Stationary playhead while playing track (Optional feature/ playhead stays in place while track waveforms are moving )

Recommended Posts

Hello guys. I would like to propose a feature that will allow the user to make the playhead stationary when playing the track instead of the waveforms moving.

 

This would be very helpful in monitoring tracks. 

 

Thanks.

Only those with very high end machines would be able to take advantage of such a feature and maintain glitch free play back at the same time.  Most people would simply leave this disabled if it were ever option.

Surely not..pretty sure there are other DAWs that can do this with no problem that have been around for years

That could be a possibility, but it would be nice if that would be available without causing problems.

This feature is common in video editing softwares, it would be nice to have it in cakewalk.

Pretty sure Sonar used to do this, probably around version 6 or 8.  You did have to zoom in to a certain size for it to work, but I'm convinced I've seen it before.

Good idea.  It would be nice to be able to enable or disable the choice as a preference option.  I have the luxury of two computers, one a high power desktop and the other a very old laptop.
