  1. When I overlap two clips with crossfade on, the overlapped region gets fade in/fade out set automatically. When I adjust the positions, the crossfade adjusts itself too. But if I change my mind and pull the clips apart, the ends retain the last fade in/fade out and I always have to remove them manually which is time consuming. Could we have a setting whereby the fades are removed automatically upon separation (and with Xfade on)?
  2. Seems obvious. Always surprises me it is not possible. Double clicking EQ thumbnail does nothing in Console View and in Inspector now, unless you go deeper into Pro Channel view. I think back when Pro Channel used Sonitus EQ instead of QuadCurveEQ it was possible.
  3. I often need to make a note (or remember) the settings of outboard equipment used to record a track, most of all guitar amp knobs positions, mic positions, mic and pedal used etc. Life would be so much easier if I could, for example, make a photo of an amp front panel and miked cabinet to capture the settings. And then put it into Track description panel. Same applies for clips .
  4. Having an option for a visual metronome rather than just an audio one would make on the go contributions/quick recordings via phone more effective. (In situations where headphones are unavailable or not a good option.
  5. Piano Roll - Auto Focus & Auto Lock = Link this options. Hey, guys. 🙂 It will be convenient when editing multiple tracks. Then the instrument (track) can be selected through the selection of notes and at the same time other notes (instruments) will be automatically "locked" (it will be impossible to edit them).
  6. There is a general clutterness with the time bar. See the screenshot below. General issues are: The marker gets cluttered up by both the aim assist line, as well as the now time "stop" sign. If the now time stop symbol were above on its own track, this could remedy this. The aim assist is overriding the standard measures / beat markers. This may not seem like a big deal, since the aim assist has its own MBT label, it's harder to quickly understand. I have to "read" the aim assist MBT as opposed just "seeing" where it is. If the aim assist MBT were under the standard measure / beat labels, this would fix the issue. When zoomed in far enough (second screen shot), the beat is added into the labels (M:B). This also makes it much harder for me to see which is the first beat of the measure. If there was a way to toggle showing the beat when zoomed in, I'd love to be able to turn it off. Another possibility would be to color the first beat differently, or bold it, so I can still easily "see" where beat one is without having to "read" where beat one is. I realize that these are pretty nit picky changes, but they've bothered me for a while. If it's low hanging fruit, it's be great to have some of these changed, or at least have the option to change. I understand that not everyone's workflow or preferences are the same. Thanks Bandlab! Been doing a great job lately!
  7. Just not too long ago Deezer open sourced this interesting A.I. software called Spleeter. Its a A.I. tool trained and designed to separate audio based on vocals or instruments. Its not by any means perfect but a facinating tool that could be potentially implemented into cakewalk: https://github.com/deezer/spleeter Spleeter, a Deezer source seperation library is written in python and uses Tensorflow to separate (According to their Github Readme): Vocals (singing voice) / accompaniment separation (2 stems) Vocals / drums / bass / other separation (4 stems) Vocals / drums / bass / piano / other separation (5 stems) Pretty cool A.I. software to be honest. Would anybody here agree that this should be implemented into Cakewalk?
  8. MIDI СС automation is a pain that kills all desire to work in Cakewalk. Cakewalk has the best solution on the market in multi-instrumental MIDI editing mode. But it's completely impossible to work with automation inside MIDI clips. Studio One - has a line of automation. Reaper has excellent scripts for quickly drawing different envelopes - it is even sometimes more convenient than the lines in Studio One May have many times asked for something to do with it. Please, developers, let's think together how we can better change this. Happen again... Cakewalk has the best system on the market for working with multi-tools in a MIDI editor, but due to the inability to work properly with MIDI-CC automation, all this work is reduced to zero. 😞 The mandatory item that I would like to see is The reset of the MIDI CC after pressing "Stop" to the user-set values. This system is in the Reaper and it helps a lot in the work.
  9. Hi. Will be great to have Mouse wheel scrolling for plugins added to the track.
  10. Some useful feature suggestion 1. Tempo adjustment enhancement In current version CbB, you cannot select a serious of tempo change, and just drag them up/down, left/right. A flexible tempo adjustment function is pretty essential for a film music composer.it will be useful if cakewalk able to adjust tempo like this. 2. Logical Editor In percussion editing, it’s very common to do something like “select every other 3rd notes and subtract velocity by 12”, although it can be done by write a cal script, but cal script is not very friendly to use. So a logical editor may be a good solution for this situation. Users can create the function they need by themselves. 3. Capability of creating multiple Marker tracks. -------------------------Navigation enhancement and track visibility management------------- 4. Track visibility configurations Maybe a visibility manager instead of show/hide track dialogue is better. Visibility manager also should able to dock to the bottom, able to save different Track visibility configurations and able to assign a keyboard shortcut to each configuration. 5. New commands (1) Show tracks with data (2)show tracks with data at the now cursor position (3) show tracks with data between the locators Usually a scoring template contains hundreds even thousands of track. These functions will significantly help composers to reduce the time to navigate the tracks.
  11. Track Filter for Arrange View (tags for tracks and groups of tracks). Will be great to have this option for Arrange View. But it must be done... 1. 10 shorcuts for presets for the first ten presets... (The user himself can choose the right.) 2. Toggle switch version (One shortcut for select a filter preset and return to the previous view). 3. To complement the options of this wish - paragraph 5 4. New DOCK "Tags View" or "Filter View" - between the Inspector and the Arrangement or behind the Inspector or to the Right behind the browser Or in front of the Browser. Need to think and discuss. Perhaps to make a special panel in Contol bar like Screenset View? 4. Shortcut for "Add new Filter".
  12. Synchronous selection of channels (tracks): Numbers & Name. Auto Focus. Problem... 1. I have Instrument track (VSTi) 2. I have other track (AUDIO). 3. I select Audio track. 4. I have midi clip in Arrange. 5. I select this midi clip. 6. Press midi-keyboard. - Don`t have sound... I`m sad... I need manual click by track name! 7. Press midi-keyboard - have sound I am happy. Now I can play & record. This is like in Piano Roll - Multitrack edit - Auto Focus. This otions you can add to Option Menu. 😉 > " Auto Focus"or "Synchronous selection of channels (tracks)" or "The full selection of track" or "Select MIDI for the selected track"...
  13. Mackie Control - Automatic switching (rewind) to the selected track (channel). I have iCON Platform M+ and Cakewalk (Roland) VS-100. In CbB we have some options for Mackie Control but will be great to have more... Add some options to Controller/Surface Properties 1. Automatic switching (rewind) to the selected track (channel). If I select Clip or Select Track Number. - Now I need to open menu and select "Move Mackie Control - 1 here". 2. Show Volume/Pan - Now I see only Pan parametr 3. Full Name Track/Short name - Now I see "Short name" - PdFlcn. Full name - Pad - Falcon. If I select "Full Name: I will see "Pad - Fa" (8 symbols). 4. Group selection of tracks. If I select 2 or more track Mackie Control select this track too... not olny one. If I select folder - All tracks in the folder will be selected in Mackie Control. - Now olny one channel selected. Special for iCON Platfrom M+ https://iconproaudio.com/product/platform-m-plus/ In iCON Platform M+ not working: 1. Loop Button (will be great to have Loop ON/OFF) 2. Mixer (will be grat to have Console View). 3. Read/Write buttons 4. Emulation Mackie Control buttons "Shift" > PC keyboard Shift, Alt > Alt, Control > Ctrl, Options > Win or Ctrl+Shift,
  14. Hi. Midi note: to change the duration without changing the start and end of notes New Smart instrument... In Studio One I press Alt and move mouse.... Studio One 4.5 https://i.imgur.com/Fa7cz3q.gif Reaper 5.9 https://i.imgur.com/1iGN7bX.gif In the Reaper, this is done automatically without pressing the function keys. It would be nice to have that in Sonar
  15. An option to disarm all other tracks when you arm the current track. This makes it quicker to pursue an idea because you don’t have to constantly check to see if other tracks might inadvertently be written to. Shift or Ctrl could used to arm multiple tracks when this option is selected. Just as an aside, I have overwritten tracks that weren’t in view because I had forgotten to disarm them. Generally because inspiration trumped careful methodology. Yes, a personal issue... 😉
  16. Hi, does CbB support MIDI plugins for instrument tracks, like MIDI Polysher or does it have such features onboard? I would like to set a note range for layered/splitted instruments and filter modwheel or other CC for some instruments.
  17. I'm guessing you'll eventually get around to this, but coloring events by track, and automatically including events by the clip/track selections in the arranger seems to be in order. Same methodology as the Piano Roll. I don't use the event list often, but opened it because someone had mentioned it.
  18. If you did not know, Pro Tools just released an app on iPad that allows users to move faders and all kinds of cool stuff. Not sure that'll ever come to Cakewalk but I was thinking that could be a really cool addition, like a remote control of sorts, for android based phones and tablets. https://www.avid.com/products/pro-tools-control
  19. Would really be nice to be able to split audio by selection. This would split it at the beginning and ending of the current selection making the selection a separate clip.
  20. Hi guys. These last days I've been struggling with finding an easy way to bounce midi information into audio tracks. I've been using a Drum VST (among others) that doesn't allow multiple outputs so this task has been very tedious for me. I've tried the CAL method too, but it has displayed some errors while creating the tracks. By now the easiest way I've found to achieve this is to paste as many VST tracks as drum parts the song has, and bounce them individually into audio. It would be so cool to have a feature like the one shown in the video in Cakewalk, cause since I've moved into this DAW, the experience has been amazing and I'd love everyone to use this software. The last DAW I used was Studio One and it has this easy way to bounce midi notes into audio. Greetings and have a nice one!
  21. Greetings. From the old documentation, it seems that Cakewalk used to have a way to export markers. This is currently not available (or I've been unable to find it). Could you please add the feature to export markers? Preferably to a text file. Thanks!
  22. Not urgent; just thought it might be handy to have internet and file linking abilities from Note Browser. Thanks. Reason for withdrawing feature request: In another thread, someone posted links to a couple of third-party note-taking tools that might be more useful than implementing the suggestion above. Also, there are other Cakewalk features, tweaks, improvements, etc. that would be more of a priority.
  23. Hi, I'm cakewalk and sonar user in Tokyo. I want a Global shuffle(swing) function.(same function in Propellerhead Reason) It can adjust the grooves of selected tracks in realtime. but it not changes the data of MIDI clips. (and except for clips of step sequencers,because step sequencer has own swing parameter) Because I want to adjust the grooves while playing. I'm using MIDI plugin to do it. but it need to adjust at each tracks. Thanks
  24. Has this been thought of before, and how doable is it ? A little floating theme preview window with a refresh button to see your changes immediately. Instead of having to switch over and reload the theme in Cakewalk while editing, this solution provides an easier workflow for graphics designers Perhaps a few example UI elements laid out in an pseudo-functional sample so you can see how all of your elements would look inside of Cakewalk together, how your hover images look, how your faders and knobs look when tweaked, etc. It'd be great to have this feature as part of the theme editor, avoiding having to have Cakewalk open to unload/load your theme while editing theme graphics would be amazing.
  25. Well i know there's a "process effect" function to use fx on selected part and a way with using bus+FX that can be enabled\disabled\send_volume, but actually i think that enable\disable fx should be done with automation lane there's about a 50 automation parameters for TH3 and it's hard to find where is it, some other fxs doesn't have such function at all. i'd suggest write automation for on\off button in fx bin & || add dry\wet auto lane for each fx in fx bin it is resized pretty much, but it is amplitube4 - it has just some [param 1-16] for automation
