  3. Its still EA but barring any issues it will likely get publicly released tomorrow. There are quite a few fixes to app startup, offline activation and product center so give it a try. Additionally the login screen now shows a confirmation instead of going into BandLab.

  5. I'm at a point now where I will only buy music products I know are being copied from official retailers like Sweetwater. The biggest issue is this: especially with Amazon, it doesn't matter if you buy from the official company store or not. Every item that gets shipped to Amazon's warehouse gets shoved into the same place as the fake ones because they are seen as the same item, and Amazon simply pulls from that supply so all those fakes just get mixed in with the real ones. So if you buy a Shure mic from the "Shure Store" on Amazon, there is still a high probability that you will be sent one of the fakes that just got thrown in the pile with the fake mics that look the same.

  8. There are only 2 inputs on the Scarlett 2i4. If you've set: Track 1 -> Output 1, Track 2 -> Output 2, Track 3 -> Output 3 Track 4 -> Output 4 That's all you need to do. I'm not exactly sure what you're trying to achieve though - I've got 32 inputs / 34 outputs on my interface, and I rarely use more than 2 outputs (i.e. the stereo L/R), unless I'm going out to external hardware effects and back again. Most of the time, all tracks are set to output to the Master bus, and the master bus is set to output to outputs 1L + 2R (stereo). The only time you need to use the additional outputs is: - When you need a send to an external hardware effects unit - When you have a separate (and usually different) monitor mix from your main one.

  9. By my definition no. Looking it up in theSteven's imaginary book of definitions - my definition of a sub is, for example Adobe, where you build no equity with your payments and regardless of when you quit subscribing you end up with nothing. The OP's comment about rent to own is closer to the mark. I guess anything that you have to regularly pay for updates or new versions could be considered subscriptions. In which case BitWig, Cubase, StudioOne and others are subscriptions. Still YM(or opinion)MV. At this point I own MComplete but $16 per month I might have opted for this back when.

  10. Because they won't be able to install the new version on their pc even if they wanted to ? Also, until fairly recently I think it's fair to say that the impression was very much given that users would never be locked out of their older projects- that even if the program/company ceased to exist - something would be done to ensure that scenario wouldn't happen. That doesn't seem to be the case any more so if some people are now feeling a bit nervous about being a Cakewalk user all over again then I can understand that.

  14. I pretty much always use the plugin browser search nowadays, typing in 3 or 4 characters of the plugin name usually narrows it down to a small enough list for me to spot it and drag it in... and I've got nearly 2000 plugins on one of my machines.

  16. That's a very good deal. The only drawback to the Suite is there's an additional 70gb you will rarely use. The only plus is Max4Live. It's probably worth effort to learn it but there are also great 3rd party devices for it.

  17. You are correct Jesse. Walmart and Amazon should do a better job vetting the vendors that use their sites to sell. That said, in reality it comes down to what Steven says... money. Amazon making a killing letting anyone, and I mean anyone sell products on thier site. They could care less if they rip someone off with fake products. They making their dollars. Walmart has watched from the sidelines and finally said, "heck with this, we not letting Amazon make all the money. We want our share too!" So they are doing the same thing. Why? Cause we keep buying. And when we figure it out and stop buying bs fakes, they will have already made enough money to be able to shift to whatever business model necessary. As always: buyer beware.

  18. @Cannimagine historically when new versions of SONAR where released they installed in a parallel directory within the Cakewalk directory structure. On my current machine I have both SONAR Platinum and CbB. Within the Cakewalk directory tree there are two significant directories SONAR Platinum which hold the program code unique to SONAR Platinum Cakewalk Core which holds the program code unique toCakewalk by Bandlab Then there is the other directories that are shared by both programs. I suspect that when Cakewalk Sonar is released we will see a new directory in that tree which will hold the code unique to it. All we need to do is patiently wait whilst it finishes baking in the Cakewalk oven.

  19. @Cannimagine you’re happy with CbB, right. You’ve been happy all along; right? I’m confident that the move to the “new” Sonar will be as seamless as each CbB update has been. Worry not, the “bakers” have got this! t

  20. That's just bad business! Companies like Walmart and Amazon should check out all of the folks who request to sell via their websites. Selling false or bad products makes them look bad. Who cares about the little shady company lurking in the background who is actually selling the items. It's the larger company with the well known name that is going to get the bad rep for performing the final sale. Here is a slap for Walmart and Amazon for allowing these creeps to use their website to do bad business.

  21. I have not tried them in depth, only twice for a few hours. Yes, they can be a time saver, and the more plugins you have, the more chains are available. Filtering for what you own is easy, and if you are picking your favourites over time and know the chains in-depth, you can become really fast I guess. One thing you can do is start the demo (for a week I think) with a bundle that's attractive to you, take some time and use the stuff in a project or two and see if it's for you. There are other solutions around with a similar approach. Two that I prefer: 1. PSP Infinistrip, great presets, but "only" a channel strip. At PSP, they have certain plans to extend the software, but I don't know any details. 2. Hofa System. A plugin toolbox that goes beyond channel strips. A bit expensive, 350 presets which are really good and endless possibilities. My favourite time saver, one plugin per track to do 90% of the work. As you see, I'm not a friend of "go to the web and download preset chains", but rather a curated set of presets that tick a lot of boxes. An ever-growing collection in the cloud does not guarantee the stuff is good and well-curated, and an essential thing to keep in mind is that chains are solutions you have to analyse before being good and fast with them. A finite set of presets suits me better. But that's just me.

  23. Not a bug. Almost certainly user error. Probably a sample rate mismatch Even if it was a bug, no way are the developers going to bother with 13 year old obsolete, discontinued software.

  24. Yep. That’s what I did. Borrowed a whole load of guitars and recorded a whole load of different pickup configurations. With the plugins I already owned I ended up getting Complete for a tenner.

  25. People on VI-C are layering sampled pianos with the resonance engine from Pianoteq: https://vi-control.net/community/threads/adding-pianoteq-resonance-to-sampled-pianos.145427/ I have yet to try it myself, but it sounds really good and makes me excited to waste a lot of time trying it on every one of those 217 piano libraries I own.

  26. I know more people that use Adobe than use a DAW with adon effects as a hobby and I live in both worlds. Both are worlds of a sea of hobbiests vs a small pool of people making a sustainable living wage at it, and ironically it takes most more than a decade to make pro level results in music and plenty of people can get good enough for a small gig in photography/editing in less than two years without prior experience with some practice and youtube instruction. Much harder to overcome the investment costs in music than it is in the digital art world.

The developer describes Time1 as an open-source delay modulator similar to plugins like Gross Beat or TimeShaper, while Gate1 is an envelope generator for gate and volume control.

  29. The amount of fraud happening through Amazon, is pretty alarming. I'm not a fan of how some items come up through other sellers. Pretty shady, imo. It's like they don't vet anything at all.

  30. JT3Jon, Anything purchased from Walmart online can be returned via their Walmart Supercenter. I had a store that would not accept an online 3rd party vendor's item sold at Walmart Online at their store and the returns person kept saying it couldn't be returned there. Well, she was correct, but she didn't know that the Supercenter could take the return back. I called Walmart Corporate office and they instructed me to take it to the Walmart Supercenter and they took it back. Supercenters receive all Walmart's online purchases there.

  31. It has been a while since I have been able to participate on the Forum. A lot has been posted -- I have a lot of catching up to do. Here is a little number about a guy dealing with his best friend who is trying to "snake" his girlfriend. Gee, has anyone experienced this -- like in high school? This song is very rough since it has been a while since I have attempted a song. My wife and I have been sharing CoVid for the past few weeks. I am going to use that as an excuse for the vocals. They are a bit rough (the high notes were hard to reach and sustain). I am planning to re-do them as soon as I get my voice back but I thought that I would request some feedback in order to correct other errors as well. Overall, I was looking for a live performance in a small venue feel - so - complete perfection isn't necessary but clean-up is. Thanks in advance!

  32. EDITED: To better identify exported audio clips, request project - track - clip name - [#](#) format, same as MIDI clips. Current: 1. When dragging to export single audio clips, file name reflects ONLY the clip name (#). 2. When dragging to export multiple audio clips from one track, they are bounced together and file name changes to reflect ONLY the project name (#). clips: files: Which is which??

  33. So thinking of buying something with that $10 off, since I can live with paying $19 . What's the real difference between Masterdesk, Masterdesk Pro, Masterdesk True Peak? Any reason to even think about True Peak if you own Pro? What's the difference between Shadow Hills - Mastering Compressor and Shadow Hills - Mastering Compressor Class A?

  34. I'd like a modified version of your idea and the original way. So the clip name, with an underscore and the project details at the end. Like that we get the best of both worlds, knowing what the file actually is, but also where it might've come from.

  35. Exactly what you said, created a new project, inserted a new audio track, set interleave to the track to mono and then inserted the mono flavor of the vst3.

  36. There's little incentive for honesty, you may even get punished. You don't get bonuses for the amount of business you turn away even if it's fraudulent and when the $$ is the only benchmark then we have issues. Most of those companies will refund your money if you make a fuss, it's just the cost of doing business - for every return there's probably 5 to 10 that aren't and that is still a high profit margin.

  39. I actually found the Audient EVO 8 at a local dealer today, and I immediately (bought it) and plugged in to this oddly named "audio USB-C" -Because the motherboard came with this USB to jack-cable, I was afraid it had limited functionallity. Turned out; it didn't. It worked just like I hoped it would; just like a normal audio-interface connection. Thanx, guys! (Byebye, Octa-capture)

  42. (there, fixed that for you) not their obligations ? could of fooled me… we’ll just have to “agree” to “disagree” on that. IF you distrust BandLab, Reaper is a very affordable alternative. Many here have migrated to Studio One and it is a robust platform (I hear). BUT whatever you do, you need to get over the “wrongs” inflicted on you by Henry. He is “bad guy”. It’s time to move on my son. Perhaps turn this “angst” into song? t my apologies in advance for getting yet another thread locked. I know better, but my “trigger finger” can only “itch” so much before I take a deep breath, exhale slowly, and squeeze it… as @Bapusaid: IBTL

  43. My password for this site was stolen once.... A few days later they sent it back to me with a note saying that as they had since wasted several hours of their lives sifting through endless amounts of bollocks they were giving it back to me as a punishment.

  44. Unfortunately, a lot of the bad actors collecting the money are not even within the realm of US prosecution (you can search for state-sponsored hackers making significantly more stealing crypto-currency). Just for fun I asked someone at the USPTO many years ago now, "How many copyright infringements do you have on file against China?" and got "Way more than I could count... it is a LOT." So of course I followed up with, "And now the punchline... what legal recourse do you have to prosecute them?" and I got the deer in the headlights look back. End of conversation. The streaming services are the enablers for the thefts (they can be gone after to a very limited extent), but they have already doled out funds they cannot recover and will fight tooth and nail not to pay twice or admit fault. Given the background of both of these guys they should have known that from the start, but they definitely know the uphill battle ahead. As much as people complain about Google data collection, realize there are similar services doing the same thing, with people on the back-end searching for ways to monetize what they are collecting. I have stated this before, but it is always worth repeating and something to keep in mind (and be sure your children understand this). Everything published to the internet is accessible to anyone in the world, is permanent public record, and may fall into the hands of people with skewed "moral compasses."

  45. Not anymore. It's a bunch of samples with clever scripting. I'm considering either this or Telos by Impact Soundworks. Both are quite exquisite and should get the job done.

  46. Because you asked: the ability to theme CbB is a very strong reason why I am still using it today. I have two themes I use and neither of them are Tungsten or Mercury. I'll wait and see what the future holds for theming Sonar before giving a final answer, of course 🙂

  48. I used to be a big fan as well. I still have a ton of them, but when they did the subscription switcheroo I bailed. I keep thinking I might get back in, but I guess I have enough residual fear that they might do it again that I can't quite pull the trigger.
