  1. If you lower the volume of the targeted track the entire source get affected. Same as with Aux tracks?
  2. Thanks. Scook. I'm familiar with it, yes. It's not as powerful though. I have another way to do Aux and Vocals that way - it's just a longer way and 4/5 tracks later just for this method/effect.
  3. Inputs.mkv @Josh Wolfer Now if we can do this on Audio and Aux tracks too - it will be awesome. Right now, if your route the vocals or guitar to an Aux track and create a audioto route it's input to the Aux - It does not work as required.
  4. No this not it, but I hear what you say. To get a better understand - insert an instrument track, than create an audio track and route the audio tracks input to the intrument track. It is another way of sidechain or for a wet and dry effect. I'll insert a video/Gif. Just bare with me.
  5. I'm just going to keep on annoyingly asking everytime the same things until someone answer LOL. My requests are never for nothing. Reason is - the biggest genre's out there, is your EDM; Future Bass; HipHop; Dance and House genres - and to not be limited to only three sidechain methods by the daw itself is ridiculous and should be catered for. As stated in one of my previous posts, it's the ability to route the input of an Audio or Aux track to every other track inserts. Right now, this is only possible with "Instrument tracks." and to be able to do different kind of "Side chain" such as a dedicated side-chain track, is extremely important. To try to understand what i mean. . . Create an instrument track and record something. Insert an "audio track" and route it's "input" to your instrument track - voila! Another form of "Side chain" and a Wet/Dry track. I hate running to pro tools every time I have to work with these genre's and methods - as I've been extremely comfortable in CbB workflow for years. Thanks.
  6. Hey Jim Howzit? Why don't you create them as templates with the correspondent workspace? I got the idea from my "Empty Project" template I had created with only a Master bus and my personal settings I like. So when you want a specific "Workspace" you open them with the saved template. This way you have the option to move around with your templates and desired workspace if it's needed in a different studio environment other than you're own.
  7. Good day Bakers, CbB staff and CbB members. How ya'll doing? Busy times with project requests as we slowly coming out of this world-wide pandemic. So, I was busy working on some drums and inserted the free SSD5 drums - tweaked it to taste, to create the "Motown Room" feel. So, now as I'm busy inserting my reverb - an idea came up. I then went to the vocals and guitars and tried this idea on them, but with no luck. There's a few work arounds, but they're useless and not that great. So here it is . . . Step 1: Insert a virtual instrument of your choice and lay down some chords or notes. Set all it's verb and delay FX to dry. (Or leave it as is, as this is only to demonstrate the request.) STEP 2: Next to your instrument track, create an "Audio Track" and route it's (audio track) "input" to your instrument track as "Stereo." Insert a reverb or delay set it to wet and Voila - now you have an independent "sidechain or Dry/Wet effect track. Great for EDM, Future Bass, House and similar genres. Now what I have noticed is . . . This can't be done with Normal Audio and Aux tracks to work on guitars or vocals this way. Would it be possible to add this feature for both Audio and Aux Tracks too? For Aux tracks, it will simply be for effects on group tracks - and for audio track, it will be to create your own Wet/Dry "effect " with some compressors that dont have the wet/dry feature build in. This will also be another independent way for sidechaining your 808Kick sample or bass guitar or other audio bassline files. It will be extremely beneficial, especially when doing "Mastering." Thanks.
  8. I'm understanding you correctly, do yoy want to export the stems individually as it's in the project? If so - this can be done in Cakewalk. Step 1: Step 2: Choose your channel format. Best to choose Follow Source. This will render Mono and Stereo tracks in their individual formats. Step 3: Choose your file type. Hope this is what you were looking for. forgive me if I'm way off track here, but that's how it works for me.
  9. Excellent - I'm not the only one requesting this. We need more requests and positive replies on other threads on this.

    Popping Plosives

    Its highly Audible on my phone too. Sounds like no Pop filter?

    Freeze tracks

    I've argued this recently on the forum. It only "converts" the instrument file to an "audio file" - It does not render it to a "wave file," which I requested and argued for plenty reasons. One would be -- "Freezing" brings certain limitation for me. I can't manipulate the file 100% as what I'd like too. So, I rather record it in-house to an Aux track. It would've been nice to "Bounce/Render" it to a "Wav.File" in-house though. One benefit of freezing is the ability to "Undo."
  12. @Jeremy Jensen This is how I do my Wet/Dry effect. Plus, you have more control over the effect too. You can add a Mono effect with the interleaved set to mono - it does not affect your Stereo instrument track at all. GIVE AWAY TIP: Extremely handy step when you're doing Mastering. SHHHH! As soon as I can get this GIF to insert URGH! The site don't want to take the GIF sorry. It shows a (-200) ERROR message - so pictures it is. 1: Insert your instrument track and record a few notes. 2: Insert an Audio Track. 3: Route the Input of the Audio Track to your instrument track. 4: Mix to your desired taste by lowering the instrument fader to balance out the volume levels with the newly created wet effect and vice-versa. It makes good work for side chain too. Note: This routing method does not work by sending the instrument track output to an Aux track and works only on "Instrument Track Inserts" Enjoy.
  13. Lol. None taken, I know it was with good intention. I was merely just throwing in some humour.
  14. Good Day Bakers and Members. I see when selecting two or four tracks to resize together does not work. It never bothered me until a few weeks ago. The Auto Zoom on tracks works just fine. I see the Shift+Z command has also been disabled to be manually added in keyboard shortcuts - which is not a deal breaker. What is though, is the ability to highlight selected tracks to resize in on tracks with Ctrl+Drag option on highlighted tracks alone. Thanks. ~Will

  16. Windows defender - I hate it. When you update windows, always disconnect or uninstall any antivirus you might be running during this process -- especially Avast.
  17. Well, It didn't get 10 or 40 responses. So, I'm gonna keep requesting until it get's picked up. Why do you find my four requests problematic? Everyone has some idea's that falls on deaf ears a few times, before it eventually gets noted. This will benefit me in my workflow and I'm sure for others too who hasn't seen the request yet. Why hide the strip with the global on and off switch of the pro channel when hiding the eq module? Just because I don't use the channel EQ doesn't mean the entire pro channel features should gets hidden. I do use the channel compressors, tube and saturation especially the console emulator. @Jim Fogle Don't bust my man parts like this. 😭
  18. Hi Bakers. Mouse wheel on "vocalsync" does not work. Mouse wheel on a stretch out "Insert Audio Fx" tab, does not work in Track View or Console View - to add an effect.
  19. Good Day Bakers. We all know the comfort of working with keyboard shortcuts and how it saves time, right? Another add-on option to an existing keyboard shortcut would be amazing to have at our disposal too. Can the option of choosing a "Mono and Stereo" Audio or Midi track output be added in the box below when pressing the "Insert key" on your keyboard in both pictures? The option is already there for instrument tracks - can we just add it to Audio tracks too? This option on the computer keyboard is an instant insert for audio tracks. So whenever you hit "insert" on your keyboard the option should follow all the properties chosen for this feature and should the need be to choose a stereo audio track - it should be with Alt+Insert. Having it available in the second picture will benefit other users too. It would be extremely awesome to have it available in all aspect of track inserts, as all of our workflow and creativity differs from one another. For instance, I'm a shortcut and floating window nerd - so I hardly do the mouse click inserts. I pray that this reach someone's attention. ~Will~
  20. It's probably my fourth time requesting this for 2020. When hiding the "Pro channel" under the module tab in the console. Can we get it to only hide the visual eq square and not the "Post; Clip indicator and on/off button." I like to work with as minimum visual as possible. However, the pro channel on and off switch/button comes in handy a lot. I rarely use the pro channel EQ that's why I hide it's visual box, (called ""PRO CHANNEL" under the Module tab in console view.) but I do use the Console Emulators on every track and one or two FX dials. Having the global Pro Channel on and off button visible is essential - I don't see why it should get hidden with the clip indicator LED and post button too. I've requested this a few times. Please bakers. 😭
  21. Doesn't a stereo effect turn a mono channel to stereo? and a mono effect a stereo channel mono?
  22. 1: Go to preferences. 2: Under Audio Tab select "Driver Settings." • Click Stereo Panning Law • Set to 0dB center, balance control. 3: Apply and do a test. Record in mono, set the interleave to Mono and do a pan test - this should work for you.
  23. @marled Your request has been picked up and noted. Send the project.
