  1. It's disabled. You can't enable/disable it from the keyboard. The luxury of swtiching it on or of manually with ex-keyboard shortcut "SHIFT+Z" has been disabled. It is now causing this problem if you enable it in the TAB leaving it on "Automatically" mode.
  2. Why has the "auto track zoom" been disabled from shortcuts? This automatic by default - is frustrating. I can't seem to find separate binding settings for it in preferences. If you select one track to zoom, "aka" expand down on - it works as expected. As soon as you select two tracks or more to zoom down on, it expands all the tracks. 😭 It's frustrating. Holding down on Ctrl/Shift or Alt, does not work either. On previous versions, it was a GEM in my workflow. It has now become dreadful to use. 😭
  3. Why don't you just throw all your hidden tracks in a folder? Much easier and convenient. πŸ™„
  4. Read Mr. Craig Anderton's reply. 😞
  5. @CraigAnderton My point exactly Sir. Thank You.
  6. Ctrl+M will mute all tracks. Get your hands on a sheet to all the shortcuts. Do some research on youtube. What phone are you using?

  7. With New skool in guitar recording today. Most "oldskool" guys I've seen, does it completely dry into the project. Sometimes with just a little compression. Due to many option available with plugins these days. Here we can alter it how ever we want. The question with this is. Do you use that chorus effec plugin on guitars still or Do you create your own chorus effect just by using one take on the left channel - and record a second, third and fourth take over it and end up with 16tracks on the left. Or - do you go for a chorus plugin and do four takes.
  8. Yeah. Go ahead. When you're done updating the missing files in .NET2.0 grab the 4.8 update too. It will work better with the Noverber 2019 update from 1903 to 1909.
  9. Lol! Yes, kind of. πŸ˜‚ Cause visual is everything. I totally get your analogy, definition is extremely important in both Art and Music. It's all good, no stress. 🀘
  10. So I've decided to do the insider program from "Microsoft" two years ago, which I love testing out - and stumbled upon problems with running Cakewalk on this new build. Hence - this release of windows is yet to be released to the public, and hope they fix these bugs soon. I'm running a copy of Cakewalk on my laptop, obviously cant I do this on my main system. Laptop specs: "i7 - 6th gen processor, MSI - H81M Gaming Motherboard, G-Series, with 8Gb "cosiar" ram. I'm getting Audio dropouts after every single thing I do. Ctrl+s and BAM! Audio Dropouts. Did you say closing a pluging? Doosh! "Audio Dropouts." 😭 Don't know if it's Microsoft side or Cakewalk - as the 2004 Windows build, is yet to be released next month. Just a heads up. 🀘
  11. Most Antivirus software cause this issue too. Especially the free version of Avast. Disconnect your firewall for 10mins or until the next restart and re-install, or run the "sfc /scannow" in cmd. We've all been there. I seem to deal with this issue every single day, with most online pages as well. I only disconnect my firewall until the page load. I'm running the latest 1909 OS Build and updates. Waiting on 2004 to drop next month.
  12. I'm with @msmcleod - it really is just what he said. No harm will come to your settings or projects. I don't do it everyday though, but when i feel something does not work right. Dont tell anyone, but It's mostly just in my head. 🀣 It helps to clear the cache of DAW. (Feels safer re-intalling it.) I'm so paranoid. 🀘
  13. I do Hiphop/EDM/House and Pop. Give it some time. Your fingers will marry the "H" key soon. The cool thing about all those hidden tracks is - you can always go back and change a note ect. It's like having two magical red shoes. 🀘
  14. Oh-man! This is so right on my tongue. I stress if i don't record a take as perfectly as possible. I'd say 65% of the takes I do, I hardly need to trim the gain. On that guitars though - I seem to just do dry takes all the time. Reason for this obviously is different songs require different feel to it. So, I rather prefer doing all its processing inside Cakewalk - using old mixing methods. I'm a huge fan of the chorus effect on tracks, using only one take. I don't use a chorus plugin - I prefer to make my own effect with the recorded file, then hide it so it is not as noticeable in the track. Awesome stuff.
  15. Is old skool editing better than new skool editing? I began my mixing career in 2008. Since then - I have learned so much skills and new plugins. I then began digging deeper into the legacy of great mixing tips that was used by great engineers and now, I seem to be stuck with their methods today. πŸ˜… Going back and forth with plugins giving us the ability to do the same techniques, and to create the same sounds with presets in most 3rd party plugings, I still seem to find myself doing things using old techniques. It makes it exciting to mix and bring something different everytime. What are your thoughts on this and how do you do things? Has anyone adapted the new way of mixing? What is your go to techniques - especially on sidechain. "Plugins or routing?" I'm in my early 30's and I'm the only one in my age group of mixing engineers going about this method. Peace.
  16. Does Bandlab own the shortcut app on Playstore and Apple store? Would be lovely if it can be updated. I've download it again two days ago, and it is still the same as 3years ago I think. All you need to search is "Sonar shortcuts" on Apple or Play store.
  17. Lol. I know he is. We sometimes forget that small, but effective shortcuts the DAW provides, with all these new 3rd party plugins coming out. Example: I use the sonitus delay and phase plugins - like 90% in all my projects, because they're that good. I was just merely interacting in the conversation. ☺ It's all good. 🀘No stress.
  18. Why don't you use Shift+Alt and drag the waveform within Cakewalk? I cant make a Gif as usual. I'm upgrading my system plus, updating my BIOS and Windows.
  19. I've been using pro tools 7 years, and I'm gona tell you now, when it comes to going "into" the wave form - cakewalk does it pretty much the same. It's just more "Old-skool" with it. That's why we need more Hiphop/EDM producers and engineers such as myself - using Cakewalk. I'm excited to say, that will change soon. I have posted a topic to request and introduce Cakewalk to "Visual clip gain" and it was picked up, which we're getting soon. Yeah! 🀘 πŸŽ‰πŸ†πŸ»
  20. I see this removes the ability to enable/disable the prochannel as a whole. I assume there's no way around this to hide only the Visual EQ plot's little "box" and not the on/off and preset bar?
  21. Totally understand. I wasn't infront of the PC when I got the Shift+Space tip, that's why I had to correct myself by changing my previous comment, which you have beat me to. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜Œ I remember stumbling on this a few years ago by accident, but totally forgot about it as I thought it was the same as Shift+L. So, i apologize for that. This one will do just fine. I thank you for that. πŸ‘
  22. πŸ˜‚πŸŽ‰πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†Nice!!! Thanks big guy.
