    I've said it before and I'll say it again. There needs to be a Wikia with all these helpful Cakewalk GIFs.

    Here is a wav that I made with EZ Bass, EZ Drummer, EZ Keys. This is waht EZB can do.

    I was working with the Drum and Keyboard tab last night. In combination with the Audio Tracker and the Grooves that come with EZB, I am starting to piece together some really good sounding bass lines with lots of variety and flash!! I have found with the keyboard midi dragged into EZB you can use the left hand or right hand. Each one gives different results. Now also add the midi drum to EZB and you have three choices that can cover almost the whole song. Now look for grooves based on those generated clips and you can slice and place little fills all over the place. Yep, they hit this out the park!!

    I decided to get this but forgot all about it because of EZBass. On Saturday, I went, "oh no, I missed it again. " But they extended the deal until today. I've spent a few hours with the ADSR sample manager checking it out. For me it is well worth the money. Lots of great world percussion, for one thing. Many, many instruments I don't have, and I have a lot. Of course the one-shots don't compete with multi-sampled instruments, but they still are very usable. I could see myself using one of the loops or redoing something similar with a drum replacement instrument. Having spent a lot of time in Brazil, I think the samba school Carnival stuff is pretty great. It has a real energy to it that you can only find in the Cinesamples Brazil library. There are also "instruments," samples that you can stretch on your keyboard with a sampler. Some pretty unusual stuff. I'm definitely going to take a few minutes to throw some of these together. It will be interesting to have a conch shell instrument and maybe layer it with something else.in Falcon. I discovered that I already had some of it, because I had their Ethnic Flavours library, which I got free with another purchase. They didn't bother to mention that. The only thing is that it will take quite awhile for me to sort it out into usable folders, that go with the filing system I've been building for all my world samples. It's really a mess, because they just through all these separate libraries together and called it a "world pack." It would be nice if they just took a few hours put it together into a sensible package rather than have all their customers have to drive themselves nuts doing it one by one. If you don't organize these samples, they're not really worth anything. This is an Ikea library, only it doesn't come with any instructions. 🤬 Here you go, everybody! Have fun figuring it out! But I don't want to complain. It is a really amazing deal, even by typical Zero-G sales pricing standards.

    The aminated gifs are created using ScreenToGif, LICECap or similar tool. Even though they are fairly small, I do not upload animated gifs to this site. Instead, I use imgur.com and paste the BBCode they provide to embed images/videos

    I bought this some time ago for $20, but it was a waste of money. The samples are ok, but the VST plugins are horrible. They are *very* memory intensive, and not multi-timbral. So if you score a 12-piece orchestra, you have to load 12 instances and might already run out of memory. The mod wheel should do dynamics (according to the specs!), but it just doesn't do anything. It regularly crashes my DAW (both Samplitude and Cubase, haven't tried it in Cakewalk yet). Sonivox is aware of the problems, but they don't care about it. They just keep selling this stuff for low prices year after year, with the same bugs.

    So the way the template is routed, all the tracks for each group (Woods, Brass, Keys, Perc, Strings) route to a AUX patch point. These patch points feed into the Stem aux tracks which then feed into the Full Mix patch point. The full mix patch point feeds into the Master bus (so you can hear it). The Stem tracks can be armed for recording (and/or saved/exported) so that you can save a version of the stem without any effects. The print tracks are the same as the stem tracks, but with whatever effects you add on the stem tracks. So if you need to provide clean stems, with no effects, you can record the stem tracks. If you need to provide stems with effects, put the effects on the stem tracks and record the print tracks. It's kind of a waterfall, each level can be recorded and/or output but that won't include any effects added on that level. Splitting the stems and the print levels means you have an extra shelf you can add effects to. Just don't add effects or make any volume changes to the print tracks since it won't get passed. One thing this template doesn't have is any reverb track routing. It's not hard to add that but it's not there. Sections also aren't broken down into high/mid/low groups either. Which might be something you'd want (so you could do effects on all the low strings for example and different effects on the high strings). I really wish there was an easier way to select a track and then connect the synth that goes with it. You can go the other way in the Synth Rack, but you can't connect a synth from the track.

    Homographs are words of like spelling, but with more than one meaning. A homograph that is also pronounced differently is a heteronym. You think English is easy??? 1) The bandage was wound around the wound. 2) The farm was used to produce produce. 3) The dump was so full that it had to refuse more refuse. 4) We must polish the Polish furniture. 5) He could lead if he would get the lead out. 6) The soldier decided to desert his dessert in the desert. 7) Since there is no time like the present, he thought it was time to present the present. 8) A bass was painted on the head of the bass drum. 9) When shot at, the dove dove into the bushes. 10) I did not object to the object. 11) The insurance was invalid for the invalid. 12) There was a row among the oarsmen about how to row. 13) They were too close to the door to close it. 14) The buck does funny things when the does are present. 15) A seamstress and a sewer fell down into a sewer line. 16) To help with planting, the farmer taught his sow to sow. 17) The wind was too strong to wind the sail. 18) Upon seeing the tear in the painting I shed a tear. 19) I had to subject the subject to a series of tests. 20) How can I intimate this to my most intimate friend? Let's face it, English is a crazy language. There is no egg in eggplant, nor ham in hamburger; neither apple nor pine in pineapple. English muffins weren't invented in England or French fries in France. Sweetmeats are candies while sweetbreads, which aren't sweet, are meat. We take English for granted but, if we explore its paradoxes, we find that quicksand can work slowly, boxing rings are square and a guinea pig is neither from Guinea nor is it a pig. And why is it that writers write, but fingers don't fing, grocers don't groce and hammers don't ham? If the plural of tooth is teeth, why isn't the plural of booth, beeth? One goose, two geese. So one moose, two meese? One index, two indices? And, if the plural of mouse is mice, and that of louse is lice, why isn’t the plural of house, hice, and of spouse, spice? Doesn't it seem crazy that you can make amends but not one amend? If you have a bunch of odds and ends and get rid of all but one of them, what do you call it? If teachers taught, why don't preachers praught? If a vegetarian eats vegetables, what does a humanitarian eat? Sometimes I think all the English speakers should be committed to an asylum for the verbally insane. In what language do people recite at a play and play at a recital? Ship by truck and send cargo by ship? Have noses that run and feet that smell? How can a slim chance and a fat chance be the same, while a wise man and a wise guy are opposites? You have to marvel at the unique lunacy of a language in which your house can burn up as it burns down, in which you fill in a form by filling it out and in which, an alarm goes off by going on. English was invented by people, not computers, and it reflects the creativity of the human race, which, of course, is not a race at all. That is why, when the stars are out, they are visible, but when the lights are out, they are invisible. PS. Why doesn't 'Buick' rhyme with 'quick'? --------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- You lovers of the English language might enjoy this. There is a two-letter word that perhaps has more meanings than any other two-letter word, and that is "UP." It's easy to understand UP, meaning toward the sky or at the top of the list, but when we awaken in the morning, why do we wake UP? At a meeting, why does a topic come UP? Why do we speak UP, why are the officers UP for election and why is it UP to the secretary to write UP a report? We call UP our friends, we use it to brighten UP a room, polish UP the silver; we warm UP the leftovers and clean UP the kitchen. We lock UP the house and some guys fix UP the old car. At other times the little word has real special meaning. People stir UP trouble, line UP for tickets, work UP an appetite, and think UP excuses. To be dressed is one thing, but to be dressed UP is special. A drain must be opened UP because it is stopped UP. We open UP a store in the morning, but we close it UP at night. We seem to be mixed UP about UP! To be knowledgeable about the proper uses of UP, look the word UP in the dictionary. In a desk-sized dictionary, it takes UP almost 1/4th of the page and can add UP to about thirty definitions. If you are UP to it, you might try building UP a list of the many ways UP is used. It will take UP a lot of your time but, if you don't give UP, you may wind UP with a hundred or more. When it threatens to rain, we say it is clouding UP. When the sun comes out we say it is clearing UP. When it rains, it wets the earth and often messes things UP. When it doesn't rain for awhile, things dry UP. One could go on and on, but I'll wrap it UP, for now my time is UP, so... it is time to shut UP! Now it's UP to you what you do with this post.

    First of all, to everyone at Bandlab that was working on this - A tip of the hat, what amazing job indeed. When I first requested this back in January, I didnt think it will happen this year - seeing that the pandemic limits certain area's and departments every where around the world. Secondly: Can I just request another feature to this? I've explained most right here on the other side of the link 👉 Would it be possible to get rid of the envelope with this? Reason for this is . . . When going in to do surgical work it is highly crucial that the overall levels stay exactly the same and intact without the slightest difference in volume. I have done some playing around with this, going deep with the wave and instantly caused the envelopes coming into the nodes to slightly slope down. That is bad, being so used to doing things quick. So by removing the envelope lane to increase or decrease the volume just by highlighting a region "Left click on the mouse while holding down." Think it be a much safer working environment. Even with the already highlightinh of region scrolling up to move the envelope down/up cause problems as it sometimes move the entire envelope. I pray in good spirits this translate over positively. Again - Amazing job. 🍻

    Just heard on John Lehmkuhl's weekly Unify livestream that he heard from an Arturia contact that they will be including OB-XA in V collection 8 but wanted to give folks access to something new ahead of the release. The contact said that if you buy OB-XA now they will discount the upgrade cost to VC8 (presumably by the amount you pay now, IDK). Here's the bit where he mentions it... https://youtu.be/sG9Le3k7WMg?t=4395 He also shared that they will be doing a Unify patch library using Arturia synths!

    Ok, I guess this one might be a bit too much work to build as the staff view is not that popular, but I would love to have a combined PRV and Staff view, like the screen shot below. I like working in the staff view as I'm classically trained. But having the CC lanes in view is quite essential, seeing and changing the velocity and modulation without having to right click each note. Also some actions, like changing the length of a note, are much easier in the PRV than in the staff view. So having all combined would be great. (BTW, this screen shot is from Samplitude)

    I spoke to Jrrshop via email and they told me this: Thank you for your order. I apologize for the delay. Unfortunately, Tracktion sends upgrade licenses manually and it isn’t possible for us to deliver them automatically. Since they didn not deliver them yesterday, I’m afraid that we might not receive them until Monday or Tuesday. Would you like to wait or would you prefer to receive a refund? I'll wait until tomorrow....

    @Skyline_UK you can't change science There are solutions to problems like this but the solution has to be implemented at the plugin level. Plugins are serial processors from the point of view of the DAW - i.e their buffers have to be processed in sequence so a single plugin must be processed serially. So other than introducing techniques that utilize larger buffers in the DAW there isn't anything further that can be done. The plugin needs to partition its work across different cores to have the most impact. Talk to the plug-in vendor and ask them to improve their CPU efficiency.

    Doing a google search for: lurssen mastering console CPU usage ... brings up a post from just about every main DAW's forum complaining about the same issue. FL Studio, Cakewalk, Pro Tools, Studio One... they're all there. So I suspect it's an issue specific to LMC. I get similarly high Audio Processing / Engine Load values to you, and see the same behaviour when making the GUI small. In saying that, I'm running at 64 samples and not getting any dropouts or crackles. That's running LMC v1.03 on an i5 3570 @ 3.4Ghz [4 cores ], 16Gb RAM, 2TB SSD, Scarlett 6i6 1st gen. Interestingly, changing the buffer size and/or using x2 up-sampling doesn't seem to make much of a difference at all to the CPU load, which leads me to suspect the CPU load isn't in the LMC's audio processing side. I've got v1.10 on my laptop running in WASAPI mode, and it's pretty much the same - pretty high load, but not enough to cause crackles or dropouts. [Edit] - Here's what I'm seeing using 2 x oversampling with a buffer size of 64:

    I thought about it. But I am no good at that! Most of this has been found out here at work (where I am right now). We've been getting some breaks and I was able to dig into EZB a lot more than I thought I would. Let us know what you think of it. I am curious to see what a bass player thinks about it. I also hooked up TH-U bass amp and Amplitube SVT amp to the DI preset of EZB and man that really opens up the sound of that thing!!

    That's not entirely impossible. A while back (1-2 years?) I upgraded from VC5 to VC6 for $69, as part of a "buy Pigments for $100 and get VC6 for another $69" deal. Still at VC6. Never saw a VC7 upgrade offer for $99 or less, and probably wouldn't have upgraded even if. The Mellotron is the only thing in VC7 that slightly interests me. Will wait for VC8 (at $99). Hopefully they'll add something else useful/interesting (to me) in 8, or I might skip that as well. Already have a wonderful OB in the form of OP-X Pro II.

    For upgrading from an older Waveform, JRRShop is a considerably better deal than directly from tracktion. As a side note, I found it amusing that according to the picture here https://www.tracktion.com/products/retromod the source for sampling the SEM might be the Arturia SEM V instead of an Oberheim SEM...

    Robert and Steve know this, but for anyone reading who has perhaps not spent as much time at a DOS/Windows command line, if you have a lot of these files to rename, you can do a folder full with "ren *.midi *.mid" from a command prompt. You must of course navigate to the folder that contains the .midi files you wish to rename before executing the command. I find renaming multiple files from the GUI to be very tedious and hope that this may spare someone.

    I think that's why they reduce the price of this (BB cinamatic percussion) - Sonnivox won't (or can't) work out what the issue is. For what it's worth, I sent Cakewalk support a ticket (with a crash dump) to see if they can do something (Of course, they might just say "not our problem"..... but you never know...)

    If you can live without the middle mouse button (IOW clicking the mouse wheel) opening the HUD and don't mind running AutoHotkey adding the following to the default autohotkey script will map the middle mouse button to CTRL+right mouse button when CbB has focus restoring the functionality you want. There are other tools that do this as well. AHK is the one I use for a variety of tasks.
