    Thanx Reid! Not hardly a god...nothing close... but I put in a LOT of work....way more than most realize... I start at 5 am...and go all day long trying to keep track of all of these sales, and trying not to double post, and trying to make sure that I've put the requested "disclaimers" i.e... Full Kontakt, iLok, eLicenser...etc...in the posts...it's takes a lot of time and effort...despite what some people think!

    I've stated this before, so I'll state it again... Please don't ask OTHERS to do YOUR legwork... They are already posting the deals, so you ALSO want them to do the work to check and see if it's compatible with YOUR system? SERIOUSLY? If the deal interests you, then YOU need to do the research and find out if it's compatible with YOUR system - or something you'd want - NOT the person posting the deal. It only takes a few seconds to click through and check "System Requirements"! We do such things as a courtesy most of the time, and I get that this is only a request, but we need to "think things through thoroughly"! Sometimes the OP may just be too busy to do YOUR homework for you. I'm not trying to be mean...just LOGICAL

    It's nuts. I was up early, but didn't even get to eat breakfast until 11. I'm typing all day and I'm always behind. I don't know how King Larry does it. The man is a God. Maybe it's because I still haven't gotten over my Covid shot? No morning bike rides for me from now on.

    Just another quick word... I've had this same conversation over "Full Kontakt" and "Kontakt Player" in the posts... I do it, when I can, as a courtesy, and I fully understand the request, but people also need to understand that the OP's time is JUST AS VALUABLE as anyone else's time! When I post, I try to verify this, and put it in the post, and iLok, but not always...as sometimes my time is constrained. If others want to post that info, because they actually DID do the homework, that IS helpful, and to them I give thanx for taking THEIR time to do it!

    We're pleased to announce Early Access for 2021.11! This is primarily a maintenance release that includes fixes for a few user reported issues. It also includes several optimizations and improvements to the behavior when using Track/Bus Solo, exclusive solo and solo override functionality, especially when used in more complex routing scenarios utilizing aux tracks and sidechains. If you have encountered any of the cases listed below, please check out this release and and confirm that your issue is resolved before we release the official public version (most likely early next week). This release cycle will be very short so only regressions or severe bugs will be considered. Please note that Early Access installers are update installers, which only update from a specific version. To install the 2021.11 Early Access build, you must be on the latest public release of 2021.09. Download Cakewalk 2021.11 EA installer Should you need to revert to the 2021.09 release, you can download the Cakewalk 2021.09 Rollback installer. If you haven't already done so, please read about the Early Access Program before participating. Please keep responses specific to problems or comments on this release. Unrelated bugs or feature requests should be posted in other threads or the feature request channel. Thanks again for your participation! The Bakers Updated to 27.11.0.010 This contains the following additional improvements: Soloing a bus now includes any sidechain sends to plugins in tracks/buses Improvements to plugin silence flushing Solo, Exclusive Solo and Solo Override improvements The internals for track and bus solo have been greatly improved to handle more complex routing scenarios with tracks and buses routing or sending to aux tracks and side chains. Prior to this release there were scenarios where soloing intermediate tracks or buses would not solo all the parts of the signal flow. Additionally, solo override now works consistently with aux tracks and tracks containing active sidechains. Dim solo has also been made aware of the solo override state and works consistently. Issues Resolved in Cakewalk 2021.11 EA (build 27.11.0.010): Solo: Soloing a bus silences any sidechain sends to plugins in tracks/buses unless sending tracks are soloed Switching exclusive solo between aux tracks can cause the solo state to get out of sync Regression: Exclusive Solo Mode not working after unsoloing track Regression: Exclusive Solo "solo override" fails to work properly Solo Override does not behave as expected on Aux tracks or buses Solo Override does not behave as expected with Dim Solo Sidechain fails to trigger when soloing bus Soloing buses without an input streams audio not sent to bus Soloing a track with a send to an aux would not make the aux audible Export: Melodyne used as track effect hangs on export audio Some Mix Enables check boxes too large for dialog Duplicate filenames warning appears whenever using {taskname} tag Export Audio dialog not clearing/restoring exclusive solo / track solo override status Export Audio: "Use same settings for all" option not appearing for "Tracks through entire mix" Export audio directory should be deleted if not used, and only created for cwp projects Misc.: Preferences dialog categories illegible in High Contrast mode in Windows CTRL+SHIFT drag import of MIDI causes clips to overlap unexpectedly Step Sequencer clip fails to loop in user project Articulations ignored when scrubbing in Piano Roll view Piano Roll scrub stops working after using Clips scrub Add StickyFileExportNotification registry setting Softube plugins throwing error on scan and writing null CSLID to inventory Clean audio folder suggests deleting files in default export audio folder Disable project auto-save while File Export/Bounce to Track(s) dialogs are open

    Some of you may remember my video about how to save money on music software. It was fun to do because it has a shout-out to King Larry, but it was not a very successful video. It's still up there. This year I cut two minutes out of it and made a video that is just about my Tiger sale. Since the time I did the original, I've developed a lot of techniques to inject maximum stupidity into my videos through sound effects, video clips, and other nonsense. I hope these two minutes are more fun to watch than they were in the original. And as you know, I made a redirect from tigerthefrog.com to the VI:Control post. If any of are involved with social media, please pass it on to anybody you think might be interested. Obviously a lot of my info comes from this forum, but I actually get a bit of it elsewhere , from Reddit, Rekkerd, KVR, and just hunting around in places like Loot Audio. But the big thing about this is not being first, but the way it is organized in categories and alphabetized.

    Again, you gentlemen, and ladies, prove why you are the BEST! Some of you are FAR TOO GENEROUS! Honestly, I wasn't making it this month, and this saved my *****...and I MEAN THAT! I'm STILL fighting with Social Security to get my benefits...which should start in January! So for the past 6 years I've lived on $180 a month! That's a MAJOR TASK! So, this forum has kept my mind ( and my heart) busy while I've waited to get my SS benefits! My only other source of income has been the pittance that I get on KVR...and that is now virtually nothing...so, if all goes well, ONE MORE MONTH to endure before I can "actually live"! I lift a BIG cup of Coffee to you ALL! So, my hats off to you ALL for your kindness! 💯 May your Holidays be HAPPY and FESTIVE and may the Good Lord bless you ALL! THANK YOU!

    My goal is to keep so busy doing my sales post that I don't have time to buy anything. It's never worked before, but there's always hope. It is true that over the years I have bought so much crap that the wishlist gets smaller. One thing I'm looking at is the V Collection. I haven't updated mine since 2016, so if the update is $100 I will finally do it.

    Larry, You should definitely check out Ko-fi. https://ko-fi.com/ It's easy to set up a page and they take no fee. When somebody buys you a coffee it goes immediately into your PayPal. And you don't have to give out your email. All the best, Reid PS Glad you're doing this!

    Hey cclary, thanks for sharing this (and so many other deals! you rock!). Small correction: BPB newsletter signup is optional. You will still get the freebie even if you don't sign up. There's another exclusive freebie coming next week (and then again for Black Friday). Cheers!

    Amen, brother. I recently bought a plugin that I already owned and have never used. Still haven't used it. This will likely be the third Black Friday in a row where I haven't bought anything. I just can't think of anything I really need, regardless of price. That includes both software and hardware. Too bad you can't buy motivation. I'd pay full price for that. Wisdom, though, I'd wait for a sale.

    Gotta admit I kinda miss the excitement of Thanksgiving morning thinking of what may be in Black Friday sales. All this Early BF thing I am not a fan of. I notice all the stores are jumping on this early thing, not a fan. I also miss the Best Buy ad I used to get with my newspaper. Call me Old Fashioned

    Finally, finished my Cakewalk Tutorial Series geared towards beginners. The series is made in a way that even those who are new to music production as a whole (not just Cakewalk) will be able to understand the concepts. We are in fact producing a piece of music through the series. However, the production should be seen as a tool to help the viewer understand Cakewalk effortlessly. Here are the videos - Video Episodes 1 through 5 deals with the most basic stuff that needs to be understood or set up, before we actually start a project. Without these, Cakewalk is quite blank to even start a project. After we have set all the necessary things up, we can start working in Cakewalk. From Video Episodes 6 through 14, we see the core concepts of Cakewalk and see how they actually fit in the actual production process. 1. How to Install Cakewalk by Bandlab Obviously the first thing to do. The installation process should be done with a bit of care, as we need the files in the appropriate locations. Otherwise we might end up having to fix those later in the future, & can lead to unnecessary confusion.In this video, we go through the installation process step-by-step. In the end, we also go through some initial setting up post-installation. If you installed with a random directory, thinking you could change them in the future, a normal re-installation process will not some of them. You will have to follow the steps listed in this page. 2. How to install VST Plugins If a DAW is a factory, then the plugins are the machinery. Cakewalk does have enough plugins to mix, but seriously lacks in the category of Instrument plugins (plugins that create sound).In this video, we see how we can add plugins (instruments or FX) into Cakewalk. 3. Working with Samples in Cakewalk Samples are pieces of short Audio. This video could have been done later in the series. However, I wouldn't have been able to place it right in the story telling. Besides we do need to understand what samples are before we get into the next video. 4. Working with Sampler Plugins Samplers are plugins into which we can load samples. Some samplers can be used for quite simple purposes like triggering a one-shot sample (short audio sample), while some others can be used in sophisticated ways like a synthesizer. In this video, we look mostly look into the former type. 5. Working with Sample Libraries Several small audio samples combine to form libraries. These libraries can be loaded into plugins that can be categorized as Sample Players (advanced sampler). Sample libraries are the way to go if you want to emulate realistic instruments. 6. Cakewalk Piano Roll View The Piano Roll View is where we can write music inside Cakewalk. We write the melody and the corresponding instrument will generate the corresponding pitch. 7. How to make Drum Beats in Cakewalk We can do this by using samples directly in the Clips Pane (Main Timeline) or, by using a sampler plugin. However, there are some more stuff that should be understood to program drums efficiently. We see those in this video. 8. Cakewalk Step Sequencer Watch the video if you want FL Studio like Step Sequencer. Also, the video is kind of like an extension of the previous video. 9. Cakewalk Console View The Console view is like the imitation of the mixing consoles we see in Studios (or movies 🤭). This is where we mix our project. Mixing is the process by which multiple sounds are combined into one or more channels. The video goes in detail on each module. If you see it from beginning to end, you will be able to translate mixing tutorials on any DAW, into CbB console view. 10. How to Record MIDI In video 6, we saw how we can enter MIDI notes by using the mouse. But, if you do know how to play a keyboard, then you can connect a MIDI keyboard and record your performance. This video involves setting up the MIDI device and all the recording process. 11. How to Record Audio Just like MIDI, we can record audio (vocal, instruments, etc). In this video, we record stuff without using any interface to connect the recording devices. 12. Automation in Cakewalk Automation means to record the movement of a control such that the next time we play, that control plays automatically. Automation is one of the keys to making our project sound good. Not just mixing, they can also give some very interesting musical results. In this video, we go through everything we can do in Cakewalk with respect to automation. 13. Bounce Audio inside Cakewalk We might need to bounce MIDI or audio into the processed output inside the DAW itself. It could be to reduce the load on the CPU, or to implement some creative ideas (like reversing the audio). In this video we go through the two methods to do this. 14. How to Export from Cakewalk Not only in the end of the production, we might have to export the project out of Cakewalk for different reasons (like for collaborating and all). In this video, we go through almost all of them along with the final export to get a streaming ready file. And that is the end of the absolute basic stuff needed to be understood to make music in Cakewalk. I'll still be uploading videos to the same Playlist, but they will not be numbered episodes as they don't need to be seen in order. Regards - AdK (Until I finalise my artist name) ______________________________________ PS - Making Tutorials is not the only thing I do in my channel. My primary goal is to inspire new comers to produce music with Cakewalk & other freeware. Cheers..!

    Success! We have found our new bass player. His timing is good, he can sing harmony, isn't a drug addict, alcoholic or general flake. He's a Reaper user, but I can overlook that. It was a long day. I sang and played for 9 hours straight, something I haven't done in a very long while. Now comes the slog of working him in in time for the next gig, which fortunately is nearly a month away. I am beat. But it was a good day today.
