Here is a short video of issue #3 from my previous post. As you can see, once the copied section is dropped, all the clips in the project are packed together and shifted all the way to to beginning of the timelines. I can provide project, can you provide an upload location for it?

DxDiag runs successfully on this machine. I do lots of WPF programming work which uses DirectX on this box and I've not had and DX-related display issues with it.

 

@Kevin Walsh use any service like dropbox or google to upload your file and share a link with us via PM.

I'm finding that when I open Preferences-Themes, Cakewalk takes quite a while, about 30 seconds, to open the Themes dialogue box.  It's always been instantaneous in earlier versions I've used.

This only happens right after I open CW for the first time.  Any subsequent attempts to open Preferences-Themes is instantaneous, as expected.

I am having same issue, renaming doesn't work and the dialogue box gets stuck.   The dialogue box in the arranger track seems very buggy.  Cannot change colors.  I have to undo to get it to disappear.  Even when I minimize Cakewalk to write on this forum, the arranger dialogue box doesn't disappear.  Nuts! I was hoping to learn this new feature quickly but too many bugs to even try to use it...I have a fairly new machine with Intel graphics card.   DXdiag doesn't show any problems..

Section Type must be defined, I think that was the issue...

 

@jsg - You shouldn't have to set a section type to rename or set color.  Are you sure you're not confusing the set color dialog with the edit section type dialog?

The edit section type dialog will not disappear until the fields are valid.  In fact, unless you're going to be using arranger templates there's absolutely no reason to set a section type at all.

To rename, select the section and press F2 or select rename from the context menu.

To set color, right click and select the color from the presets or click the ellipses to get the color dialog:

rename_change_color.gif

The color dialog is Microsoft's built-int color chooser dialog - it's part of the operating system. There shouldn't be anything buggy with it, otherwise it'd be affecting all applications.

Hi, I have noticed that the piano roll view always says 'multiple tracks'

When it happens, it happens like this:

1. Select a section in the Arranger inspector

2. Right-mouse click on the section

3. Select "Rename"

4. In the text box that appears type in the new name

5. Try to dismiss the dialog either with the return key, tabbing out or clicking elsewhere to change focus. 

At this point, no matter where you click on the UI, the textbox retains focus and you get the familiar "ding" sound notification from windows letting you know that you're doing something wrong. 

Again, this doesn't happen often, but once it does, you have to restart the app.

Noel, do I need to zip up the entire project folder or is the project file sufficient? I would think the former but just want to be sure.

 

Update: PM sent with an upload location for the project

Thanks msmcleod,

I'm just learning the Arranger section so it may be user-error.  I am figuring it out...

I ran into an issue a couple of times today. I was zoomed in on the timeline to find an audible glitch in a waveform. I then pressed play. Playback started, and of course, the fully zoomed-in timeline is scrolling by very quickly at this point. All expected... but Cakewalk stopped responding to all inputs at this point. I could not stop playback by pressing the spacebar or the stop button on my control surface. I could not change the zoom level. Playback would just continue and eventually Cakewalk would respond to key presses from 15-20 seconds prior. This is on a Ryzen 3900x system.

@sreams check your PM. I'd like you to do a test with a build that should address this issue.
If anyone else had this same issue reproducibly and would like to test a build, PM me.

I sent it to msmcleod and I've just now invited you to the conversation, my bad.

Got it thanks. Mark will take a look at it tomorrow.

I don't know if this issue is unique to the early adopter release, but here it is anyway. I'm trying to increase the gain of a clip in a small area, but after applying the new gain automation, the waveform view shows the wrong area being increased. If I bounce it to a clip it becomes apparent that the correct area of the clip was modified and that the waveform view was incorrect. Here's a video of the draw edit. You'll have to take my word for it that the gain is actually increased in the correct place. ;)

Hi Kevin,

Looks like this is an issue with there being a "Jump" (the dotted line rather than solid) between the node you drew and the one where the envelope resumes. I went ahead and logged that to fix when we get a chance, but if you right-click the dotted part and switch it to "linear" or any other shape, it should draw correctly. Thanks!

Small issue - I seem to be no longer able to scroll the control bar with my mouse wheel.  It used to scroll horizontally but that seems to not work any longer.

 

 

Thx folks for keeping my favorite DAW alive and well !

I've been abusing 08 all day and it is definitely  feeling good. 
I know we touched on this before but what was the verdict about setting the now time using ANY    tool as long as you click on a blank area of the track(s)? It's a tad time-consuming to be using for instance the    eraser to clean tracks but you have to keep going up to the ruler to set a new now time.

@Michael Heavner we asked you for a project file to forward to waves but did not hear back.  they need that for further investigation. Can you please supply us a link to the project file?

 I believe Waves hasn't supported the "free" the Studio Rack since v8 or v9 when development stopped, it had always been problematic, all listed in their Support FAQ, and no they won't respond to any unsupported/outdated products any more then Bandlab will support SONAR 6 PE. 😉

I've been running 2020.07 fairly hard for over a week now, with no issues.

I was about to report an annoying issue with 2020.05 about getting a "CANNOT FIND FILE" dialog box after freezing Synth tracks, which was weird because I didn't notice any files missing, nor did it have any noticeable effect. 🤷🏼‍♂️

However that hasn't happen with 2020.07

@sreamsInteresting. I wonder if it is so busy redrawing that it's not getting a chance to process the stop request. Can you reproduce this or was it a one off issue?

I just saw this issue happen twice yesterday, but in the latest official release (rather than the Access/Beta).  So it seems like the issue may have been there already, though it’s an interesting coincidence that it just happened to me.

 I was zoomed in quite a lot in the track view, and with the gain envelope showing.  After pressing play, my requests to stop were ignored for about 15 seconds.  The screen was not responsive though it did continue scrolling in the timeline as well as playing back perfectly fine.

@Variousartist this should be fixed in the final release. Several testers have already confirmed that its ok now. 
I've optimized the code so that it will throttle back and consume less UI bandwidth freeing up processing of input messages.

@Kevin Walsh - We've identified the issue here, and it has been fixed for the main release.  The issue only seemed to appear when there were "jumps" (gaps) in the envelope.
