  1. Confirming what @Monomox said. I found the e-mail from Waves. They had a 25% off sale in May 2019. Not sure how long it lasted. Seemed like a few weeks or so.

    25% Off Waves WUP

    @cclarry thank you for verifying the changes I observed on the updated WUP web page. I have some decisions to make!

    25% Off Waves WUP

    Yes, the renewal was for 2 years for all plugins, but for $360. Is that the way it's supposed to work? Maybe I misunderstood.

    25% Off Waves WUP

    The WUP web page has changed recently. I tried the extended renewal trick as written above, and it no longer worked. When selecting all of my 'expired' plugins, the WUP update price was capped and discounted 25% to $180, and the coverage is for one year. As expected. When adding my 'covered' plugins (i.e. renewing covered and expired), the price doubled to $360. An explanation appeared explaining the higher cost was because the renewal included plugins still covered by WUP. Has anyone else tried to renew both WUP expired and covered plugins? Perhaps, I did something wrong. Edit #2: Tried renewing 'expired' and 'covered' plugins separately. But realized this won't work since it would result in the 'expired' plugins having 1-year coverage, and 'covered' having nearly 2-year coverage. Of course, wanted all to have the 2-year coverage (like it used to be)!
  5. +1 on what Alan said. In addition ... The UAD plugins show up and operate just like any other VST plugin in the DAW. The UAD drivers handle the connectivity between the DAW and UAD hardware. I've been using UAD PCIe boards with Cakewalk for years, and it works fine. As you likely know, the UAD plugins can only run using the UAD hardware (e.g. UAD PCIe, Apollo, etc.). Non-UAD plugins don't run on the UAD hardware. There is a limit to the number of plugins which can run simultaneously on a UAD board. I have a QUAD PCIe and occasionally hit the limit. You can always bounce or disable plugins as needed. Here's a link at UAD with a table of DSP usage for the plugins: https://help.uaudio.com/hc/en-us/articles/215262223-UAD-2-DSP-Chart Hope that helps.
  6. I'm able to access the old forum using: http://forum.cakewalk.com/ Tried using "https" in the URL, but it didn't work. Give it a try with "http" (i.e. without an 's'). Hopefully that will work for you too.
  7. @Gswitz Thanks for letting us know about SCA. It's a shame to see they are closing. I wonder when their lease runs out? @53mph I have half dozen SCA modules including an A12 (not A12B). It's based on the API console pre. I use the A12 a lot for mic'ing electric guitars and bass DI. I believe the difference between the A12B and A12 is mainly the discrete opamp being built on the board as opposed to the discrete opamp module on the A12. Should be nearly the same. My setup uses the SCA rack which has a power supply and 8 slots. The SCA rack appears to be discontinued.

    Visual Clip Gain

    Another vote to add Visual Clip Gain as described in the above posts (i.e. visual gain applies to the entire clip). In addition, it would be nice to enhance the existing 'Apply Effect > Gain' with some real-time visual feedback. The "Process > Gain" is useful since it doesn't require splitting the audio into clips. For example: when leveling wayward vocal dynamics, splitting into many small clips can become cumbersome. Perhaps there's a way to combine both 'visual clip gain' and gain on a selected area of the audio. Although, this could be confusing and it's probably better to keep the two features separate.
  9. Here's a link to the 'Feedback Loop' forum request for "Visual Clip Gain". This would be a nice feature to have in CbB.
  10. I don't believe ctrl+z works on faders/knobs (i.e. controls) in CbB. This seems like a good feature request and a topic for the "Feedback Loop" forum. I know some other DAWs implement ctrl+z on controls, but don't have "revert" functionality like CbB. In CbB, each fader/knob keeps the previous value after a change which can be reverted with the right-click menu as described previously. This can be really useful when wanting to revert a change later in an editing session.
  11. Using the mouse, right-click on the fader or knob, and select "Revert to …" It should show the previous value. If the value hasn't changed, I believe there will not be a "Revert to …" in the menu. "Fader" meaning the same as "slider". Hope that's what you are looking for.
  12. One methodology to accomplish this, is to use the "gain" change under the process menu (with a caution): Select the area in the waveform/clip to change the gain. Menu: Process > Apply Effect > Gain. The gain change will appear immediately. CAUTION: The downside of doing it this way is that the operation can be permanent (see the documentation). It can be reverted using the "undo" command. However, I'm not sure it's recoverable beyond "undo". Although, CbB might save the original track in the audio folder. Would be wise to duplicate the track first, so that it can be easily be recovered. P.S. A keyboard shortcut can be created for the "Gain" menu to speed up the process.
  13. In the track view, left side of the track, there is the edit filter menu with "Clips", "Automation", "Clip Automation", etc. After adding the automation, did you select "Clips" in the menu? This allows the track/clips to be edited again.

    Overloud TH-U

    Thank you for pointing out these facts so clearly. This information often gets obscured in the discussions about convolution/IRs/FFTs (i.e. DSP) used for amp & cabinet modeling. I wonder how Kemper and others capture the non-linear characteristics in their profiling.
  15. The 'horizontal' sends are still available in the track view. Is it possible there's not a send added to your track? The horizontal send faders will not appear if no send has been added to the track.
