    The box in the Take Lane header where you can take notes

    FWIW, when I originally did the Polar Blue theme a few years back I also exported a matching *.clr file to cover the things I couldn't get the way I wanted using the Theme Editor. Just throwing it out there...

    Theme easy on eyes (update)

    Are they the same shade but a little lighter?

    Theme easy on eyes (update)

    Nothing specific really, just something brighter that still goes with your overall scheme. That is just personal preference though.

    Theme easy on eyes (update)

    I like to see multiple meters clearly at a glance, so I'm not a big fan off the off-white on grey in the Track View. But the light blue CV color stands out nicely.

    Here ya go....

    Theme easy on eyes (update)

    FWIW, I am seeing solid light blue meters in Console View/Track Inspector, and segmented white meters in Track View.

    2019.07 Feedback

    Ditto. I tend to "arrange" a bit more than I comp, so the ability to freely select and edit away is fantastic. It just feels better.

    vst scan runtime error

  9. No worries! 😊
  10. They seem to be OK here using both the original and your updated 2019 version. Any chance they're being overidden at the Colors level? Selecting anything other than the Normal preset can darken those, even using Bright... as counter-intuitive as that seems.

    vst scan runtime error

    What are your VST scan paths in Preferences set to right now? Whatever they, browse to those folders using Windows File Explorer and see which .dll files exist - those are the files that the VST scanner will attempt to scan. The one above is under a /Dell folder so it's unclear why that would be included as a folder to scan. Like scook mentioned previously, start with limited paths and get those working properly, then build up from there.

    Theme easy on eyes (update)

    FWIW, I'm seeing the same thing. I exported what I think is the right item to a *.png, and according to GIMP the color's RGB and hex code do match up to a pink variation. FWIW, the hex code is FF7F7F

    My wife passed away

    So sorry to hear that, Ken. Your Cakewalk family is thinking about you.
  14. Loving the new Smart Tool options! It's so much easier to fly around when arranging without needing to specifically hit on the upper/lower halves of clips. And that's just the beginning...

    Polar Blue 2019 Cakewalk Theme (updated 2019.07)

    Thanks, Colin! I look forward to giving it a go in CbB.
  16. Yep! In November of 2017 it all fell apart. Yet, here we are in May of 2019 and SONAR Cakewalk is going strong, better than ever. P5 really does seem unlikely, but with Bandlab ya never know...
  17. Plausible deniability What? It could happen. πŸ˜‰
  18. I guess I'm in the minority - I voted for UI/UX. Things like nested folder tracks + CV folders, clip gain visuals, take lane sizing/zoom, etc.. The recently added indicator for Ripple Editing was one of those UI things that was so needed and so appreciated. Oh... and happy birthday, Cakewalk! You sure have grown up fast. 😊

    Problem with Cakewalk Theme Editor

    FWIW, for images that include text, you can try using your image editor to add real text over the image's version - I've done that in the past. You just need to be careful that the new text covers the original, but otherwise it can be easier and less tedious that recoloring pixel by pixel.

    PRV Controller Pane Not Labeled Right?

    Seems OK here... I'm seeing the typical values for pitch-bend (Wheel). This is CbB though, not Sonar.

    Is Adam Neely too geeky?

    I don't post often in this part of the world, but... that was pretty cool! Interesting stuff. I liked all of it, but the last section about compositions based on small intonation adjustments really stood out.

    Assault! ~The Impending Malediction~

    Some of the sounds do seem a bit a bit dated, but compositionally I liked it. Although... I do think the arrangement could use more breathing room. The musicians would have been exhausted and the choir would have keeled over half-way through. 😏

    'An Awkward Silence'

    Loved it... so many tasty lines along the way, on multiple instruments, and the mix is perfect for the song.

    I finally finished my album!

    Just had a listen to the whole album while I worked... loved all of it. Everything was so well done, from songwriting to performance to mix. It's got lots of feel and a nice final polish.

    Take Lanes state Today

    A little late to the party, but since I do use clip envelopes fairly often... if you have Take Lanes expanded, try Ctrl+Clicking on the clip gain envelope - that should activate it. Although, Shift+Click does seem like the right gesture since it works in the parent track to activate the envelope or the clip. Also, you can use Ctrl+Drag on a clip with no gain envelope to create a new one on-the-fly.
