  1. It provides a copy of the audio track that is frozen, so you can manipulate it further. You can also just copy the frozen clip to another audio track and it will remain there, even after unfreezing the original source track. Sorry for the late response. I took a break from these forums for a while.
  2. I have a particular use case and I'll do my best to explain it. I'm working on synthestration and my track structure looks as such: a Track folder with a bunch of instrument tracks in it Track folders labeled with a "version" of the score I'm working on. within these version folders are MIDI tracks that correspond to the available instrument tracks in the "instruments" folder. I make big changes to the score periodically and I essentially just duplicate the "version folder" which contains the midi tracks and continue from there. Yes, I could keep these version iterations in their own project files, but I like to have quick access to the previous versions. Loading in a ton of sample libraries in/out just to hear previous version, is not ideal. Also, I like being able to compare notes and harmonic structures, all in the same project. And midi data is small. This shouldn't be a big deal at all. The Challenge I'm constantly soloing out different groups of midi tracks in order to hear how they're playing with each other. When I solo a midi track(s), it works exactly as you'd expect. But when I unsolo the midi tracks, I get no sound, because the source Instrument track remains solo'd, but there are no corresponding midi tracks to feed the instrument track. I have to go to the console bar and click the solo button to un-solo everything and now I'm back to normal. This is unideal. What I'd like is that if you solo a midi track or group of midi tracks that feed an instrument track, upon un-soloing the last midi track that feeds the instrument track, both the last midi track AND the instrument are no longer solo'd. This would have a much more pleasant work flow. Here is a clip to show the issue directly: clip.MP4
  3. Scrolling / filtering to every context menu, would be great.
  4. Okay. One, you don't need to be a dick. Two, I made a mistake and thought that was a volume automation line and it's really the midi pitch wheel. Three, that's not what the OP is asking for. He's not asking to automate the midi pitch controller, he's asking to pitch bend audio clips.
  5. Will_Kaydo, All you're doing is automating the volume, not pitch.
  6. I wasn't aware of the Inline PRV, so thank you for that. For everyone else, you get to it by changing your track filter to "notes". Unfortunately, this isn't a great workaround for me for a few reasons I'm doing a lot with midi CC automation as well and it doesn't appear that you can lanes for CC / velocities. I'd hate to have to maximize random midi tracks regular in order to see the notes well. I'm doing a bit of scoring and I really need to see groups of midi notes from other tracks to see where harmonic structure lies between multiple instruments. But that was a good suggestion. I appreciate it.
  7. There have been major improvements to Cakewalk lately. The Arranger and now Articulation Maps is INCREDIBLE. but, I can't stress this enough: Having an arranger track that is not visible within the PRV window is a seriously downside. Especially if I want to use an arranger track essentially as a chord track. I've mentioned this before, but I'm posting it again, since the latest version still lacks it. This would drastically improve the usability of the arranger track for composers. Even if I use PRV docked in the multi-dock and don't maximize it, it doesn't line up with the track view, making that not a workable work around. Please, Please, Please implement the option to turn on the arranger track in the PRV.
  8. Changing this to latch has fixed most of my grievances with write automation on plugins when I'm using the mouse. It's still not 100% amazing, but it's like 80% and I'll take that over "WTF is this garbage", any day
  9. I made a selection somewhere in the middle of my project (control-A , then set the selection start and endpoints) and then on the video ruler right-clicked and exported video. H.264, quick audio bounce. What I got was the audio from the selection (middle of the project - correct) and the video was the entire original video (incorrect).
  10. We can only hope. @Noel Borthwick, We still love you. But we'd love you more if you added this
  11. Super Simple. Instead of having to bring up the track properties (right side), to change the write mode, it should be in the write automation icon right-click menu as well:
  12. O. M. G. Once again, whenever I think I know damn near everything about cakewalk, I learn something new.. this is awesome. Thank you!
  13. Simple. Just like how the Clip FX bin icon is always in the upper right of a clip, I'd like the clip title to always be visible on the upper left. Example: I have zoomed in and am missing the clip title: If I scroll a little left: I shouldn't have to scroll to the start of a clip to see its name. In my workflows (film) I do a LOT of clip naming as there are tons of tracks and samples split all over the place. thanks!
  14. It's funny cause I just tried to do this and couldn't and was like... that's silly. +1
  15. You're not missing anything. It's been like this always. Luckily I don't change the metronome often. I just switch between cowbell and beeps depending on the content and what the musician wants. One time I set a custom metronome sound to a chicken. That was fun
  16. I filed a feature regarding "smoothing" out or simplifying automation nodes, for a very similar reason. I don't recall mine ever jumping like this. My envelopes nodes from when I had a control surface were always connected, just way too busy, so I'd have to smooth them out. I have notices that the snap settings seem to affect things in weird ways sometimes. Try turning snap on / off and see if the same thing happens.
  17. I mean this with complete respect, I have no idea what you're asking for. It looks like you've custom colored a bunch of clips and you want an option to toggle clip colors on and off quickly?
  18. I think there are DJ tools that do this, like Serato, but I'm pretty sure Serato is AU only. I really wanted to get there time and pitch plugin, but it's just for protools... meh.
  19. This might be difficult to implement in a way where the quality is satisfactory to you. I like the idea though. What I do today to do this kind of thing is to use Cableguys Shaperbox 2, specifically TimeShaper2. It's some of the coolest sound design tools I've picked up for certain things. Pretty powerful.
  20. Dude. Chillax. You're taking this way too seriously. No one is being condescending and arrogant, except for kind of, you in your response. We're well aware of soundfonts and their uses. I used them heavily way back when and still use them today with software like MuseScore. My original comment was in jest, because for the most part, soundfonts are not a powerful sound design tool compared by modern tools, but are still useful for certain things. Take care. I wish you the best.
  21. So it looks like you've frozen a bunch of tracks which sets the background to blue-ish. Is that specifically what you're asking for? is to have better color contrast between the wave form and the blue background set when tracks are frozen?
  22. The wheel is significantly more useful :P. I was mostly messing with the OP, but I am curious as to what TFS is.
  23. People still use SoundFonts? You can load them in Rapture or Dimension, I believe. What is TFS? Are you saying you want version control for projects? If so, just save a new version regular and give it a new number. That's what most of us do.
  24. Looking at your other post, it appears you want to control wet and dry signal independently. The way this has been achieved many times before is to use a pre-fade send to an aux bus (or now - an aux track). Dry track -> pre-fade send to wet track / bus You have control over both.
  25. Are you wanting to add a send on an audio track and route it to the input on another audio track? If so, that's not an insert, which has an entirely different use. I'll accept that it's close enough to a side-chain, that the term works. If that's what you're looking for, what's wrong with aux tracks? If this isn't what you're looking for, I'm gonna need a better description as to what exact routing you're asking for and why. Maybe draw it out.
