Updated to build 28.02.0.027

This build contains the following additional improvements:

  • Delete Hole fails to ripple Tempo Track if not explicitly selected
  • Aux Track not dimmed with dim solo
  • Editing project while waveforms being built causes process to restart
  • ARA capable plugins fail to work properly when inserted via an FX Rack

 

 

Enhancements

Export Audio dialog:

  • The last used custom export path now persists with the project
  • CTRL+click the file path button to reset path to the default

Track Folder:

  • You can now optionally specify if track folders should automatically expand when moving a track into them. To do so, click the Track view Options menu and select Expand Folder after Moving to Folder.

VST Scan:

  • The following new path has been added to the default scan locations: %LOCALAPPDATA%/Programs/Common/VST3/
    This path is now recommended as part of the VST3 specification, in order to facilitate using plugins on systems without Admin rights as well as to support multiple users on the same PC.

Key Bindings:

  • Mute [UnMute] all tracksSolo [UnSolo] all tracks, and Arm [UnArm] all tracks can now be assigned to keyboard shortcuts in Edit > Preferences > Customization - Keyboard Shortcuts

🙆🏻‍♂️ But with a new bug. When inserting a new synth now - it does not open. 😅

Which method are you using to insert the synth?   I can't see how this would have been affected, as the change was restricted to the Replace Synth command.

@Will_Kaydo - it's working fine here.   It's more likely the "Synth Property Page" checkbox has been unchecked in the Open Synth Properties at some point:

I never use the browser to do inserts. It's working correctly in 21.12.102.

Installed the 22.02 EA now again and we're back to the synth not opening on insert. After ticking that property page box - it works fine again. So, its probably during the install? It's a minor thing.

Let's see if other experience this too. Thanks for the tip on top.

Thanks for the update.  So far I tested a few simple things several different times successfully:

  1. Track Pane Right click > Replace Synth.
  2. Menu > Insert Soft Synth.

:x

It may seem a small thing, but for people like me who like to sketch out ideas using Xpand!2 or TTS-1 and then experiment with different synths, it'll really help stay in the flow.

One of my successful replacement tests was to a TTS-1 (in addition to a few others).

Update: I Inserted Loom, then replaced it with Xpand!2, and then TTS-1.  Worked for me.

No change here. Synth properties opening as expected when inserting an Instrument track

I think its a setting in my template. Replaced/resaved all my templates with the current setting including with some new solo/unsolo/mute/unmute key bindings. Little bit confuse about the Arm, because that still is a default option key with Alt+R

I use the way of creating Synth Track Folder to insert Soft Instrument.
When replacing a soft synth, the folder name created cannot be changed along with it.

It would be better if the folder name could be changed along with it.

Thanks to the development team for continuing to update CbB.

HI:)

>>>[REGRESSION] Tab to Notes in Piano Roll view stops working after Set Measure/Beat At Now

I missed it. But wasn't the next/previous note selected after you press TAB or Shift TAB when you have selected 1 note?

Now after TAB on a selected note the next note is unselected...

 

Thanks;)

Bassman.

Having some trouble with mp3 export options settings. In a saved project they have somehow reverted to some unuual settings and not what I use. I can’t seem to over write the mp3 options and get it to save.

Key Bindings:

Mute [UnMute] all tracks, Solo [UnSolo] all tracks, and Arm [UnArm] all tracks can now be assigned to keyboard shortcuts in Edit > Preferences > Customization - Keyboard Shortcuts

Can we also have this for Create/Remove Selection Group? 🙏

It is missing in the Keyboard Shortcuts menu...

Brilliant! I'll have to wait testing the EA after an upcoming deadline, but these will be great for a fast workflow! 😀

Thanks for listening to us (pinging for example @Rogério! :) ) who've requested these. ❤️

Been seeing periodically intermittent delay/drop outs clicking mute/solo/loop enable and others during play in projects previously not exhibiting this behavior.

When saving a track template containing folders in a nested folder structure, the folders sometime seem to inherit the name of folders on underlying levels when the track template is loaded. See attached video.

Edit: There were no reactions to this post, but even so the issue was fixed in CbB 2022.02 Update 1 EA (Build 28.02.0.037): "Folder names incorrect when loading track template with nested folders". 👍
