  1. Great, thanks Noel. PM sent! 👍 Let me know if you need any more info or project file for repro.
  2. @Noel Borthwick I reached out to u-He about this bug, and they said this: What is the best way to proceed? Is it "easier" for you to look at / debug this from an integrated DAW loading perspective, or should I ask u-He to continue? Another thought: could my problem with u-He Diva be something similar to the u-He Presswerk VST process call issue that you discussed a couple of weeks ago? (Although in that discussion you specifically mentioned the VST3 SDK, but my problem occurs with the VST2 version. I haven't tested the VST3 version.) Thanks!
  3. Hehe, actually I don't! I always tend to lag at least 1-2 releases behind, just for that reason... I let other be the guinea pigs, so I can focus on making music with as few interruptions as possible. I also agree with your point that this new paradigm of releasing software very often can be a bit troublesome (this is about software and apps in general, not just Cakewalk). Sure, bugs are fixed more often but new bugs (along with new features) are also introduced very often. For music software specifically and an interrupt-free studio, this constant updating and potential bug-hunting is not really a good thing. But I love the Cakewalk updates and features we get and mainly... I love reading release notes!
  4. I love reading release notes... it's like Christmas (or equivalent). I wish I could read release notes every day! 🤓
  5. The soft synth Diva by u-He forgets the quality settings when closing and opening a session... should I report this to u-He directly or is there some Cakewalk-specific debugging that only the Bakers can assist with? I'm running the latest Diva (v1.4.4.9709) and Cakewalk 2021.01. It's the Accuracy and Offline Acc settings that never save, and always seem to reset back to Great and Same: Thanks for a great DAW!
  6. Hey all! Is it possible to bind a keyboard shortcut for the MIDI Transform Tool in the PRV? I can't seem to find the option...? 🙄 Thanks!
  7. I emailed them about it... and I urge you guys to do so too. Let's show them there is a user base! I think SOS at least has a Cakewalk review on their radar now... Keeping my fingers crossed.
  8. Thank you for your ambitious input and sorry for my late reply. Oh, it can get a bit complicated then with themes and colors and different overrides. And thanks for the input about Track Separators, I had never seen that in the menu. 😃 I will check out the clip colors post as well. I had my first stint at theming this weekend and I can see why you guys do it... it's addictive! It's easy to forget about the music... 😂
  9. This would be so nice! 😀 I see two different options: To automatically route tracks and instruments placed in a folder to a specified bus (it would be a setting of that folder) To have some kind of bus/folder hybrid tracks. I think I would prefer the first option. It would save time and it would ensure consistency in routing, so you don't forget. Folder-based routing FTW! 👍
  10. 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!
  11. 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).
  12. 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? 🤔
  13. 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! ❤️😀
  14. 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.
  15. 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... 😉
  16. Interesting, thanks. I can see how that slipped between through the cracks. 😃 Keep up the great work, Cakewalk rocks! 🎵
  17. 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".
  18. 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?
  19. 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. 😬)
  20. 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?
  21. 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? 😄
  22. 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... 🙂
  23. 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?
