  1. Right on- I knew you had it figured out, just wasn't clear. I really do appreciate the test. I just could not figure out how to get ASIO4all as an input? It shows in Windows and it shows as an option in Cakewalk but when you choose it nothing happens. This was both with on board and with my Scarlett. But your tests sort of confirmed my expectations. I'm just working on my next video which is about using on board sound. I've been screwing around with different set ups and on different computers. My conclusion is for playback there is absolutely no issues at all. But for trying to input audio you are right back to needing an interface. First the better drivers, next the proper connectivity and third there's no easy way to have real time monitoring . Your stuck with turning on input echo and suffering the slap back delay. Fine if your recording Elvis tunes. So I was only hoping that asio4all might be a solution to the timing offset issue and get the RTL down lower. Looks like WDM or WASAPI is the no brainer.
  2. When I make tutorials using OBS I have to switch to WASAPI SHARED driver mode so OSB will capture Cakewalks output as well as my mike. Otherwise you need an external mixer. I end up with 2 input faders in OBS which is great so I can balance the mix between the narration and Cakewalk playback. Only issue is I have not figured out how to monitor this. The other bummer is you cannot demonstrate an ASIO set up in Cakewalk. So for that I use an external mixer. I have 4x4 interfaces but you could get by with a 2x2. I run interface output 3/4 into a stereo channel of the mixer. This will be my Cakewalk playback now.. I also plug the mike into the mixer I connect the mixers output to input 3/4 of interface. and then set inputs 3/4 as desktop audio in OBS. I like the mixer best as now I can also monitor the balance using either the mixer or my interface headphone jack. I can also monitor the signal level more accurately. OBS meters are sort of off the mark.
  3. Cakewalk can be easily set to auto save. And it most certainly always warns you to save if you try to close it. It actually warns you even if you didn’t change anything. It a good habit to open a new project using a template which you can either use the examples or make your own then it will be named and always saved. if you open a midi file you will need to use “save as” and choose “normal “ which will convert it into a CWP File. You should do this before you make any changes to it. in my signature are links to my tutorials on midi
  4. So what I see in @Glenn Stanton tests is on board audio outperforming ASIO4all. Is this correct. Glen do you get a warning when you run the RTL utility with asio4all. With my on board it warns me the information might be out by 50% because of the driver reporting incorrectly to the utility. I'm seeing at the same buffer setting asio4all is 32 ms RTL On board is 10 ms RTL So one again? why use asio4all? I don't see any benefits at all?? Won't your mixer work with WASAPI? In the loopback WDM was the best results. I'm getting 10 to 12 ms late offset with my on board audio on 3 different systems in WASAPI exclusive mode. That is not great but seems way better than the same setting when using any of my audio interfaces where the very lowest was around 58 ms. I will have to test the offset setting and see if I can get them to line up. This is getting interesting. I would still like to know if @paulo has tried a loopback to correct his offset and if it is stable.
  5. So you saved the project as a CWP file. How did you open it this morning? You probably opened the wrong file. The recent list can’t always be trusted. use the file menu and browse to the folder you keep your project in and open it from there. Cakewalk is very stable you just need to take the time to learn. Try watching the tutorials by Creative Sauce first.
  6. You realize this thread is over a year old. 🙄⏰
  7. You should really watch the tutorials on basic recording as from what you have written you are way off the mark. It takes to long for me to type basic instructions and the videos do a great job of explaining. we have a tutorials sub forum here and I recommend the videos by Creative Sauce. it’s well worth the time spent when you start out.
  8. Are you talking TRACKs or LANEs there's a difference. Lanes will be silenced.
  9. There's lots of info about working with clips. I never work with loops so I am not the right person to answer, But there's another thread just a few days ago and it sounded pretty simple to make loops match the song. There will be a bunch of videos about it too. I only showed the length tool as that is the closest Cakewalk comes to varispeed. True Varispeed changes the tempo and the pitch.
  10. I think the OP is just asking how to export the songs which Jonsey briefly answered. Myself from now on I'm waiting until there is a post count of 3 or more before I start typing. Has been a lot of 1 post topics lately.
  11. The Process Length tool does not change the pitch of the audio and you can go a certain percentage without noticeable artifacts. Any process to audio can cause artifacts as it is just re-arranging the ones and zeros. I myself use wave lab for this as I find the quality a little better. But I did try the Cakewalk tool a few times without audable issues. Can't remember the amount but I think I was only after speeding up a whole song by 20 BPM. I only processed the Mastered stereo file, not the whole multi track.
  12. In Cakewalk it’s found in the process menu.
  13. That’s right. Cakewalk is a standard windows program so all mouse behaviour is like any windows program. I do believe that for full touch screen behaviour the software needs to be designed from the ground up as in tablet or phone OS Cakewalk is pure windows 100% I think Bandlab would be touch screen friendly
  14. @Joel Stolarski Then you need to use the percussion setting in Melodyne. I would also try Drum Replacer it creates 3 tracks and you can mess with the sensitivity to get better results. Then what I do is drag the drum replacer track to a midi track You will still need to move the notes to the correct key to trigger the sounds you want But Drum replacer can sort out a bit more than Melodyne will
  15. @paulo So did you perform the loop back test and adjust your timing offset?
