  1. Open the project, go Preferences --> Project --> MIDI --> Other Options . Tick the Zero Controllers When Play Stops.
  2. Thanks a lot Mr Mark... I appreciate that. I'm glad to help the dev team make Cakewalk better 🙂 Regards.
  3. Thanks for replying, Mr Mark! I believe it has worked before 🙂. I found the transpose problem when I recently open some old project files from Sonar 8.5 era. Some MIDI tracks routed to TTS-1 had "key +" value saved in the file. So, I knew it was working back then. When I play the project in CbB, those tracks are out of tunes with the rest of the tracks routed to different instruments. I tried to re-open the same file in Sonar 8.5.3 (I still have it installed in my DAW), and the "key +" works the way it should do. The tracks with "Key +" are played transposed and in tune with the rest of the tracks. AFAIK, Cakewalk TTS-1 has never been "touched" by the dev team since many years ago (Roland era). That's why I assumed the problem is not in the TTS-1, rather it's in Sonar (or CbB). I guess when Cakewalk introduce "skywalk interface", there are many broken function in the track inspector (which worked fine in Sonar pre skylight). For example, there is minor bug in "pitch" slider that has never been fixed for long time. Pitch slider (in track inspector) is the only parameter we can not change / alter using + and - key, we have to manually input some value using numeric pad or drag the slide using mouse. The rest of parameter can be changed / altered using + and - keys. I think dev team probably oversight this minor bugs. I'm posting here just to let you know about it. I hope someday it can be fixed, coz these things worked really well in Sonar 8. Thank you and keep up the good work guys. 🙂
  4. Dear dev team, I'm afraid Cakewalk TTS-1 GM synth no longer respond to key+ or pitch change in inspector. I tried to transpose the key, but the tune does not change. Here we go: Create new project, insert Cakewalk TTS-1 synth. Select any MIDI track routed to TTS-1 synth. Expand the track Inspector. Try to alter the "Key +" or "Pitch" . Play your keyboard controller, or playback recorded midi clip. You can hear the key (pitch) does not change. I'm not sure if it happens since version 07 or 09, but I know it works normal several months ago. I hope it can be fixed. Thanks 🙂
  5. Dear @msmcleod , @Noel Borthwick and all dev team. I'm sorry, I don't mean to hijack the thread, but since this thread is discussing about Control surface, I would like to remind you about some problem with Control Surface plugin installation in CbB. The problem has been discussed here in the old forum. We have been waiting for it to be solved. You can read the detail of the problem in the link above. The summary is, those who did not have Sonar (pre X3) can not install Control Surface Installer in CbB due to the installer was coded to detect Sonar to work. Without Cakewalk Sonar installed, people can not install it, even if they have CbB. So I guess it would be good idea to ask if the dev team would look at this installer, and remove the installation restriction from the installer. That way people (who is now using CbB) can install it without having Sonar installed. Thank you so much guys. Best regards.
  6. It has been discussed since Cakewalk Pro Audio era in many forums. I could be wrong but from my understanding, unlike any other MIDI envelopes in Cakewalk (like MIDI CC), Tempo is (and will be) tightly related to many other factors like Timing Source, Time code, SMPTE, MTC sync, etc. That's why it is not that easy to turn Tempo into "node editable" envelope like any other MIDI envelopes. The idea looks simple from user perspective, but I believe modifying how Cakewalk deals with tempo requires really deep analysis and calculation considering many other factors mentioned rather than just adding a feature to offset the number. I love the idea tho, and I hope Cakewalk will have this feature sometime.
  7. Dear dev team, there is one minor thing I'd like to mention, it's consistency of the docking module position. I'm not sure if it's intentional by design or "bug". Open the basic template. We are now in the first screen set. Undock and close the help module. Insert "Synth rack view" on bottom right position (docked replacing the help module). Now we have "Media browser" on top right, and "synth rack view" on bottom right. Press B to collapse the whole docking panel. Select other screen set. Then go back to first screen set where we have collapsed docking panel. Press B to expand the docking panel. The synth rack is now moved to the top right, while the Media browser docked at bottom right. It won't happen if we did not collapse the docking panel. Eg, if we keep the docking panel expanded before changing the screen set, the docking module position is kept in the same order. It goes like that since long long time ago (pre Sonar platinum I guess). I hope the dev team can re-produce the symptom and see what's going on. Big big THANKS!!! 🙂 PS. Apology if it's not actualy related to the 2019.09 Early Access update.
  8. Awesome work! Hope the update will enhance our workflow.
  9. Awesome! Right tone for the right tune! Another example of why strats love Peavey's amp!
  10. I'm used to checking Arm before recording, but it is very good idea indeed!
  11. If you have any installed software with "auto update" , there is possibility the update changes how they utilize CPU. In my case, last week I update my antivirus & malware guard, and turns out they add the percentage of the CPU by ~10% for their initial background process for like first 15 minutes after Windows login.
  12. It will be good if you give more detailed info on how you connect CME UF6 to Sonar. Is it using it's USB port? or using MIDI port? Using MIDI port is more simple in general, however you may have driver problem (bug) using USB port. I'm not sure, but since CME UF is rather old (the last official driver I know comes from more than 10 years ago) there might be some problem with newer OS & DAW. It was designed to work in Win XP (2K) - Vista. YMMV. And please also let us know about your PC, OS, etc. Thanks.
  13. Hi Andy.. How about ticking "Echo System Exclusive" and select MIDI sysex echo port in Edit > Preferences > MIDI - Playback and Recording ? Does it help?
