    I bought the Elgato Streamdeck+ and sideshowfx templates for Cubase and Photoshop. I would really like the Opus Hollywood Orchestrator, but if I can only last a few more hours, I'll be safe.

    Eh, I caved in. Can't really argue with the price anymore, and even when the lowest price was closer to $400 everyone said that of all the orchestral libraries it's the best value for money. I had previously dismissed this because I thought the sound was too smooth for my taste, but I have since realized that I sometimes need that kind of sound. I still like grittier strings but they don't always sit well in the mix. And who knows, maybe now I'll start doing more orchestral stuff. Now I just need to make some space for it!

    My BF booty.. Spent more than I wanted but didn't go too crazy**... **compared to what I've previously done or could done Software: Eventide - Invigorate Heavyocity Punish2 Vanguard 2 upgrade (debated this but Vanguard1 compatibility and all the included free libraries swung me over) Tracktion Novum & Biotek Nugen $41 - update to Visualizer2 & ISL2 (probably a great price but still have mixed feelings on this as I haven't used the v1 versions in ages) Edit: forgot about Neural DSP's Tone King - wasn't even on my radar until someone mentioned it in regards the 50% off sale (which expires Nov 30th) and I tried it out. Loved it, bought it. Hardware: New set of glasses from eyebuydirect.com (been on my todo list for way too long) Yamaha PSR-EW310 keyboard w power supply (upcoming holiday present for my son) PRS locking tuners for SE Custom (hey they were on sale) Really wanted to pickup a Fender baritone guitar but it was either get my son his 1st piano or another guitar for me. On my wannabuy list but decided to opt out on:| ********************************** Audio Damage: Quanta 2 upgrade (opted for Novum, besides my upgrade price was better than the BF price so if needed this can wait) Continua - opted for Bio Tek (yes, they are not the same but to get one the other had to go) Photo, Publisher, Designer - all for $99 (barely used the previous version, can't justify buying an upgrade it) Krotos Dehumanizer 2 $150 upgrade from Simple Monsters (fun but no practical usage in near future) Vocoder by Xli (it's mine when price hits $29, otherwise it waits) NI Ultimate - KOMPLETE 14 COLLECTOR'S EDITION $499 - Oh I want it... but can't say that any piece of it will make or break me when I already have similar or in some cases better. Studio One 6 Pro update - should be cheaper around New Year's Image Line $85 Upgrade to All Plugins EDITION (no need when all this upgrade gets me is additional locked in plugins) PSP Saturator $49 (got Punish instead)

    Thanks for the post. I remember demoing this one alongside others and really liked it, but the others inched it out for me. Now that it's on a deep discount, I bit. Should be a nice addition to what I already have.

    I did WUP In October.. and I am being very good all around, other than hardware :)). I only did an update (at LONG last) TO Soundtoys 5.3 from just having Little Alter Boy. They finally up-graded me for a really good price, unlike previous silliness. I feel like a scrooge compared to others here LOL.

    Yes, it's been on my "to-buy" list for years, but I never thought it was worth what they were asking. Just demo'd it again now and it does sound great and is definitely worth 29 bucks.

    This BF I didn’t think I would buy anything, but managed to find an old boxed version of Steinberg Groove Agent 4 at a local reseller for around $30. It got automatically upgraded to the current version Groove Agent 5 when activated (MRP: $179). If this sounds familiar, I had a similar experience BF 2021 buying a boxed version of Steinberg HALion Sonic 2 for around $30 (at the same reseller) which upon activation was automatically upgraded to HALion Sonic 3 (MRP: $249). Hell Yeah! An important bonus to me is that they both run under Cakewalk, whereas Grove Agent SE and HALion Sonic SE, which both came included with Cubase Pro, apart from being meager in comparison are restricted to Cubase.

    I backed out of much of the list after realizing how much additional duplication I would have, even though I would miss all the shiny new things. Keepers: Toontrack Fusion EZBass MIDI Toontrack Metal Machine EZX = maybe some useful sounds and decent MIDI all for a MIDI pack price Audiomodern Playbeat Arturia FX3 upgrade from FX2 Left in the cart: Helix Native Scuffham S-Gear Mercuriall Reaxis Studio One Pro 6 update Baby Audio Crystalline Saved some $$$, for sure.

    Got: UAD 3 Bundle that got me 3 free UAD Manley Tube Preamp Rigid Audio Everything Bundle Two Notes IR's Audio Assault IR's EZD midi pk EzD UK EDX Cube Mini And a very nice mic for half price, but it doesn't qualify as a BF/CM deal. And I think that's it. Had 5 PA amp sims in my cart and with the dynamic discount could have gotten them for less than $10 each... but didn't pull the trigger. All in all I didn't go overboard. Glad for that. Almost pulled the trigger on the Positive Grid Smart Amp with the Carry Bag and Foot Switch. But I am hoping the wife gets the hint and picks it up for me for Christmas!!

    My consumption was not as conspicuous as previous years, and I felt quite happy about that! - upgraded an internal 1TB drive to 2TB. Can breathe now! - Nembrini "Cory Wong" amp - Cableguys "Shaperbox 3" bundle. Amazing value - DJ Swivel's "Spread" multiband eq widener - Gospel Musicians' "Splat to Clat" drums Had a decision to make about Reason 12 or just the subscription Reason + . . . I don't need any Reason synths or effects, most of which have a 20 yrs ago sound, like the AIR Xpand stuff. But Reason's new BVX Vocoder is da bomb, it sounds amazing. Almost thought about buying Reason outright to get it. That would have been around $420. Not worth it, as owning the rest of Reason 12 would be just too dumb, given what I already have covered. So I subscribed to Reason +, like 20 a month, that's lame too. A great vocoder though. A good savings season, so glad it's over!!!

    I mean, we definitely encouraging reporting issues when you experience anything with stability. But as you said, it can be difficult trying to triangulate things sometimes. The moment we're able to identify where a stability issue is, we'll fix it, but that requires being able to track down the root of the problem. For plugin crashes, there's often not much we can do on our end as if it's not the app itself that's crashing, it's up to the plugin developer to fix issues on that end. That said, we did add improved crash reporting, so even if you do not get a prompt about the crash, check the Minidumps folder in C:\Users\<user>\AppData\Roaming\cakewalk\Cakewalk Core\MiniDumps to see if a system dump was copied there as the app crashed. Beyond that, for intermittent issues, that would boil down to trying to eliminating other variables to see if you can isolate a cause that we can investigate. I appreciate this might not be the most exciting thing for many users, however troubleshooting things on the user end can greatly speed up being able to fix any potential issues on our end. Try noting whatever common threads you can find when you get a crash, particularly if the app just silently crashes.

    Probably best to ask for this advice in the Unify user forum for the best answer! https://forums.pluginguru.com/ The default with the Unify approach is to use ONLY the VST2 plugins, unless VST3 is the only option for a specific plugin that is used. For example, the plugin operations command "remove redundant plugins" deletes all VST3 plugins that have duplicates in VST2 format. That's just how they roll by design. They felt that VST2 was less problematic for them to support in general as a plugin host. They are a small team: 1 sound designer and 1 programmer. Here's a comment by Dr. Dunne on one of the Unify Forum threads: "We prefer VST2 over VST3, when available, because VST2 patch data tend to be smaller, and more compatible cross-platform (Mac/Windows)".

    I got a lot. But, almost everything was from my wishlist. So...partly successful? Some very expensive, some very cheap. Moogerfooger bundle (not on the wishlist, but it was brand new, it probably would have been), Skybox audio full bundle, Tapes.01, Neural DSP Rabae & Corey Wong, Kush Omega bundle (not on my wishlist but it was last year), Kazrog True dynamics, Newfangled Audio Invigorate (again, brand new), Goodhertz Vulf compressor, Klevgrand Fosfat, Embertone sensual sax, Yum Audio Mr Bill Slap, Ramzoid 808 cooker, Softube Tube Tech CL1B, Waldorf Streichfett, Aberrant Digitalis, Blacksalt Audio Low control, XLN Addictive drums XL. Various sample packs & preset packs (both Jovian Abyss packs make up the majority of the cost). Ujam Brute. Didn't get: Ujam brasss, Vogue and some upgrade, anything Spitfire, lots of sample packs, Dr Ms spacial thing, a couple of Klevgrand things, anything Heavyocity, and a load of plugins that didn't meet my discount criteria. Next month, some hardware.

    The best part of EW Hollywood OPUS is that you don't need to download all at once. If you set it right, orchestrator would download what is needed for the preset you are using. I hope they will come with orchestrator presets that will make use of their other libraries. For example, choir, pianos, etc.

    Haven't pulled the trigger on almost anything yet. Luckily many of these sales go till tomorrow / Thursday. Still deciding on: 1) Audio Imperia Lite bundle + upgrade to Nucleus Full + crossgrade to Jaeger + grabbing Cerebrus. 2) Orchestral Tools Ark 0-5 bundle. 3) Spitfire Audio ==> looking at various libraries to qualify for Cassette Symphony. Likely Polaris + a couple of Originals I don't own. 4) East West Opus upgrade from prior orchestra. 5) Performance Samples Con Moto Basses to qualify for Pacific Strings intro offer. Will potentially spend a TON of money in the next 6 hours. Or nothing at all. I can't decide. Fffffffffff. Clock is ticking.... Did pick up Total Max 3.5 upgrade for $70, and a couple small plugins and libraries. But can't decide on big orchestral purchases, and I haven't upgraded orchestra stuff in years. Which is why I'm tempted to wait on Pacific Strings.

    If you're getting an app hang, you might be able to force a dump by following Noel's advice here: Also, another good idea is to set the ExceptionHandlingSeverity variable to 7 (Preferences > File > Initialization File), which causes Cakewalk to report every error it can, including any otherwise benign ones. That should give you an error log at %appdata%\cakewalk\logs\cakewalk.log Like Jon said, if you can reproduce it and report it, there's a better chance of it being fixed and we all win

    Take a look at them. I originally bought Waveform back in version 8 with the plan to create MIDI patterns in there and export them to Cakewalk. But Cakewalk never really liked how Waveform exported multitrack MIDI files. Funny enough, I discovered that Reaper was actually brilliant when you imported the same file. It prompted you to split to separate tracks! So you might appreciate the Waveform MIDI export since you mainly use Reaper. The Waveform generators are not as sophisticated as those in Scaler, or probably something like InstaChord or InstaComposer, but they are quick and fun to mess with. Note: this is an old video but it's a good getting started overview...
