    If you do nothing else, pick up their FREE bundle too. They're all good, but the Hofa 4U Meter is absolutely fantastic and I use it all the time. My favotie tool for automating gain and panning. But it does a lot and does it well.

    According to this thread in NI forums, it looks like it is finally at least planned https://www.native-instruments.com/forum/threads/host-transport-control-doesnt-work-with-komplete-kontrol-mk2-due-to-ni-removing-mcu-support.329081/page-25 "Hi all, MCU Support for Komplete Kontrol S-Series MK2 and A-Series (including M32) keyboards is currently in development and is nearing completion.

    IK Multimedia offers Syntronik Bully FREE to newsletter subscribers May 13, 2019 0 IK Multimedia has announced that its newsletter subscribers can get the Syntronik Bully instrument for free for a limited time. Syntronik Bully comes with 100 instruments, comprising 1+ GB of content and over 1,000 samples. Syntronik’s Bully recreates the thunderous bass sounds of the Moog Taurus series. This organ pedal-style synthesizer is a much-treasured chapter in synthesizer history. The first version of the Taurus became an instant classic in the mid-70s with its distinctive oscillator detuning and unique-sounding sawtooth waveforms. The Taurus II, was based on the Moog Rogue and was never as popular despite much added functionality. IK newsletter subscribers or those who join the newsletter can get the Syntronik Bully instrument for free through May 23rd, 2019 (49.99 EUR/USD value). The instrument will be unlocked inside of Syntronik after logging into the Custom Shop and clicking ‘Restore my Sounds’ to activate it. Existing newsletter subscribers must enter their User Area, where a pop-up window will show a red REDEEM button. More information: IK Multimedia https://www.ikmultimedia.com/news/?item_id=7715

    Sequencer One on Amiga for me. I resisted computers for years, sticking to hardware sequencers and tape. So glad I finally made the move.. I tell anyone who will listen about Cakewalk. One of my students has just this week started using Cakewalk to record his Prog Rock band.

    Today marks 5 years since my brother Mike died, just 2 weeks shy of his 58th birthday. Being just 11 months difference in age, we grew up playing music together and he taught me a lot about playing guitar and music in general. I thought I would post his one and only original, recorded song again as a small tribute and memorial. Going Home Crazy

    Voxengo SPAN version 3.,3, adds two important features: LUFS metering and true peak / clipping detection. I did not see any mention of these enhancements having been implemented in the paid version SPAN+, but presumably that'll be announced very soon.

    So it looks like there is a way to get ASIOLink to combine more than one ASIO interface into one: Open one instance of ASIOLink, and set the ASIO driver to be your second ASIO interface, setting the output to Network (just use the local network IP) & enable network. Open a second instance of ASIOLink, set the ASIO driver to be your primary ASIO interface, set the output to ASIOLink's ASIO driver and enable network input using your local network IP. Observations: You'll still need to ensure that both interfaces are word-clock sync'd, either via ADAT / SPDIF, or a standard BNC wordclock cable. There is a slight increase in latency in the interface going over the internal network, hence the reason why I say make second ASIO interface you have over the network. To get your latency back to normal, just disable the network input on the ASIOLink instance when you're not using your second interface. You're limited to 16 audio tracks over the network, so bear this in mind when choosing your primary/secondary interfaces. For me, this means sacrificing 16 of my mLAN inputs. You might find that using the WDM drivers on the 2nd interface gives better latency than using the network (and the setup is much simpler, because you're only using one ASIOLink instance).

    Toontrack has updated EZmix to v2.1.5. Changes in EZmix 2.1.5 New: Selecting/deselecting filters now works a bit differently: Clicking on a row now deselects all other rows in the column while making/keeping the clicked row selected. To deselect or to multi-select, click while holding Ctrl (Windows) / Cmd (Mac). The effect box tooltips are now more specific about certain effects that are being used by a preset. For example, it no longer says just Distortion but instead Tube Nine, Fat Muff, etc. The effect box tooltips now say if the current preset contains more than one of an effect with the same name (internally either the same or different effects). The shape control tooltips now use the more specific names for certain effects (like the effect box tooltips). Fixed: Internal LFOs can now again control the Time parameter in delays. This last worked in version 2.1.1. Several presets in the "Ambient Delays" and "Ambient Reverbs" packs are affected, as well as one preset in "Indie Guitars" ("Modulated Pitched Delay"). Increasing the Time parameter in reverse delays (if a shape control is bound to such a parameter) should no longer cause any click/pop sounds. Opening Pro Tools projects containing EZmix would sometimes crash (since version 2.1.4). The selected preset/favorite was not shown as modified (with an asterisk) if the input or output level had been changed by less than 0.4 dB. 0.1 dB is enough now. In shape control tooltips, several effects with the same name (but internally being different effects) could be listed multiple times, for example "Amplifier Tone, Amplifier" – now they are merged. Sorting by Instrument, Type, Genre or Producer was quite slow and has been optimized. Changes in EZmix 2.1.4 New: Added support for a few new effects to be used in future EZmix packs. Fixed: Fixed an issue with click sounds in reverse delay. Fixed that it said "Ezmix" (with lowercase Z) in the application menu in the Mac standalone.

    In this view we see 3 sections. To the left are the tracks. In the middle is the buses that are user created to anything you want. To the far right is the hardware outs. You can route your tracks to any bus at will. Here is the way tracks are routed to a bus. If you see the drop down just above the green test you will notice it says master. The tracks are routed to the master bus. The master bus in turn is routed to your hardware outs. This is the normal way for most users to set up a simple bus structure. I completely agree with Chuck. We are here to answer questions. If the above is unclear it is not your fault but mine.

    I am but ... what I find is that once someone becomes a real Daw user, they lock in very fast. And then there's the "Industry Standard". Informed new users can get the most benefit from this Killa Daw!!!

    Here´s an article about the HW version: https://www.soundonsound.com/reviews/spl-vitalizer-mk2-t If the emulation is precise I guess the same concepts apply to the plugin. And I remember back in the 90's that the Vitalizer was a direct competitor for the Aphex Aural Exciter.

    I sure as hell am, mostly right here in this forum. You would be amazed at the number of posts by people who make it all the way through the process of discovering that the old Cakewalk company's forum is locked, registering an account with BandLab, navigating through the popups and dialogs telling about CbB, only to get to this forum and post about how they're running Sonar X1 or whatever and having some technical issue. Or they come in and post asking in earnestness whether they should even try CbB. They are not sure whether their bundled plug-ins will still be available, etc. And, once again, we reassure them that CbB installs right alongside, works great, very similar except more features and faster and more stable, and you get to keep your existing bundled plug-ins and installation of Sonar. No risk. I've asked, no, begged, for a sticky on this topic, so far to no avail. I just hate to see all these people missing out on something that's such an improvement.

    Hey guys... 1. Both default Mercury & Tungsten themes have the correct image. 2. Any modified images like the one in question were done by the theme's author and have nothing to do with Theme Editor or BandlLab. 3. It's easy to revert an image back to it's original state by right-clicking and selecting "Remove". and 4. Yes you can resize an image! But not through "Import". Steps to resize an image: 1. Set up a photo editing program in Theme Editor's Setup Wizard. 2. Double click an image. A window will open in TE and the image will automatically open in the photo editor. 3. Change the image size and save it. 4. In Theme Editor, click OK. You can click "Refresh" 1st to see the changes. Your image is now the new size. Check image "Properties" window in the lower right hand corner of TE to verify. Resized images won't be distorted in Cakewalk but there are limitations. Some are constrained to a certain area and won't display beyond those dimensions. Some will overlap another image when made bigger. Others will push neighboring images over to allow the bigger size.

    Hey, ask all the questions you want right here. There's no shame in the quest for knowledge. I'll try to break this down a bit, - Audio and Midi tracks are typically sent to the Master Bus (or a Drum, Guitar, Exc Bus) - The Master Bus is then sent to the Hardware Bus (that's your soundcard). - To control Speaker volume, Use the dial on your Soundcard interface (if you have one). - The Touch is defaulted to use the Master Bus but as Mark mentioned above, you can use the MCU preset menu to make changes.

    I also had an Amiga, running Bars and Pipes, Music Mouse, Doctor T's KCS, and "M". Those were fun days! Creativity at it's best. Today, I have BandLab Cakewalk( since Pro 9 also) and Studio One with more equipment and experience! Different times, different software, different music! All in a life!

    You've not mentioned anything about your setup, so assuming you're PC is a half decent spec... I find JBridge works far better than BitBridge for most 32 bit plugins, it's only It's only €14.99, and has far more options for tweaking: https://jstuff.wordpress.com/jbridge/ Once you've installed it, the easiest way to use it is to enable the "Use JBridge Wrapper" option within the plugin properties within Cakewalk.

    Thank you. Im guessing it probably a total of 5 hours over a week. I do a few split shifts at work and would work on the tracks in between shifts. I did some at night when I was home too. Could have been longer, I have a 40 min drive home so I’d listen to it on my way to and from work. Then work on what I wanted to change or add between shifts. Hard part is when my battery on the phone dies mid edit. Fortunately I never loose my progress, just sucks to have to wait for the phone to charge again. Thank you for your comment.

    Thanks for listening. Actually, the bass guitar is the only electric. The rhythm and lead were both done on acoustic.

    Most of the time I only visit the "Deals" section of the Coffee House, so I am really late to have read this thread! Dave, although I am surely not a member of the "hardcore Cakewalk gang" (even if I am not too far from the 60) I like to wish you all the best and hope to read great comments of you furthermore! Marc

    You will have to wait for 1-2 weeks to get your license. I guess Steinberg didn't do a very good job handling this. I guess that's an opportunity for those who decided it was an impulse purchase and get a refund. Who'd thought it would take that long for a digital purchase. Piss poor planning Steinberg.

    This is probably the most underrated Plugin producer as far as I'm concerned. Their plugins are top notch...

    Yep, I understand it's not usually a mute button and nothing like it, which is what triggered my curiosity. I've just realized one thing that may possibly be connected, that is any themes I'm seeing that in were probably made when Cakewalk was Sonar, I'm thinking then maybe it was an error from long ago which was fixed but would still be present in themes made during that time and obviously can't be changed in those themes now due to the size difference. 😃

    It's ridiculous how much one can accomplish on a device that fits in the palm of your hand. I would never have guessed that you sing into an earbud mic. It sounds better than some studio recordings I have heard. Great job!
