Hi,

Please could we have a High Definition GUI for Cakewalk Bandlab please! I find the currently GUI slightly blurred and the graphics are also quite pixelated compared to other DAW’s I use ( Cubase, Studio One ).

Please share what video display system you are using so that we can get a better idea. I use a pair of 23" monitors with an nVidia cared and the GUI looks fine.

Are you on 4K? What GPU?

Hi. I’m using the built in graphics card on an Asia Z390a motherboard. My monitors are quite old and not 4k but Cakewalk looks slightly blurred compared to Cubase 11 and Studio One on the same screen!? I guess it feels quite dated?

I'm running both 1080p on some systems and a 5120x1440 screen on my main DAW and it's as crisp as any other app on all of them.

Are you running any custom scaling or anything like that?

Yep. Nothing blurry here. Crispy clean and sleek. On the same level as other DAWs.

4K 47 inch monitor here. Have not noticed it being any less crisp then Studio One or others that I use. Some have complained that some menu's text look more blurry but I have not noticed that.

I think it's more about the Windows scaling than Cakewalk's here. I used to have my Window's interface scaling as the default 150% on my 1920×1080 resolution laptop screen and Cakewalk looked a bit blurry then tbh. After I reduced the interface scaling to 100% in Windows settings and started using Cakewalk (which by the way looked much more spacious now as compared to before) it's UI started looking a lot more crisp. Maybe @Richard Penrose is facing the same issue here, he might need to reduce the interface scaling in Windows settings.

This could be related to Windows cumulative updates not installed on the system.

I normally run 4 monitors from a pair of nVidia dedicated PCIe cards, but had to use the on board z390a chipset video for some troubleshooting and found that it would max out on my HD monitors at only 720 lines, hence was a bit fuzzy. 

Nothing like having dedicated GPU 's...

Have you enabled EnableWin10DPIAwareness=1 in Cakewalk.ini ?

This can be edited in Preferences | File | Initialisation File

FWIW That setting is highly experimental, and not recommended.

Will it ever become non - experimental ?

I just tried experimental EnableWin10DPIAwareness=1 option (introduced back in 2021.04) when using 125% scaling in Windows, but I couldn't see any improvement in clarity. Does anyone else see a difference?

Would be awesome if the DPI awareness got some love, at some point in the future! 👍
