  1. True! I did not know that. I am used to split with "S", not with ALT + Click, and sections with the Split dialog box. 😀
  2. Thanks, Heinz, but that does not actually quite do what I suggest. I want to be able to move the loop bracket by the snap resolution. One bar is not enough. The idea is to have a long recorded midi or audio sequence and slide the loop by, for example, sixteenth notes. I like to jam with hardware arpeggiators and sequencers, introduce random or generative elements and record the output. I then set a loop of the desired length, one, two, or four bars, and move the loop bracket with the mouse by the smallest resolution of the sequence to find and sample different rythmic or melodic phrases. In Ableton Live you can do this with the arrow keys, and it is much more convenient than using the mouse. Anyway, thanks again for the CAL scripts. I use a Contour Shuttle Pro, mainly for navigation, and I will set up a couple of buttons to try them.
  3. No, he means a shortcut for "Split at selection", the second option in the Split dialog box, that cuts at both ends of the selected region. "S", or ALT + Click only splits once.
  4. Yes, slide it ahead or behind according with the snap resolution, to try possible loops in a recording.
  5. What the title says. I'd like to be able to move the loop selection bracket with a keyboard shortcut.
  6. If there was a "bug" like that these forums would be in flames. I´m sure that some troubleshooting will fix it.
  7. Welcome to the wonderful world of audio recording. 😀
  8. Yes, but I don´t know what other software you might have installed in your PC.
  9. As I said above, if both things are not synced, they drift apart over time. This has nothing to do with latency. And nudging the clip will not help, either, because you do not have a fixed offset. The solution that @William W. Saunders, Jr. suggests above is good, but I do not think that your keyboard is able to send clock if it cannot not receive it. I had a look at a Casio CT-X3000 midi implementation chart, just to get an idea, not knowing of course whether it is your keyboard or not, and it does not send nor receive clock. If yours is this model, or something alike, you are out of luck. You could still try to fix it manually, but it is probably too time consuming. I would do what I said above, just transfer your midi tracks to CbB (it seems that you could need a Casio utility to do it), and record them back from there using your keyboard as external sound module.
  10. What you can do, if you use something like Autohotkey, is a simple key macro like this: CTL+C CTL+V CTL+ Num 8 This copies selected notes, pastes them again in place, and then moves the newly created notes up an octave. Same with Num 2 (both in the numeric pad) duplicates an octave below. Or you can keep pressing CTL + Num to keep on moving octaves up or down. I just used a Contour Shuttle Pro to create the macro and assign it to a button, and it took me about two minutes. I haven´t used Autohotkey, but I guess that you can get the same.
  11. If you press the mouse wheel (acting as the mouse center button), the Tool HUD with the Edit Filter appears right at the cursor, you don´t need to move the mouse at all.
  12. Another thing: in case that your keyboard is not able to sync to external gear, like some home keyboards, next best option is looking if it is possible to download your sequencer midi data to the computer, and load your midi backing tracks in CbB.
  13. Maybe I misunderstood, but I thought that you are using tracks in an internal sequencer in your keyboard. If you do, you need to sync them with CbB: - Set your keyboard to receive external midi clock. Most midi equipment with integrated sequencers will allow to do that. - Set CbB to send Midi Clock/Start/Stop to the midi port where your keyboard is connected in Preferences/Project/MIdi That way, both are using the same tempo and grid, and the keyboard's transport is slaved to Cakewalk's. Depending on your tempo, 1/32 note is short enough to have troubles if both are not in sync and your backing tracks and CbB drift away in time. If they drift too much quantizing will not fix that easily. That should be the first thing that you check, because it is what will mess your timing completely. Once you are sure that everything is using the same tempo and grid, and is starting with a single transport, you can check if you somehow need to set a fixed offset for any reason, hardware latency, or whatever, like @Blogospherianman was saying above.
  14. I have a screenset for a full screen Console, and I am using two monitors. I used to have screensets where the Multidocker was in the second monitor, because I did not like it that much either, but I have found that it is more ergonomic for me just to press D and keep looking at the same monitor than changing my point of view, so nowadays I am using the second monitor mainly to park plugins, VU meter, Big Time window, and such.
  15. I want to believe that the dev team is working on that. Noel said not long ago that this is no trivial task, though.
  16. I am not sure, but I would agree with @David Baay that this looks like a sync problem. Are you sending midi clock to the keyboard while you play? How are you recording the backing tracks from the keyboard into Cakewalk?
  17. You need to insert a new event in the Event List. Click on it to edit, the dialog box above appears. just change its kind and add the desired values. There is not much to it, just follow the directions in this link: https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=Cakewalk&language=3&help=EditingMIDI.49.html#1150999
  18. I am not quite sure about your specific problem and about VST plugins and Sysex, but I am pretty sure that Cakewalk can route sysex in realtime. As a matter of fact, Studioware panels are still supported, and they could use sysex to control external hardware in real time. Not sure about the possible limitations with VST plugins.
  19. I bought Rapture Pro, but I almost never use it, I tend to use Rapture. For some reason, I much prefer the interface, and I Dimension never really clicked with me.
  20. Yes, that fluid but kind of shaky zooming is something I personally do not like. I prefer drag selecting an area with the zoom tool and zooming in instantly. It would be enough for me they did fix that ALT-Z does not work in the PRV, but of course I am ok with having well implemented choices.
  21. https://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/forum/all/dxgkrnlsys-and-tcpipsys-high-latency-in-windows-10/609f7b4e-63af-40f1-85b3-7dcc7452200c I googled around a bit and it seems that your problem is not uncommon. I am no expert by any stretch, but just for experimenting I would disable the network card to see if it does any difference. I would also disable the HDMI audio driver.

    Korg Volca Sample

    You will want to be able to send midi clock and start/stop commands from Cakewalk to the Volca, in order to sync both. Your laptop input is meant to be a microphone input. It will record the Volca, but it will most probably sound awful.
  23. Those "parts" are clips, and each can have a name, but the Piano Roll View will show them as a continuous line. You can see them in the Track View as separate clips. There are several ways to (re)name them, like right clicking in a clip and choosing (!) "Rename clip", or in the Clip Properties in the Inspector...It is documented, not only in the online help but also there is a beefy .pdf manual (1,700+) pages, a.k.a. the Reference Guide. You might want to have a look at it.
  24. It zooms to the desired area, faster. It is of course different, because it zooms instantly. In the video each time he zooms he needs to zoom in and out a little and then center the area in the screen. With the zoom tool in CbB you just need to drag select a marquee and it zooms instantly to it, centering it in the screen. No "camera movements".
  25. You don´t really need to drag in the timeline in Cakewalk, either. Use the Zoom tool. Press Z, the cursor changes to a magnifying glass, like in the video. Drag select the area in the clips pane where you want to zoom to, and it will zoom to it until it fills your screen. Press ALT-Z and instantly go back to where you were before. If you drag select while keeping Z pressed, when you release it changes back to the previous tool, also. If not, you need to press Z again to let go of the Zoom tool. You can zoom in repeatedly this way, and if you want to go back, you also need to press repeatedly ALT-Z, which might be inconvenient, so what I do in that case is to press SHIFT -F so all the project fits on screen, and then zoom select the area where I want to go. I think this is a faster way to navigate than any other possible method. The only problem is that in the PRV the Zoom tool works, but ALT-Z does not.
