  1. If you stick to default track names (Track 1 etc) which I sometimes do early in a project, if I reorder the tracks then the names change to reflect the track position. Is there any way to stop this happening?
  2. Thanks the video was a big help. It's still a bit more complicated when you are not working with partial overdubs but I'm getting there!
  3. Hello again. So I spent some time trying to use the comping feature. Can I ask your advice on one specific difficulty I am having. Let's say I record a first take of the whole performance. It's all fine except for one mistake part way through the take. So I record a second take which starts a few bars before the mistake and ends a few bars after the mistake. I then choose exactly where I want to changeover to the second take and where I want to revert back to the original take. On T2, it's fairly easy to use the isolate function and drag to make the time selection of the part of T2 I want to use. However now (I think!) I need to use the isolate and drag function on T1 from time zero to exactly the same time index as the start of isolate for T2. This is not easy! Is there a better way to do this and perhaps a Cakewalk video which shows how to do it?
  4. Thanks for the further info. Really helpful. I tried comping but I found the editing and crossfading of the clips more difficult than working with separate tracks. This might be lack of practice on my part so I'll have another going with the comping facility. Thanks again.
  5. Thanks! Yes I wanted the Bus FX and Automation switched out so that worked just fine. What do you use the source category of tracks for? You seem to get an exact copy of what you already have?
  6. I am struggling to get the bounce to tracks working as I want. I have four mono bass guitar tracks which together make up the entire bass performance. I used fader automation to decide which parts of which track I want. I tried the following settings: Destination: New Track Channel Format: Mono Source Category: Tracks (with the four desired tracks ticked) Mix and Render: set as defaults When I press okay, the result is four new tracks with exactly the same audio as the four source tracks. I don't get a mix of the four tracks down to one new track as expected. What am I doing wrong?
  7. I'm using Session Drummer 3 with Cakewalk's Step Sequencer. When I create a new instance of Session Drummer 3 and open Step Sequencer it always defaults to a limited number of rows which I then have to edit to get the drums sounds I want to work with. Is there anyway to store a Step Sequencer template so the rows I want to work can be recalled quickly?
  8. Yes that makes sense. I was logged out from my BL account for many months.
  9. I just installed the latest Build 13 and on starting Cakewalk I'm getting the old 'Activation required' request. This takes you to the Bandlab login. After a couple of attempts I was able to get logged in to my Bandlab account and reactivate Cakewalk. So far this seems to have stopped the message reappearing but I will keep testing.
  10. I have tested the cached Routing and track/bus ordering with AZ Controller and a large compliment of physical I/O Ports. It seems to be working correctly as per the interim release which you provide to me in March for testing. Thanks for taking care of this.
  11. Hi Mark, yes that works but it's a bit clunky. Anyway to make that into a macro so I can do it as a single keyboard shortcut?
  12. I tried this: Ctrl+Shift+Page Down takes you to the next marker Ctrl+Shift+Page Up takes you to the previous marker I'm looking for a keyboard shortcut to take me to the first marker in the project timeline. Anyway to do this?
  13. Does anyone know if there is a way to make a keyboard shortcut which would take you to the first marker in a project's timeline?
  14. I add my vote to having some way to have longer faders.
  15. Thanks for the help. I got my Control Bar configured and stored.
  16. I'm struggling to get a couple of things configured in my default Control Bar. 1. I use 'Fit project' a lot but it's hidden away in the Custom Module. Is there any way to make the 'Fit project' button always visible? The second question is related: 2. I tried resizing the Markers bar so that the individual buttons are visible. Next time I open the project the Markers bar has collapsed to minimum size again. What am I doing wrong? When I do get this fixed, where does the extra Control Bar space come from to fit in larger markers area? How does it decide what else to minimise to free up the space needed?
  17. It's looks like the issue of the UI displaying incorrect audio port names on sends and inserts has been fixed but I don't see it on the list. Could you confirm it has been fixed? E.g. it used to the be case that if you allocated a send to the left leg of a stereo pair; after you save and close the project, then reload the project, the send allocation would show as to both L and R, even though the allocation was actually L only. Regards Robert
  18. I'm talking about deriving a track send which is pre the FX. This is sadly not available in Cakewalk at the moment.
  19. Anyone from the Cakewalk team able to comment on this request please?
  20. Is there any way to tell Cakewalk to include Control Group allocations when duplicating tracks? I have a number of tracks sends whose level settings are always grouped, so I don't want to have to do this every time I duplicate a track.
  21. Does anyone know if it's possible to save control group allocations with track templates? I want a track template which has a bunch of sends with linked send levels. So I allocate the send levels to a group and then save the track template. But when I load the track template, the linking between the send levels has been lost and I have to remake the control group each time I load the template. Any ideas?
  22. Well let's hope I get a response from the development team about getting pre FX sends available in a future release.
