You can patch effects into tracks and buses in the Track view, Track Inspector and Console view. After you patch one or more effects into an FX Rack, you can reorder the effects, delete them, or add new ones.A. An FX Rack in a track in the Track view B. An FX Rack in a bus in the Track viewA.

When you place an effect in an FX Rack, an abbreviated name is used to describe the effect. Sometimes the limited space makes it impossible to identify the effect. If this occurs, simply rest the cursor over the effect for a second or two, and a tooltip will pop up to display the full name of the effect.Effects in FX Racks display lines that tell you whether the effect is outputting a mono, stereo, or surround signal:A. Mono indicatorA. Stereo indicatorA. Surround indicator in buses (in 5.1 mode)If you’re using the 64-bit double-precision audio engine, plug-ins that can send and receive 64-bit data display double lines.A. Stereo indicator in 64-bit modeSome plug-ins, such as the Sonitus:fx Multiband and other dynamics processors, use a look-ahead buffer mechanism, which results in a short delay being introduced to the output signal when the plug-in is used in real-time. Cakewalk’s automatic delay compensation (ADC) takes care of any delays, but you may experience some anomalies when using such a plug-in to process the output of a DXi-especially if Cakewalk is configured to use a high mixing latency. The symptoms include audio that appears to drop out, and/or missed notes (from the MIDI track that is assigned to the DXi). Again, this is more prone to occur with higher latency settings.This may happen if Cakewalk doesn't pump ahead enough MIDI data to compensate for ADC. To fix this problem, go to Edit > Preferences > MIDI - Playback and Recording and increase the Prepare Using [n] Millisecond Buffers value.
