    2019.07 Feature Overview

    @HappyRon Hill Are you sure you are not accidentally double-clicking while holding down the SHIFT key? That is the only situation where it would zoom. You can press ALT+Z to return to the previous zoom level.

    2019.07 Feature Overview

    @winkpain There is an error in the release notes. There is currently no Help Module content for ProChannel. The fix is that pressing F1 when the ProChannel EQ Fly Out is open (and a control has focus) will open the correct online help topic ("QuadCurve Equalizer module"). F1 would previously open the Track view help topic. We will update the release notes. Are you still not seeing Help Module content for clips?

    2019.07 Feature Overview

    Correct, the issue is that the updated Help Module files were not copied to the user folder. We'll address this for the next release. Holding down the SHIFT key while starting CbB will repersonalize the settings.

    First Cubase Project and...

    Thanks for sharing. Was this made with Cakewalk, or did you mean to post to another forum as the topic title implies?
  8. This topic is being locked. We are investigating the reported persistence issue and are obviously interested in fixing any known issues. If anyone has a consistently reproducible recipe, please contact support directly at support@cakewalk.com. As far as VST2 -> VST3 plug-in replacement goes, most plug-in vendors do not support persistence transfer, so the plug-in state will always be lost when replacing a VST2 with a VST3. Thanks for any help in getting to the bottom of this issue!

    Recording the metronome

    You can record the audio metronome to a track. This may be useful, for example, if you plan to work on the project in another DAW, or if you simply want more control over the metronome signal. By recording the metronome to a track, you can export the click track as a separate track when you export individual track stems. The first step is to create a new stereo bus that is dedicated to the metronome. Most of the default Cakewalk project templates already contain a Metronome bus. If your project already contains a Metronome bus, you can skip directly to step 5. If your project doesn’t contain a Metronome bus, go to Insert > Stereo Bus to insert a new stereo bus, then rename the new bus to “Metronome”. Click the Metronome icon in the Transport module to show the metronome settings (or go to Edit > Preferences > Project - Metronome). In the Preference dialog box, select Use Audio Metronome, and make sure the Output field is assigned to the Metronome bus. Click OK to close the Preferences dialog box. Right-click the Metronome bus in the Track view or Console view and select Insert Send > New Aux Track. The Metronome bus is now sending its signal to the new Aux track. Arm the new Aux track for recording and disable Input Echo . Make sure the metronome is enabled during recording (press F3 to enable/disable the record metronome). Click the Record button in the Transport module (or press R) to begin recording. The signal from the Metronome bus is recorded to the Aux track. When you are done recording the metronome, click the Stop button in the Transport module (or press SPACEBAR), then disarm the Aux track . Note: If you re-arrange the project or insert meter changes or tempo changes after the metronome has been recorded, you should re-record the metronome in order to be synchronized with the timeline. Post recording: Disable the original record metronome (press F3). This way, the metronome will only be played by the recorded Aux track. If you don’t need to record any additional metronome signals, delete or disable the Aux send on the Metronome bus. You can even mute or delete the entire Metronome bus if it is no longer needed. Assign the Aux track’s Input control to None. Finally, rename the Aux track to a more descriptive name, such as “Metronome”. That's it! You can now mute/unmute the Metronome track as needed. In summary: Create a Metronome bus and send it to a new Aux track. Record the Aux track. Mute the original metronome. Mute/unmute the Aux track when a click track is needed.

    Drum Replacer

    Drum Replacer is a drum replacement tool that lets you replace or reinforce individual drum sounds in existing audio tracks. For example, you can replace only the snare drum sound in a drum track, while leaving all other drum sounds intact. Drum Replacer is available as a free download in BandLab Assistant. For more information about Drum Replacer, click here.

    Aux Tracks & Patch Points

    A patch point is an internal routing path used to route audio from a track output, bus output, or send to an audio track input. The virtual inputs can then be input monitored or recorded. You can think of patch points as virtual patch cables. To streamline the workflow for patch points, Cakewalk supports Aux tracks. Aux tracks are used to receive audio from other tracks, buses, or sends. Stereo buses are traditionally used for sub-grouping and effect sends, but it is possible to use Aux tracks for the same purpose. Aux tracks have the added advantage of being able to record the incoming audio (mono or stereo), and you can arrange Aux tracks adjacent to other tracks in the Track pane or Console view. For more information about Aux Tracks and Patch Points, click here.

    Resize Multiple Buses Similtaneously, Like Tracks

    If you give focus to the Bus pane, you can use the CTRL+UP/DOWN keys to resize all buses simultaneously. To ensure they have the same size, start by pressing CTRL+UP until all buses are minimized, then press CTRL+DOWN to make them larger. You can also press the F key to evenly size all buses so they fill the Bus pane (this also works for tracks when the Track pane has focus).

    How To Delete Markers?

    There are several ways to delete markers: Click (and keep the mouse button pressed) a marker in the time ruler, then press the DELETE key. Drag in the time ruler to select the markers you want to delete, then go to Edit > Delete Special and only select Markers. Note that this only works if clips overlap the selected time region. Go to Views > Markers to open the Markers view, select the markers you want to delete, then press the DELETE key. More info about markers can be found here.
