  1. That motif starting at 0:24 is compelling and I personally would have really expanded on it. Nice composition in general. 👍
  2. Hey, Here is a recent song I wrote and mixed. Guitars were performed by me and recorded in Cakewalk by Bandlab. Drop A tuning; Mercuriall SS-11x amp simulator; Bass is Colossal Bass II with a B7K preset. Krzysztof Klingbein was hired to play Drums; Orchestral instruments are from The Complete Orchestral Collection Choir instruments are from Soundiron - Requiem Light This track was then mixed in Cakewalk by Bandlab. Enjoy.
  3. Hey Bob, Listening to this mix on my Eve Audio monitors and ATHM50x cans. Low mids are very hyped and the kick/bass/guitar is clashing hard in this area; Bass is too loud; Song falls apart at 1:16 - beat flips and the additional guitar is not in sync with the song, feels like the whole song is not in rhythm here; Song comes back together with itself at around 1:39; There are strange cymbal hits that seem to come out of nowhere sometimes (1:14, for example); I'd add some more presence into the rhythm guitars - something like a small 10k boost with an API for example. Low-Mids here are the biggest issue in my opinion. Turn down the bass, dig out the 200-700 area of the bass aggressively; you can boost around 3k for some grit to blend into the guitars which will let the bass poke through as well. Have to agree with others and say the vocals are great, though! Wish I could sing, haha. 🤣
  4. My original goal when starting the channel was exactly this. I actually was personally involved in producing official Cakewalk tutorials on their YouTube channel for a few months before Gibson pulled the plug. I used the crossover discount to buy Studio One 3.5 and found the DAW to be very similar to Cakewalk. However, I do a lot of MIDI work and I found S1's PRV to be frustrating. I personally believe Cakewalk still has the best PRV functionality. (I may be biased, I used it for over 15 years.)
  5. Just did a Google search for "cakewalk style dial mouse disappears" and basically that thread popped up and I scanned it for a similar situation.
  6. No, I didn't. I'll report it now. All of them. I found somebody else also having the same issue in 2017. Here is the link to the post.
  7. I didn't spend any time on the video sync module because most people who open Cakewalk by Bandlab for the very first time are not scoring films, commercials, or doing anything with film. In all the years I've been doing Cakewalk tutorial videos, I have never once received a question, comment, or request to do any content regarding the Video sync module. It's due to this experience that I didn't spend any time on it. Going into a little more detail about the Punch-In module made more sense as it's something new users would probably want to use. I don't know if you're trolling me, but I'd imagine that a person would be able to take it at face-value what the Loop module does. Any in-depth explanation about it would be redundant. Yeah, I don't... I mean, it's pretty easy to understand that the audience is very clearly defined: new users to Cakewalk by Bandlab.
  8. Hello, Edit: 23 March 2019 I decided it could be helpful to include a list of upcoming tutorial videos and their links. The video below is the first video in the playlist, but if you are interested in a specific topic, check the following list for quick navigation. If there is no link for it yet, it means I haven't uploaded it. I can take requests, but keep in mind that I run another business on top of my actual Chernobyl Studios audio work, so if I like the idea, it'll get put on the list and I'll get to it when I get to it.

I have a channel on YouTube that I created many years ago for creating Cakewalk SONAR Platinum tutorials. I constantly get questions, comments, and requests on those old videos I did years ago. I'm updating all of the Cakewalk videos I did for SONAR Platinum to Cakewalk by Bandlab. There are three videos currently online, with 4 more already scheduled to come out this week. Please share this playlist with anybody who is getting started with Cakewalk by Bandlab. I am starting from the very basics and will work all the way through mixing an entire song. It will take a few weeks, but it will be worth it. 😎
  9. Hello, While creating my videos for YouTube, I came across the following bug. If the style dial is not enabled and you go to use the knob, clicking on it and spinning it, the mouse cursor will disappear and the knob will not turn. You need to close the program and re-open it again. Enabling the style dial before moving the knob obviously solves this issue. Thanks.
