    To be serious for a moment, if you can, get to the music first thing after you wake up in the morning. I believe the music is in there but a lot of things can cover it up during the day. And don't turn the computer on right away, just your instrument. I know not everyone can do that but find your best, least distracted time. I always come away feeling positive and that is important.

    The reason I'm posting all of this is how well manufacturers respond with faulty hardware. Warranty is a priority when I buy but so is RMA service. If service in unsatisfactory I broadcast it on forums, Facebook, Newegg, Amazon, pretty much leave no stone unturned. I don't want to go through another set of hoops for this drive. I've read similar responses on the Intel forum.

    If you want to use Jamstix, you have to read the manual. Your not going to get anything like it's full potential out of it unless you read that manual. Read it, play around with JS, read the manual some more, play with JS some more, and keep repeating!! Be aware the it has Save Points feature. Use it excessively!! [edit] Let me state I have nothing against the videos. Watch them after you read the manual. Read the manual after you watch the videos!! : )

    Yeah! I said it. I even got a bluescreen because of the failure. When booting it was not to find, and even in BIOS is was missing. Swapping the SATA cables saved it tho. So try that before tossing away HDDs/SSDs…

    Yep, like some gold plated "Monster" cables! I think these would get the job done: Cable Matters 3-Pack 90 Degree Right Angle SATA III 6.0 Gbps SATA Cable (SATA 3 Cable) Black - 18 Inches $7.99 https://www.amazon.com/Cable-Matters-3-Pack-Degree-Right/dp/B018Y2LEBE

    I loved hardware synths and ROMplers! I could control them with my Korg N5, MS2000 or MIDI keyboard and save all of my CPU's processing power for real-time effects. That said, the next DAW I create will be as beefy as I can make it so I can add more software synths.

    Use the Loop Construction View or the Groove Clip section in the Clip Properties tab in the inspector to adjust the number of beats in the clip.

    Jude, I use a style call JamStix Classic. You can find an explanation in the manual at 18.2.2 It's under Special Styles. If you need help finding it, let me know. When I have a new song, I will use this to make a general beat. It was hard for me to put my head around this very simple UI, but it has unbelievable potential! Seriously. For the kick, you will see the green dots on the first and third place, which represent beats. For the snare green dots on the two and four. Both on the top row. Start up transport in CbB and just listen. Very simple. Adjust tempo of CbB to what you need. Now as it's playing, on the kick add a dot right under that first dot. See what you got now!? Add a beat under the second beat on the snare now. See what starts to develop? : ) Adjust the slider to the right of the beat you want to limit the amount you want it played. Now drop down and start playing with the Hi Hat style. See? Now adjust the Open setting. Sweet! OK, now hopefully you got something that you can work with, but it'smay not just be quite right. Drop down to the bar editor and select the first Bar. Select the second drum hit, and adjust it's timing to the left. Hear that? That's where the "feel" for me comes in. I can adjust this to be just like I like it. I can make it push, or lay back. But there's more!! Now you got several Bars fleshed out just like you want it, you feeling the grove. Now save these bars as a new style!! Then you can use this style to create the song your working on!! It will generate an INtro, a Verse, Pre Chorus, Chorus, Bridge.... ect!! But there's more!! Now you got your song set as a style, and you have generated the general format of the song, now you can further adjust the feel, power, repetitions, and... you get the idea. But, yes there is more!! Now that you got your song going, try different drummers and it changes things up, but stays on the style you want. Yes there is much more. I am only touching the tip of the iceberg here. When you factor in that you can do what I just explained for the Accents and Fills, it's really unbelievable.

    Anyone ever come across these folks before? Looks and sounds interesting -- physically modeled strings and their own touch controller (check out the Touché controller they offer). They are not on sale, or anything, but it looks like they have some intriguing products: https://www.expressivee.com/arche-collection

    The MIDI card won't give MCU emulation, but it looks like it does something similar. I suspect you'll have to go down the AzController route for this one. The manual has some info on it (a bit vague though): https://c3.zzounds.com/media/D8B3.0_OM-6bcdb34a9f0362313e1d9f6ab0304b6d.pdf It seems to be mainly aimed at MTC / transport control, but it does mention faders.

    I have studio one and the main reason I don't use it is because of the ugliness of the UI. I like the browser with the ability to show a snapshot of the UI of the various plug-ins, but other than that I really don't like looking at it at all. Amongst the ugliest of all the alternatives IMO.

    If thats the case then after im done with the newest project I will give it a try. Where do I upgrade to the newest version. On the bandlabs website?

    That's because there was no ProChannel in 8.5.3. The easiest way to get a ProChannel enabled project, is to start a new blank project in CwB, then drag the 8.5.3 project on to the track area:

    Or, combine the last two suggestions! Doom-metal covers of Beach Boys songs off the Pet Sounds album using a baritone sax, an according and a bass harmonica with beats on 1 and 3!!! 👍🤩 (Not sure if adding a vuvuzela will help though...😆)

    I'm not sure if this still works or not but I do seem to remember someone suggesting to - Try logging out and then back in again of the Bandlab Assistant. ' I tried this and it worked, thanks a lot, I would recommend it!

    Hey Feral-- I'd be interested in how you came to this conclusion: "...It was not used by the majority of the music professionals..." If you mean it didn't have the same market penetration as say, Pro-Tools, then that could be said about the majority of software DAWs out there. I'm not trying to be contrary--so I'll clarify, because sometimes things can get misunderstood in posts. I have found quite a lot of music professionals use(d) Sonar. I would meet and hear from music professionals at conventions, watch online music industry seminars, and speak to people in the biz, and although there was a spattering of many different DAWs out there, I would hear of Sonar just as much as any of the others. Now, I did hear of a few music pros that left Sonar after Gibson bailed, but I have no idea whether they came back after Bandlab bought them. For some, they just didn't want to deal with the uncertainty. To be honest, I was about to switch just before Bandlab made the announcement. It would be interesting to know if Cakewalk is picking up more market share now that Bandlab bought it, but whether Bandlab is willing to share that information outside their organization is a completely different question. I would think that making the software free had to have some positive effects on market penetration. Whether those additional downloads are music pros--I don't think anyone but Bandlab knows, and then they might not even have ways of telling whether someone with their software is a 12 year old who wants to be a DJ someday, or a successful music pro. Finally, if you look at who is posting in this forum and the FB group, you've got the diehard lifelong regulars, and the noobs that just got the software because it's free, and just about everyone in between. Being one of those diehards, I just hope Cakewalk stays around for a very long time to come, and does become a market standard!

    Ah yeah it might be a simpler solution if the target track which needs no reverb tails is only one.
  44. 1 point
    Yeah there is really no other way to do this other than having the reverb on an independent bus and automating the send. Or just put a reverb inline on that tracks effects bin which might be a simpler solution.
  45. 1 point
    A few things that come to mind and to look at: Is the send pre or post fader You can also automate the bus that the reverb is on with a volume envelope I remember a function in Sonar (cakewalk), that you can enable to 'play effect tails' in the preference menu, make sure this is disengaged Let me know if any of those work, CJ

    If you need a silent break, need volume automation on the reverb bus. (also need volume automation of original clips but don't need automation of SENDs.)
