    Does the track have the MIDI icon? Or the instrument tack icon? Sorry I'm at work and cant post screenshot, but you know what I mean.

    Have to chime in or I will forget to download! I didn't realize these existed until around Christmas, but these guys keep pumping out some of the most usuable freebies that exist. Simple, functional, and relatively small footprints.

    Sounds like they are off to a good start. The social aspect and getting others involved is the biggest win if the owners can achieve that. Sadly, younger people tend to think of "social" as "online media" rather than "interacting with a person face-to-face," so the 45+ doesn't surprise me too much. Playing instruments seems to also be slipping away, so hopefully they will be able to chip away at both of those issues. The biggest hurdle is getting folks involved in what is going on, so the "everyone I've met has been kind" is a huge plus. Kids will tend to be shy but want to participate, so it takes people doing things with them to get them involved (karaoke tends to be simpler for them). Even with open mic nights here, a lot of the fun was people wanting to sing certain songs and the players doing the best ad-hoc renditions they could. [Aside since I mentioned karaoke] Karoke bars are actually a business model in China, and they are laid out so that each group gets an isolated room to eat/drink with its own system. I have never seen anything like that in the US yet, but is an idea for folks who really want to participate but really get stage fright too. There is also the subset of people who do not have gear at home, so the only time they can participate is in a place that allows them to touch gear (you see them in GC and the like, but GC isn't overly social for this). If they keep focusing on social and participation in a laid-back environment, word of mouth should kick in pretty nicely for them going forward. Things that fell apart around this area were when "laid-back" disappeared... it is amazing how people back out of social events when "not fun" enters the picture (yet this seems to surprise those who made it not fun in the first place for some reason).

    Awesome story. We have some open mics around here. I do half my recording in bars but I've never recorded an open Mic. Interesting thought. This is a straight up warehouse. I'm thinking the practice rooms are enclosed for year round climate control as much as sound-proofing. Virginia gets both hot and cold. The whole thing is 1/16th or less of the whole warehouse. They sell sodas but aim for beer. So far, everyone I've seen there is over 45. They have a slack channel for subscribers only. You can't store gear there and i haven't seen the bathroom. None of that matters to me. It is a nice gathering place where religion and politics won't dirty the water. I was thinking that it'd be a fun space to reamp tracks super loud... Maybe on a Saturday morning before anyone cares. There is a nearby bay door that could provide a stage for the parking lot on weekends. Industrial park location means loud is no problem. The owners are enterprising and adventurous. Everyone I've met has been kind. I'm signing up at some level. I'll bet everyone who goes also owns a home, but should be a nice crowd to be a member of.

    Changing the buffer size will force a change in AUD.INI, so although it isn't quite the same as deleting it (which would force Cakewalk to create a new one), it was obviously enough in your case. As you say though, having a mismatch between 44.1K & 48K would have caused issues too. Some drivers don't always change their sample rate / buffer size when Cakewalk tells them to, so it's best click the ASIO Panel button and check there too. I'm glad it's all sorted now

    SOLVED ! I found the answer here: https://www.cakewalk.com/Documentation?product=SONAR X3&language=3&help=Troubleshooting.26.html For some reasons, the sampling rate had been changed (I don't remember having done that). TTS-1 only supports 44.1 kHz, 48 kHz, and 96 kHz. I have set it back to 48 kHz and now it is working again!

    Its the same thing being referred to. The issue was certain plugins like the IK multimedia plugins and some synths like Addictive drums apparently are not designed to be multiprocessing compliant so they exhibited problems. As a result we had to disable some changes until further notice.

    When a vector based font is rendered into a bitmap in a program like Photoshop, it normally uses anti-aliasing to make the contours smooth. Thus when the text blends with the background there’s more or less “smear” around it. Unless not only all the font attributes (size, weight, slant, spacing etc.) are identical with the Cakewalk original, but also text and background colours and perhaps most importantly rendering algorithm, there will be differences. In Photoshop CS6 (which is what I use) there are five different text rendering options which can be found at the bottom of the Font panel: None, Sharp, Crisp, Strong and Smooth. I think that newer Photoshop releases have a couple more. Depending on font attributes, the selected algorithm may have a huge impact on the rendered result. With all these different parameters I would say that it’s practically impossible to create text in a theme that matches Mercury and/or Tungsten perfectly. Unless, of course, BandLab would publish a theme font manual. But I can't really see that happen in the foreseeable future...

    FYI - I found out the hard way that the Fernandes Sustainer is actually a licensed version of only one of the models created by Sustainiac. Eventually, I'll get a different clip-on model they have so I don't have to modify any of my customs, plus I can use one on multiple guitars when I want that effect! 👍

    What did you think of the place Geoff? The "sound-proof" on the rehearsal pods is a bit hard to believe. I am so remote that the closest thing that used to be around here were open mic nights where a band set up their gear and let anyone who wanted to use it. The guy who ran those got sick about 10 years ago, and another took his place for a while he recovered. Unfortunately when he recovered the closest place he ran them in shut down, so I haven't seen anything remotely similar in years (and nothing to the level of what the OP is promoting). Pat Martino actually stopped by and gifted him a guitar as he was recovering, which was an incredibly nice gesture.

    Wait... There's a solved Rubik's Cube there? Ok, that might make up for the accordion... I used to be able to solve a cube in (according to the Guiness Book of World Records attempt I did) an average of 39 seconds over five scrambled cubes (not even close to the fastest at the event though... 😕). I even used to do alternate solutions like the one below: Front side and back. You can't spin a solved cube to get these, you actually need to solve the cube this way! 😀

    Painted fonts are hard to get spacing and letter width "exact" with app fonts of same face & point size. For fun, type a letter in Photoshop. Then keep typing that same letter several times. The 1st 3 or 4 letters will be displayed slightly different. If you keep typing the letter it will repeat those variations. If you grab a screen shot of some text item in CbB/Sonar and zoom in you'll see multi colored pixels, not so with painted text.

    If you bounce to clips - this should merge and note and controller data from different clips. There are a few CAL routines that remove duplicate data in the event you have exact note conditions at the same time stamp. You can also look at the " event viewer " to see if you have duplicate notes at the same time stamp. I think in the Piano roll -you would have to grab the note and pull it up or down to see for sure - hold shift while you do it to keep the time locked, it would be a good visual tool if over lapped or covered notes would light up a different way. Maybe a bright red splash color.

    Sorry to be such an ass but seeing CbB is free now he’s probably over at Avid trying to get the forum there to pony up for a copy of Pro Tools for him.

    I guess there's two types of counterfeit products: 1. Cheap imitations, where they look the same on the outside but the components inside are completely different; and 2. The company actually manufactures the real goods on behalf of the original manufacturer, but decides to illegally sell re-badged or unofficial versions of the product without the original manufacturer's knowledge. What you're actually getting is the real product, but the original manufacturer doesn't get any money from the sale. Both are bad of course as they both damage the original manufacturer. But the worst part is there's no way of telling the difference until you actually get it - and even then you'd need a real one to compare it to. That's why I always buy branded music gear from a respected music retailer.

    Play only works with iLok licensed libraries. Installing it without owning something from EastWest will give you nothing, I don't think there are any demo/limited/trial libraries even. So yes it requires iLok software be installed.

    Yes it overwrites/uninstalls Play 5 and Play 6 is 64 bit only. So if you need the 32 bit version of Play for any reason don't upgrade!

    This is a beautiful instrument, both the real and virtual ones. And a great price! I had to wait a couple of years for this price. I picked up the 3-piano bundle (Italian, German, American) at a great price years ago, but had to wait for the Ravenscroft. If you like good sampled pianos, get this one! Note that it runs in the free UVI Workstation, so the library uses UVI's excellent compression!

    I phoned Sweetwater, where I bought ST4, and the tech showed me how to get them installed. I'm glad that I did call because there were a few system options that had to be changed. I would never have found them on my own. He then did a couple of installs while I watched him doing it and then had me do a few while he watched, just to make sure I had the gist of it. He even opened up Cakewalk to make sure that everything was showing up properly. (they did/do) I am really throwing flowers to Zach and Tyler over at Sweetwater... without them I would still not have my software up and running. Thanks to everyone here who responded to my question. Very much appreciated!!!

    I got it free with a purchase in Nov or Dec and glad I did. I waited pretty long up till then. I'm glad every one gets it now but this seems like a really screwball strategy.
