    I see. Centering only works if the visible modules fit within the screen width. If there's too many modules to show & the scrollers are present it won't center.

    Just tried it. Maybe I xpects too much, maybe. :S

    😅 Yes. 

    There's always modules you don't really need or that you never use. Try removing those and keep a clean look for all your needs.

    I don't have Internet in my recording room, also no wifi, our house is about 70m away from it!

    I also don't understand your comment about "re-invent the wheel", there is an offline authorization for CbB, but it requires BA!

    Or - you can just buy a USB simcard modem/dongle? You can find it anywhere - they're like $5-15 and purchase a 10/20/40/50/100GB (what you can afford) internet data just for your CbB updates every (2nd) month.

    Like a word processor, "center" means


    🤦🏽‍♂️ Sometimes I just wonder. 

    You are aware that this is false on larger resolution screens, right? Larger resolution - more space, more real estate for extra modules on the right.

    Smaller screen resolution less space and "aligning" things your way. 

    FWIW: Every DAW where the user can customize the control panel/transport bar (depending what its called there) won't work as your request. Only those with a "fixed" Control panel/Transport Bar will adjust as requested.

    sounds like one of those things that needs prototyping to determine any benefits, an expensive thing with no definite/guaranteed benefits - also hasn't CUDA been around for a few years already? why the new interest, why hasn't this been exploited already?

    Apparently you can test a demo version when you sign up. I'm yet to get my "glutes" back home.

    Anyone willing to run a test (on their test machines) and share some results?

    I don't understand what you mean by "previous project" 

    Re-save (over rides) the "existing" project that was previously saved. 

    I know how workspaces work and i'm familiar in all its advantages. It's mainly template based. You saved your workspaces with your templates, but it can also be customised based on you project workflow. 

    Whats happening here is none of that. Hopefully i'm back home by monday. I'm back in the country, but i was booked for radio interviews this weekend.

    Question is whether the CbB bakers see a possibility to implement it or not. Other DAWs are already jumping the bandwagon, so why not our favourite DAW?

    The real question to ask would be: Will it cost CbB any money? We're on a free DAW. I doubt that they will give this to any DAW or Plugin developers for free . . . ? 

    Also - is it for both Windows and Mac? I've seem to have missed that in the interview.

    But then Screensets are per project.  

    Exactly. What ever tweaks you do here re-save the existing project. So everytime you make tweaks to the project it only affects the projects. 

    So one would think, when you open the project and do some tweaks to it re-save the previous project, it would not open the last Vsti with the project load, right?

    It's not really possible to not use screensets. 

    I do not use custom screensets (but) the default one. I have never ever went into that panel NOT ever. So I don't know what you're not getting. 

    In order for you are describing to work - the user have to custom save a screenset with the template to work that way.  

    In my case: I have always saved a project, even with a Vsti open (in case a crash) do some tweaks here and there - close the GUI and save the project, do a some more tweaks while unconsciously (muscle memory) saving the project. Never ever has it opened the last VSTi that was used with a project load.

    Defiantly a weird one. And this is every project I assume as you said in the OP. 

    The reason I asked was you said 

    This is what I'm trying to grasp as this implies it is the last GUI you had open and then you closed it. Correct? 

    Yep. Every single time. I can close the GUI and do 100 of saving after that with 1000's of editing on other clips and save it without any plugin open. If I close CbB and ipen it the next time BOOM the last instrument that was used opens with the project.

    This is a long shot, but.... have you checked if MIDI control is enabled in your Keyboard Bindings?  It could be a MIDI note triggering the "Open Soft Synth on Current Track" command.

    Yes, theres nothing. 

    But even if there was one, wouldn't I have to press it to open the GUI of the plugin? Just thinking.

    In my case I never leave them open before closing. 

    Never have I ever left a Plugin open saved the project and close the daw. 

    As soon as i'm done with sound design in the Plugin - that's when i close it and start tightening up the midi notes in the PRV. It's a habbit of mine to tighten this up after I am completely happy with the sound design process. That instrument wont be opened again - that's a guarantee. 

    Maybe a recent windows 10 update? I'm on the 21h2. 

  12. Feature request: 

    Can we have an option when bouncing multiple audio clips on the same track to not link up as one clip? 

    Also . . .

    For midi clips to not crop itself to the nearest note at the beginning or end where there are no information on the beat count.

    Sometimes when you do cuts on a midi clip, to rearrange the chords, from middle to back, or back to front - it crops itself when they are bounced together. This requires the user to drag the clip out to fill the measure/bar and then do a groove clip so it can retain the size.

    Audio clips, yes. MIDI clips, no. Names disappear.

    Edited OP to clarify.

    HUMOUR: 😭 You let me waste 10mins to record that audio clip and to make the video just to rephrase the OP? 🤣

    On a serious note: 😐

    Isn't it maybe for reasons such as: you can easily change your mind and choose a different preset or a totally different VSTi - last minute in the project? So keeping a name would not make sense if you go from a grand piano to a flute. 

  14. I own a Toshiba i5 7800K laptop with 16GB ram - a standard machine for all-purpose usage. About two weeks ago I installed SPlat and CbB last. Everything worked great during that short run on things.

    The next day: 

    I grabbed my external to get a project I'm recently working on and threw in the project folder, unplugged the hard drive, and took it back to its original place. I then returned and worked less than 30mins, and BANG! it crashed. At this point, I thought it was probably driver's issues and got up again to get my secondary Focursrite 2nd-Gen, but to no avail. It kept crashing every time. 

    Four days later and it was just annoying to get these crash issues, but looked past it. Then I thought of something I don't have on the main system - "SPLAT." I decided to uninstall SPLAT and what do you know -- no more crash problems to this day on this little thing.

    This got me thinking - can SPLAT be the cause of all these crash reports? I never have any crash issues on the studio system (with no splat.) So why did I get it on the laptop with both on | and | once it was uninstalled the issue magically disappeared?

    Where is the helpful, positive spirit that some of you talk about? I cannot identify something like that above! 

    Help on what? What help is he actually seeking? It's not clear if he wants help or not. His first complaint is about Digital Performer and then strawberry ice cream? 🤔 not completely sure.

    So, I'm changing the name of a track "Addictive Drums" to "Fills". When I hit enter for the name change, there suddenly appears a previously unrecorded cowbell that also doesn't appear in piano roll. Only way to get rid of it is quit and not save. And I definitely didn't say "MORE COWBELL!" or even "any cowbell". Any explanation?

    Voodoo! 🤣 Welcome to Cakewalk. 🤸🏽‍♂️

  17. Another great addition to this:

    When the lanes are collapsed and all your envelopes sits infront on the clip - the ability to do cuts on a region is disabled. This make it impossible to do a quick cut for some comping or other form of edits. 

    So if we can do some cuts when the envelopes sits infront and also gets cut with the clip - would be great.
