Preferences Customization Scripts

Recommended Posts

Many of the threads in this (Feedback Loop) forum section are about a user wanting Cakewalk by BandLab (CbB) to work like another daw instead of the way CbB presently works.   The requests can roughly be divided intro three groups:  feature request, task performance and GUI feedback.

Feature requests are beyond the scope of this thread since the request is typically something another daw offers that Cakewalk by BandLab does not or an improvement to an existing feature.  An example is this link:

Task performance is the steps a user must take to perform a task.   An example is this link:  https://discuss.cakewalk.com/index.php?/topic/4203-markers-delete-button/

GUI feedback is how the daw provides feedback to the user.  An example is this link:  https://discuss.cakewalk.com/index.php?/topic/4572-clip-gain-vs-waveform-ala-pro-tools/

My idea is for Cakewalk by BandLab to add two pagess to the "Customization" section of "Preferences".  One page is for the user to create task performance macros and the second page allows the user to select daw gui emulation.  This idea is for Cakewalk by BandLab to have customization similar to ways Microsoft lets Office users create macros and emulate competitive  products.

The macros page should have buttons to "learn", "edit" and "delete" along with three columns titled "Name", "Macro" and "Enable/Disable".  Each row would contain a macro that would perform whatever task the user has programmed.

The gui emulation page would have a drop down menu with the name of various daws.  Once a competitive daw name is selected a feature list window opens.  Check boxes allows the user to enable or disable a variety of gui features.
