Cakewalk SONAR X3 Producer Edition ( Update To Version E) Utorrent

For details on setting the click and checking its status, press INSERT+H to access CakeTalking's Quick Hotkey Help, press the letter P to focus on the entry for "Playback, Record, and Rewind", and press ENTER. Review the list of CT's hotkeys including those for toggling the click. Here are instructions for reviewing and changing other parameters of the metronomic click using SONAR's menus. To turn on metronome:In the Options menu, select Project Options, then the Metronome tab. Find the output combo box. This combo box sets the place where the audio metronome sound will be produced. More than likely, it is set to a physical output (one of the outputs on your audio interface). However, you can change it to output to any of the buses in your project. All of the AAA templates for CT are preconfigured with a Master bus, and, if you are using them, you should be able to select the Master bus as the output for the metronome. Now, when you save your project, the metronome click will be part of the mix.Be careful when working this way. You might run into some situations where you won't be able to hear the count-in if you don't already have audio tracks in the project, for example.Q: How do I change default metronome options?A: Metronome options are in the Options menu, in Project Options, on theMetronome tab. Change these to match however you'd like the metronome towork. Any changes you make are only valid for the current project. If youwant them to be the defaults, then you need to make the changes to themetronome options in the template that you use to start your projects.Q: How do I save my current project as the default template?A: To save current project as default template:Under SONAR's file menu choose the "Save AS" entry.Press ALT+G to move to the "goto" combo box, and select "projecttemplates".Press ALT+T to select the type combo box, and select "template". Tab to the list of templates, arrow to the one called "normal", and pressenter.SONAR will ask if you want to replace the file. Answer yes.Q: What key allows you to access the preset browsersinany synths where CakeTalking is capable of selecting presets?A: F4 is the key that will allow you to do this. However, youmust be in the softsynth's properties window when you press F4, or else youmight bring up a completely unrelated menu (such as track view options).Typically, a softsynth's properties window will appear when you first add itto a project. If you want to get back to that window, arrow to a track inthe track pane that is using a softsynth and press CONTROL+y.Remember that all softsynths are not supported by CakeTalking. For a list ofsupported synths, press Insert+h in SONAR to open the CakeTalking help,select the first choice in the menu to open the tutorial documents, andyou'll be presented with a menu that, among other information, includes adocument that lists the supported softsynths.Q: Can you have your very own channel strip plug-in in SONAR8.5?A: Should you wish, you can have your very own channel strip plug-in in SONAR8.5.To make your own strip plug-in Make a new project from the AAA 0 Blank template.Add an audio track. Go to the effects bin, and insert the VC64. Select the track created in step 2. From the track menu, select Clone. In the Clone dialog, enter the numberof audio tracks desired, less the one that you already have. For example, ifyou'd like 16 tracks total, enter 15. You'll now have a project full oftracks with channel strips. To be able to quickly recall this setup later, in the File menu, selectSave As. In the Save As dialog, tab to the Go To combo box, and selecttemplates. Next, go to the Type combo box, and select template. In the namebox, enter something like "16 audio track with channel strip plugs", orwhat-ever you like. Press OK.Now, in the future, when you select New from the File menu, you can selectyour template from the list when making a new project, instead of one of theAAA templates, and you'll start out with a project full of tracks, each witha channel strip plug-in.If you don't like having projects already populated with tracks, preferringto add them one at a time, then simply select one of the tracks that youcreated above, press JAWS Key+- to route the JAWS cursor to the left end ofthe track strip, and right click. This will open the track strip's contextmenu. Arrow down to Save as Template, and press enter. In the dialog thatappears, type a name, like "audio track with channel strip". In the future,when you want to add one of your audio tracks with a channel strippre-configured in to a project, instead of opening the Insert menu andselecting Audio track, open the Insert menu, select Track Templates, thenselect the name of the track template that you created.The X series of SONAR includes some useful features, but the channel strip is areal gimmick. Cakewalk isn't to blame, as all of the DAW manufacturers havebeen doing this, and Cakewalk is probably one of the last to go this route.It is very similar to the per-track EQ feature that was announced severalversions back. Perhaps you remember this new feature? It was the one thatautomatically gives you a 4 band EQ built in to each track, saving you theneed to constantly patch EQ effects in to your effects chains. This is theEQ that you see in the Track Inspector. However, if you've ever gone beyondthe simple settings in the inspector and pressed enter on the EQ graphic toopen the full interface, you'll discover that the EQ is actually the SonitusEQ that has been in SONAR for a long time. SONAR simply adds it to each newaudio track for you with some default settings. Of course, you could haveaccomplished this at any time with a track template.Again, don't be too upset with Cakewalk. They aren't as bad as Avid, afterall. Avid sells an expensive plug-in for Pro Tools called Heat that will addpower/punch and analog warmth to your mixes. HEAT stands for HarmonicEnhanced Analog Technology, because the marketing people told theprogrammers "HEAT sounds hardcore, and the promotional materials havealready been printed up, so think up something that works for that." Youknow it will be totally authentic and subtle because it has a retro lookinginterface with a big knob that you can use to turn up the heat (registeredtrademark). The poor people paying big bucks don't seem to get that it is acompressor that is setup to mimic the saturation curve of analog tape, andthat they could already do all that with the Tape Sim plug-ins that theyalready have. In fact, you can do it in SONAR. Follow the steps above, butinsert the Cakewalk Tape Sim plug-in instead of the VC64. Now SONAR has HEAT(registered trademark). I won't even charge you for the upgrade. Hahaha.Tell all your friends that now SONAR, too, can sound like an authentichissy, crunchy, junky old tape machine. Just be sure to record in 24-bit at192Khz, so you can capture every last subtle crackle and hiss of that oldmagic golden junk.Q: How do you set SONAR to use the QuadCapture for audio?A: To set SONAR to use the QuadCapture for audio, assuming that you've alreadyconnected it to the computer and installed the drivers: Go to SONAR's Options menu, and select Audio. In this dialog box, switchto the Advanced tab. Press your tab key until you reach the "driver mode"combo box. Set it to "ASIO". Tab to the OK button, and press it. SONAR mayshow messages about missing audio outputs. You should ignore these messages,and cancel out of the warnings. Before continuing, close SONAR, and re-openit. Back in SONAR, open the Options menu, and select Audio once more. Youshould start on the General tab. Make sure that the combo boxes for"playback timing master" and "record timing master" both show theQuadCapture. If they do, then you should be ready to go, and can skip aheadto my testing notes. If not, continue to step 3. Switch to the Advanced tab again, and press the tab key until you reachthe "device" combo box. Use your arrows to change the setting to theRoland QuadCapture. If you didn't see the QuadCapture selected as theplayback or record timing master in step 2, and you don't see it in the"device" combo box now, then SONAR can't find it on your system. SONAR canonly find/use the QuadCapture if it is connected, and the drivers arecorrectly installed.Testing SONAROnce your settings are correct, you can test SONAR a few ways. If you selected the default template during CakeTalking installation,SONAR will open to a blank project with 16 MIDI tracks, and a number ofaudio tracks. If all is well with your keyboard and QuadCapture, you shouldbe able to play notes on the keyboard and hear a piano sound.If you don't hear the piano sound, it is possible that the audio isworking correctly, but the keyboard is not. To test that, you can play oneof the demo projects that are shipped with SONAR. You can install the demoprojects by running the DVD titled "Additional Content" that was in yourSONAR package. The demo projects will be saved on your C drive in theCakewalk Projects folder, under SONAR Sample Content. You need to open oneof the files ending in CWP. Those are Cakewalk Projects.For help with setting up your system, or getting started with CakeTalking,start SONAR, and press Insert+h. When you do, a menu will appear that listsall of the available CakeTalking help. Most options on this menu open handylists of hotkeys, but the first choice leads to a second menu that will giveyou access to all of the CakeTalking reference and tutorial documents. Thesedocuments are also in your Documents folder, in a folder called CakeTalking.Q: How do I control the volume setting of each row in SONAR's Matrix View?A: It is possible to control the volume of the rows, but not easy.Each row has a setting that controls the track where its sound is sent.Therefore, you really want to control the volume of the track where aparticular row is sent.The easiest way to contro
