In Cakewalk, all ports are grouped into stereo pairs of channels. In order to make it easier to associate these pairs with the physical channels exposed by the hardware or virtual instrument, the port naming conventions have been improved as follows:
When using user defined device names (select Use Friendly Names to Represent Audio Drivers in Edit > Preferences > Audio - Devices) you can now specify both the left and right channels in the stereo pair by using the vertical bar symbol “|” to delimit the channel names. For example, entering a friendly name of “Guitar|Voice” may show 1: Guitar, 2: Voice, 1+2: Guitar + Voice in the menus.
