    Sound on Sound Review

    @Alan Tubbs Might you yourself have any clout with regards to this, as you're a regular contributor to the magazine in question? And great job with all your reviews in SOS, by the way - the Cakewalk ones and all the others!

    Duplicate clips on grid.

    That's also a nice option that I use regularly, but a Live-style CTRL+D duplication would be even faster. πŸ˜‰
  3. Thanks for the great tip, Promidi! I know there is a MIDI CC standard, but the parameters a MIDI CC controls are often unique per project anyway, at least for me. Any given parameter on any given VST synth could be MIDI learned to (almost) any MIDI CC number, so pre-defining global parameter names is not really feasible. Assigning a name to an envelope would probably be most convenient when creating the envelope.

    Duplicate clips on grid.

    I think implementing a duplicate ("CTRL + D") function would be awesome! If you're curious about why this is needed and wonder why it's faster than drag & drop, please see the demonstration of the Duplicate feature in Live below: Basic Editing in Ableton Live https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z8DvIvoiMLI&t=10m28s

    On the fence with Cakewalk *SOLVED*

    @SynthManDan Really glad to hear it's solved and that Cakewalk is now stable! Maybe add "[SOLVED]" to thread title?
  6. When using many MIDI CC envelopes it can sometimes be difficult to tell them apart. It would be nice if custom names could be assigned to MIDI CC envelopes, see suggested screenshot #2. Thanks for a great product!

    Please check out Noel's reply now that you got the attention of the head honcho himself!
  8. Maybe try some other compressor? There are numerous nice free ones available nowadays, like TDR Kotelnikov, although I'm not sure which offer sidechaining possibilities.
  9. I have an MK1 S49 but I've barely used the KK plugin to be honest... What does it mean for me as a Cakewalk/Sonar user that the MK1 has MCU support? Will transport buttons work without any extra configuration when using the Komplete Kontrol plugin?

    Is Skylight interface getting obsolete?

    I like the Skylight interface, but at the same time I think it might certainly be possible to streamline it a little, make it a little more space efficient. I would say that the switch to dark interfaces for creative software on the desktop was caused by – at least it correlates well with – the proliferation of bigger and bigger LCD/LED screens. I myself loathed dark interfaces and couldn't understand why people liked them... until I got to work with big flat-screens. Now, where did I put those shades...? 😎

    Hotfix for 2019.03 available

    Thanks for the heads-up! Just one question about the release info: What does "asynchronous bounce" refer to? Compared to the recent fast bounce optimizations? That were introduced in 2019.03 but rolled back in the Mar 26 hotfix?)
  12. At least in good 'ol Sonar Platinum it most definitely also moves automation. Just as for Lynn, ripple edit was a key addition for my needs!
  13. I have never had sidechain crashes (in Sonar Platinum) during many years of use, so I can't help you out unfortunately. @Noel Borthwick - as we are discussing sidechaining: could you guys please consider implementing a simple dropdown for selecting a sidechain input on the instrument track itself? Like Logic has had for years and like Cubase 10 just implemented. Thanks & keep up the great work!

    view multiple plugin or synth windows?

    You can also hold CTRL when double clicking a track name, to temporarily force opening a new VST/VSTi window even if you have recycling enabled. Handy!

    Sample Preview Enhancement - Browser

    What!? No, you're kidding, I gotta check that out! Thanks scook! πŸ˜€ EDIT: While I'm using the keyboard shortcuts, I'm waiting for buttons and/or indicators to make it easier to see the current setting.
