  1. Live is my main DAW. Alas, it's pretty unique in the DAW world so not a whole lot will translate verbatim. Are you looking to perform live? If then, no slam on Cakewalk as at least it can be used where many other DAWs can't, but Ableton is by far your best option. Everything about it is designed with that in mind.
  2. All you capture with 96kHz is garbage that no one can hear and has to be filtered out anyway. That stuff you see may be dithering to frequencies that no one can hear or noise in your interface or from somewhere else. If you want reduced latency, you can get it with 96 kHz if you can run a small enough buffer but it puts a lot more strain on the CPU. I've heard people argue that those frequencies can affect the lower frequencies and therefore should be captured, ignoring the fact that they already affected the lower frequencies before capture. This guy knows it better than I do. https://xiph.org/video/
  3. Windows on a Mac works just like... Windows. I run Windows on my 2015 iMac 90% of the time and Cakewalk is fine.
  4. I know this has been broached before, but never as a topic title right out there where it's obvious. I'm talking about the ability to enlarge or diminish the size of Cakewalk's interface elements. This is a feature of several DAWs: Live, Bitwig, Tracktion, Mulab, and a couple of others. To me, it's almost a must-have.
  5. I agree that there’s a lot of stuff in not much space. Also that the stop head is outsized.
  6. I think that's a very, very good idea. As a simple switch. Exclusive arm and if you aren't holding shift, it will disarm any other tracks that are disarmed. Alternately, holding shift as it stands now to disable all other tracks.
  7. I asked for it as an option, not as the default behavior. All the DAWs that have this offer non-exclusive arm as well. If you're recording a live band, this would obviously be a pain in the toukus. When you're recording on your own, a track at a time, it's easier. At least for me.
  8. Maybe start another thread for this so the devs see it?
  9. I like the lens functionality quite a bit, as well as that of screensets. Once you have it sussed out, it's fine. My only comment has been that there's a certain amount of overlap, and that "Lenses", "Views", and "Screensets" are conceptually inconsistent and not particularly accurate. I'm pretty sure I would've reached understanding a lot quicker with something such as "Overviews" (Global view?), "Views", and "View Sets", for instance. There's quite likely something better. Not a big deal. Just throwing it out there.
  10. Note that this doesn't make the font any larger, but it makes it significantly sharper.
  11. I'd like to see the entire interface made scalable, though I don't expect to see that anytime soon. What I've done is increase the Windows DPI setting as you have which makes the tiny text not quite so tiny, but as you have noted, it's still hard on older eyes. I wish Windows had per application scaling. But I don't find the Time Ruler any worse than anything else. Have you tried setting the hiDPI scaling setting?
  12. Ah, then I did this myself. I'm finally getting it, I think. Lenses can actually hide stuff as well as remember the windows layout if you so choose. Screensets are just arrangements of the views, yes? Sort of a sub-lens, though if I remember correctly, they were implemented first. I'm not a huge fan of the language involved here. Obviously, I didn't find it particularly intuitive or consistent and there seems to some overlap. After that, it was all me mucking around without reading the users guide, though I did a bit after I started all this. Part of my review process, though this is not for a review.
  13. I guess you could call it undock and close, but all I really want to do is hide it. I actually prefer it docked, I just found that I could get rid of it by undocking it and closing it. Maybe there's another way? I find most DAWs massive overkill in terms of features and visuals so I like to hide as much of it as I can. Collapsed doesn't count as hidden in my mind. As to the screensets, I know there's supposed to be a module in the control bar, but I don't see it. See the attachment. What am I missing?
  14. I think I described it pretty well, but... 1. I open the docking menu and select undock. 2. When the window/view is undocked, I use the close window button to close it and it goes away. 3. To bring it back, I go to the Views menu and select the appropriate view. I have not used screensets (shouldn't it be view sets?). I don't even know where they are.
  15. I personally like the original suggestion. The folder as a bus. You don't have to use the functionality if you don't wish to, but it's there is you want it. KISS.
