    When Using as controller:
    (PLAY, STOP) A-Pro Hardaware "ACT" button on = ?

    For your case A-Pro Controller will not work.
    It provides only the automation of the console, tracks, synthesizer and effects that are written in it.
    I couldn't fix it )))

    Everything worked for me (for your case) only when nothing is included in the control surface.
    Otherwise, the parameters will be duplicated (with A-Pro Controller).
    And I turned "ACT" button off.

    Try to do the same by removing the controller from the control surface

    I also own a Roland A300 😅
    For example, I'm using an electric piano, but your synthesizer should work from the same principle.

    1. You should check your A300 connection settings in control surface.


    2. Then you need to go into the Remote Control module, press the Learn and turn the Rotary Knob 9 at the same time. After that, press OK


    Everything should work!

  3. Many DAWs (Cubase, Ableton, Studio One, Reaper, Bitwig) have convenient functions for working with midi and envelopes from the computer keyboard or a laptop.

    Many tasks can be implemented from the keyboard (via hot keys), and not just with the mouse.

    Those who have experience with these DAWs understand what I mean.
    I don't write orchestral music 😅 but already at this stage I am faced with the fact that I have to make a lot of mouse movements to edit midi and envelopes. And it really slows down the workflow.

    Editing the piano part in the new composition took me a very long time 🙄

    I propose to discuss and implement several features.

    1. Working with the notes by keyboard in the Piano Roll.

    Switch to editing the next or previous note in the Piano Roll. Lengthen or shorten a note. Combining groups of notes and working with them from the keyboard.
    There are no such functions in CakeWalk.
    You have to make a lot of mouse movements and spend a lot of time working with the midi part.

    2. Working with envelopes with the keyboard

    Working with envelopes in Cakewalk is also available only with the mouse, although it would be extremely convenient to mark points and then work with these envelopes from the keyboard (raise, lower, move right or left).
    Here, too, you have to make a lot of mouse movements and spend a lot of time working with automation.

    I don't want to use other DAWs, so I want my favorite program to become better and more convenient! 🔥

    Dear developers! Can these additions be planned for future releases?

    Dear colleagues, I ask you to support my proposals so that it can enter the next releases!

    Hi Asato

    I had a listen, it was pleasant enough but i did think far too long.

    Perhaps a little editing might help

    I do think this could be pretty good apart from the length



    Hello, Nigel!

    It's an ambient composition, I think 😅

    I wanted to immerse the listener in a special meditative mood.

    But I understand what do you mean!

    Thank you for the listening!

    Might be better if you post the song somewhere where the listener doesn't have to have an account or post it on Bandlab  where I think everyone here has an account.


    Bjorn, thank you for the feedback! It's a very good idea to post on Bandlab! Have a good day

  6. Connect Yourself to the Universe

    Connect yourself to the Universe.jpg

    I remember the first time I really felt music.

    I was about 15 years old, and it was Kitaro, whose album I heard at a relaxation session.
    Imagine you are sitting in a large armchair, wrapped in a blanket. Twilight, burning aroma lamp. Thoughts go somewhere.
    And at some point, music begins to sound, filling the entire space.

    It was just an incredible feeling! Music immersed and carried away! I was focused on my feelings here-and-now, and on the music.

    After that, I told myself that I want to create the same kind of music!

    The same did not work, but it turned out to create another 🥰
    At the moment I have released 4 albums, but all these years I tried to find my style, trying electronic rock, the Berlin school of electronics, ethnic, new age, meditative music and ambient.

    And I feel that my style is gradually emerging from release to release.

    Lately, I've been wanting to listen to concentrated, spiritual music more and more. And to create music for conscious listening. Music that gives a deep feeling of unity with the world, the cosmos, in which we are just wanderers who have come to this planet in bodily form.

    Behind a series of vain events and thoughts, we only sometimes remember our true state and purpose. And this composition - for myself - is a reminder of my own destiny and connection with the source of all that exists.

    I shared this composition with some of my listeners.

    Here is what they write:

    ✔I associate this track with Solaris. I would make it a soundtrack))) probably with something like that you can get in touch with the thinking ocean and plunge into the deep unconscious, as Kelvin did)

    ✔I liked the combinations of low small "grunting" drones and high-frequency ringing bell sorties - this is, exactly, somehow, "universally" - the whole spectrum of sounds, pulsations, echoes, echoes. The drums do not thump throughout the entire track, but neatly appear out of nowhere and slowly fade away, like extinct stars...then they gradually revive...the high, protruding bongs at the beginning were a little strained, but, according to the idea, they are, I think, appropriate (as intro)-type from the earthly everyday life to the connection with infinity.

    ✔ Very beautiful, smooth, harmonious. I imagine a person rising to the heavens, and towards him the Universe holds out a blue luminous ball to him - “everything is in your hands”

    ✔This track has a special melody. It seems to be inconvenient, as the classical understanding of melody seems to be violated. But after a while, it begins to seem that the music seems to be from a parallel dimension, or that the tops of the mountains, or the soles of the clouds, or the roots of trees sound exactly like that - something that cannot sound.

    What did you feel after listening?

    Share your feelings

    Check the release notes regarding MMCSS settings.  For optimal performance, it's important that BOTH your driver and Cakewalk are running in MMCSS mode.  It should be down to your ASIO driver to set MMCSS mode, but some don't.  Cakewalk can set it on the driver's behalf you have the option checked in preferences, however be aware that some drivers may crash if they've already set it to MMCSS mode and Cakewalk then tries to set it again.

    If neither the driver or Cakewalk are running in MMCSS, you'll experience less than optimal performance; if only one is set to MMCSS, then this could explain your crashes.

    This is a screenshot of my system audio settings. The current version of the Cakewalk is


  8. Colleagues, I'm upset. 

    Cakewalk after the update began to crash. It works, and then the program suddenly close. Moreover, when working with ordinary projects, not the most loaded soft synthesizers.

    I also noticed a high CPU load (I'm using VST synthesizers) at the time of project playback. And the sound starts to "stutter".
    If earlier the audio engine just crashed under load, now the whole program crashes.

    By the way, I made the same project with the same plugins in Studio One. The system shows the load on the processor in Cakewalk 1.5-2 times more.

    1. Yup. But that means Cakewalk can be in the short list of pioneers. It was with ARA, even so there was practically one plug-in for it.

    2. So what? Is Bitwig evil? The standard is open and not owned by any company (unlike all currently "common" formats).

    3. you know that new developers are not allowed to write VST2. And VST3 has many problems (along with the fact the owner can declare it "obsolete" any time, and unlike with VST2 even currently developers will have to abandon it in flavor of whatever creature Steinberg declare as "the new one"). Right?

    For long time no-one could see "the point" in e-cars. And then.... ups...

    Also Cakewalk's DX driven MIDI engine has to be replaces. VST2 is obsolete. VST3 doesn't really support MIDI. So, why not target CLAP there?

    Thank you for this message!

    As a product manager, I understand that in every killer feature there must be value and a solution to the pain of a large number of users of the product.

    Or such a decision should be consistent with a long-term product development strategy.
    I have tried discussing Cakewalk's SMM strategy on this forum here, but to no avail.

    In general, CLAP is not as clear to me as it is to you.
    You can try making a post about the value of CLAP for Cakewalk by BandLab and tag the developers.

    What do you think about it?

  10. The development of a new feature should solve some problem for a large number of users, or bring new value to them.
    Given that:
    1. There are practically no applications on the market
    2. They are co-developed with Bitwig
    3. 99% of any applications can be found in VST 2 and VST3 - there is no special need for it
    At least for myself, I don’t see the point in CLAP.

    Wow the mood this creates is like an uplifting and mysterious journey!  I especially like the chord progression.  The effects and melodic bits are very nice!  

    Watch for my new song/video later today- "Secret Places"

    I wanted to create just such a mystical mood: night, campfire, shamanic throat singing...
    I'm very glad you liked it!

  12. Easy, beautiful, gentle composition! The video corresponds very much to the music!
    The only point is that the bass guitar can be directly accentuated. You can almost not hear it.
    Thank you for the music! 🙌

    I think you hit the mood of the mountains here. Never heard throat singing in a production before.  
    Omnisphere has a collection of Tuvan throat singers patches that I might have to use after listening to this.
    A couple of minor nits. The intro arps might be a little too long and the transition effect could be more subtle.
    Other than that, very nice indeed. Enjoyed it.

    Hi, Bjorn!

    Thank you for such a professional review!
    Very glad I was able to get into the mood of the mountains.
    I can agree about the remarks about the length of the opening arpeggiators and more subtle transition effects.
    I'm not a professional musician, and I'm still learning. Including, after listeners feedback also.

    I'd love your feedback on my other compositions as well 🙏

    Here they are:

    I agree with Mark and Wookie - this is extremely well done and a very enjoyable listen



    Thank you from the bottom of my heart! Your feedback is very valuable to me 🙌
    Words like yours help me creat music.
    Wish you all the best!

    Again reminiscent of TD and Klaus Schulze in the use of Sequencing, mix sound well balanced with distinction in the voicing.

    Thank you very much for the flattering comparison!
    I am also a fan of early TD and Klaus Schulz.
    And I love ethnic music.

    When adding an automation lane, a node is always inserted at the beginning of the project and at the end of the project.  This is to ensure you have a correct "line" of automation to work with.  AFAIK, this has been the behaviour of automation lanes since they were introduced back in pre-SONAR days.

    It looks like at some point, you've shortened your project length, either that, or you've lengthened it in such a way that everything has been pushed later in the timeline.

    You don't need to spend 10-15 minutes to remove these... just engage Ripple Edit All, select everything from the end of your project (as you see it), to the actual end of the project, and hit the Del key.

     I did everything as you described. Nothing happens and nothing is deleted (((
