New updates don't allow sinewave automation anymore

Recommended Posts

Hey all, loving the continuous development of cakewalk!

 

I used to be able to use the sinewave pencil tool on automation lanes but it seems to only be drawing a sine for a tiny while, then it changes to the "Random" style regardless of the tool I use. Anyone know if this is a known issue or being corrected?

 

I've attached a video. (This is the absolute latest version btw, 2019.07 build 79. It looks like it's been doing this since at least the 2019.07 update, but I haven't composed in a while and wanted to do a panbrello. Will have to improvise with other options for now)

If I follow the steps in  your video, I get the same result.

However, as long as you stay within the clip automation lane area, the sine wave drawing seems to be fine. It only gets "random" when you move the mouse cursor outwith the automation lane, however as soon as you move back into the lane (and release the left click / reapply left button again), it reverts back to being a sine wave.

Maybe this behaviour is intentional, but I guess the fix for this would be to limit anything outwith the automation lane to either max value (for above) or min value (for below).

Or stop drawing altogether.

I have not used this function but I would not expect drawing to continue when the pencil tool is outside the automation lane.

So it seems with some playing that yes it does seem to happen when you're drawing outside the track's lane, so it's an easy work-around.

That doesn't change the fact that it never used to have this behaviour, though. If anything, if you draw outside the lane, it should just maximize and not glitch out.
