    How to combine best takes into 1 track?

    You have to highlight all of the tracks you’re wanting to bounce to track. It will work when done properly.

    Bounce to track can already do this

    How to combine best takes into 1 track?

    +1 Another way is to highlight the tracks and do a bounce to track (which can be a new track or an already created one). I would probably hold shift and drag (or cntrl shift drag to copy) the clips to separate take lanes of one track like @msmcleod suggested. Then you can even bounce to clip to combine if your edits are good. Or if you drag copy them, you can archive and hide the originals for safe keeping. I’m a take hoarder. 😄 There is no wrong way to eat a reese’s though! ✌️

    Toontrack drum maps

    With Superior Drummer I like mapping within their software. You can really tweak the velocity layers to react how you want. (Nodes like automation for amazing customizations) Really easy to setup (click then hit a pad or drum) and save presets. I already had my acoustic/electronic hybrid kit’s trigger converters (3 TMC-6’s) setup for Native Instruments (Studio drummer and Abbey road series). To make life easy I made my Superior Drummer preset with my NI presets selected at the trigger converter so If I can easily re-trigger using NI or Superior without changing anything except calling up my map preset inside Superior drummer 3.

    Wierd Splap Back on Vox

    I personally like to disable "input echo" on the track I'm recording and monitor the direct signal from the Audio Interface control panel. This way my latency settings are not affecting the actual direct signal that I'm monitoring coming in. You don't wanna hear both. Either monitor in Cakewalk OR the audio interface control panel, just not both together. Either disable input echo or pull the direct signal fader down in the interface. You might have another track with that same input with Input Echo On as well. You might disable all track Input Echo from the control bar.

    Windows updates & game mode

    Checked mine and I’m on Win 10 Ver 1903 but it does say there is a feature update. I’m guessing that it will turn game mode on... Currently game mode is off. Not a fan of Win 10 update practices. I had uninstalled Catalyst Control Center and cleaned in safe mode only to find 2 days later Windows had reinstalled it. I’ve since unchecked the box for other drivers besides Windows. Fun stuff! 😄 Thanks for the heads up! 👍

    2019.07 Feature Overview

    It’s not allowing me to set the position and select the clip at the same time during playback with Comp enabled on the smart tool. I can select a clip but playback won’t start where I click. I can click the middle of the clip which will start playback at that position but won’t select (isolate) that clip. It will select the clip and playback from the clip beginning If I Shift Select. It will select the clip and move the playhead there when the song is stopped., I need it to select the clip I click on and playback from where I’ve clicked. What I’m used to is pre-slicing the phrases of the takes I’m comping. Then during playback I’m selecting each take one at a time till I decide what’s best. Then clicking and listening to the next phrase and so forth. Previously, while comping, selecting a take during playback would play everything from the start of that clip. So now to do this I’m having to hold Shift then select. I would at least like to not have to hold shift to accomplish this like before (Tablet pen in right hand selecting listening and choosing while the left hand holds the frosted fudge little debbies) . But a step further would be to allow both the selection of the clip and setting the playback while comping when that setting is set. It’s a small thing but definitely noticed the change. I really appreciate all of the hard work going into Cakewalk and don’t want any of my small nags to over shadow all of the Greatness that’s being done. Loving all of the new features as well as the squashing of old and new bugs! I didn’t mean to nag at the bottom of an announcement thread Sorry! ✌️

    2019.07 Feature Overview

    I think the part throwing me is having to hold Shift where as before it was simply Clicking while comping both selected the clip and played it from the start of the clip. I don’t want to have to hold shift the entire time I’m comping. The more I can do one handed with my graphics tablet pen the better. I would prefer comp mode to allow for selecting the clip as well as playing from the point of selection (when set during playback is selected) , all the while not having to press shift.

    2019.07 Feature Overview

    One small issue, in comping mode even with Set during playback I have to hold shift when clicking a take lane to get the newly chosen clip to play. With Comp disabled from the smart tool It’ll play where ever I click. With comp mode enabled it will let me click the middle of the clip to play from there without selecting it. I personally liked clicking the comp to choose and have it playback instantly without having to hold shift. I does work to hit stop first then select and hit play. I wanna here the newly chosen clip to play instantly from the place of the clip where I clicked it. Holding shift plays it from it’s beginning. Slows me down when comping. 🤔

  12. Have you tried unchecking ‘plugin load balancing’ in Preferences, Audio, Playback and Recording? I’ve had issues with certain plugins generating noise in places where there aren’t any clips with load balancing checked. Works fine while the clips were playing. Unchecking fixed it for me. J/c

    How to assign mod wheel & expression pedal

    You can assign your expression pedal to send any CC you want via your keyboard. CC11 expression, CC1 Mod, CC7 Vol, etc I didn’t mean to sound like you shouldn't use the expression pedal to control the leslie. I meant for you to not use the CC11 as you may want to use that for swell, assigning your expression pedal to say CC1. Again there’s no wrong way. Plenty of freely assignable CCs to go around. Whatever CC you use you can assign in your Hammond VST. Which Hammond VST are you using? Also, what model keyboard are you using? In my live rig I have one Expression pedal for CC11 (expression) and another Expression pedal for the Leslie control (via CC1). At home I have 3 Hammond Organs. I added a toe switch (still can use the half moon switch as well) to my 57 B3 for those moments I don’t wanna let go. 😀

    How to assign mod wheel & expression pedal

    You should be using expression to control the swell (volume) of the organ and instead use Mod for the leslie. I have a pedal in my live setup for Leslie control via Mod CC1. Also use it to soften the horns while on my piano/string/horns patch. Separate pedal for expression, then using sliders to attenuate volume CC7separate of the Expression pedal CC11. No wrong way but some ways can help the flow.

    How to assign mod wheel & expression pedal

    You’ll want to assign what the pedals are sending via your keyboard first. Sure, you can reassign but if you always want CC11 for expression from the pedal and CC1 for mod from the wheel then it’s best to do it at the source for consistency. Most companies use standard CCs so you don’t ‘have to’ use s learn functions or saving the odd or unassigned CCs for the things like all the other things you can use it for like delay feedback or hall level. You don’t want to loose functionality of one thing to gain another. I have multiple controller patches saved in the Master Keyboard which I change to match the setup. VSL, NI, EW. In East West you just load your patch and then right click any knob or fader and hit midi learn and then wiggle your midi controller. It will then learn whatever CC you previously told your keyboard to send when receiving your pedal or mod input. You didn’t mention what the keyboard is. Hope that helps! If not, type more. 😀 ✌️
