Pause During Save=<0 or 1> (default=0)
by default, when saving a project file during playback, SONAR saves the files asynchronously while playback continues. While this is not a problem with most project under high CPU load conditions (particularly while running under low latency) may take longer to save than if the transport was not playing.
The new CAKEWALK.INI variable 'PauseDuringSave' Changes the default behavior and pauses playback temporarily for the duration of the files save. This allows the files save to proceed as fast as proceed as fast as possible before playback resumes.
'PauseDuringSave' should be set in the [WINCAKE] section of CAKEWALK.INI. Legal Values are:
0 (default): file is saved asynchronously while playback continues. The save operation may take longer than if the transport was not playing.
1: playing is paused for the duration of the file save operation. This allows the files save to proceed as fast as possible, resuming playback when completed.
