  1. Is this the only project with which you experience the popping?
  2. Hey, @User 905133, actually you are correct. As you surmise, I had the Inspector "docked at left" and didn't notice the problem. So, yeah, it does suffer from lack of support for the 2020.04 interface change. I'll update my post to reduce confusion. Sorry about that. Good catch!
  3. Can't go wrong with this: Creative Sauce - Drum Beats with Cakewalk  by BandLab
  4. I don't know if this falls into the cateogry of "Pro Tip" or not, but I realized something today that I'd like to share: OK, so I use the Audio Metronome, and assign it to its own bus, called "CLICK", and directed to the Hardware Out. All other tracks are usually directed to a common MASTER buss which in turn is directed to the Hardware Out. (This means that if I bounce down the MASTER, I hear everything EXCEPT the CLICK, which is handy, if that's what you want.) Anyway, I realized today that I could automate the Buss Output Volume on the CLICK buss. This allows me to have a "Count In" click, wherever I need it (at the beginning or other strategic locations), and I just leave the metronome enabled for Playback and Recording. If I want to go back to "always on" metronome, temporarily, I disable READ AUTOMATION on the CLICK buss. I swear, this is the first time I've ever used Read Automation = OFF in actual practice. Anyway, I hope someone out there finds this useful. Alternatively, if you think this is bleeding obvious and I'm an idiot for not figuring it out before now, feel free to let me know below. Regards and happy recording!
  5. In a word, No. Personally I think that it's all about creativity and experimentation, not tradition or standardization. However: understanding what each FX does to the signal can suggest sensible cascades. For example, a compressor evens out the sound and usually goes first in the chain... except you might want to EQ the signal first, at which point the compressor may behave differently (and vice-versa). But neither sequence (EQ>Comp vs Comp>EQ) is necessarily more correct. In the case of reverberations, typically you might put the reverb last in the chain, to simulate an acoustic space. But then, you might need to EQ that so that it "sits in the mix" even though technically you are messing with the acoustic space simulation. But the classic exception would be the Gated Reverb: Hugh Padgham discovered that putting a gate after the reverb can be very musical in some situations (DRUMSSHHHH. ) TLDR: It depends
  6. Yeah, "Pro Sonar 12.5" is a good starting point, and seems to be compatible with 2020.05. Update: Well, it is "compatible" but as User905133 points out, it does not support the 2020.04 UI change. This should be an easy fix for anyone who cares enough.
  7. Heh. To be clear, I was just pointing out that The Edge was an early adopter of Korg's SDD-3000 digital delay and although the earlier albums can definitely be replicated (heh) with a tape-delay or analog pedal, the tones from Unforgettable Fire and Joshua Tree are pure digital delay.

  9. Oh, well, um, glad to help 🙂
  10. Are you referring to the Bypass All Effects button in the Control Bar's Mix module? It's trivial to test this out. By default it will bypass: Clip FX, Track FX Rack, Track ProChannel FX, Buss FX Rack, and Buss ProChannel FX. You can also independently bypass All Track FX Racks; All Buss FX Racks, All Clip FX racks via a right-click context menu option on each rack. I don't think there is a way to bypass ProChannel FX independently in the same way but I'm sure scook will show up to let us know if there is.
  11. Ask your doctor if Cakewalk is right for you. Also, I highly recommend reviewing some tutorials to get your comfort level with the software improved.
  12. Thanks! I'm not sure what happened to the attachment, but I've just refreshed the first post with a new ZIP. You should be able to download it now. I don't think there are any differences since I last refreshed it in April, but let me know here if there are problems, and I am sorry for the inconvenience.
  13. Studio One is my album mastering tool of choice. It's a good DAW. Best of luck to you too.
  14. Interesting. Doesn't work in the PRV; or in "blank/unused space" in the track view, but does indeed work on existing tracks/lanes. Good to know. I don't feel that it resolves my irritation at the behavior, though. Thanks.
