  1. Hey guys! I would realy like to use this feature: It's a easy and fast way of of creating a costum plugins browser layout. Which can also be saved and imported for future Cakewlak installs. I would like to see the changes that I make reflect in the plugins browser Any chance this works in BandLab's CakeWalk version?
  2. Leverage the matrix engine with the arranger track so we can trigger and playback sections of a song with a midi device. The arranger features allows for multiple different arrangements, but doesn't allow for spontaneity during the performance of a song. being able to assign arranger sections to a midi device and trigger its playback in sync with time will be very beneficial to those who would like to perform live with Cakewalk. The logic of when a sections changes after the new section is triggered should be based on where in musical time the new section starts. If a new triggered section starts on the "a" of 4, then the section should change on the "a" of 4. If it starts on the "1" then it should change to the new section on the down beat. Some of these features are already available in the matrix view. These features will be more useful with arranger track sections.
  3. Hi, everyone, I’m a relatively new Cakewalk user, switching from Reason. I love Cakewalk, the sound, the options, the features (I found the Pro Channel awesome), the graphic interface, the modularity, and the countless options. The sound of the embedded tools, to me, is light years ahead of my experience with Reason, and the modularity opens up a lot of versatility in terms of the sound you can achieve. I've found there are, however, a few workflow improvements that can be made, in my opinion, to make working in Cakewalk almost reflex, without having to think, and allow you to focus exclusively on the sound, instead of procedures and workarounds - things that you would intuitively do, but aren't available, things that can replace more complicated operations and looking through menus, mass inserts and adjustments of modules, replicating settings, etc. So I put together a list of suggestions, a few weeks ago. It's around 75 items, and it covers everything from glitches to appearance, but mainly workflow improvements. I'd like to see how many of you guys would like to see them implemented, too, and hope to see as many of them in future releases. I’ve grouped them into three categories, one about necessary fixes, which refer mainly to stability, the ability to remember settings, etc. The second one refers to improvements in the workflow, which could see a better, streamlined processes, some inspired from my experience with Reason, most just by working, and recording my go to reflexes or natural wishes. The third one is a list of personal wishes, that would make Cakewalk like a present box – kind of the cherry on top - and complete in every aspect, at least, to my personal subjective wishes. So here they go. Hope you find them desirable. Cheers and happy holidays! PS> Any idea that you think is useful, and you would like to see implemented, you can select individually and then click on the "quote selection" pop-up, to add in your reply. With enough support, maybe we can see them in the future. Improvements A. Instrument Tracks “Assign to track” option in the instrument/soft synth creation dialog, in the rack, which replace instrument in Instrument Tracks and convert MIDI track to Instrument track, if synth is assigned to a MIDI track. All the in/out associations and conversion of MIDI track to Instrument track be done automatically on “assigning to track”, or menu selection. Allow the Synth Rack and browser windows to be opened in the Console View (both docked and undocked mode). Drag and drop soft synth in the free space (Track and Console View) creates Instrument Track (or right click in the free space). Drag and drop soft synth on track (other than in the FX box) (Track and Console View) replaces soft synth in Instrument Track. Drag and drop instrument/synth on MIDI track automatically converts to Instrument Track – in both Track and Console view. Open instruments/synths, in the Console View, on double click on the track icon, instead of opening the icon menu. To open the icon menu, right click. Being able to open instrument/soft synth in the Console view is very important during the mixing process, as there is often need to adjust parameters – output volume, reverb, EQ or compression adjustments in light of any PC adjustments and blending you need to do – for the instruments that allow internal FX options, etc. As of now you need you need a few clicks, and flipping through the windows, to do that. “Replace Synth” option in the Console view, on right click on the instrument icon of Track, same as in the Track View. B. Undo Make Undo operate for all actions performed in the DAW, including PC module/VST plugin parameter variations. C. MIDI Editing Workflow (Track View) Double click in free area writes default length note in PRV, just like now. Double click and drag writes variable length note, instead of single click and drag, like now. Select area/note in PRV with left click – instead of right click, which is counter intuitive. Same for automation nodes, etc. Double click on note deletes it, exactly the opposite of writing it, instead of right click, which is counter intuitive. Provides symmetrical and reflex write/delete, with the same operation. Right click on note/note selection opens up processing FX menu, with Transpose, Quantize, and other usual note editing options available directly in the menu. Quantize, Transpose, Time Stretch, and Velocity be available as direct options on the right-click-on-clip menu, instead of being found in the FX tree submenu, like know – that unnecessarily complicates access. The other, less usual FX stay in the sub tree menu, under “Other FX”. This simplifies access to the most usual operations. Double click on empty lane of Instrument/MIDI track, in Clip Mode, creates clip to default size. Double click and drag creates clip to drag size. Double click on title bar of clip opens PRV, in Notes mode, just as in Clip mode. Also consistent with the usual navigation behavior in all software, where double clicking on item opens it. Resize clip, Fade In/Fade Out available in Notes Mode, just as in Clip mode. This provides consistent behavior between Notes/Clip visualizations, and allows for quick access to PRV, without having to check or toggle the visualization in the track properties. Double click on wave clip opens Clip Editing View (Auto Zoom In), where you can micro cut, delete, move audio to grid, etc. Clicking on note in Piano Roll View (PRV) plays note. Copying (CTRL+C) of clip automatically positions the cursor at the end of clip. Stretch/length note adjustment menu on right click menu, on note selection/clip. C. Audio & Track Management (Track View) Selecting track + DEL deletes track (with/without confirmation dialog), and not the last selected clips in track - change selection focus to track on track select (also see Console View DEL track). Selecting FX module + DEL deletes module (also see Console View DEL track). Audio clip copy and paste to take place in the track lane where mouse cursor is placed (placing cursor in a track lane automatically selects that track for pasting). Drag and drop (import) audio over MIDI track automatically opens Extract MIDI dialog. Moving cursor on upper ruler bar takes into account the current Snap To setting. Closing any open Region FX window reverts to the previous active View, not to automatically to the Console View, as it does now. Export Audio Clip option on right click menu – export directly “as is” without any processing. Adjust amplitude of audio clips with on-clip Volume knob (Audition style). D. Pro Channel Module Options, Mix Tracks (Console View) Click on EQ graph window in Track to open full EQ window, not only in PC, like now. Eliminates unnecessary clicking and scrolling. Allow EQ window to be freely repositioned on the screen. CTRL + Mouse adjustment adjusts any parameter of any PC module (including menu choice for reverb types in REmatrix) across all tracks containing that module, without having to select any tracks. When you select specific tracks, the adjustment only applies to selected tracks. Right now, that option is only available for Power On/Power Off, and for selected tracks only. CTRL + Insert PC Module on a Pro Channel automatically inserts that module on all tracks. If specific tracks are selected, the insert is made on all selected tracks. Copy/Paste function for PC Modules across tracks. The pasted PC Module retains all the settings of the original, copied one. Patch/Setting copy/paste function for PC Modules across tracks. Same as above, but referring exclusively to copying settings from one module to the other. Drag and Drop PC Module from on track to another, same way as for FXs (again, consistent, intuitive behavior throughout). If the target track doesn’t contain the respective PC module, drop inserts PC Module, with the original settings. If the PC Module is already inserted, drag and drop copies the settings. Mass insert/changes settings of PC Modules: CTRL + Drag and Drop PC Module on any of the tracks of a selection automatically inserts/changes settings of the corresponding PC Module on all selected tracks. Mass duplicate FX modules: CTRL + Drag and Drop FX plugin on any track of a selection automatically inserts that FX plugin on all selected tracks (same as above). Mass track reroute (Select tracks + select route menu option in any of the selected tracks). Track focus change when clicking on track, instead of only on the track number, like now. Makes it easier and faster to select, without having to think where to click. "Duplicate Track" option in the Console View, in the right click menu, same as in the Track View. Moving/reordering tracks by click (in any area without commands, including icon area) and drop, in Console view, without pressing ALT, like now. That seems unnecessary. The exact same way it now happens in the Track View, where ALT is not needed - have the exact procedure for the same thing, across the different views, for consistent behavior. That complicates things unnecessarily, and makes you need to remember different procedures for the exact thing, instead of just being immersed, and performing tasks on reflex. Selecting track/FX plugin/PC Module + DEL deletes track/FX plugin/PC Module (with/without confirmation dialog). Right now, when you select a track/FX module, and press DEL, in Console View, it deletes any previously selected audio/note clips in the Sequencer, which is strange. In Console View, make the Module Menu available as a graphic section with toggle buttons (maybe on the docking bar) for opening or collapsing any of the sections of the Console (for instance “Sends”, and any other module existing in the Module Menu), instead of opening/collapsing it from the View menu. New Open Bus Section toggle button to fully expand the Master/Buses section of the Console View, to the right, to full view (taking into account their current visualization settings – collapsed, PC open, etc.) the same the PC/Properties section does, to the left; then resume previous position on reclick of toggle button. Stereo/Mono toggle button on instrument tracks, same as on audio tracks. It could work by enforcing mono/stereo mode on source VSTs, same as the check option available in the VST Properties/shell. Solo override Mute – on Soloing a muted track, play solo track(s) as if it/they weren’t muted. Allow renaming of FX modules. E. Song Playing/Navigation On activating Play In Loop, Punch In Recording, etc., automatically use current selection to, without having to additionally click on "set selection to", first. That seems unnecessary. Allow cursor to play outside the loop, even with "Loop" button on, after stop and replay, if you set it to a position outside the loop, and only play within the loop if placed anywhere inside it. Allow the Now Slider in the Control Bar to readjust cursor position while playing. On “Stop Rewind Marker To Now Position” selected in Track View/Options, Stop button leaves cursor in current playing position. Pressing stop again moves cursor to Now position. Repeated Stop button pressing toggles between the two. This way that setting can be eliminated altogether. Pressing Stop once leaves cursor where in current position. Pressing Stop twice goes to Now position. Simple to use. Both options are available at all times without setting modifications, and the behavior keeps consistent on all projects. Allow navigator to be repositioned at the bottom of screen, above the control bar, in track view. Allow to make that default for all projects, and also remember position automatically for each project. Moving VSTs into different categories, in the browser, by drag and drop into folder, same as in Windows Explorer. Aim Assist for position cursor on Time Ruler be placed above/under the Time Ruler, without hindering viewing of cursor on the ruler. Mouse Scroll wheel moves slider on both scroll bars (vertical and horizontal scrolling), on placing cursor over them - in all Workspaces. F. Saving Saving project automatically resets autosave counters to zero. No need for autosave to kick in only seconds after the project has been manually saved. Disable automatic autosave after each undo. Let autosave work according to the setting in preferences without additional interventions. Unnecessary autosave takes time and interrupts flow. G. Appearance Add transparency slider for background (native theme) colors, in the track color change dialog (and only for the colored track areas). This will allow track colors to be less affected by the native theme (dark/light/etc.) and display closer to their natural hue. Allow marker/song sections in the Track View, which can be selected as blocks/chunks, to be assigned individual colors - will affect the background of the section, and not the clip colors - this will help easily visualizing song sections in one glance. Necessary fixes H. Crashing Fixing crashing on VST conflicts – why not just isolate the conflicting VST, and close it, instead of letting it crash the DAW (with maybe an explicit message as to what the problem is). I get crashes when clicking on the stereo/mono toggle button on the Master fader, when I try to reorder tracks in the Track View, when I bulk adjust PC modules pots in the Console view, and in all kinds or random situations. It’s either VSTs that crash the program, or even PC modules. That’s a big issue. I. Remember Project settings (these are on my machine, I don't know if everybody has them, it might vary from one person to the next) Fixing irregular behavior where the Control bar setup is not remembered, on project open. Fixing irregular behavior where mass variation of the REmatrix across several selected tracks (CTRL + mouse adjustment) during playback causes the knobs to move to different values. Fixing irregular behavior where VSTs that use crosstalk among tracks reset their settings to the default values, under various circumstances. Remember the open/collapsed status of one knob plugin windows, in the Pro Channel of Instrument tracks, on project open (Console View). They always start up as open, on project reload, and need to be reclosed individually, which is really annoying. Remember the order of the Browser, Synth Rack and Help windows, in the right side dock, which always resets on project re-open. Remember the Track View>MIDI/Show Velocity in MIDI clips visualization setting for projects. Remember the Track View>VIEW/Auto Track Zoom setting for projects. Remember the PRV controller pane parameter choice. J. Drivers Recognize 24 bit ASIO drivers, instead of 16 bit, on some soundcards (for instance SB Audigy series). On engine dropouts, don’t stop playing, reset the engine, and keep playing – this has already been implemented in the 2019.11 release. Allow projects to work with no MIDI out selection in Preferences/Drivers, or provide a "No MIDI out" check option, instead of allowing the lack of selection of a midi out to cause all synths loaded to automatically be assigned as midi out destination for all midi tracks, which causes the project to behave erratically. Awesome K. Add the SSL 4K channel compressor (complete with Autogain and Peak attack mode, just as the original – I know this may be too much to ask, but those features are magical in the SSL channel compressor - autogain basically tells you what the best compression setting is, and the peak mode allows for tracks to be sent back in the mix without audibly impacting the attack), as third Pro Channel compressor option. Add the CA-2A compressor to the Pro Channel, and as insert FX. I think Cakewalk's is one of the best emulations in the business (have it as a free RE in Reason). New Wow/Flutter knob in the Tape Emulator. Maybe review the high/mid-high freq softening in the Tape Emulator. Separate one knob modules in the Pro Channels for Harshness, separate for guitars, and Drums/vocals. The general one available now, is a great idea, and I love it, and use it, but it’s kind of in the middle. HP + LP filters added to the REMatrix Solo, on the wet signal, and integrated within the PC interface. Pro Channel modules available as insert FXs. Fully programmable shortcuts, without limitations.
  4. I don't remember what revision this used to be possible in, but back in the 90s, Cakewalk used to be able to show 6/8 time in the Piano Roll View "properly" (e.g., with two groups of six sixteenth notes on the grid and one bar separating the two when set to sixteenth resolution). Now, no matter what I try, I cannot get it to show that - instead, it shows 6/8 time as if it were 3/4 time, with three groups of four sixteenth notes on the grid and two bars separating them. I can force my brain to think around this weird presentation, but it is certainly not optimal. Can we please get a native 6/8 display in the Piano Roll View instead? Thank you!
  5. Cakewalk needs a Humanize feature in the PRV!! I tried the CAL script but its very limiting as it only allows offsetting. No options to randomize velocity and note lengths. Also, there should be an option to color notes differently within the same track.
  6. Hi There, Thanks for picking up the slack and resurrecting Cakewalk - Much appreciated - now I can finally remix 25 year old recordings (yeah I could have used something else but why?) So I hope this is an ok place to comment/request a feature request. Regarding Groove Clip Looping - Please Please consider facilitating a 'Repeat Count' entry box so we don't have to drag it out for 100 or more bars. Its would be cool to have both but a repeat count would be awesome! Thanks
  7. A permanent MIDI input chord display in the Control Bar would be fantastic! Below is my concept art: We do have the MIDI plugin "Chord Analyzer", which is good (but lacks selection of "b vs #" chord naming) but it would just be super convenient if Cakewalk at all times could display any chords detected at MIDI inputs and/or currently scrubbed. Check out how Logic Pro X has always done it: . Courtesy of the "Make Chords and Melodies Easily In Logic Pro X" YouTube video that demonstrates the live chord detection. EDIT: Updated with new correct image!
  8. Hello! I am using Cakewalk for a long time, basically for orchestral mock-ups with vst instruments. So, I use a lot of midi/instrument tracks. Bellow is a small list of things I find to be cumbersome to work with in Cakewalk. 1) The "Number of Tracks/Track Pairs to Create" field at the "Insert Soft Synth Options", is broken. When trying to input a new number (with Max Available un-ticked), the order of the numbers you type in is being put backwards. It's difficult to explain, just try it out and try to change the number of tracks a few times. 2) When duplicating an instrument track (let's say a Kontakt track), Cakewalk is creating a new synth instance of Kontakt with all of the patches that the previous instance had. This is most of the time not desired. An empty instance would have been more appropriate. This was the default way of duplicating instrument tracks some versions of the software ago. 3) Make the way of navigation the same on all views that it's appropriate. For example, the PRV and Tempo View do not use the same mouse and keyboard combinations. 4) I can't find a way to zoom in/out vertically with the mouse wheel and keyboard modifier key. Take a hint from Studio One's navigation methods. 5) I find it super annoying that there is not a way to rename a track at the PRV!!! Double clicking on the name of the track should allow renaming it, like it does on the Track view and the Console view! 6) It could be nice if the CC lanes on the PRV had the ability to have different heights. Sometimes you need to see them all but have more space on some than others. 7) Also, the order of appearance of the CC lanes on PRV is changing all the time when selecting multiple tracks with same or different CCs. Ideally one could arrange the order permanently or the software could display them in acceding order by default. 8 ) Nowadays, a lot of instruments have advanced legato engines that need some time pre-roll in order to be in-sync with the beat (for example the Cinematic Studio Series). Cakewalk has time compensation values only in ticks, not in milliseconds. This could also affect and break some Kontakt scripts that automatically manage different legato transition speeds but need to take into account the time pre-roll time in milliseconds. 9) I might be on my own here, but I preferred the previous way of deselecting notes on the PRV by right clicking on any CC lane. Now, most of the time when I work fast, instead of deselecting the notes by left clicking on the notes area, I am ending up creating new ones. I will really appreciate if any of the above could be thought and be looked at. Thank you in advance! Elias
  9. W Would be good additional selection option in arrangement track inspector view to hide tracks without clips into section range : ) It would be helpful in situation when many tracks used.
  10. The Arranger Tracks feature is a very welcome feature in CWBB. It works really well to try out how a piece sounds in different arrangements with zero editing. As part of this activity, it's often necessary to play an arrangement over and over, so as to get a feel for it before doing the same with other arrangements. Hence it would be useful to be able to loop the whole piece. Currently though, if you turn on looping, CWBB turns it off when you play an arrangement, and does not allow it to be turned back on while an arrangement is playing. I saw a couple of earlier posts asking for this, but they are not in the Feedback forum and not tagged as feature requests, so may not have come to the attention of those looking out for enhancements to implement in the product. The only suggestion to date has been that the OP should edit their tracks, using copy/paste etc to achieve the desired arrangement, but obviously that defeats the main point of the Arrangeer Tracks feature which is to be able to do all this quickly and non-destructively. As a side note, I don't think looping of individual parts of an arrangement would be worth implementing, since we can already achieve that by dragging in the required number of instances of the section. (EDIT: actually thinking further, I could be wrong on that, and it could also be very useful to loop just a couple of sections or so, to get the feel for how the sections run together when arranged like that. ) But the ability to loop the whole arrangement would be very useful.
  11. Hello guys. I would like to propose a feature that would allow the user to filter groups/folders in track view mode using an outliner. I am aware that there is a similar feature available in the console view but it would also be nice to have it in the track view. The inspector panel would be very useful to place the outliner/filter, make it more easily accessible to quickly filter any folders that are not needed in some cases. Here is a mockup for the track view filter/outliner(Left panel): 1.) User enable GUITARS group & KEYS group : Only the guitars and keys folder groups would be displayed in the track view. 2.) Guitars only Thanks Cakewalk Dev Team.
  12. Step Sequencer Hide unused notes and Choping step in smaller parts like a A. Flammed step but more flexible.
  13. An option that lets you change the background color for all the clips in one track, keeping the same foreground color for all the tracks and vice versa (without having to do it manually in the properties) EXAMPLES: First Mode: Second Mode:
  14. Not a huge deal, but while the Bakers are being so attentive to us, I figured I'd ask. I fat finger the automation lanes button all the time. I mean to open up the comp lanes. And when I do this and quickly click it again to un-show the automation lanes that I never wanted to see in the first place, Cakewalk creates a volume automation envelop and leaves it in track view. I really don't need to see volume envelopes until I get to the mixing phase and I want to create fader automation. And I don't really want to see unnecessary automation lines on the track view. It'd be nice, if you open the automation lanes and close it without actually having any fader envelope nodes defined (leaving it in automation "jump" mode for the entire project), the track view continued to not keep the fader automation visible. I know, I'm being pedantic. But I do this all the time. Never hurts to ask. On a side note, if the take lanes and automation lanes icons were more visually distinct, like they were different colors, I'd probably discern between them more easily. But ever since their inception, I click the wrong ones constantly. So I don't think my brain is going to stop. Cheers. 3E476386-5DE6-4558-A557-126280C87FED.MP4
  15. Posibility to copy paste audio splits with pattern tool. For example i split one bar in some sizes and take pattern tool select these bar and pattern tool slices in these size of slices rest of audio file where i use it.
  16. Seperated special piano roll sepereated from global piano roll but what is simillar to step sequencer with play button opens midi clips from cell from Matrix view. For example Matrix View is very useful for fast ideas and can be midi, audio bank for creativity but there are one small weakness. Piano roll for individual midi clip editing in Matrix view. (Matrix View cell/(MIDI) clip editor (independent PRV))
  17. Hello guys. I would like to propose an optional feature that would allow users to make use of the extra space from the track view, utilizing it to give more space for the FX rack. This could be very useful in cases where the user prefers a more compact view in the screen without losing the FX rack view. CURRENTLY: This is how the fx rack is dispayed with compact view. Only 1 plugin is visible. PROPOSAL: This is a rough mockup on the fx rack making use of the extra space as an optional feature. Thanks Cakewalk Dev Team.
  18. Posibility to open midi clip in piano roll when click with mouse on cell where midi clip placed in Matrix view. I can open step sequencer clips but can't open midi clips there
  19. So say if I'm in Track View, For example : Options/Meters/Meter Options, etc...any box window really . Is there a way or a key command combination I can hit so that the windows stays open . So I can check or uncheck multiple options without having to start over at the beginning again and go thru multiple box's just to check or uncheck anything one at a time again. Id like to be able to stay on a box and turn on and off several choices with out the window disappearing after each one. That's so irritating . Wasted time too. This would be a good feature to add if possible.
  20. Hello guys. I would like to propose a feature that would allow the user to filter what functionalities/actions should be affected by the undo feature in cakewalk. This could be helpful on specific workflows that might require some of the undo features functionality; like a quick undo inside the console view or the browser tab. Thanks.
  21. I'm aware that you can freeze tracks and also free the FX rack and ProChannel by bouncing the audio, however: - You can't freeze aux tracks nor bounce their result to audio without manually recording it. That would give another option to create submixes/stems by bouncing tracks into aux tracks. - Adding to that, an option to reset the FX Rack and ProChannel after a bounce has been performed on the clip. That could help reduce the amount of tracks one uses, since CbB doesn't have any sort of native subproject workflow.
  22. I have 3 Monitor setup and was wondering if it is possible to split the Console view so I can have BUS window in my top monitor and the Track faders span across my 2 bottom screens? OK I know silly Q but think about it, it would save scrolling back and forth from TRACK Faders to BUS Faders. I know you can have the Bus view in the Track view but I would rather see a Mix Console. OH and yes I have an Xtouch Compact and would love to be able to control 9 Buses instead of just the Master Bus. Thanks
  23. Waveform preview option from tracks in Piano Roll Background For example i Have piano instrument and i have Vocal audio track and I showing my vocal Audiotrack waveform in my Pianos pianoroll background like in Wavefoirm preview option but possibility to show any waveform from any audio track in Piano roll background
  24. Feature request — Multi-instrument tracks Something I really miss in Cakewalk by BandLab is a way to have a single MIDI track to control more than one VSTi instrument. If there is already a simple way to do that, I'm not aware of it. I need this a lot, because my instruments are usually made of more than a single VSTi (composite instruments) and, most of the time, I even need to play some of these instruments one or two octaves lower or higher than the others. How do other DAWs solve this? Usually, what I see most DAWs doing to solve this is through having built-in plug-in chains. For example, I like the Studio One instrument chain, however it poses problems for me when freezing and unfreezing these tracks, and it gets messy with relation to the mixer tracks involved. I also like FL Studio's Patcher, but it is limited in the sense that its audio output goes to a single audio track, requiring the "FL Send" built-in plug-in to route each VSTi instrument to its own audio track. Bitwig Studio has the most powerful implementation of this, in my opinion, as any MIDI or any audio can be manipulated along its route by design, being however a bit too complex sometimes. How could Cakewalk By BandLab solve this? The way Cakewalk By BandLab tracks and routing works is really one of the things I prefer over most DAWs. You can take advantage of this to solve this problem without needing any plug-in chains or similar. I suggest adding a way to add more than one output to MIDI tracks, so we can make a MIDI track to output to a Piano and to a String simultaneously, for instance. MIDI effects could then be added to the inputs of the instrument tracks. An alternative to multiple MIDI outputs is to have MIDI sends — the ability to add one or more sends on a MIDI track that sends its MIDI signal to a VSTi track, just like the audio sends. If possible, it would be nice that each of these MIDI sends could have its own MIDI effects chain. Other way that may not be so pretty is the ability to add "send plug-ins" on the track effects panel (MIDI or audio tracks). These could work for audio and for MIDI. These "send plug-ins" would send their audio or MIDI output to another track, which would have the advantage of the audio or MIDI being preprocessed before being sent. But, honestly, I would prefer the solution 1 or 2. Conclusion I know you guys work very hard to constantly improve this amazing (and unbelievable free!) software. If you find this feature could add important value to Cakewalk By BandLab and deserve your development time, it would make my day. I'm sure there are lots of other users who would also need this feature as well. Keep up the good work!
  25. Hello guys. I would like to propose a feature that would allow users to sort plugins in the plugin browser. Category grouping is quite helpful but the sorting feature can also be a useful tool in some cases. Thanks.
