  1. Remember that keyboard shortcuts are essential for power users and to reduce RSI risk. ☺️ Promidi wrote earlier that he had some issues with the new keyboard shortcut for the tempo track: I think keyboard shortcuts get too little love in general... (for example, "Archive Track" is still not yet bindable... πŸ™„) Excited about this new release, keep it up! πŸ‘
  2. Thanks for chiming in! I actually set the interleave on the bus to mono as well... That's what is so weird: I had mono on everything from the source material, the channel interleave and (a single) bus interleave all the way to the destination track and with no plugins in between, yet the bounce generates a volume difference. πŸ₯΄ I managed to reproduce it in a new empty project in Cakewalk 2021.01. When I find the time, I think I will post a short video here, hopefully the Bakers will accept it as a bug. ☺️
  3. I just lost a couple of hours to this weird +3 dB mono file issue when bouncing mono tracks... πŸ˜’ In the Cakewalk documentation quoted above, they mention "data interleave". What is that? Is it something else than the track interleave? My files are mono, my track interleaves are mono and my bounce to track channel format is set to mono... and still I get an unwanted +3dB boost... πŸ™„ I think Cakewalk doesn't really like working with mono files?
  4. Ahh, I thought it was just me! πŸ˜‚I've been interested in learning and trying Live, but within 10 minutes I felt GUI so inflexible... Live seems to be designed from the ground up for a single (laptop!) monitor setup.
  5. You're right - it's not really the same thing. To be honest, I recently made a similar request myself, of building-in the chord analyzer that already exists as a MIDI plugin. But thanks to your helpful fellow forum members, light has been shed on other tools (other than the CAL scripts that the OP mentioned) that can provide workarounds and that are indeed available out of the box. πŸ™‚
  6. I think a lot of workflow-focused changes are long overdue in Cakewalk... really looking forward to small enhancements like these! And man, I need to go make more music instead of hanging around on these forums all day... πŸ˜‚
  7. Good idea! I wouldn't mind either way! 😎 I like the control bar module concept a lot, but it should be fully customizable, basically down to individual button level if possible, like the Microsoft Office ribbon. An example is the new button for Select track envelopes with clips – a button I have been wanting for years! – it's only visible in the Large version of the Select module. But the large version of the Select module is HUGE, and I need other things more. So it would be great to have a fully customizable control bar, as close to button level as possible. πŸ€“ I think the Select track envelopes with clips button actually would be more logical to have in the Track View button bar, next to the Crossfade and Ripple Edit buttons...
  8. I'm sorry, I think I picked a misleading video in general. πŸ˜€ No, I'm not after a chord track in this case. Logic has a input chord analyzer permanently living in the button bar, that always analyzes chords coming in at MIDI inputs. It is as if the Cakewalk MFX Chord Analyzer would be permanently available in the Control Bar in Cakewalk... which is what I'm after. Quick, and always available. @Kevin Perry Exactly, it's great, I would just like it to be permanently visible as a module in the Control Bar. πŸ˜€ Check out my concept art for this feature:
  9. Exactly, I do that a lot too. πŸ‘ So custom MIDI CC names would have to be visible there as well.
  10. Thanks for the tip @msmcleod that's something I had never realized/considered! πŸ˜€ It would be awesome though to be able to rename the "mouseover name" of MIDI CC's, since I rarely expand the automation lanes... I usually edit them in the main track using the Edit Filter. And it would also take effect in the menu: But still a great tip, thanks! πŸ‘
  11. Yes, there is: scroll up to see the first reply in this thread by scook. πŸ˜† Scook mentioned (and linked to) the included MIDI plugins you insert on MIDI tracks, they work well. Velocity is good to inject more life to hihat and percussive patterns and Quantize can also do randomness, and it's also one of the many ways to apply swing in Cakewalk. But I agree it would be a quicker workflow to implement some humanization features directly into the PRV and/or Inspector for MIDI tracks. It would be especially nice to just have a slider for Swing. 🎢
  12. @Promidi Is it something like this you're after? πŸ˜€ Remembering what CC52 or CC38 does can be hard... πŸ˜‚
  13. Ah, thanks for pointing out my mistake, I have now updated with the correct image. πŸ‘ If you're not convinced, check out this Logic Pro X that demonstrates the live chord display. Simple and brilliant! 😁
  14. I am more of an electronic musician, so I don't have experience or opinions on the sources you mention... but check out some articles and tutorials on Sound on Sound.
