Note draw duration buttons were added to Cakewalk by BandLab 2018.06

CbB is a significant free upgrade to SONAR Artist.


Here is the updated link from scook's post :

The buttons were removed from X-series SONAR and re-introduced in CbB.

Thanks for the historical clarification!! Though I have X1 and X3, at that time I was doing more with a hardware sequencer and just exploring soft synths in X1 / X3 as an alternative.  Not sure if I noticed it.  Glad Cakewalk by Bandlab had the wisdom to add them back!!!  Maybe they will also add the tools back into the Staff View Pane.  (I did notice those were gone from CbB.)

From X3 (looks a bit "sparse").

They are adding back the snap for the next release, although I think that they said that Staff view will obey the Global snap function and not have its own.  That's good enough for me and bandlab I thankyou very much indeed.

Fantastic!  I've been trying it out and I'm pleased that the staff view FINALLY has its snap-function restored.  This really helps a lot!!!

Can't wait to finish testing and then install it on my DAW...

Thank you!

Jerry

I think so.  I've been testing it this afternoon and it's a delight.  So much better with snap than without.  As soon as the official new version is  released I'll install it on my DAW.  My first upgrade since the final version of Sonar....Yippee!!

Oh my goodness. You have a lot of catching up to do Jerry :D

I hope the newest version will be to your liking and you will pump out some more orchestration works for us to listen to.

I'm working on the ending of the 1st movement of a new symphony, hope to have it done by the end of August...

In case you hadn't noticed, you  no longer must hold the Ctrl key to get your fully-active right-click context menu.

It's not just the snap feature that's been amended per your requests....

Speak up, they need to know that it's now really working the way you all wanted it to.😊

Yep, I noticed that too.  As soon as the new version is finalized I'm going to download it onto the DAW.  I'm hoping it will be as stable as the final version of Sonar has been on my Windows 10 machine. (even though the lack of snap in the staff view drives me nuts).

One thing I've noticed with the upcoming new version:

Even when the global snap is turned OFF, the snap function still seems to work in the staff view  Hmm?  Is that by design?

Well, cross your fingers!

I don't consider a program truly "stable" until I can forget to exit it and leave it running overnight and then sit down and it hasn't frozen or crashed. Cakewalk passed that threshold quite some time ago, to the point where I don't even think about it any more.
