  1. Whoa, thanks! I have indeed! How could I have missed that! I, eh... suck! 😂 For years, I have had F2 mapped to "Loop On/Off" and F3 to "Set loop times to selection"... which have been super-handy for me, but I suppose I set a trap for myself there as well. This forum rocks!
  2. Thanks! Although the behavior is not really consistent: one cannot double click on the Gain number below the pot in the Inspector to set it via keyboard (like you can double click on the Volume number below the fader).
  3. I've been using Cakewalk for many years, and just now realized... is it not possible to enter numbers for Volume and Gain using the keyboard? (I am mainly talking about the Track View here.) EDIT: I figured out you CAN double click below the fader in the Inspector... but I am after doing this in the Track View. Besides, Gain is not exposed in the Inspector? Have I missed something? 🤔
  4. I consider myself a total keyboard shortcut nerd, but I have actually never used or known about CTRL + D in Windows... great to learn! I've always deleted using the Delete button. 🤓 (Very anecdotal, I know.) But I do agree with the person who wrote that CTRL+D has become more or less DAW standard for Duplicate. One can always change it. I would love some more focus on keyboard shortcuts in Cakewalk: improving loading speed of the Options dialog, adding more mouseover popups with currently assigned shortcuts and adding several non-bindable functions (UnSolo All & Archive Track). I'm loving the commitment and engagement for Cakewalk these days! It's been an enormous increase in a couple years, incredible! ❤️😀
  5. Can you still insert synths via the top menu "Insert / Soft Synths"? I haven't tried the 2021.04 EA myself, but I think that was @greg54's problem, that he was not able to.
  6. Thanks for this theme, it's great! ❤️ I've been using Mercury for many years, but realized this theme increases visibility for many things, including automation. And the flat look also helps readability of the FX names in the FX bin! 😃 Is it time-consuming or difficult to learn how to make personal modifications to it with the Theme Editor? I would like to try slightly less dark lines between the tracks in the track view, and also have less saturated colors (I think I'd like pastel) for clips, for example. Edit: In projects where track colors are set, the clip colors don't match the colors set for the track. Would this be technically possible to achieve? It would make more sense... 😉
  7. Interesting, thanks. I can see how that slipped between through the cracks. 😃 Keep up the great work, Cakewalk rocks! 🎵
  8. I agree, I have also been missing the ability to have a keyboard binding for "UnSolo All Tracks" for years. 😅 I also miss being able to bind "Archive Track".
  9. Great, good luck! 👍 No, unfortunately I don't have a repro... but give me a couple of years and I might! 😂 I look forward to testing the 2021.04 final, to see if I still get issues with the preview bus suddenly changing. Just out of nerd curiosity, what kind of error in the code - on a high level - caused the bug that made already listened to sounds always play through the same preview bus?
  10. Exactly, it's stored per-project. But what kind of circumstances do you think could cause it to suddenly change to another bus within a project? It changes for me occasionally, even when I know I haven't added or deleted any buses within the project... (And this behaviour/problem then obviously exposed the abovementioned bug for me. 😬)
  11. FANTASTIC, thank you for this fix! ❤️😄 It bugged me for years, and I've been pestering forum members about it. 😂Then I finally figured out how to reproduce it, and reported it to support. I have also noticed that the selected Preview bus changes now and then when opening projects... it will be interesting to see if this fix has any bearings on that problem as well. Or maybe it's something else?
  12. Disclaimer: I am not an expert on this subject. 😂 I agree with @msmcleod. For example, I am using a Roland DP-10 sustain pedal, which has half-pedal (or "continuous pedal") capabilities, i.e. it puts out a continuous stream of values from 0-127 instead of just on/off. (See this Gearspace discussion for examples.) Of course, your piano instrument has to support half/continuous pedaling as well, which many do, nowadays. That said, when you don't need CC64 to be continuous, it might be nice if it was possible to have another "view" of the automation lane where it's only possible to draw and display 0 or 127. Maybe something for a future feature? 😄
  13. Hm, I agree with @Rogério, right click lassoing IS tricky when nodes are close to a track's top or bottom. 🤔 So how about this suggestion:💡 When one is right click-lassoing and the mouse pointer reaches the top or bottom of the track, the pointer would be stopped from moving to adjacent tracks (= confined to stay within the track where you started dragging)? Maybe this behavior could be enabled with a keyboard modifier and/or a specific tool? One could easily start from the bottom and also easily catch all nodes at maximum height, without worrying about including stuff in the track above. It would be a lot faster than CTRL adding nodes separately... 🙂
  14. Hm, did I understand correctly: you only want to copy the 127 and 100 nodes, but nothing in between? If the answer is yes: how should Cakewalk know what to put in between, what kind of transition should be placed between them? Edit: By the way, how did you get the red "Automation" label on this topic?
