  1. Use Shift-Right click. Don't move the cursor so far away that it turns into an arrow (it should be a pencil). Cntrl-Right click also works. edited to add: I think this is broken. It should work with just the right click.

    I also use Normalize often. Usually it's only one clip at a time so I don't have the same issue as the OP, but maybe I have learned to only do one at a time to avoid the problems.
  3. Yes, kind of.. You still have to name the clip. There is an option in the Tracks tab (In Track View) to copy track names to clip names. However this also adds a number to the clip name (which is what you are trying to avoid). So this is not a perfect solution for the problem. What I do when exporting mixes, stems or individual tracks (that contain more than one clip) is first create a new track and name it. Then I bounce whatever I want to export to that track. The rendered clip will have the same name as the track. After verifying that the clip sounds as it should I export the clip. FWIW I like your idea. It would make exported files of multiple tracks much easier to organize.
  4. If you export clips instead of tracks the clip name will be the name of the resulting file.

    Is there a way to minimize all tracks in TV?

  6. Korg 1212 I/O. I had an ADAT and that card had a control port for it as well as an optical port. I had a local computer store build a bleeding-edge Pentium 4 machine around it. The whole setup cost over $7K. Korg stopped supporting that card about a week after I got the computer home but it worked well so it wasn't a problem. A year or so later I bought a second ADAT and a BRC so I pulled out the Korg card and installed a card By Sonorus that had 2 ADAT optical ports. I used that rig for several years and while it is currently gathering dust in my dinosaur exhibit, it still works.
  7. Early nineties, a friend who had upgraded gave me his old Cakewalk floppies (I think 3.0). He knew I would really like it and would buy in to the new version. He was right. Three days later I bought a new copy from a local music store. When I called Twelve-Tone to register it they said they had just released another new upgrade and after confirming the purchase date with the store they sent me the latest version. So in the space of two weeks I went through three versions of Cakewalk. After that I followed the upgrade path to CbB. I don't think I skipped more than five versions from Pro Audio through SPlat.. Although I didn't get into SPlat until the Foxboro release (couldn't resist the deflate gate) I was in it for life.

    Nice article on Cakewalk and BandLab

    Another one for the band name list. Thank You. You guys are a never ending source of inspiration.

    Screen resolution issue

    I use a 43" 4K TV (3840x2160 scaled at 150%) for my main monitor. Cakewalk looks great on it as does everything else. I have no idea what may be causing the problem you are having. I just wanted to let you know that 4K does work for others.

    Unavoidable bug - Mouse movement limited and shuttle issue

    Are you using scaling in your display properties? If so try turning it off. I do use scaling and the behavior you describe is exactly what happens if I try to use the scrub tool or jog with it on. I need the 150% scale to be able to read screen so I have learned to live without jog/scrub.

    On/off button in transport for scroll.

    In Track View / Options under Click Behavior you can select "Left click locks scroll"

    Clip properties shortcuts cannot be turned off

    Same here. Cntrl-i and Cntrl-Shift I toggle track tab and Pro Channel properly. Shift- I only opens Clip Properties. It doesn't close it anymore.

    Good news for V-Vocal users

    I don't know about anybody else but this was one of those Homer Simpson head slap moments for me.

    You just click on the muted clip and hit the K button

    ASIO and metronome completely out of sync

    For me a couple of things come to mind. First, Cakewalk/Sonar sometimes has a problem with projects that start at time 00.00.000 (Measure 1 beat 1). Many of us leave an empty measure or more at the beginning of projects. This is one of several reasons my main feature request is negative measures. Second, I never use the metronome. Instead I drag in a drum loop (why would I sync a metronome to a drum loop... nevermind) or more often a step sequencer pattern. I find this to be a more accurate and musical way to lay out the timing of a project in Cakewalk or any other DAW. So... Try copy and pasting the clip out more than 4 measures (after moving it over to start at measure 2). Do the clip boundaries line up with the measure boundaries after 32 measures? If so then clip and measure boundaries will line up even after hundreds of measures. Keep in mind that Cakewalk is designed for a more linear approach than something like Abelton. So to do loop oriented things, normal clips should be converted to Groove Clips and then dragged out. Then the metronome will sync properly.
