  1. Thank you. I like the dark PRV view. I just wanted to make a few tweaks. I am okay for now but again thank you for the offer. Everyone in this forum is soooooo helpful. I wish all forums could be like this one. Again thank you, yeto
  2. That is very helpful. As always, thank you for taking time to help, yeto
  3. I found that the vertical grid beat lines are labeled "Beat Rules". As far as the NowTime line you can change the color of the triangle marker but not the line itself. I used a color picker and got the color of the line then I went into preferences/all colors and checked all similar colors and could not find a matching color so I don't think it is listed. Oh well, not the end of the world. Thank you for taking time to help, yeto
  4. Ahoy, Is it possible to change the color of the Now Time maker in Track and Piano roll View? Also, is it possible to change the color of the vertical beat grid lines in PRV? I have looked in "Preferences > Colors" but I can't figure out which parameter to change? Thank you in advance for any help, yeto
  5. I decided to keep Rapid Composer and Cakewalk separate so I don't think dragging will work for me. I want to keep everything as simple as possible. I am a guitar player/songwriter and all I need are simple keyboard, bass and drums backing tracks. I use piano roll view to input notes and beats. This process is just a little easier with Rapid Composer. Again, thank you for all your help, yeto
  6. You are right. That is what is happening. If I set the Now time to 0 it works fine. I am sorry for all the elementary questions. Thank you for taking time to help. Kind regards, yeto
  7. When I import a midi file into Cakewalk it does not snap to the start of the song. I have to drag it to the start of the song which is not a big problem but was wondering if there was a way to just click something and it would snap to the start of the song? Thank you for any help, yeto
  8. Rapid Composer is not showing up in instruments for me. How do I get it to show in instruments? Also, why would I want input echo on for all the tracks being controlled by RC. Would this be so that i can hear the tracks on playback? Thank you for taking time to reply. Your replies are always very detailed which is very helpful. Still learning, yeto
  9. How would I insert Rapid Composer in Cakewalk? I am new at this...any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you, yeto
  10. I don't know if you are familiar with Rapid Composer http://www.musicdevelopments.com/ but what I would like to do is combine Rapid Composer with Cakewalk. I need Cakewalk to add vocals to what I compose in Rapid Composer and I also like the sounds that SI-Electric Piano and SI-Bass Guitar offer versus what Rapid Composer has built in. I want to use the piano roll feature of Rapid Composer but everything else I would like to do in Cakewalk. Can you point me in the right direction to make this happen if it is even possible? Thank you in advance for any help, yeto
  11. Would it be possible to rename some of the ".prog" SI-Electric Piano and SI-Bass Guitar files to ".sf2 soundfont files" and copy them into a different program (Rapid Composer)? Thank you in advance for any help, yeto
  12. Yes, I searched but found the results confusing. I was hoping there was just "1" that everyone was using.
  13. Where to find a Rickenbacker bass guitar soundfont? Thank you in advance for any help, yeto

    Is Cakewalk gaining users/popularity with Bandlab?

    I am new at this and I have tried Studio One, MuLab, Tracktion 6, LMMS, Audacity, BandLab and CakeWalk. I found BandLab to be the easiest (almost too easy) to use but had to move over to CakeWalk (2nd easiest) as I couldn't find a way to do triplets with BandLab and I couldn't get a good bass guitar sound with BandLab's built in instruments. I know there are work arounds for both problems but Cakewalk takes care of both issues without going outside of the program. Three updates I would like to see in BandLab would be: 1) SI-Bass Guitar instrument 2) ability to do triplets 3) when using piano roll view I would like for the notes to show on the keyboard and by the cursor. Until these changes are made I will stick with CakeWalk as I am now making music with the help of this great forum which I think is another plus for CakeWalk. I don't think BandLab has a forum.
