Plug-in automation envelopes were previously being decimated at a uniform 50 msec interval. The automation rendering process has been redesigned to render at a much higher resolution (default = 5 msec) and also make automation sample accurate for VST3 plug-ins. For VST2, or VST3 plug-ins that do not support sample accurate automation, the rendering will be buffer accurate.These improvements allow for much tighter sync when automating plug-in parameters synced to rhythm even at higher latencies. The higher resolution rendering also makes automating filter sweeps audibly smoother and without aliasing artifacts. The decimation interval can be changed via the audio configuration property AutomationDecimationMsec (2-30) in Edit > Preferences > Audio - Configuration File.Writing automation for plug-in parameters automated via MIDI remote control is more accurate, and curves are smoothly represented.
Note: This feature is experimental, so please report back if you notice any improvements or problems when using it.Cakewalk 2021.04 introduces a new experimental Cakewalk.ini variable that enables improved high DPI rendering on Windows 10 build 1809 (October 2018) and above.When enabled, the rendering quality of text and other GDI-based primitives automatically improve when the window is displayed on a high-DPI monitor. All Cakewalk UI is potentially affected, including menus and dialogs, but plug-in windows are created without high DPI rendering improvements to avoid UI issues.To enable Windows 10 DPI awareness, add the following variable in Cakewalk.ini (Edit > Preferences > File - Initialization File):To disable again, set the variable to EnableWin10DPIAwareness=0.
