    Does this mean we run the installer then have to UN-install all the plugins we don't own? Not that I'm complaining about an update, but I guess I'm complaining... 🙂 P. I DO like my T-Racks plugins though, just not all the "mess".

    Does it actually work? Would it dry up a cinesamples brass or some other kontakt thing dripping with room? Does it just truncate a tail? Does it sound unnatural? Should I demo it? Am I too durned lazy?

    What I can never understand about PA is when you click on the "Image" it shows a big pic of some DAW and the plugin inside that. To me that makes no sense. If I want to see a DAW, I'll go to that website and look at their images!! IOW, if your going to show an image that bi, make it all of your plugin!!

    The modeled vs sampled discussion is something that can never really be resolved. People should get what they want. I have a template I will be working on forever where I put similar instruments and presets in folders. The other day I put my favorite Keyscape Wurli patch in. I then loaded the Arturia Wurli in. Now the Arturia Wurli has tons of presets and most of them are very distorted or effect sounds. The sampled Keyscape sounds incredible. It sounds like a Wurli. The Arturia Wurli sounds sort of Wurli-ish. It is so unbelievably terrible next to Keyscape that it didn't make it into my template. Now somebody else can use those Wurl presets in Arturia and enjoy them for what they are. But they don't stand up to the samples in Keyscape. I just got Modo Bass and think it is an incredible program. But there is one bass in there that is a model of a Rickenbacker bass I owned for ten years. And I'm sorry, but it's not good. The Scarbee is better. But that's not why you buy Modo Bass. It gives you infinite options that no sampled bass gives you. Also in my template is a folder with 80s chimey digital piano sounds. I owned a DX7 for a long time and I like that stuff. There's the great MKS-20 from Keyscape, a few select presets from UVI digital library, Synth Anthology has some of the best stuff in there because it has Kawaii K3, which is really different from everything else. But the Arturia DX7? Nothing that's good. The free Dexed is SO much better. Probably because freeware can emulate Yamaha tech with more freedom than Arturia can. Maybe they have to make it a little more different because they're selling? No idea. Anyway, for the sound I was looking for, one of the most popular sounds in a decade,there should be a freaking good preset on a DX7 model. Syntronik really blows almost everything away. Because Syntronik has most of T-RackS and Amplitube built in and so the presets come loaded with some amazing effects. Syntronik takes this sound and makes something new with it. One of the best DX7 libraries out there is FM2, a free one on iOS. I love that. To me it comes down to what sounds you're looking for for the music you make. Stack the sounds from sampled vs modeled in your DAW and pick what you like best. The answer will change based on the sound you're looking for. You may prefer a modeled piano to a sampled piano--a lot of people do. When it comes to synths it may help if you've actually owned the hardware. For example, the Korg Collection M1 is to my ears the same as my M1. I think they just took the brains of the M1 and put it into iM1. So that's not modelling--it's Korg to Korg. Anything in Arturia where they have a relationship with the original developer should be great. But who really cares if a synth is "authentic" or not? Having all the customizing options in Arturia may over-ride that. Just as with Modo Bass or Modo Drums. I think Synth Anthology II is awesome and I am very glad I bought it. Its presets will find many, many spots in my template, because they have been curated as best of the best.

    The only important part is written in English, the man has problems with REAC in the latest CbB version. I think it is also not correct to claim that "nobody knows" the language of the largest country in the world 😉 Yes, it is not in the list of official languages of current "Cakewalk home". But since "Cakewalk country" has 4 official languages, I think it is ok to use different languages in this forum, no?

    Here's an acoustic ballad I've been going back and forth with for a while. Shortened it a few times but now settled on this longer version. Fictional lost love break up song from a guy getting the last word in , but too tired to get excited . Any feedback welcome. Thanks for the listen .. mark https://soundcloud.com/user-810058643/so-cold

    Cakewalk did not offer physical media for Platinum. You will have to create the disks yourself. The installers are available in your old Cakewalk account. Addictive Drums and Melodyne are managed by their respective companies. XLN Audio has a universal installer for their products. It is available at their site Melodyne should be downloaded directly from your Celemony account. With the exception of these two products, the rest of Platinum should be installed using the Cakewalk Command Center. The installers used by the Cakewalk Command Center are the same as the installers in your old Cakewalk Account. They are cached on your PC. The default location is C:\ProgramData\Cakewalk\Command Center\Downloads. Cakewalk By BandLab can use everything bundled with 64 bit Platinum. CbB started with the Platinum code base so the DAW is very similar to Platinum except it does not include most of the plug-ins and content bundled with Platinum. Of course, CbB has been updated regularly since BandLab purchased the code. Currently BandLab recommends performing a full install of SONAR Platinum then install CbB.

    Yes, the key is key! On guitar it makes a massive difference too, as when people use traditional open chords, the actual chord voiceings change. Its a hard decision though, as sometimes a great key on an instrument, may be bad for a vocalist. Usually I prioritise vocals.

    If you work with sampled instruments you can create your own original sounds by combining instrumental voices together, specifically for your lead (melody) instrument. Write the parts in unison with each other or write one or more in octaves. Some suggested combinations are flute and clarinet, guitar and tenor sax, trombone (upper range) and alto sax. oboe and clarinet. Harpsichord (yes, harpsichord) and almost any tuned percussion instrument. The possibilities of instrument combinations is endless. Make sure that none of the instruments in the group dominates the others in volume. It's best to limit the number of instrumental voices in the group to three or four for best quality. Play around with your own combinations. It's fun and it will certainly add listening interest to your music. By experimenting you can create some ear-catching, fresh, new, original instruments. I have used this technique since sampled instruments came upon the scene. Larry Graham Alexander

    Thanks to everyone for the suggestions and fantastic comments. You always help me identify problem areas I'm not aware of. I really appreciate the Boz Scaggs references , definitely take that as a compliment. I love doing instrumentals but I've started working harder on vocal songs before my Old voice kicks the bucket for good. Thanks again ... mark

    I've had good experience with their freebies in the past so I'm willing to give these a try. I would take the criticism with a grain of salt and decide for yourself. I'm not saying that they don't warrant criticism because I don't really know but what I am saying is that on the internet one negative feedback gets repeated over and over across multiple forums to where it looks like there is much more to fear than there really is. For example, I work for an A/V company and we've learned that online feedback is like gold but that it's also a curse. It takes 10 positive reviews to counter just one negative review and I can't tell you how many times the negative reviews are by some pretty shady people who nobody wants to deal with. That's just my personal experience so I tend to give very little credit to online reviews these days and just try them out for myself. Currently I'm auditioning some studio monitors and I'm surprised at how different I feel about the ones I'm auditioning versus the feedback I'm seeing online.

    I have a very low opinion of these. In my opinion you are better off getting one or two great guitars than all four of these. Telematic is so poor it's not worth even mentioning. I would strongly recommend buying from Indiginus or AmpleSound or Orange Tree Samples. Indiginus stands out to me as offering real value. The quality is awesome and the prices are very low. OTS has a big sale every summer that is usually 60% off, and usually find them for sale for good prices on KVR all year round because of this. AmpleSound is always pretty expensive, but deservedly so--they also have great acoustic guitar and bass freebies that you should check out HERE. I think the AmpleSound freebie acoustic guitar beats all four of these. Sunbird was considered by many to be the best VI for fingerpicking, but in my opinion, it has been surpassed by other instruments. NI's Picked Acoustic is my favorite, an amazing virtual instrument and it includes a playable instrument as well as the picking and strumming. I also like the ujam guitars. I recently did a video on HALion on the fingerpicking guitars, which I think are the best on the market, but of course, you need to buy HALion. 😀 HALion is on sale and the info and my video are in this thread

    Hi Keith, really nice tune and great sounds you have! great vox. really nice dreamy guitar in the solo! your mix is really compressed, tho, it doesn't breathe much and when you add the keys in for the chorus, they tend to step on the vox, they sound too hot. just my 2 cents.

    Ok...they have now entered the "EVEN DUMBER" phase... I got reply from my service request stating the following: Hi Larry, Thanks for getting in touch! Although the files are set up for new purchases, we're still rolling out the update for existing users, so once we have all files ready to go for existing users, we'll send out an email with instructions. In the meantime, sorry about the trouble, there's a window of time where trying to download while swapping the files will result in a corrupted download. However, I'll regenerate any lost downloads from your end! Hope this helps! Best, Christian I responded with the following: Isn't it kind of "dumb" to WAIT, as an existing user, for you to send an update emails, AFTER you've already sent out the update email??? Just curious, as it doesn't seem to make much sense, but what do I know..

    I also own this and paid the same amount directly through Udemy in one of their many sales. According to Udemy I am 24% of the way through it. I started at the beginning and worked my way through a lot of the initial chord patterns and then jumped to particular pieces that I wanted to learn later on. It's definitely worth this amount and I do find it useful for learning standard keyboard patterns and applying them to well known songs.

    The sounds come without much action in the foreground to provide a very clear and detailed acoustic image of each room, giving you the perfect background noise layer to break the silence in your post production project. Undoubtedly, this can be easily used in stereo productions as well. Either chose the angle yourself or use the stereo version (included in the 3D SURROUND edition). BUY NOW AUDIO DEMO

    Try the "Questions and Answers" composing technique that I have demonstrated in my work below: "Questions And Answers" You don't have to restrict the questions and answers to just two instruments, of course and this technique is applicable to all genres of music. The changes of keys from minor to major and back to minor are another compositional thang. Regards, Larry Graham Alexander

    Nope, you can´t. I disable Snap, select a small snippet of audio, press CTL+L and it selects an eighth note length for looping, ignoring my selection. If I enter the values manually in the Loop selection module, as soon as I set one, it changes the other to make the selection larger. From what I see here, Andy is right. I don´t really loop this short, so I had not noticed, but unless we are missing something very obvious, there is a limitation.

    Just wanted the community to know about this. I created a channel using cakewalk and I hope to get your support to spread this video out because I want my channel to be a place to know how to create different genres of music. Just a heads up, because this is my first time, the video is not as good as it sounds on my speakers. I'll figure it out how to solve that issue soon or if any of you guys having who have your experience, it will be appreciated to have your opinion. Here is the link:

    I use Studioware Panels and CAL scripts every day with my work flow in CbB. I have created my own custom Studioware Panels and CAL scripts specifically for this purpose. Hint to the Bakers: Please don't ever remove support for Studioware Panels and CAL scripts from CbB. In fact, if an update of CbB ever removed the use of Studioware Panels and CAL scripts all together, I would be forced to stop at the last version of CbB that supports Studioware Panels and CAL scripts.
