    Smooth out tempo map?

    Now say your reference track fluctuated and you had it mapped out already (by hand or melodyne) and you wanted to adjust for the fluctuations in the reference, you can enable Clip Follows Project on your reference track and then make adjustments to the tempo map by drawing or entering values while having your reference track follow your new changes. You can also then look at the tempo list in the tempo view and highlight and delete all but the first tempo and change that one to a new averaged amount if you prefer. Pretty easy to tame the fluctuations without killing them all together from the tempo view using the draw tool. Turn snap off for smoother tempo drawing . You can also use Fit to time to change the whole map (or parts even) up or down while preserving the tempo map’s variations.

    Smooth out tempo map?

    Yeah, just open up the tempo map view, make sure your click is on, zoom to an appropriate level and draw or redraw the parts that are off while listening to the click. I personally prefer to do my maps solely by hand just to make sure they’re correct. You can easily adjust your map though.

    Mono Plugins problem.

    Yeah if you change the interleave in the main track view you must toggle the bypass of that FX or FX bin (or just hit E twice) for the nodes to change. If the interleave is clicked on from the Inspector or the console view the change is instant. My issue is specific to Waves Mono/Stereo plugins though. They are designed to be used in either mono or stereo. The mono ones work fine and the stereo ones work fine. (The Stereo ones don’t mind their interleave being switched to mono either) The ones that say ‘Mono/Stereo’ eg Abbey Road Plates Mono/Stereo only function in Mono not allowing their interleave to be changed. The Waves PRS collection only has mono and mono/stereo version, no stereo ones. It would be nice if the mono/stereo one could function properly in stereo.

    Mono Plugins problem.

    It makes sense to me to NOT have the interleave linked to input. I might record a Mono guitar but want to process it with a Stereo Guitar plugin like Guitar Rig. Or a Mono vox track with a stereo doubler like ADT. Just because it’s mono in doesn’t mean I want mono out. This rationale makes sense to me.

    Mono Plugins problem.

    Yeah this doesn’t work, nor does Forcing Stereo operation. The double nodes never show in the FX bin. Thanks for your input put though! 👍 I believe this issue requires a fix on Cakewalk’s end.

    Mono Plugins problem.

    I have had issues with the mono/stereo plugins such as the PRS Mono/Stereo. Supposed to be able use them in mono or stereo but even with the interleave set to Stereo the plugin stays mono. The plugin works as expected in stand alone mode. There is no stereo version of the PRS, only mono or mono/stereo. I had started a thread but thought I’d bring it back up with this thread getting more traffic.

    Best RAM savers

    I prefer to Bounce to track (workflow reasons), then disconnect the synth via the synth rack. This saves RAM and CPU as well. You can always reconnect the synth via synth rack to rebounce a different part, section or mic position . The synth rack retains all patches while disconnected, so everything is still available, simply reconnect.

    Tranzport weirdness in Cakewalk by Bandlab

    Thanks for checking! I’m glad it’s reproducible. The more that report an issue the bigger the priority so anyone affected reporting could only help.

    Bouncing Synths

    You can either set up separate outputs from the single instance of Play which also requires adding Synth audio tracks assigned to each of the multi outs. This allows for freeze to make multi audio rendering. Easier way is to highlight (select) the source midi track of each part one at a time along with your main synth audio track and bounce the parts individually to their own audio track. (Bounce to track) Once bounced you can disconnect the synth (saving CPU) in the synth rack and it will retain all of your patches should you need to rebounce a part or even a single line of a part by shortening your selection. I’ve had issues in the past with un freeze not bringing back patch parts. Plus you can’t add layers to a frozen track. Plus if you had edited timing or crossfades and needed to change something, un-freeze wouldn't keep your edits. That’s my few cents. Peace!😀
  10. Hey all! I know we have lots of Frontier Design Tranzport users here so I wanted to see if anyone else was having the same issue I am with my trusty Tranzport. So I started notice that when Cakewalk is not in focus that my Tranzport will just freeze the display at the point that Cakewalk goes out of focus. Noticed after several times heading to the booth to lay down a bunch of percussion parts that the Tranzport display was stuck. The Tranzport still controls Cakewalk, but the display is frozen. First I started deleting it and adding it back in the ACT menu which made it work again, but it kept happening. Then, I noticed that sometimes it started working on it’s own again. So before heading to the booth I always mute the control room via the Focusrite mix control software so as not to have any bleed. Clicking outside of Cakewalk (mix control, task bar, second monitor) is causing the Tranzport display to freeze. Clicking in Cakewalk restores the display. Anyone else seeing this? I’m Win 10 I had already uninstalled and reinstalled before figuring out what was going on which sucked because it had to be installed via program compatibility helper set to Win 7. I double checked in Sonar X1 and Sonar Platinum and it worked regardless of the focus as expected. Any ideas or help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks!! 😁

    Stop click from 1st beat accent?

    Tested various levels of each with low ping as both 1st beat and other beats and these are my findings: 1st beat: 0 = +0.2 other beats: 0 =-2.7 1st beat: -1 = -0.8 other beats: -1 = -4.2 1st beat: -2 = -1.6 other beat: -2 = -5.4 1st beat -3 = -2.4 other beats -3 = -6.6 1st beat -4 = -3.4 other beats -4 = -8.1 1st beat -5 = -4.2 other beats -5 = -9.3 So yes this is not working as expected. I tested back to X1 with the same results. The volumes are different for each as well as their ranges when changed are different. Over the 5 db range the 1st accent had a range of 4.4 db (from -4.2 to +0.2) and over the same 5 db range the Other beats range was 6.6 db (-9.3 to -2.7) Definitely worth a fix! To achieve the same volume from the low ping you can set the 1st beat to -3 which will result in -2.4 db and the Other beats to +0.3 which will also result in -2.4 db.

    Transfer entire projet folder...

    You can always mount your old hard drive inside your new computer and save the digital transfer time. Also, If you have a project from 8.5 that you want to work on in Cakewalk by Bandlab, make a copy of the project file (right click the project file, copy, paste) and rename ‘project name - Cakewalk’ that way you still have the 8.5 version intact should the transfer not work perfectly or for a reference or older plugin settings etc.

    Is there any way to import midi data into a different DAW?

    Yeah I was running stand alone mode when I tested it. Definitely the patch.

    Is there any way to import midi data into a different DAW?

    Another way to export a midi clip is to right click it and Enable Groove Clip Looping. Then highlight the clip and go to File, Export and then select Midi Groove Clip. That will export the clip as a Type 1 Groove clip. You can always turn Groove Clip Looping on or off.

    Audio Slurring after Freeze using AudioSnap

    Radius Solo is used for monophonic sources. Occasionally it’s wonky even on monophonic stuff. So if your guitar has more than one note at a time you’ll need to use one of the polyphonic algorithms.. For me, Radius Mix is by far the most reliable for any source including polyphonic sources. Also, I wouldn’t think CPU or RAM would alter the quality of your offline rendering. The Algo used definitely will though.
