  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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»
  7. 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?
  8. 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‘
  9. πŸ˜‚πŸŽ‰πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†πŸ†Nice!!! Thanks big guy.
  10. I know these. Its an everyday use of muscle memory. Just thought maybe, perhaps - there's a shortcut setting to link it to highlighting a region in the clip. Like, if you just select a region it automatically "Enable" the loop playback. That will be an awesome cool feature. πŸ†

    sidechain compression

    a link to one of my tutorials on how to sidechain sidechain in cakewalk.
  12. Is there a shortcut to loop a region by enabling "loop playback," just by highlighting a region on the wave file?
  13. πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚ Forgot all about the this. πŸ™ˆ πŸ˜‚Thanks.
  14. Hi guys. I'm sitting with a question, hoping someone might have an answer to this. I was searching high and low in the preference/strips menu/track menu, every corner I could think of in the DAW - including the module options πŸ™ˆ. I hope there is a setting for this. Is there perhaps a way to hide the "EQ plot?" and if not, is it possible if this feature could be added in the next update? The space is needed when working in the console view. Here's an example of some screenshots I have edit.
  15. No. I was working on two projects before updating to the new version, messed around with the arranger trying to find some good use for it, (which it has, If you do EDM. By the way, isn't the matrix similliar as the arranger?) but I haven't touch any of the settings. Just thrown some loops in and arrange it to my taste. A day later I'd open an old project (Week old.) and that happened. Tried about four times thinking I haven't selected any of the tracks, same story. Just the effects that you hear on the song - Like all the channels were muted, that you only hear the effects on your bus channels . . . πŸ˜•. Luckily for me, the rollback setup came in handy.
  16. Anyone find issues with rendering older projects with the new version? It leaves the song with only the effects being selected.
  17. So far, No known issues my side. πŸ‘Œ AWESOME!!! PS: We need an animation tap dancing emoji/gif or sticker too. 😬

    Blue sticky bar.

    Yeah! All of the above. Thank you for this. It is exactly what I've asked and wanted to know. Regarding to my question on whether no one else experience "Audio Dropouts" when all windows undocked, is to see if everyone else experience what I do - "No audio dropouts." with this workflow. We're all here to improve Cakewalk, and as I said, I've experience a fluent workflow with floating windows. It's been two years now, with no dropouts. It could be my machine - I don't know. Wont hurt anyone if we try this.

    It's not what I'm asking. I know this as I said before. Thanks though.

    Blue sticky bar.

    Something like that, Yes. Like i said in my previous reply. I grew accustomed with this way of working for the past two years. So to have a feature to disabled that Bar, that automatically grab the window back to it's home place, would be awesome. 😟 It will also help if anyone can perhaps try working with all windows undocked, for a day or two, to see if they still experience "audio dropouts."

    Guy's I know how to close and open the INSPECTOR PANE! forget about the Inspector pane and look at the BLUE BAR SHOWN IN THE PICTURE. That's what I'm asking, and that's what I want to get rid of. I make use of all my windows undocked except the console view. My piano roll, Matrix window, Staff View, Browser, Inspector Pane and Synth Rack, I prefer to use them undocked. It makes my workflow easier, and as I've said a few times previously - it eliminates the irritating "Audio Dropout" episodes. I've been working for two years this way without any audio dropouts, it's just that blue sticky bar ( it's what I call it) that keep on grabbing it back to it's place if I move a window to far out of the way as seen in the picture. I guess no one has an answer for this?

    Blue sticky bar.

    I use it undocked. The same with the browser. I know all that shortcuts, you're giving and more. My question is on that blue bar you see in the picture.
  23. Will.

    Blue sticky bar.

    There's a reason for it to be floating around like that! Why would I want to dock the inspector pane when I work better with it undocked? I can just press "I" on the keyboard, If I want it open or close. My question is about the sticky finger bar, that keeps grabbing it, if i move it to far left AS SHOWN IN THE PICTURE.
  24. Will.

    Blue sticky bar.

    Is there a way to remove the "blue sticky finger" bar within Cakewalk - in all windows?
