Here is another:
 
Can we please have nameable, saveable external inserts?
I am beginning to use them en mass as I have 16 i/o ports to use.
 
This has resulted in 3 "External Insert" plugs with no other identifying attributes other than that.
It would be nice if after setting up the i/o ports, I could name it like "PCM 80" and have the i/o config saved with that configuration. This way if I wanted to add an instance of the PCM 80 hardware I could pick it from a menu and the last i/o pin setup used and saved with it would load.
 
Thank you.
 


I haven't been using this much lately, but I would love this addition too... of fourse, it 'seems' simple?

Yet another request for something we already have. The GUI for the external insert has a dropdown for loading/saving presets.

How about a Track Delay function that allows users to delay a Track to create a stereo effect when tracks are duplicated and combined?

It would be nice if the External Insert could have the preset loaded name in it's name string - just in the tool tip would be fine as I know "External Insert" must be it's plugin display name. The tooltip could expound upon that to limit confusion.
 
Today I discovered Convert to FxChain when right clicking my external insert. I did that and renamed it the fx name and everything and was so happy and bumbed that I bugged y'all about it but alas, the output (return) from the external insert gets set to NONE and cannot be set otherwise, further more doing so seem to give the audio engine fits. so - yeah.

It would be good to have multiple preferences "profiles", which would store all your preferences settings under a profile name. You could then swap between them.
 
Sometimes use different ASIO (or even WDM) devices, MIDI devices & Control Surface settings for tracking certain projects compared to others, and a fairly standard setup for mixing. 
 
Currently I have to resort to copying various backups of AUD.INI,TTSSEQ.INI & Cakewalk.ini around - and even then this invariably leaves things out that need tweaking afterwards.
 
Being able to switch quickly between these would be great.

I really prefer the workflow on CbB, but I've been using SO4, mainly for the chord track, I would like to see a chord track in CbB so I could get back to the workflow I like.

I can't figure why is not the same to clik on "New Project" under File menu, than to do it under Start Screen. Whilst under File menu you can customize tempo, meter, bith depth and sample rate, under Start Screen you can't customize anything. In my point of view, they should be two ways to do the same, both taking you to the same "New Project File" menu to customize everything.

The start screen is for recent projects, and new projects based on existing templates. The point of it is so it's quick.
 
If you want to customise everything, use the New Project under the menu.

The Mackie MCU + C4 is a good combination, as are any of the Mackie clones.
 
I personally use an original Mackie MCU + Mackie Extender, with 2 x C4's. This gives me 16 motorised faders + 1 motorised master fader, transport control, loads of function buttons on the MCU.
 
The two C4's each give me two banks of 32 endless controller knobs (with a display for each knob) for controlling two separate plugins - I default them to Track Compressor and EQ, but I can scroll through all of my plugins and control them with the knobs.
 
There's loads of others out there, the most prominent being the Presonus FaderPort series, the Behringer X-Touch series and the Icon Q series.
 
For those on a budget, IMHO you can't beat the Korg NanoKontrol Studio (no motorised faders, but still a dream to use).

Hi Meng,
 
2 requests;
 
1. Can the 'Process -> Apply Effect -> Gain' pull down menu also be added as a right-click menu-option.
2. Can the Marker Sections be colour-coded (e.g. verse - blue / bridge - red etc).
 
Thanks.

Hi Bakers!
 
Most likely this was asked before...
VST's draining a lot of CPU on muted tracks, until you manually disable them on these muted tracks.
I feel it would be very beneficial to have an option to: Disable VSTs on muted tracks (and enable them when track is un-muted) automatically.
 
Some VST's (Izotope for example) are very CPU hungry and less than a dozen of muted tracks with VSTs not disabled manually take 25-30%+ of CPU on the top of active load.
 
Thank you for considering.

Rather than mute them, Archive them  (the button with an "A" in it) - this is exactly what archive was created for.

Mark, yes it is a workaround, but I think global FX on/off for muted tracks would be faster and better in sense that it could be done in one press of the button.

It is only one button press when not counting the clicks to mute. Archive is actually one less click when the mutes are counted (as they should be) because archive automatically bypasses FX eliminating the need for an FX toggle. Archive also disconnects synths, something the FX bypass does not do. Archived audio clips are not read from disk also something FX bypass does not do.

I guess it is a thing with workflow thing. For me to see "A" (archive) and have all the things I need on the track menu it has to be expanded in such way, that it takes about 30% of the screen space. I guess I have to re-learn some bits of workflow.

Hello!
 
Could you please speed up the performance of the Cakewalk Plug-in Manager, especially for people with extremely large amounts of plug-ins? I'll admit to being a plug-in hoarder, but I've also got 32GB of RAM. Shouldn't that help speed up the program?
 
Thank you!

Hi. Long-time Cakewalk/Sonar User here...

1) Bugs!!! They all must go... It is a matter of integrity and should be any companies top priority, especially for software that has been around as long as Sonar has... and which has been under constant development (aka: Rolling Updates) since Sonar X1.

2) MIDI - Back in the day when Memory, Processing, and Storage were expensive, much was done to improve the way MIDI functioned to produce AUDIO. Now that the aforementioned is relatively cheap, it seems much of the development in the past 15 or so years has gone towards improving Audio, which is not a bad thing but I’m afraid MIDI development has been neglected. There are keyboards being manufactured now without MIDI ports, which is a shame since MIDI, from it’s conception, was supposed to be about standardization and compatibility. FINE, add a USB jack but leave the MIDI Jacks, so we have compatibility with our vintage gear! Now with MPE and IOS integration...how quickly we forget.

3) Specifically, LOGIC, or at least in the old days, before Apple, their used to be an “Environment” page where there were all these different objects you could drag and connect with your mouse...It gave you a very visual oversight as to what was going on ROUTING wise (Again, mainly for MIDI) but you could easily route a multi channel instrument and split it to various destinations and be able to actually have a good idea what is happening when you open a project you completed 6 months ago... I don’t have a MAC so I’m not sure how they are doing it today but I believe SONAR, or whatever the name is going to be, would greatly benefit...much as the Skylight Interface helped to visualize a Recording Environment, in a system where anything can be virtually routed to almost anywhere, this sort of virtual patch bay/wiring diagram I believe is a necessity. Frankly, I’m surprised nobody has thought to include this GUI. The Track/Arrangement view is not the ideal place for it and frankly, with the Patch Points and Auxillary connections, it actually clutters that screen, though the idea of adding the connection points is needed, you should be able to just drag a line from one object to another and then back again...

4) Get rid of the dead weight... Personally, the .cal scripts never did nothing for me and though the rest of the platform has been developed consistently, .cal and the instrument configurations have not been updated for several major releases. I appreciate application integration if it helps with performance, otherwise, it’s just one more place for something to go wrong and crash the whole Program...

5) Control Surfaces - This needs to be on the leading edge, with all the new generation controllers that are now available (E.G. Roli Seaboard). It would be great if someone would produce a mapping system that actually worked...or one that could be easily assembled by again dragging objects (faders, knobs, switches, buttons, etc) and assignigning them to hardware counterparts. That way you don’t have to wait for a template to be made for every one of a gazillion devices one may want to control. I’m sure that would probably require a collaborative effort but I see it as being very do-able and essential.

I could be living in a Virtual World, but that’s the way I see it...in Detail....
