Cakewalk Sonar: Presets

Menu

Cakewalk Sonar

 

Presets are a way to store property page settings so that you can recall the exact same group of settings again in the future. Effects and soft synths use presets, and so do some other functions youíll find in certain dialogs.
You manage presets with the Presets section that appears at the top of a plug-in property page, and the buttons next to the Presets box.
A. Presets menu displays the name of the current preset B. Previous/Next Preset buttons C. Save Preset button D. Delete Preset button E. The VST button preset controls appear only on VST plug-ins F. ACT Learn button G. Open view H. Solo button I. Automation read and write buttons J. Send all keystrokes to this plug-in button

 

The Presets menu displays presets in the following order:
list-image
Most Recently Used presets. These appear at the top of the Presets menu, up to 8 in number, and followed by a horizontal line to separate this section from the next section of the menu.
list-image
VST factory presets. Any VST factory presets appear below the Most Recently Used section, and are also followed by a horizontal separator line.

Cakewalk and user presets. These appear at the bottom of the Presets menu.

A VST factory preset. These can not be deleted or overwritten (the Delete button appears greyed-out). If you want to change one of these, double-click the name, enter a new name, and click the Save button.
Note: VST presets can be stored by saving a .fxp file (see the following instructions).

A Cakewalk or user preset. Either save these under a new name: double-click the name, enter a new name, and click the Save button, or just click the Save button to overwrite the preset with current values.
VST factory presets can not be deleted. If youíre not using a VST factory preset, simply display the preset name in the Presets window, and then click the Delete button.
Use the Load Preset or Save Preset commands, respectively, in the VST button drop-down menu
Use the Load Bank or Save Bank commands, respectively, in the VST button drop-down menu
The Presets window also has a feature called Preset Dirty Flags. A Preset Dirty Flag is an asterisk that appears next to the name of the preset. The asterisk tells you that you changed and saved this particular preset in another project, and the settings in the current project are different from the saved version. If you re-save the preset in the current project with the current settings, the asterisk disappears, but will reappear in the other project, showing you that the displayed settings in that project are different from the last saved version of the preset. If you want to get rid of the asterisk in all projects, save the preset in each project with the exact same settings.

Automation read and write buttons. These buttons enable or disable automation playback and recording for the plug-inís parameters. See Automation for more information.

Keystrokes button. Enabling this button sends all keystrokes to a particular instance of a plug-in when the plug-inís property page has focus.
Solo button  is available on all plug-in property pages, which allows you to quickly solo the track or bus that the effect is inserted on while adjusting the plug-in. The Solo button functions the exact same way as the Solo button on the source track/bus.
