  1. It keeps adding all 32 outputs of my mixer console. 🤨 What am I missing?
  2. Tested this just now, and this adds unnecessary extra tracks. Where previously you could choose yourself. How do we disable that feature? Most of the time 85% of the work you do, you don't use all the outputs on a supported drum plug. Sometimes it's just 3 or 5 outputs and the rest is external drum samples of your choice. (Well, in my case.)
  3. Everything asked here for "Improvement" Cakewalk already produces way better workflow than your list. You're used to reason, so now you want to implement reasons work around (which I know extremely well) to Cakewalk. It's like insulting someone's mother. 😟 NO! NO! NO! and that 75 of them? WOW!
  4. Woaw! Yeah! This is a much easier way! Thanks a lot. Now, we just need to get this in visual. 🤣🤘 I've done much better editing today with this method, and it is super quick!!!
  5. Still not as effective as to what me and msmcleaod talking about. It's a 2005 technique. We're in 2020, and need cleaner and more time saving powerful methods. Though, awesome little trick. It still affects the entire clip on my side and not the selected region.
  6. What if we can skip all of this unwanted steps which is not as straight forward as my idea of visual clip gain directly on the waveform. Way easier and a time saver.
  7. You see the problem with this Gswitz is, that it decreases the overall volume of the entire clip. You don't want to touch your the entire recording. By what I am suggesting will allow you to increase the volume, of only a certain word you want to make louder or decrease in volume.
  8. Oh man! you had your hand full. lol. I do that when I'm in the mood for a lot of work. 🤣🤯
  9. That is what I'm crying for! You would make the community extremely happy if this could come to surface this year, after discussing it with the team. Appreciate that msmcleod.
  10. I do the 16-32 backing vocals a lot, and that is why I brought up this topic. LOL! My approach is 95% exactly that same as your rack.
  11. I here what you say, but why not eliminate some of that automation ride and add the slider or knob with the ability to only even out or decrease a spike?
  12. Targeting a specific area/word/letter/breath to increase or decrease the clip volume, will be happening in real-time with a little slider or knob popping up on keyboard command. Is that the non-destructive normalization we're talking about?
  13. That's why my suggestion on this non-destructive ability to normalize/gain only the word, letter or spike, will focus only on that area you want to edit fix/edit.
  14. but with a gain staging ability in lowering or increasing only a letter or single word in the waveform. Surely it wont bring latency as you would have the ability to bounce your gain edit. I mean isn't that what happens when you apply the effect after you're happy with your increase/decrease in volume only on that specific area within the waveform?
  15. What is your approach when processing backing vocals? Do you EQ, Compress, limit or use filters?
  16. I never thought of creating their own shortcuts. I'll have a look at it and see how that works for me. I still prefer the Non-destructive "waveform slider" I spoke of to rise to the surface this year in Cakewalk. Thanks for the shortcut idea Craig.
  17. A lot of DAW's come with this feature these days. I have been using the cakewalk brand for many years and I'm not going anywhere. #ImStaying So, let's rather bring cakewalk up to date and help the developers create a better DAW.
  18. Craig Anderton non-destructive yes. It's a hassle to go up and select normalize or gain, and many times you don't want rely fixing these critical edits in melodyne. It brings out some phase issues on certain instruments on a note, samples or vocals.
  19. The idea for my topic is to skip as much volume riding with automation. My idea would cut the working process in half if this gets introduced. Though it wont eliminate the process of volume automation in general, but with create a far powerful method in getting those gaining levels as close as possible.
  20. Unfortunately, that depends on your screen size, OS and resolution. The new updated version of Windows 10, sizes things down extremely compact. But of course, a wider 23inch screen monitor or 28inch will fit best here.
  21. The only update I would like too see in Cakewalk this year, is the ability to "visual gain" the selected region without having to go up to process, and guess how much gain you need to add on the selected waveform.
  22. Highlight only the strips you want to narrow. So, every time you want to narrow only a specific group of tracks, you have to highlight only that group you wish to narrow. 1: Click on the first track of the group, and drag as you highlight at the bottom. 2: Next- hold down Ctrl and select narrow strips. Move to your other groups and do exactly the same. Step 1: Highlight the other 4/5 group tracks. Step 2: Hold down Ctrl and Narrow those. When you highlight don't press down on Ctrl. You only press and hold down on Ctrl when selecting "Narrow Strips"
