    automated bus mute?

    Thanks, I'll give that a go. Yes, don't know why I didn't think of using an Aux track! Problem solved, many thanks...

    automated bus mute?

    Hi Friends, I've hit a little snag in my current project. I have some lead vocal layer tracks routed to a bus, which I want to bring in and out as required. I wanted to automate this, so went to the bus automation options and...no automated mute. Oh! I can automate each track of course, but that's a lot of work. Am I missing something - surely muting buses within a mix is a common requirement? Please help if you know what I'm doing wrong, or can suggest a suitable alternative. Thanks, Dave

    I didn't know that either, thanks! You guys must think I'm dumb as an ox...😀

    Pause function

    Hi Friends, I don't have an external controller, so I usually use the computer keyboard for transport controls (i.e. stop and start with the spacebar) . My question is: is there a similar shortcut for PAUSE? I looked in the online manual but it didn't offer any alternative to the transport section within CbB (for the pause function). Anyone aware of an alternative? Thanks Dave

    Midi editor piano roll view

    Hey Everyone, Thanks very much for your help. After buying a USB extension, I've decided to follow bdickens' advice and leave the external synths permanently connected! As you may imagine that solved the issue.👍 Can I just take this opportunity to thank you all for being so sharing with your knowledge - this really is an excellent Forum with some really great people.

    Midi editor piano roll view

    Ah thanks, I thought that must be what was happening. Glad to know it isn't just me being dumb (for a change!)

    Midi editor piano roll view

    Obviously not, even CbB isn't that clever!😁 No, but I think that other new MIDI tracks should not have to be automatically treated by Cakewalk as drum MIDI tracks - and that's what I was getting at. I want to write the MIDI before connecting a synth, which seems a reasonable thing to do. Once it's done I can connect up, check it works, make any tweaks and then track. That's how I used to do it back in the day with an external sequencer. Anyway, if it can't be done no problem - I just wanted to ask in case it's a question of my ignorance. Thanks for trying to help my friend! Dave

    Midi editor piano roll view

    Hi bdickens, I don't have the external synth connected at present, I only connect it for tracking to save having trailing leads across the room. Basically, I think CbB defaults to whatever MIDI device it can see connected (in this case BFD3 drums is the only thing), and I'm asking if there is a way to override this on any other MIDI tracks that I add. Obviously I already have a MIDI track for the drums. I'm pretty sure that if I were to add TTS-1 or similar I would have the option, as I could then set the MIDI channel output to it. I can live with the workaround, I just wanted to see if there was an easier way to do it. Thanks, Dave

    Midi editor piano roll view

    Hi Friends, A quick question about the piano roll view: In my current project I already have some audio tracks and have BFD3 drums. I am trying to write some MIDI for an external synth, but the midi editor seems to be defaulting to a drum map rather than piano roll, which is obviously no use to me. I don't have any soft synth in the project. I also note that the channel midi output options are only BFD. As a workaround I opened a new project, inserted a midi track and that defaulted to the normal piano roll, so I was able to continue. Once I have the MIDI track completed I intend to import into the original project and assign to external synth. So my question is can I force piano roll in a MIDI track? I tried all the obvious menu options but was unsuccessful. Dave

    CbB not finding new USB device

    Thank you, I did not know that.

    CbB not finding new USB device

    Thanks John! The setup appears to be working so far, but I haven't done any tracking yet so fingers crossed. I freely admit that I don't really understand all these drivers and protocols, but I'm glad that people like yourself do and are prepared to help out. Have a good one... Dave

    CbB not finding new USB device

    I agree with you wholeheartedly - I'm an engineer. But I also believe in asking for help when I need it, especially in areas outside of my field of expertise...
