  1. Actually ... I used AudioSnap on the track - worked FLAWLESSLY -
  2. Does anyone know if there's a synth out there w/ that type of patch? I have a wav file, but it's not ticking in tempo w/ the tune and I'll like to sync the sound up with the piece. I have NI's Ultimate 10 if that matters ... but the libraries are HUGE, and as per usual, you can't make heads or tails out of anything from the descriptions. Thanks in advance for any help! Kev-
  3. Kind of a shuffle blues rock piece ... still a few harmonies to add. Added more parts to it yesterday. 09 Sweet Marguerta.mp3
  4. ... did something change in the Jan upgrade? It's flippin' out on me. I tried to apply it to a 3 minute song's kick track. It sometimes simply closes the problem ... after a long lock up. It simply says, "You gotta be kidding me.", and shuts down. The CPU pins (AMD Ryzen 3700 - 8 core - 16 threads) at 100%. I clipped the track into a shorter length. It worked. Then the transport refused to move. What is going on? It's damn near useless now, but for spot treatment.
  5. Nevermind. I just discovered they're stored in the project file. (Found the same question on other forums from years ago) They're burnt toast now. Sigh ... there goes my morning. :D
  6. I could just play them again, but I had the program crash, and it happened to delete my midi files (among other oddities). I store all my files in a single project folder. Is there a place where midi files are stored? I know where the audio files are ... but I just hope the midi (which are NOT loading w/ the project) can be found. I don't see a designated spot (file folder storage) in preferences for them. Any clue what to do? Thanks in advance!! Kev-
  7. It was quite the puzzle, even for the tech. Nothing appeared that out of place. The installation looked fine. He went through the installation files, and took out all unnecessary stuff -- extra waveshells that were superfluous -- so that each wave shell wasn't contributing to the wait on the scan, going through multiple unnecessary authorizations in unneeded repeats. Curious note there is that only the shells with the .vst3 file extension were needed. But, still, my system was hanging forever -- both on the scans, and whenever any plug was loaded. He sensed my frustration as he clicked to load a single plug into an empty project -- and 5 minutes had passed. He navigated to my user app files, and drilled down into Waves Central application -- where he highlighted the contents of the preferences folder and moved them out to the wall. He said, "I just wiped your preference cache. I'm going to let the program build a brand new one." We went back into CWBLS (Cakewalk BandLab Sonar), and did a scan. It took no time whatsoever to go through. Done in about 2 minutes -- and I have a LOT of plugins. He then observed, "I think you're going to like the results." Sure enough, the plugs popped and opened in less than 5 seconds -- never mind minutes. At that very moment, the cloudy skies parted, and a host of angels began to sing. I was simply a little too happily overwhelmed to record the event. 😀
  8. Waves support solved it. It was in the preferences file of Waves Central. He cleared that, and boom -- back to loading in seconds.
  9. It didn't. I just got done w/ it, and it's stuck again on loading the Waves plugins. I've heard their service is excellent, but also that the rollout of V10 had them swamped. Still -- if a few minutes on the phone can save me 10 minutes each time a project loads, then that's a good return on my investment!
  10. Thanks Craig! I will look that up. I've used Waves extensively over the years and likely have all SORTS of different timestamps all over the place. One of the issues I encountered was the scan finding the original Waveshell.dll -- and going -- "You don't have any of these plug ins anymore." 😁
  11. I was one of the folks that had some V9 plugs that I had to uninstall when I bought a new V10 plug, and then get the old plugs back in with the external installer. Quite the process it was. I also had to go into the User Data Files and eliminate a file -- which, I believe, confused Sonar -- as they originally wouldn't load AT ALL. I finally got them loading okay ... albeit sick slug (LOVE that description) slowly.
  12. I did install it twice already ... same behavior. Thanks for the comment, though. I'm going to try Craig's repair idea prior to a third install.
  13. I do have it off. The slow down occurs as they load. Each and every Waves Plug sticks on load -- but does so eventually -- after a good 5-10 minute wait.
  14. I'm having my doubts. I can't even get the scan to complete w/o hanging on one of the Waves plugs. Sigh -- On the positive side -- thinking it just was going to take another inordinately long time, I happened to get in a nice little power nap. ... but it got hung -- again ... so we keep trying and hoping for the best. :D
  15. I got everything working fine ... but the load times are cripplingly long. I'm still using the legacy version ... and have wondered if the Bandlabs updated version has solved the license check EVERY SINGLE TIME THE PROGRAM REOPENS. If so, I am in like Flynn ... but Sonar is the only audio program I have that has the "why don't I go brew some coffee as this loads" wait on the Waves plugs every time. Sony Sound Forge did it the first scan -- and then they load instantly. Has the BLCWS version improved the VST scan so it doesn't need to check every license every project load?
