  1. I just downloaded the 2021.09 early release and have encountered something that I am not sure about. When attempting to export a file using the new "Export Audio" page, when I go to "Choose Export Location" and choose the designated folder that I want to export to, I notice that none of the files that are currently in that folder are showing up. It just says "No items match your search". Is this a settings issues or am I missing something? Prior to the update I could always see the other files in the folder which was essential in order to make sure I am not duplicating something. I can go to the regular Windows File Explorer and see what is in the folder but that is inconvenient when I am used to automatically being able to see that information during the exporting process. Anyone else noticing this or having this issue? Danny C.
  2. I downloaded the "early release" this morning. The new features seem to be working fine, however, when I attempt to export files in either .wav or .mp3 format the program crashes and instantly closes. I have opened several different projects and attempted to export a file and it happens every time. I have used Cakewalk almost daily since around 1993 as part of how I make my living and this has not been happening at all until today when I installed the new update. I recorded two full soundtracks today for a client with numerous VST plugins used in each song. When I did the final mix on each project and attempted to export it, it crashed every time. It looks like I will having to do a "rollback" to the previous version until this is fixed or until I can figure out what is going on. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Additional info about this issue: Today I downloaded and installed the "Official Release" and the problem was still there. However, I have isolated what seems to be causing the crash. I noticed that when I bounce a mix down to a stereo track and then export it, it exports fine. But....when I type in a name for the track and then export it....it crashes. After more experimenting, I have concluded that if I include a hyphen in the track name, that seems to cause the program to crash when exporting. I can remove the hyphen, and it will export fine. So.....how to I get this information to the Bakers at Cakewalk so that they can determine if this is a an actual program bug or if it is something in my system?
  3. Is this the best place to offer feedback to the developers on the Version 2021.04 update? If not, can you tell me where I should make this post? If so, here is one little suggestion. Can you give us the option of turning off the "Custom Theme Incompatibility" notice that pops up each time you open Cakewalk. I realize this happens when you are using a custom theme....which I am doing. There doesn't seem to be any problems with the compatibility of the theme I am using. This notice is not causing a problem, it's just annoying to have to see it and have to click on it every time you open Cakewalk. For a split second it always makes you think that there is a major problem when the program is opening. I have searched through the Preferences section and do not see an option to turn it off. There is an option to turn off "Show Project Load Notifications" but that does not have any affect on it. Anyway....this is just my little request/observation.
  4. THANK YOU for posting the solution to this issue!! I just started encountering this same issue with my sustain pedal. After an hour or so of trying to diagnose the problem, I was just about to uninstall and re-install Cakewalk-Bandlab because the issue was not showing up on any plugins when ran in Stand-Alone mode, nor was it happening in an older version of Sonar X2 that I happened to still have installed. After seeing the post about checking to see if the "Enabled" button was ticked on the Preferences-Keybinding page, I remembered that I had ticked the "Enable" box a couple of days ago when creating some key bindings. There needs to be a little "Information Note" on the "Help" page that notifies you that ticking the "Enable" button will cause this issue if "Controller" is turned on in the "MIDI 'Shift' Options" column. I've been a Cakewalk user for over 25 years and had never encountered this. I felt like there had to be a simple solution to this but I totally missed it on this one. Thanks again for the helpful answer!
  5. Currently in the Mix Console view there are only two options for the track width. It would be great if there were more options or a "Fit To Screen" option. Often times I find that with the the normal width, all of the tracks don't fit on the screen, yet when I choose to "Narrow All Strips", it shrinks them to the point where all of the tracks are visible but there is also some left over unused real estate on the screen. It would be great to have some other options there. Would anyone else find this useful? Still loving Cakewalk!
  6. I agree with this request. It would also be nice to have it so that if you load an icon into a track, you could have the option of it automatically loading that icon into the synth rack as well. Currently, when you load an icon to a track, it will automatically load it to the mixing console, why not let it also load it to the synth rack in order to save the extra step of having to insert it separately?

    Icon Question

    Is there a setting anywhere within Cakewalk so that when you choose an icon for the synth rack, it will automatically update the icon in the track properties section for that track......or vice versa? Currently, if you choose an icon in the track properties area for a track, it automatically updates it in the console view....which is convenient. It would be nice if it would also do that for the synth rack as opposed to having to make two separate selections in order to accomplish it. Does anyone else ever find a need for this when using the synth rack? Where do we go to make suggestions to the design team to consider this (or other ideas) for future updates. If I am missing something as to how to accomplish this little action, I would love to know the secret! Danny C.
  8. Please ignore my previous post. I figured it out. I was trying to import it as a Color Scheme rather than a Theme. I had also downloaded it to my Sonar Themes file rather than Cakewalk.
  9. This theme looks great! I downloaded it but I notice that it is a .sth file as opposed to the standard .clr file that is usually used when importing colors to Cakewalk. How do I open or import a theme that is a .sth file? Sorry if this is a dumb question with an obvious answer.
