  1. So getting back to everyone...I haven't seen the problem return. I got my new PC which is performing beautifully. So not sure if my old PC was part of the problem or not. Thanks again for the input...
  2. I'm not referring to the volume controller in that area...I was referring to the actual track that displays the midi notes that have been recorded. I have the volume controller drawn in on that track (seen in lower right part of video). That is where it's disappearing. Things might be changing now. I just got a new PC that is far superior according to the specs needed for Cakewalk. I'll get back to you if I see it happen again. Thanks for responding bitflipper.
  3. Hey guys - this is a new one to me. I'm working with the latest version of cakewalk By Bandlab, Windows 10. I have a midi keyboard track, I have a cakewalk Sonitus Reverb plugin on the track, and using a volume controller on the track as well. I'm comparing the track by arming and disarming the reverb to hear if I like it or not. When I disarm the Reverb my volume controller disappears. But when I arm the reverb it does not come back. It's still there but I need to bring it back manually. I just tried adding a Pan Controller and it does the same thing. Hope the video helps. I don't know why the video is so large. I have to zoom out to 50% to see the controller disappear at the bottom. Sorry. Cakewalk Issue.mp4
  4. I use both cwp and cwb for my projects. I initially save my work on the cwp first then cwb when finished for the day. Yes, I remember back when Cakewalk really messed up (quite a few years ago) and the bundle files were not functioning as they are supposed to. I opened and old file one day supposing everything was right. It took my wav files and moved them to different tracks, cut them up in pieces, unable to be restored without a ton of effort...not fun. Soooo it would appear I can't just turn off that feature for any and all future projects while saving them as cwb files. Very annoying but I can live with that. Just hoping for a quick fix. Thanks fellas.
  5. When I save my project as a cwb file a message comes up about audio snap. I don't use audio snap at all. Is there a way to disable this permanently so I don't have to see this message anymore? Thanks!

    Hi Mark - yeah it's more of an annoyance than help to me so I just have to deal with it. Appreciate the response.

    Thanks Teknot. It's a little annoyance to me that apparently I have to deal with.

    How do I get rid of this magnifying glass?
  9. Thank you all for the suggestions and help. I'm thinking I must be doing something at the time of creating the controllers that I need to put some effort into to determine how they are linked. I'll get back to you all if I can't figure it out.
  10. I'll give that a try - thanks.
  11. I've been using controllers in Cakewalk for many moons so I know how they work, how to edit, etc. That said, I've noticed in the last 6 months or so when I move a controller (not always) and move it up or down other controllers in separate tracks get grabbed and move at the same time. I do not have these other tracks selected yet they move as though I do. I'll hit control Z to undo, then do the exact same move again and it's fine. Any suggestions? Thanks!
  12. Wow - you seem to set yourself up for any possible language that may offend you so I'm not sure you'll believe anything you read about Cakewalk but I will try. I have been using Cakewalk since the time of it being a midi only platform back in the 90's. The transformation to Cakewalk By Bandlab has been amazing and I love it. I've read about other DAWs and realize two things. 1. All DAWs have flaws (wow I like that, lol). 2. They all record digital audio the same way. What you do with it is totally up to you. And btw, what kind of expectation do you have from a completely free DAW that has so much to offer? Yes all DAWs are different. I've recorded 15 tracks of audio simultaneously for 30 minutes with no issues. I use third party plugins as well as the included plugins and instruments. Basically your computer determines the complexity level of Cakewalk or any other DAW for that matter. Be sure to set up your settings correctly to ensure the best possible performance before judging it. This makes all the difference in the world. I hope this is some help to you and your experience with Cakewalk.
  13. Thank you for that sir. I had not heard of this before. I really appreciate this info!
  14. I just stated using SSL EQ and SSL Comp. These two plugins are creating distortion as well. Odd thing is, I used these on a different Cakewalk project just yesterday with no issues using these two plugins. But on this newest project bada bing...there it is. I just exported the track to give an sample of what I'm hearing. The exported track does not have the distortion on it. Odd. I'm running Windows 10 Cakewalk By Bandlab 2021.12 (Build 102, 64 bit) **** Note: Well I experimented after posting this. I changed my buffer size and it cleared up the issue.
