  1. Hi there, I'm trying to learn the new Cakewalk. I am using version 2021.12 Build 102, 64-bit on Windows 10 (winver reporting version 21H2 OS build 19044.1466) I have previous experience with a version from 1993, but the UI has changed too much. When I open an existing MIDI file, I can play it just fine, but I'm having trouble with getting audio when composing something new. I'm not sure if I'm using all the correct terminology, but here are steps I am doing: * Launch Cakewalk by Bandlab (Cakewalk Start Screen appears)' * Select New Project, Empty Project.cwt ("Project Successfully Opened" and "Keep up the momentum" appears in blue box) * Insert->MIDI Track (Track 1 appears) * Double click the Track 1 row below the timeline (piano roll view appears with "Double-click or drag to add articulation") * Audition the piano roll (I'm expecting audio here but hear nothing) * Draw notes on the piano roll timeline (blue rectangles appear) * Play Track 1 (bar graph VU meter lights up with green about 80% high when the timeline cursor passes each note, but still no audio)
  2. Greetings All. Haven't been able to locate an answer so here we go.... i am trying to use Piano Roll to position SI Drums snare drum hits, cymbal hits, etcetera....some of it is quite easy....but, for certain timings of my songs i just can't get the Piano Roll note positioned correctly, specifically, the kick drum, no matter where i drag it to it's not in time with the music...i even tried "doing the math" by right clicking the midi kick drum note and writing down its specifics (occurrence time based on the ruler, duration, velocity, pitch, etcetera) and comparing to another section of the song where the kick drum is in time....is that basically the answer??....using the ruler's time position and entering it into the midi kick drum notes???? Changing the Piano Roll from 1/16 notes to 1/32 or 1/64, perhaps?? TIA Cheers!!!!
  3. In the video above, you would notice that the audio clip is not lining up correctly with the grid. I can’t say this is new because I’ve been dealing with similar alignment issues since the days of SONAR X3. Even in the piano roll, I can sometimes see what appears to be notes / grid lines shifting slightly. For a long time I’ve always lacked that sense of confidence when moving things around because I always have to make sure that clips are actually on the grid. This issue is more common when creating groove clips. Have anyone else experienced this before?
  4. I've been using cakewalk for a while and have noticed one thing that the midi clips get chopped up after drawing the midi in the piano roll. Is it just me or everyone else is facing it too?
  5. Is it possible to save modified note labels in piano roll for export? In piano roll there is an option to "use these notes instead". I have successfully reconfigured the note labels and the heading through the "define" option. My problem is I want to save this info so I can download it on a second computer and avoid lengthy duplication. There does not appear an option to save. I have accessed Cakewalk\content\core\instruments and modified the .ins file but the changes are not recognised when I hit "use these notes instead". Any help appreciated.
  6. I have been using CbB for almost 2 years now. While making a Piano Roll tutorial for beginners, I figured out a lot of stuff that blew my mind. So, I suggest even the experts to take a look. Cheers!
  7. Hello, how would I go about programming these so that every time I use the portamento parameter, every time it is the EXACT same values and shapes? I know copying and pasting the notes (selecting controllers along with notes) would work, but it's not always the same note, so that would be ultra annoying. Is there a way to just manipulate/edit the controller information post recording? Thank You!
  8. 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!
  9. I'm using the last EA. I'm trying to assign the key "A" in Piano Roll View, to switch on/off the "Auto Lock" function: But it's not working. It's still activating "Bypass audio effects": However "A" is currently assigned to "Arranger Track": How can I use the key "A" for PRV?
  10. The piano roll no longer highlights the keys I press on an external MIDI controller... but it should, right? 😂It has always done this...or am I going crazy!?
  11. I cant figure out what's wrong with it, I can go into older projects where I used the piano roll and switch the piano roll grid from lets say 1/4 to 1/32 and it actually change the length of the note spaces available but now when I do it, it doesn't change I have tried going into view, grid resolution, and then follow snap settings but that didnt change anything. I figured out what the problem was, I opened a new project whilst still having another open and somehow the bugged it and wouldn't change it even after restarting. To fix it I went into an older project with a non bugged piano roll, made a copy of it, then opened a new project from there, and that fixed it for some reason.
  12. Hi there, I'm wondering how I can edit multiple midi clips at the same time. Say I have a 4 bar MIDI clip and copy it multiple times, I want when I edit something such as a note in the original clip for it to copy these edits in the subsequent clips. Is such a thing possible in Cakewalk? Cheers
  13. I have some custom shortcuts to forward and backward a measure, for example: PgDn and PgUp: They always work in Track View and Piano Roll View simultaneously. However, after this last update, these shortcuts have stopped working in PRV. Also, I can't dock PRV window in MultiDock anymore. What is wrong?
  14. Please help me, I might have overlooked a simpler option here. 😬 I need the fastest and easiest way of moving an entire song section (to another place within a song). My requirements: Delete empty hole when cutting Shift stuff forwards when pasting Also getting markers Also getting bus data THE ONLY GOOD WAY? 1. Enable Ripple edit all 2. ALT + timeline drag (to select bus data - introduced in 2020.08) 3. CTRL + ALT + X and check all boxes (to get markers) 4. CTRL + V Result: Everything is moved according to requirements. But it's a lot of specific steps! Is there not a faster way?! BAD WAY #1 1. Enable Ripple edit all 2. ALT + timeline drag 3. CTRL + X 4. CTRL + V Result: No markers pasted! BAD WAY #2 1. Enable Ripple edit all 2. CTRL + A followed by timeline selection (or keyboard shortcuts for the same) 3. CTRL + X 4. CTRL + V Result: Won't get bus data! Thanks for any input!
  15. It seems that the piano roll and console view in Cakewalk can only be docked below or above the track view. I wanted to see if there is a way to dock either of these panes to the left or right side of the track view like the effects, inspector and help module? I know that I could undock them from the whole interface and dock them next to the interface with windows multi view but that's pretty inconvenient and annoying.
  16. Hi folks! I wanted to share a few tips that can really get you moving with MIDI in Cakewalk by Bandlab. Warning - veterans may still learn WATCH HERE: https://youtu.be/1115-DJPznI
  17. Is there a way to have Piano Roll View launch from the Track View to show the notes or clip I have selected? Scenario I've just recorded a MIDI clip, then I click on the "tetris" menu button (I don't know what it's actually called) in the clip's upper right corner and select Piano Roll. It seems to be anyone's guess how much scrolling and zooming out I'll need to do to see the notes in the clip I just clicked on. Same with selecting the clip, then calling Piano Roll from the Global Menu. This causes needless wasted time and frustration scrolling and zooming. Why aren't the notes I've just selected front and center? Is there any way to set things up so that my selected clip, or linear selection, is what appears in the PRV when I open it? (If not, hello feature request)
  18. Very simple feature. I love how auto-focus (or no auto-focus) allows you to see multi-color midi notes from other tracks: But I don't want to switch track focus or trigger the other track when I click on a non-focused note (for example, I'm really just trying to double a note). And this is why we have "auto lock" feature. But auto lock turns all the other track note colors to grey. /sad_face. Functionality wise, these options behave EXACTLY as they should. I just want an visibility option to enable colors for non-focused tracks in auto lock mode. This should be a toggle, since it's also VERY useful to have all other tracks grayed out so it's less distracting at times. Workflows necessitate both colored and grey background tracks at times. Cheers.
  19. Hello. I'm a newbie. I was wondering if it's possible to only use the keys in the piano roll view that I need. You see, I'm using third party plugins that don't need to use that many keys. They only need a handful of keys. And they do work, it's just that I get confused trying to navigate through all the keys on the piano roll view. There's like a ton of keys I don't need. I only need a few that do actually work when pressed, but they're not outlined or highlighted in anyway. So I have to guess which one is which. I was wondering if it's possible to modify the layout of the piano roll view to fit the few keys I need in the plugin... Does that make sense? I hope it does! I apologize for any inconvenience.
  20. Sometimes it makes me skip a beat when I dont want to and it is very annoying.
  21. Let’s say I want to write a septuplet in either piano roll or staff view. Is there any reasonable way to do this? Thanks!
  22. Greetings! I’m having an issue with midi note input. If I double click on the piano roll where I want the note in time, it always appears a 16th note to right of where I want it. Say I want to insert a note at beat 1 of measure 16. Instead of beat 1, it will be inserted a 16th note to the right. Is there some way to make the note insert where I want it to, that is, where I actually clicked? Thanks, hope everyone is well!
  23. Ok, I guess this one might be a bit too much work to build as the staff view is not that popular, but I would love to have a combined PRV and Staff view, like the screen shot below. I like working in the staff view as I'm classically trained. But having the CC lanes in view is quite essential, seeing and changing the velocity and modulation without having to right click each note. Also some actions, like changing the length of a note, are much easier in the PRV than in the staff view. So having all combined would be great. (BTW, this screen shot is from Samplitude)
  24. I just discovered that Bitwig Studio has a convenient workflow for editing the MPE pitch automation of a note directly inside the piano roll, demonstrated in this video at 5:21 Yet I couldn't find anything like that in Cakewalk by Bandlab. I've read that Cakewalk does support MPE, but where do I draw out my per-note pitch automation? Does Cakewalk even have such a feature up to this point of time?
  25. Hello again, I had a question about automating the pitch. Is there a way where I can see the automation within the piano roll so I can easily pitch bend the notes?
