*
Mix Recall menu. The Mix Recall menu lets you create, load, save, rename and delete Mix Scenes. The name of the current Mix Scene is shown in the menu. The menu contains the following commands:
*
List of Mix Scenes. List of saved Mix Scenes. Select a Mix Scene to load its mix. If the project contains more than 10 Mix Scenes, the list is shown in a Recall Scene submenu.
*
Recall Previous Scene. Load the previous Mix Scene. This allows you to quickly compare two different mixes by toggling between the two most recent Mix Scenes. The name of the previous Mix Scene is shown in parenthesis.
*
Reset Mix. Reset all mix parameters to their default values and clear any automation envelopes. This command only applies to the settings that are selected in the Mix Recall Settings dialog box (see To configure Mix Recall settings and Mix Recall Settings dialog).
*
Save Scene. Save the current mix to the selected Mix Scene. If no Mix Scene is selected, a new Mix Scene (and .cwm file) is created.
*
Save As New Scene. Save the current mix to a new Mix Scene.
*
Rename Scene. Rename the selected Mix Scene. Note: this command only creates a friendly name for the current project; it does not rename the actual .cwm (Cakewalk Mix Scene) file that is stored on your computer’s hard disk since the Mix Scene might also be used by other projects.
*
Delete Scene. Delete the selected Mix Scene. Note: this command only removes the project’s reference to the Mix Scene, it does not delete the underlying .cwm file from your computer’s hard disk since the Mix Scene might still be used by other projects.
*
Delete All Scenes. Delete all listed Mix Scenes for the project. Note: this command only removes the project’s reference to the Mix Scenes, it does not delete the underlying .cwm files from your computer’s hard disk since the Mix Scenes might also be used by other projects.
*
Mix Recall Settings. Open the Mix Recall Settings dialog box, which lets you specify the type of data that is applied when you load a Mix Scene or use the Recall Previous Scene and Reset Mix commands. You can choose to restore all the mix data (default) or just a subset of the data. You can also specify if the operation should apply to all tracks and buses, or only to selected tracks or buses. For details, see To configure Mix Recall settings.
*
Save Scene . Save the current mix to the selected Mix Scene. If no Mix Scene is selected, a new Mix Scene (and .cwm file) is created.
*
Save As New Scene . Save the current mix to a new Mix Scene.
*
Recall Previous Scene . Load the previous Mix Scene. This allows you to quickly compare two different mixes. Right click the Recall Previous Scene button to open the Mix Recall Settings dialog box.
Note: A saved project file stores references to all Mix Scenes used by that project, as shown in the Control Bar’s Mix Recall module. The physical Mix Scene files are stored externally in the \MixScenes folder, alongside the project audio folder. The file naming convention is <project name>.Mix n.cwm. Because Mix Scenes that are used by a project are always listed in the Control Bar’s Mix Recall module, you do not need to manually manage any external files.
Bundle files (.cwb files) additionally embed all the physical Mix Scene files (.cwm) within the bundle. This allows you to easily load a bundle file along with its embedded Mix Scenes on a different computer.
Tip: You can auto-save the current Mix Scene when you load another Mix Scene. To do so, enable the Auto-save when switching scenes option in the Mix Recall Settings dialog box. For details, see To configure Mix Recall settings.

Note: Mix Scenes are saved in the \MixScenes folder, alongside the project audio folder. Renaming a Mix Scene only changes the friendly name for the current project, it does not rename the actual .cwm file that is stored on your computer’s hard disk. This is intentional because other projects might reference the same Mix Scene.
The Mix Recall Settings dialog box lets you specify the type of data that is applied when you load a Mix Scene or use the Recall Previous Scene and Reset Mix commands.

Note: Mix Scenes are saved in the \MixScenes folder, alongside the project audio folder. When you delete a Mix Scene via the Mix Recall module, you are only removing the project’s reference to the Mix Scene, but the underlying .cwm file that is stored on your computer’s hard disk is not deleted. This is intentional because other projects might reference the same Mix Scene.
