  1. Hi all! Can someone help me check if this is just a weirdness in my system or a bug? If you use floating windows - a floating PRV in this example - then I cannot switch focus from the main window to the floating PRV, using Windows standard shortcut CTRL+TAB. But once the floating PRV window (or any other floating window) has focus, I can switch it back to the main window with CTRL+TAB. It behaves like this in an empty project for me and I'm not using screensets nor workspaces. I'm on Cakewalk 2022.02 build 039. This is a bit annoying for me, as the biggest keyboard nerd here on the forum... 🤓😉 Thanks! UPDATED July 12: Description with repro I think there are some intermittent issues with CTRL+TAB focus shifting between undocked/floating windows. I have managed to introduce the problem consistently when I open the Browser. As soon as the Browser is opened (undocked and floating as a separate window on my a second screen), I cannot CTRL+TAB focus back to the main Cakewalk window. If I have several undocked windows, focus switches between those, without ever getting back to the main window. The same problem occasionally occurs with an undocked and floating PRV, but I think the Browser is the culprit here too, somehow.
  2. It would be very convenient if it was possible to select multiple clips and rename them all in one operation using the existing keyboard shortcut. Thanks for a great product!
  3. Hello. I'm trying and failing to wrap my head around about VIEWING and EDITING our KeyBoard Shortcuts assignment files. Can any computer gurus suggest a "how to " guide? I've read that we could view / read KBN files in text editors... When I try this, my files are only about 4-7 lines long. I do not know how to manage this. I've tried to open a KBN file in a web browser... no good either... Same thing when I'm trying to open the file in VS CODE. See attached picture as an example A post in our forum seemed to suggest that some data about this ends up in the registry (accessed via REGEDIT, of course)... I'm close to useless when i'm trying to work with REGEDIT. There's got to be a better way... Is there some kind of standard file type for keyboard shortcuts that is used by many different apps? Should I consider a file type like an XML or whatever ?? I'M clueless... ... now... WHY am I asking? (Even if I can realise that my goal here might really just be "overkill"...) Well, my work and my "hobbies" are causing me to test different apps (don't we all...?) and of course my workflow "speed" is greatly impacted every time i'm evaluating / presenting different DAWS and NLEs... Currently, I'm tying to "view" , in a quick and dirty way, keyboard assignments from these applications... hoping I can then put together some kind of my favorite "shortcuts" that could be configured the same for most (if not all) of these. Adobe Audition (That I COULD export to a spreadsheet... yeah) Adobe Premiere DaVinci Resolve Pro-Tools CWBBL... of course... Now I know that some of these apps already have presets to assign Shortcuts like "another app" (the most frequent ones I can see are for PREMIERE and PRO-TOOLS...) I just wanted to see if a super-brain could figure out a better way to address this kind of topic regarding cross-app workflows... ... Because now I just kinda think that the only way for me to go about this right now is to open all of these apps' PDF manuals and just manually copy-paste the listed shortcuts into a spreadsheet (or just export / convert from Acrobat pro... I know... hehe...) ...and that is the end of my "quaterly" topic... I did ask something like this a couple of years ago... could not manage to actually make any progress on this subject up until today... so asking again, sorry. 😊
  4. Hi folks! Working faster in Cakewalk, keeps the creative juices flowing. I reveal the key to this in my latest video! WATCH HERE: https://youtu.be/NhfZEIwDVgc
  5. 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!
  6. 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!
  7. While the bakers does not implement new keyboard shortcuts, I created an alternative solution some functions that I use a lot and that are currently only accessible via mouse. Below are the functions and their respective keyboard shortcuts, which will work via Autohotkey: Unsolo All Tracks: Win+S Piano Roll View-> Transform Toll On/Off: Win+T Piano Roll View-> Transform Toll -> Autofocus (On/Off): Ctrl+Win+T Piano Roll View-> View -> Show Multiple Lanes (On/Off): Ctrl+Win+L To install and use, follow these steps: Install Autohotkey on your Windows. Download "Cakewalk_Alt_Keys.zip" (attached to this post) and unzip in to a folder you want (example, Desktop) Double click on the script "Cakewalk_alt_keys.ahk" to activate it. It will be resident on the Windows task bar. Now, inside CbB, you can use the additional keyboard shortcuts above. Cakewalk_Alt_Keys.zip
  8. 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?
  9. 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?
  10. I made this video to show people how to navigate faster in Cakewalk by using short cuts keys time line shows all short cuts... I hope this helps 😄
  11. Hi everyone, I recently got a usb midi keyboard (the M-Audio Keystation Mini 32 MK3) and I'm rather stumped with how to get it to work. I have it set as the input for midi devices, and it works for a few notes (anywhere between 3-10), then it just stops. The only way to get it to work again is to shut down Cakewalk, unplug the keyboard, plug it back in and reopen Cakewalk, but the same thing happens again. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
  12. Mapping my CAL functions to keyboard shortcuts worked fine on my previous PC, but after installing Cakewalk by Bandlab on my new one I noticed a problem. The CAL functions do not show up in search when I search through functions in the key biding tab. OS: Windows 10 64bit (Edit: I have scrolled down the list of results. I've also tried reinstalling cakewalk and bandlab (as well as reinstallng with firewall and protection settings turned off.) I've also confirmed the proper location of the scripts: Old PC search results: NEW PC SEARCH RESULTS:
  13. 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. 😎
  14. Hi all! Is it possible to set a keybinding for the "Transform Tool" in the piano roll view? I can't seem to find it... 🤔 Thanks!
  15. Cakewalk by BandLab has some awesome keyboard shortcuts built under the hood to save you time. Thought I’d showcase some of my favorites.
  16. Hi all! Am I missing something or is it currently not possible to assign a keyboard shortcut for "Rename clip"? It would enhance workflow a lot if it was possible... And is it just me, or is the Keyboard Shortcuts dialog in Preferences veeeery slow and jerky? It would be awesome if it could get some code optimization love. 😀❤️
  17. HI:) Some wishes for Shortcuts which would make it easier and faster to work: 1. Possibility to type in a number of the track and it is focused, similar to the "," but with giving just a number and focus it. With CAL I can use "TrackSelect", but then it's not focused! Much faster than to use Up and Down with many tracks. 2. Possibility to just select audio and increment or decrement it by an amount. For sure I can keybind GAIN, but if I often use 1,2 or 3 dB it is too slow. I have an Autohotkey Shortcut for these changes, but implemented in CbB would be better. Here the Autohotkey (Ctrl+7,8,9,0 for -3-1+1+3 dB inc/dec) (F4 is bound to GAIN) ============================= ^7:: Send {F4}{Tab}-3{Tab 7}-3{Tab 2}{Enter} Return ^8:: Send {F4}{Tab}-1{Tab 7}-1{Tab 2}{Enter} Return ^9:: Send {F4}{Tab}1{Tab 7}1{Tab 2}{Enter} Return ^0:: Send {F4}{Tab}3{Tab 7}3{Tab 2}{Enter} Return ============================= 3. Possibility to open Prochannel in Console with Hotkey from Track View like in Inspector. With hands on Keyboard it's nice to open it with Ctrl+I, but then the focus now is in the Inspector and you can't select any other track with the keyboard until you click with the mouse in the track view. (Shift Down and Up helps to focus back to track window) I have an Autohotkey for that, first I have to focus a track and then the hotkey opens the Prochannel in the multidock console. Involve in CbB would be much better! CtrlAlt+ Up for Opening, Ctrl+Alt+Down for closing Prochannel. Now I can work in PC with Midi Controller and "NOT" Mouse. (I don't like mouse) Ctrl+NUMPAD Enter is bound to open PC Module. ============================ ^!Up:: Send, , Send, {Ctrl down}{Shift down}{Left}{Shift up}{Ctrl up} Send, {Ctrl down}{Shift down}{right}{Shift up}{Ctrl up} Send, {Ctrl down}{Enter}{Ctrl up} Return ^!Down:: Send, {Ctrl down}{Enter}{Ctrl up} Send, {Ctrl down}{TAB}{Ctrl up} Return =========================== 4. Possibility to open PluginWindows or SynthWindows on selected tracks and posssibility to switch between them. (Switch between the Plugins and the Synth) (Maybe switch through all plugins and synths) I have this with AZController, working perfect with Plugins but not with Synthtracks. Integrated in CbB it would be very fast to work with ACT. 5. Possibility to open Flyout Window of PC EQ. Have an Autohotkey for that (mouseclick), but doesn't work always for the modules changes sometimes and with that the mouseclick positions. With normal PC it works fine ============= ^j:: Click 135,310,1 Send, {PgUp}{PgUp} Click 165,450,1 Return ============== 6. Possibility to transpose selected notes per octave down and up. Very often I do change notes per octave especially for the right chord position in the mix for laydowns and synths, piano a.s.o. Often have to change the lowest note up or the highest note down. With Transpose you always have to type in 12 or -12, very nervy! I have made a CAL for that and keybound it to Ctrl+NUMPAD 8 and 2, like 8 and 2 changes the notes 1 up and down. Would be better without CAL. 7. Possibility to change the velocity with Shortcuts. Have CAL scripts for that and bound to Ctrl+(+/-)+/-1 and Ctrl+Shift+(+/-)+/- 3, same as the other shortcuts, better integrated in CbB. 8. Especially for me would be a possibility to give in notes in the PRV like in a staff program, choose the note with keyboard (c,d,e,f,g,a,b,), the duration with Numpad, 3,4,5,6,7 for sixteenth to half notes and after giving all in it steps further like in steprecord, but with the PC Keyboard. (For sure, better staffview were much better) That's what I remember for the moment, I think there will be more wishes in future.... Thanks;) Bassman Velocity +1.cal TrackSelect.cal Transpose -12.cal Transpose +12.cal Velocity +3.cal Velocity -3.cal Velocity -1.cal
  18. Hi, everyone! Anyone else experiencing this issue? The Problem When I have a clip selected, and press the numpad shortcut keys for nudge, nothing happens. I can nudge using the menu, but not with keyboard shortcuts. The Details Win10 on Win7 Prof, HP Pro Desktop, i5 Processor. Other shortcut keys are working fine: L for looping, N for snap on/off, etc I've confirmed that Number Lock is on and can key numbers : 123456789. I've checked Preferences, everything appears to be set up correctly for nudging. Thanks, Kevin
  19. Hello all, LONG time Cakewalk and Sonar user here. I just made the move to the new forums and I like it so far. However I think I have found a bug, or at least have a question. I remap some of my key binds, specifically the horizontal and vertical zoom in to my arrow keys. Left arrow to make all of them shorter or longer and up and down arrow keys to make the I\O's taller or skinnier. The horizontal works perfectly fine, however the vertical only partially works. When I hit up or down on the arrow keys to make the I\O's taller or skinnier, it works. However, regardless of which I\O I currently have selected, it always scrolls down to the bottom I\O. This is kind of annoying as I use these keys a LOT and have to constantly scroll back up to my current I\O's that I'm working on. For example, I will have 20 I\O's and I'm currently highlighted on I\O #4 and I want to make the strip a bit taller (or shorter) I would adjust it and then it always scrolls down to the very bottom I\O, in this case, I\O #20. I checked my key binds and have them correctly configured. Is this a bug or something? I don't remember this happening in any other versions of Sonar, as I have done this key binding to all versions of my Cakewalk products.
