  1. All worked as expected, but no update as already on the latest version . My 2 cents would be: Include the reference guide as an add on Show add-ons that are already installed Show installed add-ons that have an update available (e.g. reference guide would go out of date over time)
  2. In my experience, using a loopback device as the midi input to a track which has input echo on causes no end of problems - there's definitely a bug with the way virtual midi ports are being enumerated. This causes midi inputs to be re-assigned in projects whenever the physical midi devices connected to the system changes (regardless of whether they are selected as midi inputs in the preferences tab) Bit of a long thread due to the examples, but it's conclusive that the bug is specific to virtual midi ports, and not physical midi ports Midi Inputs - Please Help! - Cakewalk by BandLab - Cakewalk Discuss | The Official Cakewalk by BandLab Forum Would be great if there was an easy built in way to send midi to multiple tracks, if just to avoid use of loopback software
  3. That is actually pretty genius scook, thanks for sharing! A really elegant solution
  4. @msmcleodGreat to see some fixes coming in on Midi input problems! If you're looking at the code for this, can you take a look at the bugs I reported when virtual midi devices are being used: Inputs from virtual midi devices are being changed on project open after a new physical midi controller is connected to the PC (even though the new device is not even checked as an input / output in the midi preferences box) 'Manage Presets' for Midi Inputs functionality has erratic behaviour Midi Inputs - Please Help!
  5. Cheers guys, the API looks interesting and started me wondering if I could write a small app to expose the controls I need via OSC (which can be sent from my setlist manager)... but it looks like AZController may have that covered! Will have a dig in over the weekend and see how I get on Thanks again for all your help!
  6. Thanks so much Bassman, that's pretty much exactly what I was looking to do.. and including a preset for AZController is great! Sorry for the late reply, my band performed our first post pandemic gig yesterday - good times! Lots of people commented how good it was to be able to see live music again. I'm wondering how AZController achieves it's integration, it seems to have pretty deep control over Cakewalk, so perhaps there an API available somewhere? My setlist manager has a scripting engine, so it might be possible to do this directly, and avoid another piece of software running on my live rig.
  7. The 'External' input will be from a setlist manager app, so basically I'm looking to send a message from the setlist app to move to a particular Now time in Bandlab. The 'Goto' command will allow me to type a bar number to go to, but I don't want to be typing in bar numbers - the external command needs to specify the bar number to move to. If I can control the Now time via an external controller, as you suggest, then this would be a great starting point - can you give a bit more detail please? Thanks, Matt
  8. Yes, sorry for not being clearer! That is definitely some lateral thinking! I hadn't really thought about using CAL - although the fact it's sort of deprecated and isn't always available to run is a downside Thanks for a great suggestion. It's a shame there isn't some sort of documented API for Cakewalk, or another way though.
  9. Using Arranger View to move sections around deletes the first tempo node in the tempo view
  10. An Unusual request perhaps - does anyone know of a way to send a command from an external device to CBB to move the timeline to a particular position? Similar to a Song Position Pointer MIDI message I guess, but I'm not having any luck in getting CBB to respond to those.. TIA
  11. In build 155, if I connected a piece of audio equipment with an audio/midi interface then I get the usual dialog If I clicked 'Yes' then cakewalk crashes Crash is always related to module RPCRT4.dll, regardless of equipment connected This seems to be resolved in build 170, I guess due to the less strict error capture? Just providing for info really, as it's an edge case and is suppressed in RC1 - might be of interest as crash seems related to a windows system dll. Using Windows 10 Pro, build 20H2 _05172021_081805.dmp
  12. Thanks scook! Will use that going forward
  13. Gifs are perfect as they are optimised for size, and having video is sometimes so much easier than describing. It's just weird that they get inflated by so much when you upload one - like it's being converted to a video format or something. I tend to used ScreenToGif - free and does everything you could need. Have just created and linked a gif on imgur, works ok, but not as immediate as having the gif displaying inside the post - as you have to click through on the link
  14. Hi, anyone know what I'm doing wrong or if there's a workaround? If I insert small gif in a post , say around ~250KB, it gets stored as a 5MB file in the forum I've added a few Gifs in the past and not realised this was happening, and now I'm at my limit for attachments 😞 Don't really want to start deleting old Gifs, as it makes old posts non readable.
  15. Not sure if this is intended behaviour, but seems a bit weird? If I've set some tracks to view automation, rather than clips, then I insert a new instrument, the tracks all get sat back to viewing clips? Before inserting instrument After inserting a new instrument track - the tracks all get set to clip view? Is this intended? I'm currently using Cakewalk 2021.04 Early Access 2, but think this behaviour has probably existed before https://imgur.com/a/0rrbyyi
