I do not understand why it speaks to me of Intel audio / midi when Cakewalk is fully configured on my dedicated sound interface (Motu 828 mk3)? So how do I make Cakewalk stop interacting with the Intel audio / midi device (my CPU / GPU) when it is not activated in the settings? Best regards.
  14. Hello As said in another post, believing that my audio interface was not working (motu 828 mk3), I was making sound with the internal card of my motherboard and asio4all. But I discovered that the problem came from Something else, so I put my Motu back in function, but now I'm having a new problem. I try to configure my machine (core I7 4790k, 16gb of ram) and my interface with Cakewalk, but it's hard for me to have a clean sound without parasites. The only times I get a correct sound is when I has turn off the management of multi core. I do not understand, I feel that everything worked better with the sound of the motherboard than my professional interface. Does this come from the Motu or is my core I7 no longer able to make Cakewalk work properly, or is this Cakewalk itself? I don't know what to do, I think it's Cakewalk the culprit and I'm about to quit the adventure with this DAW that I use for decades, so please prove me that I'm wrong and reconcile me with my DAW. Best regards.
  15. Thank you for your clear and precise answer Scook. Effectively putting the Non-Linear option solves the problem for LP-EQ. But what should I do if I don't have that kind of option in a plugin like for Vocal Doubler for example? And why is the problem there, even on tracks not affected by the plugin?
  16. Hello! For years I thought that my audio interface Motu 828 mk3 no longer worked, while it was my microphone that was dead. Today I try to put my home studio back on, integrating my two old external synths through Cakewalk and my Motu. So I clicked input echo to be able to apply the Cakewalk plugins in real time on my external synths, I lowered the latency in the asio drivers, and I muted the inputs on the interface so as not to have some kind of chorus effect. Everything worked well until I added some plugins like Izotope Vocal Doubler, or the Cakewalk L-Phase EQ (LP-EQ). I don't know why, but its two plugins (and probably others) generate a monstrous latency on the input echo tracks, even if they are not on the tracks in question. Is there a solution to the problem or is it a Cakewalk bug? Another problem, it seems that in the project settings I can not put the clock on internal, obviously the option comes back every time on the audio clock.
  17. I know it's really too late to ask this question, especially as the CAL/Studioware has been abandoned for a long time ago, but I don't understand why it all remains hidden if it's functional? It's just a line in the menus, why not hand over the Studioware editor to those to whom it's useful?
  18. How do you created custom Studioware Panels when they are not accessible?
  19. As mentioned above, if I did not opt for the Midiquest solution, it is because I find that the software is far too expensive for the poor person That I am (399$). But it is true that it seems to be a powerful tool and I admit to being charmed by the vst option. It must be cool to control the hardware via a plugin as if it were a vsti, and with an interface more user-friendly than the small LCD screens of my machines.
  20. I know there was the ability to program CAL scripts to do complex things Cakewalk and in Studioware panels, but maybe a simplified version of the tool like FX Chain could be done, no?
  21. I'm obviously very late on the new (not really new) of the end of Studioware panels. It's a shame because it was a really good idea for those like me who have external devices and who would have wanted to control them other than by their small screens. I resucite my old synth (JV1080 and MU100R) set aside for a while and these panels would have helped me. I had thought at one time that the fx chain were a new version of studioware, but obviously I was wrong. There are solutions like Midiquest or Ctrlr, but Midiquest is in my opinion too expensive, and Ctrlr which is free, I did not have to operate it on Cakewalk. Too bad for this step back, but if this tool exists somewhere in the bowels of Cakewalk, why not revive it and update it?
  22. Hello ! I've been on Cakewalk since the days of Cakewalk Express and then Cakewalk Pro Audio 6, and I see that an interesting option of the program has disappeared. Studioware panels were the ability to create on-screen interfaces to control some external MIDI devices. You could put graphic elements, textures, create buttons, knobs ... and attribute them to what we wanted. It seems that this option is hidden in the Bandlab version of Cakewalk, so that in "preferences/folder locations" there is always talk of Studioware panels. It would be cool if Bandlab unlocked this option which was to my liking a good idea.
  23. Hello. I much prefer to use the bézier curves for midi controllers rather than drawn it in classic way. Because it's easier to have a fluid shape compared to drawing by hand with a mouse. Besides it's a bit confusing and I do not understand why there are still the two methods in Sonar (...oops Cakewalk 😁), knowing that for those who prefer hand drawing it is always possible to do so with the bézier. The problem with the midi béziers in Cakewalk is that they don't seem to act as precisely as in classic mode, it's hard to play in real time. There is a latency who often, when I play my music from the middle some controllers do not follow, it's realy frustrating and I have to go back a little bit to take them into account and play it properly. When I make a rendering of the sound in mp3, there also sometimes some controllers who play badly, and I have to make an advanced conversion by unchecking the quick conversion to make it work. If I want to convert my music to .mid, then the controllers are simply not applied. In short there are a lot of problems with the midi beziers, and it would be cool if the developers could take a look at it. Thank you in advance.
  24. There is a work around, but it look tedious and claims to use 2 tracks for 1 instrument :
  25. I asked in the Instruments & Effects section If there was a keyswitch management system in cakewalk like on Cubase? Obviously no, so it would be a great help and a considerable time saver, seen the ton of virtual instruments based on the keyswitch that exist, to have this kind of option.
