Before this week, I had never used pre-created audio fx chains; years ago I tested a few that I created but never integrated them into my workflow. Based on the discussion in a different thread, I have started to explore them more--when inserted into the ProChannel and when used in track fx bins--so I can better understand and make effective and efficient use of them. In general when attempting new tasks using technology, I tend to assume (1) I misunderstood something (such as the steps needed) and/or (2) I made a mistake. Before I assume the worst, I try to follow the advice I grew up with, "Try to figure it out yourself first." However, I have recently learned that sometimes its neither (1) nor (2) but (3) the instructions are wrong, unclear, and/or missing a step or two or (4) there's a flaw (intentional or unintentional) built into the technology. So, as suggested in another thread, I am here to ask for help in understanding: (1) what's going on when certain things happen (or don't happen), (2) how I can solve specific issues when they arise, (3) alternate methods (preferred or non-preferred, time-honored best practices or creative/experimental), and (4) if there are bugs (known or unknown) so I should stop trying to make something happen that just is not ready to happen with the technology. In another thread, I wondered out loud: Note: I am not sure, but it seemed like at issue is Cakewalk by BandLab's installation of pre-created fx chains that reference fx plug-ins that new and old users don't have installed. So far I have tried a number of fx chains in via ProChannel and have been very impressed in (1) what they do and (2) how easy it was to use them. Also, it was great to see that is indeed feedback given for chains that referenced(1) non-existing (on my PC and/or in my scan path) and (2) problematic plug-ins. Correct me if I am wrong, but at this point (with these messages so far), if I have these plug-ins all I need to do is point the vst scanner to where the plug-ins are (i.e., add to the scan path list) or move the plug-ins to a currently scanned path. (If those don't work, I assume I might have to reinstall the plug-ins.) Finally, for the benefit of new comers to Cakewalk, if it is true that Cakewalk by BandLab installs specific fx chains automatically that reference plug-ins that aren't being installed, perhaps (1) those chains can be deleted from the installer, (2) those plug-ins could be installed (or made available for purchase via the "Online info . . ." link), or (3) an option could be given to put the chain in a queue to be deleted at the next rescan. And for the benefit of old timers, perhaps there could be a "Search PC for missing plug-in" option (automatic or manual. I don't know, but maybe these are already there (or are in the works).
Hello, Edit: 23 March 2019 I decided it could be helpful to include a list of upcoming tutorial videos and their links. The video below is the first video in the playlist, but if you are interested in a specific topic, check the following list for quick navigation. If there is no link for it yet, it means I haven't uploaded it. I can take requests, but keep in mind that I run another business on top of my actual Chernobyl Studios audio work, so if I like the idea, it'll get put on the list and I'll get to it when I get to it.

I have a channel on YouTube that I created many years ago for creating Cakewalk SONAR Platinum tutorials. I constantly get questions, comments, and requests on those old videos I did years ago. I'm updating all of the Cakewalk videos I did for SONAR Platinum to Cakewalk by Bandlab. There are three videos currently online, with 4 more already scheduled to come out this week. Please share this playlist with anybody who is getting started with Cakewalk by Bandlab. I am starting from the very basics and will work all the way through mixing an entire song. It will take a few weeks, but it will be worth it. 😎
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
I seem to recall that I used to be able to drag an FX Chain preset from the browser onto the FX bin on a track. If I am misremembering this, I would like to have this functionality. Even better, I would like there to be an option to just import the individual effects (and not the wrapper) similar to the way you can do that by shift-clicking on the open button when you do it from the menu.
