  1. Sorry it took me so long to get back to you all on this. I just started working again on projects. I set the default to the realtek hi definition as suggested, but the problem still persist. When I try to set the buffer size to a higher number it usually crashes the computer, and I get a Windows stopcode. Any other suggestions are much appreciated. Thank you.
  2. I am dubbing all of my old tapes from 60 years to my computer. I just came across a tape where the speed is too fast. It sounds like chipmunks. I can't slow my tape deck to the next lowest speed. I went ahead and recorded the tape as I can tell there are things on there that I'd like to save before I throw away all of these tapes. Is there a way in Cakewalk to slow down these recordings in Cakewalk to about half of what is playing so that it is the right speed? Thank you
  3. Thank you for that information! I can't wait to get back into my studio to try out the suggestions. I am using ASIO. It will be around Aug10th before I can see the results. I will be sure to post the results.
  4. Thank you so much for the info on the Firestudio. I am away from home for another 4 weeks so I won't be able to try it until them. I am anxious to see how I have it set up. I think that maybe I do have FS set up as the default. I am wondering if you also got the blue screen of death at times, and if so did it go away when you changed the default. I am using Windows on a powerful Xeon Processor Machine. I had wondered if being a Xeon had anything to do with it. Thank you
  5. I am wondering if anyone could offer suggestions on why my Universal control for the Firestudio by Personus changes the buffer size. I have had this problem a long time. I have been dealing with it by just setting it back, but sometimes it crashes. For instance, I may have it at at higher number like 512, 1024, or even 2048 at 44.1Khz, in the normal mode, and it may play fine for a while, but then switch to a lower number like 128 or 256 where I start hearing clicks and pops. If i move it back it will sometimes crash the program or even the entire computer where I get a blue screen of death. I think part of the problem is that maybe I don't know exactly how it works or how to set it up correctly. I am always so busy recording or producing something that I haven't taken the time to deal with this. Any help is much appreciated. Thank You
  6. John, thank you for the response. So by render you mean "bonce to clip" right? And then, if I need to change something in the clip in Melodyne is there a way to go back and edit.
  7. Is there something I can do to stop Melodyne from switching tracks and moving away from the clip I am working on when I stop the transport. Let me explain. I click on the clip I am working on. Make adjustments or whatever. Hit play and when I stop the transport it switches to another track instead of staying on the track I was working on. It does return to the begin point, but it is no longer on the correct track. Thanks
  8. I almost had my mix done, and was doing some final recording on the lead voca, and then disaster mix is missing certain lead clips in the track with Melodyne. For some reason most of the lead vocal with Melodyne is not playing. If I remove melodyne from the track it plays fine, but if I put it back it is muted. If I create a new Melodyne on the same clip it works. Any ideas are much appreciated. Thank you
  9. I seem to be having a problem with the SAMPLE RATE and the BUFFER SIZE. All of a sudden I will start to get noise, and I see that the SAMPLE RATE and BUFFER SIZE have changed. I can sometimes adjust it back to where it was, but a lot of times it ends up with my computer crashing with the blue screen of death. I believe the project sample rate is set to 48khz, and buffer is 1024. Things go bad when it switches by itself to another setting i.e. 256 buffer, and the sample rate changes to something else. I am using a Presonus Firestudio Tube. it using a universal control to set the sample rate and the buffer size. I don't know, maybe my presonus is going bad or maybe just me. If anyone can give me input on this it is much appreciated. Thank you!
  10. Sorry my friend. I don't know why that body of text came back up. I had to delete it now to write the post I wanted. Thank you for your help. I now need to see if I can find out about the sample rate and buffer changes problem I am having.
  11. I a using a presonus Firestudio Tube. It has a universal control where I can set the Sample Rate, and the Buffer Size. I have been having problems with my Cakewalk projects. The universal control is set to 1024 , and the buffer was either 48 or 44.1 not sure which it was, but I will go to play, and I get a bunch of noise. I noticed that the Buffer size has changed by itself to a much lower number like 256 buffer size, and maybe 96.0 KHZ. Any ideas are much appreciated. It doesn't happen all of the time. It does enough to be a problem especially if I leave the computer for a while and come back Thank you
  12. I had paid for Cakewalk, and updates for years. Spent a lot of money on it. I love the software. The last update I did with Cakewalk was supposed to be all updates free there on out. I was most disappointed when they sold to Bandlab as I had never heard of it. I must admit since Bandlab has taken over I think it has been great. I don't know how they do it for free and even keep updating the software. I really appreciate it.
  13. Thank you all for your input. I was able to figure out the problem. I was exporting over 12 hours for a 5-minunte song. I don't know why the timeline went out that far. I was able to select everything from the end of the song to the end of the timeline. Then it exported correctly.
  14. You are right. I found out that instead of 5 minutes it is exporting 12:25 minutes. I am trying to figure out how extra time got on this 5-minute song. Do you know of a way to delete everything after the song. There isn't anything there, but when I say select all it goes out
