  1. Place Now Time at the desired point, open the Event List, insert event CC7 with desired value.
  2. Glad to help. Anyway, Cakewalk should place a bank event for those sysex messages that are stored as sysex banks. If not for those at the beginning of the sequence, that are marked for Auto Send, at least for the last reset at the end. If it does not, this is a bug, indeed. That Preferences option sould really be unchecked by default, to avoid situations as yours. Please mark the thread title as SOLVED, so it is easily found for others searching for help.
  3. Uncheck "Always use Sysex banks for MIDI files (instead of Sysex data)" in the Preferences>Midi>Playback and Recording menu, and see what happens. As stated in The FM
  4. I would add that after doing all the routing, saving all with a Track Template is a good idea.
  5. How many screens do you use? Is it possible that you used to open CV in a second monitor that you do not switch on anymore?
  6. You should test everything again. Known plugin persistence problems with have been addressed in the last update. About sluggish transport, how many tracks do you have when you notice that?
  7. FXpansion´s Geist installs a small plugin called Spitter that is placed in the FX bin of any audio track as audio effect and captures the audio and sends it to Geist to be sampled. I haven´t used it in a while, but it used to work perfectly in Sonar Xx. You can even set an input threshold for it to start recording. The thing is that, at least for me, in practice is more convenient to record to an audio track and then drag what you want to the sampler. I can see that if you want to do it in a live context you need other workflow, but if you want to mimic the MPC, for example, what you need first is a suitable dedicated hardware controller. That is IMO why live sampling is the realm of the MPC itself, and Maschine and Push, together with other totally computer independent solutions.
  8. It would be great if you listed version and build, system specs and any info that could help to repro your issues. Not seeing those here. For example, track duplication copies over color, name and volume.
  9. Are those at the sides some kind of Daleks?
  10. I recently was having noise problems with my computer, and changing my wireless mouse and keyboard for others cabled made a great deal of a difference. A Behringer HD400 hum destroyer box between the returns of my Tascam interface to the mixer made the rest.

    Templates question

    But he can actually have a mixing Track template with all the tracks and busses ready with plugins and insert it in the project, and then drag the clips to those tracks.
  12. The only difference between the Kontakt plugins is the number of audio outputs. You can see which is each in the Plugin Manager and rename them so it is less confusing.

    Keyboard bindings

    Keyboard bindings are now in the Preferences menu.
  14. You actually can do a lot of editing with the keyboard. I use the Numeric Pad pretty much for moving notes around, and sometimes having to move your right hand from the keyboard to the mouse feels a bit awkward. Of course it is not that much of a problem, I only asked because I thought that there should be a simple keyboard shortcut that I was missing. It seems that there is not, so I'll have to keep on using the mouse to change focus, hoping that a keyboard action gets implemented in a future update.
  15. Yes, that is basically my point. I think that the default keyboard shortcuts really need an overhaul and proper documentation.
  16. Yes, the problem is shifting focus to edit using just the keyboard. Now that you mention this, how do you scroll the TV without clicking? The only shortcuts I find and use are CTL+Page up/down, but this moves the Now Time, too, not like the Left/Right arrows that scroll the PRV leaving the Now Time where it is. Or you mean using CTL + mousewheel?
  17. The Numeric Pad number 5 (with the numeric pad unlocked) already unselects all. This is what I tend to use while editing in the PRV, even though I use the numeric pad (locked) for nudging notes up and down and I need to unlock it to use it to clear selection.
  18. Speaking of which, it does not work in the PRV either here.
  19. Well, maybe I am not explaining myself too well. I already have the PRV open and docked. Docker at the bottom half of the screen. I am looking for a shortcut to shift focus from the bottom half (PRV in the docker) to the Clips pane in Track View and back. If the PRV is already open, and focus is in the Track View, Alt + 3 does not shift focus to the PRV. The only way to do it that I see is clicking with the mouse.
  20. Thanks a lot for your replies, but I already know and use those. My question is about changing focus from one to the other. Like focus is in Track view and I want to change focus to the docked PRV (with the dock open) and back without having to click with the mouse.
  21. I believe this must be obvious, but I can not find a shortcut to jump from Track view to the PRV open in the Docker and back.🤔
  22. I feel like we need more info on keyboard shortcuts, especially when some of them are changing with new updates. The manual is very much incomplete on this, and not all the shortcuts available by default are listed there. The Key Bindings dialogue in the Preferences menu is awkward, and shows that some functions have multiple key bindings, even though some are as obscure as "Enable/Disable GUI Throttle mode"., which if enabled by accident could cause much confusion and annoyance. I think that an updated, comprehensive list of existing shortcuts should be in the manual. And maybe a way of exporting a text file with the Preferences Key bindings.
