    Pro Audio 8. When I move the pan and volume controls on the console they will revert to a previous setting when I restart play or exit the project and return. Anyone?

    Yep, they fixed this problem in version 9.

    To get around it, turn off update in the console view ([U], or the button third from the right). Position the faders how you want them. Rewind to the beginning of the song, then push [S] in the console view (or the button with the camera on it) to take a 'snapshot' of the console settings, then push [U] again.

    This is a side effect of allowing the console to be automated, Cakewalk 8 views the settings on the track view as part of the automation, and resets to them at the start: changes on the console view don't change the track view's values.

    Frustrating, isn't it?

    cwillu; Yes, it is frustrating. Thanks very much for the response. Better than tech support at Cakewalk. I've been setting all that stuff with the draw controllers until now. I did call the sales dept. and the salesman uses 9 and thought 8 should do the same. Looks like they were wrong again. I haven't tried it yet but will right now. I think I will have to break down and get 9 as everyone has good things to say about it. Only $79 for the upgrade, I believe. How does that tape sim sound? And the amp sim?

    cwillu; Ya it works. What a pain in the butt. And to think it only took 9 releases to do it. Thanks again. And thanks to the Dragon for having a place to get help.

    thanks guys. I had this same problem. I sometimes marvel at the "great software engineering" minds that don't thank of the fact that maybe if we moved sliders, that we'd want them to stay put...

    I finally got a response from Cakewalk. They said release 8 and 9 are the same in that respect. He said to leave the update button up which I tried many times and it just didn't work quite that way. It's a good thing this website is here.

    actually, this problem only came into existance with version 7, version 6 and prior did it the usable way.

    oh well, such is life before cakewalk 9.

    Well I got CWPA9 and it's still doing it. Now what? Maybe I should mention that it is doing it with songs I recorded using version 8. Maybe the settings somehow came along with the version 8 stuff. There was a point when I was loading the 9 program when it asked If I wanted to retain the version 8 settings. Maybe I should completely uninstall and reload from scratch. Or maybe it just comes along with the individual songs. I guess I should try it with a song recorded using ver 9. Any opinions would be welcome in the meantime.
