2021.06 Highlights

 

"Modern Standby" support and improved Power Management 

  • Added support for "Modern Standby" a new power management feature introduced in Windows 10 build 2004.
    Modern Standby mode is supported by some PC's (typically modern laptops). Modern standby is different from the traditional sleep modes and has to be specially handled by the application in order to suspend and resume hardware properly.
  • Improved handling for resuming from a sleep state in Windows. Cakewalk will additionally reload the driver if necessary, if the driver requests a restart or it stops responding.

  • Suspend and resume are properly handled when a dialog box is open.

Handle VST instruments that change output counts

If a VST instrument changes its output count, ports in projects previously saved with the instrument could become offset by the change in outputs. This could cause projects to stop playing through other virtual instruments until their instrument track inputs were reassigned.
Cakewalk will now detect change in outputs on opening a project and  automatically reassign ports appropriately with no user intervention required.
 

Bug fixes

  • Fixed crash when exporting single track with "-" in track name and filename
  • Wedge Force Matcha plugin hangs on changing presets in 2021.06 release
  • Projects saved with older versions of Omnisphere open with input ports assigned to incorrect instruments
  • Space bar does not start playback when using Vienna Ensemble Pro
  • Shift + Right Click toggle for Inline PRV causes unexpected lasso selection
  • New projects flagged as modified in 2021.06
  • Extra Synth Instances inserted when adding all synth audio outputs for Split Instrument Track
  • F2 to rename arranger section immediately after drag draw
  • Alt + T in TV View Menu cut off slightly

The rollback link has been replaced with Rebuild 4 which should work, apologies for the inconvenience.

The release notes are pointing to the main current release link, that hasn't changed since this build is in initial Early Access.

Thanks Jonathan.

 

I suspected something of the sort but felt it couldn’t hurt to report "just in case"...

I am happy to report that the rollback installer in the OP works great.

The EA2 doesn't work for me. Projects play for a minute or two and then hang. I rolled back to build 53 and all is normal.

@Base 57 Can you please provide more information? There is nothing we can go on with just a report of a hang.

As far as we know there are no changes that could cause a hang so this could be an independent issue. If you can't repro the hang please capture a dump and send it asap so we can investigate.

What plugins are being used here?

I am involved in a theatre production that runs through the 31st. Yesterday and today are the only days I've had off from that in several weeks. So yesterday I was glad I could roll back and continue working in the studio without much time lost. 

As it was a hang, not a crash there is no minidump. If time permits I will reinstall the EA later today and capture a dump from the Task Manager. Otherwise it will probably have to wait until next week.

For instruments there are 3 Air synths (DB-33, MiniGrand and Hybrid), SD3 and Dexed. Of these only SD3 has associated clips (so far) in the project that was hanging.

For FX there are several instances of Channel Tools, and also BluVerb, Breverb and BT Tempo Delay. All other FX are PC modules.

W10 Pro 20H2. Interface is an Antelope Orion 32+ using the TB driver 1.4.7.147.

They say third time is a charm. 

Yesterday after confirming the rollback worked, I re-loaded EA2 and then did a cold boot.  It hung immediately so I rolled back again and went on with my day.

Today I loaded EA2 again with the intent of capturing a dump with Task Manager but now it won't hang. I've run it for well over an hour with several projects and it is working as it is supposed to. 

So...     🤷‍♂️

Thanks for taking the time to test it, appreciated.
I expect that you ran into a hang that was unrelated to the EA2. This is a relief since there isn't any code in EA2 that I can imagine would cause a hang. In fact I fixed a hang with one VST instrument. Please keep an eye out and report back if you see anything untoward.

If I were to make a calculated guess I would think Air might be a potential cause. We've had issues in the past with some Air plugins.
If you get a hang again use task manager to capture the dump and that should show the stack where the hang occurred.
