Control Surfaces/ACT / Deckboard and MacroDeck with sonar or cakewalk bandlab
« Last post by F0h on August 19, 2019, 01:25:23 AM »
Hello Cakewalkers,
I try Deckboard to send macros to windows and cakewalk and sonar...
It works fine with sonar x3 (on windows 7 home 32bits) but doen't work on cakewalk bandlab (on windows 10).
I would like to know is there something in configuration that I have to use...
On windows 10 Deckboard and MacroDeck work perfect with makemusic finale, csound-cabbage, etc, etc.

Any idea?

Cheers.

Julio.

Hm.. after I've picked up non-professional music production projects again (after many years), CbB seemed a good choice at first: 'SONAR Platinum for free'. However, after considering BandLab's 'free' licensing model and reading azslow3's post explaining his reasons for seizing further development on AZ Controller for SONAR / CbB, I seriously consider moving to Reaper aswell -especially as I currently don't have too many existing projects that require converting.

One should question what BandLab's reason was for releasing a free version of a full-featured DAW. Building a Facebook-alike community of musicians/producers? Sooner or later only allow free use of CbB if you actually share your projects in their community? Only continue free use in exchange for royalties for any published work?

With this in mind I'll definitely give Reaper a try.

Discussions / X-Touch One (overlay: Cubase) - little help needed
« Last post by Jashk@ on August 16, 2019, 01:12:39 AM »
Dear friends,

Please find attached an SPP file including a preset for X-Touch One (under MC operating mode).
This file includes 3 presets:
- X-Touch One (Custom 6) : the preset published earlier in this forum by Boblev (THANK YOU!);
- X-Touch One - overlay:none : based on (Custom 6), tweaked to meet default layout (MC) on the device itself;
- X-Touch One - overlay:Cubase : based on (Custom 6), tweaked to meet the Cubase overlay sheet.

I have also attached 2 PDF files that list the functionality after my modifications. Personally I prefer the mapping according to the Cubase overlay sheet, as it contains the functionalities I use the most, thus is very efficient & time saving.

If you have already installed AZ Controller, you can add this SPP file via the Import button in the Cakewalk Plugin Manager.

Not exactly being a programmer myself, I do need some help with a few minor things: I hope AZSlow3 or boblev can help.

1. The knob above the fader wasn't fully mapped, so I've created hardware controls VPotPush1 thru 8. When I push the knob, I'd like to set the balance for the selected track to 0 (center). How do I do that? (what should be in my action list)

2. I've mapped F5 and F6 to toggle Automation Read and Automation Write on the selected channel. This works fine, but I'd very much like to see the LEDs of these buttons work as well. Can you help me with this? This, by the way, is only required for the 'overlay:Cubase' presets; the others don't have this functionality.

Have fun with the presets; I hope they are of any use to readers out there, and I hope I can get some help with the 2 questions above.

Kind regards,
Jashk@

Bugtracker / Import/export of preset files (in .txt format)
« Last post by Jashk@ on August 14, 2019, 08:35:49 PM »
Hello!

On the Options tab of AZ Controller, there are import/export buttons which -I assume- are used to export and import all settings of my surface. I managed to export my settings as .txt file, so I could watch and explore them in my text editor. However, when I try to import the file again, a dialog pops up saying the file is invalid or corrupted. This also happens if I didn't even change/modify the text file.

 This occurs in AZControl 0.5r8 b398.

Is this a known problem? Or can you please have a look at it? To me it's not urgent, but it would be a great help for me to explore and make minor adjustments to the presets outside AZ Controller.

Kind regards,
Jan

Discussions / Komplete Kontrol mk2 preset
« Last post by educampi on August 04, 2019, 02:48:13 PM »
Hello,
Since Native Instruments implemented MCU a few weeks ago, I looked into making a preset for Komplete Kontrol S MK2 series keyboards to work as they usually work in other DAWs.

I didn't manage to make the same mapping cause some controls are not sending any MIDI command at all, and some things I just couldn't figure it out, but it does work for the most part.

I'm attaching the preset, and a brief explanation of what each control does.

Cakewalk/CbB has dropped one of primary advantages I saw in Sonar: offline authorization. CbB, while free, is even worse in that respect. It EXPIRE at its own will (not even showing when exactly).


this is why i do not support bandlab version also .. the download manager is also needed to join the forum ...

im not on that either

best wishes to you AZ :)

I have written that in http://www.azslow.com/index.php/topic,400.0.html

Cakewalk/CbB has dropped one of primary advantages I saw in Sonar: offline authorization. CbB, while free, is even worse in that respect. It EXPIRE at its own will (not even showing when exactly).
They have not really "compensated" with anything serious, MIDI routing still does not exists, MIDI processing is still archaic. Audio engine was not advanced in 20 years.

REAPER, while supporting more surfaces then CbB, has no AZ Controller (like) thing (there is one project on-going, but I see several problems with approach they have chosen). So when I want to use controller, I start Sonar or CbB.

Sorry to hear.

I doubt CbB will ever be my DAW again, in fact I am still using it periodically just because there is no AZ Controller (yet) for the new DAW...

Can I ask why you dropped Sonar/CbB and mobed to Reaper, and what you mean by "because there is no AZ Controller (yet) for the new DAW..."

On a side note, I hope there will be done work by Bandlab to make controllers more compatible with CbB in the future upgrades.
