    This is a nice video.

    Please submit Cakewalk exact steps how to reproduce an issue. Also include full system specifications and a showcase project of your problem. You could also use screen2gif or similar screen capture program to show developers exact steps how to produce the issue. Cakewalk fixes bugs actively - just look at the list of fixes on each release. You can participate by submitting problem reports. Ranting on user forum does not help much.

    Have to agree with this. I use a lot of Melda plug-ins but have to rely on their video tutorials when it comes to gaining a deeper understanding of what is available 'under the hood' A newbie clicking the 'Edit' button on the GUI might need to have medic standing by...😮

    Keep in mind, users who stay current receive an update installer that only works on the previous production install. The update installer is not a full version,

    This doesn't sound like a bug as much as probably a system specific issue. Can you list out your full specs ? Could be a driver for a device freezing up.

    Just an update for anyone looking at this old thread: I gave up on the Arturia Controller. With the limited way I was able to set it up it didn't feel like I was speeding up my workflow at all. Did not feel intuitive or like I was going to get the hang of it eventually. Also the controller doesn't have a on/off switch which is pretty disappointing, considering it has a bunch of lights going off when its idle. So the alternative is plugging and unplugging from the usb cable which is cumbersome and I'm sure not good over time. However I must say, the Arturia sound catalog is amazing. I was able to re-sell the controller and keep the synths (Analog Lab 4). I purchased a Nektak Impact GX61 that seamlessly integrates with Cakewalk, and a NanoKontrol 2 for the physical faders and knobs. Nice little piece of equipment that works with Cakewalk as well.

    The paid for EQ's from Melda are even more awesome. A fair few of them can capture EQ from hardware devices, so you can emulate it in your plugin. You can also export it as a IR.

    This is an awesome feature. Basically it's a sidechain input where you can apply eq. I do this with my hardware eq. The Rupert Neve Shelford Channel has this feature built in. You can high-pass what the compressor sees. This helps you avoid over-compression on the low end or triggering the vocal compressor with the bass player who's booming. Another way to use the Melda EQ before the the compressor is if you want to use the compressor as an old school de-esser, you can just pass the S sounds heavily magnified. When your compressor is on a vocal track without much cymbal bleed it will work as a solid old-school de-esser. Having the EQ right there in the plugin just makes it easier to do this. Now practically, once you're done tracking, I don't see much advantage to this technique over using purpose built tools. But live, there's no other way. 🙂 And I do successfully do it for folks performing live. Mic in to the RME and sent out on 2 channels. One has the EQ for de-essing or passing the bass so it only triggers on the vocal itself -- the other for compressing and sending to the mains. With a band it can be hard to get the vocalist to be loud enough to not have the bass trigger the compression all the time. Idk. My experience. For a zero latency de-esser, there's nothing like and eq and compressor. The only drag is the hardware is heavy. I too am a heavy Melda user. Probably my most common plugin is MAutoAlign b/c I use so many instances of it. But I also use Spectral Dynamics a lot. Now, to be honest, doubling back to the old multiband compressors that shipped with Cakewalk a zillion years ago you can get almost the same sound by setting the compressor to always-on at a low ratio. The technique is what Spectral Dynamics enforces as much as anything. I mean, yeah, it's better than a 6 band compressor, but idk how much better. A little. The idea is the same. If you don't own Spectral Dynamics, try the LP MB (do they give that away??) with a really low ratio as always on. As another thought, it's awesome to perform with the fx in place. That way, you can control your S's as the performer, hearing the de-esser at work. You can sing into the compressor and work it. I think that's the coolest. I mean, it's great to apply fx after the fact that the performer didn't hear during the performance. That can help make a great tape. But if the performer can hear the impact during the performance, it can change the performance, enhancing it.

    all my favourite singers can't sing The mix shows that you don't like the sound of your own voice - up the vocal volume - I can barely hear it. Lyrics and tune are great.

    Did you try the free Halion Sonic 3 trial yet? Fully functional for 30 days. Included with the Halion 6 trial. https://www.steinberg.net/en/products/steinberg_trial_versions/halion.html

    The PRV is a MIDI editor and cannot directly affect audio data. Cakewalk does not have a sampler but there are several free plug-ins that will do the job. In this case, Sitala looks like a good fit. Another frequently mentioned free sampler is TX16Wx.

    See that little emoticon at the end of my sentence? That means it was a joke. Get it? You posted about the wrong forums being used and I said your post was in the wrong forum. That's funny.

    I frequently see Nexus recommended for dance music style, and it's regarded as a "ROMpler", so it's good for the non-programmer. https://refx.com/nexus/ It start at $249.99 (which puts it just under your $250 limit), and many factory expansions are available. As far as the u-he synths go, they are probably some of the best, especially if you are into tweaking and programming. But synths like Diva are intended to model the sound of vintage analog synths. Excellent sound quality, but you would probably need to tweak it to get your sounds. Zebra is a programmer's dream synth with endless possibilities for designing "way out there" sounds. Instead, you could try their Hive synth which is more oriented to modern music. $149 and a demo is available. Scroll down the page and click on the "Demo tracks" link to hear some demo tracks made with Hive 2: https://u-he.com/products/hive/

    Bjorn, stop it! We never say "we suck," We say, "I do my thang, my way...damn to the detractors. I shall not be one, especially unto myself (Which you did say, but not until after you said you suck.) I suggest to leave the suck part out, you will meet more folks just like you. Great simple tune, with meaning.

    So there is no misunderstanding here... I am not that talented. I have took backing tracks and rebuilt them and added my own vocal.

    Cool song gentlemen. Having just listened to this the first time the new drums have been added and they sound good to me. Love the lyrics and the vocals are very well done; however, my ancient old ears do find them just a tad too bright. That observation might be due to the fact that as I have accumulated years, everything on the low end has become more muted and the high end has become more dominant. True to my nature, I believe that is just the opposite as to what is supposed to happen. The over performance and mix sound good to me and I think that you have done yourself proud.

    There are a few things about the AUD.INI. None of which appear to big performance issues but each machine is different. The project and picture cache are on the system drive. Given the machine has multiple drives, it may be better to put these elsewhere. This may already be done with directory junctions. Can't tell from AUD.INI entries. If possible put the picture cache on a non-system drive that does not contain project audio. I use a regular HD for my project audio and needed a little larger DiskBufSize. I double the default to 512. UseMMCSS is set to 0. The default is 1 and the help advises to leave it at 1. Sometimes the help is not accurate but it may be worth testing the default value. FileBitDepth is set to 16. This is not a performance issue but most would recommend projects record bit depth of at least 24. ExtraPluginBufs is set to 0. With 32GB of RAM it can't hurt to give a little extra memory to plug-ins. I changed this to 32. DropoutMsec is set to 250. I increased this on my PC to 750. With the exception of UseMMCSS and FileBitDepth, I cannot recommend my values for any machine but my own. These just stand out as differences from my config.

    CbB will use all the CPUs made available by the OS. One the thing I noticed about the Xeon E5420 is its slow clock speed. This could be an issue. That said, WRT to CbB settings, in preferences: EnableSetThreadIdealProcessor should be True ThreadSchedulingModel should be set to 2 You may try tweaking MixThreadCount. By default, it is set to 0 which makes all cores available to CbB. Sometimes, it is preferable to reserve 1 or 2 for the OS and other tasks.
